The Task at Hand: Packaging and Naming Nostalgia in The Form of Authentic Curry Pastes.
Tangy Turmeric wished to create a range of products that could cater to those who, for some reason or another, we’re unable to experience the goodness of home-cooked food. In the traditional Indian context, Ghar Ka Khaana (as it’s called) is nutritious, wholesome, pure – and most importantly, delicious. But could it also be convenient?
That was how Tasty Tales was born. Their ready-to-cook curry pastes are free of preservatives, which is a double-whammy for their target audience since the new generation associates packaged food with additives and ‘synthetic’ taste.
Moreover, meticulous research has led them to craft these products in the way they were intended – straight from the grandmothers’ hidden cache of recipes, committed to nothing but a memory.
Envisaging the right nomenclature for a brand that wants to bring traditional, authentic and regional recipes to consumers in a convenient packaged format. Creating a packaging system for the brand, enabling differentiation and helping it stand out on the shelf.
Elephant worked with Tangy Turmeric, the parent brand to find the right nomenclature. The Grandmother became a central figure in the brand’s identity. Since her recipes would be passed down from one generation to the next in the form of oral storytelling sessions, the team created the nomenclature: ‘Tasty Tales’, and it was met with immediate acceptance. The name was easy on the tongue, had a good recall, and represented everything that was nostalgically delicious.
Based on the nomenclature, Elephant also designed a packaging system for the products that had strong visual cues for aroma, taste and authenticity – playing on the ‘grandmother’ to be the originator of regionally authentic recipes that are also convenient to execute.
The package itself is a stand-up sealable package with an interesting choice of a jar shape, which Elephant helped to enhance. Like one of those porcelain jars found in the days of old, complete with cloth and string graphics, the package hints at the promise of authentic goodness within, while also being convenient for the product.
