trace ingredients, packaging and production processesused in our factory strictly conform to local legislation, religious and cultural requirements.

History
Wall's is the brand name of Unilever's Heartbrand ice cream business, used originally in the United Kingdom and also currently (2006) in China, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.

When Thomas Wall took over the family meat and pie business in London in 1905, poor summer sales encouraged

him to think of other alternatives. Legend has it a young clerk suggested the idea of making ice cream in 1913, but the idea was shelved after World War I in 1918.

Macfisheries bought wall’s in 1920 – who then sold Wall’s to Lever Brothers in 1922. In 1922, Wall’s ice cream

started production. A love affair with ice cream had begun.

By the 1950s, wartime rationing produced a big appetite for ice cream – sales reached £46 million by 1959 and

Wall’s opened a large ice cream factory in Gloucester. Supermarkets began to stock ice creams in addition to small high street shops. Market research in the 1970s showed that practically everyone loved ice cream.

Today Wall’s divides its manufacturing in two parts: The In Home and Out of Home ranges. The In Home range consists of Wall’s famous family tubs and bricks and our Multipacks. The Out of Home range is a Wall’s success story and includes brands like Magnum, Cornetto and Feast. The kids range is specially formulated for little taste buds with favourites such as Rocket, Twister, Spin, and Moo.and shows an understanding of children’s nutritional needs, such as the Big Milk which contains 70% milk.

Ingredients

Ice cream is made from ice (water), milk, fat sugar and natural flavours and colours. All of these ingredients are necessary for you in your diet to lead an active lifestyle. From these ingredients you get protein that helps build body tissue, carbohydrates and fats which give you energy and essential vitamins and minerals like calcium that help to strengthen bones and teeth.

Ice cream is the only food you eat frozen and offers a unique sensory experience

The average number of licks to finish off a single ice pop is 50

Every year all around the world, Walls sells enough Magnum ice creams around the world four and a half times.

Launched in 1995 Cornetto is the number one selling hand-held cone in Pakistan today.

In 1993 Lever Brothers formulated a team to search for new business potential in Pakistan. The team concluded that there is a lot of potential in ice-cream market in Pakistan and Lever Brother should enter the ice-cream market without any hesitation and so they decided to launch WALL’S Ice cream in Pakistan. WALL’S is an SBU of Lever Brother--the biggest ice cream manufacturers in the world. and second to it is Nestle The WALL’S wanted to enter Pakistani Market through acquisition strategy; it wanted to acquire Polka to minimize the time it needed to capture the market. But initially Polka demanded very high price for their company. So WALL’S established an ice cream factory in Pakistan within eleven months which is a record time. And in February 1995, WALL’S launched with twelve products. After the launching of WALL’S it gave tremendous services and Polka loosed its market share by a huge extent. At this time Polka tried to sell itself to WALL’S but now WALL’S had done all the hard work which they initially did not want to do by acquiring Polka, so they were not ready to buy Polka. But Polka spread a rumor that Nestle is coming through Polka which obviously WALL’S did not want, so they purchased Polka in 1997. This acquisition made WALL’S an unchallenged market Leader and it also emerged as the “Impulse brand” with new level of excellence in takehome or desert ice cream.

WALL’S was launched firstly in Lahore in 1995 and later year in Karachi and Islamabad. In 1996, it was launched in Faisalabad and in 1997 it was launched in Multan, Quetta, Hyderabad, Peshawar and Sukhar as well. After the acquisition, Polka became a brand under WALL’S. The strong of Polka were continued and weaker were dropped.

The Heart was launched in 1997 to unite Unilever's ice cream businesses and brands, and has grown to become the most-recognized logo in the world of ice cream. In 2003, we announced the next step in building the world's most powerful ice cream brand, re-launching the Heart as symbol of the serious fun of ice cream.

Unilever is the world's biggest ice cream business and the home of one of the best-known symbols in ice cream, the Heart. WALL’S is an international brand of ice cream and is one of the most profitable units of Unilever. WALL’S has its 38 plants all over the world. And has a share of 22% of international ice cream market. In Pakistan it is 35-40% of total ice cream market (both organized and unorganized sectors combined).

Market Segmentation

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MARKET

Few of the characteristics upon which the market has been segmented are discussed below:

GEOGRAPHIC

WALL’S have segmented its market in four sections in Pakistan such as South, which is Karachi to Sadqabad and than Central from Sadqabad to Gujrawala and than North from Gujrawala to upside country.

