• We have made separate plan for separate age groups.
• We will be targeting the first three groups covering 94.7 % of population.
• Our strategy is purely penetration into Indian chocolate market
• We would like to target the with the same products. No new product
• In our marketing plan we have suggested collaboration with many
institutions & organization's.
Marketing Plan for Age group 0 to 18
• Total Population : 0.483 billion
• Studying in school : 0.241 billion
• We have traditions of distributing sweets to all school students after Flag
hosting on 15th August (Independence day) & 26th January (Republic day).
• We propose, Cadbury to tie up with bigger chain of school for distribution
of Dairy Milk Chocolate on 15th Aug & 26th Jan.
• In future this can be extended to Birthday’s & Children's day.
• CDM has more nutritional value for children's than any other sweet.
Marketing Plan for Age group 19 to 35
• Total Population : 0.343 billion
• Best way to catch this population on internet (on Facebook).
• Most people wishes birthday to their friends & family member on
• We propose, Cadbury to tie up with Facebook, So one week before
birthday Facebook will give the reminder.
• “Do you want to send chocolates on your friends birthday”
• All the Cadbury chocolates options will appear.
• Select the Chocolate, Gift wrapping & Birthday message for your friend &
place the order online. The order will be received in district distributor
system, Same will be packed & dispatched by Courier at the delivery
Marketing Plan for Age group 36 to 65
• Total Population : 0.381 billion
• This is majorly working population of India.
• This population can be targeted on Birthday at office, for Gifting, on
marriages (with Marriage invitation card & after marriage), on festivals,
special occasions & many more occasions.
• Indian Chocolate Industry is a unique mix with
extreme consumption patterns, attitudes, beliefs,
income level and spending
• Understanding the consumer demands and
maintaining the quality will be essential
• So we think that bringing online sales(through
facebook) & increasing the institutional sales(in
unique way) would bring prosperity and increase
the sales of Cadbury’s as a whole again resulting
in the goodwill of the company.
