Working with Kantar Worldpanel, just-food provides a data set showing the ten most-chosen food brands in the BRICs in 2013.

The data is from Kantar’s latest study into the “footprint” of brands around the world – a measure of how many households chose brands and how often.

In Russia, five of the top ten – including the top two – are not brands in the conventional sense but what the local industry calls trademarks. 

It’s a legacy of the former USSR, when the same brand could be produced by all manufacturers. Locally it is called a trademark, although it does not belong to anyone specifically, but is a brand in its own right.

Brands owned by multinationals made up half the list, with PepsiCo‘s Lay’s snacks brand at number four.

Orbit, the Wrigley-owned gum brand, tumbled three places to six.

Ferrero‘s Kinder and Mondelez International’s Alpen Gold were new entrants into the list at eight and nine respectively.
