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.
