Why Branded Ingredients Create Value for Food Suppliers

Today’s consumers and buyers have more product choices than ever. Which brand? Which one is the best? Where should I buy it?

With all of these choices, buyers rely on what they know (or perceive) when selecting the most meaningful choice. It is the choice that best reflects what they want or need at a particular time. Good brands save time for the buyer, and the buyer often equates the best brand with the best product.

For manufacturers and food sellers, using branded ingredients can strengthen perceptions of their own existing brand, or can potentially add an entirely new set of brand attributes. Branded ingredients build brand equity, enhancing the final product’s value and providing a stronger point of differentiation among competitors.

How does using branded ingredients save the manufacturer and food service professional money and increase profits? Let’s take a look.

Branded Ingredients Help Control Yield Variances

If the ingredients that you purchase consistently produce different batch yields or flavors because of ever changing product attributes, then you are probably losing money and quality.

Branded Ingredients Have Quality and Consistency

Using branded products in food manufacturing provides consistency in taste, flavor and price that is not impacted by changes in the labor supply, staff turnover or access to seasonal commodities and ingredients.

Customer Support Provides Value

Established brands are more likely to have the infrastructure in place to handle exceptional shipping requests, allow payment terms for its customers, and respond more quickly to changes in regulatory and governmental changes.
