The J M Smucker's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers

Within consumer foods and beverages, we are the branded market leader in the coffee, peanut butter, fruit spreads, shortening, sweetened condensed milk, ice cream toppings, and natural beverage categories in the U.S. Within pet food and pet snacks, we are the branded market leader in the dog snacks category in the U.S. In Canada, we are the branded market leader in the flour, pickles, canned milk, fruit spreads, shortening, and ice cream toppings categories. Our business is highly competitive as all of our brands compete for retail shelf space with other branded products as well as private label products.

In order to remain competitive, companies in the food industry need to consider emerging consumer preferences, technological advances, product and packaging innovations, and the continued growth of alternative store formats, including warehouse clubs, convenience stores, and e-commerce. The primary ways in which products and brands are distinguished are brand recognition, product quality, price, packaging, new product introductions, nutritional value, convenience, advertising, promotion, and the ability to identify and satisfy consumer preferences. Positive factors pertaining to our competitive position include well-recognized brands, high-quality products, consumer trust, experienced brand and category management, a single national grocery broker in the U.S., varied product offerings, product innovation, good customer service, and an integrated distribution network.

The packaged foods industry has been challenged recently by a general decline in sales volume in the center of the store. Certain evolving consumer trends have contributed to the decline, such as a heightened focus on health and wellness, an increased desire for fresh foods, and the growing impact of social media and e-commerce on consumer behavior. To address these dynamics, we continue to focus on innovation with an increased emphasis on products that satisfy evolving consumer trends.
In addition, private label has grown in recent years due to general economic uncertainty, improvements in private label quality, and the increased emphasis of store brands by retailers in an effort to cultivate customer loyalty. In the pet food and pet snacks categories, private label penetration has declined below levels seen in consumer food and beverage categories. We believe that both private label and leading brands play an important role in the food categories in which we compete, appealing to different consumer segments. We closely monitor the price gap or price premium between our brands and private label brands, with the view that value is about more than price and the expectation that #1 brands will continue to be an integral part of consumers’ shopping baskets.

In the U.S. Retail Coffee segment, the Folgers brand competes in the highly competitive U.S. packaged roast and ground coffee market with other retail coffee brands such as Maxwell House, Yuban, and Chock full o’Nuts. We participate in the premium coffee market through sales of Dunkin’ Donuts retail packaged coffee products, as well as with the Folgers Gourmet Selections® and Millstone® brands. Competitors include other brands such as Starbucks, Gevalia, Eight O’Clock, Seattle’s Best, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, and McCafe. Through a manufacturing and distribution agreement with Keurig, we compete in the single serve coffee market with the Folgers, Folgers Gourmet Selections, Millstone, and Café Bustelo® premium coffees K-Cup® pods. Additionally, under a new, multi-year agreement, at the beginning of fiscal 2016 we began selling Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup® pods to grocery chains, mass merchandisers, club stores, drug stores, dollar stores, home improvement stores, and online retailers. K-Cup competing brands include Green Mountain, Starbucks, Eight O’Clock, Maxwell House, and Gevalia, as well as many private label brands. We participate in the espresso coffee category with the Café Bustelo and Café Pilon® brands.
In the U.S. Retail Consumer Foods segment, the Jif brand has been the leader in the peanut butter category for over 20 years, competing primarily with Skippy, Peter Pan, and many private label brands.

In the evaporated milk category, we have a significant presence with our production of private label brands.

In the U.S. Retail Pet Foods segment, our pet products portfolio includes well-recognized national brands such as Meow Mix, Milk-Bone, Kibbles ’n Bits, Natural Balance, 9Lives, and Pup-Peroni, as well as other brand names and private label products. We hold the #1 market share in the dog snacks category (excluding rawhide), the #2 market share in both the dry and wet cat food categories, and the #3 market share in the dry dog food category.
