Eskort Braai Bacon

Ultimately, no matter how you like to braai, Eskort Braai Bacon will bring more to the experience than you could possibly imagine.

More importantly, it is now available to purchase – so stock up on Eskort Braai Bacon today!

Updated packaging

As part of our repositioning strategy, we have embarked on several marketing and branding projects – one of which was updating our existing packaging.

The rationale behind the packaging upgrade was that we wanted to stand out in a parity market and create category and product differentiation.

The country’s favourite bacon company has knocked this redesign out the park with a modern look that definitely makes these products stand out at your local store.

We believe that product packaging is more than just a way to contain and protect food; it is a key selling point that highlights the bacon’s best features while taking the customer on an emotional journey when shopping at their local store.

This packaging was therefore designed to make Eskort bacon products look just as good as they taste, while also doing an amazing job of protecting the quality of Eskort’s bacon range.

Each bacon variant is represented with a different accent colour, to help consumers identify their favourite cut, making differentiation on shelf easy and seamless.

So, next time you go shopping for bacon, make sure you look for your favourite Eskort bacon in its brand-new colour pack.
