Brand Ambition: Food and Beverage Private Brands & Beyond

What opportunities are there for brands to build more informed kinds of loyalty in today’s consumer-driven marketplace?  

Brands have traditionally been a powerful system of influence in consumer food culture.  

For many decades, food and beverage companies have invested significant resources in building their brands, carefully crafting an image they sought to project onto target consumer groups. Such efforts resulted in offering consumers a broad selection of unique products that span established national brands, popular local choices, creative emerging brands … and more recently retailers’ own private brands.  

The Hartman Group’s Brand Ambition: Food and Beverage Private Brands & Beyond report examines how trends in the American cultural landscape have affected the role brands play in consumers’ food lives today and provides future-looking guidance in several areas of possibilities: pricing, attributes, innovation, and operating in today’s online environment.  

The study then takes a deeper dive into the world of private brands: the role they play in consumers’ grocery repertoires, comparisons to name brands across a range of purchase criteria, perceptions of value vs. premium/organic/better-for-you private brands, and the flow of mutual benefit between retailers and their private brands. A spotlight on several categories offers insights relevant to other categories sharing similar characteristics.
