Nestle Business Case Analysis

...I - Issue and Scope: The primary Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) issue in the case is whether Nestlé should label its new product ‘Partners’ Blend’ with the Fairtrade brand or continue with its own social responsibility initiatives. United Kingdom (U.K.) is one of Nestles major markets. Therefore, it is imperative for Nestlé to be aware of the social, environmental and financial circumstances surrounding its business. Social: From the social perspective, the main circumstances that concerned Nestlé were local infrastructure, Fairtrade payment and the avoidance of child labor. In connection to that, products marked with Fairtrade label were described as “ethical” and “sustainable” conveying a broad message that farmers of these products have been given fixed price or have met ethical standards. Environmental: From the environmental perspective, there is a growing market trend in the U.K. for environmentally-friendly materials and therefore recycled materials in the packaging would have a big impact in consumers purchase decision. In addition, ecological washing systems have been built by Nestlé initiatives in order to expand water distribution within communities.

Summary and Analysis of Us Stock Market and the Law of Supply and Demand

...the Stock Market Supply and demand is one of the most important influences in any economic marketplace. In most industries the law of supply and demand is an accepted theory to explain the price of products and services. One industry that overlooked the significance of the law of supply and demand in the past is the stock market. Experts attributed the Stock Bubble of the 1990s to an overly simple theory. It was believed that rising prices in stocks were caused by an underlying rise of companies’ value. The price of stocks in the 1990s is today better understood as derived from a shortage of equities in the market (Oswin, 2005). The law of supply and demand is a fundamental concept in economics that explains market factors such as the quantity of a product or service demanded by consumers, the supply of products or services that suppliers are willing to produce and the relationship between supply and demand to create market equilibrium. The law of supply and demand also tries to explain what conditions in the market create changes in quantity demand and supplied in the market (Colander, 2008). In his essay, The Relative shortage of Equities, Oswin (2005) describes some of the conditions that affect stock market activity and explains the theories behind the demand and supply of equities, which drive the prices of the market. According to Oswin (2005), the law of supply and demand is the cause behind bear and bull markets. Investors use the term bear market to......

Nestle Case Analysis

...Nestle Refrigerated Foods: Contadina Pasta and Pizza Problem Statement In the late 1980s the refrigerated foods market was not as developed in the United States in comparison to the refrigerated food market in Europe. Refrigerated foods were a successful and emerging market in Europe and many global food manufacturers began to target the U.S. market due to the immense untapped potential for refrigerated food products. Nestle, one of the largest food companies in the world, operated in the United States as Nestle Refrigerated Food Company (NRFC) and had entered the U.S. market for refrigerated foods with Contadina Pasta and Sauces in 1987. Contadina Pasta and Sauces was very successful with sales of $50 million in the first year and $100 million in sales by 1990. To sustain the rapid growth, NRFC contemplated extending the Contadina brand product offerings with a refrigerated pizza product. Leveraging early success of Contadina pasta and sauces, Nestle developed two concepts to enter a growing Italian food market with a refrigerated pizza product. The two concepts were (a) a pizza kit only product and (b) a pizza kit with toppings product. With competitors also developing a refrigerated pizza product, Nestle needed to make a decision on which product to bring to market. We will evaluate the two concepts noted above and present the consumer, demand and competitive analysis as well as SWOT.

Recently, younger generations are more prone to purchase low costing, portable contemporary furniture and home furnishing products. The purpose of this report is to ascertain how Douglas Design LLC should determine its strategic position in Washington DC and abroad. A) Brief Analysis of the Market: Office furniture sales in US largely depend on the US economy whilst the volume of home furniture mostly depends on the level of home sales. The profitability of individual companies is closely linked to volume they sell, since many costs are fixed. Large companies enjoy economies of scale* in purchasing. Small companies can compete effectively if they produce specialty items or high-quality workmanship that can sell for a price in accordance with what competitor sells. In general, the largest 50 companies generate about 40 percent of revenue. In US, Douglas Design LLC would face competition from Hellman Chang, Pottery Barn, Sears, Minimalista, Conran, Cratel & Barrel, Ethan Allen etc. Globally the main competitors are IKEA and Walmart, which sell very low cost and good quality furniture.
