Abstract: Recently, considerable academic and management interest has focussed on corporate heritage and, in particular on the corporate heritage brand notion. This article provides a thorough overview of the field and includes latest developments in the territory including the formal introduction of the organisational heritage concept. In this paper the contexts, foundations, fundamentals, and advances in the broad corporate heritage field are outlined. This critique also examines key constructs within the domain including corporate heritage brands, corporate heritage identity, and organisational heritage. Both theoretical and managerial aspects of the field are addressed. Drawing on the extant literature, the article explores five themes relating the area: contexts, foundations, fundamentals, advances, and empirical insights. Reference is made to prominent case study research from Great Britain and China namely Shepherd Neame (Britain’s oldest brewery with an official founding date of 1698), and Tong Ren Tang (the renowned traditional Chinese medicine corporate brand dating back to 1669).
