Nationwide face-to-face study in Poland on private labels

Research PMR carried out a study on a nationwide sample of Polish consumers. The study was conducted in September. The survey’s objective was to gain an insight into the shopping patterns of Polish consumers and their views on private labels.

The study revealed that the most recognisable private labels in Poland are Tesco and Real Quality, which are recognised by 61% of respondents. At the same time 60% recognise the Carrefour brand, and 40% - another Tesco brand - Tesco Korzystny Zakup.

According to the survey, among all private-labelled goods purchased by the respondents, the most frequently purchased categories are food and household cleaning products.

Nowadays the perception of own brands is changing in Poland and their traditional image of having low quality products is gradually fading. The purchase of private labels is no longer treated merely as a way to shop economically (66% of respondents think so) but rather as a clever, wise way to shop (56%). More than two-fifths of the interviewees claim that they buy private labels more often compared to a year ago and twenty-seven percent say that own brands constitute a significant part of their shopping.

The study was carried out in all the administrative regions of Poland (voivodships), between 16th and 20th of September. In each voivodship two cities were chosen: the capital and a town with between 10,000 and 100,000 inhabitants. Respondents were through random-route sampling. The sample comprised 416 consumers. The collected data was then submitted to weighting. The survey was conducted by face-to-face interview, at respondents’ homes. PMR surveyed those people responsible in their household for buying food and articles of everyday use.

Full results of the study have been published in the latest PMR report, entitled “Private label in Poland - Market analysis and development forecast”. A summary of the results can also be found in the free articles section of this site.
