a company known as Nestle with headquarters based in Swiss town of Vevey –
where it started in the beginning

. Nestlé’s first
customer was a premature infant who was unable to tolerate his mother’s milk as

of cow’s milk, wheat flour and sugar

6.  Implementation, control and contingency plan

Implementation
and control

Having developed a clear strategy, it is
important to implement it. Nestlé will look to ensure that going forward all
its products retain a superior taste profile while providing enhanced
nutritional benefits. This will involve:

i. retain certain products

ii. product reformulations (including
salt, sugar, fat reduction)

iii. introducing  new products with scientifically proven
nutritional benefits. Nestlé’s product research and development network ensures
it is well placed to meet the challenge of changes in consumer expectations.
The Company’s Wellness strategy is carefully geared to delivering what
consumers want in relation to the foods they eat – a high nutritional value and
a positive contribution to their general wellness.

 

Contingency
plan

There is variety of risks involved in
the marketing plan. Following are some of the risks and their mitigation
strategies for the marketing plan of Nestle pure water.

i. Wrong Market
Information

In markets the availability of complete
and authentic data is very difficult. There are very few government sources
which provide the market information, but those also cannot be relied upon as
the data collection is not known. In case the data or information taken from
the governmental sources is found to be incorrect then the company will rely
upon the data collected from surveys and past trends.

 

ii. Outsourcing – If the internal
resources are not able to meet the growing demand of the customers then the
production will be outsourced, but the quality will not be sacrificed in any
case.

 

iii. Mismatch of Projections – If there
is a mismatch of the financial projection then the efforts will be re-doubled
and the focus will be on direct marketing. However, the other marketing
expenses will not be cut down as it is very necessary to keep conveying the
message across the target audience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conclusion
and recommendation

In
this report we can understand about the various elements of the marketing
process and the benefits and costs of a marketing orientation for a selected
organization. Understand the micro and macro environmental factors, segmentation
criteria, targeting strategy and positioning to the new product. Also how to
develop the product features, brand name and how to set a good price for the
customers. How to distribute the product to the customers and promote the
product to the customers. In this report can have a good knowledge of marketing
mixes in different contexts. When doing this report we can have good knowledge
about the market and the behavior about the market.

Nestle
can earn greater return from its typical competencies, i.e. sole strengths that
allow a company to achieve higher efficiency, quality, innovation and customer awareness.
By applying those abilities, and the products they produce, to foreign markets
where original competitors lack similar abilities and products, Nestle can
realize huge returns.

 

Additionally,
Nestle can take benefit of location economies. Location economies arise from
performing a value creation activity in the optimal location for that activity,
anywhere in the world. The best location for a value creating activity lowers
the costs of value creation therefore helping the company attain a low-cost
position. However, Nestle must evaluate basic entry decisions before entering a
developing market. The company has to make a choice among different foreign
markets on the basis of their long-run profit likely. Nestle has to balance the
benefits, costs.
