  • In 2008, peste 50% din vanzarile de apa minerala ale Pepsi Americas Romania au fost realizate in HoReCa (Roua Muntilor singurul brand local al Pepsi Americas)

    Retailul genereaza cele mai mari vanzari de apa minerala Segmentul HoReCa este important pentru producatori datorita castigurilor aduse brandurilor la nivel de imagine

    in 2008 brandurile internationale (Evian, Vittel si San Pellegrino) aveau cote de piata nesemnificative in retail, insa pozitii puternice in canalul HoReCa

    Brandurile de apa internationale erau aduse in Romania prin distribuitori independenti iar companiile Danone si Nestle nu aveau divizii locale de apa

  • Conclusions

    Do not ignore the power of naming & packaging

    Branding is not about form, nice identity & colors

    Branding is about:positioningrelevancedifferentiation

    *Romanians are more and more concerned about their health, therefore the sparkling mineral water is more and more appreciated. Starting 1994, mineral water market had the biggest increase in non-alcoholic drinks*The spring is in Valea Zanelor/ Covasna, a non-polluted area, with a long tradition in exploiting the water. Since 1882, the mineral water originated in this area- Horgasz spring has been awarded at Trieste, and this fact demonstrates its quality.Being at 600 m altitude, Covasna has a climate with one of the highest levels of negatives ions in Europe, due to the fir forests.The natural exceptional qualities of the new brand (Roua Muntilor) are kept unchanged by the catching procedure directly from the source and by the bottling in a factory in which 7 million USD were invested for latest technology.

    *awareness, trial, usage, preference for carbonated mineral waterbenefits sought motivations behind consuming circumstances for consuming personality of carbonated mineral waterbrands image (according to benefits sought, motivations, circumstances of consumption and personality)market segments based upon the benefits sought in carbonated mineral water and upon their demographic viewpointthe brands positioning on the marketconsumption and buying habits for carbonated mineral waterattitudes towards health, life values and leisure time activities

    *The name is the best way to position a new brand and the communication should articulate some of the name connotations

    The mineral water category is a very functional one and that is why first of all we have to build the product attribute level and to build a strong positioning around the rational territory*The Purity Seekers as a segment (33,9% from all consumers) differ from the others both in terms of socio-demographic characteristics, but also in terms of lifestyle and attitudes. Socio-demographics younger than averagemore than 70% being aged less than 44 y.o.

    Attitudes towards health sportive, dynamic personsalmost 60% of them (far above average) mentioned that making physical exercises, fitness, jogging, sport is the most helpful way of maintaining their healththey tend to supply their body with vitamins on a regular basis (indexed 136 from the average)

    Consumption habits strongly related to sport and physical activities53,2% consume sparkling water after a physical or mental effort
