But what is private label exactly? Is it the same as white label? What are the advantages? Should I have my own label? Find out more about private label and the advantages that come with it below.
What is private label?
Private label products are products that are manufactured or provided by one company for offer under another company’s brand. Simply put: you have your own brand manufactured by a specialized third party: a private label supplier or a contract manufacturer.
With a private label you create your own brand with packaging, labelling and product formulations tailored to your own requirements, creating a unique product.
Traditionally private labels were positioned as lower cost alternatives to national or international brands, but in recent years they are often positioned as “premium” brands to compete with existing “A-brands”. The reason is clear: private label offers many advantages to both consumers and brand owners and therefore this market is growing fast.
What is white label?
Private label products are sometimes also referred to as white label products, although they are not completely the same. White label products are usually standardized products produced by a manufacturer for sales to multiple retailers. The only distinction between the different retailers is in fact the labelling. With a private label one has the flexibility to tailor all parts of a product and create a unique brand and product. White label car care products tend to be more generic and less exclusive but usually have a shorter time-to-market and lower start-up or development cost in comparison to private label automotive products. TecLub can offer you both options.
