What are private label brands?

Generally, private label brands are seen as a cheaper alternative to well-known national or international brands. They are products which are manufactured by a third-party company and sold under another company’s brand name. Some private label brands are managed exclusively by a company for sale in a specific chain of stores. These products are called store brands. Based on sales, milk was the leading private label product in supermarkets in 2017 in the United States.
