  • 8. Project on Marketing Strategy COCA COLA INTERNATIONALHISTORY:Coca-Cola Enterprises, established in 1986, is a young company by thestandards of the Coca-Cola system. Yet each of its franchises has a strongheritage in the traditions of Coca-Cola that is the foundation for this Company.The Coca-Cola Company traces it’s beginning to 1886, when an Atlantapharmacist, Dr. John Pemberton , began to produce Coca-Cola syrup for sale infountain drinks. However the bottling business began in 1899 when twoChattanooga businessmen, Benjamin F. Thomas and Joseph B. Whitehead ,secured the exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola for most of the UnitedStates from The Coca-Cola Company.The Coca-Cola bottling system continued to operate as independent, localbusinesses until the early 1980s when bottling franchises began to consolidate.In 1986, The Coca-Cola Company merged some of its company-ownedoperations with two large ownership groups that were for sale, the John T.Lupton franchises and BCI Holding Corporations bottling holdings, to formCoca-Cola Enterprises Inc. The Company offered its stock to the public onNovember 21, 1986, at a split-adjusted price of $5.50 a share. On an annualbasis, total unit case sales were 880,000 in 1986.In December 1991, a merger between Coca-Cola Enterprises and the JohnstonCoca-Cola Bottling Group, Inc. (Johnston) created a larger, stronger Company,again helping accelerate bottler consolidation. As part of the merger, the seniormanagement team of Johnston assumed responsibility for managing theCompany, and began a dramatic, successful restructuring in 1992.Unit casesales had climbed to 1.4 billion, and total revenues were $5 billion 8

In key markets, the company has created new packaging sizesto satisfy consumer demands.Increasingly, Mexican families have lunch together at home. The average Mexicanhousehold drinks two-and-a-half liters or more of soft drinks during that break, while a two-liter bottle was the largest available package. So the company introduced a convenient 2-½liter bottle to select regions, contributing to the sale of nearly 1.5 billion unit cases of Coca-Cola in Mexico this year. This larger bottle will complete its nationwide rollout in 2002. InChina, Coca-Cola is an integral part of holiday celebrations and the family get-togethersthat accompany such events. Through an intense focus on Coca-Cola, innovation and newbeverages, it has achieved volume growth of 10 percent in 2001. In China, sales of Coca-Cola increased by 6 percent. In the United States, recognizing that consumers often enjoytheir diet Coke with a slice of lemon, the company "bottled" the concept. The result—dietCoke with lemon—contributed to volume growth of 4 percent for the number-one diet.Soft drink in North America: diet Coke. The company increased its two largest bottle sizesduring the 2001 holidays, and festival packaging helped drive a 6 percent volume increasefor Coca-Cola. The packaging innovations do not just involve resizing. The company hasalso responded to consumers changing fashion styles with new bottles.With brands such as Minute Maid, Hi-C, Simply Orange and Disney juices and juicedrinks in the United States, Qoo in Asia, Kapo in Latin America and Bibo in Africa.This year, the company re-launched its global sports-drink business, investing in newproducts, packaging, positioning and marketing.

Revitalized in the UnitedStates, the company introduced Powerade in nearly every major Western Europeanmarket, including Great Britain, Germany and Spain, as well as in Mexico and LatinAmerica. The company launched 27 products in 2001.The commitment of the company to packaging innovation also resulted in new initiatives forour fountain business, a channel through which many consumers enjoy Coca-Cola. In theUnited States, the company developed Fountain, a total beverage dispensing system thatis more flexible and more reliable. Two years of research resulted in a dispensing systemthat provides exceptional beverage quality, easy to upgrade technology, brand and graphiccustomization and improved reliability. 21

