The days where cola beverages dominate the soft drink market may be over. Many young people would rather drink water. sports drinks. not as protecting flagship brands. . or tea than cola beverages.

PepsiCo.

ySTAGE ONE: GENERATING NEW-PRODUCT IDEAS The first step Pepsi Cola undertakes is to generate ideas for the new product. as they ultimately are the ones who you are trying to satisfy. .

They use input from their Sales team. and suppliers to help with new-product ideas. Their customers prove an extremely useful source of information and ideas. through this process. customers.

in order to determine the viability of further study of each respective idea. operational or legal risk.

meanwhile. TANGIBLE VALUES y HYGIENE VALUE-: y PepsiCo. y PepsiCo is to place more emphasis on producing products "backed by science" under its plans to create a nutrition business unit to develop new products in a series of food categories. . dairy and functional foods.PEPSICOS VALUES AND PHILOSOPHY y PepsiCo says-:Our Values & Philosophy are a reflection of the socially and environmentally responsible company we aspire to be. They are the foundation For every business decision we make. is to set a dedicated "nutrition unit" and is eyeing fruit and veg.

y As PepsiCo products are readily found in Supermarkets. . in any shop or confectionary or any retail store where there are grocery items kept.

Dew.

yECONOMIC VALUE-: y Indeed. . PepsiCo has also built leadership positions in RTD coffee and tea categories by building partnerships with Unilever and Starbucks. As part of its wider reach. PepsiCo is a true business conglomerate. rather than try to center its effort behind one brand. both alliances have kept it ahead of its chief rival in these parts of the cooler by building a horizontally integrated portfolio rather than one centered around just one or two top brands. When it came to energy drinks. comprised not just of beverage brands but companies like Frito-Lay and Quaker that play in snacks and breakfast foods. PepsiCo built a suite of products to build up share.

and therefore resulted in losses." . Pepsi has also made several losses in taking risks. Though lowering the price would attract customers. They're going to save the points up and send the points in and get terrific stuff. y The basic proposition is that (when consumers) go to where they purchase Pepsi products. with hip fashion. they have a choice between one soft drink or another. However.y Unfortunately. PepsiCo wasn t able to cover up the cost incurred in production. The beauty of the program is in its simplicity. It has universal appeal and a youthful edge. and has covered all its losses and is growing at a rapid rate. They are going to say `I want that Pepsi Stuff' and will purchase Pepsi instead of something else or purchase Pepsi more frequently. Consumers drink Pepsi and get Stuff. PepsiCo is now a full-fledged and growing company. The Stuff is high quality and current.

" . Get Stuff' . geographically and across consumer groups.. and the logo and designs are done with a hipness and subtleness that's terrific.y Pepsi's penetration is universal.. It provides value and excitement and interest every time you purchase . (It) has a particularly strong appeal . for youth. The merchandise is geared.. (It's) as good as anything you're going to find in a high-end retail outlet. I'd like to go back to Pepsi's heritage and say the designs are all `young-at-heart' and all 'contemporary... to be interesting and to appeal to everyone. The merchandise is designed to be as cool as anything out there. with a level of quality not seen in any (other) kind of promotion. both as to the items that we're offering and their design..'" y `Drink Pepsi.

The company however failed to maintain the trend and leverage it. this was also one of the longest campaigns carried out by Pepsi. Instead of moving on to a complete emotional appeal platform. the principal focus is on the product .

emotional level. . with changing times and a contextual difference in India.y 7 UP y In its early days. Hence the appeal was at a more subtle. which was targeted primarily at the youth and the teenager segment. The recent campaign of Bheja Fry essentially leverages on the same emotional appeal where the Keep It Cool campaign has been somewhat tweaked to have a local appeal. This led to the Keep It Cool campaign. a much more focused campaign was required. 7 UP inherited the global Fido-Dido campaign for promotion in India as well. which was meant to convey a potential lifestyle statement. However.

The initial campaign was unclear in terms of its appeal and the target segment. . However. the brand directly competes with Thums Up from the Coca Cola Stable. The campaigns launched include Do the Dew and Dar Ke Aagey Jeet Hai. as a result of which the brand suffered some jolts in the beginning.y Mountain Dew y Mountain Dew is the latest entrant in the product portfolio. In this sense. This product too has the appeal of being the drink of a daredevil or the No Fear personality. the latest campaign captures the No Fear or the Macho Man image.
