Recognizing the use of food retailers' own-labels as a particular form of competitive strategy, the A. seeks to show how such a strategy is embedded within the different retailing environments of the United Kingdom and USA. The UK food retailers are more allowed to execute own-label strategic action. In contrast, the US retailers have been restricted to lower levels of own-label trading. Different national contexts produce different power relations.
