UK: Great Little Grains launches breakfast cereal in a tube

Great Little Grains, a UK-based cereal firm, has announced the launch of a new line of breakfast cereal packed in a board tube.

Sown & Grown mueslis and granolas are promoted as "batch produced" and "expertly crafted in the heart of the English countryside" using "100% British grains".

Developed in partnership with packaging Alexir, the tube format is said to feature a plastic base sealed with an impact adhesive and also has a resealable closure designed to "lock in the freshness".

Commenting on the launch, Great Little Grains co-founder Phil Toms said: ‘Entering the competitive cereal category with a new brand required a unique point of difference. The use of the visually disruptive tube which when combined with the striking brand design gives the new Sown & Grown brand from Great Little Grains the opportunity to be noticed at the point of sale".
