Executive Summary Outcomes of the Business Program at «International Private Label Show – 2014» March 26, 2014, «Crocus Expo», Moscow On March 26, 2014, suppliers and representatives of retail chains met in the framework of the «International Private Label Show – 2014» to develop the «Agenda» for Private Label (PL) market, obtain strategic information and negotiate Private label manufacturing. Chains’ Wholesale Centre ™ (CWC) operating under “Imperia” technology has become an important component of the Business Program. 72 representatives of retail chains have visited the exhibitors’ stands and held over 1000 negotiation sessions. The exhibitors arranged presentations and taste tests of their products for retailers to find out specific requirements to the assortment in their category and negotiate prospective contracts. Chains’ Wholesale Centre hosted the representatives of a variety of chains including Metro Cash&Carry, X5 Retail Group (chains “Pyatorochka”, “Carusel” and “Perekrestok”), А5 (pharmacy chain), Billa, “Monetka”, «The Seventh Continent” and many others. According to Svetlana Danilkina from SPAR Russia B.V., today, Russians tend to treat private labels in a different way: while some time ago we faced suspicion, currently, shoppers are adhered to their own chain trade marks. PL is becoming a loyalty tool and a kind of protection from competitors.

However, PL is hampered by an acute shortage of manufacturers.

Comments

Anastasia Zmievskaya, Metro Cash&Carry: “Russia has just a handful of manufacturers capable to satisfy the quality standards. The country is huge and it would be feasible to decentralize production so as not to carry water through the whole country, for example. Everything will depend, whether the manufactures are available in a particular region”. Anastasia Zakharova, BILLA, REWE GROUP Russia, adds that in many cases, Russian companies are afraid of PL production as they don’t see evident benefits in it, for instance, bonus-free contracts, availability on the shelves of all chain stores, etc. «We are looking for manufacturers of glazed curd cakes, but cannot find them, - says Alexei Boitsov from System Region Mart. –Please contact me, if you have any pro». On her part, Elena Martynova form “Sem+Ya”, complained: «Sometimes big manufacturers - even those feeding federal chains - fail to sustain the quality standards, so we have to look for manufacturers abroad».

In the framework of Special Case Study, Pyotr Ofitserov, Director General of Real Work Management spoke on correct production targeting for PL. Marco Repezza, from Trade Marketing Studio (Italy) devoted his bright speech to successful PL-projects in Western Europe. In the final Forum session brilliantly moderated by Maksimilan Musselius, Executive Director of ECR-Russia, some Russian manufactures shared their private label expertise, including Natalia Zaitseva (Hygiene Technologies), Fedor Yanyshev (“Yanyshev”), Marina Petrova (“PiR” Product) and Zbigniew Rogalski (“TsentrUpakovki”). The delegates highlighted the high value of information obtained first hand and efficiency of the Event format.

FEEDBACK OF CHAINS’ REPRESENTATIVES

Organizer:

General Partner: Tel/Fax: +7 (495) 937 6861 Email: roza.deberdeeva@reedexpo.ru www.ipls-russia.ru


Thank you so much for the Business Program and assistance during Show visiting. Everything was arranged on a top level. “Crocus Expo” is an exiting exhibition platform with convenient parking, state-of-the-art pavilions and easy navigation inside. Guided trips across the Show are very useful, but it is rather difficult to drop on every exhibitor. Therefore, at first it would be useful to visit the Chains’ Wholesale Centre in traditional format, browse some stands to hold clarifying discussions and get an insight of samples of interest. I wish more participating suppliers to 2015 Show Organizers. Probably, if someone is not able to participate with the stand it will be possible to take part only in Chains’ Wholesale Centre. Besides, everybody with a stand is welcome to participate in Chains’ Wholesale Centre. Foreign speakers presenting surveys of European best practices would be worthy as well. Ekaterina Marten Director of PL Department Division Victoria (Dixy GC)

Many thanks for the opportunity to hold up to 20 high quality and successful negotiations within such short period (of which 5 would result in a contract). Everything was arranged very well, as always. Personal guides were very impressive! This service is very handy.

Alexei Boitsov Moscow Official Representative LLC “System RegionMart”

Thank you for efficient arrangement of the exhibition. We wish success to the Show. Your events are always perfectly arranged! Natalia Dyatlova Deputy Director for Retail Acquatoria, “Ekonomka”

It would be nice to see all categories in Chains’ Wholesale Centre: beverages, fresh food, household goods and textile. Unfortunately, we have not seen groceries or canned fish practically. Next year I would like to see a wider pool of manufacturers in various product categories, and producers should prepare for such exhibition with a greater degree of commitment. This event is specialized, so the participating manufacturers must be interested in PL production. Perhaps, they Organizer:

General Partner: Tel/Fax: +7 (495) 937 6861 Email: roza.deberdeeva@reedexpo.ru www.ipls-russia.ru


should prepare brief presentations on the terms of cooperation, including the minimum volume of package (label), minimum line load, logistic parameters, TOP-ratings, certificates, etc. This year, some manufacturers – even those recommended as a “must” for a visit – have shown little interest. As for "Retail Chains Day", as usual, IMPERIA CEC has organized everything on a top level, for which we express our special thanks! You are the best, thank you very much! Irina Azizova Marketing & Advertising Director GREEN Trade Chain

Thank you for the opportunity to attend the Business Program. Frankly speaking, the number of visitors has amazed me. Elena Milova Head of «Related Products» Department Utkonos Internet Hypermarket

We are happy with this specialized Show. In contrast with other exhibitions the manufacturers of IPLS are ready to offer the PL products. I think, it is essential to push up the participant’s number; we have seen just few producers of «fresh», beverages, juices, confectionary and vegetable oils. Nadezhda Protasovskaya Head of PL Department of New Trade Systems

The exhibition was really great! I visited many stands to find a lot of interesting products. We held around 40 negotiations, many with our existing suppliers; as a result, we will have 4-5 new contacts probably. The Retailer’s lounge with food and drinks was nice as well as the awards ceremony where I found out who represented this or that chain and had the opportunity for negotiations. Anastasia Shaporina Brand Manager Ol!Gud
