Standing at a Crossroads, Private Brands and RevenueShield®

As we advised earlier this year in our report, The Power of Private Brands, one of food retail’s most effective strategic competitive tools and primary differentiator is under threat. Understanding disruptive consumer behavior as the competitive battle between food retail channels intensifies is critical to the success of your brand. Private brands effectively build customer loyalty when FMI members find the right balance, combining basic needs for which shoppers will return in combination with innovation and excitement. Finding the right balance requires creativity, experimentation and trial and error. RevenueShield® will protect FMI members as they find the right balance and achieve success for their private brands.
