Report Description


Private label food and drinks category sales declined by -2.2% from 2015-16 and are forecasted to continue to decline into 2021. Increased confidence in the economy may lead many consumers to opt for name brands over store brands, especially for products located in the brand-centric center store area. Opportunities for retailers to elevate the perception of their store brands will come through product innovation, sampling, and increased ingredient transparency.
