Today private labels are  unlike the generic offerings of the past,  carefully managed and marketed in order to improve the retailers competitive edge. Private labels and store brands are the retailers way to differentiate . Many are now seen as brands in their own right and give best value rather than just the lowest price. At FFT we embrace new approaches to the development of private labels and store brands in the face of an increasingly competitive grocery landscape

Our secret for your success is a unique blend of in-deep business knowledge developed through partnership with our associates, backed by long A-brand experience and hands on retail insights.

Besides store brands you can also work with adapted versions of FFTs own umbrella brand concepts

Our own house brands are relevant and differentiating

We have developed flexible house brand platforms that can be used to bring a range of products sourced from all over Europe under one brand umbrella.

The concepts are modular and per category and does allow flexibility in terms of range and origin.

The FFT brand umbrellas identify 3 core components of the business that can be used as a blueprint when it comes down to developing a marketing strategy and tactics:

They are simple with a clear functional purpose
They are used in a consistent way (to create long term recognition)
Have an emotional impact. Emotion is what helps a consumer to connect with the brand. Think of origin and usage moment.
The brand umbrellas are available to be used in combination with your store brand.

Our brands also allow to give market protection in terms of (channel) exclusivity.

We apply umbrella brand strategy to retail and foodservice channels.
