Successes and Failures in Consumer Packaged Goods Innovation and Marketing

14 Feb 2011 • by Natalie Aster

London – Effective innovation is illusive, but is the key to sustained competitive advantage in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. The report “Successes and Failures in Consumer Packaged Goods Innovation and Marketing ” by Datamonitor examines best-in-class examples of innovation and marketing to drive success in this increasingly challenging environment.

A number of successes benefit by offering something unique and experiential for a given consumption occasion. This often involves effectively ‘ritualizing’ product preparation and consumption. Philadelphia Cream Cheese Highlights how a campaign can challenge preconceived notions about how a product can be enjoyed, thereby introducing new rituals. There would appear to be particularly profitable opportunities at the intersection of trends. For example, Lawson’s bread in Australia effectively combined authenticity claims (sensory) with packaging benefits (convenience) to garner success in a cluttered segment. Many examples are testament to great marketing as much as they are about the inherent innovativeness of the actual product features/benefits.