DEMOGRAPHIC

Demographic variables of WALL’S target market are mostly age and income based. WALL’S have created many sorts of ice creams to cater all age groups. The most popular ice creams amongst kids are Paddle pop, in teenagers Cornetto and Magnum, commercial packs are popular in families as whole. WALL’S cater both females and males in the society. If we consider the income segmentation, WALL’S is targeting upper, middle, and lower middle income levels.

PSYCHOGRAPHIC

The psychographic segmenting is done on the basis of the taste and health conscious consumer. WALL’S targeted its market by creating an image of high quality and hygienic products. WALL’S was for “anyone, any where and at any time”, this very well explains psychographic characteristic of WALL’S consumer. Also relating fun and Shugal with ice cream helps depicting the life style of its potential user.

BEHAVIORAL

The behavioral segmentation is done on three different variables that tend to define a particular behavior or attitude of a consumer. These are:

• Occasions – regular occasions, special occasions

• Usage rate – thand hai to kya hua!!

• Benefits – quality, presentation, taste

TYPICAL BUYING PATTERN

WALL’S enjoys leading the market from the day it came in the business, by producing a high quality ice cream it has proved itself to be the best in the market. The nation have a tendency to follow others to the maximum extend. Pakistan is a nation with a tendency to get influenced by others and especially by western communities. We can categorize ice cream as fast food, which is a symbol of western community, so we can very well imagine ice cream gaining its popularity.

Consumers with high purchasing power are becoming heavy user of products available by WALL’S. Where else the consumers with very low purchasing power are light users. The density of user can also be categorized geographically. WALL’S is more popular in urban areas, as well as some of the rural areas. Although Pakistan is considered a hot climate country generally but it does have areas with low temperature so WALL’S is not that much consumed in those areas.

Ice cram is a kind of food, which is not age bounded or class bounded. But it is a fact that people of different ages and social classes may require different varieties of ice cream at different price levels. So for that purpose WALL’S has adopted a rifle approach and divided market into a number of segments according to different social classes and ages and then tried to provide ice cream solution for all to satisfy the consumer within his buying power.

The segmentation of WALL’S is:

• Impulse Item Segmentation

Sr. #

Segmentation on Income Classes

1

Upper class

2

Upper middle class

3

Lower middle class

Sr. #

Segmentation on Age

1

Adults

2

Teenagers

3

Kids

• Family Item Segmentation.

1

Upper class

2

Upper Middle class

3

Lower-Middle Class

WALL’S divided its items in to category of individual and family consumption. And the individual consumption is that of impulse products and usually fort an ice cream for family consumption one decides what flavor to buy, what quantity to buy and for how much to buy. On these bases WALL’S has divided the market of impulse items on the bases of income classes and demographics.

SEGMENTATION ON THE BASIS OF INCOME CLASSES:

1. UPPER CLASS

It includes the elite or higher income class who can afford even the most expensive items without much botheration. They consume icecream more on the basis of taste and preference rather than money.

2. UPPER-MIDDLE CLASS

This class includes people with moderate kind of income. You can neither put them in free hand category nor very less purchasing power category. These people normally take the taste and affordability both into consideration.

3. LOWER-MIDDLE CLASS

These are the people with very little income to spend. These people usually prefer the low price and economy than taste and preferences.

SEGMENTATION ON BASIS OF AGE:

1. ADULTS

Adults will mostly prefer the quality product which not only fulfill their taste and preference requirements but also reflects their personality. The adults are normally ready to pay for a product which fulfills their physical and psychological needs because they are the income generators.

2. TEENAGERS

Teenagers don’t have any specific taste and preferences. New products and new ideas always attract them. But they have a limited product and they have to maintain their expenditure with in that.

3. KIDS

Kids normally do not have a great know-how of the taste rather they are psychologically attracted towards the product. They are not concerned with the taste of ice cream and they just want ice cream. As they are dependent and cannot spend money themselves, so their parents mostly just provide them with an economical ice cream, not any specialized ice cream as it is not demanded.

FAMILY ITEM SEGMENTS

1. UPPERCLASS:

Rich people can afford anything not price conscious and just go for good quality

2. MIDDLECLASS

Mostly sticks to the traditional products and are price conscious and care for there taste and preferences to some extent.

