What drives trust?

Consumers' reasons for citing a brand as their most trusted vary by category. Quality perceptions and taste drive which Food brands are most trusted, while taste preferences are most cited as the reason for favouring one Beverage brand over others. For Health and Beauty brands, trust is built on quality perceptions, effectiveness - does the brand meet personal needs - and perception of a fair price. For Household brands, consumers most often cite effectiveness and for Kids' brands, a guarantee of gentleness is most important.

When considering purchase of a new product, Canadians consider it extremely or very important that products comes from a brand that they trust:

  • 69% for a new Food & Beverage product
  • 70% for a new Health & Beauty product
  • 75% for a new Household product
  • 78% for a new Kids' product

How winners are determined?

More than 95,000 respondents, reflecting the profile of the Canadian Household Shopper, determined Canada's Most Trusted Brands for 2014 through their "top of mind" responses for categories in which they purchase. BrandSpark researchers analyzed the unaided responses and the reasons for choosing the brand. The Most Trusted Brands were ranked based on the greatest volume of mentions, and when the difference between brands was not statistically significant, ties were declared.

"Analyzing the reasons why consumers trust these brands allows us to uncover the drivers of trust and understand why specific brands resonate with consumers," added Levy.
