The Superbrands Organisation

A Mark Of Excellence From its conception in 1993 and UK launch in 1994, Superbrands has grown into a global organisation and today operates in more that 92 countries around the world and across five continents – which makes “Superbrands” a truly global brand. Superbrands History Superbrands began life in 1994 as a radio show on GLR (now BBC London 94.9). This broadcast aimed to give ordinary consumers an insight into the significant brands that touched upon their lives. After the success of the show the Superbrands organisation was founded in 1995. Its mandate focused on promoting the discipline of branding and identifying and paying tribute to exceptional brands. At the time it was not imagined that within only a few years the organisation could have achieved such phenomenal success – or be the global authority that it is today. The first Superbrands reference book published in the UK contained brands ranging from international icons such as American Express and Coca-Cola to UK favourites like British Airways and Cadbury. The trend of mixing international and local brands highly rated by the relevant national selection process continues today. Sixteen percent of the brands from that first publication qualified and were featured in the tenth anniversary edition of Superbrands UK, published in 2005. Thirty-eight percent of those brands continue to be members internationally. Two further UK editions, each increasing in size and stature, were completed in 1996 and 1997. This paved the way for the first international Superbrands programme to be launched in Australia. Its publisher was Stephen P. Smith who created the Superbrands concept and founded the international organisation. In 2000, a sustained period of international growth ensued with Denmark, France, Hong Kong, Spain, Sweden and the USA beginning programmes. More recently, Argentina, Canada, Germany, Japan and South Africa have joined the international network. Exceptional growth has occurred in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Today, Superbrands is the world’s leading brand recognition platform and is established in more than 92 countries around the world. International operations are run on a license basis whereby local rights are awarded to experienced and highly qualified individuals. Each operational head forms part of the international editorial board acting as gate keepers to the Superbrands accolade and responsible for the integrity of the programme. Superbrands presents expert and consumer opinion on branding. The organisation promotes the discipline of branding and recognises the exceptional and most valued brands. THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT SUPERBRANDS Superbrands started life as a radio talk show broadcast on Greater London Radio (now BBC Radio London) in the UK. Superbrands launched in 1994 and the first book was published in London in 1995. Today, Superbrands operates in more than 92 countries worldwide, across five continents. Superbrands has published more than 35,000 brand case histories for over 4,500 of the worlds biggest and most valuable brands. Brands participating in more than 20 editions of Superbrands include international icons such as American Express, Avis, Coca-Cola, DHL, Gillette, McDonalds, Nokia, Philips and Sony. Coca-Cola has participated in over 50 Superbrands programmes around the world. The iconic Superbrands logo is widely recognised by consumers as a mark of brand excellence and distinction. On average, 70% of Asian consumers say that they are more likely to consider buying a brand they see associated with the Superbrands logo. Asian consumers also say that they consider brands displaying the Superbrands logo to be more trustworthy and of higher quality than other brands. • • • • • • • • •

10 The Superbrands Recipe HOW TO BECOME A SUPERBRAND ACCORDING TO MEMBERS OF THE SUPERBRANDS COUNCILA Superbrand never knows the word 'best,' it only knows the word 'better.' A Superbrand believes nothing is the best and it needs improvement from time to time while retaining its core personality. Every single complaint and compliment from customers counts for a Superbrand as they are the key to success and their perception toward the brand de nes what the brand really is. What's the most important for a Superbrand is to gain positive perception that exceeds the portrayed brand personality. The signi cant challenge for a Superbrand is to maintain its top-of-mind position in this fast-moving market. Thus, a Superbrand does not compete but it offers differentiation or something that never exists in the market before to always stay in the frontline. MR. CHARN SRIVIKORN Chairman Gaysorn Land Asset Management Co., Ltd.