3. LOW MIDDLE CLASS

Generally look for an ice cream which is low priced.

Distribution

One of the competitive advantages of WALL’S is its availability, which is ensured by extensive distribution. The distribution of ice cream is different from other products. To keep it in a good form it must be chilled at appropriate temperature. For this purpose deep freezers are used, which are provided by the company. However, the running costs are to be paid by the retailer. For this purpose walls gives a margin of 18% to its retailers\distributors, which is distributed over entire channel. Pakistan is divided in three major sections. These are as follows:

1) North

(Islamabad, Peshawar and Northern areas)

2) Central

(Lahore and Central Punjab)

3) South

(Sindh and Baluchistan)

DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL

Distribution channel consists of all the people and organizations, which are involved, in the physical distribution of goods. Selection of proper distribution channel is very important aspect because if the channel is managed efficiently. Companies can save high costs and thus generate profits. The cooperation of channel members is also of vital importance. Distribution is making the product available but this availability should ensure that product must be:

• At right place

• At right time

• In right condition

If there is any deficiency in any of these basic elements of distribution, the future of product would be uncertain. Distribution is such an activity, which could decide the fate of the product.

WALL’S has a Hybrid Distribution System. It reaches different customers through different systems. WALL’S is using two types of distribution channels, both are indirect channels.

PRODUCER

DISTRIBUTOR

RETAILER

CONSUMER

This is commonly used, in which the WALL’S factory send the products to the local distributors who supply the products to the retailer in the required quantity. The retailer then sells it to the customer. The specialty and effectiveness of this system is excellent.

The reason for such an excellent distribution system is the distribution policy. If a retailer wants to sell an ice cream, the investment he needs to do is as:

Security for Retailer the freezers

Investment on Board for advertisement Ice cream products

Total investment required

Others

15000

12-15,000

3000

30,000

WALL’S

Nil

12-15,000

Nil

15,000

That’s why most retailers are attracted to the WALL’S. Another important thing which needs to be discussed about the distribution is that during this distribution channel, the standard temperature of the cold chain is maintained.

PRODUCER

STOCK POINTER DEALER

RETAILER

(CYCLES)

CONSUMER

The second type of system was more a short term distribution system which has just for the introduction stage to actually made the product reach every where and the system was more of creating awareness than actual retailing purpose. But the cycle distribution system yielded excellent results in terms of sales and creating awareness about the products. Now the cycle contributes a big percentage of shares in the overall sale of the company. So this has now become a permanent distribution channel of WALL’S.

One of the major reasons of early success and clean sweep given by walls is its availability, which is ensured through extensive distribution. There is not even a single city in the country where one cannot find a walls freezer or hear the sweet music of the trike (tricycles), which acts as a direct marketing for it. Thus, WALL’S has always tried its best to ensure the availability of the product as close to the customers as possible and WALL’S has been very successful in that.

DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES

There are two main distribution strategies, which WALL’S has very effectively used.

1. In first strategy include incentives like free deep freezers, discounts on bulk purchases.

2. Advertising campaign that reminds and persuades customers to buy ice cream supports 2nd strategy, which is facilitated by price offs, which are frequently offered by the company.

PROMOTION
“Our aim is to spark the taste and feeling of summer in everyone’s day. Life is there to be enjoyed and we are the fun part of vitality. We constantly provide new products and experiences that excite the senses and inspire people of all ages to 'taste the fun side of life”--------Promotion Statement.

For any company to capture the market of its own wish and target, promotion plays the most important role in fulfilling the quest for market share. Although the process of promotion is very complex and can be looked in detail:

Ice Cream makes you happy – its official!

Wall’s carried out scientific research which shows that ice cream actually makes you happy. The study was carried out using FMRI brain scanners, and showed that eating Wall’s had an immediate effect on the part of the brain that is activated when someone is really enjoying themselves – the please areas.

So we now have scientific evidence to prove what we all already knew, that ice cream really does make you happy!

Promotional Strategies
Promotional strategies of WALL’s ice-cream is consistent. It uses Pull strategy for promoting its product because WALL’s spent a lot on advertising and consumer promotion to build up consumer demand.

