Ahmad Tea: Opportunities and Challenges Abroad

Hope.LeeAnalyst Insight by Hope Lee - Senior Beverages Analyst

Generally, Ahmad Tea exports its processed tea to its target markets and relies on local companies to pack, market and distribute them with its guidance. In Iran, Ahmad Tea has established itself for many years and ranks second in tea, and its local partner is Maham Qeshm Trading Co. In 2013, Ahmad Tea experienced a tough time in the face of high inflation and devaluation of local currency, resulting in inflated retail prices in local currency terms. Some shop keepers declined to stock Ahmad Tea, and this reduced availability caused a short-term losses of share. On the top of this, smuggling and counterfeit products are an ongoing issue and threat.

Emerging markets tend to present a relatively high risk in terms of political change and unpredictability, compared to developed markets. Ukraine is also an important market for Ahmad Tea, and the current unstable political situation in this country inevitably poses problems. It is understandable that Ahmad Tea has started to explore opportunities in its British home market, as a more stable alternative.

Designs on the Future, Now. What will Shape Laundry Care in 2030 and Beyond?

Ian_BellAnalyst Insight by Ian Bell, Head of Home Care Research

View Ian Bell's profile on LinkedIn

2030 is a fairly arbitrary date to set in the context of gazing into the future. Much can change, but it is still possible to predict, with at least some degree of confidence, what will be shaping the world of laundry care come 2030.

While consideration of a futuristic “Star Trek” outlook for laundry practice, in which machines self-regulate, self-dose and communicate with their load for optimal washing performance, has its merits, this future will likely affect very few of us. In this case, the future is already here right now, just not evenly distributed.

Sustainability is another obvious consideration for the 2030 world, but so much has been written and spoken about the subject that another rehash of the subject is likely to bring up little that is new or insightful.

The Future of Laundry Care

Laundry care was worth almost US$100 billion in 2014 and has doubled in size in the last fifteen years. Laundry is one of the fastest growing FMCG categories. However, moving toward 2030, changing demographic profiles will alter the way consumers interact with laundry products and appliances.

Scotts Acquires Solus Brands

EURO_NT_Jack.Skelly_LThumbWith Jack Skelly, Research Analyst

Scotts Miracle-Gro’s UK subsidiary, The Scotts Company, recently purchased the Solus brands which includes Yeoman hand tools.  Although Scott’s is the leading garden care company in the world, it lacks a competitive hand tools brand. Yeoman will fill a gap in Scott’s brand portfolio in the UK, and if this move is successful, Scott’s can adapt the strategy worldwide.

Three Challenges Answered by Procter and Gamble’s Divestment Strategy

 

Procter and Gamble’s decision to divest 100 brands falls in line with the company’s mantra of efficiency and innovation but also aims to answer three key challenges the company is facing. First, by focusing on key brands only, Procter and Gamble is attempting to stay relevant in developed economies where markets are often saturated. Second, P&G has fallen by the wayside in emerging markets and the divestment is a way to focus more attention to a select few brands in these economies. Third, the key brands P&G are left will compete with local players in select markets.

Procter and Gamble to Divest 100 Brands

Procter and Gamble announced they would divest 100 brands over the next two years, a move in line with the company’s ongoing restructuring process. One of the challenges that P&G faces is that the company does not have sufficient coverage across the pricing spectrum in comparison to its rivals, and by freeing up resources by divesting brands P&G may attempt to broaden its presence in both premium and value products.

Overview of Q2 2014 New Product Launches in Home Care

Emily PottsAnalyst Insight by Emily Potts - Contributing Analyst

The second quarter of 2014 has, like the three months before it, seen plenty of product activity in home care as manufacturers seek to continue the momentum in the category. This summary highlights some of the most interesting new product launches and upgrades, with an eye on wider home care trends.

Sniffing out Opportunity in Laundry Care

After an extended period in which format innovation dominated laundry care, fragrance has been steadily returning to the agenda. In the UK, Unilever’s Comfort Exhilarations has been re-launched as Comfort Creations, with three new luxury scent variants - Honeysuckle & Sandalwood, Indian Rose & Musk and Snapdragon & Patchouli – while Unilever’s Surf has unveiled a new exotic scent variant, Surf Wild Flowers & Morning Dew. Likewise in the US, Procter & Gamble has unveiled Bounce Bursts laundry scent booster, added directly to the wash to give a long-lasting scent.

It was inevitable that the focus on format innovation seen in laundry care over the last couple of years could not be sustained indefinitely and that fragrance would eventually return to the fore as a means of differentiation and adding value for leading brands. With no fresh rival to liquid tablet detergents looking likely anytime soon, it is probable that the rest of 2014 will be seen out with fragrance at the fore.
