It’s been a busy trade show season for Mercer Foods, and we’re excited to keep the momentum going at the Private Label Manufacturing Association’s annual trade show in Chicago. We hope to see you there! Operating for more than three decades, PLMA’s annual trade show brings the industry together to exhibit product, network, and buy and sell items. Retailers rely on the suppliers of their private labels to drive the success of their programs, which has an impact on the retailer’s reputation. Quality is one of the top priorities of private labels, directly resulting in increased sales.

At PLMA, supplier brands will be exhibiting goods that retailers can purchase and package as their own. Items exhibited at PLMA include food, beverages, pet items, health and beauty products, over-the-counter medicines, household items, kitchenware, lawn and garden supplies, and hardware. Not just an event for buying and selling, seminars and workshops are offered at PLMA for attendees to learn about private label trends, how to market to different demographics, and the latest and greatest in private label packaging options. Also, receptions and network opportunities are available.

Unleash the power of private label

It’s no secret that the consumer packaged goods market is thriving. Private label sales are setting new records. In 2015, the U.S. reached $118.4 billion in store brand sales and, within the past two years, annual sales were up five percent.

As retailers work to stay ahead of trends, remain competitive, and deliver exciting, demand-generating products to shelves, the PLMA trade show is more important than ever.

With the ability to deliver significant incremental sales, now is the time to take advantage of all that private labels can bring to your store and business. The 2017 PLMA trade show is an opportunity for buyers big and small to explore the latest and greatest of supplier offerings.
