Executive Summary

.Nestlé Bangladesh Limited started its first commercial production in

Bangladesh in 1994. In1998. Nestlé S.A. took over the remaining 40%
share from our local partner when Nestlé Bangladesh became a fully
owned subsidiary of Nestlé S.A.

Nestlé Bangladesh's vision is to be recognized as the most successful

food and drink company in Bangladesh, generating sustainable,
profitable growth and continuously improving results to the benefit of
shareholders and employees. Our factory is situated at Sripur, 55 km
north of Dhaka; the factory produces instant noodles, cereals and
repacks milks, soups, beverages and infant nutrition products. Today
Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd. is a strongly positioned organization. The
company will continue to grow through our policy of constant
innovation and renovation, concentrating on our core competencies
and our commitment to high quality, with the aim of providing the best
quality food to the people of Bangladesh.

The company wants to launch a new type of chips in the market. It is

totally different from the traditional chips. It is a high quality chips
which will be harmless. In that product, there will have some special
ingredients which will provide nutrition and which will be work as
digester. So definitely, that product will be an exclusive product in the
market. The target market of that product will be those who think that
chips are harmful for health; those who have digesting problems; and
the current users of the chips.
Our chips will provide some exceptional tastes which will provide great
pleasure. The chips will be sugarless so it will not be harmful for teeth.
There will no chemical color in this chip. This is mainly a natural
product which has no bad side effect.

After analyzing the market demand I have seen that there is a demand
in the market for this kind of product. And after SWOT analysis I have
seen that the company has a great opportunity to enter in this
business. Otherwise, there are a few risk involved this business. The
product will be a very new product and there is chance of rejection by
the market. The competition will also high. And if we succeed any large
company can easily enter this market. Considering all the possible
threats I can suggest the company that it will be profitable to enter this
business because there are some positive sides of the product and the
company is also strong. After estimating the cost and sales I can say
that it will be profitable. So the higher authority should consider this
marketing plan.

Current Market Analysis

Economy: Bangladesh is a developing country. though the economic

condition of this country is not so good, The economy is turning from
agricultural sector to and industry sectors. So the future of any industry
like chips in this country is very bright.

Government:The govt. is also attentive about the industry sector and

sencourages and helps to establish new businesses.

Legal: The govt. regulations or the legal condition of Bangladesh is

also not a big obstacle at starting new business or to launch new
product. But in terms of introducing new consumer product, a company
must obtain the approval of BSTI (Bangladesh Standard & Testing
Institute). So to launch a new chips the company must obtain BSTI

Technology: The technological environment of Bangladesh is not

developed. So, new and advanced technology and machinery have to
be imported from the abroad to produce qualified chips.

Socio-cultural: From the socio-cultural point of view, there is no barrier

for chips. The chips have a good acceptance in Bangladesh. But many
people are aware about its bad effect. They know that chips are
harmful for health and there is a strong idea about this in mind of the

Customers: Bangladesh is an over populated country. It has a large

amount of population. And many of them are fond of chips. So there is
vast market for the chips industry. But some people are disinterested
about the chips. So the people have also some negative ideas about
the product.

Competitors: The chips industry in Bangladesh is not small. There are

a lot of chips producers. Some of them are national and some of them
are local suppliers. Some companies also export their chips. In our
country many foreign brands are also available. They are
comparatively costly also. So the consumers’ taste and demand are
changing from low quality chips to high quality chips. Now the chips
industry of Bangladesh is very competitive.

Suppliers: Bangladesh has a lot of resources. Even then many items of

the chips especially chemical ingredients have to be imported from
abroad. So the supply of raw materials from local and foreign sources is
very important in producing the chips and its good management can
be a competitive advantage.

Marketing Intermediaries: As the various branded chips are available
all over the country, many intermediaries are now involved in this
business. So using the present intermediaries any company can reach
their chips easily to its target market.


According to my market survey, the market has a demand of this kind

of product. At present, a lot of chips are available in the market. And
there are some kinds of Vitamin-C tablet and a very few breath
refreshing tablets are available in the market. But there is an idea in
the market that chips are very harmful for the teeth. So a lot of
conscious people do not take chocolate or chips and many parents do
no feel comfort to give this to their children. So people have a latent
demand of harmless chips.

I have collected good information about the market and I have

personally gathered a great idea about the common attributes of our
potential customers. Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd. will leverage this
information to better understand who will be served, their specific
needs, and how the company can better communicate with them.

By using the present distribution channel Bombay Sweets Bangladesh

Ltd can easily market this product. The company has many consumer
products. The company can use its present marketing channel to make
the products available all over the country.

