Abstract: There is no doubt that private labels represent a new way how the retailer can build new and loyal customers. What must be mentioned connected with them, is the fact, that many potential customers still doubt about their quality.

As the research methods there were used the methods of survey, structured questionnaire (the total number of respondents was 1,264 randomly selected respondents with the age up to 30 years) and blind test. For a deeper analysis of the
obtained results, there were set out six assumptions and nine hypotheses, which were tested with the use of Pearson’s chi-square test, Fisher’s exact test, Cramer’s contingency coefficient and Phi coefficient. The results of the research
