Retail and consumer goods industries have been facing many challenges in a fast-paced, changing sector. Many trends from the global COVID-19 pandemic have continued, with price volatility remaining as much of an obstacle as ever.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict has further contributed to price inflation in the retail sector, with European consumers having many concerns.
There has been anxiousness and uncertainty among consumers, which has added to a down-market trend.
The impact of global inflation has made private labels an attractive alternative for consumers with limited budgets. Therefore, to meet the demand for variety, retailers have added many private-label products to their shelves.
The presence and availability of private-brand products is a great inflation fighter, with benefits extending beyond a cheaper total basket at checkout.
However, such a strategy can lead to reputational risks (use of more global suppliers, increased complexity, stricter regulations, etc).
The right blend of data and insight offers brands a way to tell a compelling private-label story to their consumers and streamline speed-to-market at a time of rapid consumer behaviour shifts.
But, how to empower grocery and private-label retailers with easy-to-use, comprehensive tools that bring together all the relevant information from the entire sourcing and supply chain?
