  3. > Supermarket private labels: Growth following economic downturn

Introduction

The economic downturn in the UK has resulted in the migration of customers towards private label offerings. Furthermore, a decline in disposable income has resulted in consumers shopping for cheaper, good quality alternatives. This has provided supermarkets with the opportunity to establish their position as providers of cheap, good quality food products.

Features and benefits

* Analyzes how the economic downturn in the UK has provided supermarkets with the opportunity to increase profits through private labels.
* Explores how supermarkets are increasing their consumer base through segmented marketing.
* Assesses the potential threat private label products pose to branded labels.
* Looks at how supermarkets have improved their product quality and packaging in a bid to compete with branded labels.

Highlights

The growth in private labels has increased supermarket profit. There are two things that retailers are interested in, customers and profit, and private labels have helped attract both. Price is not the only driving force behind private labels; supermarkets are using segmented marketing to meet consumer demands.
Growth of private labels has raised concerns for leading food brands and more branded food manufacturers are forcing their way into the private label sector in order to maintain market share. Not only has the range and quality of store brands improved, so too has the packaging which has further narrowed the gap between private and branded labels.
Supermarkets have even extended their own-label packaging to look very similar to branded products. This is an interesting marketing strategy as consumer may be more willing to purchase items which resemble branded products. By improving on the packaging of products supermarkets are contributing to changing consumer perception.
