The challenge

Frito Lay is a juggernaut in snack foods, always leading the snacking category into exciting new territories of flavor, form, occasions and above all satiety. In an ongoing effort to maintain its lead position the Doritos brand has to stay ahead of the curve and regularly make new news in the category.

Our approach

The team dug in deep into the latest consumer research and decided to focus on a benefit of great satiety through format, form, crunch and flavor for more occasions. We met with R&D to understand their capabilities and which potential formats might live under the Doritos Brand Latitude. We optimized winning ideas with consumers to perfect the shapes, flavors, naming, and packaging.
