Having known 2 people who worked for Heinz for many years I was told that Heinz do not make products for any other label or company other than their own.
It's the same with Kellogg's I'm given to understand. You can always tell the difference between their cereals & shop's own brands. They just don't compare.
I'm not too sure if these are made by the same company, but they are so similar that they must be
Despite all the "Brands" available, there are only a few companies.
L'oreal being one who own several of the major brands.
I have often wondered if you get what you pay for or if there are differences between the major brands and stores own ?
What do you think or know ?
Basically I thinkk you only get what you pay for but in some things it is enough, I think in moisturisers for instance.
Also perfumes, does anyone know how many perfume manufacturers there are ? are they all made by the same few companies ?
Has anyone come accross perfumes just like the big brands ?or can recommend good smell-a-likes ?
Wish I or someone else had an answeer to this one but on holidy in Bulgaria I bought a copy perfume from Lidls, I never buy coipies thinking they are so inferior, but this one was so good I bought some to come home with it was a copy of D&G Light Blue. I wrote to Lidls asking why we can't have such good stuff here in th UK, their reply was 'we have different procuring source but it's always nice to have compliments' Pah!! no good to us that.
I am sure that this is an area that we spend far too much money on, when we could be using cheaper but just as good alternatives ?