Promotional Budget
One of the hardest marketing decisions facing a company is how much to spend on promotion. How des a company decide on its promotion budget:

WALL’s ice-cream uses Objective-and-Task Method to set its budget for promotional activities. This budgeting method entails (1) defining specific promotion objectives, (2) determining the tasks needed to achieve these objectives, and (3) estimating the cost of performing these tasks. The sum of these costs is the proposed promotion budget.

Wall’s determine its specific tasks to achieve its objectives which are defined by the company’s management, to achieve these objectives WALL’s estimates the costs of different tasks, which are to be done to promote its products.

1. Promotional Objectives

Promotional objectives of the WALL’s ice-cream are as follows

Inform

Persuade

Remind

Companies inform the people when they don’t know about the product, persuasion takes place when people already know about the product and company forces them to buy the product and when companies is selling enough quantities of a product it reminds consumers about the product to keep the sales at the same level in future.

Promotion is important for firms in many ways. It helps to establish image of product, which the manufacture wants to portray, and also the personality of product. It informs the people, creates awareness and helps in positioning and repositioning of the product. With promotional tools company can tell about the availability of product, company can justify prices or can communicate the features of the product. WALL’S is not promoting its products individually because WALL’S believe that the high quality it is providing through its products are more than sufficient to prove its identity. We believe that now there is a need for WALL’S to promote its products separately as international competition is coming as well.

2. Tasks

Selection of different promotional tools advertising and media schedules and what types of message are delivered to the target audience.

WALL’s uses Advertising and Sales Promotion.

3. Cost/Budget

Estimated budget of WALL’s of promotion is Rs.2.5 million (est.)

Promotional Tools 1. ADVERTISEMENT
WALL’S is creating awareness about its new products such as supper Cornetto, Carte DOR for this purpose it is using huge signboards on the major square of the cities and more importantly both the print and electronic media for advertisement and for that it is following AIDA model.

• Awareness

The WALL’S uses print and electronic media plus the signboards initially just to create awareness and knowledge about its new product as these days it is giving A lot of adds of both of its newly launched producs Super Cornetto.

• Interest:

As the public gets awareness of the produces of WALL’S the next step is to create interest among the target buyers about the product which is again done through advertisement.

• Desire:

The WALL’S create curiosity among the customers and transform that curiosity into the desire of the product.

• Action

Finally to make the customer purchase the product this is the final thing to be done in model. The WALL’S follows a sequential pattern through which it strengthens its newly launched products.

Or to put in another way, the concept can be very well understood with the help of the above given building blocks:

Inform

Persuade

Remind

Companies inform the people when they don’t know about the product, persuasion takes place when people already know about the product and company forces them to buy the product and when companies is selling enough quantities of a product it reminds consumers about the product to keep the sales at the same level in future.

Promotion is important for firms in many ways. It helps to establish image of product, which the manufacture wants to portray, and also the personality of product. It informs the people, creates awareness and helps in positioning and repositioning of the product. With promotional tools company can tell about the availability of product, company can justify prices or can communicate the features of the product. WALL’S is not promoting its products individually because WALL’S believe that the high quality it is providing through its products are more than sufficient to prove its identity. We believe that now there is a need for WALL’S to promote its products separately as international competition is coming as well.

The theme of advertisement varies with the product image and positioning. But walls follow the same theme internationally. The advertisements run on TV are made in foreign countries. The objectives of advertising are the three basic ones which include informing, persuading and reminding about different brands of walls.

WALL’S have used all sorts of mediums of mass communication and one to one bases. The mediums used in WALL’S promotional activities are:

• TV

• Billboards

• News papers

• Magazines

• Radio

• Banners

• Pamphlets

• Stands in shops

• Shop boards

WALL’S launches very low price products for the purpose of both market expansion and sales promotion. Like Solo for Rs.2 and Liter pack for Rs.45 was also to boost sales.

3- Discounts and Offerings:

Wall’s offered 5% discount in off-season.

3. Public Relations

For strengthening itself in relationship markets WALL’S is not only going for customer satisfaction but also stressing upon building strong public relations. For example, under the umbrella of Unilever, WALL’S has been trying to part in charity activities and also to stay in front in national and religion events. For instance events like Valentines Day. WALL’S uses such occasions to not only promote its sales but also to build strong public relationships through sponsoring events on this day. Moreover, it has recently started organizing colorful Fun Carnivals too, which is totally a family affair. This is just an instance WALL’S tries to gain maximum of such opportunities.

