Kit Kat is a chocolate-covered wafer biscuit bar confection that was created by Rowntree's of York, England, and is now produced worldwide by Nestlé, which acquired Rowntree in 1988, except in the United States where it is made under licence by The Hershey Company. Each bar consists of fingers composed of three layers of wafer, covered in an outer layer of chocolate. Each finger can be snapped from the bar separately. Bars typically have 2 or 4 fingers. Larger Kit Kat Chunky bars are also popular.

HISTORY | | Launched in 1935 and was originally called Chocolate Crisp. From 1945-47, sported a blue wrapper when plain chocolate was used due to milk shortages after the war. | CALORIES | | 230 in a traditional four-finger bar (Nestle) | FAT | | 12g fat (18% daily recommended intake)/7g sat fat (36% daily recommended intake) | HEALTH BENEFITS | | Not brimming with vitamins and minerals, but has some calcium - good for bones and teeth - and iron, good for blood and transporting oxygen around the body. One four-finger bar provides 6% of recommended daily calcium intake and 8% of recommended daily iron intake. Also has 1g of fibre. | DOWNSIDES | | Gives a sugar rush but not very filling. Even has 0.1g of trans fat, the food nasty that is bad for the heart. | SATISFACTION | | Mmmm. Good mouth-feel. And snapping off a finger can be a very satisfying sound, particularly if it is the sound of friends sharing the snack. Rare all-chocolate finger is bliss. | DANGERS | | Dunkers run the risk of burning their actual fingers on hot beverages. | CULTURAL IMPACT | | It's a global chocolate bar, that cuts through cultural differences. The world shares the UK's love of KitKats. | PORTABILITY | | Flat and slips very neatly into…...

Nestlé Crisis Management Contingency Plan

...as a result of these actions as well as solutions. Also included in this document is a proposed strategic communications plan that can be implemented by Nestlé to manage all its online & social media communications. The environmental awareness group Greenpeace claimed that Nestlé was contributing to deforestation by using palm-oil because suppliers expanded oil-palm plantations, paying no heed to the lives of the orangutans which inhibit the forests which would be lost. Greenpeace then proceeded to lead its attack on Nestlé by posting an altered version of Kitkat’s “Have a Break” video on YouTube. This video showed a bored employee taking a break by eating a Kitkat bar. The Video Shows Him Peeling back the wrapper and uncovering an ape finger instead of a kitkat bar. When He starts eating the so called kitkat bar, blood oozes onto his chin and computer keyboard, he wipes it off while continuing to enjoy his break. The Advertisement says “Have a break? Give the Orangutan a Break.” The video was initially viewed by less than 1,000 people and may not have got as much publicity had Nestlé not demanded that YouTube remove the offending post citing copyright infringement as the basis of its demand. Nestlé’s course of action spurred Greenpeace to immediately repost the video on other sites and spread the message through other social media outlets. This created bigger publicity outreach and moved the arena from just a video that was not widely spread into a......

Marketing Mix of Mondelez

...cubes etc. contributes vastly to the bottom line of Nestle. Chocolates – Nestle has some popular chocolate products, most popular being Nestle KitKat, Munch, Milky bar, Eclairs and Polo. The newly introduced Alpino is targeting the gifting segment in response to various chocolates like Dairy milk and Bourneville by Cadbury. The chocolates segment of Nestle is a star, where the competition is high and the expense is high but at the same time the market size is huge as well. The appreciable factor in Nestle is that quality maintenance of products is up to mark and there are hardly any complaints about Nestles products in the market. This is a major achievement for a company which relies majorly on food products. Price The price is dependent on the market of each individual products. For example, Nescafe and Maggi being the clear leaders are priced with higher margins for the company as compared to competition. This is because the product quality is good enough and a bit of skimming price will not cause the customer to switch brands. The strength of pricing for Nestle comes from its packaging or consumption based pricing. For Nescafe as well as Maggi, Nestle offers a lot of sizes and package options. In supermarkets, you can even find a 16 packet Maggi whereas in small retail shops, you can find 5 rs Maggi. In other products like KitKat and Munch, due to tough competition from other companies, Nestle offers competitive pricing. Placement – Nestle follows the......

