  • Hi Paula, From the consumer’s point of view, I can see how own brand is attarctive right now but I think you raise some powerful points against. The reaiity of course is that own brand will push smaller providers out of the marketplace unless they can come up with innovative ways to compete. From an Irish perspective, we’d seen the rise of an artizan food industry which continues to provide us with a bright light. I invited Margaret from @oldefarm to speak with me at a conference last week, and their’s is a wonderful and inspiring story.

    Hi Paula, some interesting comments and I suppose as in most things in life it cannot be seen as black or white. A smaller manufacturer that doesnt have a huge budget to build a brand finds it extremely challenging to break into a market. By producing own brand products it allows them to build a market and build volume on the back of the large retailers brand. Yes the retailer can find another supplier but then the supplier is also free to find an alternate retailer. The major retailers such as Tesco and Walmart are hesitant to stock the same smaller brands as each other but again while producing own brands you could supply to four or five major retailers and the perception is that they product is comming from different suppliers. I think the biggest danger is if own brand manufacture becomes too higher portion of your total turnover. Certian retailers have rules that will not allow you to supply them if the loss of their business will have a massive effect on your business. A view from the other side!!!

  • Thanks for your comment Niall. This year’s Edelman Trust Barometer research report indicated that consumers now need businesses to be there for more than just making a profit, they need to have a purpose too. Lots of big retailers are paying lip service to this but making it very difficult for small local producers to grow or just even to keep going. We know that all businesses need to turn a profit, but it’s got to be done in a way that will nurture a healthy local economy for the long term.

  • Thanks for your response Daniel. Yes, you’re right, there is an opportunity there for producers to build volume sales, there is just less security for them as there is no apparent consumer demand for their brand. It’s good to hear that there are some retailers who have a responsible attitude to their suppliers:) Very interesting points, thanks!

  • That would have got my dander up too.  I have a huge problem with the supermarkets sourcing foodstuffs and selling them under own label, fair enough if the producer gets the same price for it but do they? With supermarkets like Tesco’s and Dunnes the answer is probably going to be no. With Aldi, apparently they take a much lower margin on items such as vegetables and pay their suppliers a fair price and pay what they said they would but I don’t know if that works the same for their flour and bread etc.
    I have a huge problem with people buying Tesco milk for example, much is sourced from Northern Ireland where they pay a lower price for it.  If we all spend an extra €4 a week on guaranteed Irish products, we will create an extra 6000 jobs. As consumers, we have the power to turn this country around, we just have to think about how we spend those few euro each week.

  • Paula

    You’re dead right, Lorna! We all have a responsibility to think long term and think about what’s best for our local economy. 

  • Buying locally made products always makes sense. Not only will you be supporting your community, you will also be helping the growth of the local economy.

  • Thanks for putting this together Niall and delighted to be included too
