HOFSTEDE CULTURAL DIMENSION
LOW CONTEXT CULTURE
SERVICE AND EMPOWERMENT
WAY OF DOING BUSINESSES
MELTING POT, LESS CULTURE DIVERSITY
What aspects of U.S. culture and of Indian culture may have been causes of Coke’s difficulties in India?
INDIA VS USA
HIGH CONTEXT CULTURE
Different ways and styles of communication
Miscommunication in the spoken and writen language
Different way of expressing their language commands during the contact with the India government.
Direct , explicit
Focus on empowerment issue and service
India, a developing country which is still striving in poverty is very much in traditional thinking leads to the difficulties of Coke's survival in India
Indians concern great values to trust and quality
following Rule and regulation as per Indian standards, where environment standards is less stringent.
Follow the rules and regulations as per home country specially in environment and social standards
India 's interference in stopping Coke's operations due to the villagers' accusation of the water shortage and contamination caused by Coca-Cola
HIGH CULTURE DIVERSITY
Fully developed with primarily western culture
Big & poor developing country with cultural niche : South, North & Northest
Rural consumption habit and buying capacity are different from urban people.
Flavor preferences are different between two countries
Law in US are much more wholesome
Therefore Coca Cola Should have……..
1. Proactively stopped temporary operation in Kerala plant and recall all pesticide bottles from market
Coca Cola should proactively
stopped their operations plant
recall all pesticide bottles
from market even if they did not agree.
This would mitigate all controversies and the company could have
gained consumers confidence
The example of Tylenol Case in 1980 when they proactively recalled all products. This gave the company very
short term loss
, but in return the company gained
long term trust, respect and also profit.
2. Be vocal, transparent and call for press conference
In Kerala the literacy rate is high as at
against the all India literacy rate of
This implies people are aware on
Coca Cola should immediately
confront the media, local government
run campaign and PR
on issues such as
health and environment
and that they care and are equally concerned.
3. Further investigation on water depletion
They should have taken the allegation of ground water depletion into consideration and take
proactive measures to further investigate .
If it was found true then take measures to
compensate the local communities.
It must be noted that in Kerala most of the population relies on agriculture.
4. Mutual understanding with CSE and state of government
Instead of accusing CSE for faulty results, Coca should
mutually agree with the CSE and Karela Pollution board
take action together
Test the samples
of the soft drinks and bottled water across India by
reputable institutions and abroad
to assure families that Coca-Cola products are
safe to consume in India.
5. CSR campaign by celebrity endorsement
Coca Cola should have used a
and run an
immediate ad campaign on CSR related activities
Indian have always been in admiration of the stars of the bollywood
The main message should convey that they
care about communities and the environment
promise to take several actions
to illuminate he allegations they currently hold
COCA-COLA - DEFENSE STRATEGY
Coca-Cola CEO stated:
Coca Cola –Defense Strategy
As a result ………
Coca-cola bottling plants in Plachimada in Kerala & Mehdiganj in Uttar Pradesh pass on sludge as fertilizer causing
health and environmental damage.
depletion of water table
reduced the availability of water
for irrigation purposes which is devastating local communities.
The plant was accused of
exploiting and polluting ground water with toxic metals.
Coca-Cola bottled water and drinks manufactured in New Delhi and Mumbai
India’s economic status
India's economic growth is expected to remain robust in 2012 and 2013, despite likely headwind of double-dip recessions in Europe and the US.
As per the world bank report, during this time of global recession the India’s economy was less affected.
The Gross Domestic Product per capita in India was last recorded at 3649.53 US dollars in 2011and consumer spending in India increased to 9298.39 INR Billion in the fourth quarter of 2012
India’s Social Status
New research from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) shows India will become a nation of upwardly mobile middle-class households that will surpass Germany as the world's fifth largest consumer market
In India the new consumer market in emerging as the middle class segment in growing. Evidence shows that as income increases, the amount of discretionary spending and variety of these discretionary spending increases (Saxena, 2010).
India’s population in 2012 is 1260 million
The total carbonated soft drink market is estimated at 284 million crates or $1billion
The market is seasonal
On average the monthly consumption is 4.9 million crates during off peak and 5.2 millions crate during peak
Coca Cola’s market share
Coca-Cola has an estimated market share of close to 9% in India, while rival Pepsi has nearly 15%.
