Welcome to the British Brands Group
We are a membership organisation dedicated to championing brands in the UK. Our objective is to ensure that the UK is a great place to create, build and sustain brands and that brands’ positive contribution to consumers, the economy and society is better understood by policy makers and others.
Our members include leading brand manufacturers of all sizes and we provide a forum for them to discuss issues affecting brands in the UK. We are the UK arm of AIM ( the European Brands Association ) and part of an integral network of similar national organisations around the world.
Brands, from A to Z
What is the definition of a brand? What benefits do brands bring to the consumer and to the economy, and why do some brands fail while others go on to conquer our hearts and minds? The British Brands Group has been giving careful thought to these and many other questions for over 20 years.
The British Brands Group delivers essential training for members and others. There are three courses: an introduction to the Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP), the Adjudicator and how to make trade negotiations fairer; a refresher on GSCOP, bringing your knowledge bang up to date; and Competition Compliance and how to trade effectively within the rules. Discover how training supports your business and find your nearest course.
Brands & Consumer Trust
Together with our European partners, the British Brands Group commissioned a major research project covering 9 European markets, the top 3 brands in 30 categories per country, the views of some 12,000 individuals and the purchasing behaviour of 150,000 households to create this landmark report.
The Brands Lecture 2016
What are the structural changes taking place in retail? How are retailers anticipating and responding to these? What innovations are coming to market? And what does it all mean for brand owners intent on ensuring that their products are presented to and available to shoppers when and where they wish to buy? In the 16th Brands Lecture, “Never mind the quality, feel the personalisation. The future of retailing”, Alan Giles of Saïd Business School, University of Oxford addresses these themes.
The Brands Blog
That brands are valuable is not a universally-held truth. Some consider them smoke and mirrors to sustain high prices, catalysts for unnecessary consumption or vehicles of cultural homogenisation. Others think and act differently, particularly if specific brands rather than brands collectively are considered. To them, their brand is a font of understanding, a frequently-used tool, a preferred choice, perhaps part of their self-expression and often worth a premium.read more
