In the year 1999, the company was known to be having a portfolio consisting of 1600 brands (Mulcaster 2009). There were only four brands having international sales exceeding 1 billion Euro, while more than 1,000 brands was responsible for generating only 8 per cent of the total sales in the company. The company is known to be following the compass strategy having four winning pillars in the year 2012 that include winning with innovation and brands, winning within the market platform, winning by improving continuously, and winning with individuals (Gareth 2013).
