LONDON, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the midst of Brexit Britain, Attest has carried out research to find out about consumer perception of British brands and products. Does a 'Made in Britain' label make a difference to consumer brand perception?
Attest, a brand intelligence and consumer insights platform, surveyed 2,000 British and 2,000 American people, and these are some of the findings:
- 1 in 3 Americans admit they don't know any British brands. However, nearly 40 percent of Americans find 'Made in Britain' products 'desirable'
- 39 percent of Brits feel more positively toward British brands and products post-Brexit
- 3 in 4 people are more likely to buy a product with a 'Made in Britain' label
- 'Quality' is the most associated term with 'Made in Britain', followed by 'stylish', though 46 percent of people expect British-made products to be expensive
When asked to list their favorite British brands, Cadbury and M&S had the best brand perception for British participants, while Burberry came out on top as the favorite in the U.S.
"Britain's reputation for style and quality, both within the UK and overseas, is evident in our findings", says Mark Walker, Marketing Director at Attest. "Rather than Brexit diminishing Britain's reputation for consumer brands on the world stage, it appears to be presenting an opportunity to redefine 'Made in Britain' both at home and abroad."
John Noble, Director of the British Brands Group says: "British brands are a strong source of pride, but also of our international competitiveness, and it is encouraging to see this reflected in this research. British brands help shape perceptions of the UK around the world, with the Nation Brand Index rating the country 3rd out of 50 for the strength of its image and reputation. Strong brands will play a key role in our future success."
