COCA COLA INTERNATIONAL HISTORY: Coca-Cola Enterprises, established in 1886, is a young company by the standards of the Coca-Cola system. Yet each of its franchises has a strong heritage in the traditions of Coca-Cola that is the foundation for this Company. The Coca-Cola Company traces its beginning to 1886, when an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John Pember ton , began to produce Coca-Cola syrup for sale in fountain drinks. However the bottling business began in 1899 when two Chattanooga businessmen, Benjamin F. Th omas and Joseph B. Whitehead , secured the exclusive rights to bottle and sell C oca-Cola for most of the United States from The Coca-Cola Company. The Coca-Cola bottling system continued to operate as independent, local businesses until the early 1980s when bottling franchises began to consolidate. In 1986, The Coca-Co la Company merged some of its companyowned operations with two large ownership g roups that 9

were for sale, the John T. Lupton franchises and BCI Holding Corporation s bottl ing holdings, to form CocaCola Enterprises Inc. The Company offered its stock to the public on November 21, 1986, at a split-adjusted price of $5.50 a share. On an annual basis, total unit case sales were 880,000 in 1986. In December 1991, a merger between Coca-Cola Enterprises Company, and the Johnston helping Coca-Co la accelerate Bottling bottler Group, Inc. (Johnston) created a larger, stronger again consolidation. As part of the merger, the senior management team of Johns ton assumed responsibility for managing the Company, and began a dramatic, succe ssful restructuring in 1992.Unit case sales had climbed to 1.4 billion, and tota l revenues were $5 billion The Coca-Cola Company is the worlds largest beverage c ompany. They operate in more than 200 countries & markets more than 2800 beverag e products. Headquartered at Atlanta, Georgia, they employ approximately 90500 10

employees all over the world. It is often referred to simply as Coke or (in Euro pean and American countries) as Cola or Pop. 11

MANAGEMENT: The hierarchy of Coca Cola Company is as follows. Chairman Board of governors Vice Chairman and chief operating officer Executive Vice Presidents Senior Vice Presidents Vice Presidents 12

MARKET SHARE: SHARE Being the biggest company in the soft drink industry, Coca Cola enjoys the large st market share. This company controls about 59% of the world market. GLOBAL MARKET SHARE: The following table can show the worldwide operating segments. (Table) Unit case growth 10 year compound annual growth Compan y Industry 5-year compound annual growth Compan y Industry 2001 annual growth Compan y Industry Nonalcoholic drink 2002 Company share All commercial Beverages 2002 Compan y share Compan y per capita Income 6% 5% 5% 5% 4% 4% 18% 9% 70 This shows that the market of the company is geographically vast and it is contr olling it with great success. In 2002, the company grew their carbonated soft-dr ink business by nearly 250 million unit cases and generated record volumes. Beca use carbonated soft drinks are the largest growth segment within the nonalcoholi c ready-to-drink beverage category measured by volume, that is why they are focu sing more on this and they are continually increasing the pace because they know that accelerating this pace is crucial to their future success. Thus they are i ncreasing their market 13

day by day. The operation income earned by Coca Cola Company can be illustrated by the following pie chart. (Figure) This strategy has worked a lot and it has helped them to become the Worlds leadin g Soft Drink Company. The global unit sale of the Coca Cola Company is increasin g from the last ten years. The data of the global unit sale of the Coca Cola Com pany can be represented by following chart. (Figure) 12 10 8 6 4 2 0 1971 1981 1991 2002 unit sale in billions So there is positive growth in the market of the Coca Cola Company. There is a w orldwide volume increase by 4% with strong international growth of 5%. This is o nly due to the innovative marketing programmers, which has deepened the 14

relationship of the customers and Coca Cola. The financial health and success of their bottling partners is a critical component of The Coca-Cola Company s abil ity to build and deliver leading brands. 15

In 2002, the company had worked with their bottlers to turn good intentions into reality by improving the system economics. The results in 2002 reflect this ste adily improving and mutually constructive relationship between the Company and t heir bottling partners. The main reason behind this relationship is to continue realizing shared opportunities for growth, with closer coordination of operation s including customer relationships, logistics and production. 16

