Business Profile
Nestle is world largest food manufacturer with around 480 factories in 87
countries and a portfolio that range from baby food to pet care, from
chocolate to mineral water.
With more than 3,000 cups consumed every second. Nescafe is by far the
world's leading coffee brand
The coffee with life in it. Made in just 5 seconds. Thats how Nescafe
announced its entry into India, in 1963. Before the ad campaign hit billboards across the country, Indian coffee lovers were stuck with the idea that
coffee is something that takes minute attention to prepare and cannot be
instant.

northern, eastern and western. Of the four southern region is the area where
coffee is consumed the most. In this part hard (roasted) coffee is consumed in a
huge amount. In the northern parts NESCAFE instant coffee is consumed a lot.

Demographically NESCAFE has tried to reach or cover the every age group ,

Targeting
Target Audiences:

1. Working Adults (Primary)

2. Students-University, Academy, High School (Secondary)

Point of purchase
Nescafe products are mainly sold in the following points. Nescafe Classic
being the most commonly used Nescafe coffee line extension.

Kirana Store : The most common and the most widespread form of sales
point in India.

Modern Retail: Present mostly in cities are increasingly becoming the


most important points of purchase.

Visibility: Whether the product is at eye-level or not impacts the number


of SKUs sold.

Accessibility: Where the SKU stack is located in comparison to the


entrance of the mall matters as most of the SKUs sold today are impulsive
purchases, so if the SKU stack is located near the entrance and is visible,
it will impact the sales'.

Vending Machines: Nescafe has its own vending machines installed at


various locations namely College canteens, Offices, restaurants etc. This
is a very efficient form of OOH marketing too.

Positioning strategies

Positioning strategy based on Use or Application Lets understand this


with the help of an example like Nescafe Coffee for many years
positioned it self as a winter product and advertised mainly in winter
but the introduction of cold coffee has developed a positioning
strategy for the summer months also.
