These companies successfully find ways to innovate and differentiate their brands year after year. The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE:KO) leverages its huge distribution system to roll out new products all around the globe. The cola giant boasts more than 500 brands, including 16 billion-dollar brands. PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE:PEP), in conjunction with Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE:YUM)‘ Taco Bell, has been incredibly successful with its innovative Doritos Locos Taco shell, with more than 500 million sold since its March 2012 launch. (Doritos are produced by Frito-Lay, which Pepsi owns.) Kellogg Company (NYSE:K)’s emphasis on health-conscious offerings has strengthened its brand. And Berkshire Hathaway‘s acquisition of H.J. Heinz Company (NYSE:HNZ) signals that Warren Buffett sees immense value in its brand.
Foolish final takeaway
These four big-branded manufacturers continue to differentiate their products and find their way into consumers’ kitchens. The companies’ continued innovation spurs wildly sought-after products, building big brands into seemingly impenetrable blockbusters time and again.
