B2B Brand Positioning

ShaktiVita - Brand Positioning for B2C Enterprises



Our client is the Karnataka Comprehensive Nutrition Mission. They wanted to launch a fortified food made by self help groups of rural women in Raichur and Gulbarga. The project was supported by Tata Trusts and Karnataka Health Promotion Trust was the field partner.
The clients wanted a sales and marketing consultant to help them arrive at a ground up sales strategy, devise a marketing mix (product range, pricing, brand identity), recruit the right field force and support the launch.
Our brief was to arrive at an insightful and data based retail launch strategy which included brand positioning, brand identity and packaging, trade feedback to the priced proposition and ground up business plan.
In addition, we were also their ongoing recruitment and training support partner for this exercise.
