Migros, the Swiss food manufacturing and retail group, is set to launch a third range of private-label products in its stores.

In terms of price, the M-Classic products will sit between Migros’s entry-level M-Budget line and its upmarket Sélection portfolio.

“Brands like Candida, Actilife, which is our health brand and Milette, will remain,” she said.
