Massmart launches new small appliances private brand
As part of the expansion of its private brand offering, Massmart has acquired appliance brand, Eiger, as part of its Private Brand portfolio.

The acquisition of Eiger is the outcome of thorough analysis of the local appliance market.

“Through our ongoing research, we identified a clear gap in South Africa for a brand of well-priced, beautifully designed small appliances that not only have all the features customers expect in a premium product, but also add to the aesthetic appeal of their kitchen countertops” says Trevelyan Hall, Group Private Brand Merchandise Executive at Massmart. “This led us to Eiger, a relatively new brand in the market which has earned excellent reviews from customers since it launched.”

The group notes that even with rising pressure on household budgets, research shows that small appliances are still viewed as a necessity by the South African consumer. “As cooking oil prices rise, for example, the air fryer remains a popular item with customers and is now seen as a staple item in the kitchen,” says Hall. To add additional value, Eiger promotes a healthy modern lifestyle by offering free recipe books and meal planning templates to customers.
