Kraft takeover of CadburyKraft acquired Cadbury during feb 2010. Biding- $ 19.1 billion
Cadbury-KraftKraft had till date operated in India through an import model and had been selling only one brand Tang powder drink here through distributors. A couple of years back, it sold off its powdered soft drink concentrate plant in Hyderabad since low volume offtake meant the plant was not commercially viable in the long term
Benefits of Takeover (Global)Kraft will displace Mars Inc as the worlds biggest candy maker, according to Euromonitor data. It will create a company with about $50 billion in annual sales, adding Cadburys Crme Eggs and Trident gum to Krafts Oreo cookies. Cadbury-Kraft jointly accounts for 60% of the global absolute retail value gain for the packaged food market over the same period.
Benefits of Takeover The joint Kraft/Cadbury entity has become the 2nd largest packaged food conglomerate in Latin America. In Asia-Pacific, the company now joins the ranks of the top 10 packaged food companies across the region, moving from 17th to ninth position in 2009.
In IndiaThe deal would give Kraft Cadburys distribution network for its beverages, cheese, dairy products and snacks in addition to Cadburys chocolates. India, the confectionery sales in local currency terms is expected to increase by an average of 14.8% annually through to 2014, is without doubt one of the highlights of Kraft's new emerging market opportunity.
Kraft activitiesKraft is planning strategies to establish its name in the market. The first step is strengthen Cadbury's current product portfolio. Assesment of the brands, categories and products resonate the best with Indian consumer. The challenge is to think not like leaders but like challengers. A key element of the challenger's strategy will be targeting the lower end consumers -- that means, for starters, lower price packs.
Kraft ActivitiesKraft Foods Inc. is seeking to raise the profile of Cadbury products in China. The U.S. food giant ramps up investments in developing markets, particularly the Asia-Pacific region (Indonesia, India, China, Australia, New Zealand, HongKong, Philippines) The top ten power brands finalised by kraft for its markets are: Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates, Halls lozenges and Trident gum, three Cadbury brands. They join Oreo cookies, Milka chocolate, Lacta chocolate, Jacobs coffee, Tang drink mix, Club Social/TUC crackers, Biskuat/Biscuits.
SuggestionsMaintain the same old recipe for chocolates. Host competitions at schools and other colleges and give free samples of cheese to gain good customer base. Could develop a new product altogether, infusing new blood. Kraft should take special care not in anyway to change the taste of Chocolate especially in the Europe market.