Micro Economics

...in order to make them special in some ways. If we look at Lindt and Ferrero Rocher, we think it is probably more for occasions such as Christmas because it is consider as 'fine chocolate' wheres KitKat and Mars chocolate is seen more as a snack that people eat during the day. Their chocolate products can be differentiated through many different ways. This differentiation may for example take the form of different packaging. For example, certain chocolate eaters may be receptive to a different chocolate bar design which would be smaller to take the chocolate bar with them. It can also take the form of marketing. For example, a chocolate company may offer the same chocolate range to all age groups. However, they may target certain kinds of chocolate bars for tenagers and others ones to senior citizens. Research the prices of the different producers. What do these prices show us about the ability of each company to set the prices of their products? For the Lindt chocolate, their price range goes from 7 euros to 50 euros for different products. For 7 euros you could have litlle Lindor chocolate box of 300 mg whereas for around 50 euros you could get big chocolate box with around 60 pieces for 10.5g. But their main price range is situated in the 25-30 euros. For the Kitkat chocolate, their price range goes from 1 euros to 5 euros for their different products. They do not have as many products as Lindt but their price range is pretty low because they are only......

...Nestle everyday, Nestle slim and Nestle Milk maid are some of the milk and milk based products from the house of Nestle. Prepared dishes and cooking aides – Nestle has a third category of products which comes into prepared dishes and cooking aides. The major cash cow of Nestle lies in this segment, which is Maggi Noodles. Probably one of the most widely sold ready to cook noodle brands is Maggi. Maggi has a fantastic taste and quality. Thus, it was not a surprise, that Nestle expanded the Maggi brand to create an umbrella of different products like Maggi pasta, Maggi sauce, Maggi cubes etc. The maggi range contributes vastly to the bottom line of Nestle. Chocolates – Nestle has some popular chocolate products, most popular being Nestle Kitkat, Munch, Milky bar, Eclairs and Polo. The newly introduced Alpino is targeting the gifting segment in response to various chocolates like Dairy milk and Bournville by Cadbury. The chocolates segment of Nestle is a star, where the competition is high and the expense is high but at the same time the market size is huge as well. As we can see, two major brands of Nestle are a very high contributor to its Brand equity – Nescafe and Maggi. These are two brands sold across India in small as well as big shops and super markets. There have been many competitors for these products, like Bru for Nescafe and Top ramen and Sunfeast Yippie against maggi. The appreciable factor in Nestle is that quality maintenance of products is upto mark and......

Mapping of Chocolate Industries in Bangladesh

...Bangladesh’s chocolate industry has not grown significantly even after a certain industrial revolution. At present we need to rely on foreign chocolate brands. Different chocolates of Cadbury, Hershey’s, Mars, Snickers, KitKat, Alpenliebe, Toblerone, Eclairs, Munch are few most preferred chocolates in Bangladesh. But unfortunately none of these are local product. We couldn’t develop our chocolate industry much. The reason behind that is lack of interest of customers about chocolate. Marketers could realize that the customer’s demand for chocolate in Bangladesh is not that much high. That’s why this industry failed to grow significantly. However, in recent times the demand of chocolate has increased much. From various report, we could see that the demand of chocolate in Bangladesh has increased over past 5 years, even though the demand is fulfilled by foreign brands. Realizing the demand of customer, many local companies have shown interest to manufacture quality chocolates in Bangladesh. As a result, now we have few local brands in market even though the preference for those chocolates couldn’t meet the expectation. Basically, the quality of local chocolates is not enough to compete with other international brands. Here are few examples of local brands- Pran Eclairs, Pran Layer, Choco Bean, Choco Choco, Milky stick, Gems, Pearls, 2in 1 éclair, Fruto Toffee, Treat Chocolate Bar, Treat Peanut Bar, Cocola Bar, Cocola Frutics, Olympic Choco Funn, Olympic Creamy Caramel, Elson......

