Summary of news published in Week 47-2015

jpa4Sibil220SEVERAL of the news items featured in this week’s issue of the SIBIL newsletter reflect the still growing importance of brand names and labels. This has long been recognized by brand owners but, in recent years, major distributors’ private labels have acquired considerably greater importance and significance than in the past. So much so that some private labels have achieved a level of customer recognition and loyalty comparable to that enjoyed by commercial brands and even, in some cases, superior to that of the distributor. The benefits of this evolution are obvious but not without risks. While brand recognition enhances the positive qualities of the merchandise associated with the label, it also amplifies the negative effects of any shortcomings. Meeting consistently the promises of a label in terms of design and quality is one of the achievements that set apart the winners form the losers.
