BrandTailors strategic brand consulting and design firm finalized the rebranding project developed for Kandia, consolidating the brands value and redefining its positioning on the Romanian confectionery market.
Built on Kandias statutory principles century old tradition, authenticity and uncompromised quality the visual identity developed by BrandTailors repositions the brand as being singular on the Romanian confectionery market, the only one to eliminate and surpass the clichs commonly encountered within the category. Thus, Kandias new brand identity highlights the main distinctive feature whose importance is definitive to the confectionery industry purity and the abundance of cocoa, as the most important ingredient, and the pleasure of its associated taste simultaneously unifying the brands presence across the different subcategories it is present on.

Contrary to the contemporary tendencies on the Romanian chocolate market - of mostly inappropriate emphasis of the products benefits - Kandias new brand identity is decisive to the entire category thanks to the differentiating package design approach strong colors and liquid forms are seductive to the consumers, but they do not deceive the iron-bound reality of the products quality and benefits.

The consumers multi-sensorial experience related to Kandia is completed by means of the brands visual territory, the element that consolidated Kandias brand identity as the reputational leader of the Romanian confectionery market.

To us, the rebranding program developed for Kandia bears a high emotional value. Raised from the bud, ever since 2004, Kandia benefited, with the help of BrandTailors, from an impressive boom both on the market and in the consumers hearts, so that it be certainly followed by a remarkable commercial ascent that will confirm, once and for all, Kandias evergreen nature and the brands unparalleled reputation, for over a century on the Romanian confectionery market. This firm belief stems from the simplest of facts: to understand and perfect the value of a brand, a branding company must not just hold, know and appreciate its own value. It must be the value itself.
