Blog: Dean Bestjust-food closed for public holiday - but catch up with our top content here

Dean Best | 26 May 2014

We have downed tools today for the spring public holiday in England and Wales. However, while we are dodging the showers, those of you at work can catch up with some of our top content from the last seven days.

On Friday, in conjunction with Kantar Worldpanel, we published data on the leading food brands in the BRIC markets.

Kantar's Brand Footprint ranking, in its second year, seeks to show the brands being bought by the most households, the most often.

For those operating in these key emerging markets, the data makes for fascinating reading, with, in the main, local food brands dominating the lists.

However, international brands have made some gains, underlining the opportunity for companies from overseas.

Subscribers can check out the data here.

Elsewhere last week, our interview pages featured the CEOs of UK pork processor Cranswick and dairy company Adams Foods.

Both businesses have enjoyed growth in a challenging market and their chief executives discussed trading conditions and the outlook for their companies with us.

If you don't currently enjoy full access to just-food, don't forget you can take advantage of a special offer we are running. By clicking here, you can buy 30 days of access for just GBP1, EUR1 or US$1 (depending on where you are based).

We'll be back at our desks tomorrow.