According to industry estimates, Coca-Cola has close to a 58% share of the market, compared with Pepsico's 38% due to Coca-Cola's other drinks, especially Thums Up and Sprite
In 2012, Coca Cola’s sales jumped to 20% in first quarter.
PRODUCT DIVERSIFICATION - JUICES, TEA, COFFEE
Urban young adults and teenagers - getting more health, obesity aware, rejecting carbonated drinks
A survey in metropolitan cities of India found that 79% respondent refused carbonated drinks
Demand for fresh juices increased and coffee consumption in India has doubled over the last 10 years
Change Marketing Strategy
The current marketing strategy is mostly focused on rural market.
"Thanda Matlab Coca-Cola” firmly established Coke in India. This vague term diluted the beverage.
Hence a new positioning is required so that consumers associate Coca Cola as a socially and environmentally responsible company.
Create different and separate IMC planning for rural and urban areas.
Shift of production plants
Coca cola’s current plantation are Rajasthan, Plachimada, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh
These areas are dessert and have droughts and the communities complain for being affected due to Coca Cola’s ground water extraction
Therefore, Coca Cola should shift their production in areas near the sea areas such as West Bengal, Andar Pradesh
Alternative water extraction procedure
Coca- Cola has taken initiatives to improve drinking water situation like WWF
According to case, Coca Cola’s India report they will bring “net zero” use of ground water as they are extracting rain water
But still in 2013 they are still using ground water for their drinks
Alternative water extraction should be implemented and ensure zero ground water extraction
Also desalination of sea water surged more than a decade ago as the technology became more efficient and cost-competitive, Coca cola being a monster company can also invest in doing so.
Increase PR and networking with state governments, local NGOs and media
Perform Philanthropic CSR activates as promised
Coca Cola publishes the sustainability report every year.
The company claims to work for community, economic growth, water management, social development.
Still coca cola faced charges over its bottling operation in Palakkad district, which campaigners say has caused environmental damage in 2011 as per BBC
Need to ensure that they perform their philanthropic CSR activities as promised
Changes Coca-cola needs to make to increase and sustain market share in India
" If pesticides are in ground water then why are we only being challenged? It is because of who we are?"
Coca-Cola denied charges and quoted that the allegations were motivated by
The company stated the ban of closing the plant in Kerela was based on
flawed test results.
Coca-cola promoted on website arguing that the beverage industry was responsible for just
0.0002% of total water usage in India.
Coca-cola fought back pesticide issues by stating that Coca-Cola product had been tested using
stringent EU and it said it is safe.
“Is there anything better for you to drink?"
India’s Beverage Industry
Keep good and cordial relationship with the government parties of all the states in India
Work together with the NGOs more often for sustainability
Help improve the government standards in India
Ensure to be vocal an transparent to media and take responsibility of their actions
Challenges for MNCs in working with different countries
High transaction costs: uncertainty in the market environment and the opportunistic behaviour of market agents.
Consequences of bounded rationality: - limited knowledge about the paternalistic attitude of the Chinese Government in nurturing indigenous soft drink makers. It was certainly difficult for Coca-Cola to fully appreciate the financial difficulties that were faced by some of its local partners in expanding business operations.
Further intensified by opportunism and uncertainty in the market environment. To reduce the impact of these constraints, a change in Coca-Cola’s operations was required.
COCA-COLA IN CHINA
(1979-1992) highlights 4 major challenges to the company's long term development strategy:
Chinese market was
, and the
wholesale and distributional systems were outdated
Coca-Cola was the de facto wholesaler of concentrate, and
did not have access to the operation of the bottling plants
Coca-Cola was not permitted to enter into JV bottling business with its local partners until 1985
The local partners were
too poor to finance further business expansion
How Coca-Cola overcome challenges
Internalized market transactions through a strategy of long-term investment
Increased control of production and domestic distribution
The acquisition of majority stakes in the bottling plants
Teamed up with two foreign bottlers under a franchise agreement.
Synergistic effect of pooling the resources of Coca-Cola, its local partners and its foreign bottlers was high, and it delivered revenue-enhancing and cost-reducing benefits.

Coca-cola faced some difficult challenges in India regarding social and ethical issues
Criticized by Indian government, NGOs and international environmentalists.
Consumers ran anti-cocacola campaign & refused to drink Coca-cola.