Bombay Sweets Bangladesh Ltd can also use its current delivery
vehicles to deliver the product to the wholesalers. The company can
use its local offices to deliver to the retailers. So at introduction stage,
company’s current marketing channel is enough to deliver the products
to wholesalers and retailers.

Marketing Mix Strategy: PROMOTION

It plays an important role in the exchange process by informing

customers of an organization’s product or service and convincing them
of its ability to satisfy their needs or wants.

We will use the following promotional mix:
●Personal selling
●Direct marketing
●Sales promotion

Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd will take a large promotional program for this
product. The company will keep a hand some amount for the
promotional activities of the product. As it is a new brand more
promotion is needed to build up the brand awareness.

Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd. will use ads through TV, Radio, and Newspaper,
Internet, Information, Home Delivery, Bill Board, Ticket Advertises,
Concert Programs, Power point presentation. Banner, Festoon, Placard,
Joining Fair
to aware people about these chips. The company will take the strategy
to create awareness about the bad effects of the traditional chips. Then
the company will present its chips to the market as harmless to
children and students as well as young and old people.


In the newspaper advertising, the company will know or inform the

people about the bad effect of the traditional chips and inform about
the good sides of the Apple chips. In their TV commercial they will also
try to build awareness in the minds of the customers and try to acquire
a strong position in the minds of the customers. In the electronic
media’s advertising the company can present famous and renowned
doctors to inform people about the difference between traditional chips
and our Apple chips.

Public Relation:

The company will take a mass public relation program. Nestlé

Bangladesh Ltd will have to take this kind of promotional activities such
as stall booking in many trade fair, child fair etc. to create a positive
image about the brand. The company needs no special personal selling
program for this product. In introduction stage sales promotion will not
also be considered.

Retailers and Wholesalers:

Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd will give many facilities to the retailers and the
wholesalers. To take the competitive advantage the company will give

more facilities than its competitors. The intermediaries are given many
gifts items such as wall clock, T-shirts etc. and sales helping
equipments such as keeping pots, bill board etc.


They will develop some cartoons which will be used on the T-shirts, bill
boards, neon boards, and in some ads to attract the children and
young people. The company also uses this brand’s logo, picture,
symbol etc. on many toys, dolls and on many other things to know and
attract the target market.

Marketing Research:

During the initial phase of the marketing plan development, several

focus groups were held to gain insight into prospective customers.
These focus groups provided helpful insight into the decision making

An additional source of dynamic market research is a feedback

mechanism based on a suggestion system. In the suggestion system
customers are asked to rate in terms of a given scale. There are also
several open ended questions that allow the customer to freely offer
constructive criticism or praise. Nestlé Bangladesh Ltd will work hard to
implement reasonable suggestions in order to improve their products
offerings, as well as show its commitment to the customer that their
suggestions are valued.

The last source of market research is competitive analysis. Nestlé

Bangladesh Ltd will send people to local competitors to gain
information about their product offerings and also its competitors’
product offerings.

Implementation And Control

marketing plan includes different kinds of budget and managerial

assignment for every action program. It describes how to implement
marketing plan. For control purposes, the plan also allows for quarterly
comparison of actual versus projected sales and expenses. If we can
not do this comparison among the plan then we never go to the
competition. For our better performance we need comparison between
actual and projected sales and expenses. If there find out any gap in
plan and output, we have to take corrective actions. Not only that, if
there is any problem arise in production, marketing process, or any
other areas, we have to take necessary steps to overcome that. Finally,
the management will monitor the total environment, progress, and gap
and will take the corrective actions if necessary. The company always
has to maintain the TQM (Total Quality Management).


We have learn many things after preparing our report. In the above we discuss the
strengths of our company that will help in future because without strengths a company
cannot exit.Our company solves its weakness and overcomes its threats. Our company
adds exclusive taste in chips and our product has some exclusive
characteristics that will help us to acquire position in the minds of the
customers. Our chips contain such advantage or features that will achieve its customer


At first we want to say that The Organic 7 Company Ltd should have a specific marketing
department which will work under the supervision of the executive directors. This
department consisting of marketing specialist whose main job are planning and
implementing of marketing activities such as advertising, promotional campaigns, public
relations, providing market information to sales department.

The major activities of the department can be listed as follows:
• Carry out market reach, customer satisfaction survey.

• Encourage the customer to the brand.
• The authority should be conscious about their marketing strategy.
• Should be more advertisement in the content of whole Bangladesh focused on

• The company should offer more facilities to the customers as per customaries
