    For all the globalization and Americanization of Brazil it’s a surprise to see there are many
    different brands filling the Brazilian supermarket shelves.

    Talk about soft drinks and for the majority of Brazilians this term will evoke images of Coca-Cola. What about other
    products? To discover the answer to this question, Abras (Associação Brasileira de Supermercados—Brazilian Association of
    Supermarkets) ordered a study from the AC Nielsen research company regarding the brands and products preferred by
    Brazilians. The report, called "Sale Leaders," is an extensive portrait of the nation’s tastes and preferences, listing the five
    best-selling brands for 140 product categories. For all the globalization and Americanization of Brazil it’s a surprise to see there are
    many different brands filling the Brazilian supermarket shelves.

    Minalba, for example, is the leading brand in the mineral water category. The bottled water sector grew 20.4 percent
    in the last 12 months, selling 459.3 million liters of the product and earning $101 million. In the house cleaning products’
    category, which made almost $700 million, Pinho Sol is the champion of household disinfectants.

    Elefante is the tomato paste that most people buy, but Pomarola is the favorite brand when Brazilians shop for
    spaghetti sauce. For canned vegetables Jurema is the favorite. As for coffee, Pilão is the leader in its category, with Bauducco
    being the brand most people prefer when buying cookies and cakes. Then there’s Danone, a word that in Brazil is synonymous
    with yogurt. While the yogurt market experienced a 3 percent reduction in the last 12 months, coffee grew 9.6 percent, selling
    232 thousand tons and earning $817 million, during the same period.

    Skol is the name most Brazilians think first when buying a beer, a market that sold 1.2 billion liters despite having a
    9.6 percent reduction in sales volume.