Receiving a Superbrands Award isn't just an accolade; it's a testament to the relentless dedication, unwavering commitment, and outstanding quality that de ne the brands’ excellency across the industry. It's a remarkable reminder that we're not just building products or services; we're transforming and shaping enduring legacies in the hearts and minds of our customers, setting the bar for excellence, and creating new value standard for our beloved industries, and ultimately for our beloved customers. MR. THARAPUTH CHARUVATANA Group CEO of IPG Mediabrands Thailand What moves the needle from being a brand to being a Superbrand? Is it the difference in the branding efforts, of having market dominance and high customer loyalty ie. branding does this but Superbrands does more? Perhaps so. And in the age where humans continue to be the forefront at building Superbrands, Superbrands can also be built faster, and perhaps even better when technology is at play. Case it point with asking Chat GPT what is a ‘Superbrand’. Here’s what is revealed…. The term "Superbrand" is not a formal marketing or branding classi cation but rather a descriptive term used to denote brands that have risen above their competitors in terms of visibility, customer trust, and market presence.These brands are usually well-established and have successfully created a strong emotional connection with their target audience. Being recognised as a Superbrand can provide a competitive advantage, as it implies a high level of quality and trustworthiness to consumers. However, achieving Superbrand status requires consistent and exceptional branding efforts, product or service quality, and a deep understanding of consumer needs and preferences. I, the human, couldn’t agree more. Congratulations to all the Superbrands, and hope technology comes into play in creating your Superbrands. MS. PATHAMAWAN SATHAPORN CEO GroupM Thailand and President of Media Agency Association of Thailand A marketing guru once said: The world is driven by emotions.Therefore, consumers the world over are driven by love, passion, and faith powered by the Superbrands. However, the single most important success factor of becoming a Superbrand is through the speed of trust and the sustainability of that trust. Without trust, nothing can happen. All Superbrands have elevated far beyond the stage of Brand Love to the higher level of Brand Faith. Therefore it is pivotal for all Superbrands to protect this emotional bonding at all costs.When trust is broken, through consumer’s moment of truth which differs from brand promise and expectation, it is most dif cult to regain. Trust is the very soul of a Superbrand. And above all, Superbrand does not only excel in its business category, but will always strive to inspire others and make the whole world a better place to live. That is the true beauty and the power of a Superbrand! MR. DANAI CHANCHAOCHAI Chief Advisor DC Consultants And Marketing Communication Ltd. Throughout the current pandemic, brands have faced greater challenges in order to survive and be successful in these dark days.The pandemic has seen customers' buying habits change, customers are now making more purchases online which means that many purchases are for goods or services that the customer has no prior knowledge of and that makes branding even more important to allow customers to buy with con dence. Seeing the Superbrands Award Seal on a product means decision making is easier for customers as they can be certain that any product or service bearing that seal is one that they can trust and is good quality. Superbrands is a global arbiter of excellence in branding and is present in over 92 markets across the world making it the most trusted name in branding. MS. CHAMPAGNE THIANKHWAE Country Director Superbrands Thailand To overcome the furious tides of change, a Superbrand must consider doing business in a much more sustainable way. A Superbrand for the future is a brand committed to create impact not just for their own performance but for the people and the planet as well. Apart from brand and business gains, what we do must contribute to the greater good for our employees and consumers, our community and society, and the world we live in. As clients’ trusted partner for growth, Ogilvy was tasked with the elusive mission of seizing and creating new opportunities despite the decline in the marketplace.Thanks to our sustainable business approach, what we delivered for our clients was much more than growth numbers, but broader forms of lasting impact. MS. JIRAVARA VIRAYAVARDHANA Managing Director Ogilvy Thailand Marketing Solutions and Marketing Technology Tools Within the past recent years, the science of marketing has changed drastically; the ways we connect with our consumers have blossomed into different communicative means imaginable.The growth has sprout to answer to the changes in our consumer behaviours, requiring marketers and advertisers to come up with new marketing solutions to bridge the gap seamlessly and satisfactorily.To keep up with the fast-changing dynamism of the consumer, our industry has embraced the development of marketing technology tools to strengthen data collection, analytical skills, leads follow-up to closing sales to elevate customer lifetime value with brands. MarTech has become a vital integral part in the world of marketing and advertising, but what’s more riveting is the fact that MarTech alone will not survive a generation of mercurial and evolving consumers without the knowledge of their developers. As marketers and advertisers, we must stay ahead of MarTech, it’s key that we know how to use them and not be overwhelmed by their existence.With the cornerstone belief in our ‘Living consumers’ at Hakuhodo Group, utilising human comprehension, real experiences, and analytical skills by our people to capitalise on the use of AI to deliver the right marketing solutions are most quintessential.To maximise this new era of communication, we need to remember not only the new tools that we have in our pockets, but to invest in the people who can make their usage practical for brands, cultivating, decoding, and executing on these data to offer the best possible marketing solutions for brands to excel.

The company does not use nut paste or concentrate but rather always sources fresh whole nuts to produce one of the best quality almond milks in the market. Simple Foods was founded in 2015 by Miss Arisa Aramwatananont. At the time, almond milk had barely penetrated Thai market, so she made small batches for herself in her home kitchen and eventually started to sell small quantities to shops and eventually started selling to larger supermarkets and convenience stores, and the brand now enjoys Number One market share in Thailand and South East Asia. Simple Foods has expanded its sales channels to HORECA as well as mom-and-pop stores. The company has emphasised quality, value for money and never compromised on taste. Furthermore, Simple Foods was the first to commercialise “organic coconut flower nectar” into beverages that sell nationwide and has helped farmers monetise what used to be a “by-product” for them in their coconut farms. Simple Foods company is seeing increased consumer awareness and demand for alternative foods in Thailand and a willingness to spend on premium health products. For international markets they aim to expand to more than 30 countries that they currently export to. ACHIEVEMENTS Simple Foods has been recognised by many industry and consumer bodies.

HISTORY Founder Maurice Blackmore was an English immigrant whose ideas about health were way ahead of his time. His belief in the health-giving properties of herbs and minerals led him to develop a whole system of healthcare based on naturopathic principles. His views on natural health, preventive medicine, the environment and recycling were nothing short of radical in the 1930s, and his work opened the doors to new ways of treating illness and maximising health. Maurice Blackmore was responsible for starting Australia’s first health food store in Brisbane in 1938 and he worked with colleagues and friends to establish the country’s first naturopathic colleges and associations. His beliefs are still valid today and his teachings are incorporated into the training programs of many natural health practitioners. Marcus Blackmore, Maurice’s son, followed closely in his father’s footsteps studying naturopathy and dedicating himself to the business. With an innovative mindset and as a respected and passionate industry leader, Marcus expanded the company into Asia to make natural healthcare an important part of many people’s lives before stepping down from the Board in 2020. This strong naturopathic heritage and holistic approach to health remains at the heart of Blackmores today.
