White Label Product

AAA

DEFINITION of 'White Label Product'

A product manufactured by one company that is packaged and sold by other companies under varying brand names. The end product appears as though it is being made by the marketer, when in reality it is being created by the manufacturing company.

In this case, the manufacturer can concentrate on making the product or service and focus on cost savings, rather than worrying about marketing, which will be handled by the companies that will sell the product.

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'White Label Product'

A common example of a white label product can be found in your local supermarket. You may have noticed that many of these stores have their own brand-name products, which usually sell at a discount relative to other well-known brands. The store-brand product is actually created by a manufacturing company that places the store's label on the final product in an attempt to make customers think it was created by the vendor.
