SWOT ANALYSIS ON STOP NOT
Strengths
STRONG BRAND VALUE : The product comes with the PERFETTI VAN MELLE tag
so its needless to say it has a pretty strong brand value. ATTRACTIVE PACKAGING:
The management has given the product a very impressive packaging, quite different
from competitors. STRONG DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS : As the company is
already into dominant confectionary business, it doesnt require to explore for the
markets. EXPERIENCED MANAGEMENT TEAM : The company is running by a quite
experienced management team operating in India for the last 16-17 years. GOOD
MARGIN FOR RETAILERS : The company is providing a good margin(substantially
high but yet attractive) to its retail counters, giving an edge over its competitors
product. UNIQUE PRODUCT : The company launched its snacks product which is
quite different from what its competitors are selling. STRONG FINANCIAL POSITION:
Being a Rs.1200 crore company in India, it enjoys a strong financial reputation.
WEAKNESS
LACKS IN TASTE : Unfortunately, the product has failed to impress the masses due
to its low masala content and spiciness. Therefore, the product needs a review from its
R&D team. SPICY SOUTH SALE IS STAGNANT : The Spicy South flavour is not
doing good in the market as compared to its other flavours. DISTRIBUTORS LACK
OF INTEREST : It has been observed that the distributors are not taking much interest
in the snacks item as they are considering it as an extra burden due to its space
consuming cartons. PACKAGING LOOKS SMALL : The packaging looks small as
compared to the other snacks available in the market. SHORTAGE OF STANDS : The
REPORT ON MARKETING MIX OF PERFETTI VAN MELLE
Page 5
Products demand is favourably high at the moment due to its intensive promotion
through T.V. advertisement, but shortage of stands for big packs at the retail counters
might pose a threat to its sale.
OPPORTUNITIES
STAGNANT SUPPLY OF KURKURE : Brand Kurkure is one of the major threat to
the products sale. According to retailers the supply of kurkure is very stagnant at the
moment, so its an opportunity for the product to increase its sales NEEDS A
SEPARATE DISTRIBUTOR : The product requires separate sole snack selling
distributor due to the lack of interest of confectionary selling distributors. The
distributors are demanding extra carriage cost due to its space consuming cartons.
Otherwise the distributors might dump the whole snacks consignment into the
wholesale markets which might affect the sale of the product and its availability in the
retail market. SMALL NET BAGS : The big packs of the product requires small net
bags for the retail counters who cannot afford to buy the quantity required for the stand
and also who buy in low quantities. This can increase the sale of the big packs.
REQUIRES A PRODUCT LINE : The product should be ready with a completely new
set of snacks which should be improvised with more masala content and spiciness,
else its brand might die.
THREATS
The major threat to the product is from the undisputed snacks leader Frito-lays. We
stand nowhere to its sales at the moment, but surely we can give them a tough
competition in near future, if are able to improvise on our product range.
COMPETITORS SELLING EXTRA: All the major brands in the competition like Bingo,
kurkure, parle, oyes are giving some percent extra in their packs resulting in large
looking packaging of their product.
ADVERTISING
From Dimaag ki batti jala de! to Zubaan pe Lagaam!, Perfetti has done it all. A major
chunk of their funds is kept aside for advertising. Also PVM has shown creativity in its
packaging as well as communications and promotions. Keeping upto the expectations
PVM came up with another impressive commercial for Stop Not. However,

advertising has to be backed by availability of the product, in order for the advertising
to deliver the desired results and Perfetti has taken care to ensure the same.