Walls Paddlepop sponsors Unilever International Art Project 2007
15/11/2007 : Paddle Pop – a Unilever brand - hosted the national awards ceremony of the Seventh Annual Unilever International Art Project for Schools today.

The ceremony marks the culmination of a two day exhibition in which art pieces created by children across Pakistan were showcased. Over 250 pieces were short listed from amongst the 150 schools that participated this year.

The ceremony was well attended by teachers, students and key stakeholders. Hameed Haroon, CEO Dawn Group was the chief guest at the ceremony.

The Unilever International Schools Art Project, first launched in 2001, encourages young people from around the world to create a painting, a sculpture or even a small installation on a given theme. Last year thousands of young artists from countries around the world including

Colombia, China, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Russia, Turkey, Zimbabwe, USA and the UK created works of art around the theme Reality & Dreams, inspired by Carsten Höller's TEST SITE, the seventh annual commission in The Unilever Series at the Tate Modern.

This is the seventh year that Unilever is undertaking this project which involves schools across Pakistan and encourages creativity and innovation amongst school children between the ages of 5 to eighteen. Paddle Pop, the iconic Wall's treat for young consumers, is the ideal co-partner for the Art project. The Paddle Pop brand encourages children to indulge in fun and adventurous activities and to express themselves through adventure and revel in the thrill they get from rising to the challenge.

In an effort to challenge the youth to think imaginatively about what motivates them and what they are passionate about, the theme for this year’s Art Project was - "Beauty & Difference – world’s apart". Artist, Doris Salcedo said; "I am very pleased that this year's theme for The Unilever International Schools Art Project, which will encourage children and students from many different parts of the world to engage with some of the most pressing issues of today".Centered on the theme, the artworks from Pakistan were diverse and detailed and clearly showed the time and effort put in by the students. During the course of the project Paddle Pop brand ambassadors visited the participating schools and offered a selection of flavours to the students.

Each category had four winners, First, Second, Third and Runners-up. This year the schools saw a difference in the annual Art Project process. In order to more fully involve the schools and elevate the project to a more interactive level, regional judging was conducted by the schools themselves. Mrs. Naiza Khan (Artist – VASL) and Marjorie Hussain (Art critic) conducted the final judging.

The three winning pieces will be sent and judged at the Tate Modern Art Gallery in London. The chosen piece will be exhibited at the museum.

Unilever Pakistan is committed to integrating business as a part of society, and the Company actively engages in initiatives that improve the quality of life, particularly of the lesser privileged members of our society. The main thrust in the Company’s social initiatives have been primarily in the areas of education, health care and water sustainability.

Message Execution Style
cornetto girl, where are you

The cornetto girl campaign has finally come to an end. Even though feel that its effects would continue to spread it is pretty safe now to bring to light whatever conspired in the campaign.

The message of this compaign is related to slice of life of teenagers.

As per the objectives we went about solving two key challenges.

• Enhance the connection between teenage infatuation and cornetto

• Break through the clutter without spending a fortune on media

The idea was to go ahead with a concept which would create talkability on its own and enhance the media ROI. The concept centered on a pseudo reality mystery based on the life the cornetto consumer.

“a guy sees a girl in his college for the first time eating a cornetto and instantly falls in love with her. The girl disappears a couple of days later before the guy has had a chance to make an impression on her. The guy, in desperation goes on to develop a whole ad campaign to track her down, bringing the whole country in on the search…”

This concept was then put on relevant media. From a 12 episode drama serial to creating hype on blogs and social networks to virally generated sms’s/emails we virtually exhausted all youth centric media. Even radio was used to insert ideas, theories, hoaxes about story through RJ chit chat. Seeded content generated to destabilize the theories in the drama helped keep the mystery alive through spoof videos.

Some of the ideas that never saw the light of day, was a specialized documentary, t-shirts and bumper stickers, sarmad appearing on begum nawazish ali’s show to clear out his position and sarmad’s car seen on the roads of the 3 metros with cool art work to help him find his cornetto girl. We even thought of having a PR leg to the campaign as well with articles in images and the magazine talking about the cornetto girl phenomenon.

All in all, this was a huge win for contact plus as we showed that well-established brands can come up with new ideas to reinvigorate their brand presence
