  2. 2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARYCadbury Dairy Milk is considered to be the „golden‟ brand under the corporate umbrella,Cadbury (now acquired by Kraft), since its 107 years of existence. In its initial years inIndia, this brand was a monopoly in the chocolate market due to less competition. Thisgave the brand a big boost to be easily accepted by the consumers and thus, it was able tocharge a premium for its sheer quality and exceptional taste.Cadbury Dairy Milk is a clear winner with respect to the market share in the chocolatecategory in India. This gives us the past performance of the brand, but is uncertain aboutthe future growth. Thus, based on two models the brand audit was conducted:Young & Rubicam’s Brand Asset Valuator®This quantitative model gives the current strength and growth potential of the brand. Italso conveys whether the consumers‟ perception of the brand is same as the messageconveyed by the brand.Zaltman Metaphor Elicitation TestThis qualitative model gives the consumers‟ inner values of the brand. It also conveys thecurrent perception of the brand.Based on the analysis of both the models, Cadbury Dairy Milk will be the leader in thechocolate market due to its excellent positioning and marketing mix. 2

  4. 4. TIMELINE OF CADBURY 1824 - John Cadbury opened a shop in Birmingham in UK 1897 - The Cadbury Brothers first made milk chocolate 1900 - George Cadbury was determined to meet this challenge and, together with the experts from the Bournville factory, started to research new recipes and production methods 1904 - The recipe was perfected and a delicious new milk chocolate was made with full cream milk 1905 - The chocolate was launched under the name Cadbury Dairy Milk (CDM) 1948 - Cadbury India limited was set up as a wholly owned subsidiary of the UK-based Cadbury Schweppes Overseas Limited 2010 – Kraft acquired CadburyTransformation of Cadbury Dairy Milk: 4
  5. 5. Cadbury India Limited:Cadbury has successfully differentiated CDM over the years by strategic brand buildingin India. The company had realized that chocolates by itself do not satisfy any immediateneeds (soft drinks would satisfy thirst, ice cream would provide relief from heat), so theywould have to be associated with human feelings of romance, magic, love and affection.So it had at one point of time employed emotional attachment as basis of differentiation. Market Share of Chocolates in Market Share of Chocolates in India (2011) India (2011) (Rs.2500 crore) (Rs.2500 cr) 6% 30% 43% CDM 22% Cadbury 5 Star Nestle 14% Munch 72% 5% 8% Others Kit Kat OthersOn analyzing the market, the success of the company can be associated to:The Pioneer Advantage (First Mover Advantage) – Cadbury was the first to enter theIndian market in 1948. For a long time, it was practically the only dominant player in themarket. It, therefore, enjoyed a large share of both customer‟s heart and mind. So muchso that for an entire generation, chocolate was synonymous with Cadbury. It is onlyrecently that the company has started facing some threat from Nestle.A Strong Endorser brand - Cadbury realized early that volumes would not be enough tosupport all its brands with heavy advertisements. Hence they took CDM as the flagshipbrand and advertised it heavily to popularize the brand name to help the flanker brandsaround CDM. 5
  6. 6. Right Product Formulation - The climatic conditions and the Indian taste were verydifferent from the western markets (where the company first started its operations).Cadbury was able to successfully reformulate its product as per the Indian conditions,while Nestle could not do so in its initial stage.Presence in all segments – Cadbury has a presence in the entire range, starting from lowpriced hard-boiled sweets and sugar confectionery to the premium range of chocolates.The company also claims success in all these segments it has been entering recently.BRAND POSITIONING:Positioning is the space occupied by Cadbury Dairy Milk in the minds of the consumer.For the chocolate market, Cadbury is pitted against competitors like Nestle, Amul andsubstitutes like, chips, biscuits, mithai and other light snacks. Idea of positioning Cadburyis to occupy a distinct space, which is differentiable, yet powerful.Phase 1:This ad firmly established awareness for CDM in the country. It broughttogether cricket, youth and a simple catchy tune.The most important aspect was that the Target Group (TG) was theprojected audience of the advertisement. The TG was No Longer limitedto kids. It was about every age group of life, from kids to adults. Thecampaign positioned Cadbury to be associated with the „special quality‟that all of us possess and are particularly proud of (kuch khaas hai hamsabhi mein)The efforts were focused on expanding the market piesimultaneously with its share in it. 6
  7. 7. Phase 2: Cadbury wanted to increase the number of occasions for chocolate consumption. They realized that CDM might be an impulse buy, but it was not impulse consumption. When the „impulse buy‟ to „impulse consumption‟ transition takes place, the frequency as well as quantity of purchase goes up. Hence, Cadbury gave the users more reasons to eat chocolates through the following ad: “Khane Waale Ko Khane ka Bahana Chahiye”Phase 3:Chocolate consumption is always seen as an act of indulgence and self-pampering by the individual. This was followed up by positioning CDM asthe means to celebrate happiness in both small and big things in life. Thefoundation was laid about CDM being the celebration mode, using thefamous „pappu paas ho gaya„ campaign with Amitabh Bacchan. This wasthe first connect to CDM being usable as „sweets‟.Phase 4: They have now recently started positioning CDM as a sweet- substitute. Bringing in occasions of sweet consumption, such as beginning new endeavors (shubh aarambh), CDM has put itself as a possible replacement for sweet. The campaign sticks to the original backdrop of simple things in life that bring a smile to face. 7
  8. 8. PROMOTION:Cadbury’s Mishti Shera Shrishti- a creative Brand CampaignA creative Brand campaign hit the streets of Kolkata on Monday, 9th January 2012.Scenario: After Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye, (encouraging families to enjoy Cadbury‟s postdinner) Cadbury moved one chain up. They conducted a competition amongst 9 Mishtimakers (such as KC Das) and the subject was to make sweets with CDM as an ingredient.The best Mishti Maker Award was given based on the consumers‟ feedback.Objective: To increase the consumption and to encourage the usage of CDM as anintegral part of sweets 8
  9. 9. YOUNG & RUBICAM’S BRAND ASSET VALUATOR®Young and Rubicam, a marketing communications agency, developed a quantitative toolcalled Brand Asset Valuator® (BAV). It was developed to diagnose the power and valueof a brand. BAV uses two dimensions: 1. Brand Vitality (Strength): It is a combination of Differentiation (Distinction of brand in the market) and Relevance (Brand‟s appropriateness to the customer) 2. Brand Stature: It is a combination of Esteem (Quality perception, Popularity and regards for the brand in the mind of the consumers) and Knowledge (Recognition and recall of the brand).FOUR PILLARS OF BRAND ASSET VALUATOR®:Relevance: It measures the personal appropriateness of a brand to a consumer and isstrongly tied to household penetration.Differentiation: It is a technique that measures the strength of the brand‟s meaning and italso helps the brand to stand apart from its competitors.Knowledge: Brand knowledge is about the awareness and understanding of the brand‟scharacteristics. This gives the level of involvement shown by the consumer towards thebrand. 9
  10. 10. Esteem: It is the extent to which consumers like a brand and hold it in his/her highregards. It is driven by two factors: Perception of quality and popularity, which dependsupon the country and culture.RESEARCH METHODOLOGY: Sample Size: 40 Target Group: Consumers of Chocolate in the age group of 18-25 Sampling Technique: Simple Random Sampling Data Collection: Computer Assisted Personal InterviewingFor this research, Cadbury 5 Star, Nestle Munch and Nestle Kit Kat were taken ascompetitors of CDM.The results of questions 1 – 6 gave the number of respondents who answered thequestions correctly.

