In China there are fewer studies of private label brands (PLB’s) that take up less market share than generic brands and national brands. However, there is a successful development of PLB’s in the UK. Therefore, this thesis aims to explore the difference of consumer perceptions on PLB’s between China and the UK with national brands as a standard.

The literature review will review theories like brand equity/image, PLB’s and double jeopardy; PLB’s development compared with national brands in China and the UK; the influencing factors of consumer purchase behaviour and previous researches of consumers’ perceptions about PLB’s in China and the UK. The main objective of this part is to ascertain the difference of consumer’s perceptions between PLB’s and national brands in the UK.

Primary research will take the form of a non probability convenience sampling method to randomly select 200 members of the public from two shopping malls of Xidan and Wangfujing and several large-scale supermarkets in Beijing. Questionnaires will be used for data collection, and data is analysed by Snap statistical programme.

The finding shows that there is a significant difference of PLB’s perception between China and the UK. Before the evaluation of brand image, the awareness of PLB’s in China is understood and just less than half of respondents know the own-label biscuits. With reference to the literature reviewed on consumer perception in the UK, it can get the result that Chinese PLB’s are perceived lower than British PLB’s on the all attributes except “cheap” and “good value”.
