Private Brand Protection
Retailer Private Brands are increasing. Now more than ever, Retailers are themselves acting more as the manufacturer of a product than merely providing the shelf space. The products being private labelled are also becoming more complex. In the past, consumers were used to seeing most disposal and consumable products, food products, and personal care products. Now, electronics, tools, lighting, and appliances being private labelled is not only increasing, it's common. The added complexities associated with these products such as connectivity and battery power, make it more important now than ever to partner with Intertek to support the development and manage the risk of private label products which will lead to successful entry into the marketplace.
