CHAPTER NO 1

INTRODUCTION
INDIAN HEALTH DRINK MARKET Indian health drinks market is still in its infancy due to the lack of awareness among the population. In value terms, the health food drink market is around Rs 1, 400 crore and in volume terms around 65,000 tonnes per annum. GlaxoSmithkline (GSK) with four brands - Horlicks, Boost, Viva and Maltova - is the leader in Indian health drink market. Complan, GluconD from Heinz India and Cadbury India's Bournvita are also popular among the Indian health drink brands. According to retail audit unit ORG Marg, GSK with four brands in the category Horlicks, Boost, Viva and Maltova - has a 70 per cent volume market share and Complan's share is 13 per cent. No doubt, Horlicks is the leading health drink brands in India since 1930, immediately after its launch in the country. Horlicks is sold in a number of countries across the world. In different countries, the product has different formulations in order to cater to varying consumer segments and serve different consumer needs. In India, the Horlicks available has been scientifically developed and specifically caters to the nutritional needs of the Indian diet. It helps meet the requirements of essential nutrients in children, such as iron and vitamins that aid iron absorption. Boost is health food drink (HFD), which is positioned on the energy platform in India. Developed by the Indian R&D team in 1974, and launched in 1975-76 in Kerala, Boost has been one of the fastest growing brands in the Indian GSK Consumer portfolio. Realising that the energy segment had a huge potential, GSK India launched the brand as the 'Vitaminised Energy Fuel' with a unique chocomalt taste. The brand was launched nationally in the early 80s and has always been targetted at 8-14 year old boys. This is the section of population most enthusiastic about sports, and also with high-energy needs, in India. A ccording to GSK sources, Viva is based on the belief that a good start to the day ensures that rest of it goes well too. New Viva is Vitahelth, combination of nine essential vitamins (vitamin A, C, D, B1, B2, B6, B12, Niacin and Folic acid), Iron, Phosphorus and Calcium. Viva contains a natural goodness of milk, wheat and malted barley. Maltova, a chocolate health food drink, was acquired from Jagjit Industries in Feb 2000. According to GSK official sources, to kids Maltova is the fun health drink, which is extreamly tasty and makes nourishment truly enjoyable and exciting. It was relaunched in June

2002 with an enriched formulation and improved packaging. The relaunched Maltova had active rechargers, a combination of essential vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates. Maltova has again been restaged in November 2004, with an attractive new packaging that connotes an extreamely high taste appeal and a sense of fun and excitement. American foods major H J Heinz's Indian arm Heinz India has a strong market presence with brands like Complan and Glucon-D. Complan contributes 40 per cent to Heinz's sales. Heinz's most profitable products are Complan and GluconD. Even Glucon D has shed its health tag and repositioned itself as a fun drink. In 2001, Heinz launched a slew of new products - coffee flavoured Complan. Complan is ideal for convalescents and the elderly - complete nutrition when you're off your food , pregnant and nursing mothers provides vitamins and minerals necessary for good health , busy people - a satisfying lunchtime snack at home or at work , athletes - who require fluid, carbohydrate and high quality protein without the bulk of solid food. In early 1990s Cadbury reentered the health drink market with Bournvita, the product of essential vitamins and minerals with memorable campaigns based on the 'Tan ki Shakti, Man ki Shakti'. The next big breakthrough happened in 1999 when the brand was re-launched with a new RDA Balanced Formula. The brand was relaunched with a completely new identity in 2001. Bournvita has a unique taste that combines the goodness of malt and chocolate. It gives the child physical and mental alertness resulting in a healthy body and an active mind. In 2001 Bournvita, complete with new packaging and design was re-launched. A loyalty programme, in the form of a Bournvita Nutrition Centre, dedicated to counseling mothers on her child's daily nutritional needs was opened. Cadbury Bournvita has been advertising since the 1970s. In the early years the positioning centred on 'Good upbringing' with Bournvita being an essential building block for children. In the 1980-82 years it was 'Goodness that grows with you'. By 1987, it had become the more aggressive 'Brought up right, Bournvita bright'. In the last decade of the 20th Century, competition between children was becoming intense and Bournvita was there with its 'Extra energy to stay ahead'. In the 1992-95 period 'Shakti har din ke champion ki' (Energy for the everyday champion) was its payoff line. In 2000, 'Bournvita poshan, sahi poshan' (Bournvita nutrition, right nutrition) encouraged consumption. In the following year 'Confidence kuch kar dikhane ka' (Confidence to achieve) became the reason to buy. The current Cadbury Bournvita positioning suggests that it contains specific ingredients that augment stamina and concentration in children

