Leading sausage roll brand Wall’s has announced the biggest relaunch in its history, as it aims to reinforce its reputation for high quality, great taste and exceptional value with both new and existing shoppers.
The relaunch of the brand’s sausage roll range includes Wall’s biggest recipe change for almost a decade. Developed after a year long project involving in-depth consumer research and testing, the brand said it has enhanced every element to create its best sausage roll recipe to date.
“Our Wall’s Rolls range are a clear market leader, achieving record sales and growing 21 per cent over the past year. This relaunch represents a major investment in our brand quality and our ambition to delight our loyal consumers every single time,” Jason Manley, brand director at Wall’s Pastry, which is part of The Compleat Food Group, said.
“As the beacon brand in the category, our focus is on drawing new shoppers to the fixture and fuelling category growth through continuous improvement and product innovation.”
The new sausage rolls, made with premium cuts of pork shoulder and pork belly, are perfectly seasoned with a secret blend of herbs and spices developed by the Wall’s team of chefs. The upgraded sausage is wrapped in 64 layers of pastry, complete with a new glaze and rich, golden colour.
Critical to creating the new recipe was a series of independent research studies, designed to understand what makes the perfect sausage roll. Consumers rated the new recipe significantly higher across six categories including appearance, filling, texture and flavour, it said.
“We’ve listened to our consumers through every step in the process to create a sausage roll that’s better in every single way and has fresh new packaging to match. As always, at our core remains our firm commitment to the incredible great taste, high quality, and exceptional value that makes Wall’s Sausage Rolls’ Britain’s favourite,” Manley added.
All packaging across the Wall’s pastry range has also been given a refresh, with a vibrant, bold redesign that includes product photography for the first time to enhance standout on shelf.
The new recipe will be rolling out across the entire Wall’s sausage roll range during June and is expected to further build on the strong growth of the brand over the past year.
The launch will be supported with a significant programme of support including digital media, social media, consumer sampling, print advertising, PR and regular in-store promotional activity.
