Yorkshire’s Wensleydale Creamery Targets a New Generation of Cheese Enthusiasts with Rebrand

Yorkshire-based Wensleydale Creamery, renowned for its iconic Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese has unveiled a brand refresh, to elevate its retail presence and capture a new generation of cheese lovers.

As part of the brand update, Wensleydale Creamery, the number one selling crumbly cheese brand1, has redesigned packaging for three of its key award-winning cheeses[1]Yorkshire Wensleydale (200g and 320g packs) and Yorkshire Wensleydale & Cranberries (180g) with younger shoppers in mind. Crafted to be bold and distinctive, whilst reinforcing its quality, and striking in its simplicity, the new look is underpinned by the brand’s proud Yorkshire heritage and provenance.

The iconic cow-inspired logo has been reworked and modernised, sitting more prominently and confidently on the packaging to make it stand out on shelves, with the new look embracing a brighter brand identity with the use of a bold and vibrant colour palette to aid visual appeal to a younger audience.

Given the brand’s proud Yorkshire roots, quality and freshness alongside heritage and provenance has been reinforced with the sign-off slogan ‘handcrafted in Hawes using local milk’ which are key distinctive qualities to the brand which underpin its official PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status.

Sandra Bell, Marketing Manager at Wensleydale Creamery comments: “Here at Wensleydale Creamery we have an unrivalled history and provenence in cheesemaking which is something that really sets us apart from other brands. Whilst our Yorkshire heritage is extremely important to us,  we also recognise the importance of adapting to different consumer preferences to appeal to a new generation of cheese enthusiasts.

“Our brand refresh is a really exciting chapter for our business – reflecting our high-quality cheeses, whilst bringing a more modern twist. We believe our new look will help us enhance  our position to be the crumbly cheese of choice with consumers, whilst providing us with a distinctive on-shelf presence in the cheese market which will appeal to a younger demographic and the next generation of Yorkshire Wensleydale fans.”

Wensleydale Creamery’s new packaging is set to roll out from October in major retailers across the UK.
