In March The Private Label Revolution was published. Now that the book has been read by many, it has received excellent reviews in recent months from many industry specialists, academics and other professionals.

Here is what the readers think of the book:

„An absolute must read for everybody involved in FMCG. The book is a source of deep insight at both retailer and manufacturer level“
Jonas Kærgaard Petersen, Global Business Development

„I really liked the predecessing book of IPLC on private label. It’s quite tough to find good books on the subject of private label despite its significant market share in food and beverages“
John Nener, Experienced multinational M&A and corporate development professional

“Just finished reading this book, immensely enjoyed it, and highly recommend it. What makes this book stand out is that it not only discusses private labels from the perspective of the retailer and the brand manufacturer, but also from the (dedicated) private label manufacturer and the supply industry. Anyone interested in understanding the intriguing world of store brands will benefit tremendously by reading this book”
Inge Geyskens, Professor of Marketing at Tilburg University

“A great book, definitely a must-read for all those who work in retail. Very well describes supplier and retailer relationship. I particularly liked the part about building private label architectures and packaging design creation. The supermarketification of discount retail is an extremly interesting topic in terms of market trends. I enjoyed reading it”
Tanja Perović Al Hamashi, Head of Own Brands Category Management Department Delhaize Srbija


“A very interesting read
Martijn Schreurs, Partner Gilde Buy Out Partners

“Despite the fairly high price of the book, it was worth every minute of reading. It gave us valuable insights that will help our company in its strategic decision-making in this extremely competitive market”
Alphons Thijssen, Geschäftsführer Frisch und Frost GmbH

“In my opinion this book can be considered as the new ‚Private Label Handbook’. The printing is of high quality and beautifully illustrated with many real-world examples of store brands. A book worth every minute of reading”
Laurens Sloot, Professor Retail Marketing at University of Groningen and Founder of EFMI Business School, Manager of the year 2017

“Interesting private label food for thought”
Arend Bouwer, Managing Director at Farm Dairy

“This book is probably the most comprehensive publication on retailer brands to date. It shares practical knowledge and experience that will provide a deeper understanding of the complexity of running a private-label business in an extremely competitive market”
European Supermarket News (ESM), Issue 3, 2019

“What a fantastic book from a good friend and industry expert. I recommend this book to every private label professional”
Juan De Paoli, Senior Vice President Private Brands at Ahold Delhaize

“I want to alert you to a wonderful new book on private labels. The book gives a comprehensive overview of the European private label scape, combining theory with consulting experience and research conducted by IPLC. It covers a broad set of hot topics, from private label proliferation and architecture to design and sourcing. Another nice feature of the book is that it contains a wealth of pictures (in color) of private label products, which should be a source of inspiration to retailers around the world. Each chapter concludes with useful takeaways. One “bonus” is a pictorial overview of the private label architecture of 20 retailers, ranging from the UK to Russia. I warmly recommend this book to anybody who is interested in private labels”
Jan Benedict Steenkamp, Author of Retail Disruptors, Global Brand Strategy, Brand Breakout and Private Label Strategy

“The Private Label Revolution discusses the discounter magic and often successful strategies of mainstream retailers. It explains why national brands struggle to keep up”

“Again an insightful book, very well worth reading!”
