History & Background of Nestlé

1866-1905: The pioneer years

Our history begins in 1866, with the foundation of the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company. Henri Nestlé develops a breakthrough infant food in 1867, and in 1905 the company he founded merges with Anglo-Swiss, to form what is now known as the Nestlé Group. During this period cities grow and railways and steamships bring down commodity costs, spurring international trade in consumer goods.

1905-1913: The Belle Époque

In 1905, Nestlé & Anglo Swiss has more than 20 factories, and starts using overseas subsidiaries to establish a sales network that spans Africa, Asia, Latin America and Australia. As World War One approaches, the firm benefits from the period of prosperity known as the Belle Époque or ‘Beautiful Age’, and becomes a global dairy company.

1914-1918: Survival during wartime

The outbreak of war in 1914 leads to increased demand for condensed milk and chocolate, but a shortage of raw materials and limits on cross-border trade hamper production for Nestlé &Anglo-Swiss. To solve this problem, the company acquires processing facilities in the US and Australia, and by the end of the war it has 40 factories.

1919-1938: Crisis and opportunity

After the war military demand for canned milk declines, causing a major crisis for Nestlé & Anglo-Swiss in 1921. The company recovers, but is rocked again by the Wall Street Crash in 1929, which reduces consumer purchasing power. However, the era carries many positives: the company’s management corps is professionalized, research is centralized and pioneering products such as Nescafé coffee are launched.

1939-1947: Riding out the storm

The outbreak of World War Two in 1939 affects virtually every market, but Nestlé & Anglo-Swiss continues to operate in difficult circumstances, supplying both civilians and armed forces. In 1947, the company adds Maggi soups and seasonings to its product range, and adopts the name Nestlé Alimentana.

1948-1959: Greater consumer convenience

The post-war period is marked by growing prosperity, and people in the US and Europe spend money on machines that make life easier, such as refrigerators and freezers. They also favor convenience foods, and Nestlé Alimentana meets this need with new products including Nesquikand Maggi ready meals. 

1960-1980: Frozen foods to pharmaceuticals

Acquisitions enable Nestlé to enter fast-growing new areas such as frozen foods, and to expand its traditional businesses in milk, coffee and canned foods. In the 1970s the company diversifies into pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It starts to attract criticism from activist groups that allege its marketing of infant food is unethical. Nestlé later becomes one the first companies to apply the WHO code on breast-milk substitutes across its business.

1981-2005: Towards Nutrition, Health and Wellness

Following years of growth, Nestlé disposes of unprofitable brands and promotes those that satisfy increasingly health conscious consumers, in line with its new ‘Nutrition, Health and Wellness’ ambition. The company expands in the US, Eastern Europe and Asia, and targets for global leadership in water, ice cream and animal food.

2006-Today: Creating Shared Value

Nestlé articulates its Creating Shared Value approach to business for the first time, and launches its Nestlé Cocoa Plan and Nescafé Plan to further develop sustainable supply chains in cocoa and coffee. While strengthening its position in traditional segments, infant formula and frozen foods, Nestlé strengthens its focus on medical nutrition.

Nestle Pakistan

Nestle Pakistan is a subsidiary of Nestle S.A- a company of Swiss origin headquartered in Vevey, Switzerland. Nestlé begins its long relationship with South Asia when the Nestlé Angle-Swiss Condensed Milk Company starts importing and selling finished products in the Indian market. Production of long shelf-life UHT milk begins at MILKPAK Ltd. Sheikhupura factory, Pakistan. Along with the milk the Sheikhupura factory starts the production of NESTLÉ NIDO milk powder and cereals so, a new plant is acquired at Kabirwala in the Punjab. The milk processing plant at Kabirwala district is the Nestlé’s world largest milk processing plant. Nestlé takes over the running of the company and begins to develop its milk collection network. Later, MILKPAK Ltd. is renamed Nestlé Milkpak Ltd.

NESTLÉ PURE LIFE bottled water is premiered in Pakistan. Within a few years it becomes one of the world’s leading brands of bottled water. Nestlé Pakistan acquires the Fontalia and AVA water companies which specialize in supplying water to homes and offices. Meanwhile, Nestlé milk collection system in the Punjab matures and the company is able to buy all its milk from farmers instead of relying on contractors.