  • 26. Project on Marketing StrategyPROMISE OF COKEThe basic proposition of our business is simple, solid and timeless. When we bringrefreshment, value, joy and fun to our stakeholders, then we successfully nurture andprotect our brands, particularly Coca-Cola. That is the key to fulfilling our ultimate obligationto provide consistently attractive returns to the owners of our business.TARGET MARKETCoke’s commercials basically based on young generations, So, the young generation is thetarget market of Coke because they want to represent Coke with the youth and energy butthey also consider about the old people they take then as a co-target market.MAJOR SEGMENTSMajor segments are basically those people who take this drink daily and those areas wherethe demands is higher then the other areas. There are so many people who take this drinkdaily and those people who take weekly and those who take less often are always there aswell. So, their basic segments are those people who take this drink regularly.FACTORS EFFECTING SALESThere are so many factors, which affects the sale of coke. Here we are discussing threemajor factors which effects coke.• Per capita income• Competitors• WeatherPer Capita IncomeFirst we will discuss about “ Per capita income”. This is major factor that affects the sale ofthis soft drink. Because which every passing year budgets are becoming very strict andtight in order to purchase things. So the disposable incomes of the people are comingdown. They spend heavily on rents, utilities, and education and basic necessities and afterthat when they get extra money they think about this soft drink .So the decreasing percapita income effects badly in selling and production of this soft drink. 26
  • 27. Project on Marketing Strategy And to get through with this difficulty there is need to increase the level of per capitaincome of Pakistan because it is much lesser than the rest of the countries.CompetitorsCoke’s major competitor is “PEPSI” and there is no hesitation to say this because everyone knows that and all the other cold drinks and water, coffee, tea are the competitors.WeatherWeather is the third major factor in effecting the Coke’s selling. This is underdevelopedmarket so the coke’s consumption in summers is 60% and in winters is 40%.MAJOR CUSTOMERS NEEDFirst of all the majority don’t care that what they are going to have. In other words, theydon’t care before drinking that whether it is “Pepsi” or “coke”. They don’t actuallydifferentiate between these two brands in order to their tastes.Consumers basically drink what they get.They believe on “WHAT COLD THEY SOLD”Consumer’s availability in brands is basically works like:Push availabilityPull consumer’s demand.For this reason Coca-Cola have provided their coolers and freezers in the market. Theyhave maximum number of coolers and freezers in the market. They provide thisinfrastructure free of cost just to provide child coke to their customer, which they want to bepurchase.Their salesman and mechanics regularly visit all the shops where coke has itsinfrastructure to check that either it is in proper condition or not, if not then they immediatelychange or repair it. 27
  • 28. Project on Marketing StrategyMAJOR COMPETITORSConsumers firstly decide that they are going to have a soft drink. Then they competebrands with each other. Like they compete Coke with Pepsi and Sprite with 7up andteam .So the major competitor of Coke is Pepsi.When they motivate to any other brand or on Coke it’s in instinct basically that based onmessages derive certain feelings.But Coca Cola thinks in a different way, they believe that RC Cola, new coming AMRATCola, and all juices, even they take water and tea as their competitors.STRATEGIES OF QUALITYAfter Micro and macro analysis Brand “coke” is primarily role 1. Enhance competition moments 2. When people watch cricket 3. Through commercialization 4. Fun timeThough these strategies there could be better understanding and better connection with thepublic. These are the “key consumption”.THREATS FROM COMPETITORSThreats are well planned. Price is the major threat. When price goes certain beyond theexact price whether come down or go higher its effects the consumption of soft drink.Because when the price go higher people go for the substitute of “coke” i.e. Pepsi.And when price goes down they think that there is must be some thing wrong in it.In short it all depends on customer’s perception.TARGETS THAT WOULD LIKE TO ATTAINEvery organization runs on the bases of profit maximization so Coke is also looking for ahigh profit margin.There are three major ways of making money • Over night profit • Windfall profit • Ethical and un-ethical ways 28
  • 29. Project on Marketing StrategyOver Night ProfitsThey could be over night profit that is for the number 1 brand for the year.

So for this coca cola company should produce their product according to the local demand. • Marketing team should try to increase the availability of Coke in rural areas. • They should also focus the old people. • Now young generation has a trend to drink a coke 2 regular bottles at same time, so providing more satisfaction to them company should introduce ½ liter disposable bottle. 43
  • 44. Project on Marketing StrategyPEST ANALYSIS OF COCA-COLAThere are four variables, which we will discuss in our report, they are: POLITICAL VARIABLES Political variables Strongly Some what No Some what Strongly Effected Effected Effect Effected Effected ++ + +− − −− Effects of government NE regulations & deregulations Effect of environmental YES protection laws if any Import and export NE regulations Effect of political NE conditions in certain countries of Coke Any effect of election, YES military take over, Revolution at CokeConclusion Of Political Analysis:As far as the above table is concerned it could be seen that there are very littlechances of “political variables” to effect the coke’s production and selling behavior.In the “political variables” most of the things are related to Governmental activities.So, they don’t leave any good or bad impact in the Industry of coke.And there are some exceptional things like: “environmental protection laws” theysome what effect the industry of Coke. From last two years Government is going tobe really very much conscious about the environment. But after making theadjustments in plants and applying the proper way of wastage the chances of beingaffected by the “protection laws” are going to be diminished. So it impact good forthe Coke’s reputation. And the second thing in political variables which effects Cokeis “elections & military take over” Because in the days of elections and marshallaw’s condition the countries production in any field is declined. So it affects slightlythe revolution of Coke.So “political conditions” are over all leave neutral effects on coke’s industry. 44

Economicfactors are those actors who effect the production of any industry. So, Coke is not the out ofquestion. If the economic conditions of the country is not that strong and Coke increases itsPrice in this situation. Then it would impact highly negative. And inflation is also not a goodposition for any country’s production point of view. It also impacts highly negative in theCoke’s production.And as a country concerned like “Pakistan” where the unemployment rate is very muchhigh. The Coca-Cola system in Pakistan employs 1,800 people. During the last 2 years, theCoca-Cola system in Pakistan has involved over $130 million (U.S).When we draw the conclusion of “economic variables”. Then we come to know that ifeconomic variables are in the favorable position of country then they impact good otherwise the impact highly bad. 45
