Position: METRO's Own Brand Product Development
A contribution to the discussion on the quality of food in different countries
A number of governments and politicians in CEE countries and in Brussels have recently stated concerns that the food products sold in their markets seem to be of a lower quality than the products in other EU countries. The phenomenon of alleged “dual quality food” is also based on some studies carried on by Slovak, Czech, Hungarian authorities showing certain differences in taste, packaging, content, and color of products sold under the same brand-name in CEE and other EU countries.
Following METRO's approach for a transparent and responsible lobbying of our interests and clearly state our arguments and positions in a public debate we wish to explain the elements of our product policy for our own brands. We invite your for dialogue and looking forward to your comments.