GROWING HEALTH DRINK MARKET IN INDIA With people turning more health conscious, the non-carbonated beverage segment has become one of the fastest growing and most exciting businesses at the moment. For some time now, manufacturers have experimented with some of the formulation and taste issues, offering the consumers better tasting, more healthful alternatives. Evolving from drinks containing a hint of herbs or vitamins, beverages have become an important delivery vehicle for efficacious amounts of nutritional ingredients. Beverages are unusual products in that everyone expects to try new varieties, even from established brands. While all segments of the beverage market are evolving, the growth seems to be directed more towards healthy, light and low-calorie drinks, in particular organic and fruit juice varieties. The Rs 500 crore non-carbonated beverage market in the country is composed of fruit drinks, nectar and juices. While the fruit drink segment is estimated at Rs 250300 crore (branded and packaged), the juice market is valued at Rs 150 crore and the nectar is a small category of about Rs 35-50 crore. And the popular brands vying for a share in the sector are Parle's Frooti, Godrej's Jumpin, Coca Cola's Maaza, Pepsi's Tropicana, and Dabur's Real, Nastle's Milo, Soy milk from ProSoya and branded fruit juices from Surya Foods among others. The Rs 1,100 crore health food drinks (HFD) market, classified into two categories of white and brown segments, has remained stagnant for the last several years despite GSKCH (GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare) and Cadbury's attempts to activate the category. While Cadbury's Bourvita has been at the forefront of the HFD market, GSKCH has also been active. Apart from repositioning its Horlicks brand from health drink to a fun drink, GSKCH more recently has launched its brown drink Boost in 100gm sachets as well in Tetrapak as a ready-to-drink product. GSKCH's Horlicks and other brands like Boost, Viva, Maltova, together have a 75 % share of the health food drinks market. Horlicks alone, as a white beverage, is believed to have an over 50 % market share. Nestle's Milo, however, being a brown drink faces direct competition from Cadbury's Bournvita and GSKCH's Boost. The market has marginally moved from the white malted beverages to the brown segment. The latest to join the race is GCMMF, which has relaunched its health food drink branded as Amul Shakti.

DABUR'S REAL FRUIT JUICE IN 9 FLAVOURS Dabur's flagship brand Real fruit juice is a market leader in the packaged fruit juice category. Real was launched in 1996 and the brand has carved out a niche for itself by claiming to be the only fruit juice in packaged form that is 100 % preservative free. Real with a market share of 55 % offers to its consumers the largest range of 9 juices that comprise orange, mango, pineapple, mixed fruit, grape, guava, tomato, litchi and cranberry.

