The Grocer has once again been named as the UK's leading trade magazine in a survey of business brands.

The magazine moved up two places to 148th on the 2011 Business Superbrands list, ahead of Jane's (151), Accountancy Age (307), Marketing Week (342) and Retail Week (439).

It also ranked ahead of industry big hitters Booker (308) as well as Lloyds TSB (181) and Accenture (187).

Having risen 120 places since 2009, The Grocer's ranking was "a testament to our agenda-setting output and stream of important news stories," said Adam Leyland, the magazine's editor.

Top of the list was Rolls-Royce, ­followed by BlackBerry, Microsoft, Google and Apple.
