New look for Furniss


One of Cornwall’s oldest and most-loved biscuit brands has teamed up with Whistlefish to revamp its Cornish biscuit gifting range.

“While we loved the images on our former packaging,” Furniss MD Chris Pauling explained, “we considered it was time for a refresh and so we teamed up with the very talented design team at Whistlefish, Cornwall to refresh the iconic Cornish scenes on our packaging.

“We took the decision to remain with the theme of iconic Cornish locations as that’s synonymous with Furniss, and so our new designs now include wonderful illustrations of St Michaels Mount, The Minack Theatre, Land’s End, Godrevy, Wheal Coates, Padstow, Port Isaac, Charlestown and St Ives.

“We simply love the new designs; the illustrations are just so fresh, are beautifully detailed and really depict the true essence of wonderful Cornwall.”

Pauling added: “We have also taken this opportunity to update the range with some new exciting flavours and recipes.  We wanted to ensure we give the consumer the best possible biscuit eating experience, so we have tweaked our shortbread recipes to add 30% more butter and have added some delicious new flavours.”

Just in time for what is expected to be Cornwall’s busiest holiday season for some years, the new designs will be hitting the shelves of local retailers at the beginning of June, as well as being available direct from Furniss’ online shop.
