Private Label: Popular and Trending
Since the recession a decade ago, private-label brands — items manufactured by a third party and sold under a retailer’s brand — have flourished and appear poised for continued growth in U.S. markets.

- Influential voices from industry research experts to retailers agree this is an opportunity worth watching, but for how long?
