The next three weeks mark a turning point for brands seeking standout on shelf.  Online grocer Ocado is trialling a standout concept with Birds Eye, using subtle animation to bolster standout on the ‘virtual’ shelf.  Now, consumers buying Fish Fingers online will see brand mascot Clarence brought to life beside the packshot, acting in the same vein as a supermarket gondola.

This week our lunchtimes were spent sampling Fresh Bowls; a new concept from the New Covent Garden Soup Co.

We think they’ve done a soup-er job!
