Differentiate and grow through own exclusive brands (OEB)

We believe that the Kingfisher Group’s OEB product development is a significant source of value for our retail banners and their customers. OEB provides a strong point of differentiation for our retail banners in terms of design, functionality, sustainability, and value for money, as well as carrying a higher gross margin (on average) than branded products. We aim to grow our OEB sales further as we bring even more innovation to our ranges.
