His familycoat of arms, the nest with amother birdprotecting her young, became the Companyslogo and a symbol of theCompanys careand attitude tolife-long nutrition. The Nestlé nest represents thenourishment, securityand sense of family that are soessential to life.HISTORY OF NESTLE:1866 -1905 In the 1860s Henri Nestlé, a pharmacist, developed a foodfor babies who were unableto breastfeed. His first successwas a premature infant who could not tolerate hismothers milk or any of the usual substitutes. People quicklyrecognized the value of thenew product, after Nestlés newformula saved the childs life, and soon, Farine LactéeHenriNestlé was being sold in much of Europe.1905-1918 In 1905 Nestlé merged with the Anglo-Swiss Condensed MilkCompany. By the early1900s, the company was operatingfactories in the United States, Britain, Germany andSpain.World War I created new demand for dairy products in theform of governmentcontracts. By the end of the war,Nestlés production had more than doubled.1918 -1938 After the war Government contracts dried up and consumersswitched back to freshmilk. However, Nestlés managementresponded quickly, streamlining operations andreducingdebt. The 1920s saw Nestlés first expansion into newproducts, with chocolatethe Companys second mostimportant activity1938 -1944 Nestlé felt the effects of World War II immediately. Profitsdropped from $20 millionin 1938 to $6 million in 1939.Factories were established in developingcountries,particularly Latin America. Ironically, the war helped with theintroduction of theCompanys newest product, Nescafe,which was a staple drink of the US military.Nestlésproduction and sales rose in the wartime economy.1944 -1975
The end of World War II was the beginning of a dynamicphase for Nestlé. Growthaccelerated and companies wereacquired. In 1947 came the merger with Magiseasoningsand soups. Crosse & Blackwell followed in 1950, as didFindus (1963),Libbys (1971) and Stouffers (1973).Diversification came with a shareholding in LOréalin 1974.1975 -1981 Nestlés growth in the developing world partially offset aslowdown in the Companystraditional markets. Nestlé madeits second venture outside the food industry byacquiringAlcon Laboratories Inc...1981 -1996 Nestlé divested a number of businesses1980 / 1984. In 1984,Nestlés improved bottomline allowed the Company tolaunch a new round of acquisitions, the mostimportantbeing American food giant Carnation.1996+ The first half of the 1990s proved to be favorable for Nestlé:trade barriers crumbledand world markets developed intomore or less integrated trading areas. Since 1996there havebeen acquisitions including San Pellegrino (1997), SpillersPet foods (1998)and Ralston Purina (2002). There were twomajor acquisitions in North America, both in2002: in July,Nestlé merged its U.S. ice cream business into Dreyers, andin August, aUSD 2.6bn acquisition was announced of Chef America, Inc.Nestlé’s Vision:“At Nestle, we believe that research can help us tomake better food,so that people live a better life.”Mission Statement:“Nestle is dedicated to providing the bestfoods to people throughouttheir day,throughout their lives, throughout the world.With ourunique experience of anticipatingconsumers needs and creatingsolutions,Nestle contributes to your well-being andenhances yourquality of life.”Nestle is not only Switzerlands largest industrial company,but it is also the WorldsLargest Food Company.

Especially,people on the movewant to be able to find good foodwherever they are, whatever the time of day. They areoftenreassured that they will find well-known brands out of home. This statement alsoreflects the image of high qualityproducts that Nestle offers. Nestle has the advantagethat itoffers caterers, fast food chains and other restaurants acomplete range of highquality ingredients, base productsand meal components, as well as leading consumerbrandssuch as Nescafe. Quality is the cornerstone of the success of the Nestle

Demographic segmentationGEOGRAPHICALSEGMENTATION: The Company segments its market geographically ondivisional basis. They divide eachdivision in different zonesand every distributor is restricted to sale its products only inhis own zone.E.g. Lahore isdivided into five zones like East, West, South,North, and South west.DEMOGRAPHICAL FACTOR:If we look nestle pure lifes demographic segmentation thanwe will find that our productis for every one. People fromany area, any culture, any age, any sex, any belief andanyincome will drink water. It is not any luxury item which isused by a specific people.Targeting:A specific demographic target market was not chosen forNestle Pure Life; instead thegoal was to develop a productto be used by consumers of all ages - from infants toseniors.It was intended as a family product especially for familiesliving in large, pollutedurban agglomerations thatexperience increasing difficulties finding safe, healthydrinkingwater. In fact, Nestle Pure Lifes 0.5 L bottle istargeting to be also an alternative to softdrinks. Basicallythe target market of nestle water is those areas where theconsumershaving more awareness about pure life. As thepeople in villages having less informationabout Nestle Pure Life. So targeting marketingdepends on the awareness of theconsumers.SELETING TARGET MARKETTarget Market StrategiesUndifferentiatedmass market.Differentiated Segmented Marketing.ConcentrateMarketing.Micro marketing or Individual Marketing.PRODUCT LIFECYCLE:If we look nestle pure life water in product life cycle than iteasy to judge that it is atintroduction stage. Because Nestleis the market pioneer and at this stage its profit isnegativeor low due to low sale and high distribution and promotionexpenses. Othermajor reason to be at introduction stage isunawareness in rural areas. The people arenot aware to thepure life water that’s why their sale is low. They can bringchange inproduct life cycle by effective promotion, byformulating new price strategies etcMARKETINGENVIRONMENTInternal environmentMicro environmentMacro environment
