The market share has been dropped 2% from 2002 to 2003. The reason for the problem cause is the increase of competitors' market shares. Competitors are expanding because of the launch new taste and new package products. Although the NZDF has launched new flavour yoghurts but the package of the yoghurt products have never been changed. The solution to the problem is launching a new package yoghurt product - Squeeze pack yoghurt. The new packaging of yoghurt products will give the company a competitive advantage. The company will gain benefit while the new convenient design of the new package benefits the customers. The objectives of this plan are: Achieve total yoghurt sales revenue of $155,085,500 in 2006, with represents a 10% increase per year with in next three years from 2004. Achieve total yoghurt package sales of 60,068,300 packs in 2006, with a average 5% increase per year with in next three years from 2004. ...read more.


They are getting less profit from those products on special but gaining more profit from the rest of products that is non-special. * Although the yoghurts' price is regular reduced by the supermarkets, the yoghurt average price per pack is still growing. The reasons are: the original price (non-special price) of yoghurt products are increasing; there are more new products being developing as mentioned before, and when new product are innovated, the price of it is more likely higher than the existing products. * It is a fact that grocery or snack food products are sensitive in pricing. When the price is dropped, customers are also being attracted in to store. Yoghurt is one of the grocery or snack food products, thus, it follow the rule of high price sensitivity. When the yoghurt products' price has been dropped more customers buy the products than before. Distribution * All of the New Zealand top supermarkets sell yoghurt products. This include: Foodtown, Pak n' save, Countdown, Woolworths, New World, 3 Guys (Personal Observation). * The yoghurt products are in an important position in the supermarkets. It is in the position that customers must go through to buy their essential food for living (See detail information in Appendix 2). The position of yoghurt products on the shelf follows the top brand is in the eye level, where they can get more sale therefore more market share, followed by less famous brands. (See detail information in Appendix 2) * The yoghurt brand that have most facing products are fresh n' fruity, followed by Meadow Fresh, Yoplait, SM Calci Yum and DE Winkel. More facing means more opportunities for shoppers to see and to buy, and therefore more market share can be earned. (See detail information in Appendix 2) * Under normal circumstances, the margin for grocery products is 10%. Thus the margin of yoghurt products should also be 10%. ...read more.
