Questions about brands

December 2009

question 2 dr oetker and ancel
Question 2: Dr Oetker and Ancel

A French name is a synonym for food quality

French are proud of their cuisine, they would not accept German food products which are seen as “inferior” (fat food: sausage)

French people like to keep their ways of saying things and their own expressions

French people may prove resistant to change

Consumer loyalty to the brand (i.e. being used to the brand name): people would have to adapt

French people may be nationalist/patriotic: they may like to buy products (that look) “made in France”

question 2 dr oetker and france
Question 2: Dr Oetker and France

Pronunciation and phonology problems (‘tk’)

Dr Oetker sounds German + valuation of Dr title in Germany => such credibility may not transfer to France

Dr Oetker connotes the medical/pharmaceutical domain (Is it food?) => more appropriate for drugs than for food

Dr Oetker sells pizza: association pizza and Germany not necessarily adequate (product ethnicity issue)

Feeling of security to buy known brands

People don’t like multinational brands taking over local companies

Less packaging and marketing costs (however insignificant)

Historical problems between French and German (WW1, WW2…) => not a real problem. Times have changed.
