background as Trung Nguyen - a famous brand has long been well known but to
G7 sustainable development and claims No. 1 in Vietnam market Trung Nguyen
Corporation must have specific marketing strategy and large scale with the
advertising quality as well as images of G7 instant coffee.

PART II: MARKETING & MARKETING MIX STRATEGY OF G7
2.1. Marketing strategy
2.1.1. Market Penetration strategy
At the beginning, Trung Nguyen Coffee got failure in a long time when it entered to
Saigon market. Until 20/08/1998 they opened a coffee shop for 10 days free, Trung
Nguyen marked the first success. Understanding economic growth is slow, but people's
lives are improved but not changed the habit of spending plans, more saving for the
future ... so spending a difference amount to several hundred thousand Coffee shop and
sidewalk are considered a pretty thoroughly. It is noticed that, Trung Nguyen did not
hesitate to step into the market strategy with an act of faith formation for the potential
consumer. Trung Nguyen activities have introduced the product to customers and led to
enjoy coffee "Trung Nguyen style ". Six months later, the name of Trung Nguyen Coffee
has developed more than a business with 20 years seniority in the city of Buon Me
Thuot. Trung Nguyen has maintained the development of "Strategic Triangle". It can be
said Trung Nguyen is a successful of branding in Vietnam in recent years. Within 5 years,
from a small workshop in Buon Ma Thuot, Trung Nguyen has appeared over the world.
Trung Nguyen is almost fully exploited their advantages in an attractive market:
o Entering the market as the first company processing raw coffee in the market.

o Huge supplier and competitor give an opportunity to choose and decide the price
of product.
o Customers gradually formed the habit of using coffee at all times, providing the
market a huge demand and potential. Moreover, diverse target markets
stimulates growth of businesses, creates monopoly product.
2.1.2. Market expansion strategy
At the end of 2003, Trung Nguyen coffee products launched G7 and exported G7 to the
developed countries in the world. Trung Nguyen continued developing network with
600 cafes in Vietnam, 121 distributors, 7000 point of sales and 59.000 retail stores in
2004. December 2007, Trung Nguyen coffee combined with Dak Lak People's Committee
organized successfully the Coffee Culture Week in Hanoi and HCM City. In 2008, Trung
Nguyen continued launching new franchise systems in Vietnam and international. In
June 2009, Trung Nguyen started constructing the coffee factory with the modernist
technology in the world at ĐakLak. This is Trung Nguyen's efforts to confirm the value of
Trung Nguyen Coffee brand, Buon Ma Thuot coffee in world market.
After conquering the domestic market quickly with quality and style, unique, Trung
Nguyen started putting its brand in the market in the world with a franchise strategy for
the first time in Singapore 2000. However, their successful is only true when Trung
Nguyen coffee appeared in Japan next to 400 stores a total of 6000 stores Starbucks –
the largest corporation of Coffee in the U.S. and many brands of Japanese coffee.
Up to now, Trung Nguyen brand appear in Japan, Thailand, Singapore, China and the
Czech Republic. Trung Nguyen Coffee roasting is also present in supermarkets and other
stores in the U.S., Germany, Eastern Europe, France and Russia. Dang Le Nguyen Vu is
expanding contracts to seek market share for Trung Nguyen in 15 countries including
Germany, Australia, Canada, Taiwan, Malaysia, Philippines.
In festival coffee to introduce G7 to customer, Trung Nguyen has new strategy for two
brands are G7 and Nescafe. They’re prepared available free of charge to those who

Nescafe, 11% vote for Nescafe. After this plan, Trung Nguyen advertised their products

“Vietnamese give priority to use Vietnam goods”, Trung Nguyen Coffee has more and
more opportunities to penetrate, develop and expand the domestic market, foreign
market, also.

