The 2021 edition of the Superbrands for Romania program is coming to an end, with the start of production of Superbrands for Romania book - Volume 10, which is expected to be published in December. Held under the tagline „Superbrands: The Braves”, this edition is dedicated to all the brave brands that have maintained both high quality standards and consumer trust, differentiating themselves in the market, in the context of the global Covid 19 pandemic. Their impeccable performance in a period marked by uncertainties and major changes, which have also had a significant impact on consumer preferences, has inspired the title of brave brands and Superbrand status in this special edition.
„All over the world, Superbrands mean reputation above all else: a brand equity that gains immense value in critical economic and social times. The more than 500 brands confirmed by a vote with the status of Superbrand, in a Romania that is experiencing a comprehensive health crisis, confirm this truth. We call them brave brands, the most suitable attribute for their tremendous achievement in keeping up the reputation, at a time of such great pressure. At the same time, we are grateful to the brands who have accepted the invitation to tell their story in Volume 10. Thanks to them, Superbrands continues to make history in Romania, offering unique brand models to the market. Congratulations to all the brave brands, Superbrands, the Braves, 2021! ", says Cătălina Rousseau, Country Manager of Superbrands Romania.
