5 Worst Swiss Brands

Now we will talk about some of the brands which do not hold the status of being the high quality trademark of Swiss products. You got to be very much careful about these brands; chances are you will encounter these brands only when you go to visit Switzerland.

Rivella

This is the brand of soda pop and this can be used for making beverages. But you need to be cautious as this is made up of milk serum. This brand is mostly present in the Switzerland and it hasn’t made any progress in getting its product around the world. Reasons could be the quality issues for sure.

Migros

This is another one of the brands of Switzerland which has not been globalized yet and there can be so many reasons behind this. If we track down its establishment it dates back to early quarter of 20th century. This brand was initiated from a little store located at the heart of Switzerland Zurich and then as years passed on it turned into one of the leading brands. Still you will find the products of this brand only in Switzerland and some part of Turkey so it is better to know this brand when you are traveling to Switzerland.

Ovomaltine

This is very well known powdery milk drink and very much consumed in most of the parts of Switzerland. You might have heard about this brand as Ovamaltine if you are living outside Switzerland. Not too much famous outside the world but still very much significant in Switzerland as it is used for the kids.

UBS bank

Have you heard about all those mysterious Swiss bank accounts? You surely have and this is one of the banks which is thought to be expert in tax strategies which are very tricky at times. This is the bank where the wealth of politicians from third world countries are kept and governments cannot access to them.

Movenpick Ice Cream (Nestle)

This is truly one of the best brands and it is regarded as one of the nestle brands as well. Well known for producing quality ice creams but it is not yet present in most of the countries outside Switzerland. If you happen to be in Switzerland then you should go for movenpick ice cream for sure.