Nestle Kitkat

...tagline 'Have A Break, Have A Kit Kat' has come to represent much more than just the physical 'snap' of the wafer fingers!   * Kit Kat continues to be one of the world's best selling confectionery brands. * The 1997 Guinness Book of Records states that 13.2 billion Kit Kat fingers were sold worldwide in 1995 and that every second, 418 Kit Kat fingers are consumed worldwide. * Every five minutes enough Kit Kat is manufactured to outstack the Eiffel Tower, while one year's production would stretch around the London underground more than 350 times. * Launched in 1935 as Chocolate Crisp, Kit Kat was supposedly named after the KitKat Club, an 18th century Whig literacy club. As the building had very low ceilings, it could accomodate only paintings which were wide but not too high. In the art world, such paintings became known as 'kitkats'. It is therefore conceivable that the humble Kit Kat derived its name from paintings which has to be snapped off to fit into low ceilinged rooms. * Many exotic Kit Kat flavours exist in different countries around the world, depending on local tastes. Some examples include the 'green tea' flavoured Kit Kat in Japan, or Peanut Butter flavoured Kit Kat in UK and Canada. * Kit Kat factories are located in York (UK), Toronto (Canada), Hamburg (Germany), Ponda (India), Chembong (Malaysia), Tianjin (China), Kasumigaura (Japan), Campbellfield (Australia), East London (South Africa) and Hershey (USA).

Market Positioning

...dishes and cooking aides and chocolates. The appreciable factor in Nestle is that quality maintenance of products is up to mark and there are hardly any complaints about Nestles products in the market. This is a major achievement for a company which relies majorly on food products. Price: Nestle price is dependent on the market of each individual product; the quality makes it good enough that little price skimming does not cause the consumers to opt for a substitute product. Also, the strength of pricing for Nestle comes from its packaging or consumption based pricing. Nestle offers a lot of sizes and package options. Thus, with the variety available, customer can make his own choice based on his consumption. In other products like Kitkat and Munch, due to tough competition from other companies, Nestle offers competitive pricing. We can find that nestle will be similar priced to many of Cadbury’s Products in the chocolate segment. Place:  Nestle follows the FMCG strategy of distribution which involves breaking the bulk. The typical distribution strategy of Nestle is as follows. Manufacturing>>C & F agent >> Distributors >> Retailers >> Consumer Manufacturing >> Bulk buyers >> Consumer These are the two different forms of distribution which Nestle has. It is typical of any FMCG company. However, the Nestle channel is known to be strong with a good marketing and sales network for channel distribution. On top of it, Nestle......

General Studies

...re-named two years later as KitKat Chocolate Crisp. It became KitKat after the Second World War. No one is sure where the name KitKat came from but it’s thought the famous KitKat Club of the 1920s had some influence. Within two years of launch, KitKat was established as Rowntree’s leading product, a position that it has maintained ever since. During the war, KitKat was portrayed as a valuable wartime food and advertising described the brand as “What active people need”. KitKat 4 Finger For most of its life, KitKat has appeared in a red and white wrapper. It did, however, change to a blue wrapper in 1945, when it was produced with a plain chocolate covering due to shortages of milk after the war. This blue livery was withdrawn in 1947 when the standard milk chocolate KitKat was reintroduced. KitKat was first advertised on TV back in 1957 and had its first colour advert in 1967. Famous adverts include the ‘Dancing Panda’ in 1987 and the ‘Have a Break’ adverts in the 90’s. KitKat is produced at the Nestlé Rowntree Factory and in 2004 a massive 39,000 tonnes of KitKat were sold - that's 107 tonnes a day! Over the years KitKat 4 Finger has appeared in Orange and Mint variants and in 2004 we released a Lemon + Yogurt flavour, a Halloween variant, Blood Orange, and Lime flavoured KitKat. A Caramac variant was launched in 2005 and has proved to be our most successful variant to date. New KitKat 4 Finger Fine Dark For the dark chocolate lovers, new KitKat 4 Finger......

