Hovis, the 380m bread brand from Premier Foods, is bringing back the iconic 'Little Brown Loaf' as part of a major autumn initiative.

The launch is part of a wider activity plan that also includes new packaging and a significant advertising campaign which will rejuvenate the Hovis brand and spearhead sales growth in the 1.6 billion bread category.

Replacing Hovis Square White, new Hovis Soft White will also help propel the brand's growth within the sector.

Packaging takes the form of a healthy sandwich to further convey freshness. Packs will feature one of three 'fillings' - a different one for each slice thickness. They will also carry a confident launch promotion - Irresistibly Soft or your Dough Back!

Product giveaways and money-off coupons will support the launch.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
