Roy Morgan data scientists analysed nominations from more than 20,000 Australians to identify the nation’s 20 most trusted brands, and the 20 most distrusted brands. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a retail sales boom on the back of record Government support for the economy, and it is perhaps unsurprising that leading supermarket and retail brands fill five of the top six spots as Australia’s most trusted brands. The latest Roy Morgan Risk Report reveals that the nation’s two largest supermarket brands, Woolworths and Coles, took out first and second places on the list of most trusted brands in the country in early 2021, followed closely by leading hardware retailer Bunnings Warehouse and fellow supermarket ALDI. The Roy Morgan Risk Report also reveals the top-20 list of Australia’s most distrusted brands, with several brands entering the top 10 for the first time including Amazon, Rio Tinto and Huawei, and brands such as Crown Resorts, Uber, Twitter and TikTok new entrants into the top 20 list. Leading banks including NAB, ANZ and CBA were among the big improvers on the distrust ladder with all three dropping well out of the top-10 most distrusted brands. The Roy Morgan Risk Monitor surveys approximately 1,800 Australians every month to measure levels of trust and distrust in more than 900 brands across 26 industry sectors.
