For a new product to be successful the business should take all the factors into account and care for innovative corporate culture. This is to ensure that all the staff in the organization is encouraged to do the best in their work. Cadbury takes innovation very seriously and it is a major part of Cadbury's strategy for success. ` There are many great ideas - many of them generated by chance. However, only few products make it through to the end of the process. The further a product goes through this process, the more expensive it becomes. As products progress, the company is making an increasing commitment in terms of resources. Once a product is developed, the launch marketing costs are significant; so a company must carry out extensive market research to ensure a product has the best chance of appealing to the market. Segmenting the market makes it easier to categorize groups of people with the same consumer requirements and desires. Branding and packaging The essential role of packaging has always been to protect and contain a product. In a competitive market, branding and packaging are significant and have become an important part of the product. Consumers directly identify products by the size, shape and colour of packaging. The marketing department give a product a distinctive look and decide on the package design. This will incorporate the brand name and will separate the product from competitors. This is known as a unique selling point The shape, size and colour are key factors when packaging a product to make the packaging eye-catching and unique. The packaging of Cadburys dairy milk is made of some shiny plastic and it is mainly like that. It has a zigzag edge on which would be called the top and bottom of the packaging, which makes it easier to tear open. It has the Cadbury's logo on the top left with the words "Dairy Milk" underneath. ...read more.

Another factor is how well competitors are performing Repositioning Cadbury Snack Review * Launched over 50 years ago the Snack brand was still popular but was not engaging consumers in a meaningful way. * Cadbury decided to reposition the brand to target young, hard-working professionals who used quick breaks to catch up with friends and relax during a long working day. * Snack was repositioned to appeal to this market to become their top-of-mind brand. * New modern packaging and an advertising campaign altered how the consumers perceive the Snack brand. * The Snack brand is now being extended to widen its consumer appeal and use (healthy cereal bars can replace breakfast and provide healthy snacks). * The brand is +5% to date in 2005 versus 2004 Cadburys Advertisments AIDA of the Advertisements ATTENTION - in Cadburys advertisements the attention is always grabbed by sound and colour effects. This grabs people attention to what is happening and makes them curious. INTEREST - Cadburys make people interest in the advert by showing the glasses of milk pouring into chocolate which will make them interested in the chocolate and the advert. DESIRE - this is the main and the hardest part of the adverts. At this point Cadburys main role is to make people go out and buy its products.
