  3. 3. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Survey is an excellent tool for learning and exploration. No classroom routine can substitute which is possible while working in real situations. Application of theoretical knowledge to practical situations is the bonanzas of this survey. Without a proper combination of inspection and perspiration, it’s not easy to achieve anything. There is always a sense of gratitude, which we express to others for the help and the needy services they render during the different phases of our lives. I too would like to do it as I really wish to express my gratitude toward all those who have been helpful to me directly or indirectly during the development of this project. I would like to thank my Project Mentor Prof. Vasantha Laxami who was always there to help and guide me when I needed help. Their perceptive criticism kept me working to make this project more full proof. I am thankful to them for their encouraging and valuable support. Working under them was an extremely knowledgeable and enriching experience for me. I am very thankful to her for all the value addition and enhancement done to me. No words can adequately express my overriding debt of gratitude to my parents whose support helps me in all the way. Above all I shall thank my friends who constantly encouraged and blessed me so as to enable me to do this work successfully. Utkarsh Verma Marketing 1 (14-16)
  4. 4. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The project aims at understanding the consumer's commitment to repurchase and stay loyal to the product that keep consuming for long stretch of time. Research has demonstrated conclusively that it is far more costly to win a new customer than it is to maintain an existing one. And there is no better way to retain a customer than to exceed his expectations. For this purpose it is essential to know the level of customer satisfaction. The focus of my research was the measurement of Brand loyalty towards Nestle Maggi after the recent ban that it went through. There can be no better opportunity to interact with the external as well as the internal customers of an organization. Brand loyalty is more than simple repurchasing, however. Customers may repurchase a brand due to situational constraints, a lack of viable alternatives, or out of convenience. Such loyalty is referred to as "spurious loyalty". True brand loyalty exists when customers have a high relative attitude toward the brand which is then exhibited through repurchase behavior. This type of loyalty can be a great asset to the firm: customers are willing to pay higher prices, they may cost less to serve, and can bring new customers to the firm. For example, if Joe has brand loyalty to Company A he will purchase Company A's products even if Company B's are cheaper and/or of a higher quality. The Research findings focuses on understanding the buying behavior that consumer has towards maggi after the recent ban in which the Maggi samples were tested at Kolkata's referral laboratory and the test results showed that there are added monosodium glutamate and excess of lead. This lead to ban of maggi in several states of India. However, Maggi has been relaunched and various marketing measures are taken by Nestle to regain its old Image and gain the brand loyalty that it had earlier.

  6. 6. INTRODUCTION NIL introduced the Maggi brand to Indian consumers when it launched Maggi 2 Minute Noodles, an instant food product, in1982. At that time, Indian consumers were rather conservative in their food habits, preferring to eat traditional Indian dishes rather than canned or packaged food. In fact, NIL was trying to create an entirely new food category, instant noodles, in India. Initially, the company targeted working women on the premise that Maggi noodles were fast to cook and hence offered convenience. However, this approach failed as was evident from the fact that the sales of Maggi noodles were not picking up despite heavy media advertising. To get to the root of the problem, NIL conducted a research, which revealed that it was children who liked the taste of Maggi noodles and who were the largest consumers of the product. After this, NIL shifted its focus from working women and targeted children and their mothers through its marketing. NIL's promotions positioned the noodles as a 'convenience product', for mothers and as a 'fun' product for children. The noodles' tagline, 'Fast to Cook Good to Eat' was also in keeping with this positioning. NIL aggressively promoted Maggi noodles through several schemes like distributing free samples, giving gifts on the return of empty packs, etc. NIL's advertising too played a great role in communicating the benefits of the product to target consumers. Through its ads, NIL positioned Maggi as a 'fun' food for kids which mothers could prepare easily. Taglines like 'Mummy, bhookh lagi hai' (Mom, I'm hungry), 'Bas 2- Minute,' (Only 2 minutes) and 'Fast to Cook Good to Eat' effectively communicated the product's benefits to target consumers. These ads had become so popular that the tagline 'Bas 2-Minute' immediately reminded Indian consumers of Maggi noodles even several years after the ads were taken off the TV. Maggi's first product extension was Maggi instant soups launched in 1988. With the launch of Maggi soups, NIL had become a pioneer in the organized packaged soup market in India.

