Who Is Today’s Private Brand Shopper? PLMALive!

This month’s edition of PLMALive! The video magazine from the Private Label Manufacturers Association, “Who Is Today’s Primary Shopper?” The piece takes a look at the challenge of understanding today’s primary consumer. That’s why PLMA commissioned GfK Roper to survey consumers themselves and find out who is actually doing the shopping. Jodi Daley and PLMA president Brian Sharoff follow the trail with special interviews with James Russo, Sr. Vice President, Global Consumer Insights at Nielsen and Bryan Gildenberg, Chief Knowledge Officer at Kantar Retail.
