  13. 13. PRICING SURVEY DESIGN FOR CONJOINT ANALYSIS Attributes Levels Taste Colour Texture Fat content1 Smell Price2 (GBP/400g) 1 Tangy White Fluffy <=27 % Strong 1.89 2 Savory Cream Creamy 27 %-75 % Mild 1.723 Thick >=75 % 3 Salty-sweet Pale yellow 2.08  By Orthogonal array selection, No. of questions = 17  So, No. of questions in each survey = 20  No. of concept cards in each view = 2  Sample size = 36 1. Levels decided based on fat content of Hellman‟s real and light. Source: 2. Prices Source: 3. Competitor‟s product range does not include 400g pack so price for 430g has been converted to 400g
  14. 14. PRICING Pricing Analysis Survey: Sample Question
  15. 15. PRICING Feature Relative Importance (%) Level Distribution Salty-sweet Tangy Savory 0.510 4.35 Taste 0.480 0.499 22.95 7.11 Texture Fat content 26.14 White Cream Pale-yellow 0.451 0.594 0.436 Fluffy Creamy Thick 0.481 Color 0.531 0.489 <=27% 27%-75% >=75% 0.575 0.569 0.394 Strong Smell 16 Price(GBP/400gms) 23.44 Mild 0.554 0.444 1.89 1.72 2.08 0.484 0.586 0.424 Even though the most-accepted fat-content is less than 27%, the negligible difference between <=27% and 27%-75% indicates good acceptance
  16. 16. PRICING Relative Importance Of Attributes  The pie chart indicates the relative Price 24% Taste 4% importance of the six attributes studied in Colour 23% the survey:  As is evident in the results, fat content and price are the two most important characteristics.  Another interesting observation is that even though the respondents are extremely price sensitive, Hellman‟s is smell 16% Fat Content 26% Texture 7% the market leader despite being priced higher than the competitors. Hence, customers are willing to pay higher for a trustworthy brand.
  17. 17. PRICING 1.89 2.08 0.484 Price(GBP/400gms) 1.72 0.586 0.424 23.44 The relative importance of price in determining purchase intention is 2nd highest As expected, the utility of the lowest price point is the highest but looking at the market share of Hellman‟s in the UK we inferred that the price point of 1.89 GBP for the 400gms jar is apt As Essential+ is a better product, made with the double whipped technology to deliver a creamier texture at a lower fat level, lowering the price is not an option
  18. 18. PRICING Perception about Hellman‟s • Hellman‟s is perceived to be top-of –the market product. • Being used since generations • Real: Very rich, thick and smooth, salty-sweet flavor • Light: Lighter in texture, smooth, salty-sweet flavor Attributes sought in Mayonnaise • Smooth, rich texture and flavor • Tastes like home-made Market competitors • Heinz, • Essential Waitrose • Other private label players in supermarkets eg Tesco

PRICING Texture Color Taste FatContent Smell Price Expected Market Share Profile 11 Thick Pale Yellow Saltysweet >=70% Mild 1.89 16.67% Profile 2 Creamy Cream Saltysweet 30%70% Mild 2.08 55.56% Profile 3 Fluffy Cream Saltysweet <30% Mild 1.89 27.78% Market Share Simulation Pricing Decision • The results of the market-share simulation shows that even at an increased price of 2.09 GBP which is 5% more than Hellman‟s existing price point, the market share of Essential+ would be the highest as the other attributes are highly favorable • But qualitative analysis shows that consumers have an emotional connect with Hellman‟s and especially Real, so we do not propose raising the price of Essential+ as it might hamper trials. 1. The profiles have been chosen to resemble Hellman‟s Real and Light variants based on the results of the in-depth interviews
  20. 20. PLACE Supermarkets  With 5% growth rate in Super/hyper markets  As our mayonnaise consumption is increasing, we would invest more so as to compete with other brands for shelf space in Supermarket  High Level: M&S and Waitrose  Middle Level: Sainsbury‟s  Low Level: Tesco‟s  Focus on ASDA and Morrison due to their increasing presence Restaurants: Bar & Inn   Competitor penetration through this channel Focus on Subway and salad bars so to keep nutritious and healthy message  We do not recommend to present in fast food, at the beginning at least
