                                                                        3
                              HISTORY
1866-1905
       In the 1860s Henri Nestlé, a pharmacist developed a food for babies who
were unable to breastfeed. His first success was a premature infant who could
not tolerate his mother's milk or any of the usual substitutes. People quickly
recognized the value of the new product, after Nestlé's new formula saved the
child's life, and soon, Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé was being sold in much of
Europe.

1905-1918
      In 1905 Nestlé merged with the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company. By
the early 1900s, the company was operating factories in the United States, Britain,
Germany and Spain. World War I created new demand for dairy products in the
form of government contracts. By the end of the war, Nestlé's production had
more than doubled.

1918-1938
       After the war Government contracts dried up and consumers switched
back to fresh milk. However, Nestlé's management responded quickly,
streamlining operations and reducing debt. The 1920s saw Nestlé's first expansion
into new products, with chocolate the Company's second most important
activity.

1938-1944
       Nestlé felt the effects of World War II immediately. Profits dropped from $20
million in 1938 to $6 million in 1939. Factories were established in developing
countries, particularly Latin America. Ironically, the war helped with the
introduction of the Company's newest product, Nescafé, which was a staple
drink of the US military. Nestlé's production and sales rose in the wartime
economy.

1944-1975
      The end of World War II was the beginning of a dynamic phase for Nestlé.
Growth accelerated and companies were acquired. In 1947 came the merger
with Maggi seasonings and soups. Crosse & Blackwell followed in 1960, as did
Findus (1963), Libby's (1971) and Stouffer's (1973). Diversification came with a
shareholding in L'Oréal in 1974.

1975-1981
       Nestlé's growth in the developing world partially offset a slowdown in the
Company's traditional markets. Nestlé made its second venture outside the food
industry by acquiring Alcon Laboratories Inc.
                                                                                   4
1981-1995
     Nestlé divested a number of businesses1980 / 1984. In 1984, Nestlé's
improved bottom line allowed the Company to launch a new round of
acquisitions, the most important being American food giant Carnation.


1996-2002
        The first half of the 1990s proved to be favorable for Nestlé: trade barriers
crumbled and world markets developed into more or less integrated trading
areas. Since 1996, there have been acquisitions including San Pellegrino (1997),
Spillers Petfoods (1998) and Ralston Purina (2002). There were two major
acquisitions in North America, both in 2002: in July, Nestlé merged its U.S. ice
cream business into Dreyer's, and in August, a USD 2.6bn acquisition was
announced of Chef America, Inc.

2003 +
      The year 2003 started well with the acquisition of Mövenpick Ice Cream,
enhancing Nestlé's position as one of the world market leaders in this product
category. In 2006, Jenny Craig and Uncle Toby's were added to the Nestlé
portfolio and 2007 saw Novartis Medical Nutrition, Gerber and Henniez join the
Company

           4P’s OF MARKETING MIX
PRODUCT
PRODUCT LINE

confectionaries. It is provided in different flavors.
These flavors include mango, orange, plum,
rose, apple, mix fruit, apple orange, and mango
orange.

PACKAGING
      Nestle will design and produce the jam bottles and the wrappers by
keeping focus on the following purposes:
    To contain and protect the food products.
    For the attractiveness of the product using packing of the product as a
      tool.
    As nestle is relevant to food products which are highly perishable so
      packaging focuses on storage and convenience.
    Its packaging will be reusable by the customers.
            E.g. nestle bottles obtained from bottled jam.
    Packaging will be made more impressive especially by increasing the
      volume of bottles.

LABELING
     Nestle labeling will focus on persuasiveness.

                                                                                  17

       Jam as it gives on medical products
     Nestle Delicious Jam's label will give all information about their product like
       ingredients which will be used in it and all instructions regarding product.
     Retail price will also be shown on its label

BRAND
     Nestle products use the brand name Nestle. The customer who come to
purchase nestle products, the name of this brand affects positively in the mind of
consumer. They prefer Nestle jam to other brands.

1) BRAND MARK
        As Nestle is a company purely related to food industry and
it uses the symbol that includes three sparrows in nest.
2) TRADE MARK
     No other company will be able to use the name Nestle for himself
because Nestle has been registered as a trade mark.

     BRANDING STRATEGY OF NESTLE JAM
       Nestle brand name will present a message of caring which make it
distinctive and attractive than other companies. Delicious Jam's brand is good
food for good life. The message of family protection will be enough to get the
attraction of customer. The Nestlé's brand name is easy to understand &
translate. It is easy to pronounce and it is also easy to recognize. We will use the
same brand mark for our new product that is three sparrows in nests

PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE
PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE OF JAMS
        If we look at jams in product life cycle then it is easy to judge that they are
at maturity stage. Because jam market has become the pioneer market and at
this stage its profit is positive and sales do not decrease because jams companies
reinvent their products in terms of packaging, labeling, and vitamins and
continue to add values into their products to capture values from customers.
There exists high competition among jams companies so they need high
distribution and promotion expenses.




