Ingredient Branding Jonathan Poland

Ingredient branding, also known as component branding or parts branding, is a marketing strategy that focuses on promoting the individual components or ingredients that go into a product rather than the product itself. This can involve branding the individual parts of a product with their own distinct logos, names, or packaging, or it can involve highlighting the unique features or benefits of the ingredients in marketing materials. The goal of ingredient branding is to create a positive association between the component and the finished product, and to differentiate the product from competitors by highlighting the high-quality or unique ingredients that it contains. Ingredient branding is often used in industries where the quality or uniqueness of the individual components is a key selling point, such as in the food, cosmetics, and automotive industries. The following are common types of ingredient branding.

Agricultural Products
A brand of organic olive oil is prominently displayed as an ingredient on a bag of potato chips.
