Description

Retailers and distributors often sell products under their own labels, which makes private labeling a good option for plant-based companies looking to grow their volume. Brands, dedicated private labelers, and co-manufacturers can take advantage of this opportunity, and would benefit from developing a wide range of products to fit every category and access to R&D to meet unique needs of customers. Additional opportunities exist to serve as a broker, matching service, or marketplace to connect plant-based private label product providers and retail/distributor customers.