  11. 11. MAGGI – INDIA: Nestle India Limited is the market leader in Indian Noodle Market with it’s Maggi Brand of Noodles which was pioneer brand launched in 1983 in the packaged food market of India.

  12. 12. MAGGI NOODLES TIMELINE OF EVENTS 9 November 2015  Now that the orders of the Bombay High Court have been complied with, Nestlé India has made MAGGI Noodles available for sale once again 4 November 2015  All three NABL (National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories) accredited laboratories - mandated by the Bombay High Court – find samples of the newly manufactured MAGGI Noodles to be safe for consumption, with lead content well within permissible limits. 16 October 2015  Test results from all three laboratories mandated by the Bombay High Court show MAGGI Noodles to be safe, with lead content well within the permissible limits.  In compliance with the orders of the Bombay High Court, Nestlé India commences manufacturing MAGGI Noodles and submits the new batches for fresh tests to reconfirm they are safe for consumption. 13 August 2015  The Bombay High Court overturns the government's ban on MAGGI Noodles, arguing that the move was "arbitrary" and "that principles of natural justice were not followed."  The court rules that Nestlé India can bring the product back to the market if fresh tests – conducted in three accredited laboratories on the existing samples and subsequently on the freshly manufactured product– find the product safe. 11 August 2015  The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) files a class action lawsuit against Nestlé India on behalf of Indian consumers.  It asks for close to USD 100 million (INR Rs 639.95 crore) in damages on grounds of "unfair trade practices, sale of defective goods and sale of goods to the public by selling MAGGI Oats Noodles without product approval." 30 June 2015  The Bombay High Court allows Nestlé India to continue exporting MAGGI Noodles.
  13. 13. 11 June 2015  Nestlé India files a legal petition with the Bombay High Court, seeking a judicial review of this order. As the case progresses the company cites a number of arguments, including the following:  The FSSAI order was passed without giving Nestlé a proper hearing  The government laboratories that tested MAGGI Noodles for lead – on behalf of the FSSAI and some Indian state FDAs (food and drug administration) - were not accredited for lead testing.  Tests by Nestlé and an independent accredited laboratory have found MAGGI Noodles safe to eat  Tests by food standards authorities in six countries – USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore – also found Indian-made MAGGI Noodles safe for consumption.  MAGGI oats Noodles was launched when the FSSAI 'Product Approval' system was under suspension.  While legal proceedings are ongoing, Nestlé continues to comply with the FSSAI order and destroys over 35,000 tonnes of the product. 5 June 2015  In light of growing consumer confusion, Nestlé India decides to temporarily stop selling MAGGI Noodles in India until the situation with the authorities is resolved.  Later in the day, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) issues an order to Nestlé India which includes, among others, the:  Recall of all nine variants of MAGGI Noodles from the market  Halt of commercial activities related to the product, including sale and production  Removal of the "No Added MSG" claim from product packs  Withdrawal / recall of MAGGI oats Noodles as it did not have 'Product Approval' April 2015  The referral government laboratory in Kolkata says it has detected lead levels above permissible limits and the presence of MSG in its sample of MAGGI Noodles.  Ensuing tests on MAGGI Noodles samples - representing 165 million packets - by both Nestlé India's own accredited laboratories and independent accredited laboratories show lead levels to be within the limits set by the Indian food safety authorities.
  14. 14.  Nestlé India states that although it does not add MSG to MAGGI Noodles, the product contains glutamate from hydrolysed groundnut protein, onion powder and wheat flour, which can produce a positive result in a test for MSG.  Nestlé India says it will remove the "No added MSG" claim on the pack – although 'factually correct and not in violation of regulations'. January 2015  The second sample is received by the referral laboratory in January 2015.  It is analysed from January 2015 to April 2015 – significantly after the product's shelf-life. March 2014  Authorities in the State of Uttar Pradesh inform Nestlé India that MSG was detected in a sample of MAGGI Noodles that carried a "No added MSG" claim on the pack.  Nestlé India states it does not add MSG to MAGGI Noodles and requests a second sample to be sent to a referral government laboratory in Kolkata. MAGGI During the Ban: On June 5 this year, Nestle India's popular Maggi noodles went off the shelves after the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) imposed a ban, calling it “unsafe and hazardous” for consumption. The ban was imposed after several laboratories found the instant noodles contained huge quantities of taste enhancer monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead, way beyond the permissible limit. Maggi off the shelves: Stock worth nearly Rs 320 crore was recalled from across the country by Nestle India after it was banned by FSSAI. Destroying the stock: After the ban was imposed pan-India, Nestle India was ordered to not only take Maggi off the shelves, but to also destroy the stock, which included 30,000 tonnes-worth of instant noodles. Ambuja Cements was paid Rs 20 crore by Nestle India, to burn the entire stock at its cement plant in Chandrapur in Maharashtra. Fine: The Corporate Affairs Ministry imposed a nearly-Rs 640 crore fine on Nestle India, in lieu of finding MSG and lead beyond the permissible limit in Maggi noodles. The government filed a Rs 640-crore class action suit before the consumer forum National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC).