Nestle Marketing Strategy:

The products include features that contain the combination of both health and hygiene keeping in mind the individuals requirements in terms of taste. However the marketing will be done considering the concept of mass percentage.

Products will be tailored to individual needs (desired taste) but promotion will attract all of them collectively. Furthermore Nestlé will be following pull strategy and approach its end users itself with the help of various promotional activities. For the distribution of products, no intermediary (whole sellers) is involved. The distribution channel is direct.

Target Market:

Knowing the fact that Nestle cannot be everything for everyone, it will be targeting only those segments that can provide best possible returns so that it may reach its goals effectively and efficiently.

The target market collectively consists of males and females in Lahore and Karachi of age group less than 18-30 belonging to middle class, not finding any other provider on terms of quality, hygiene and taste.

Market Segmentation:-

Nestle has divided its market into geographic, demographic, psychographic and behavioral segments. These segments will help to understand the market better and in implementation of marketing strategies.

  • Geographic Segmentation:

The geographic segmentation is based on the weather conditions as enjoying ice cream is popular mostly all over the Pakistan but keeping in mind the market conditions and secondly to reduce the initial expenses (not to over load the business).

Nestle MARKETING MIX

Marketing Mix is defined as a set of controllable tactical marketing tools that firm blends to produce the response it wants in the target market. The marketing mix consists of every thing the firm can do to influence the demand for its products. The many possibilities can be collected into four groups of variables known as the four P’s that are as follows:

  1. Product
  2. Price
  3. Place
  4. Promotion
1.Product:

Product stands for goods and services that the company offers to target market.

Nestlé kit Kat is in four sizes including K.K Chunky, while Polo is in three sizes. The shape and the color of the Kit Kat and Polo are quite attractive for the customers. The labeling, packaging of the Kit Kat and Polo includes the Nestlé brand and logo. The packaging includes an expiry date and time along with a manufacture date. Second part of labeling includes the quantity of product in grams along with ingredients and contents of chocolates and candies.

Nestlé’ distribution is using the direct distribution channel to supply confectionery  products weekly to the retailers.

Producing a quality product, pricing it attractively and making it available for the target consumer is not the only problem companies need to solve. Modern era is the era of communication with customer, assuring customer satisfaction, demands for personal and non-personal communication with the target customer to build a relationship with them. In an area-storming activity, giving out products free, gift hampers, attracts new customers; kites depending on the season (for existing and potential customers) are given. The basic purpose is to explore the area that is being unexposed and to bring awareness in the people.

Weaknesses:

Dependent on the outside Milkmen

Packaging dependence
  • Another weakness of Nestle Milkpak Ltd. is that its total packaging depends upon Packages (Pvt.) limited.
Complex supply chain
  • Having complex supply chain management.
Advertisement
  • Company mostly advertises its milk products, advertisement of confectionary products is not so better

Opportunities:

Following are some opportunities for Nestle Pakistan Limited:

Can establish its own diary forms
  • Nestle can go for “Backward integration” and establish its own diary forms. Currently, Nestle is dependent on the outside Milkmen. Nestle should open its own diary forms because Nestle has strong financial position.
Potential to expand to smaller towns

Followings are the major threats for Nestle Milk Pakistan Ltd.

High Price
  • Purchasing power of people in Pakistan is decreasing day by day and prices of Nestle products are comparatively high. So in long run, Nestle may face problem if such trend continues.
Fierce competition
  • In some products Nestle is facing fierce competition. For example, in Milkpak Nestle is facing competition from Chaudhary Dairies Limited who has launched “Dairy Queen” at lower prices which has decreased market share of Milkpak. CDL has also launched “N’rish” milk powder at lower prices, it also has capability to decrease the market share of “NIDO”. So in long run, if Nestle do not respond to such competitors, they may create a lot of problems in other products also.
Instability of Government
  • Pakistan politics structure is very instable and is depressing economic activities and volatile business environment in the state. Such instable environment may influence the performance of all industries operating in state and Nestle may also be influenced from such trends of instability.