...further growth. Countline Bars Segment This segment forms 33% of the chocolates market. This segment is mostly targeted at teenagers. Major Cadbury brands are 5-Star, Break, Real, Krisp, and Double Decker. 5-Star is doing well here (about 50% of the segment) while the rest of the brands act as endorser brands. Nestle has a minor presence in this category with its product Bar-One. Growth of a Sub Segment: Chocolate Wafers Chocolate wafers are the new products being offered by chocolate companies today in order to expand the market. In 1995, Cadbury and Nestle launched Perk and KitKat respectively. These were wafer–enrobed chocolates in a new context and a different benefit offering. Both chocolates had a snack positioning. Perk offered the anytime anywhere snack proposition – ‘Thodi si Pet Puja’, whereas KitKat tried to promote snacking through ‘Have a break, Have a KitKat. The growth rate of this segment is 15-20% annually, and is estimated to be worth over Rs. 100 crores, making it a very lucrative segment. Internationally, confectionery products like wafer chocolates have a very high tonnage and have a much bigger future than plain chocolates. Market research and success of these two brands suggest that Indian consumers are ready for accepting the wafer chocolate proposition. The conviction of both Cadbury and Nestle towards this segment can be gauged from the fact that both brands are seeing unprecedented allocation of funds, to the tune of 60% to......

Melancholic Life

...sad for me. ------------------------------------------------- I have a friend. Her name is Kitkat. She has a long blonde hair and clear blue eyes. She is really gorgeous. She’s the meanest and kindest girl I have ever met. She’s always there for me. When I was young, kids would call me names and push me. She said I should not fight back, I was not born to fight with dumb kids, and I deserve to have better friends. Kitkat was my only friend back then. We play tea parties together, she sings me songs to sleep and she listens to all my complaints. But whenever I would tell my Mom about Kitkat, she would smile and tell me how much I need to go outside and play with the kids on our block. I would tell Mom that they are mean and they are bullying me and Kitkat said that I should not play with them because I deserve better friends. Mom would always tell me to go up in my room and think about everything that I was saying. I have always been with Kitkat every time she would yell at me and advise me to forget about Kitkat. Kitkat was my only friend. I wanted to introduce her to Kitkat but when I’d say her name she’d go insane and would say that my imagination has run wild again. These words have always hurt me. Doesn’t she want me to have friends? At the moment I felt like she hated me a lot. She hated me so much that she doesn’t want me to have friends. I felt my tears drop. Kitkat came to me and she spoke, “You’ll have a new friend. I’ll be back when he’s gone. Smile.......

It’s well-known red and white colors and the clear KitKat Logo makes it also one of the most recognized brands ever. I will show you how KitKat is marketing their brand by showing the Marketing Mix of KitKat. This consist of the product strategy, the Price strategy, the place strategy and de promotion strategy. First the Product Strategy: The original KitKat is a 4-finger chocolate bar and each finger has 3 layers of wafer and crème-filling, covered in an outer layer of chocolate. In the Netherlands you also have these typical 4-finger bars. But you also have the KitKat Mini with 2 smaller fingers. And there’s a single larger KitKat, the KitKat Chunky, which is also available in white chocolate. And you can buy a MCflurry at the McDonalds, which is an example of Neslte working with another company. Plus there are these new Pop Chocks from KitKat, which are getting more and more popular in the Netherlands. Then the Price Strategy: The key concept of maintaining a strong brand image in a competitive market, is flexibility of the pricing strategy. When we look at the price strategy of KitKat, we see that the price has remained stable over the last couple of years. And it’s not very expensive, it starts from 70 cents. This price......
