Introduction
Maggi noodles is a brand of instant noodles manufactured by Nestl. In several countries, it is also known as "maggi mee" (mee is Indonesian/Malay/Hokkien for noodles).Maggi noodles are part of the Maggi family, a Nestl brand of instant soups, stocks, and noodles. In Malaysia, there are fried noodles made from maggi noodles known as Maggi goring. Maggi noodles recently introduced a new variety of its noodles, to cater for the health conscious like 'No MSG', 'Less Salt', and 'No Trans fat'. This move helps the brand in India as suburban mothers, who feed the noodles to children as an afterschool snack, are the primary customers of the brand. Recently, a line of rice noodles and whole wheat with pulses, carrots, beans, and onions has also been introduced in India. In mid-2008, New Zealand supermarkets introduced replacement formulations for its Beef, Oriental, and Curry flavors. A new feature is an extra sachet containing dehydrated vegetables. Maggi claims the new range contains 88% less total fat and 86% less saturated fat than the average of top-three (unnamed) 2-minute-noodle competitors. The new Maggi range also has considerably lower fat than its own previous formulation. However, the salt content has been increased by 31 percent. Flavors Maggi Noodles are available in a large assortment of different flavors and vary from country to country. Maggi noodles also produces instant noodles known as "Hot Bowl" noodles named "Cuppa Mania" in India. In Some countries, new flavors were made on the 25th Anniversary. Health claims controversy Nestl have faced criticism over their advertising of the Maggi brand, adhering to marketing regulations in developed countries, but making misleading claims in developing countries where regulation permits it. For example, in October 2008 Nestl mistakenly aired an advert meant for Bangladeshi TV on British TV. The advert made false claims that the noodles would "help to build strong muscles, bone and hair".

HISTORY OF MAGGI
INDIA: Nestl India Ltd. (NIL), the Indian subsidiary of the global FMCG major, Nestl SA, introduced the Maggi brand in India in 1982, with its launch of Maggi 2 Minute Noodles, an instant noodles product. With the launch of Maggi noodles, NIL created an entirely new food category instant noodles - in the Indian packaged food market. Because of its first-mover advantage, NIL successfully managed to retain its leadership in the instant noodles category even until the early 2000s. During the 1990s, the sales of Maggi noodles declined, and this was attributed partly to the growing popularity of Top Ramen, another instant noodles product. In order to improve sales and attract more consumers, NIL changed the formulation of Maggi noodles in 1997. However, this proved to be a mistake, as consumers did not like the taste of the new noodles. In March 1999, NIL reintroduced the old formulation of the In July 2001, Maggi replaced Nescafe (NIL's coffee products brand) as the company' score brand. Nescafe had been NIL's core brand since 1998.Commenting on the shift, Carlo Donati (Donati), chairman and managing director, NIL, said, "The focused approach on Nescafe, which was the company's flagship brand over the last few years, has yielded rich dividends and we plan to replicate the same in case of Maggi as well."In the early 2000s, the Nestl Group had been taking measures to transform itself into a health and wellness' company. Since the early 2000s, the Nestl Group had been introducing 'health and wellness products all over the world. In India, NIL introduced new 'healthier' weaning and milk products in 2004.In March 2005, the Maggi brand too took to the health route with the launch of Vegetable Atta Noodles. NIL made use of the group's extensive research and development facilities in developing this new 'healthy' product.

The graph here shows that price and quantity of Maggi were in much better range than Top Ramen and thus the demand of maggi sustained in the market. Price ElasticityMaggi is a brand loyal product. Even if the price is increased the customers are still ready to purchase maggi. Thus the elasticity is positive. Cross ElasticityIf there is an increase in the price of Top Ramen or Knorr by 20% to 25% then the demand for maggi will increase by 8%. Short run and Long run impact in the elasticity of the demand In the Short run period of time, the demand for the Maggi is less elastic because if the price of maggi suddenly increases Rs.10 to Rs.15, than the demand of the product will also decrease but in the long run the demand may not be much affected. There are some criteria that also affects and they are like: Our product should be in the monopolistic competitive market product. No change in the taste and quality. In the Long run period of time, the demand for the maggi is more elastic because if the price of the maggi in the 2007 was Rs.10 and in 2010 it is Rs.15 and, the quantity and the quality remaining the same and the if other products dont change any of the things like price, quality and quantity than it will greatly affect the demand of the maggi and it will started decreasing day by day. ANALYSIS Maggi is having the best channel, as the product is easily available at almost each& every store. Next comes the top ramen which is also established in the market from long time but brands like Knorr, Sunfeast, Horlicks is not available at stores& if it is available its not been sold. Pricing has been a very important factor when it comes to the sales of Maggi products and retailers emphasize on the fact that customers want a good price as there are competitors coming in the market. Television is the medium from which people are aware and enlightened about the brand. Its also been observed that Maggi has the best mind-share among all the brands that were researched in the project. Also, apart from it being a ready-to-eat product with fun, Maggi as a brand is perceived as a family product amongst the other brand which was researched.