  15. 15. Out of this Rs 284.45 crore was sought in basic damages, and another Rs 355.5 crore in punitive damages. However, the government had said that the penalty could go higher as it was still calculating further damages to be sought. Market share/ share price Nestle India's nine variants of Maggi noodles accounts for nearly 70% of the instant noodles market, which took a massive hit when a blanket ban was imposed on the product. After the ban was imposed on June 5, the company's share price tanked. On June 8, three days after the pan-India ban was imposed, Nestle India's share price was down to Rs 5,539.8, the lowest level it had seen all year. Since then, the company's scrip has seen major volatility, regaining the highest level since the ban at Rs 6,831.95 per share on August 5. On the date, Goa deputy chief minister Francis D'Souza had said that he favoured the re-think on the Maggi ban after the latest tests conducted by a central government laboratory in Karnataka found the instant noodles safe for consumption. Madhuri Dixit tweets on Maggi Ban and so did many other celebrities and loyal Maggie customers-
  16. 16. However,The ban was set aside, Nestle India has started production at three of the eight factories, and wants to start production at all the factories soon. "We have resumed manufacturing of Maggi Noodles at three of our plants, at Nanjangud (Karnataka), Moga (Punjab) and Bicholim (Goa)," said a Nestle India Spokesperson. Jobs Nestle India employs nearly 7,200 prople in India, across its eight plants. However, according to this NDTV report, Nestle India had assured that it will not be cutting any jobs despite the production halt of one of its biggest brands. The report said that employees and factory workers were reassigned to other job roles during the ban. However, according to this Indian Express report, the company's Moga plant that employed 1,000 contract workers apart from the regular staff, had only about 200 people during the ban. The job losses weren't limited to Nestle India. The contagion effect was felt throughout the value chain, the IE report says. The Maggi ban's effect percolated to the company's suppliers, spice manufacturers and providers, maida suppliers, loaders and truckers, and so on. Advertising With the ban now kept aside and Maggi cleared for production, Nestle India is gearing to relaunch the instant noodles. For this, the company has said that it will be advertising aggressively, increased its spending on tv commericals.
  17. 17. During the ban, Nestle India had come up with a series of advertisements to the theme #WeMissYoutoo Currently Maggi is advertising the theme #NothinglikeMaggi to gain the lost customer and create the popularity of its main product MAGGI noodles #Maggilicious2016 was done during the new year time and it helped nestle gain its old customers and create a positive image in the market. Apart from this many heart touching commercial ad has come up which shows a strong influence and comeback of maggi and also to gain the past Image the company is adopting various measures to get back the Image that it once had.
