• Product (unique selling points)
The main USP is that you get all of these
features in one single product.
Product Life Cycle
• The product according to us is in the market
introduction stage. So there is minimal competition
and high initial costs and the demand has to be
created by us primararily.
Packaging is of prime importance
as it is an edible product and no
deterioration can be tolerated.
Also proper information about
ingredients and all other
important stuff such as expiry date
needs to be there on the
packaging as people have to
consume the product.
In the underdeveloping markets
less fancy packing will be used in
order to provide those product at
the lowest possible cost.
Eco friendly plastic
• Green Plastics, sometimes also called Bioplastics,
are plastics that are biodegradable and are usually
made mostly or entirely from renewable resources.
• We will be using green plastic for our packaging in
order to reduce the social costs of our operations.
Price (pricing strategies)
1. Low per unit cost.
2. Easily affordable.
3. Pricing objective is profit maximization as this is a
relatively new market and competition is minimal.
4. The pricing method used will be cost-plus pricing.
5. Price floor will be the cost of variable inputs and
price ceiling will be determined according to the
6. Discounts to be given on bulk purchases.
• Price discrimination:-
We will follow price discrimination as our products are going
into two very different markets.
For the developed markets we will follow price discrimination
and charge higher profits as people in such markets care
much about there health than money whereas in the lesser
developed markets prices will be lower in order to attract
more and more customers and to take advantage of
economies of scale.
1. Three level distribution will be used through
distributors, wholesalers and retailers as
these are low priced consumer goods which
need to be distributed through convenience
2) Target Markets
We have divided our markets
into two separate segments:-
a)Underdeveloped markets:- In
these markets we will be
concentrating on selling this
product as a health drink so as to
control the widespread
malnutrition in these areas.
b) Developed markets:- For these markets we
will target the constantly busy working class
who do not get time for maintaining a healthy
Large scale advertising is needed as this is a consumer good
and should be on the tip of everybody’s tongue. Also this is a
new product and market so extensive advertising through
newspapers, internet and television is needed.
The product needs to be associated with a sports person as it will
increase its value as a health drink. A bunch of sports persons
from various fields will increase the goodwill of the product which
is needed in the earlier stages. As we are the first mover we don’t
have the luxury of taking advantage of others advertising. Here
we have to advertise for the whole market not only our company.
• Free Samples
Large scale sampling needs
to be done as the taste is
one of the important
attribute of the produce and
for this we have come out
with the concepts of vita
girls who will go around with
samples and take feedback.

•Threats from existing companies

• In order to survive we need to grow, we plan
to integrate backwards by doing our own
packaging and trying to produce as much raw
material as possible which in the long run
should save us 80% of our costs. We also plan
to internationalize as and when opportunities
• We have wide international
prospects. We can expand to
modern busy cities such as
Tokyo and New York and also
to the lesser developed parts
of the world where nutrition
lacks. Our product is so
versatile that we can enter
any market we want two.
• We have come out with a two stage internationalization
• First step is to export into countries with similar tastes and
preferences like India such as our neighboring countries,
• The second step is to go beyond our neighbors and make
country specific product for different market i.e localize our
Further down the line we plan to make investment in the
foreign countries and continue production there instead of
exporting. This will help us to reduce costs greatly by
producing more in countries where production cost ios less.

gross margins rising to around 200 % in the next 5 years.
Corporate Social Responsibility
• As our commitment to the society we plan to

the UNFP (United Nations Food Program ) in
order to help curb malnutrition.
