A letter from our founder

An opinion letter from Udi Stryk The founder of Foodz Private labels CPG products are lower in price, provide the same quality and usually are prepared at the same factory lines and machines as the big brands do. As the years went by the private label branded products of CPG products grew and I couldn’t miss the growing commercials, billboards and ads of the supermarket chain for their private labels. As a customer I did try a few basic products and found again and again the same quality and even better with some products. I tried lousy private labels in some places but immediately stopped purchasing there. In most cases the experience with CPG private labels is good. By purchasing private labels I directed my extra money towards taking my wife and kids to good restaurants, Higher business investment and more food in general.  from my experience – it’s a better decision to eat cheaper.
