Retailers Salute Private Label Colonels
 
There is no stronger endorsement than to be formally recognized by your customers and the industry you serve. That alone makes the PLBuyer Category Colonels one of the most sought-after awards within the private label industry.

Since the awards’ inception in 2001, PLBuyer has asked retailers to select which suppliers are the leaders within their respective product categories.  In its 11-year history, the Category Colonel competition has grown from 60 product categories in 2001 to 109 categories in 2011.

The Category Colonels in 2011 saw some additional changes. For the first time, PLBuyer developed and published a ballot for retailers to use in their voting process. The ballot listed more than 300 companies active within the private label industry. Retailers also had the option of writing in their vote if their supplier of choice wasn’t included on the ballot.

Additionally, PLBuyer asked retailers to identify key criteria which further qualified their supplier as Category Colonel worthy. Among the criteria were attributes such as customer service, collaborative skills, product quality, innovation, merchandising & support, and efficiency.

Retailers embraced this new format wholeheartedly. PLBuyer received more votes than ever before in the 11 years of Category Colonel competition. In fact, the voting quadrupled over last year’s efforts. A huge thank you to all the retailers who took the time to vote.

The increased voting resulted in more companies receiving significant support from the retailer community. The amount of support retailers demonstrated for their trading partners served as the catalyst for PLBuyer to expand the 2011 Category Colonel program to recognize a Gold and a Silver recipient for each product category.

The evolution and growth of the Category Colonel program embodies the growth and sophistication occurring within the private label industry. Retailers are introducing private label products into new categories, developing premium offerings for their product portfolios, and advertising their private label programs to consumers.

A key component behind executing a successful private label program for any retailer is working with the right partner. Retailers need true business partners. A business partner that fuels the developmental processes with dynamic collaboration and a vision for success, emulates the standards and quality retailers want and consumers demand, and has an overall commitment to excellence.

That is what the Category Colonels stand for – successful business partnerships!

PLBuyer wants to congratulate both the retailers and the suppliers on achieving this level of success.
