The Trusted Brands Survey, commissioned by Reader’s Digest, has a long-established reputation as the premier measure of brand preference in Australia. The survey polled a representative sample of Australians, with over 2,468 respondents ranking brands on trust.
“It’s a big responsibility helping people with their health. When you put something in your mouth its essential you trust the company whose name is on the label,” said Blackmores Chairman, Marcus Blackmore. “We will never compromise on quality,” he said.
Blackmores’ commitment to quality and evidenced-based research forms the backbone of the business. As a matter of principle Blackmores will not use artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners in their products.
“To achieve this award again is a significant milestone for Blackmores, and a testament to the dedication of Blackmores staff who place such vital importance on earning the trust of our consumers,” said Blackmore.
“Its important that we’re accessible for advice people can trust, whether that’s when they call our advisory service or connect with us online,” he said.
For more than 80 years Blackmores has not only strived to provide high quality and efficacious products, it has also been dedicated to providing a range of services to consumers to empower them with knowledge to make decisions about their health.

It is the first program in Australia to offer consumers personal online health support from a team of qualified naturopaths.
“At Blackmores we deliver more to consumers than products. We are people’s partner in achieving health and wellbeing. Trust is the foundation of any partnership,” said Blackmore.
