England is a major player on the global economic front, home to a number of corporate giants that affect the economy, not only of the United Kingdom (comprising England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), but of the entire world. London alone is home to an impressive assortment of some of the world’s most successful names.
Some of the most famous brands that come from England include:
Tea is the national drink of England. It is no wonder, then, that some of the best known brews in the world hail from this country. PG Tips’ success is based on its budget-friendly price, its good taste and its cunning advertisements. It is manufactured by Unilever in the United Kingdom.
Twinings is an English tea that is now sold in over 100 different countries around the world. This company is approximately three centuries old and currently boasts around 200 different flavours and types of tea.
Bentley cars are classic favourites and have been gracing the English roads since the establishment of the company in 1919 by Mr WO Bentley himself. These elegant cars are costly, but ultimately glamorous. Volkswagen currently owns the Bentley brand.
