The LimoPani Marketing Mix

I. Introduction

Kings Food (Pvt.) Ltd, the company behind LimoPani, saw the huge market of flavoured powdered energy drinks with only few major players like Tang and Energile. In order to come out with a unique product in this market, they conducted a market research. In Pakistan’s generally hot weather, lemon juice is traditionally consumed in water to provide refreshment from the sweltering heat of the sun. You will often find “thailay walas” near bus stops or populated places selling these drinks, locally termed as “sikanjbeen” or “nibopani”. Thus, King’s Food gave birth to LimoPani as a direct competitor of Tang and Energile in powdered energy drinks market.

By using a brand name which is understood all over Pakistan, the marketer brilliantly enlarged the target market, since the description of the product is in the product name itself.

пÑ"? Packaging

Product packaging is nicely done. It is distributed displayed well with sachets, leading to “impulse buying”. LimoPani’s packaging contains sachets of 25g, the glass jars of 250g and 500g and tin cans of 1000g and 2500g.
