  • a detailed ratings table showing how the brands score in each of our 23 criticism categories
  • the stories from our database that we used to rate the brands
  • details of company ownership and full contact details
  • live links to all the websites referenced in the report plus definitions of all the categories used to rate the companies

Reports are no longer produced for new product guides.

All the information they contain is available (and more up-to-date) on the website.