Dabur Food produces around 50 million litres of juice annually through its state-ofthe-art facility at Birganj, Nepal. In August 2004, the company commissioned a multi fruit processing facility in Siliguri, in West Bengal, set up by Pasadensa Foods, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dabur Foods Ltd. Spread over 11 acres and geared to process 150 tonnes of fruit per day, it has the capacity to produce 192 tonnes of pulp/concentrate. The plant procures fruits worth Rs 6 crore from West Bengal, North-East, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. It has the highest capacity utilization by processing pineapple, litchi, guava, mango and grape round the year. GODREJ'S JUMPIN & SOYFIT IN SEVERAL FLAVOURS The Foods Division of Godrej Industries produces and markets fruit drinks, fruit nectar and Sofit Soymilk. The Jumpin range of fruit drinks come in flavours such as maqngo, apple, pineapple, litchi and orange. They are packaged in hygienic and aseptic Tetrapak that assures top quality. Ice-cold Jumpin can be enjoyed straight or mixed in a punch or a cocktail. They are available in packs of 200 ml. Godrej has launched Sofit Soymilk for the health conscious. Sofit Soymilk made from carefully selected soybeans, is a valuable source of proteins and vitamins. Being low in saturated fat and cholesterol free, is becoming a popular drink. Available in mango, apple, malt and plain flavours, Sofit is sold in Tetrapaks of 200 ml and 1000 ml. The 1000 ml pack is priced at Rs 50. Sofit is made by mixing soymilk with real fruit pulp, to give all the health benefits of soy to the consumers with the refreshing taste of fruits, claims the company. Soymilk is free of lactose which is present in cow/buffalo milk. The company is in the process of launching more health products. NESTLE'S MILO WITH 'BADAM SHAKTI' Nestle is relaunching its chocolate health food drink Milo by re-energising it with 'badam shakti'. According to company sources, Milo is all set to get a new lease of life with a new packaging, formulation and a distinct positioning. Currently, Milo is available in a SKU of 500gm priced at Rs 96. In the past, Nestle had exited from categories like packaged water business and discontinued a few of its brands, including Nescafe Choc Café and Milkmaid dessert mixes, due to their poor performance. By giving Milo a new distinct local positioning and introducing the brand in convenient sachets at lower price point, it is clearly moving away from being a very urban-focused player and targeting newer markets and driving rural demand.

PEPSI'S TROPICANA Pepsi's Tropicana brand fruit juice has registered double digit growth and has outpaced the growth of the packaged fruit juices market in India.

STAETA PROSOYA'S SOYMILK ProSoya Foods India, promoted by the Canada-based ProSoya Inc. has launched its low carbohydrate soymilk under the brand name Staeta in the major metros and selected cities in January 2004. The company has a manufacturing tie-up with Godrej Foods at the latter's Bhopal plant. The company is targeting a Rs 100-crore turnover in five years from the present Rs 4 crore. The Indian Soy food market is expected to grow at about 200 % as awareness about health is growing. COCA COLA'S MAAZA VERY POPULAR Maaza was launched in 1976, a drink that offered the same real taste of fruit juices and was available throughout the year. In 1993, Mazza was acquired by Coca Cola India. Mazza currently, dominates the fruit drinks industry. Over the years, Mazza has become synonymous with mango. The drink became a hit with successful advertisement campaigns like "Taaza mango, maaza mango,' and 'Botal mein aam, maaza hain naam.'Consumers regard maaza as wholesome, natural, fun drink which delivers the real experience of fruit.

introduce more varieties of flavoured bottled water over the next few months. BOOST Boost is a part of Indian Health Food Drinks (HFD). HFD is targeted at children aged 5–18. The market is huge since this is the age group that demands some kind of energy drink. The kids are active and playing during this age and the pressure is on the home maker to keep the energy level of the kids high using some drinks. Boost was innovative not only in the promotion front but also in product improvements. In 2002, as a part of its repositioning, the brand came out with Power Boosters: which contains Copper and Biotin. It was first of its kind in this segment. Boost also innovated in packaging. Over these years, the packaging became contemporary and stylish to reflect the changing consumer preferences. This was good enough to attract children. With competitors like Bournvita, Complan, Horlicks, this brand had to attract the children and provide them with a better, healthy, tasty, and nutritional energy drink.

MARKET STRUCTURE
The primary consumers of this industry are under 35 years of age and are predominantly male. Teenager and college students are core target market segments for the manufacturers and consist of the core age group of 12 to 30. A recent survey estimates that around 35% percent of energy& health drink consumers are above 35 years old. Furthermore energy& health drinks with high sugar levels are more popular among children and women, while energy & health drinks with strong taste and flavor are more preferred by male consumers. Recent studies also indicated that 65% of the energy drinks market consists of male consumers. There are several types of energy drinks products. Different varieties of tea and coffee along with green tea forms one group. Second are traditional energy drinks such as Red Bull and others. In emerging market like india, however, several producers have introduced new products.
