- Key Accounts:
Key Accounts include big stores like Chase up, Ideal Mall and Latif Super store.
Task 3 SWOT Analysis was also completed during internship.
During the internship the SWOT analysis was completed on nestle. Neslte has many plus points which give it priority over other companies.
The name of Nestle is the one of the best example of its strength. The kind of image it is having in the mind of people is the greatest strength of it. Well, there are many strengths of Nestle in its product line. Fruita Vitals is well reputed and well known brand of nestle. It is a nector having flavors Chaunsa, Red Grapes, Pineapple, Peach, Guava, Kinnow and some other flavors are recently added as well. There is no other competitor of such product of Nestle regarding the quality and taste. Another strength of Nestle is mango fruit drink Nestle Nesfruita which provides a large numbers of sales to the company. In dairy portion Nestle Everyday liquid is known as tea whitener. Marketing strategies of Nestle are also the strengths for nestle.
The target market of Nestle milk pak is upper middle class and higher class and it is not targeting the lower middle class or lower class. Lower middle class cannot afford its premium prices and as we all know that most of the population in Pakistan belongs to the lower middle class. Because of that is not generating the sales which are expected from it. Another weakness of nestle is that it is not properly advertising milk pak. Other competitors are focusing on the advertisement through proper channel while Nestle keeps milk pak at last in advertising and it is causing loss in market share of milk pak. In 2017 the market share of Milk Pak was 52% while all other brands were just 42% of the whole market share while in 2018 the market share of Milk Pak was reduced to 48% and that is alarming for nestle.
There are multiple opportunities for nestle. It can increase the sales of yogurt through providing quality and proper advertisements. Nestle can also increase the sales of Milk Pak through proper advertisement. Nestle can increase the sales through credit facility. As much as you facilitate your customer, your sales increase. Coffee brands of Nestle are also the opportunities for Nestle. Company can develop the taste of coffee among masses through proper working and there are no well known competitors in coffee products for the Nestle.
The biggest threat for the Nestle is the decreasing market share of Milk Pak as the company is costing a large amount on production of Milk Pak and if it is not properly controlled the company can suffer a huge loss because of not just advertising properly. Current economical situation is also a threat for the company. Pakistan’s economical crises are increasing day by day and it can cause a great loss for the company.
