My Private Brand today announced its first one-day Virtual Summit. The groundbreaking digitally native event will be focused on accelerating and amplifying sustainability in retailer-owned brands. The My Private Brand Virtual Sustainability Summit scheduled to take place on October 15, 2020. The event builds upon the highly successful Velocity Global: the My Private Brand Virtual Conference.

Our goal is to ask questions and challenge existing answers – about sustainable packaging, equitable/ethical sourcing, and authentic marketing (tell the story). The Summit is the day to find the answers that help the private brand industry get closer to what “sustainability” means to both you and your customers.

The summit will feature retail executives and the most influential sustainability leaders for a unique look into the pressing challenges, emerging trends, and significant opportunities sustainability presents for private brand.

  3. Dan Rahi, Head of Private Brand Execution & Design, Family Dollar
