Guru Investment Theses on Treehouse Foods Inc

Baron Funds Comments on TreeHouse Foods - Feb 21, 2014

TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (THS) is a leading vendor of private label food to supermarkets.While the food business is a low growth industry, private label is a fast growing segment within this industry. Private label growth allows TreeHouse to grow units at twice the rate of branded food companies, as it takes share from second tier products. This is because consumers save money on less expensive private label items, and retailers earn approximately 500 basis points higher margin selling the private label equivalent. Domestic private label penetration is only 17%. It surpasses 45% in many European countries. Additionally, TreeHouse's higher margin premium segment accounts for approximately 15% of sales but is the fastest growing segment, as retailers attempt to distinguish themselves from competition. We believe TreeHouse should continue to increase market share within the growing segment of private label foods, as it introduces additional products and integrates acquired product through its distribution network.

Baron Funds Comments on TreeHouse Foods Inc. - Nov 21, 2013

TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (THS) is a leading provider of private label food, one of the few growing segments within the food industry. Private label penetration in the U.S. is considerably lower relative to in other countries, despite the lower costs to consumers and 500 basis points higher margins to the retailer. We anticipate this market size to grow over time as retailers place more emphasis on offering a unique product selection, consumers recognize the value and suppliers grow their distribution capabilities. Additionally, the private label food industry is highly fragmented domestically and TreeHouse is rapidly consolidating the business with strategic product and geographic acquisitions. The company, in our opinion, should be able to increase its market share in this growing industry. Finally, and potentially most intriguing, is TreeHouse's ability to completely alter the private label industry. While, historically, private label was an inferior but cheaper product compared to branded goods, TreeHouse is increasingly producing higher quality products at similar prices to its branded competition. These products should produce higher revenue and superior margins for the company. (Michael Baron)
