Tapal follows high-medium price strategy in which it offers high quality tea at reasonable prices. Tapal also follows a Going Rate Pricing strategy, in which it bases its price largely on competitors’ price that is Unilever. Unilever being the market leader always sets the price, and then Tapal accordingly allocates its prices, always lower than that of Unilever. Tea prices have fallen over the years which are because of reduced import duties and costs. Besides taking the competition into account, Tapal does cost plus pricing
In the beginning the company sole aim was to capture the tea market of Karachi, as they were already in tea business here, only and then strategically build there network to other cities of Pakistan.
Now Tapal has a distribution network spread across Pakistan, from Karachi to Khyber with over 410 distributors, Extensive training programs are provided for the devoted sales personnel. The popularity of its fine brands is unabated, making it the No.1 national tea company in Pakistan.
Tapal has a wider distribution coverage in the South where as Unilever has better distribution in the North. Therefore, Tapal’s main objective is to increase their sales in the North. It ensures that it places its tea in the same outlets as its competitors in order to maximize availability. The distribution coverage of Tapal is as follows:
Tapal caters to its customers by providing Tapal Danedar and Family Mistures to more than 140,000 outlets in Pakistan, which include superstores, department stores, general stores, medical stores, paan walas, grocery stores, merchants, etc. Grocery stores and merchants together provide 80% volume of the tea sales.
