Season’s greetings from Primula

A festive favourite will be hitting shelves across the country as Primula launches its limited edition festive packaging tubes this month.

The fun and festive packaging tubes reinforces the identity of the spreadable (and squeezable!) cheese, which has been a dominant player in the seasonal market for many years.

Paul Lewney, Managing Director at Kavli UK, said: “In the winter months, Primula becomes a staple of consumers, who need a spreadable cheese for multiple occasions.

“Around the festive season people have many more reasons and opportunities to dine with friends, family and neighbours, and Primula offers consumers a convenient and easy way of preparing quick and tasty foods.”

Fans of Primula received an early Christmas present as well this year with its Primula Original and Primula Light range recently launching nationwide in Iceland.

Paul added: “Primula is unique in the spreadable cheese category, it has been able to retain huge appeal and loyalty with our core customers, and becomes an attractive offer to new customers alike who shop at Iceland.”

Primula is often associated with fun and happy times around the festive period but also for its philanthropic work, with the commitments by Kavli that profits go to charity through the Kavli Trust.

Paul said: “Consumers place considerable loyalty in brands which have an ongoing benefit to our communities, and Primula stands tall in the spreadable cheese market, because of its history of supporting good causes.”
