Superbrands began in the UK in 1994 as a radio show on GLR (now BBC Radio London). The Superbrands organisation was founded in 1995 to focus on promoting the discipline of branding and identifying and paying tribute to exceptional brands. In 2002, India became the 25th country to officially join the nations running Superbrands programme.
