I want to display a product brand name in left column of product page. Can you help me to solve this ?

Thanks advance!!!


Go to local.xml and put this code:

    <reference name="left">
        <block type="catalog/product_view" name="product.brandname" as="product_brandname" template="catalog/product/brandname.phtml"/>

Now create new template file brandname.phtml at


Add this code in brandname.phtml

<?php $_product = $this->getProduct(); ?>
    echo $_product->getBrand(); 

Note: Change echo $_product->getBrand(); as per your BRAND attribute code

  • My attribute code is [manufacturer]. Then i want to call echo $_product->getmanufacturer(); ? – Vijayakumar May 21 '16 at 6:33
