  28. 28. Development of Healthy Foods mraket in BRIC Breaking the Rule!
  29. 29. The Health foods market develop in two ways in BRIC <ul><li>Classic Path </li></ul><ul><li>New “imported” categories such as isotonic hydration (a la Gatorade) will most </li></ul><ul><li>Likely develop in the classic left to right way, from high-value, niche </li></ul><ul><li>categories through to the high-volume mass markets. </li></ul><ul><li>Commodity Path </li></ul><ul><li>Most food commodity categories in BRIC such as water, cooking oils, and milk </li></ul><ul><li>follow the innovation cycle from Right to Left. </li></ul><ul><li>Fortification is the trigger to Branding efforts that target the Mass market and shift the structure of the category form Commodity to a Brand. </li></ul><ul><li>As branding becomes the norm, the category then develops through more added-value offers to finally target the Technology stakeholders through niche, high-value brands. </li></ul>
  30. 30. Three roles for the brand B I R C
  31. 31. Technology Stakeholders The BRIC Perspective <ul><li>In the past BRIC consumers sought solutions either through medicines or through traditional remedies. </li></ul><ul><li>However growing purchasing power and awareness of “science” are going to drive the growth of this segment in BRIC. </li></ul><ul><li>International </li></ul><ul><li>Credentials will be key </li></ul><ul><li>Global > Only Local </li></ul><ul><li>Disruptions in Delivery </li></ul><ul><li>Formats will be key </li></ul>MEDICAL EARLY ADOPTERS EARLY MAJORITY LATE MAJORITY LAGGARDS
  32. 32. Lifestyle Stakeholders The BRIC Perspective <ul><li>Rapid economic growths have not only created a large class of affluent consumers in BRIC, it has also empowered these consumers to tap into a shared global vision. This empowering globalization will shape Lifestyle innovations in health and wellness too and drive the growth of this segment in BRIC. </li></ul><ul><li>LS will see </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid growth in BRIC </li></ul><ul><li>LS in BRIC will be </li></ul><ul><li>Equally motivated by </li></ul><ul><li>Science AND Nature </li></ul><ul><li>Brands here in BRIC will </li></ul><ul><li>need significant </li></ul><ul><li>Look at Me values </li></ul>MEDICAL EARLY ADOPTERS EARLY MAJORITY LATE MAJORITY LAGGARDS
  33. 33. Anlene for bone health
  34. 34. Mass Market Stakeholders The BRIC Perspective <ul><li>Mass Market will be driven by the strong DEMOCRATIZATION force in BRIC. </li></ul><ul><li>New Health benefits introduced in the More premium segments will soon be demanded by Mass market Stakeholders. </li></ul><ul><li>Frugal Innovation will be the key to deliver relevant health benefits to MM. </li></ul><ul><li>Better Nutrition is a Health benefit in itself. </li></ul><ul><li>Family Health is a key motivator </li></ul><ul><li>Endorsement from Trusted Authority Sources is important </li></ul><ul><li>Packaging is key to introduce new healthy habits as well as deliver Value for Money </li></ul>MEDICAL EARLY ADOPTERS EARLY MAJORITY LATE MAJORITY LAGGARDS
  35. 35. The pride of the nation! <ul><li>Britannia fortified biscuits - India </li></ul>
  36. 36. Brands can take 3 Roles in H&W <ul><li>Brand from abroad </li></ul><ul><li>International brand that leverages its Global Credentials particularly in Science </li></ul><ul><li>Glocal Brand </li></ul><ul><li>Glocal brand that innovates by adapting it’s Global expertise with Local Preferences </li></ul><ul><li>National Pride Brand </li></ul><ul><li>Local brand that builds on it’s local heritage and positions itself as the National Pride </li></ul>
  37. 37. Role of Brands in BRIC <ul><li>BRIC markets have traditionally seen more uncertainty that their European/US counterparts. </li></ul><ul><li>Hence, brands are powerful guarantors of reassurance and safety. </li></ul><ul><li>Once a brand earns the trust of consumers, it gains the Right to Play in multiple categories. </li></ul><ul><li>Particularly in health and wellness, brand credentials are a huge asset. Hence, a brand that has succeeded in setting a STANDARD in one category can then innovate by extending the brand equity in multiple categories. </li></ul>
  39. 39. Five innovation strategies B I R C
  40. 40. Five Key Innovation Strategies <ul><li>Five Innovation strategies with varying Innovation quotients & Market disruption ability: </li></ul><ul><li>Leveraging hidden nutritional assets </li></ul><ul><li>New category creation </li></ul><ul><li>New segment creation </li></ul><ul><li>Category substitution </li></ul><ul><li>The functional foods make-over </li></ul><ul><li>[1] The Food and Health Marketing Handbook </li></ul>
  41. 41. New Category Creation - BRIC <ul><li>Create an entirely new category of food or drinks. </li></ul><ul><li>It satisfies an unmet consumer need. </li></ul><ul><li>It is primarily based on a new type of consumption situation. </li></ul>Create A New Category By Innovating In Distribution Channel Comvita is a brand of manuka honey which is said to have anti-microbial properties. New Zealand based company Comvita targeted Hong Kong and then mainland China through its own-branded stores and created a new super-premium segment of health supplements. Comvita honey is today one of the fastest growing natural wellness supplements in China and its own branded stores reinforce it’s imagery of “specialness” and also help maintain the premium margins.
  42. 42. Whole Category Substitution-BRIC <ul><ul><li>Offer the health benefits of another (possibly competing) category in a more healthy and/or convenient format. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Thus, attract consumers to the new category at the expense of the category whose benefit has been taken by it. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Kellogg’s India launched a small flexible pack of Chocos in India </li></ul><ul><li>They chose a celebrity endorser to promote the brand-pack as a fun , healthy snack </li></ul><ul><li>Aggressively merchandising it with other snack foods, Kellogg’s targeted this at Mums as a healthy substitute to crisps and as a healthy mini-bite for children’s lunch boxes too. </li></ul><ul><li>It was an unique attempt to substitute a range of snacks by positioning Chocos as Fun and Tasty alternative to unhealthy snacks. </li></ul>
  43. 43. Functional Foods Makeover - BRIC <ul><li>A “Me Too” strategy where the later players offer the same benefits as the Early Entrants. </li></ul><ul><li>In the West therefore the only differentiator in this strategy is Lower Price </li></ul><ul><li>However </li></ul><ul><li>In BRIC, given the huge Mass Market opportunity as well as the Bottom of the Pyramid opportunity, this Innovation Strategy can pay rich dividends. </li></ul><ul><li>The challenge is to create Better Value  price is only one factor. </li></ul><ul><li>Accessible Health in the Consumer’s Hands is the key deliverable of this strategy  hence pack innovations, formulation innovations, innovative education are all equally critical. </li></ul><ul><li>The packaged water category in India is one where we see this strategy in action. </li></ul><ul><li>A large number of local companies shave entered the market and are offering the benefit of “clean, drinking water” even to the poorest consumers in polyester sachets/pouches that are lower in price than the conventional 1l PET bottles and serve as hygienic, safe thirst quenchers. </li></ul>
  44. 44. The rule for Market Innovation in BRIC countries: Be prepared to break all rules: Be prepared to reshape brand offers to fit into BRIC consumers’ expectations from the category. Be prepared to innovate and create brand value by leveraging and fitting into local habits and cultural codes. Be prepared to innovate your brand to keep step with the changing aspirations of the growing urban middle class Be prepared to enter the market in a classic Western way starting in premium or the other way around. Be prepared to rethink your innovation strategies.
