South Africa's 2014/2015 Icon Brands
From a South African perspective, an Icon Brand is one which unites us as a nation; brands used and loved by South Africans across age, income, race and language spectrums. The Icon Brands Survey by TGI answers these questions for us, in partnership with City Press and Rapport.
Icon brands are brands that define a common experience, often on a daily basis, to which South Africans are committed - they put their money where their mouths are. South Africans will even seek these brands out in countries outside South Africa.
Kenwood Food Processors are winners of the Blenders/Mixers/Juicers/Food Processors (Small Kitchen Appliances) Category, in the 2014/2015 Icon Brands Survey. Congratulations!
