Qualy, the margarine brand owned by Brazilian food group BRF, leapfrogged Nestle’s Maggi as the food brand purchased most often in the Latin American country last year, according to Kantar Worldpanel’s latest data on brand “footprints” worldwide. 

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

As in 2012, Maggi topped the worldwide poll for 2013 but was nudged off the top spot in Brazil.

Kantar told just-food Maggi’s “penetration” and frequency of purchase fell in Brazil last year – while Qualy’s scores on both measures were “stable”.

Soya, the cooking oil and margarine brand owned by US agrifood group Bunge, and Vitarella, the biscuit-to-pasta brand owned by Brazil’s M. Dias Branco, both entered the top five.