Each question was given a50% weightage and was multiplied with the number of responses for a particular brand.The results of questions 9 - 10 gave the number of respondents who preferred a brand tothe others, based on their esteem factors. The respondents were told to rank the brandsfrom 1 to 4 and their weights were assigned from 4 to 1. The weights were multipliedwith their respective ranks.

  16. 16. ZALTMAN METAPHOR ELICITATION TECHNIQUE (ZMET) ZMET is a qualitative research technique used to discover a person‟s conscious and unconscious thoughts about a brand. It is conducted by asking him/her to collect pictures of his/her mental representation of the brand. These pictures act as metaphors that serve an entry point into his/her feelings. Pictures are very important in a research because some feelings can be missed out in the absence of it. ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ORIGIN OF ZMET In 1990, Dr. Olson Zaltman (founder of ZMET) thought about the power of usingimagery in research while on a vacation in Nepal. Zaltman gave the local residents somedisposable cameras and asked them to take pictures that would explain „What life waslike in their villages‟. After developing the pictures, Zaltman returned to the village to ask the residentsabout what they meant in the photograph. For example, the photographers often cut offpeople‟s feet in the photographs and this was intentional. In Nepal, bare foot is a sign ofpoverty. Zaltman believed that the imagery tended to reveal ideas that would have beendifficult or unacceptable to put into words.BRANDS THAT USE ZMET 16
