Recent years have witnessed a dramatic growth in private brands (also referred to as private label, store brands, own label and own brand). In 2017 every continent showed growth in market share of private brands. The global market share now approaches 17% of all food products sold and is increasing at an accelerating rate. In order to assist U.S. manufacturers in capturing this opportunity, Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast will be conducting a webinar exploring how to best develop new private brand opportunities around the world for U.S. manufacturers.  

Topics to be covered include:

  • Provide a fundamental understanding of store brand dynamics
  • Explore current trends that influence the market for U.S. made products around the world
  • Describe the selling and decision-making processes for private brands in several key markets
  • Identify useful sources of information, trade events, and other resources that may be helpful to manufacturers looking to enter the private brand marketplace
