Depot WPF managing partner Anna Lukanina is one of the key speakers. Her speech will focus on branding trends in Russia.
"We can surely say the high mutual interest of Russia and Brazil cause our countries are BRICS members. In resent years, the interaction of businesses in this group of countries has increased, — says Anna. — Therefore, the Brazilian colleagues asked me to focus in my speech on what branding trends are found in Russia. For me it will be valuable to talk with such FMCG producers as Bimbo, Tirolez, Britvic Ebba, Itambé, M. Dias Branco, Mondelez. Many of these companies are current customers of GLBA Brazil, and also we have worked with some of them in Russian. For example, Cargill company gets the new brand Floresco oil from Depot WPF. At the upcoming meeting we will also get acquainted with the experience of different countries with regard to various branding categories: bakery products, beverages, dairy products and cheese."
