What do Kenyan Women buy when out shopping?

Brands Strategy and Design group has just released data and reports on the top 100 most loved brands by women in Kenya.

The premier event, headed by the BSD Chief Executive Officer, Eva Muraya, drew the attention of investors and manufacturers who are curious to know what exactly the country’s top spenders have in their checklists.

They also wanted to gather information on the type of new products they should be releasing next, the ones to keep on their conveyor belts and those to drop from their labels.