  18. 18. Brand loyalty Brand loyalty, in marketing, consists of a consumer's commitment to repurchase or otherwise continue using the brand and can be demonstrated by repeated buying of a product or service or other positive behaviors such as word of mouth advocacy. Brand loyalty is more than simple repurchasing, however. Customers may repurchase a brand due to situational constraints, a lack of viable alternatives, or out of convenience. Such loyalty is referred to as "spurious loyalty". True brand loyalty exists when customers have a high relative attitude toward the brand which is then exhibited through repurchase behavior. This type of loyalty can be a great asset to the firm: customers are willing to pay higher prices, they may cost less to serve, and can bring new customers to the firm. For example, if Joe has brand loyalty to Company A he will purchase Company A's products even if Company B's are cheaper and/or of a higher quality. An example of a major brand loyalty program that extended for several years and spread worldwide is Pepsi Stuff. Perhaps the most significant contemporary example of brand loyalty is the dedication that many Mac users show to the Apple company and its products. From the point of view of many marketers, loyalty to the brand - in terms of consumer usage - is a key factor: Loyalty A second dimension, however, is whether the customer is committed to the brand. Philip Kotler, again, defines four patterns of behaviour: 1. Hardcore Loyals - who buy the brand all the time. 2. Softcore Loyals - loyal to two or three brands. 3. Shifting Loyalty - moving from one brand to another. 4. Switchers - with no loyalty (possibly 'deal-prone', constantly looking for bargains or 'vanity prone', looking for something different). METHODS TO FIND BRAND LOYALTY: COLOMBO MORRISON MODEL: Colombo and Morrison distinguished buyers in to two groups. Hard-core loyals, who buy the same brand with absolute certainty at every single purchase occasion. Potential switchers, who choose at every purchase occasionally one of the brands according to a certain probability distribution. Therefore, the two important parameters of the model reflect a brand’s reliance on highly loyal customers and its success in attracting brand switchers. The first groups are those who have a positive attitude toward the brand (prefer it) and who buy it. The second groups are those who buy it on a given purchase but who may prefer another brand. An assumption of the model is that every consumer has a preferred brand. If these consumers have a preference, why are they “switching?”
  19. 19. Although all consumers have a preferred brand, some preferences are stronger than others. Weak preferences characterize potential switchers. Potential switchers may be variety seekers; or, they may be responding to sales promotions or other situational factors. By considering the relative preferences and purchases, the model computes an ability of each brand to attract consumers from each other brand. Share Tier Model: This model takes into account two parameters Price & Quality. This model takes in to account two parameters Price & Quality. It tests the belief and checks whether the beliefs are getting translated into Behaviour, i.e. actual purchase. It also helps to find out the price level of price sensitivity that a particular brand has. This model also helps in gauging the resilience and leveragability of the brand. Rational for choosing Colombo Morrison Model: The category noodles we have chosen falls under low level of involvement that means people’s chance of trying other brand is high. Analyzing Colombo Morrison Model gives the reasons why people choose other brand over preferred brand. This model helps to find out the problems existing in the brand. PRICE PREMIA: It is the ability of the brand to charge the premium METHODS TO FIND PRICE PREMIUM: Brand Price Trade off Method: BPTO is one of the simplest to find relative value of the brand compared to competitors. In this method different brands are shown to customers and they are asked to choose their preferred brand at the same comparable price level. Then prices of the products are revised and then the customers are asked to choose from the adjusted price level. The ranking of the preferred can be inferred in relation to the prices customers can pay or willing to pay. Van Westerndrops Price Sensitivity Meter:: The method was developed in the 1970s by Dutch economist Peter H. Van Westendorp. The Price Sensitivity Meter (PSM) is a market technique for determining consumer price preferences. The traditional PSM approach asks four price-related questions, which are then evaluated as a series of four cumulative distributions.  At what price would you consider the product to be so expensive that you would not consider buying it? (Too expensive)  At what price would you consider the product to be priced so low that you would feel the quality couldn’t be very good? (Too cheap)  At what price would you consider the product starting to get expensive, so that it is not out of the question, but you would have to give some thought to buying it? (Expensive/High Side)  At what price would you consider the product to be a bargain—a great buy for the money? (Cheap/Good Value) Changes Made to Van westendorps price sensitivity Meter: As per the method the questionnaire should be open ended. Open ended questions in this method works well when the level of involvement for the product is high. Since, the category we have
  20. 20. chosen fall under low level of involvement, Closed end questionnaire gives better results. Rational for choosing Van westendorps price sensitivity Meter: This method gives clear about how consumers perception about a product changes with the change in price of the product. Rational for not choosing Brand Price Trade-off Method: This method gives relative value of a brand compared to its competitors. Since, Maggi has a market share of around 90% and the rest of the brands sharing 10% market share, adopting this method makes results skewed towards Maggi. In order get better results using this method we have take more sample size for competitors. DISTRIBUTION: The main advantage of Maggi over other brands is early mover advantage & distribution network. Only few noodles brands like Maggi, Yuppie & Knorr has good distribution network. But Yuppie & Knorr are still in the early growth stage. Wai-Wai is present only in Eastern region & Top Ramen has entered tie-up with Marico to tap other markets. Clearly Maggi has the advantage over other brands in terms of availability. PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE: Product life cycle is a tool that provides a way to trace the stages of product’s acceptance from introduction to decline. The market share of Maggi noodles is around 90%. The present market size of instant noodles is Rs 1300 crore and is expected to grow around Rs 3000 – 3500 crore by 2015. But, increased competition from Sunfeast Yuppie, HUL’s Knorr & other brands make hard for Maggi to increase its market share.
