New Coastal Look Headlines Wave of SeaPak Changes
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga., Feb. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co., the No. 1 shrimp brand within the frozen specialty seafood category, has ushered in 2012 with waves of changes, including a new coastal look, new packaging sizes and an interactive online rewards program.
New Logo and Packaging Graphics
Headlining the changes are SeaPak’s new logo and packaging graphic updates, developed by packaging firm Smith Design, of New Jersey.
The logo and packaging alterations include modifications aimed to spotlight SeaPak’s coastal location and expertise and enhance the brand’s on-shelf presence and space efficiency.
The new packaging graphics celebrate SeaPak’s coastal heritage on St. Simons Island. The new logo retains the brand’s landmark lighthouse and red and blue color scheme, which are core brand equity elements. Graphics were also updated to include new food photography and coastal imagery.
“The goal of updating package imagery was to prominently convey the delicious ‘taste of the coast’ that our products are renowned for,” said Daryl Miller, senior marketing manager, SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co. “Those of us who live on the coast have high expectations when it comes to great tasting seafood! We thought our packaging should reflect more about who we are and how delicious our products are, and we love the result!”
New “Family Size” Portfolio
The shrimp giant has also launched a new “Family Size” line of its most-popular items: Oven Crispy Butterfly Shrimp, Popcorn Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi, Coconut Shrimp, and Ready-to-Fry Breaded Butterfly Shrimp.
SeaPak’s Family Size line-up, offered at a suggested retail price of $9.99, offers significantly more ounces and servings per box, making it easier to feed a family.
“Here on the coast, when we prepare seafood, we often serve it on a large platter, full of a variety of tasty items. The new ‘Family Size’ offerings make serving seafood this way possible,” said Miller.
Efficient Packaging Sizes
For its core product line-up, SeaPak has unveiled new, more compact packaging sizes, which decrease waste and require less freezer space at home. “We’re pleased to unveil boxes that use less packaging materials. SeaPak lovers still get the same amount of shrimp as there were in the prior package and now they’ll have room for an additional box or two in their freezers,” said Miller.
Just in time for Lent, the highest-selling seafood season of the year, SeaPak has launched a new website that brings “The Taste of the Coast” to life. “SeaPak isn’t just about delicious seafood, it is also about sharing a coastal lifestyle,” said Miller. Designed to be easy and intuitive to find helpful information, whether a tasty recipe or product facts, the new SeaPak.com is sure to make a splash. Visitors will even be encouraged to share their own coastal memories, some of which will be integrated into the new site.

Our goal for the ‘Coast to Coast Adventure’ is to bring all of this to life through this entertaining, interactive ‘virtual’ experience. It’s the ideal way for us to share the joys of the coast with everyone – even those who might not be able to travel here,” said Miller.
