Graeter’s Ice Cream Launches New Packaging, Just in Time for 150th Celebration
Graeter’s Ice Cream Revamps Pint Design with Innovative, New Look to Celebrate Major Milestone

CINCINNATI, OH (June 22, 2019)Graeter’s Ice Cream, family owned craft ice cream maker since 1870, has announced its new packaging design. This summer, in anticipation of their upcoming 150th year milestone celebration in 2020, Graeter’s has unveiled a new pint design that reflects the decadent indulgence that Graeter’s stands for. The new pint packaging will hit grocery store shelves and scoop shops in late Summer 2019.

Look for the new package first on some deliciously indulgent flavors including Salted Caramel, Oregon Strawberry and Cookies & Cream. This is the first packaging refresh since the brand last updated their pint design six years ago. Ice cream lovers can expect every Graeter’s flavor to adorn the new packaging by early 2020. In addition to the new packaging, the Graeter family will unveil additional 150-year celebration initiatives as the milestone draws near.

"Our new packaging reflects how we’ve grown as a brand over the last 150 years," shares Richard Graeter, 4th generation owner and President/CEO of Graeter’s Ice Cream. "We’ve enlarged ingredient images, showcasing the flavor profile and indulgence without being busy or overly designed. We’re proud of where we landed on the new pint design, and we hope ice cream lovers everywhere will continue to find our truly handcrafted flavors in stores across the country.”

The Graeter’s pints will feature a darker color palate, straying away from the traditional white packaging that frequents ice cream freezer doors. The darker color scheme conveys the indulgence of the Graeter’s flavor profiles, especially Graeter’s famous dark chocolate chips, intentionally maximizing space usage and composition. The simple, clean and traditional look reflects the lavish flavors unique to Graeter’s and seeks to reinforce the passion the Graeter family has for making generations of memories with the families they serve.
