The award programme has established itself as a prestigious mark of branding success that local brand owners strive to attain. The Heritage Brand category pays tribute to homegrown brands that continue to embrace exceptional brand practices for more than 30 years. Award recipients are stringently evaluated and selected based on brand heritage and identity, brand strategic blueprint, and brand development and performance.gvt1iz1kjdzrehjsjuih
