Brand Footprint uses consumer reach points (CRPs) to identify the most chosen brands in the world through analysing the penetration of a brand i.e. the number of buyers of a brand.

The report’s conclusions are drawn from thousands of brands bought by 986m households across 35 countries, it says.

Kantar says that of the 11,000 brands analysed in Brand Footprint in 2015, it says it saw 50% of the brands grow with the majority of these (75%) expanding their penetration and thus their CRPs.

In the UK Warburtons, the bread company, is the number one brand while Heinz, Mc Vitie’s, Hovis and Kingsmill were all in the top five.

On a global scale, Coca-Cola is the world’s number one brand, it says. Colgate, Maggi, Lifebuoy and Nescafe were in the top five brands.
