 NIL promotions positioned the noodles as a convenient product for mothers as it takesonly 2 minutes to cook and it’s very easy to cook as well. All that it takes it to boil water and add Maggi noodles and masala in it which is provided in the packet itself. And it is positioned as fun for the children as they eat it with fork and sause and those noodles arevery enjoyable while eating. Hence the tagline “fast to cook, good to eat” best suits the promotional strategies. They promoted the product further distributing free sampleswhich helped mothers to try cooking once and realizing how convenient it is in cooking.And whether their children like it or not. And they actually found it amazing. NIL promotions gave gifts on return of the packets which by default attracted the peopletowards it. Hence it led to effective tagline communication for Maggi. NIL had to give the protection for this product as they saw the success of this product inthe market. Hence they opted to go for the copyrights. The word ‘noodles’ was registeredin the year 1984 by NIL. Hence Maggi became the trademark for the noodles category products from the year 1984. After this copyright the growth of Maggi product got anamazing bounce and in 1997 the growth of the product topped the market. It fell a bit in1999 and gained boomed in 2004.
SWOT Analysis
Market leader in the noodles category. Anytime anyone prefers Maggi as noodles.
It has a huge brand loyalty.
It has developed the huge distribution channel network over thousands of distributors, retailers etc. hence Maggi is available in every shop right from thesupermarket till food malls.
Innovative products for Indian taste buds such as Maggi, Maggi masala, chickenMaggi, tomato flavor which helped them grabbing more market as customer needs variety and they loved those flavors as well.
The advertising strategy for Maggi was a super hit as their tagline itself was veryeffective and grabbed the consumer’s mind.
The weakness of the product was it was earlier heavily dependent on only oneflavor which consumers get bored after a time and stops buying the product which hitsthe market sales of the product. It contains Maida, so there are some health related issuesfor this product such as constipation and it does not give sufficient required proteins andvitamins to children.
The greatest opportunity for the product Maggi is their 
Unexploited rural markets as so far they have mainly targeted cities anddeveloped areas.
 Number of youths working nowadays are increasing rapidly, so they can opennew branches and employ these people and increase production and their by salesand profits by targeting rural markets.
Increased affinity of Indians towards chinese cuisine creates new opportunity for Maggi to improve its taste further and capture large market share.
Presence of regional competitor’s e.g Top Raman, Ching’s noodles.
Price war strategies adopted by other brands like Top Raman.
STDP Analysis
It is based on lifestyle and habits of urban families depending on theiconsumption per week, type of flavor sold etc.
Kids, Office goers are their main targets as it is very easy to cook and less timeconsuming office goers prefer it. And kids love its taste.
Buyers, consumer mindset
With statements such as 2 min noodles, easy to cook and good to eat, they cratetheir own position in the market, and their tagline is the most effective way to get the positioning done.
Different taste for different flavors and attractive packaging has helped them todifferentiate their product from others.
