COMPETATIVE ASSESMENT Food feuds keep share markets as well as consumers perennially interested. At first, it was the cola giants that attacked each other using their ad campaigns as daggers, and now the battlefield is fast becoming accustomed to the chocolate giants – Cadbury and Nestle. These are both global brands which have been competing neck and neck over market share for decades. However, their approach to advertising was never as direct as it has become in the last three years. Taking a lesson out of the cola giants‟ battlebook, Nestle is waging nothing short of a public war against Cadbury through its ad campaigns. Cadbury has, without a doubt, always been seen as the market leader. It leads the pack in the Rs. 4,000-crore branded chocolate sector in India Even though several brands such as Amul and Campco tried to break into the market, none of them succeeded in shaking Cadbury‟s grip Nestle is the only real competition Cadbury has had in its long run as market leader.
Direct Competition Cadbury captures 70% of market Nestle captures 25% of market share share. In Cadbury Dairy Milk accounts In Nestle Munch accounts for for maximum share maximum share Five star come at 2nd place Kit Kat comes at 2nd place
INDIRECT COMPETITION Since the target audience includes, consumers of not only chocolates but also of biscuits and confectionary products like toffees, candies etc have proved to be indirect competition (however would be limited since we are targeting small segment)
Marketing programs :advertisingTag line: Khao Bina Taarikh DekheClient: Nestle IndiaBrand: MunchCreative Director: Anuja ChauhanDuration: 20 secsYear: 2009Story : After the popular ambush marketing by PepsiCo & Coca-Cola India, chocolate majors CadburyIndia & Nestle India can be seen at loggerheads in the ad mad world. In most cases it is the smallbrother taking on the big brother. Likewise, in this spoof, Nestle Munch has challenged CDM‟s(Cadbury Dairy Milk) campaign „Aaj pehli tarikh hai‟ with its tagline „Sirf pehli tarikh ko nahin, kabhi bhikha sakte hai‟.Message: With the tag line „Khao Bina Tarikh Dekhe‟, Nestlés „combative advertising‟ campaign directlymocks Cadbury‟s brand proposition. With this ad, Nestle India wants to dilute the brand proposition ofCadbury, tickling its viewers & stealing the sweetness from Dairy Milk. Munch is a vibrant brand with apersonality that is clearly associated with fun. Its advertising has always highlighted the „fun inconsumption‟. This ad is to take that message further down.
Insight: Consumers are still fairly basic & in today‟s world of complicated lives we all like to witness some free action sequences. Going by its popularity, it‟s clear that consumers enjoy collisions, thrive on simple skirmishes & thus absolutely love the war between brands or celebrities. Goof In The Spoof: The easiest thing to do is to criticize intelligent ideas (seriously). But Munch‟s attempt has fallen flat & there isn‟t really much to counter the Cadbury campaign, which has proved to be clutter breaking. So before taking head on Punga with CDM‟s high-voltage campaign, Munch should have considered that spoofs are about puncturing any pretence, but then the brand character has to be such. That‟s certainly not the case with Nestlé Munch. Unlike Sprite, it‟s not in the brand‟s natural scheme. In other words, this ad war is unlikely to go on forever. Freshness: The Pehli Tarikh campaign is an easy prey, having focused too sharply on the pay day insight makes it vulnerable. But Munch has wasted a big opportunity to counter it by producing a sloppy spoof. The Munch ad, in this case, looks like a poor mimic of something that stands strong already. Actually the ad language is very edgy-buzzy that excites the youth but the script is poor & the cast even poorer. How could this ad dent the buzz that the Cadbury campaign created amongst consumers? Verdict: Spoofing, if not executed well, runs the risk of reminding the consumer of the original brand. In this case, it seems to have done just that. But spoofs do make brands come alive which haven‟t been able to make much of an impact; they make the whole category much more alive & bring more consumers to it. This advert has certainly livened up the chocolate category.
