Many of the brands represented by JMD are market-leaders in the categories in which they operate both in their home country and some on a worldwide level. One of JMD’s objectives is to ensure the gradual and sustained growth of its represented brands in order to build positions of leadership in the national market and to contribute to the brand’s performance on a global scale. The proof of this strategy’s success can be seen in the awards and certificates that are repeatedly awarded to brands represented by JMD: more or less every year one of its products is awarded a prize for its market performance. In this context, highlights include:
