Brand namecues appear to be important information chunks.To understand better the attributes whichconsumers use when choosing a particular brand,a consumer research study was undertaken acrosssix packaged grocery product fields. Confirmingthe earlier literature, between eight and tenattributes were used by consumers to make abrand choice and brand name information wasfrequently sought.
