Title: New Zealand

New Zealand
  • Julie Prinner, Rachel Lehman,
  • Liz Ferneding, Brad Rowley

  • Flavors
  • 25 of New Zealanders report that they love to
    try new things
  • 52 report that they keep up with new things, but
    do not go out of their way to try new things
  • 23 dont waste their time with new things.
  • This percentage is very low in comparison to
    other countries such as China where 50 do not
    waste their time with new products.
  • Since the New Zealanders are receptive to new
    products and tastes they would be willing to try
    new flavors of tea that are not currently on the
    market, giving Lipton a competitive advantage.

  • Packaging
  • Convenience and Portability
  • People are working longer hours than before and
    married women with children are also entering the
    work force.
  • Global trends show that convenience and ease of
    use are key in consumers choices.
  • Due to the on the go mentality of New
    Zealanders product convenience is stressed.
  • The majority of non-alcoholic beverages in New
    Zealand are packaged in PET bottles (plastic)
    with aluminum cans and glass packaging declining
    in use.
  • Focus on Health
  • 43 exercise more than three times per week
  • It would be important to position the product as
    a healthy alternative to soft drinks.

  • Language
  • English and Maori
  • English is the official language of New Zealand
    and less than 10 of the population are of Maori
  • Due to the current position of Lipton in
    Australia, a more standardized approach can be
    used while entering New Zealand and language
    changes would not be necessary, therefore
    reducing costs.
  • Labeling
  • New Zealand has a 99 literacy rate
  • A standardized written label could be used in New
    Zealand due to their literacy rate, which could
    be an issue in lesser developed countries.

  • Retail Price
  • Per Capita Income
  • 21,600 per person
  • Could be priced similarly to the U.S. price of
    tea because of the similar income.
  • Grocery Expenditures
  • The average amount spent on groceries per month
    ranges from 300-400.
  • The average New Zealand household (2.7 people)
    spends 11.00 per week on beverages.
  • Based on average consumption and income our
    intended price of Lipton would be in the reach of
    our customers.

  • Competition
  • Tea
  • Bushells (Unilever)
  • Leading tea brand in New Zealand
  • Lan-Choo (Unilever)
  • Choysa (Unilever)

  • Geography
  • Islands
  • North and South
  • The separation of land by the Cook Strait, poses
    transportation problems.
  • North Island

    and hot springs.
  • South Island
  • Large mountainous area due to the
    Southern Alps and surrounding hill
  • Coastal plains and mountainous terrain dominate
    New Zealands geography.
  • Due to the unusual terrain of New
    Zealand distribution issues such as
    transportation issues could arise.

  • Geography
  • Population Density
  • Approximately 80 of the population lives in New
    Zealands major cities.
  • Iced tea would mainly be sold in cities like
    Auckland and Christchurch.

    centers in Australia and New Zealand

    statistical forecasting to drive the supply chain

    distribution centers and replenished through
  • Manufacturers are supported by a number of New
    Zealand based packaging and ingredient suppliers,
    and a large array of companies from service
    industries such as distribution, Information
    Technology, and advertising

  • Current Distribution Methods
  • Australia offers a distribution option since it
    is such a heavy trade partner with New Zealand.
  • New Zealand and Australia currently hold a free
    trade agreement allowing for tax free trade.
  • Lipton is currently marketing their RTD tea line
    in Australia and due to the close geographic
    proximity of New Zealand, distribution networks
    could be easily established.

    in manufacturing and importing RTD beverages

  • Trade
  • Export Partners
  • Australia accounts for 21.8 of New Zealands
    export business
  • Import Partners
  • Australia controls 22.2 of New Zealands import

    distribution pattern.

    supermarkets/hypermarkets, lead the beverage
    distribution in New Zealand
  • Two companies dominating the grocery sector are
    Progressive Enterprises Ltd and Foodstuffs Ltd,

  • Specialty Stores
  • In New Zealand, smaller specialty stores like
    butcheries and bakeries are more prevalent.

    or more stores.
  • Iced Tea would need to be placed in a wider
    variety of locations to gain full market
    potential, therefore increasing the distribution

  • Consumer Behavior

    projected to reach a value of 77.4 million.