                                                                                    18
      PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE OF NESTLE JAM
       Nestle jam will start from the introduction stage. Nestle jam will be the
market pioneer and at this stage its profit will be negative or low due to low sale
and high distribution and promotion expenses. Other major reason to be at
introduction stage may be unawareness in rural and urban areas. The people will
not be aware of the nestle jam, that’s why their sale may be low. To increase
their sale they will continue to bring changes in product life cycle by effective




promotion and by formulating new price strategies etc. so it will have a long
maturity period.


PRICE
    In setting the price of product, the company will follow four steps
     procedure as given below
    Company will establish its objectives (Survival, max. supposed profit,
     revenue, sale growth etc)
    Company will determine the demand schedule which will show the
     probable quantity purchased per period at alternative price
    Company will estimate how their costs will vary at different output levels.
    Company will examine the competitor’s price

PRICING STRATEGY
1) MARKETING SKIMMING & PENETRATION PRICING
       This strategy is used in any company when it launched a new product.
And it offers a high price for new product to skim maximum earning more profit
and revenue and in this way company makes fewer but more profitable sales.
While other pricing is used by those company which is non branding and need to
increase market share, to capture value from customer, to attract customer
when they launched new product in market.

                                                                                 19
      In our case we will use penetration pricing strategy to
capture value from customer, to attract them and to increase our
share because there is a lot of brand present in market whose product of jam is
bought by people in large amount like national, Michal n Shezan and they
already have capture market share in large amount

2) BY PRODUCT
         We will use by product pricing strategy for nestle with the penetration. We
will offer kitkat to our customers in introduction phase, because we are more
focusing on children and in this way we can easily attract people for our nestle
jam.

PRICING OBJECTIVES
The objectives for pricing nestle jam are as follows:
    To achieve a target return
    To maximize profit
    Stabilize prices to meet competition
    Market share Leadership
    Product Quality Leadership

FACTORS AFFECTING THE PRICE OF NESTLE JAMS
       The following are the some factors that may affect the price of Nestle Jams
      Expensive technology
      Miserable condition of transportation and roads
      The unstable politicians, which can have positive and negative effect on
       the price
      The labor cost is low in Pakistan as compare to the others
      Advertisement cost
      Increase in taxes that may affect the price of product

PLACE
      As far as the distribution is concerned, NESTLE will make segmentation with
respect demographic and geographic basis. The distribution network needs to
be more extended; NESTLE will hire more potential distributors for the distribution
of NESTLE Delicious Jam in several parts of the country so that their product will
reach to every corner of the country.


                             RETAILING
       Retailers plays a very important role in the sale of nestle products. Nestle
does not directly its products to the end consumers.
Nestle has different retailers at different levels.

        RETAILERS CLASSIFIED BY MARKETING
                   STRATEGIES

                                                                                  20

  Directories            Sampling             TV shopping            Publication


       It means that NESTLE will advertise in print media like newspapers,
magazines e.g. Dawn, Nawa-e-Waqat, Jung and in some journals for
promotional purposes. It will advertise on electronic media & Broad cast media
e.g. TV, Radio which will be more attractive as compare to the advertisement of
competitor product and Nestle will also use billboards and printed ads for
retailers, moreover the company has got a website on which is Nestle will provide
special offers to the distributors.
        When they lunched new juice brand, they offer buy one pack and get
one free to distributors. Nestlé can use the same strategy for Nestle Delicious Jam.
They will offer free trial of the newly introducing jam to the general public.


PROMOTION MIX STRATEGY
 In consumer products the management of Nestle believes in pull strategy i.e.
 creating pull through advertising. So we will use the pull strategy to promote the
 sale of Nestle Delicious Jam through media.



               STRATEGIC PLANNING
BCG MATRIX FOR CURRENTLY PRODUCING
               SBU’S
STARS
       The two Sbu’s, Mineral water and Confectioneries fall into this category of
the BCG. These SBU’s have high market share and high industry growth rate.
These Sbu’s are requiring lots of investment to compete in the growing market.
For example, lots of money is being spent and aggressive marketing strategies
have been implemented for the Mineral water to build and maintain market
share.
       Nestle Pure Life has captured 50 % of the bottled-water market in Pakistan
since it was introduced in 1998. Its approximate sales for 1999 are RS. 70, 401000.
This sales figure is quite impressive as the sales rose quite high in only one year. It
is predicted that there will be additional growth in the mineral water category in
coming years. The sales of the confectioneries rose to RS. 106,559 000 from RS.
87,758 000.

