But there are some of the flavours which may not be easily accepted by consumer such as the durian and chilly flavours. On the other hand, the product packaging is not that attractive, this is one of the problems that made the product look cheaper. Besides, the lacking in advertising for the Beryls products resulted in less comparable to more popular brand like Cadbury.

5.0 Industry and Marketplace


5.1 The Industry 5.1.1 Definition of the Industry The confectionery industry is a group of large companies around the world that produce various types of chocolate, chewing gum, and candy as well as other products made from cocoa. In 2011, the top five confectionery companies Kraft Foods/Cadbury, Mars Incorporated, Nestle SA, the Ferrero Group, and Hershey, comprise most of this multi-billion dollar industry. This industry continues to grow each year despite economic conditions, employs over 500,000 workers in thousands of factories around the world, and produces about 7 billion pounds (about 3.2 billion kg) of these products each year.

5.1.2 Shape of the Industry Chocolate, non-chocolate, and chewing gum are the industry's three main categories. Almost 60% of all confectionery is chocolate. In 2008, the global confectionery industry was valued at almost $150 billion United States dollars (USD). In 2009, all of these companies combined reported just over $54 billion USD in confectionery product sales around the world, employed more than half a million people and operated more than 7,600 factories around the globe. From 2007 to 2008, the confectionery industry grew about 4%. Among all food categories, candy and gum were number four on the list in 2009, right behind salty snacks. The consumption of confectionery products is highest in northern Europe, especially in the Scandinavian countries. The average Swiss person consumes about 25 pounds of chocolate each year.

5.1.3 Development of the Industry The confectionery industry has a long and storied history. John Cadbury opened a shop in 1824, selling coffee, tea, cocoa, and drinking chocolate as an alternative to alcoholic drinks. The company continued to grow into one of the world's largest confectionery manufacturing companies. Cadbury was acquired by Kraft Foods in 2010 making Kraft/Cadbury the world's largest producer of chocolate and candy in the confectionery industry. Heinrich Nestle, a German pharmacist working in Vevey, Switzerland, founded the Nestle Company in 1866. In 1875, Nestle and a friend, Daniel Peter, discovered how to mix milk and cocoa powder to create milk chocolate. Nestle and Peter started the world famous Nestle
13 | P a g e

company, which soon became the world's leading manufacturer of chocolate in the early 20th century. In 1894, Milton Hershey decided to manufacture chocolate to coat caramel candies. Hershey began to produce chocolate in bars, wafers, and other shapes. At that time in history, chocolate was considered a luxury item available only to the wealthiest people of society. Milton Hershey introduced mass-production in his factory and was able to make his chocolate affordable to all people.

5.2 The Marketplace 5.2.1 Current Condition of the Marketplace The market of chocolate industries is increasing nowadays, and so do the competitors. Since confectionary is fast moving consumer goods, they are almost being bought every day as snacks or those who love to enjoy sweet foods. So, there are more chances that a consumer will be buying these products.

5.2.2 Changes in Marketplace Positive o This leads to more and more consumer that will buy confectionary products. Negative o Competition in the market will keep on rising, this make it harder to compete with other leading confectionary industries.

6.1 Direct Competitors 6.1.1 The Hershey Company

16 | P a g e

6.1.5 Toblerone

Toblerone is a chocolate bar brand owned by Kraft Foods, who acquired the product from former owner Jacobs Suchard in 1990. It is well-known for its distinctive packaging, its prism shape and its ubiquity in duty-free shops. Toblerone was created by Theodor Tobler (1876 - 1941) and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland in 1908. They developed a unique milk chocolate including nougat, almonds and honey with a distinctive triangular shape. The product's name is a portmanteau combining Tobler's name with the Italian word torrone (a type of nougat). The image of a bear is hidden in the Matterhorn mountain symbolizing the town of its origin.

6.2 Indirect Competitor 6.2.1 Famous Amos

In 1975, inspired by a passed-down family recipe, Wally Amos perfected the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. By using only the best ingredients, like semi-sweet chocolate chips and flavorful nuts, these homemade-tasting cookies became famous just by word of mouth. Today, Famous Amos cookies continue to be enjoyed by true cookie lovers everywhere. On March 10, 1975, Amos took the advice of some friends and opened a cookie store in Los Angeles, California, naming it "Famous Amos". In the first year he sold $300,000 worth of cookies, followed by more than $1,000,000 in sales in the store's second year of operation.
The store proved so popular that the "Famous Amos" brand eventually branched out to sell cookies in supermarkets, a move that would later be emulated by other specialty stores such as Baskin Robbins, T.G.I. Fridays, and Starbucks. The Famous Amos brand has gone through a number of owners since inception. Between 1985 and 1989, the Famous Amos company went through four different owners. In 1992 the President Baking Company purchased the brand from The Shansby Group. Then, in 1998, Keebler purchased the President Baking Company. It was then owned by Keebler until the Kellogg Company purchased Keebler in 2001. The brand is now a part of Kellogg's.

6.2.2 Magnum Classic

Magnum is an ice cream brand owned by the British/Dutch Unilever company, and sold as part of the Heartbrand line of products in most countries. It was originally made by Frisko in Aarhus, Denmark. The original 1987 Magnum (later rebranded as Magnum Classic) consisted of a thick bar of vanilla ice cream on a stick, covered with white or dark chocolate, with a weight of 86 grams (120 ml). In 1994 the company also started selling Magnum ice cream cones, and in 2002 an ice cream sandwich.

7.0 SWOT Analysis


7.1 Strengths
Established chocolate manufacturer company in Malaysia. Chocolates are made from the cocoa beans from Ghana, a globally recognized source of the very best cocoa beans. Chocolates can be purchased at affordable prices. Chocolates are available in wide varieties of flavours to choose from. Products can be easily purchased in most retail outlets in Malaysia. Products are exported to overseas countries, can broaden the Beryls marketplace. Managed to cater the products to many different countries in the world, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, India, Maldives, Indonesia, Philippines, New Zealand, Saipan, Brunei, Macau, Dubai and Beijing. Provide ingredients to professional users such as chocolatiers, pastry chefs, bakeries, hotels, restaurants and caterers. One of the most successful chocolate manufacturers in Malaysia.

7.2 Weaknesses
Too many varieties of chocolate flavours resulting in over produced products. Some of the chocolate flavours cannot be easily accepted by consumers. Unattractive packaging design. Lack of advertising of products through media.

7.3 Opportunities
Online socialising is getting more and more popular, Beryls could try to advertise their products through social websites like Facebook. E-commerce is widely used nowadays for buying and selling over the internet. Beryls can consider set up an online stores for easy purchase of products for overseas country. Festive seasons in Malaysia are also a great way to promote sales for bulk purchases/hampers. The company has the opportunity to expand its global operations. Since they already exported to country as far as Dubai. Promoting during food fairs which will also help to improve brand recognition.

7.4 Threats
They have major competitors, like Hershey's, Cadbury, Kraft Foods, Nestle. Raw chocolate ingredient prices are soaring; dairy costs alone rose 50% in 2008, this cuts heavily into their profit margins and often gets passed on to consumers, by shrinking the packaging in a way that is almost unnoticeable-therefore the consumer is paying the same prices for less product. Common misconception of chocolates affects health among peoples. It may be true that chocolate maybe cause some health issues but it is not that serious or major problem as it seems.

I also paid a visit to their HQ at Sri Kembangan to take some picture of their factory outlet and met him personally.
