Parker Williams’ creative concept for Sarson’s Specialty Pickling Blend marries a key consumer trend – helpful – with the vinegar’s brand promise of taking the stress and hassle out of pickling with an easy-to-use, ready-mixed solution.
The clear, informative label inspires all pickling enthusiasts with vibrant imagery, a recipe and a string-and-tag device that features the familiar Sarson’s dark red brand identity, while also alluding to the trend for home-made gifting.
Jo Saker, creative director at Parker Williams, said: “Home pickling has exploded, with some retailers posting a 400% increase in sales of pickling kits. As a keen vegetable grower and pickler myself, I know this is in part down to the health benefits of pickling, and in part because it really is a creative craft. But it’s also attributable to the back-to-basics approach and a yearning for honest, real food, and Sarson’s has acknowledged all these elements with a product that helps today’s time-pressed picklers with a practical, pre-mixed solution of vinegars. Our label design amplifies these attributes with helpful hints on picking to make it easy and convenient for consumers with vibrant, eye-catching creative.”
Noa Hasegawa, Sarson’s Brand Manager, said: “We wanted to create a product that gave customers a great new way to approach home pickling, developed by a heritage brand they trust. The Parker Williams team delivered something that stands out and importantly, reflects the idea behind the product. It will no doubt help many more food-lovers try their hand at pickling.”

Parker Williams won the Pickling Vinegar brief following its work on Sarson’s limited edition “Chip Lovers” bottle label, which launched in January.
