Lapte de Monor Milk Cartons

Monor, a milk products company in Romania, has launched a newly designed packaging line using black and white (3.5% fat), brown and white (1.5% fat) and dark brown and white (chocolate milk) cow skin designs. The new design is hoped to strengthen Monor’s reputation for fresh and natural quality. There’s a risk, though, that the squeamish will be turned off by the thought of real dairy cows with real skin and hair producing their milk.

The new design has been backed up with a video advertising campaign placing the cartons in a cartoon farm world.


The new design range was developed at Vitrina, Bucharest.

    It would be more disturbing if meat packaging took this approach wouldn’t it.

    On a Polish market from a long time!!!!

  • (Thanks for the feature.)

    Laciate from Poland has “cartoon”-like graphics, whereas our designer opted for a more photo-realistic approach. (Laciate does have a photo-realistic background on their website, that’s true. But the milk on the shelves in stores is with drawing of cow skin.)

    In this manner, you could compare a milk carton with a drawing of a cow (which most dairy producers do and do it originally, each with it’s own character – see Fulga) with a milk carton showing a picture of a real cow. The two milk carton have different product statements and positioning with their target’s perspective on milk.