EXTERNAL MARKETING ENVIRONMENT (PEST ANALYSIS) Political Analysis for Coca-Cola Non-alcoholic beverages fall within the food ca tegory under the FDA. The government plays a role within the operation of manufa cturing these products in terms of regulations. There are potential fines set by the government on companies if they do not meet a standard of laws. The followi ng are some of the factors that could cause CocaCola company s actual results to differ materially from the expected results described in their underlying compa ny s forward statement: Changes in laws and regulations, including changes in acc ounting standards, taxation requirements, (including tax rate changes, new tax l aws and revised tax law interpretations) and environmental laws in domestic or f oreign jurisdictions. Changes in the non-alcoholic business environment. These i nclude, without limitation, competitive product and pricing pressures and their ability to gain or maintain share of sales in the global market as a result of a ction by competitors. Political conditions, especially in international markets, including civil unrest, government changes and 17

restrictions on the ability to transfer capital across borders. Political struct ure and legal considerations also have impinged on Coco-Cola Companys strategies. Governments of some Arab nations boycotted Coca-Colas products due to a politica l dispute and discontented with the company for maintaining distributors in Isra el. Economical Analysis Being flexible and willing to change to satisfy consumers nee ds, has enabled Coca-Cola to exploit the economies of scale that was gained by i ts global marketing and at the same time making its products appeal to local tas te, which these have earned the company an enormous profits quarterly. As Coca-C ola has expanded over the decades or even nearly a century, the company has bene fited from the various cultural insights and perspectives of the societies in wh ich business is done. No doubt of the remarkable experience it has, it is still very committed to local markets, 18

to paying attention to what people from different cultures and backgrounds like to drink, and where and how they like to drink it, to remain competitive and to develop more new drinks to satisfy its markets. Now, the estimated brand equity of Coca-Cola is $84billion, market share of more than 50 percent in beverage industry globally and about 70 percent of its incom e comes from countries outside United States. Every 10 seconds, 126,000 people i n the whole world, choose to reach out for one of The Coca-Cola Company brands, and it is the companys mission to make that choice exciting and satisfying, every single time. Previously the U.S. economy was strong and nearly every part of it was growing and doing well. However, things changed. Before the attacks on Sept ember 11, 2001, the United States was starting to see the economy recover slight ly and it is only just recently that they achieved the economic levels. Consumer s are now resuming their normal habits, going to the malls, car shopping, and ea ting out at restaurants. However, many are still handling their money cautiously . They believe that with lower inflation still to come, consumers will recover t heir confidence over the next year. As researching for new products would cost l ess the CocaCola Company will sell its products for less and the people will spe nd as they would get cheap products from Coca-cola. 19

Social Analysis for Coca-Cola Foreign environment factors have influenced the Co caColas strategies in international marketing. Culture has a tremendous effect on peoples preferences and perception. Language is one of the aspects of culture th at marketers must take care of, in term of translating product name, slogans and promotional messages so as not to convey the wrong meaning. Coca-Cola did not l ook much into this aspect when entering into the markets of countries like China and Taiwan as the literal translation of Coca-Cola in Chinese characters mean, b ite the wax tadpole. Changes are necessary in international marketing for consume rs products, as it is important that the products suit ones taste, preferences and fulfill ones needs. Coca-Cola has continued changing, improving and developing n ew drinks to appeal to local tastes. After discovering that Coke did not appeal as much to Japanese consumers, Coca-Cola developed over 30 new drinks for the Ja panese market, which inclusive of Asian tea, English tea, coffee and fermented-m ilk drink. In China, Coca-Cola has also begun the similar strategy of introducin g beverages developed for the taste buds of local market. It launched a fruit ju ice drink called Tian Yu Di (Heaven and Earth) specifically for the Chinese mark et with planning of introducing the market with a Chinese iced tea and soy milk drink. 20

Many U.S. citizens are practicing healthier lifestyles. This has affected the no n-alcoholic beverage industry in that many are switching to bottled water and di et colas instead of beer and other alcoholic beverages. Also, time management ha s increased and is at approximately 43% of all households. The need for bottled water and other more convenient and healthy products are in important in the ave rage day-to-day life. Consumers from the ages of 37 to 55 are also increasingly concerned with nutrition. There is a large population of the age range known as the baby boomers. Since many are reaching an older age in life they are becoming more concerned with increasing their longevity. This will continue to affect th e non-alcoholic beverage industry by increasing the demand overall and in the he althier beverages. 21

Technological Analysis for Coca-Cola Some factors that cause company s actual re sults to differ materially from the expected results are as follows: The effecti veness of company s advertising, marketing and promotional programs. The new tec hnology of internet and television which use special effects for advertising thr ough media. They make some products look attractive. This helps in selling of th e products. This advertising makes the product attractive. This technology is be ing used in media to sell their products. Introduction of cans and plastic bottl es have increased sales for Coca-Cola as these are easier to carry and you can b in them once they are used. As the technology is getting advanced there has been introduction of new machineries all the time. Due to introduction of this machi neries the production of the Coca-Cola company has increased tremendously then i t was few years ago Coca-Cola has six factories in Britain which use the most st ate-of the-art drinks technology to ensure top product quality and speedy delive ry. Europe s largest soft drinks factory was opened by CCE in Wakefield, Yorkshi re in 1990. The Wakefield factory has the technology to produce cans of Coca-Col a faster than bullets from a machine gun 22