  21. 21. PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE (MAGGI NOODLES) What is the brand name that comes to your mind when we talk about noodles? Most of us would say Maggi. Maggi is a brand of instant noodles, ketchup, sauces etc that originally came into existence in the year 1872 in Switzerland and was founded by Nestle. This brand is extremely popular in Australia, New Zealand, India and many other places. INTRODUCTORY STAGE: Nestle launched Maggi in India in the year 1982 with it’s 2 minutes instant noodles. When Nestle launched this product there were a lot of ups and downs, with high failure rates. Maggi, then had no competition and incurred high production cost. A lot of research was also done in this stage which caused frequent modifications. Growth Stage: Around 1985, the demand for Maggi had increased tremendously in India. The entire development cost was recovered and moreover it’s sale rates had also increased. In 1990 the demand for Maggi had dropped a little because of an introduction of a new brand named Top Ramen. So in order to increase it’s sales Nestle formulated a new flavour which wasn’t well accepted by it’s consumers. Thus in 1999, Nestle re-launched the old flavour of Maggi, which in turn increased it’s sales. Maturity Stage:  During it’s maturity stage, Maggi’s sales were at peak,  production costs were low  Declining sales growth.  Saturated market.  Extending product line.  Large promotional offers.  Entrance of new players - During the period of 90’s MAGGI faces the tough competition from TOP RAMEN.
  22. 22.  PRODUCT: MAGGI introduced wide variety of products like Dal atta noodles, chicken maggi, maggi cuppa mania.  PRICE: Maggi still comes in very affordable prices starting from Rs. 5,they reduced the quantity instead of increasing price.  DISTRIBUTION: Distribution become more intensive. Various intensive programs for encouraging products over other competitors. Declining Stage: As we all know that Maggi is now banned in India due to it’s high lead content. Thus it is going through it’s declining stage now. Nestle is conducting a lot of research and if they come up with something new and better, then Maggi might be selling it’s products in the future, or else after the declining stage, this brand would become history in India. To overcome its declining stage, Nestle has come up with one of the largest recalls in the history of Nestlé, and in the rest of the food industry. Recalling 27,420 tonnes of MAGGI Noodles. Around 400 million packets of MAGGI Noodles are being destroyed.
  23. 23. Pricing and Product Development It was at this point in time that Nestlé decided to change the formulation of Maggi noodles. The purpose was not only to infuse 'fresh life' into the brand, but also to save money through this new formulation. The company used new noodle-processing technology, so that it could air-dry instead of oil-fry the noodles. The tastemaker's manufacturing process was also altered. As a result of the above initiatives, costs reportedly came down by 12-14%. To cook the new product, consumers had to add two cups of water instead of one-and-a-half cups. The taste of the noodles was significantly different from what it used to be. The customer backlash that followed the launch of the new noodles took Nestlé by surprise. With volumes declining and customer complaints increasing, the company began to work on plans to relaunch 'old Maggi' to win back customers. In addition, in 1998, Nestlé began working out a strategy to regain Maggi's position in the soup segment. To counter the Knorr threat, the company relaunched Maggi soups under the 'Maggi Rich' brand in May 1998. The soups were not only thicker in consistency than those produced earlier, the pricing was also kept competitive and the packaging was made much more attractive. However, Knorr took Nestlé by surprise by launching one-serving soup sachets priced as low as Rs 4. HLL too launched two-serving sachets of Kissan soup priced at Rs 7. As Maggi did not have any offerings in this price-range, it lost a huge portion of its market share to Knorr. The relaunch prompted market observers to compare Nestlé's move with US soft drinks major Coca-Cola's 'New Coke' fiasco. However, the company disagreed, "It's a hard-5 nosed strategy, that mixes nostalgia with the consumer's voiced preference for the product it has been bred and rought up on. The reintroduction is Nestlé's acknowledgement of the loyalty of the Indian mother and the child to the original product." By May 1999, Nestlé's decision to bring back the 'old Maggi' seemed to have paid off. Two months after the relaunch, the monthly average sales of Maggi noodles n the northern region rose 50% in comparison to the previous year. In July 1999, 'Maggi' the brand, was promoted as the biggest brand in Nestlé's portfolio of brands in India, overtaking brands such as Nestum and Cerelac. Nestlé believed that Maggi had immense potential as it was a very 'flexible' brand under which regional variants could be introduced to meet various market needs. Company sources claimed that with reasonable price points and innovative products, Maggi could emerge as a top brand and a major growth driver for the company. To further support the brand, Nestlé carried out various promotional activities as well. These included the August 1999 'Fun-Dooz' campaign and Jungle Jackpot campaigns. 6 As a result of the above initiatives, Nestlé claimed to have cornered an 81% market share of the 20,000 tonnes noodles market by the end of 1999. Nestlé sources claimed that Maggi noodles outsold the competition four times over and that more than four Maggi noodle cakes were consumed every second in the country.
