“The PLMA show is our innovation

pipeline and we have found so many new items and vendors there.” – Retailer

in the phenomenon, too. Store brands accounted for nearly 30% of all new dollar sales flowing into the U.S. retailing industry last year. Quality, innovation, and value are the fundamentals of why today’s shoppers continue to trust and fill their carts with store brands. This robust industry offers a combination of not only what a family needs but what they want in products that are socially and environmentally aware and support their desire for an overall healthier lifestyle.

Manufacturers and retailers are listening to those consumers. In partnership, they introduce value brands consumers can rely on as well as exclusive product offerings as a differentiator in today’s competitive retail market. This symbiotic phenomenon is key for the industry. Being able to easily pivot with changing consumer and product trends or surmount logistical challenges keeps the industry on the cutting edge of development and consistently provides retailers an assortment of products.