MARKETING MIX OF COCA-COLA Firstly, we will look at how Coca-Cola has used their marketing mix. The marketi ng mix is divided up into 4 parts; product, price, promotions and place. Product : The product (Coca-Cola soft drink) includes not just the liquid inside but als o the packaging. On the productservice continuum we see that a soft drink provid es little service, apart from the convenience. Soft drinks satisfy the need of t hirst. However, people are always different, some want more and others want less . Therefore Coca-Cola has made allowances for that by providing many sizes. We a lso have particular tastes, and again they have provided several options. So, al though thirst is what is needed to be satisfied and that is the core benefit, we are receiving other benefits in the taste and size. Coca-Cola has developed sev eral different flavours and sizes as mentioned above, but also several brands su ch as Sprite, Lift, Fanta and Diet Coke which increase the product line length, thus making full use of the market to maximize sales. The product is convenient, that is - bought frequently, immediately, and with a minimum of comparison and buying effort.The appearance of the product is eye catching with the bright red colour. It has a uniquely 38 1.

designed bottle shape that fits in your hand better, and creates a nicer & more futuristic look. The quality of the soft drink is needed to be regularly high. S ealed caps ensure that none of the "fizz" is lost. The bottles are light, with f lexible packaging, so they won t crack or leak, and are not too heavy to casuall y walk around with. The cans are also light and safe. The product range of CocaCola includes: Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola classic, caffeine free Coca caffeine free diet Coke, diet Coke with lemon Vanilla Coke, diet Vanilla Coke, C herry Coke, diet Cherry Coke, Fanta brand soft drinks, Sprite, diet Sprite Sprit e Remix 39

Product Lifecycle of Coke: Product life cycle has four phases 1. Introduction 2. Growth 3. Maturity 4. Decl ine. The markets where Coke is a dominant player are United States of America, E urope and Asia, Africa. There is a vast difference in terms of above given phase s for example, in U.S.A & Europe it has reached maturity stage where it cant expa nd its market more but if we consider Asia, it is still in the growth phase. Coc a-Cola is currently going through the maturity stage in Western countires. This maturity stage lasts longer than all other stages. Management has to pay special attention to products during this stage of the product life-cycle. During the m aturity stage, products usually go through a slowdown in sales growth. According to Coca-Cola s 2001 annual report, sales have increased by 1.02% compared to la st year. This percentage has no comparison to the high level of growth Coca-Cola enjoyed during its growth stage. To add a little variation Coca-Cola took the C oca-Cola Classic and added variations to it, including Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke and Diet Coke. Also Coca-Cola went from 6-oz. glass bottles to 8-oz. cans to pl astic liter bottles, all helping increase consumption. COCA-COLA 41

2. Price: Like any company who has successfully endured a century of existence, Coca- Cola has had to remain tremendously fluent with their pricing strategy. Th ey have had the privilege of a worthy competitor constantly driving them to be s marter, faster, and better. A quote from Pepsi Co s CEO "The more successful the y are, the sharper we have to be. If the Coca-Cola Company didn t exist, we d pr ay for someone to invent them." states it simply. The relationship between CocaCola & Pepsi is a healthy one that each corporation has learned to appreciate. T hroughout the years Coca-Cola has made many 42

pricing decisions but one might say that their ultimate goal has always been to maximize shareholder value. As cola consumption has decreased in the US colas ha ve come to realize the untapped international market. In 2003 both Coke and Peps i had a solid presence in India and had each introduced a 300mL bottle. In order to grab market share Pepsi began to drop prices (even with summer approaching, which was contrary to policy in America). Shortly thereafter, Coca-Cola decided to drop their prices slightly, but focused on the reduced price point of their 2 00mL container. Coca- Cola planned to use the lower price point to penetrate new cities that were especially price sensitive. The carbonated soft drink market i n India is nearly 37% of the total beverage market there. This low price strateg y was not unfamiliar to Coca-Cola. Both Coke & Pepsi utilized a low price strate gy in the early 1990s. After annihilating the low price store brands, Coke chose to reposition itself as a "Premium" brand and then raise prices. Coca-Cola prod ucts would appear, on the shelf, to have the most expensive range of soft drinks common to supermarkets, at almost double the cost of no name brands. This can b e for several reasons apart from just to cover the extra costs of promotions, fo r which no name brands do without. It creates consumer perceptions and values. W hen people buy Coca-Cola they are not just buying the beverage but also the imag e that goes with it, therefore to have the price higher reiterates the fact that the product is of a better quality 43

