HAVING A MODEL WHICH BRINGS TOGETHER BRANDS & PRIVATE
LABEL ALLOWS A FULL CATEGORY DIALOGUE WITH THE RETAILER

THE ROLE OF BRANDS & PRIVATE LABEL CONTINUE TO WORK TOGETHER ACROSS THE
FREE FROM CATEGORY.
HOWEVER THERE ARE SOME KEY AREAS THAT SUPPLIERS WILL NEED TO TAKE NOTE AS
THE CATEGORY DEVELOPS AND MATURES IN THE UK. RETAILERS ARE TAKING NOTE,
AND THIS MEANS THAT TO BE SUCCCESFULL REGARDLESS OF BRAND OR PRIVATE
LABEL THERE ARE SOME KEY CONSIDERATIONS
ONE OF THE REASONS………………….

HOWEVER JUST BY ADDING “FREE FROM” DOESN’T MEAN
IT WILL BE SUCCESFUL. THE RETAILER (& CONSUMER)
WANTS MORE………

PRICING – AS THE CONSUMER DIVERSIFIES THE RETAILERS
ARE NOT JUST LOOKING AT THEIR OWN CATEGORY
£1.50 per item
£2.00 per item
£0.90 per item
As the consumer for Free From
continues to expand retailers are not
just looking to align the products in
their own category but also across
more established categories
£1.20 per item
TRUST – RETAILERS & CONSUMERS REQUIRE TRUST IN THE FREE
FROM CATEGORY – FOR OWN LAEL THE DEMAND CONTINUES TO
INCREASE BUT NOW BRANDS ALSO HAVE TO FOLLOW…
All Free From brand and private label suppliers now as a minimum have to provide an
insight into the validity of the raw material source, manufacturing facility and allergen
control process to secure listings within UK retailers. The process for listings lines is not a
straight forward one…..BEWARE ITS NOT JUST ABOUT PRICE!
SUPPLY – THE UK SUPPLY NETWORK CAN BE A COMPLICATED PROCESS,
PARTICUARLY IN FREE FROM. BE MINDFUL THAT FREE FROM CAN
SOMETIMES FOLLOW A DIFFERENT ROUTE TO MAINSTREAM GROCERY
“ Slow Moving Lines”
Maximising space and supply are top priority for the UK retailer. Free From due to its
current nature of diversified brands/suppliers usually mean there is a separate
distribution warehouse and network that suppliers are “asked” to buy into…
Inevitably this leads to additional costs at Stage 2 & 3. However it can provide an
open and clear view for both the supplier & retailer on Service Levels
