Costco 购物省钱之 Kirkland 的代工品牌

导读:Kirkland 的代工厂商往往都是某个领域的巨头品牌哦!

Trader Joe's 一样,Costco 店中售卖很多自有品牌 Kirkland Signature 的商品。Kirkland 的商品不但质量有保证,价格也经常比同类商品便宜不少。Kirkland 的商品并非由 Costco 生产制作,而代工的那些厂商也不要以为是小作坊,这些「神秘」的厂商往往都是某个领域的巨头品牌哦!

下文内容,主要编译自 MoneyWise / Yahoo! News 的这篇文章。Kirkland Signature 除了 Costco 店里外,在 Amazon 上也有售,但是价格比 Costco 贵。

无法确认的制造商

Kirkland 的其他很多商品,我们无法断定其生产厂家,下面列出一些:

  • Gordon Biersch beer 与 Kirkland Craft Beers:西海岸 Costco 销售的 Kirkland 精酿啤酒,标签上印有 “Hopfen Und Malz Brewing Co”,其地址与 Gordon Biersch beer 的生产商地址吻合。不过在东海岸,如纽约的 Costco 销售的 Kirkland 精酿啤酒,上面印的是来自威斯康星 Stevens Point 的 “Bricks and Barley Brewing Company”,无法确定是不是生产 Saranac 和 Utica Club 的 Matt Brewing。
  • Humboldt Creamery ice cream 与 Kirkland Super Premium Vanilla Ice Cream:2009年,加州的 Humboldt 申请破产后,卖给了竞争对手 Crystal Creamery,并在 Walmart 等全国零售商上架。有报道称其为 Costco 生产香草冰激凌;Humboldt 自身品牌的冰淇淋也曾出现在 Costco 的货架上。
  • Ehrmann yogurt 与 Kirkland Organic Greek Yougurt:美国商人 Peter Cohan 在他2017年的书《Disciplined Growth Strategies》中声称,酸奶生产巨头 Ehrmann 为 Costco 生产希腊酸奶,但没有其他证据。

总结

Costco 旗下的 Kirkland Signature 产品一向以「价廉、物美、量大」著称。如果不是「品牌控」,选择 Kirkland Signature 产品每年可以省下不少钱。

  1. 我记着在哪块看过,大意就是Costco跟brand name manufacturer达成协议,内容之一就是品牌进驻Costco的前提是允许Costco随后以Kirkland Signature的名义卖同样的商品,但是一般还是找品牌方代工的。类似药品里面原研药和仿制药的关系吧。