than the rest and that the consumer is not cheap. This is known as value-based p ricing and is used by many other industries in attracting consumers. In India, t he average income of a rural worker is Rs.500 a month. Coca Cola launched a 200 ml bottle for just Rs.5, an affordable amount on the pockets of the rural audien ce. 3. Place: Coca-Cola entered foreign markets in various ways. The most common mod es of entry are direct exporting, licensing and franchising. Besides beverages a nd their special syrups, Coca-Cola also directly exports its merchandise to over seas distributors and companies. Other than exporting, the company markets inter nationally by licensing bottlers around the world and supplying them with the sy rup needed to produce the product. There are different types of franchising. The type that is used by Coca-Cola Company is manufacturersponsored wholesaler fran chise system. It is very 44

comparable to licensing but the only difference is that the finished products ar e sold to the retailers in local market. Coca Cola has managed their companys mar keting and sales strategy within channels. Have you ever considered the signific ance of the Coke vending machine to the success and profitability of the Coca Co la company? This channel is direct to consumer and vending machines often have l ittle to no competition and no trade or price promotions. The Coke Company opera tes three primary delivery systems for its business channels: Bulk delivery for the channels of large Supermarkets, Mass Merchandisers and Club stores; For smal ler channels Coke does advanced sale delivery for convenience stores, drug store s, small supermarkets and on-premise fountain accounts. Full service delivery fo r its full service vending customers. Key Channel Listing Supermarkets Convenien ce Stores Fast Food Petroleum Retailers Chain Drug Stores 45

Hotels/Motels/Resorts Mass Merchandisers U.S. DOD Military Resale retail command s: AAFES, NAVRESSO and DECA Vending In 2006, the Company began changing its delivery method for its route delivery s ystem. Historically, the Company loaded its trucks at a warehouse with products the route delivery employee would deliver. The delivery employee was responsible for pulling the required products off a side load truck at each customer locati on to fill the customer s order. Coke began using a new CooLift delivery system i n 2006 in a portion of the Company s territory which involves pre-building order s in the warehouse on a small pallet the delivery employee can roll off a truck directly into the customer s location. The CooLift delivery system involves the u se of a rear loading truck rather than a conventional side loading truck. Coke w ill continue to rollout this program over the next several years since they expe ct such significant savings and more efficient deliverys. This is a huge investm ent for Coke. The company works through independent bottlers of Coke. They work in coordination with the Coke company which produces the secret formula concent rate and ships to the distributors and bottlers for final processing and packag ing prior to shipment to the stores. 46

Coca-Cola floods all possible retailing stores in satisfying the third part, pla ce. In supermarkets and convenient stores, Coca-Cola products are always easy to identify, and usually make up the greater proportion of options to buy. This in creases their market exposure through effective use of the retailers. For a FMCG it is important that they can be found and purchased easily. With many automati c Can machines located in many sports stadiums and shopping malls, you don t eve n need to go to a store to buy a drink. This greatly enhances the speed of purch ase. The company produces concentrate, which is then sold to various licensed Co ca-Cola bottlers throughout the world. The bottlers, who hold territorially excl usive contracts with the company, produce finished product in cans and bottles f rom the concentrate in combination with filtered water and sweeteners. The bottl ers then sell, distribute and merchandise Coca-Cola in cans and bottles to retai l stores and vending machines. Such bottlers include Coca-Cola Enterprises, whic h is the largest single Coca-Cola bottler in North America and Western Europe an d food service distributors. 47

The Coca-Cola Company only produces a syrup concentrate, which it sells to vario us bottlers throughout the world who hold Coca-Cola franchises for one or more g eographical areas. The bottlers produce the final drink by mixing the syrup with filtered water and sugar (or artificial sweeteners) and then carbonate it befor e filling it into cans and bottles, which the bottlers then sell and distribute to retail stores, vending machines, restaurants and food service distributors. T he Coca-Cola Company owns minority shares in some of its largest franchises, lik e Coca-Cola Enterprises, Coca-Cola Amatil, Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company ( CCHBC) and Coca-Cola FEMSA, but fully independent bottlers produce almost half o f the volume sold in the world. Since independent bottlers add sugar and sweeten ers, the sweetness of the drink differs in various parts of the world, to cater for local tastes. 48

STRATEGIC PLANNING In the year 2002, the company had a great success, as the strategy worked which resulted in making Coca Cola Company the worlds leading company. In 2001, company accomplished the crust of its strategy as Worldwide volume increased by 4 percen t with strong international growth of 5 percent and clear signs that our North A merican business is growing solidly and predictable.

