This week, we hosted our annual Best of Brand Awards during our North America Brand Summit to recognize the leaders and the brands that are delivering ground-breaking design, innovation, and strategy, enabling us to create irresistible experiences enjoyed by our consumers, every day.
The brands named below have repeatedly won the hearts and minds of consumers by proving they’re the best choice through our strategy of superiority – with irresistibly superior products. They have winning packaging designs, poignant and informative brand communication, superior retail execution, and deliver exceptional consumer and customer value.
This year, we have 94 brand and country combinations that cleared the bar during the past year to become a finalist. These brands represent over $1.5 billion dollars, more than half of the total growth of the company.
Congratulations to the following named to our P&G 2019 Best of Brand list.
Cascade Platinum is the brand’s hero, combining superior product and packaging to support the claim that “nothing cleans better.” This promise is realized through the brand’s “My Mom” advertising, featuring the innocent observations of a daughter watching her mom pre-wash the dishes – a task no longer required, thanks to Cascade.
Gain continues its journey to build the most iconic scent brand ever. Gain’s product innovations delight consumers with superior fragrance experiences such as “smack me in the face” scent with Scent Blast or a “light fresh scent” with Blissful Breeze, and a product that provides both a clean and fragrance experience with Gain Flings.
Febreze is educating consumers about the sources and causes of odor, helping them “breathe happy for good.” Their communication uses whimsical visuals to make the invisible, visible—both bad odors and their fresh air benefit. And in Korea, Febreze has reimagined creativity to merge the ad world with the music industry, with entertainment that will get you dancing.
The brand brought back Pepto’s iconic song and dance campaign while modernizing the tune with a boy-band, step-changed its packaging by dialing up its iconic drip, colors and 5-symptom claims, and strengthened its retail presence. All of these actions helped deliver a superior consumer proposition, delivering Pepto-Bismol’s best year ever.
Ariel is a stellar example of the superiority strategy at work with consumers choosing the brand for its outstanding stain removal action in one wash. They are also helping people tackle the toughest laundry challenges with Ariel 3-in-1 Pods. This campaign from France illustrates Ariel’s benefits and convenience, begging an obvious answer to, “Do You Pod?”
We also recognized several winning brand teams, with the top honors going to Downy/Lenor, Vicks, and Old Spice. These brands are recognized for growing across multiple markets over the past 3 years. Here are featured clips from the three winners:
