Tetra Pak in China Contd.


With the rapid development of Chinas soft drinks and dairy produce markets, Tetra Pak won many important clients from these two industries. Yili, Chinas biggest dairy producers, has to pay Tetra Pak 0.5 yuan for every cardboard package to contain the milk, which in turn is sold at 2.3 yuan. The cost of Tetra Paks package makes up about 40% of the price of the milk. Besides its Shanghai headquarters, Tetra Pak now has three jointventures and nine offices located in Beijing, Hong Kong, Xiamen, Harbin, Kunshan, and Foshan. Tetra Pak also has sales and marketing offices. Together, these offices make up a distribution network covering the whole of China.

TetraPaksCoreCompetencies
Tetra Pak always advocates the principle of growing with customers. Hence, it never stops perfecting the Partner Relationship Management (PRM), the very core of Tetra Paks customer value driven B2B solution.

PRM 1: Equipment Investment

For many growing small-scale dairy companies in China, it would mean heavy financial burden having to invest in the machinery for packaging milk. Tetra Pak worked out a program for equipment investment which enabled customers to install the Tetra Pak Fino equipment with only 20% payment required upfront. The remaining 80% of payment would be exempted as long as they order certain quantity of packaging materials annually in the next four years. Tetra Pak quickly expanded its market share and became the first choice for almost all dairy producers in China, keeping its competitors out of the Chinese market successfully. For old equipment replacement, Tetra Pak had another program known as old equipment-money conversion, which helped replace the old equipment at low costs, provided the companies continued buying packaging materials from Tetra Pak.

PRM 2: Market Information Sharing


Tetra Pak uses its world-wide information consulting system to realize business information sharing with its customers.
Besides, Tetra Pak edits the Tetra Pak News including market information, industry news, and relevant statistics, which is provided to customers for free.
