It’s an homage to an Esquire cover last year featuring James Bond, aka Daniel Craig. And it’s another indication that we’re always thinking outside the box, working to help you do the same. Our PLBuyer Superstore on the cover is a great example of that. The store allows retailers and suppliers to connect as they never have before. If you haven’t used the store as yet, by all means check it out at www.plbuyerstore.com.
In addition to the typical listings, this year’s supplier directory brings you insights on supply chain management.
Also in this issue is an annual look at infrastructure elements such as equipment and packaging. And we bring you year-end sales numbers on a wide range of private label categories from our market information partner SymphonyIRI.
Need to know more about what’s ahead for private label? Then by all means come to PLBuyer’s first-ever private label conference June 5-7 in Chicago. From our retailer speakers to our industry experts, you’ll hear a full range of insights and actionable intelligence about key private label issues in separate speaker tracks on marketing, merchandising and product development. You’ll learn how to market your private labels as brands.
