Wrong manufacturer?

May 30th, 2006 at 11:50 am

Have you ever contacted a company, only to find that they claimed they didn't sell the product you were complaining about?

In all the merging and licensing, brands have gotten a bit confused!

For example, www.pillsbury.com is part of the Betty Crocker family, and includes offers for Pillsbury refrigerated and frozen products. Call to ask about their flour or baked goods, they will tell you it's not their product. No further advice given...Pillsbury Baking is a major competitor!

www.pillsburybaking.com is owned by J.M. Smuckers! They have their own site, their own newsletter, and their own offers.

Similarly, while Plaxtex continues to manufacturer personal and baby products, Plaxtex BRAS, including that 18 hour bra, is owned by...Sara Lee! As is WonderBra. (If the pound cake doesn't put the pounds on, the bra will?)

This creates a challenge in contacting manufacturers for compliments, complaints, requesting assistance, or even getting signed up for the right newsletter and offers!

To help out, we've compiled a list of major manufacturers, along with their brands, newsletters, and the contact pages for the main manufacturer as well as the individual brands. While Jeffrey is still compiling information into the site, the basics are up, and more are getting added regularly!

Find a Brand or Contact

I hope this helps Big Grin

    Wow! Who would have thunk it? It would be impossible to find anything! So I guess M and M Mars could actually own ink? Weird!
