Bio Statement

Tropicana wants to make a splash. Despite a choppy year or two, the juice manufacturer already dominates the national market, with over $1 billion in U.S. earnings. Now, it's trying to bolster this position by sharing creations throughout markets and releasing a worldwide effort highlighting its growers using the tagline"Tap Into Nature."


"We chose to get a international group which makes sure we've got a common worldwide strategy from a positioning standpoint and, where we could, communications and packaging," explained Memo Maquivar, VP-marketing in Tropicana. "It helps us push synergies and assists us leverage breakthrough inventions. It is all about scale and consistency "

In years past campaigns were managed locally, but the production of the International Nutrition Group at October 2010 paved the way for greater cooperation. A new for its signature, trop50, is 1 instance of sharing innovations. Launched from the U.S. at 2009, the reduced-calorie juice has been marketed in Canada, and European markets are thinking about supply, Mr. Maquivar explained. A London agency, contagious, manages creative to your brand.

"With almost any organization and any manufacturer, all of the great ideas aren't always likely to occur in Purchase, N.Y., or Atlanta," said John Sicher, editor and publisher of Beverage Digest. "Sharing thoughts from all over the world absolutely makes sense."

Mr. Maquivar explained that last year has been spent aligning the numerous markets' plans and developing the effort, which will be operating in the U.S., U.K., Canada and France. Tropicana is among a dozen manufacturers singled from PepsiCo for investment in 2012. Toronto, juniper Park, is the international agency of record of Tropicana.


"Tap Into Nature" highlights Tropicana's relationships with its own growers and, at the U.S., touts its infusion is made from 100 percent Florida oranges. It is a change for the organization, which for years were utilizing a mix of oranges and Florida. Additionally, it distinguishes Tropicana in the No. 2 player in the group, Coca-Cola's Just, which utilizes imported oranges.

Mr. Maquivar reported the choice to remove cloned apples was created in November, although it wasn't declared until January amid media coverage about imports of oranges with fungicide, which he stated was a believer.

"Research told me [the origin of the oranges] creates a difference for our customers," Mr. Maquivar explained. "We did not wish to confuse customers while we changed over our distribution chain. "We wanted to guarantee that the merchandise on the shelves supported the message, and it had been consistent."

In early February, the change has been complete, and Tropicana started promoting it. Labels on shelves throughout the nation read that Tropicana was created with Florida oranges, and also highlighted that message.

The imaginative --beauty pictures of growers harvesting oranges within their own groves--will probably appear familiar to U.S. audiences who've seen a continuing effort for Florida's Natural. In reality, that effort is undercut by the change to Florida oranges that are 100 percent of Tropicana. The Natural of florida has been competitive recently in competitors which use oranges. On its site, games encourage out a glass to fill with Florida apples that are just, or utilize a hand to block oranges.

Based on SymphonyIRI, Florida's Natural declared earnings of $315.7 million in sockets excluding Walmart throughout the 52 weeks ended Jan. 22.

Along with the worldwide campaign, Tropicana will be greatly promoting the launch of redesigned packaging at the forthcoming months. The newest is moving from cartons to clear carafes, which Mr. Maquivar stated has resulted in double-digit earnings gains in certain sizes.


Only embraced carafes nicely ahead of its rival, however, and picked up market share because of this. When Tropicana started this past 9, switching to carafes obtained share. Based on SymphonyIRI, Tropicana's earnings fell 5 percent and Simply sales climbed 7 percent at the 52-week period ended Jan. 22. (Symphony IRI sets Tropicana earnings at $854 million during this time period in comparison to $501.9 million for Just. Private-label earnings nevertheless weigh in with a hefty $461.2 million.)

Mr. Maquivar known as the packaging changes a"great transformation" When asked why the brand'd trailed Simply on presenting a bundle consumers had responded to, Mr. Maquivar stated the brand needed to experiment with all the carafe because of the Trop50 brand. "We will need to be quite careful about packaging modifications in Tropicana and also make sure we do not confuse customers," he explained.

Really, a packaging shift in early 2009 infamously went awry, leading to lost earnings and mad consumers." [This ] was a fantastic learning," Mr. Maquivar explained, noting that using the most recent change, messaging cartons alerted customers the carafes were still coming. "We retained the Tropicana emblem and orange-with-a-straw demographics as well as the orange colour on caps to help customers navigate through the shift."