  24. 24. STPD ANALYSIS OF MAGGI BRAND Segmentation: Market Segmentation divides the heterogenous market into homogenous groups of customers who share a similar set of needs/wants and could be satisfied by specific products. Maggi Brand have segmented the market on the basis of lifestyle and habits of URBAN FAMILIES. Target: Market Targeting refers to evaluating and deciding from amongst the various alternatives, which segment can be satisfied best by the company. The Maggi Brand have mainly targeted the Kids, Youth, Office Goers & Working Woman which falls into the category of "convenience-savvy time misers" who would like to get something instant and be over with it quickly. Positioning: Market Positioning is the act of designing the company's offerings and image to occupy a distinctive place in the minds of the target market. The goal of positioning is to locate the brand in the minds of consumers to maximise the potential benefit to the firm. Maggi has positioned itself in the SNACKS category and not in the meal category since Indians do not consider noodles as a proper food item. Therefore Maggi have developed its brand image of instant food products with positioning statements such as "2 minutes noodles" and "Easy to cook, good to eat". Differentiations: Points-of-difference (PODs) are attributes or benefits consumers strongly associate with a brand, positively evaluate and believe they could not find to the same extent with a competitive brand. The Maggi Brand have also differentiated its brand image from its competitors in terms of taste, flavours and packaging. Maggi have launched wide varieties of products in different flavours which can attract larger set of customers. Maggi products are also available in different sizes catering to different customer needs.
  25. 25. SWOT ANALYSIS Strength:  Established Family Brand  Strong Global Corporate Brand ( NIL )  Specialization in food processing category marketing and distribution in Urban market  Presence of other product segments of food category : Dairy Products, Chocolate,Infant foods  Pioneer and Leader so 1st mover advantage in Noodles, Sauce, Ketchups and Soupmarket.  Nestle symbolization of warm, family & shelter.Research and Development Division in India  New Noodles Plant in Uttarnchal Weakness:  Generic Brand to Noodles in India  Low rural market presence constraints  Uniform Brand for all food category  Brand Proliferation Opportunities:  Growing package and canned food market in India by 15% annually.  High brand awareness of Indian consumer  Other product category like Biscuits, Chips and Ready to Eat Market still unexplored.  Opportunity to be substitute to other snacks category of food products. Threats:  Competitors with long history in product category Internationally like, HeinzSauce and ketchups of Heinz Indian, Top Ramen in Noodle and Knorr Soups.  Single product focused competitors like Heinz sauce and Wai Wai Noodles.Less Entry Barriers in the Market segment for product category  ITC has strong base in Indian Market.  Substitute Product to Product Segment.
  26. 26. Consumer Decision Making Process: Maggi Consumer Decision Making Process, this basic psychological process plays an important role in understanding how consumers actually make their buying decision. Marketers must understand every facet of consumer behaviour in terms of “who, what, when, where, how and why”. Smart companies like MAGGI try to fully understand the consumer’s buying decision process – all their experiences in learning, choosing and using of the product. Maggi has always considered the following steps: Problem Recognition This is the first stage of the Buying Decision where the buyer recognizes a problem or need. The need can be triggered by internal or external stimuli which a marketer must identify by gathering information from number of consumers. They can then develop marketing strategies that trigger consumer interest. Nestle after carefully analysing the market, identified the need for a quick snack in India. They adopted the first mover strategy and launched Maggi in India in the year 1982 as an instant fast food. Thereafter, Nestle recognized the consumer’s need for Maggi in different sizes and introduced the 50gms, Double Pack and Super Saver Pack (s). Later on in the years 2005 and then 2006, consumer’s need for a healthy instant food was catered by launching Maggi Atta Noodles and Maggi Dal Noodles. These again emerged as successful products and were widely accepted by masses. Further to suffice the need for different taste, Maggi Rice Mania was brought in the market in Shahi Pulao, Chilli Chao and Lemon Masala flavors. Information Search An aroused customer will be inclined to search for more information. At this level, a person simply becomes more receptive to information about a product. There are four major information sources which are of key interest to the marketer. These are the personal sources (family, friends, and acquaintances), commercial sources (advertising, websites, packaging and displays), public sources (mass media, consumer rating organizations) and experiential sources (handling, examining and using the product). MAGGI has over the years well established itself in the market and has now become a household name. This has helped the brand gain popularity through word of mouth.