                                                                                    22
      The huge increase of RS. 18, 801 000 puts this SBU in the stars
category and shows its increasing market share. There is a growing
market for the products in confectioneries for example Kitkat (eventhough it’s
imported), Polo Smarties etc. This can be proven from the fact that Nestle keeps
introducing new products in this category for example Allen’s Soothers were
launched during the last quarter of 1998.
CASHCOWS
        Milk products, Coffee and Dietetic and Infant food have a high market
share and are doing business in mature industries. Since the customers of this
product category are loyal, the marketing costs of these SBU’s is quite low and as
a result a large amount of cash can be generated. Customer Loyalty is a must for
these Cash cows to maintain their market share.
       The sales of the Milk products have increased to RS. 108,430000 from RS.
87,758000. This huge increase in sales reflects the high market share of this SBU.
However, its growth rate is low because in general this category is in its maturity
stage – that is – a number of milk products have been launched by Nestle, most
of which are quite old. An innovation has not really been made in this category.
The same conclusion can be made about Coffee. There is an already existing
market for Coffee which is not increasing further by a large amount.
       The sales of Coffee were Rs. 46,89 000 in 1999 and Rs. 392,00 000 in 1998.
This huge difference shows that a great amount of cash is being generated from
this SBU. Sales of Dietetic and Infant food rose to Rs. 60,935 000 from Rs. 52,655
000. The infant foods unit of Nestle is operating in a mature industry. Like the milk
products, the infant foods have been around for a long time without barely any
new product line being started in this category.


QUESTION MARKS
       Included in this section are the culinary products of the organization. The
products such as Maggi 2-minute Noodles and Maggi cold sauces have a low
market share and a high growth rate. These products especially the cold sauces
are operating in a highly competitive market. The approximate sales were Rs.
79,919 000 in 1999 and Rs. 60,818 000 in 1998. This figure represents a great
potential for growth in future. However, in contrast, the market share of the
products in this category is not very high currently.
       A reason for this is that Nestle just recently introduced cold sauces such as
“Emily sauce” etc. However the enthusiasm, with which the customers received
the different flavors of sauces, portrays a very high potential for future growth.
The firm needs to focus on differentiating its products in the competitive market
to gain customers.

DOGS
         Chocolate and Fruit drinks fall into this category and they possess a low
market share and a low growth rate. Chocolate drinks had sales of Rs. 19639000
in 1999, which rose from Rs. 19541000 in 1998. This is quite a small increase
considering the rise in the sales of other SBU’s. However, the chocolate drinks are
still profitable so the firm does not have to worry about liquidating or getting rid of
this SBU. The sales of Fruit drinks rose to Rs. 40,620 000 in 1999 from Rs. 38,103 000 in
                                                                                      23
1998. There has been a small amount of increase; however it is not
a lot compared to other SBU’s.
       Firstly, there is not a huge market for chocolate drinks in Pakistan. People
usually tend to buy light juices like apple or orange juice or Pepsi instead of
chocolate drinks. Secondly, regarding the fruit juices, there are not a lot of
flavors available currently in this category.
       Nestle needs to introduce new flavors such as apple, grape etc. to
capture the market that prefer these flavors. This will not only increase the sales
of the SBU, but it will also increase its market share. At the moment, additional
amount of money is not being invested in these SBU’s, as they are not very
profitable. Nestle is currently trying to maximize profits from this category by
minimizing expenditures and by differentiating the product to build market share.


        BOSTON CONSULTING GROUP (BCG)
          MATRIX FOR DELICIOUS JAM
       It will lay in question mark because it may be possible that many people
will not be aware of this newly made product which will show the low sale of this
product in starting. So it may have low growth in beginning period. Different
strategies will be made for the promotion of this product and the firm will focus
on differentiating its products in the competitive market to gain customers.
        The introduction of new variety in terms of features, packaging, labeling
and flavor may lead to the high future growth rate. In the start the market share
would be low and after penetration it will increase its share in market.


DEVELOPING STRATEGY FOR GROWTH AND
            DOWNSIZING
      From the matrix of Market Expansion Grid, for the company growth, the
strategy of diversification will be applied for the Nestle Jam because the
company is starting up with the product outside the company’s current products
and markets.



 SWOT ANALYSIS OF NESTLE JAM
STRENGTHS
    The only brand in the area maintaining its quality and taste and having the
     same impact on its customer
    Economical
    Delicious jam in market with many flavors
    Strong Brand Name

WEAKNESS
    Communication may be weak
    Lack of Awareness for the new product
                                                                                 24
OPPORTUNTIES
    Concentrating on distributing areas will increase sales
    Increase in product line by offering different flavors.

THREATS
    Sharing of segments by the competitors



   RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI)
    A Nestle Company can assess the return on investment in terms of
     standard marketing performance measures, such as brand awareness and
     sales or market shares of the Nestle Jam.
    Nestle Jam will use sales and share data to evaluate specific
     advertisement campaigns which will depict real-life scenarios of
     consumers using different flavored jams.
    Nestle will use customer-centered measures of marketing, such as
     customer acquisition, customer retention and customer lifetime value that
     will produce returns in the form of more profitable customer relationships.
    Moreover, the marketing investments could result in improved customer
     value and satisfaction, which, in turn, will increase customer attraction and
     retention. This will increase individual customer lifetime values and the
     company’s overall customer equity. Increased customer equity, in relation
     to the cost of the marketing investments, will determine the return on
     marketing investments.



       MARKET IMPLEMENTATION
       During the manufacturing of the product we would go for its advertising.
We would distribute broachers to create awareness. Then we would hire some
sign board in different major cities of Pakistan. And at the same time we would
go for TV and radio commercials. In all this process our main focus would be on
TV commercials and sign boards because now a day these are the most popular
things among the consumers.
