EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In 1991 we opened our country to foreign brands. As per this liberalization policy many a foreign players ventured into our country finding it a lucrative large mass market. India’s market potential lures foreign companies.
Many international companies that ventured in after 1991 are tallying their profits and losses and wondering what the future holds for this market of 950 million people.
But India is a diverse country where different states have different consumption patterns and customs. Thus competition has become the key word in today’s scenario.
Till 1970’s and 80’s Maggie and Kissan were the major ketchup brands but after liberalization Heinz entered Indian market which offered tough competition. These major giants are also facing competition from many local players like Tops, Cremica and other local brands.

The expected market share could be achieved by a sound promotion policy and by the brand name of Nestle as the maggi noodles is already a well known product.

Nestle is a Swiss Company, whose link with India goes back to 1912, when it was well known as „Nestle AngloSwiss Condensed Milk Company (Export) Limited‟. Since then, Nestle has stood its ground firmly in in India, by setting its foundation as a well-known brand, offering solutions to customer‟s wants in different segments. The brand still commands an envious market share of more than 90 per cent and has successfully launched sauces, pastes, and soups.

The brand replaced favourite Indian desi snacks such as samosas and kachoris with a hot bowl of Maggi Noodles. Over the years, the success of the brand has been commendable, especially considering the fact that it had the addes task of creating the category as well. ‘Fast to Cook… Good to Eat Maggi 2-minute Noodles’ Maggi used the tagline of „fast to cook, good to eat‟ to woo the Indian audience in the early 1980s. Maggi understood the consumers‟ inertia and apathy to try new things. Indian consumers, at that time, were evincing interest in Chinese noodles and Maggi launched its noodles to take advantage of this craze (Das 2007). It offered convenience to the housewife and at the same time did not undermine her involvement with the kids (Sharma 2010). The......