The c ompany has generated free cash flow of $3.1 billion, up from $2.8 billion in 200 0, a clear indication of its underlying financial strength. The strategy for the future of the company is very straightforward. The marketing strategy for the y ear 2002 is as follows, 49

Grow system profitabilit y and capability together with our bottling partners. Serve customers with creat ivity and consistency to generate growth across all channels.

PROMISE OF COKE The basic proposition of our business is simple, solid and timeless. When we bri ng refreshment, value, joy and fun to our stakeholders, then we successfully nur ture and protect our brands, particularly Coca-Cola. That is the key to fulfilli ng our ultimate obligation to provide consistently attractive returns to the own ers of our business. TARGET MARKET Cokes commercials basically based on young generations, So, the young generation is the target market of Coke because they want to represent Coke with the youth and energy but they also consider about the old people they take then as a co-ta rget market. MAJOR SEGMENTS Major segments are basically those people who take this drink daily and those ar eas where the demands is higher then the other areas. There are so many people w ho take this drink daily and those people who take weekly and those who take les s often are always there as well. So, their basic segments are those people who take this drink regularly. 55

FACTORS EFFECTING SALES There are so many factors, which affects the sale of coke. Here we are discussin g three major factors which effects coke. Per capita income Competitors Weather Per Capita Income First we will discuss about Per capita income. This is major factor that affects the sale of this soft drink. Because which every passing year budgets are becomi ng very strict and tight in order to purchase things. So the disposable incomes of the people are coming down. They spend heavily on rents, utilities, and educa tion and basic necessities and after that when they get extra money they think a bout this soft drink .So the decreasing per capita income effects badly in selli ng and production of this soft drink. 56

And to get through with this difficulty there is need to increase the level of p er capita income of Pakistan because it is much lesser than the rest of the coun tries. Competitors Cokes major competitor is PEPSI and there is no hesitation to say this because ever y one knows that and all the other cold drinks and water, coffee, tea are the co mpetitors. Weather Weather is the third major factor in effecting the Cokes selling. This is underde veloped market so the cokes consumption in summers is 60% and in winters is 40%.

MAJOR CUSTOMERS NEED First of all the majority dont care that what they are going to have. In other wo rds, they dont care before drinking that whether it is Pepsi or coke. They dont actua ly differentiate between these two brands in order to their tastes. Consumers ba sically drink what they get. They believe on WHAT COLD THEY SOLD Consumers availabi lity in brands is basically works like: Push availability 57

Pull consumers demand. For this reason Coca-Cola have provided their coolers and freezers in the market. They have maximum number of coolers and freezers in the market. They provide this infrastructure free of cost just to provide child coke to their customer, which they want to be purchase. Their salesman and mechanics regularly visit all the shops where coke has its infrastructure to check that e ither it is in proper condition or not, if not then they immediately change or r epair it. 58

MAJOR COMPETITORS Consumers firstly decide that they are going to have a soft drink. Then they com pete brands with each other. Like they compete Coke with Pepsi and Sprite with 7 up and team .So the major competitor of Coke is Pepsi. When they motivate to any other brand or on Coke its in instinct basically that based on messages derive c ertain feelings. But Coca Cola thinks in a different way, they believe that RC C ola, new coming AMRAT Cola, and all juices, even they take water and tea as thei r competitors. STRATEGIES OF QUALITY After Micro and macro analysis Brand coke is primarily role 1. Enhance competition moments 2. When people watch cricket 3. Through commercialization 4. Fun time T hough these strategies there could be better understanding and better connection with the public. These are the key consumption. THREATS FROM COMPETITORS Threats are well planned. Price is the major threat. When price goes certain bey ond the exact price whether come down or go higher its effects the consumption o f soft drink. Because when the price go higher people go for the substitute of co ke i.e. Pepsi. 59

And when price goes down they think that there is must be some thing wrong in it . In short it all depends on customers perception. TARGETS THAT WOULD LIKE TO ATTAIN Every organization runs on the bases of profit maximization so Coke is also look ing for a high profit margin. There are three major ways of making money Over ni ght profit Windfall profit Ethical and un-ethical ways 60

