Britain’s top 100 brands for 2020

The Grocer is the UK’s leading magazine for Britain’s biggest sector, the food, drink and grocery market, and earlier this year the publication released a rundown of Britain’s biggest brands in 2020.

The list includes 100 UK brands and details information on sales statistics for the year, as well as a comparison to last years results.

The Big 5 Great British Brands!

5 (6) Warburtons – Sales: £656.2m (+3.4%)

Warburtons used to be a brand that was synonymous with bread, however their continued growth means bread is no longer the sole cash cow for the brand. They have made it their aim to also be the leader in other bakery segments too such as bagels and crumpets, an approach which has resulted in further growth this year.

This, combined with continued competitive pricing and high quality, means that Warburtons has been able to break into the big 5 for 2020.

4 (4) Walkers – Sales: £995.8m (–0.7%)

Walkers’ diverse selection and continued approach to releasing unique flavours and healthier options has resulted in the UK giant cementing their position in the UK’s top 5 brands.

It doesn’t look as though this attitude is going to stop any time sooner either, with the company’s managing director revealing that 2020 will be the businesses’ best 12 months in years, with a “drumbeat of activations and innovation” happening over at Walkers.

3 (3) Nestlé – Sales: £1,079.3m (+0.9%)

The first company to top over a billion pounds in sales on the list, Nestle is another giant that have made further strides this year. The confectionary company enjoyed another successful 12 months, with sales on Kit Kat and Milkybar alone gaining over 12 million units between them.

Further volume growth among popular cereals like Cheerios and Shreddies also contributed to Nestle’s success, which again secured them a place in Britain’s big 3.

2 (2) Coca-Cola – Sales: £1,355.1m (+3.1%)

Coca Cola is once again listed as Britain’s biggest soft drinks brand, after another successful calendar which saw the brand grow by over £40 million.

Much of this success was down to the sugar few options that Coca Cola provide, with healthier options again being a big hit with UK customers. In addition to this, the classic coke has maintained its popularity despite the introduction of sugar tax, and the launch of a variety of new products also contributed to a successful year for Coca Cola.

1 (1) Cadbury – Sales: £1,682.1m (+6.6%)

Maintaining their position as the confectionary kings is none other than Cadbury. Not only is Cadbury the UK’s biggest brand, it is also the fastest growing; up by a staggering £104.7 million on the previous year.

Marketing Activation Director Clare Low labelled it as “phenomenal” year to be “enormously” proud of, however this still may be an understatement.

Expectedly the chocolate confectionery range continues to be Cadbury’s prized asset, however Low explains that a combination of innovation and marketing investment has also contributed towards this success.
