Coleman All Natural Meats, the leading legacy all-natural meat brand since 1875, announced a new rebranding effort to support the company’s strategic shift into more branded consumer retail and expand nationally into foodservice outlets. The move comes in response to positive customer feedback as well as growing consumer desire for claim-based meats, such as no antibiotics ever, no  added hormones and humanely raised crate free pork. 

"In recent years, consumers have become increasingly more knowledgeable about where their food comes from and in turn, demand greater transparency and clarity with food package claims," said Patricia Bridges, Coleman’s senior director of Marketing and Communications. "One third of consumers say that no antibiotics ever is a priority when purchasing meat1, so as we looked to grow new consumer-focused categories, we knew the look and feel of Coleman’s brand had to accurately reflect our key differentiating claims important to our shoppers.” 

Coleman conducted a series of consumer focus groups, in-depth interviews and a national online survey that tested design elements, packaging attributes and claims as part of the rebranding efforts. As a result, the all-natural premium brand will unveil a new logo and packaging that celebrates the brand’s family farm heritage and commitment to all-natural, humanely raised crate free pork sourced from American farmers, with no antibiotics ever, no added hormones and fed an all-vegetarian diet. The new packaging also features the tagline 

“Always Natural Since 1875,” which speaks to the longevity of the brand, against the background of a bright contemporary designed farm with clean, easy-to-read typeface. 

“For nearly 150 years my family has committed to high standards for animal care and quality ingredients. This has been part of our family business since the beginning. We believe saying ‘no’ is a good thing. If it’s not right for the families we serve and the animals our farmers raise, we say ‘no’ and always will,” said Mel Coleman Jr., fifth generation Coleman Family Member, spokesperson for Coleman All Natural Meats.

With the new logo and packaging, consumers will see a bigger on-shelf presence from Coleman as the brand expands various product lines including fresh primals and case ready pork, dinner sausage, ground pork and bacon, meeting consumer’s increased interest in new, exciting flavors. In addition, Coleman will shift all pork production to Heritage Duroc – known for abundant marbling, which results in a more tender, juicy and flavorful pork, making it more accessible for chefs and home cooks to enjoy. Coleman’s new packaging will start showing up in grocery retail in April 2024 with line expansions beginning to show up nationwide throughout the year.