Over Night Profits They could be over night profit that is for the number 1 brand for the year. This cou ld be got my increasing sales volume Windfall Profit Can be windfall profit. The y are the extras profit. When the consumption the consumption is on boom. So, th ere is different kind of profits. Ethical And Unethical Ways Profit can also get through ethical and unethical ways. They believe on this quo te Every thing is fare in love and war. Some profits stays for some time like over night profits and some just come and go like wind fall profits. And they can also get profit through different approaches. EXPANDING TARGET MARKET In last 2 years Coke has come back in aggressive manner. Consumer has choice Att ractive brand name Brand differentiating 61

Consumer Has Got Choice Now the consumer has got choice. Because now they know the name of another big b rand, though coke is the 2nd best name but it can get a better position after so me time Attractive Brand Name Now the consumers know the Name of Coke, because Coke is the name, which is the most popular after the word ok. So people can better differentiate brands with eac h other. Brand Differentiation Now different companies have got different brand names. So , people can distinguish between brands. Two major brands coke and Pepsi also have b rand names. Coca Colas Brand Coca cola is US brand. Because they believe in the togetherness, being people toge ther and friends are being together. Coca Cola strongly believes that Pakistani temperament is US not ME Pepsis Brand Pepsis brand is basically is basically ME branded. They use the temperament of ME. In contrast to Coke they believe on individual struggle. 62

THREATS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRICE Opportunities If Coke is considered a luxury product. Then there is the tax rate system 15% sales tax 20% - excise duty 27% - goes to government 03% - In making Budget Afte r paying all these taxes coke has to pay electricity charges. We have to spend o n distributions. After paying all these expenses Cokes margin squeezed and consum ers have to pay for increasing tariffs. These are the opportunities through whic h we can increase the price and can get profits. Threats There are much more threats in increasing prices. Because same problem of substi tute. If Coke increase the price lets say 1 rupee. Then people definitely wont go for coke. They have the best substitute of Coke that is Pepsi. So these are the threats in increasing prices. Coke will lose the margin of its profit and can f ace loss. 63

STRATEGIES OF GETTING GOALS I.E. HIGH PROFITS To increase the price is the least thing, which Coke can adopt. There are so man y ways through which Coke can increase the profits. Some major ways are as follo ws. Volume can be increased Interest level of consumers To take part in energeti c festivals How to increase the volume of consumers? Coke can increase the volume by expanding the industry of coke. Through advertis ements, offering different interesting things to attract people towards this pro duct. How to increase the interest level of consumers? Coke is increasing the interest level of consumers by offering different flavors . For example Coke is increasing the number of flavors in Fanta, this is one of th e product of coke. Through offering different flavors Coke can increase the Leve l of consumers and through this profits can be gained. How to take part in energetic festivals? Coke is already taking part in the festival like Basant since last 3 years. Coke o ffers different attractive things in their 64

festival and through this Coke gained high profit and consumption of coke increa sed on these occasions. And this year in this year 2002 people were anxiously wa iting that what interesting thing coke is going to offer. MARKETING STRATEGY Our local marketing strategy enables Coke to listen to all the voices around the world asking for beverages that span the entire spectrum of tastes and occasion s.

Fanta & Sprite are sure to enjoy considerable success in Pakistan. Diet Coke After the acquisition of the individual local franchise bottling facilities in 1 996, the company has successfully launched its first new product, diet coke, for the first time in almost 3 years. The was linked with three fashion shows as Di et Coke is related to fashion & fitness, but the major hit was thematic fashion shows in restaurants, which are the key accounts of the company as this has been never done before in Pakistan. 81

SWOT ANALYSIS Strengths: Coca-Cola has been a complex part of American culture for over a cent ury. The product s image is loaded with over-romanticizing, and this is an image many people have taken deeply to heart. The Coca-Cola image is displayed on T-s hirts, hats, and collectible memorabilia. This extremely recognizable branding i s one of CocaCola s greatest strengths. Additionally, Coca-Cola s bottling syste m is one of their greatest strengths. It allows them to conduct business on a gl obal scale while at the same time maintain a local approach. The bottling compan ies are locally owned and operated by independent business people who are author ized to sell products of the Coca-Cola Company. Because Coke does not have outri ght ownership of its bottling network, its main source of revenue is the sale of concentrate to its bottlers. A company like Coca-Cola has much internal and ext ernal strength, but when launching a product of this sort, they begin to run int o many internal and external weaknesses as well. As far as internal strengths go , Coca-Cola itself is a strong company to say the least. Not only are they a $23 billion company, but in 200 nations, Coke sells about 400 drink brands, includi ng four of the top five sellers right now. They own 36% of 82

