    Static Gaurd?????

    The non food products are a concern to me as the distribution channels could be different but I have great faith in BGS management and it probably was a package deal IE all or nothing.

    I trust our guys to peel off and dispose of non food brands if they see any issues.

    As to competition, I believe there may be several and PAM comes to mind ... I have never heard of Bakers but wife and daughters all use PAM.

    • Walmart is one of the bigger BGS customers. Static guard is already sold into Walmart so this is not a distribution problem.

      And like you, I have lots of faith in management.

    • I never heard of Baker's either but mentioned to my sweetie this morning that "the bean company"....(as New Englanders we have always eaten B&M) had bought Mrs. Dash. I mentioned they also bought some other products including something called Baker's Joy and she EXCLAIMED that it is great stuff, she uses it, "it's the best thing" etc. then she went to the cupboard and showed me the can she has.

      Now there is an anecdotal report for you....

      • It appears Bakers has only one formulation and is also hindered by poor/low advertisement/brand recognition, while PAM is more actively advertised and has 8 different formulations:

        --------

        What is the shelf life for PAM?

        Different PAM Cooking Sprays maintain best quality for different amounts of time. Here's the breakdown:
        PAM Original 16 months
        PAM Olive Oil 16 months
        PAM Butter 16 months
        PAM Baking 24 months
        PAM Organic Olive Oil 12 months
        PAM Organic Canola Oil 12 months
        PAM Professional® 12 months
        PAM Grilling 16 months

        ---------

        These two issues are one of the areas BGS shines ... marketing new formulations and increasing market awareness ... so adding these factors to the alluded high margins, I can see this a good add for BGS.

        Also if Bakers is a regional brand then there's geographic expansion possibilities for additional sales.
