The illustrator Benjamin Rabier is the famous illustrator of
"The laughing cow", who first drew the whale in an episode of " Les aventures de Gédéon". The character was chosen to represent the "La Baleine" brand.
At its creation in 1934,
the brand name was
"A la Baleine".
Colours were given to the packs. La Baleine's salts came in Coarse Sea Salt and Fine Sea Salt.
"A La Baleine" packs to highlight the iodine content of its sea salt.
The saltshaker "A La Baleine" won the packaging Oscars in 1963:

The competition was aimed at rewarding the most innovated packaging encompassing...
"A La Baleine" brand became "La Baleine".

The logo is reduced and becomes less and less like the initial representation.
La Baleine is featured on products.

The brand consists of Coarse and Fine Sea Salt, packed in cardboard and plastic boxes, in order to meet to the needs of everyone.
With a strong brand identity,
La Baleine's logo progresses in 1993, with more realistic traits, closer to the 1934's logo.

La Baleine is depicted
in its natural environment:
the Sea appears on its products.
La Baleine adds for the first time, Fleur de Sel (Flower of Salt).
La Baleine becomes
"The salt from every sea",
and offers its first Grey Salt from the Atlantic.

This period incorporates the launch of new packaging for the Baking Soda.
