We have developed, designed and produced over 50,000 SKU’s for our clients. As brand development and design experts, we’re highly experienced in creating and managing large scale, cross-category implementation programs.
“Instead of managing 10 separate own brands across multiple categories, we have now rolled everything into our two strongest brand equities with the most member loyalty—Wellsley Farms and Berkley Jensen. The result is a rationalized platform of own brands which better positions BJ’s Wholesale Club for future growth.”
