Last year growth in sales
This year growth in sales
20%
-1%

·        As per the meeting with the Brand manager juices, we got an insight about customer attitude, competitors, product development etc.
·        Total contribution of orange juice is 20% to revenue in the juices category; however the overall market share of juices is 60%.

Customer Attitude


The main concern that the consumer’s of Nestle Orange juices have regarding the juice is related to the purity of the juice. The factor and the feature that they are most concerned with is that is the juice 100% pure and healthy?
The responses of prior studies reveal:
  • People actually think that fruit juices are not that great for them because of the fructose (fruit sugar). They think that when this frustose is processed its pure sugar gets TERRIBLE for their health. So the solution to them is that if they want to have a taste of orange they should try having an actual orange because the fiber in the pulp skin and roughage will slow the absorbtion of the fructose.
  • Another group of poeple suggests that instead of having packed juices one should go for natural ones with pulp and fibre etc. They think that, that is much better for their health. Only when one is in hurry one should go for processed juices.
  • Yet another really inflexible lot thinks that juices are made from concentrated stuff which as per them is not healthy at all.So they should always go for fresh jucies regarless of the fact that they are in a hurry or not. And if they cannot get hold of fresh juices, they should skip juices altogether.
  • As per the staff of Nestle, poeple are getting diverted towards imported drink which includes orange juices as well. As people are getting more health conscious, they are willing to spend more on their health and thus are willing to purchase imported juices regardless of the cost factor. People receive Nestle juices to be better than imported juices.

Exploratory Research

Nestle juices has provided us the basis of their research concern to identify reasons behind the decline in the sales of Nestle orange juice in particular.  Exploratory research will help us identify the research hypotheses.  Hence, it is of our benefit to start off the research process by conducting exploratory research. Currently we have three general hypotheses from which we have to establish priorities by exploring and developing relationships between different variables.
Under the exploratory research we will have to conduct
  1. Focus groups,
  2. In-depth interviews and
  3. Literature review.
Focus Group:
The purpose of conducting focus groups for our research project is to get an in depth insight of the problems associated with the decline in sales of Nestle orange juice. Their views and opinions about the taste preferences of the consumers will be exposed to us during the whole focus group sessions. Information regarding emerging competitors, changes in the marketing strategy, changes in buying preferences and other possible reasons which resulted in the decline in sales of nestle orange juice will be extracted out.
A total of three focus groups have been planned in order to exchange ideas regarding reasons of decline in sales of nestle orange juice.  The members of one focus group will be composed of
  1. Age group 20 - 25. 
  2. Age Group 26 - 31.
  3. Housewives/working women
We have selected two different focus groups with age brackets of 20-25 and 26-31 so as two know that whether the decline in sales is due to changes in taste preference with age. There may be a difference of attitude with maturity between someone who is 20 and someone who is of 30 years of age. The third focus group we will conduct is with women so as to know the household consumption.

Details Of First Focus Group

There will be 7-10 participants in first group, both male and female. The reason behind the selection of participants in the first focus group between the age group of 20-25 is because this group consumer includes young professionals, students and young home makers. The participants in their early twenties have a different approach towards life, as compared to participants in late twenties.
We have decided to carry out the focus groups so as to have a deep insight of the problem in different areas and in different age groups of people.

Details Of Second Focus Group

There will be 7-10 participants in second group. The individuals in this focus group have entered into their professional life and are married. They have different taste preferences as compared to individuals in their early twenties.

    Reason For Conducting Three Focus Groups:

    Where do you purchase juice from?

    Summary Of Focus Group Findings:

    The Focus group revealed some of the very useful and interesting findings which can help us in identifying the solution to the problem. The respondent’s top of mind brand has always been Nestle. Those who are moving away from Nestle orange juice are doing so because of its bitter taste, and also because as per the participants competitors’ are offering pure juice with a good taste and fair price. Consumers think that the price is also high. Also they doubt that although Nestle claims the juice to be 100% pure it is not the case in reality. Consumers believe that the juice has artificial flavor and preservatives added to it as a few very prominent ingredients. Also, they say Orange Juice tastes good when it is chilled, whereas most of the times Nestle juices that are available are not fully chilled.
    We also found out that those who do not take Nestle Orange Juice or those who have switched to another brand is because of increasing price of Nestle Orange Juice and its bitter taste. Also some of the respondents proved to be more patriotic and didn’t like taking juice of any Multinational firm. We also found out that those who take orange just simply love its bitter taste.
    The focus group conducted with the decision making units for the households that is the Housewives, we found out that they prefer buying Cartons of Nestle Orange Juice on monthly basis in large packing’s for their family.

    Limitations Of Findings:

    The focus group discussion tends to get biased as many respondents try to emphasize their opinion. Some of the respondents take clue from ideas of others and agree to what others say, without thinking over it.

    Analysis

    From the above cross tab between age and consumption of Nestle orange juice we can see that out of 178 there was only one respondent who did not respond to this question. Out of a total of 36 respondents who fall in the age bracket of 31 and above 47.2% of the respondents said that they consume Nestle Orange juice on a daily basis, 22.2% stated that consume Nestle Orange juice on a weekly basis and 22.2% stated that consume Nestle Orange juice occasionally.
    Out of 33 respondents who fall in the age bracket of 26-30, 39.4% stated that they consume Nestle orange juice on a daily basis, 21.2% said that they consume Nestle orange juice on weekly basis and 39.4% said that they consume Nestle orange juice on occasional basis.   
    Out of 63 respondents who fall in the age bracket of 21-25, 39.7% stated that they consume Nestle orange juice on a daily basis, 30.2% said that they consume Nestle orange juice on weekly basis and 19% said that they consume Nestle orange juice on occasional basis.

    Recommendation:

    Through the questionnaires we came to know People’s recommendations and suggestions regarding Nestle orange juice. The Company is diversifying its product range. In the first quarter of 2008 Nestle Juices added a new flavor to their product range. This diversification in product range has somewhat affected the sales of Nestle Orange juice.
    ·        A very important area for improvement is advertisement and promotional activities of Nestle Orange Juice. During our analysis we found out that most of the respondents were unaware about the new campaign of Nestle Orange juice named “Sunrise Campaign”. There should be vigorous advertisement of the brand with telecasting quality TV commercials that should cater the target audience
    ·        Company should do celebrity endorsement, to promote the brand to increase consumption and hence sales.
    ·        During our survey we found that most of the sales of 200 ml packaging of Nestle Orange juice are in schools and colleges. People complained that Nestle should increase the content of juice from 200ml to 250 ml because most of the other brands such as Shezan and county are available in 250 ml packing therefore Nestle should take into consideration about increasing the juice content from 200ml to 250ml.
    ·        Most of the people consuming Nestle Orange juice suggested that Nestle should think about adding add pulp content in their Nestle Orange juice.
    ·        Nestle should consider about decreasing the price of Nestle Orange juice in order to increase sales.

    Conclusion:

    After going through all the stages of marketing research process in order to know the reasons for declining sales of Nestle Orange juice we found that most of the people were quite satisfied with the taste of Nestle orange juice. They were still consuming Nestle Orange juice despite the bitter taste. To some extent the consumers were satisfied with the price of Nestle orange juice because according to them they perceive Nestle Juices to be quality and healthy juices. The analysis showed that people also have liking towards Nestle Orange juice.
    From the results of the survey we can conclude that the problem of decline in sales was not mostly due to change in consumer perceptions towards taste or other competing brands. It might be due to o change in internal Company polices or strategies.
