In a span of 6 years Sunfeast has launched many new varieties and has its presence in almost all types of biscuit categories.
The biscuits industry had witnessed little innovation; Glucose was Glucose and Marie was still Marie. The company decided that this could be its biggest point of attack. In 2003, ITC launched Sunfeast with six ranges. But it was a calculated risk. ITC stuck to category favourites like Glucose, Marie and Bourbon cream.
Along with that, it also launched innovations such as orange-flavoured Marie, Marie light and butterscotch-flavoured cream biscuits. In 2004, Sunfeast followed this up with the launch of Sunfeast Milky Magic. More recently, it also has launched the Sunfeast Snacky and Sunfeast Golden Bakes.

CHIPS
Frito Lays:
Frito Lay products are generally marketed to the Hispanics prior to targeting the general market. Frito Lay has Mexican roots which explain why the Hispanic market was the initial market segment. The attractiveness of the market is evident on the strong needs for snacks among all segments. Nevertheless, the focus of segmentation is on penetrating the teen segment. As such, while the Hispanic population likes bold and spicy flavoured snack, there is high influence on kids in making snack purchase decisions, emerging Y generation has
purchase power and busy lifestyles demand food on the go.
Further, Frito Lay is a leader in the dip market but since there are many competitors in the market the company decided to penetrate the vegetable dip segment. This is in addition to chip dips segment particularly the shelf-stable sour cream based dip and other chip dips
which are already in the mature stage of its lifecycle.
As already noted the Hispanic population is the initial target market but now also includes the generations X and Y. Teenagers make up a considerable percentage in the marketing activities of Frito Lay especially since they are very particular with value of money.

Sunfeast Pasta Treat :
After Top Raman its ITC product PASTS from Sunfeast who will try to take over the Nestlai product Maggi. As per as the history which I have got about Pasta, oh! Remember I am only concerned with its origin. Pasta is an Italian dish however there has always been confusion that whether Pasta origin is from China or is it of Italy itself. Chinese noodles are said to be 1000 year old and is believed that pasta is result of migration of people from China to Italy where this dish was named as Pasta. The world "pasta" probably takes its origin from the Greek word which means "flour mixed with liquid". Later on it became an italic dish, which the ancient Romans called "lagano"
Italian Pasta:
Experts in nutrition suggest eating at least 100g of pasta daily because in this way, it provides the body with 14% to 18% of its energetic needs. It has been clinically proved that pasta reduces the cholesterol grade in blood . Pasta, moderately spiced, can also be included in slimming diets. In fact, increasing the volume during cooking causes problems in keeping calories to the allowed limits.

Segmentation:

Social classes are society’s relatively permanent and ordered divisions whose members share similar values, interest and behaviours. It is not determined by a single factor, such as income, but it is measured as a combination of occupation, income. Education, wealth and other variables. Social class consists of upper class, middle class, working class and lower class.
As we all know SUNFEAST PASTA has a reasonable price coming in packets of Rs12, Rs15 etc. So it is affordable for every class to buy it according to their comfort.

• Age And Life-Cycle Stage:
People change the goods and services they buy over their lifetime’s .Tastes in food, clothes, furniture and recreation are often age related.It is understood mostly youngsters like SUNFEAST PASTA, specially the children aging from 8-18 years.
Marketers often define their target market in terms of lifecycle stage. A Lifecycle stage includes bachelor stage, newly married couple, full nest, empty nest, solitary survivors etc.
It is not necessary that every stage has same habits. According to their stage they select their food items. Thus bachelor stage mostly prefers this type of food.
• Psychographic Segmentation
• Life Style
A person’s pattern of living as expressed in his or her activities, interests and opinions. People coming from the same subculture, social class, and occupation may have quite different lifestyles.
Eating junk food comes in some people lifestyle. So they prefer to purchase SUNFEAST PASTA also.

• Personality And Self Concept
Personality refers to the unique psychological characteristics described in terms of traits such as self confidence , sincerity, dominance etc .That lead to relatively consistent and lasting responses to one’s own environment.
Many marketers also use a concept related to personality-a person’s self concept (self-image).To understand the consumer behaviour; the marketer must first understand the relationship between consumer self-concept and possessions.
A consumer’s behavior also is influenced by social factors, such as the consumer’s small groups, family ,and social roles and status.

• Reference Group
Groups are formed when two or more people interact to accomplish individual or mutual goals. In contrast reference groups serve as a direct or indirect point of comparison informing a person’s attitude or behaviour. People are generally influenced by reference groups to which they do not belong.
If one person in a group consumes SUNFEAST PASTA then it will automatically influence the person in other group to buy it as group affects each other.
