What is Superbrand of the year?
This annual event seeks to recognise and promote marketing excellence and professionalism by awarding and recognising top brands in Zimbabwe in the various sectors thereby awarding a seal of approval to the outstanding brand of the year. It is in the spirit of developing strong brands, strong companies and a strong economy that the Marketers Association of Zimbabwe has adopted the Super Brand concept.