the largest Coke bottler in the world, Coca-Cola Enterprises, which staffs facil ities all over the world. Although Coke has never produced an organic product, t hey do own Odwalla, which is a natural juice company. This product would not be marketed as an Odwalla brand, but Odwalla s knowledge of natural juice making wi ll be a great strength for Coca-Cola. Organic products are on the rise, with 70% of Americans having purchased something organic at least once. While organics a re becoming more and more popular, there still are not many well-known organic c ompanies; therefore, Coca-Cola will not have much competition. Perhaps one of th eir biggest strengths is the brand loyalty their customers have. When this produ ct is launched, avid Coke drinkers will choose this organic fruit juice or soda over any other competitor simply because it s a Coca-Cola product and they trust it. 83

Weaknesses: Although domestic businesses as well as many international markets a re thriving, Coca-Cola has recently reported some "declines in unit case volumes in Indonesia and Thailand due to reduced consumer purchasing power." According to an article in Fortune magazine, "In Japan, unit case sales fell 3% in the sec ond quarter because while Japan generates around 5% of worldwide volume, it cont ributes three times as much to profits. Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Japan account for about 35% of Coke s volume and none of these markets are performing to expectation. Coca-Cola on the other side has effects on the teeth s which is an issue for health care. It also has got sugar by which continuous drinking of Coca-Cola may cause health problems. Being addicted to Coca-Cola also is a heal th problem, because drinking of Coca-Cola daily has an effect on your body after few years. Opportunities: Brand recognition is the significant factor affecting Coke s competitive position. Coca-Cola s brand name is known well throughout 94 % of the world today. Packaging changes have also affected sales and industry po sitioning, but in general, the public has tended not to be affected by new produ cts. Coca-Cola s bottling system also allows the company to take advantage of in finite growth opportunities around the 84

world. This strategy gives Coke the opportunity to service a large geographic, d iverse, area. Threats: Currently, the threat of new viable competitors in the ca rbonated soft drink industry is not very substantial. The threat of substitutes, however, is a very real threat. The soft drink industry is very strong, but con sumers are not necessarily married to it. Possible substitutes that continuously put pressure on both Pepsi and Coke include tea, coffee, juices, milk, and hot chocolate. Even though Coca-Cola and Pepsi control nearly 40% of the entire beve rage market, the changing healthconsciousness of the market could have a serious affect. Of course, both Coke and Pepsi have already diversified into these mark ets, allowing them to have further significant market shares and offset any loss es incurred due to fluctuations in the market. Consumer buying power also repres ents a key threat in the industry. The rivalry between Pepsi and Coke has produc ed a very slow moving industry in which management must continuously respond to the changing attitudes and demands of their consumers or face losing market shar e to the competition. Furthermore, consumers can easily switch to other beverage s with little cost or consequence 85

CONCLUSION After thorough research, we come to the conclusion that the marketing strategy o f Coca Cola is working for them and the product is gaining popularity among yout h day by day. 86

RECOMMENDATIONS After completing our project we have concluded some recommendation for the coca cola company, which are following. Coca Cola Company should try to emphasis more on providing their infrastructure in the market to facilitate their customers. According to the survey, conducted by the international firm Pakistani people li ke little bit sweeter cola drink. So for this coca cola company should produce t heir product according to the local demand. Marketing team should try to increas e the availability of Coke in rural areas. They should also focus the old people . Now young generation has a trend to drink a coke 2 regular bottles at same tim e, so providing more 87

satisfaction to them company should introduce liter disposable bottle. PEST ANALYSIS OF COCA-COLA There are four variables, which we will discuss in our report, they are: POLITICAL VARIABLES Political variables Effects of government regulations & deregulations Effect of environmental protection laws if any Import and export regulations Effect of pol itical conditions in certain countries of Coke Any effect of election, military take over, Revolution at Coke Strongly Effected ++ Some what Effected + No Effec t + NE Some what Effected Strongly Effected YES NE NE YES Conclusion Of Political Analysis: As far as the above table is concerned it could be seen that there are very litt le chances of political variables to effect the cokes production and selling behavi or. In the political variables most of the things are related to Governmental acti vities. So, they dont leave any good or bad impact in the Industry of coke. 88