  27. 27. Maggi’s Mass Advertising Campaigns targeted consumers of all ages. Their advertisements have highlighted that Maggi is a good alternative available with the consumers when it comes to having a quick snack. Evaluation of Alternative Once all the consumers gather all the information he then evaluates the various option available to him. When evaluating the potential alternatives, consumer uses two types of information the first is the “list” of brands from which they plan to make their selection and the second is the criteria from which they plan to make their decision. Beliefs and Attitude: Evaluations often reflects beliefs and attitudes. And these are acquired by experiences and learnings. MAGGI has always provided its consumers with something new from time to time which has developed a good belief in the brand and thus has helped them to choose them from their other alternatives. Their competitors like top ramen always find it difficult on the evaluation front with magi because of strong association of consumers with it. Awareness set is  Maggi  Tom Ramen
  28. 28.  Wai Wai  Cup of Noodles  Chings So out of the above awareness set the consumers decides to choose Maggi because after analyzing the different parameters of the brand Maggi was chosen as the best alternative among the rest leading to its maximum market share. Purchase Decision In the evaluation stage the consumer forms preferences among the brands in the choice set, the consumer may also form an intention to buy the most preferred brand .In executing a preferred intention the consumer takes up five sub decisions  Brand  Dealer  Quantity  Timing  Payment Method In some cases consumer may decide not to formerly evaluate each and every brand; in other cases intervening factors may affect the final decision. Because of the strong consumer awareness about the brand MAGGI, consumer generally prefer Maggi out of all the available brands , due to the mass distribution strategy adopted by Maggi, any consumer can easily purchase it from their local grocery store without wasting much of his/her time in searching for the product , Maggi comes in various sizes like single , double and the supersaver packs so depending upon each individuals need Maggi is catering each and every segment of the society not to mention that as the size increase the saving on each pack increases. Post Purchase After the purchase the consumer might experience dissonance that stems from noticing certain disquieting features or hearing favorable things about other brands and will be alert to information that supports his/her decision. Marketer must monitor
  29. 29.  Post Purchase Satisfaction  Post Purchase Action  Post Purchase Product Uses Post Purchase Satisfaction Satisfaction is a function of the closeness between expectations and the product’s perceived performance, if performance falls short of expectations the consumer is disappointed and if it meets the expectation the consumer is satisfied and if it exceeds the expectations then the consumer is delighted. Post Purchase Actions Satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the product will influence subsequent behavior if the consumer is satisfied he will exhibit a higher probability of purchasing the product again. The satisfied customer will also tends to say good things about the brand to others, marketers says “our best advertisement is the satisfied customer”. Post Purchase Use Marketer should also monitor how buyers use and dispose of the product. A key driver of sales frequency is product consumption rate – the more quickly buyers consume a product the sooner they may be back in the market to repurchase it. Maggi managed to cater efficiently to the Indian market,since Indians are very conservative and concerned as to where the spend their money,Nestle adopted the marketing and promotional strategies which best suited the Indian Market.

  31. 31. LIMITATION OF THE REPORT Every attempt will be taken to obtain the error free and meaningful result but as nothing in this world is 100% perfect I believe that there will still the chance for error on account of following limitations- (1) Respondent’s unavailability. (2) Time pressure and fatigue on the part of respondents and interviewer. (3) Courtesy bias. (4) The project undertaken needs a lot of secondary data so the availability and precision of this data forms the major limitation as the biasness has to be minimized. (5) The results and conclusions of the project cannot be generalized in all area of an organization. (6) There was a shortage of time and resources for the functioning the operation. (7) The data in this study is maximum taken from the primary sources .so, these data is not fully exact. (8) There was a hurdle in the collection of data from primary sources i.e. risky as well as incomplete.
