Home brand vs named brand

Are there brands that you used to buy that are no longer in your local supermarket? What do you think of all these 'home brands'? Are they just as good as the named brands, are they cheaper, or are you still hankering after something in particular that just seems to have disappeared from the shelves? Give us your opinion.

wages,unhealthy manufaction methods or something along those lines.
Sales people tell me that it is made by the same company,and i think why would they do that? The home brands lack colour on their packaging. but the brand names are set up for their labels so the cost they would have would be high to cater for a new home brand label ? Is the product inferior ?
I don`t know for sure as i`ve never gone into it.But if the products are really cheap,
then i`m sure all us pensioners and unemployed would have to buy home brand.
