New research from Kantar Worldpanel reveals that Brits are opting for homegrown FMCG brands, with Warburtons topping the list.

The Brand Footprint ranking reveals the brands that are being bought by the most consumers, the most often. Warburtons was picked an average of 25 times a year by 86 per cent of UK households.

It is joined in the top 10 by fellow British brands McVities (bought 14 times per year by 89 per cent of UK households), Hovis (15 times by 74 per cent), Kingsmill (14 times by 74 per cent), Walkers (11 times by 73 per cent) and Cadbury’s Dairy Milk (9 times by 73 per cent).
