Albertsons is adding more than 300 new products to its Signature Selects private label line and is also updating its branding.
The new branding aims to create a “recognizable brand presence that also allows for individuality across categories,” given the diversity of the lines, said Bill Luna, director of brand design and packaging operations.
The label includes a refreshed Signature Selects trademark tag that “provides an iconic and consistent brand mark that sits naturally on distinctive designs and reflects the unique qualities of each product in each category,” Luna said.
Geoff White, president of Albertsons Cos. Own Brands, said the refresh means “our signature family of brands aren’t like your parents’ store brands anymore.”
White added that the retailer is “laser-focused on innovations and staying at the forefront of culinary trends,” and customers should expect to see trends first at Albertsons stores, citing examples such as seasonal and holiday, ethnic and plant-based offerings
