Swimming Helps Kellogg’s Achieve a Top 5 Brand Trust Position
26 Nov 2009
Kellogg’s association with the ASA and swimming has helped them to become the fourth most trusted family brand in the UK.
Research carried out by YouGov for advertising agency Isobel found Kellogg’s to be ranked the fourth most trusted brand behind Markets & Spencer, Co-operative and Boots. Almost 100 famous firms from Asda to Andrex were ranked by 1,500 Britons on criteria such as how they treat families or their social responsibility.
Kellogg’s have been involved with the ASA for the past 13 years and over that time have helped more than 2 million children learn to swim. Millions of badges and certificates have been awarded from beginners swimming their first 5 metres to the more challenging National Swim Awards which test swimmers on all strokes and aquatic sports.
Bruce Learner, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Kellogg’s, said; “Kellogg’s is very proud to be ranked in the top 5 trusted family brands. I’m sure our long standing association and active support in helping children to learn to swim has a real positive impact on consumers’ perceptions of us.”
