Cadbury's Use of Market Research

Powerful Essays
P3- Cadburys use of market research that contributes to the development of its market plans.
Cadburys used different methods to complete a market research for their product ‘Cadburys Snaps’. All the techniques they used influenced the way they launched and produced their new product.
Cadburys first identified a market through a rise in modern society. With modern technologies people are often found to have a night in, with things such as ‘Girls Nights’ becoming popular. Cadburys noticed that there would be a market for snacks, for these type of events and ‘lazy days, something that is ‘easy to share and contains enough pieces in the pack for everyone’. Cadburys have acknowledged the problem and have created a solution: ‘Cadbury Snaps are individual chocolate curves, available in a variety of flavours. There are approximately 40 curves in each pack. With so many pieces in each pack and with Snaps available in a variety of flavours, Snaps are an ideal chocolate sharing product.’ This criteria fits into the needs for this type of market as well as Cadburys finding a target market: ‘young adults (20-35 years old) who are sociable and enjoy spending time with their friends and family.’ Cadburys have found a problem and offered a solution to a target market that is likely to purchase the product.

As part of Cadburys market research they discovered that most ‘snacking’ was taking place between meal times when consumer felt “peckish”. The main time being in the evening, this suits the gap that Cadburys found. They looked at their own products at what else could suit this genre or rival the snaps, but for products like the ‘Cadbury flake and Dairy Milk’, there was not as bigger market for sharing, where the snaps looked to capitalise on, with them being in a tube and the multiple amount of chocolate curves developed.

    Participants were divided into 2 groups based on response to the first question (Do you drink hot beverages?) to separate chocolate consumers from those who prefer other beverages (tea or coffee). Main reason of buying and drinking food beverages (FB) like chocolate was indulgence. Furthermore, older people are likely to drink in the evening to relax before sleep. Answers to Q3 (Where do you shop for your hot beverages?) lets us assume that participants buy chocolate during their usual shopping in supermarkets so it is necessary for RLL’s brand to develop good positioning in shelves so their products will attract the eyes of customers and they will buy RLL’s chocolate out of hand. As it goes to reason behind buying, situation is complicated because all of the respondents gave different answers.