And there are some exceptional things like: environmental protection laws they som e what effect the industry of Coke. From last two years Government is going to b e really very much conscious about the environment. But after making the adjustm ents in plants and applying the proper way of wastage the chances of being affec ted by the protection laws are going to be diminished. So it impact good for the C okes reputation. And the second thing in political variables which effects Coke i s elections & military take over Because in the days of elections and marshal laws condition the countries production in any field is declined. So it affects sligh tly the revolution of Coke. So political conditions are over all leave neutral eff ects on cokes industry. ECONOMICAL VARIABLES Economical Variables Do soaring interest rates make business task any harder Any effect due to inflation Anything done to reduce unemployment Any effect of 11th September 2001, incident at Coke in Pakistan Strongly Effected ++ Some what Eff ected + No Effect + Some what Effected Strongly Effected YES YES YES NE 89

Conclusion Of Economical Analysis It could be seen that economical variables highly affects the Cokes resolution. Eco nomic factors are those actors who effect the production of any industry. So, Co ke is not the out of question. If the economic conditions of the country is not that strong and Coke increases its Price in this situation. Then it would impact highly negative. And inflation is also not a good position for any countrys prod uction point of view. It also impacts highly negative in the Cokes production. And as a country concerned like Pakistan where the unemployment rate is very much high. The Coca Cola system in Pakistan employs 1,800 people. During the last 2 y ears, the CocaCola system in Pakistan has involved over $130 million (U.S). When we draw the conclusion of economic variables. Then we come to know that if econom ic variables are in the favorable position of country then they impact good othe r wise the impact highly bad. SOCIAL VARIABLES Social variables Effects of advertisement of Coke on Public popularity Strongly Effected ++ YES Some what Effected + No Effect + Some what Effected Strongly Eff ected 90

How will do Cokes contribution affect charity organizations of Pakistan Has risin g consciousness of natural resources in people effected your save environment act ivities.

All over the world, we are involved in innovative progr ams that give hard working, Knowledge hungry students books, supplies, places to study and scholarships. From youth in Brazil to first generation scholars, educ ational programs in local communities are our priority. ENVIRONMENT A large part or our relationship with the world around us is our relationship wi th the physical world. While we have always sought to be sensitive to the enviro nment, we must use our significant resources and capabilities to provide active leadership on environmental issues, particularly those relevant to our business. We want the world we share to be clean and beautiful. We are always innovating to bring you different delicious beverages. This same spirit of innovation comes alive in our environment programs.

to preserving our environment, from use of more than $ 2 billion (U.S) a year in recycling content and suppliers, and environment Management initiatives, down t o very local neighborhood collection and beautification efforts.

The Coca Cola system in Pakistan operates through eight bottlers. Four of wh ich are majority owned by Coca Cola Beverages Pakistan Limited (CCBPL). COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: In 2000, when eastern Pakistan suffered its worst droughts, The Coca Cola system initiated a famine relief program to help victims and was the first private sec tor company to assist. The Coca Cola system in Pakistan initiated a voluntary Ha jj program that allows one employee from each plant, selected through a draw, to be sent on the Holy Pilgrimage to Mecca at the Companys expense. TECHNOLOGICAL VARIABLES Technological variables Have business innovations effectively promoted your busi ness Has the governments regulations ever hindered in importing technical equipme nt Does Coke help in Strongly Effected ++ YES Some what Effected + No Effect + S ome what Effected Strongly Effected YES YES 92

promoting paperless environment Conclusion Of Technological Analysis Of course business innovation leaves highly good impacts in the business of Coke. As coke use more advance technology in it s production process. It will resulted in increment of their production through out the country. As far as the governmental hindrances are concerned the impacts highly bad on cokes production. Ever year when budget in announced government taxes rates always sh oot up. This approach of government decreases the profit margin of Coke. As the coke helping in promoting paperless environment .it impacts good, because computer s are the basic need of any person now a days. And though its a big industry so i t is promoting the trend of paperless environment. And it is giving the way of o ther industries to come to new technologies and into a new world of business. Th rough computers coke can increase the efficiency of its business and can have up to date data about their productions.

Although Coke has been into controversies, people still prefer to stay loy al to the Brand with Coca Cola being termed as a more popular brand than Pepsi. Coca Cola products would appear, on the shelf, to have the most expensive range of soft drinks common to supermarkets, at almost double the cost of no name bran ds. This can be for several reasons apart from just to cover the extra costs of promotions, for which no name brands do without. When people buy Coca Cola they are not just buying the beverage but also the image that goes with it, therefore to have the price higher reiterates the fact that the product is of a better qu ality than the rest and that the consumer is not cheap. In supermarkets and conv enience stores Coca Cola has their own fridge which contains only their products . 102

So , there is no interection with customers of Hindustan C oca Cola Beveragws Private Limited. 104
