Private Label food is transitioning from price, then quality too branded private label all the while garnering share from legacy food brand manufactures. Now there are even private label brand managers for fresh prepared ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat food. Legacy CPG’s companies are capitulating share to both in store fresh food and private label store branded products.
Convenience Stores, Grocery Stores, Supermarkets can benefit greatly by branding and building their private label ready-2-eat and heat-N-eat fresh prepared food. The Nielsen Company CEO David Calhoun when asked about the growth of private label or store brands, “Calhoun observed that retailer brands will continue to gain at the expense of secondary and smaller brands. "U.S. retailers are still in catch up mode toward world class brand strength," said Calhoun, who added retailers’ move into store brands is "not a zero-sum game. It’s a partnership to fulfill consumer needs." He said that 2 years ago.
