I want to show the name of the product in my minicart, cart and checkout page, but it returns string(0) "". This is only occurs in the minicart, cart and checkout page. The brand names are visible on the catalog page. I have also enabled Store > Attributes > Product > Brand > Storefront > Properties > Visible on Catalog Pages on Storefront to Yes.

Here is what I have:

<strong class="product-item-brand">
    <?php if ($block->hasProductUrl()):?>
        <a href="<?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $block->getProductUrl() ?>"><?= $block->escapeHtml($product->getData('brand')); var_dump($block->escapeHtml($product->getData('brand'))); ?></a>
    <?php else: ?>
        <?= $block->escapeHtml($block->getProductBrand()) ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

How can I fix this problem? Thanks in advance!

    <type name="Magento\Checkout\CustomerData\AbstractItem">
        <plugin name="minicart-product-attribute" type="<vendor>\<module>\Plugin\Checkout\CustomerData\DefaultItem" />



namespace <vendor>\<module>\Plugin\Checkout\CustomerData;

class DefaultItem
    public function aroundGetItemData(
        \Magento\Checkout\CustomerData\AbstractItem $subject,
        \Closure $proceed,
        \Magento\Quote\Model\Quote\Item $item
    ) {
        $data = $proceed($item);
        $result['manufacturer'] = $item->getProduct()->getAttributeText('manufacturer');
        return \array_merge(
