Fresh & Easy Private Brand From Farm to Store In 24 Hours

Tesco’s El Segundo, California based, small format grocer Fresh & Easy is taking a page from its English parent and building Private Brands around more than packaged goods. They understand the value of the customer experience and combine it with locally sourced foods to create the “From Farm to Store in 24 Hours” Private Brand program. The program is a commitment by Fresh & Easy to provide its customers with the freshest produce possible and is a relevant and compelling brand proposition.
The future of Private Brand and customer engagement must extend the notion of retail owned brands beyond packaged goods to the customer experience. Retailers can and must provide engaging and authentic branded experiences that give consumers a reason to choose them over their competitor across the street.
