Dr Alessandro Biraglia and Dr Bill Davvetas discuss their recent research, looking at the increased preference for independent brands, and how this can be affected depending on a country’s culture. They also discuss what larger organisations planning on acquiring independents need to know about how the acquisition can affect consumers’ perception of the brand.
