Online supermarket group Picnic, which has a presence in the Netherlands, Germany and France, has launched a new range of 2,000 private-label SKUs, which forms part of its mission to 'democratise online grocery shopping', it said in a statement.
The group has worked alongside UK-based strategic design consultancy big fish for the last two years on the development of its multi-tier range, aiming to develop products that 'look good in their homes, instead of fighting for attention on the supermarket shelf', it added.
'A Fantastic Challenge'
“It was a fantastic challenge to work on a new range from scratch with my colleagues in the private label team at Picnic," commented Tettje Halbertsma of the Picnic private label team.
"We had many creative sessions with the big fish team and gradually saw it coming alive. It’s magic to see all the products together.”
