Identify the different levels of the product. Discuss the attempts made by the management to come up with an augmented product. There are three different levels of the product:

The core of the product
Represents the benefit of this product, the benefit that makes it valuable to its consumers, in this case the reputation of Godiva Chocolatier (high end brand).

Is “Godiva Gems”, the tangible, physical good.

The augmented product
The non physical part of it, is the fact that it makes a premium quality brand available in supermarkets at a lower price and the fact that it is accessible for everyday consumption. 2. Do you think that the Godiva brand could be damaged after the introduction of the new product to the lower end of the market?
Do you see any risk of cannibalization of this line extension for the existing product line? Why or why not? Explain. The Godiva brand will not be damaged by “Godiva Gems” because the marketing environment has changed and an adjustment was called for.
The 80 years old reputation of Godiva is well established and it cannot be shacked by the launch of its low-end product.
Also, as the consumer behavior changed because of the unstable economy so did Godiva had to change with it.
Godiva forecast will be in 2000 supermarket year by year.
There might be a small   risk of cannibalization of this line extension for the existing product line, but if this occurs it can be used as a strategy to capture a larger market of a different market segment.
The risking the Godiva brand in consumer’s mind.

Packaging by theme called “collection”. 5. Godiva is entering new markets like China and Turkey. What strategy would you offer to the company in its global product planning decisions in terms of standardization versus adaptation? Godiva should not change it strategy.

They have to improve their strategy to attract more global customer.
(Market entry, Creation of new market, Product specialization, Culture and etc..)
If they trust with the Godiva brand, they would not looking for other chocolates brand. Standardization :
We don’t really believe in the standardization of Godiva products.
If we do the standardization, the expansion of Godiva products would stopped. It’s because we adapt the Godiva product by the market.
We have the specials product of Godiva of each market we enter and it could not be standardized.
For example, Turkey people like peanuts so we adapt it with the chocolate with more peanuts in Turkey. China people don’t really like milk, so we adapt the product specialization with less milk in the Godiva chocolates for China market. Adaptation :
#Adaptation of product specialization of China and Turkey culture.
Business culture
Celebration important days
Food style that really enjoy desserts (like sweet things)
#Adaptation of China and Turkey lifestyles.
Create the diets chocolates. So it will attract more girl teenagers to consume Godiva.
