Showcasing KwaZulu-Natal's Winning Brands
The FNB KZN Top Business Portfolio Awards are proud to showcase KwaZulu-Natal's winning brands. A brand is much more than a company's name or a label on packaging - its the image and value that consumers associate with a product or service offering. A large number of well known brands have been grown and driven from within KZN and have made an indelible mark on consumer behaviour. Many companies have histories that started in the early twentieth century and they continue to expand their footprints still further today. The brands have reached out locally, nationally and in many cases internationally.
