How to reinvent the most traditional and beloved Brazilian cheese brand? 

Polenghi®, which has been on the market for nearly 80 years, understood the importance of consolidating its position in the market and trusted CBA B+G to draft a clear vision, based on a solid architecture that could rescue the brand’s essence and redefine the role of its various product lines. The end result of this effort is an inspiring repositioning, expressed in the evolution of the brand’s entire verbal and visual identity, as well as in the birth of Polenghi A Queijaria® (formerly Sélection) in the fine cheese segment. 

“We are very happy with the results. We rescued the brand values as well as our histor, and we built our mission based on “nurturing memories of affection”. All of that guided us to the new packaging, new brand strategy and communication.” – Tatiane Brandão, Polenghi, marketing director  

Cheeses made of memories

After months of consumer immersion through online diaries, mini-group activities and quantitative research, we captured a simple, yet powerful insight: the enormous affection people have for the brand. For many Brazilians, Polenghi® is a symbol of childhood, which is totally unique in this category, bringing to mind memories around the table and special moments with family. We rescued this emotional bond to define the essence of the brand: cheeses made of memories.

Solid strategy, structured offering

We used Brand Pulse®, our proprietary methodology, to translate this essence into solid positioning, with the clear purpose of “nurturing memories of affection”, allied with a unique personality, as inspiring as it is demanding. Next, we teamed up with Polenghi® and consumers during two intense days in which we structured the offerings, creating a portfolio that connects the brand’s attributes with consumer needs.

The evolution of the brand's entire identity

The repositioning is expressed in the evolution of the brand’s entire identity. First, we reimagined the brand’s way of communicating, with affectionate messages and a tone that reflects the brand’s personality.  We created a new seal that highlights the brand’s essence. The logo has taken on a new meaning with modern lines and the inclusion of elements that point to the brand’s history. The shield, a symbol of tradition, is now used as a graphic element used to share meaningful memories. New fonts help to give a feeling of familiarity.
