Brands of the Century

As part of the NFRN’s centenary celebrations we want to mark the Brands of the Century – those all important products that bring consumers back into your stores time and again. Throughout the rest of 2019 and at our centenary events including Annual Conference, trade events, district meetings and in future editions of The Fed  we will be highlighting the stand out products that have graced your shelves over the past 100 years, driving footfall and sales.

Independent retailers vote Cadbury as their top Brand of the Century

Cadbury has been voted the top Brand of the Century by independent retailers.

Coca-Cola and Red Bull took second and third spot in a closely fought competition that was run by the Federation of Independent Retailers (NFRN) on its website last summer. Read more


Competition winners confirmed

Our special competition in which we asked NFRN members which product they thought deserved to be named The Brand of the Century has now finished. Everyone who took part were entered into a prize draw for the chance to win some fabulous prizes including one of two iPads, two tickets to the NFL game between the Cincinnati Bengals and LA Rams on 27 October at Wembley Stadium (courtesy of Boost), plus a giant bar of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk!

During our National Council meeting in Liverpool on 15 October 2019, four lucky winners were pulled from a hat and notified of their prizes.

Thank you to everyone who took part.
