For another year, dairy- and cheese-maker Schärdinger has maintained its position as Austria’s most-chosen brand, with a CRP of 58, according to Kantar’s Brand Footprint rankings, with a few changes notable in the top ten.

Family-run Austrian bakery brand Ölz also maintained its ranking from last year, placing second, with a CRP of 47, while local dairy brand NÖM has jumped by three places, to take third place, with a CRP of 25, displacing Iglo (4th, CRP 25), Milka (5th, CRP 25) and Knorr (6th, CRP 24). Elsewhere in the top ten, Ferrero (8th, CRP 20) overtakes Dr. Oetker (9th, CRP 20).

About The Methodology

The Brand Footprint rankings reveal the brands that are winning at that ‘moment of truth’, indicating the number of times that they are chosen by shoppers. Independent of revenue, it exposes the decisions that consumers are making at the point of sale. The consumer reach points (CRPs) of each brand are calculated by multiplying three metrics: the household population, penetration, and consumer choice. CRPs are Kantar’s measure of ranking the most successful brands by the number of times that they are chosen by consumers throughout the year.

Note that all CRP figures shown measure millions of consumer reach points – i.e. a CRP of 150 would indicate 150 million consumer reach points.
