Superbrands is the world’s largest independent judge of branding. It identifies and pays tribute to exceptional brands by recognising, rewarding and reinforcing leading brands from all over the world. Superbrand status strengthens a brand’s position, adds prestige and sets the brand apart from its competitors. The criteria guidelines for selection included that of market dominance, longevity, goodwill, customer loyalty and overall market acceptance. “Amarula Cream received an outstanding grading of 92% overall”, comments Swanepoel.
Superbrands has launched programmes in over eighty countries around the world. These programmes aim to identify those brands that are performing above and beyond others within the market. At the heart of each programme is an independent and voluntary council of leading experts with a deep appreciation of the “brandscape” in the country being examined.