  32. 32. Research Analysis Part A Brand Loyalty Index: BLI is a competitive benchmarking tool that identifies the strength of a brand. It is broadly classified into two types. INTERNAL FACTORS: Internal factors are broadly classified in to four types. We are relying on the secondary data for measuring these four factors, because consumers are not aware/concerned about the internal factors of a brand & Internal factors are maintained in secrecy by a company.The four factors are: 1. CLARITY: Its about what the brand stands for in terms of its values, positioning proposition, audiences, customer insights & drivers. We assign Maggi a score of 9 in this aspect because without these values articulated internally and shared in the organization it is not possible for a brand to be the leader in the category consequentially over the years. 2. COMMITMENT: It is the extent to which the brand receives the support in terms of time, influence & Investment. We assign Maggi a score of 10 in this aspect the reasons are Brand extension for other category of products that shows company’s interest in the brand. Brand Campaign’s such as “2 Min mein khushiyan movement” & other advertisements shows company’s time & Investment in the brand. 3. PROTECTION: It is how secured brand in dimensions such as legal protection, propriety ingredients, scale or geographical spread. We assign Maggi a score of 8 in this aspect. The reason is that The category itself doesn’t have legal protection because the products across the brand are easily replicable.When it comes to scale & geographical spread Maggi has early mover advantage and a strong distribution channel and presence of over 4.1 million outlets. 4. RESPONSIVENESS: It is the ability of the brand to respond to market changes, challenges & opportunities. The brand should have a sense of leadership internally & a desire and ability to constantly evolve & renew itself. We assign Maggi a score of 9 in this aspect. The reason are Introduced new products like Maggi Atta noodles, Veg multigrain noodles in response to the competition.
  33. 33. EXTERNAL FACTORS: It is mainly dependent on how consumers perceive the brand. The ratings for the external factors are calculated based on our questionnaire. 1. Gender Male Female 2. Age Group O Under 18 O 18 – 24 O 25 and above Loyalty: The following questions were asked to understand the customer loyalty towards the brand or the product. We assign maggi 9 on terms of loyalty based on the responses of the survey.

Consumtion Behaviour: 40% of the sample consumed Maggi Noodles at least once a week, 29% of sample consumed twice a week, the remaining were less than 10% who consumed it more than thrice a week. 10% of the sample was found to consume less than a week, when questioned some of them denied the consumption totally and the remaining said to have less frequently may be once or twice a month. The youth are heavily addicted to Maggi Noodles but due to the recent ban there has been a diminishing change in the consumption pattern of maggi noodles. DIFFERENCIATION: This component measures how distinct the brand is from the competition. Differentiation is the one that helps the brand to charge premium.

  35. 35. 56% of the sample consumed Noodles even after it was banned this shows the level of addiction towards noodles, while the remaining 44% did not consume as a few respondents said it was not available in the market and they missed maggi more than any other noodles in the market. This shows that there was a demand for maggi noodles even after the availability of substitutes in the market.

  41. 41. CONCLUSION Nestle will have to work hard to build up the faith among the people that it once used to had though Nestlé India has conducted over 3,500 tests, representing over 200 million packs, in both national as well as international accredited laboratories and all reports are clear. In addition to these, various countries including USA, UK, Singapore, Australia and others have found Maggi noodles manufactured in India safe for consumption. In India Nestle were asked by the regulator to recall the product and they stopped selling it. In fact, before the order was issued, Nestlé India had announced it had stopped selling MAGGI Noodles. This is because concerns about the product led to confusion for the consumer to such an extent that Nestlé India felt it was necessary to take the product out of the market while we engage closely with the regulators and others to discuss the situation. They Further have received test results from all three laboratories mandated by the Hon’ble Bombay High Court to test MAGGI Noodles samples. All the 90 samples, covering 6 variants, tested by these laboratories are clear with lead much below the permissible limits. Winning back the trust of consumers and investors is key to reviving the brand image. The business performance of the company originates from the consumer performance. Nestle certainly recognizes this, and it is evident by the emphasis it led on rebuilding trust and consumer confidence at Bulcke’s press meet on June 16, 2015.
