The number one Indian brand award goes to


According to the survey results published in Business Standard last month, Indian consumers have ranked Amul as the number 1 brand of the country.

I am not really surprised with these findings, they fully deserve the accolades. Can you forget the hilarious hoardings spewed across the city that give you a hearty laugh everytime you see them.

The research was conducted in nine markets including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, The Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and India. Survey covered 12 major products and service categories. The research agency interviewed people aged between 15 to 64 years.

“Co-operation amongst co-operatives to serve the interests of the milk producers and providing quality products to consumers has been the back bone in Amul’s growth. This brings a lot of passion and energy in the system which has now been recognized by the consumers through this survey,” said, BM Vyas, Managing Director, Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation(GCMMF).

    @Mesmerized, Thanks for the link. I picked up those Amul ads from their site. Its amazing to see the ads that came out 15-20 years back, absolutely nostalgic. It is amazing how they have carried this out consistently for 40 years…
    @AmreekanDesi…I think those short 3-4 word rhymes are the heart of these ads :)
    @Ashwin…Here is the utterly butterly delicious cute girl for you…..

    Indeed a good branding and well deserved. However, I see these days the little girl is nowhere in the picture. If we recollect, it all started with the girl calling out “Utterly Butterly Delicious… Amul” in the ads all over which actually stays the brand mascot. Best part is Amul’s branding has done well more on Print media than on TV.
    Another good brand that I personally like is “Fevicol” It has been one of the most innovative brand.

    “Anhoni ko dhoni kar de!” Brilliant.

    I have always loved Amul’s ad

    The reason i love them is because they are so in context with the current happening’s are – that I cant not read them. The best part is they keep changing and they even more humorous every time. Here are the ads from 1967 to 2007 –
    I really liked the spin they did around Ganguly and his whole fiasco with the Indian Cricket Team.
