From Appealing to Branding
4.2H - Hall B1
Design for Promising Categories – Navigate the Healthcare Blue Ocean
Define A "Healthy" Brand Via Design

What does "healthy" mean? Is it about a cleaner label? More eco-friendly? Or adding functional ingredients?

Danish design company EVERLAND has not only refreshed brands like Mizone, including its zero-sugar series, and become a design partner of Carlsberg since 2003, designing the packaging for 100+ products in its brand family, but also helped the emerging French plant-based meat brand La Vie achieve the top SKU sales within 18 months of launch. Chief Strategy Officer Christian will analyze the multiple pathways to becoming a "healthy" brand and their respective design strategies.
