After close to six months of data collection and research, we can finally announce that food and drinks brand Innocent has ranked number one in the Social Brands 100.

The ranking is produced through a combination of detailed tracking and detailed analysis of social media customer and brand interaction to a post level, combined with detailed desk research and a third layer of an expert judging panel.

Innocent is one of over 300 brands nominated following a crowdsourced nomination process on Twitter that took place in January 2012.
