Also they are having a strong competition with local manufacturers.

Maggi is also facing competition with the chowmin.

Competitive Strategy To beat the competition: - NIL changed the formulation of Maggi noodles in 1997. However, this proved to be a mistake, as consumers did not like the taste of the new noodles. In March 1999, NIL reintroduced the old formulation of the noodles, after which the sales revived. NIL also introduced several other products like soups and cooking aids under the Maggi brand. In the early 2000s, Maggi was the leader in the branded instant noodles segment, and the company faced little serious competition in this segment. 11 [email_address] 14-December-2007

What measures were undertaken in sustaining the image of a popular brand (maggi noodles) and the reason behind the brand extension of the same?

Image of Brand Maggi To sustain the image of the brand maggi, Nestle had adopted the 360 degree marketing strategy: - Promote themselves as a health product. They promote the product with whom consumer’s can play with, according to their taste. They also give the opportunity, of posting the recipe, to the women.

Brand Extension In order to obtain cost economies, companies leverage the strength of the existing brand to launch new variants and product lines. Nestlé's Maggi is the classic example, which extended the brand Maggi to sauces, noodles, seasonings and pickle. They want to cash the image of the mother brand to make their new product’s successful and acceptable in the market. (e.g.-Nivea, Colgate etc.) Customer’s have a relationship and emotional feeling with brand maggi. 25 [email_address] 14-December-2007

Question-3 What strategies were adopted by NIL in repositioning Maggi noodles? 26 [email_address] 14-December-2007

What strategies were adopted by NIL in repositioning Maggi noodles?

Target Customer NIL was trying to create an entirely new food category, instant noodles, in India. Initially, the company targeted working women on the premise that Maggi noodles were fast to cook and hence offered convenience. ( Wrong Approach ) To get to the root of the problem, NIL conducted a research, which revealed that it was children who liked the taste of Maggi noodles and who were the largest consumers of the product. ( Correct Approach “Repositioning Strategy” ) 27 [email_address] 14-December-2007

New Positioning Strategy NIL shifted its focus from working women and targeted children and their mothers through its marketing. NIL's promotions positioned the noodles as a 'convenience product', for mothers and as a 'fun' product for children. NIL aggressively promoted Maggi noodles through several schemes like: - distributing free samples. giving gifts on the return of empty packs. NIL's advertising too played a great role in communicating the benefits of the product to target consumers. 28 [email_address] 14-December-2007