However, it’s easy to see that the campaign between G7 and Nescafe is unequal. Nescafe
is a famous brand of Nestle Group and it is controlling market coffee in Vietnam
(Vinacafe, more). G7 is a new product on the market. But the marketing strategy
opposite with Nescafe of G7 is contrast to the principles of marketing strategies for
competitive advantage. This is the first mistake of Trung Nguyen coffee and G7. The
second mistake is not clearly about target customers. Trung Nguyen coffee should find
out about empty markets, market segments, customer segment target. Because target of
Trung Nguyen strategy leads to most of consumers in Vietnam but each person has style
and habit is not the same, some people drink coffee to relaxed, someone drinks coffee to
awake in working or studying, they do not care much about brand or type of coffee,
someone, in contrast, they drinks coffee because the famous brand, it makes them
become professor.
2.1.3. Product development strategy
Before 2003, coffee is the market of MacCoffee, Vinacafe and some foreign coffee.
Not only entry to international market with roast coffee, Dang Le Nguyen Vu really makes
business amazing when he launched G7 instant coffee in 2003 November. The name of G7
instant coffee in his idea is a name easy access international but non-international outlook. It
has mission to conquer, dominates market of 7 developed countries. G7 starts against with
foreigner of great aristocratic family about instant coffee by “G7 instant coffee festival” in
Reunification Palace. Trung Nguyen has changed market share instant coffee in short time:
market share of Nescafe reduced from over 50% to 45%, G7 accounted for 21%, remain of
other brands. Their goal was not only market shares but also beat the "extended" Foreigners
in Vietnam before the world. Trung Nguyen exported G7 to develop countries in the world.
Before, name of Trung Nguyen gradually saturated with the customers both domestic and
foreign. G7 instant coffee has contributed significantly in the redistribution of market share in
the industry. Trung Nguyen is also building plants with values several million dollars to
develop further this product. So, with G7 product development strategy, it brings reputation
for Trung Nguyen. More people use product of Trung Nguyen specially G7. Beside Trung
Nguyen created believable for customers. This strategy makes customer trust and select “Café
Viet” instead of foreign coffee. Thus, this strategy has strong influenced not only domestic
but also foreign market. It has changed market share of coffee in domestic and expanded in
the world. Nowadays, G7 is a product of Trung Nguyen Coffee and a popular brand of coffee
in Vietnam.

2.1.4. Diversification Strategy
Not stopping with product development strategy, Trung Nguyen also exploited ethnicity to
promote for the G7 "3in1. Dang Le Nguyen Vu presented very well for distributors, agents
know the advantages and limitations of the Trung Nguyen. Based on Vietnamese culture,
coffee brings for customers different sense. Trung Nguyen has researched and developed 30
kinds of coffee preparation of individual taste, created 9 levels of different flavors to their
products. G7 was invested carefully from the packaging, promotion system with the ambition
to conquer the market in 7 developed countries.
April and May, 2007, Trung Nguyen continued offering a new idea for the G7 "3in1". This
was advertisement film compared red cup (which is an image associated with the brand
Nescafe), marked "17% of Buon Ma Thuot coffee" with the cup of the G7 "3in1" marked
"89% coffee of Buon Ma Thuot. In 2007 August, Trung Nguyen continued giving
advertisement film compared to the red cup, but this time the cup G7 "3in1" security seal
"reality Buon Ma Thuot coffee."
Trung Nguyen Coffee introduced G7 "2in1" with the message "help to think better". Most
recently, 2010 April, G7 launched messages: "G7 with Vietnamese aspirations".
With the diversification strategy, Trung Nguyen could compete with Nescafe and Vinacafe. It
helps Trung Nguyen create and develop their products into the market. Besides this strategy
helps Trung Nguyen can get high revenue from their products. This strategy also impacts to
Vinacafe incentives marketing activities. Moreover, it brings reputation for Trung Nguyen
and makes the customer believe and select Trung Nguyen coffee not only domestic but also
international. It also contributes a small part into the development economic of Viet Nam.
2.2. Marketing mix strategy

achieve the main marketing in target markets. 4P of marketing mix are product, price,
place, promotion.
The factors influence Marketing Mix:

- There are 200 suppliers for the G7 chain stores in our country.
- Highlights of G7 Mart, according to Trung Nguyen's vision are to satisfy small shopping
habits, retail purchase of Vietnamese, and usually buy near the house.

However,G7 Mart overcomes the disadvantages of traditional distribution is the grocery
store when the price is low, uniform, ensuring the same as a supermarket and IT
applications in the management process.
Supermarkets

system.

PART III: EVALUATION AND RECOMMENDATION
3.1. Strength and weakness of marketing strategy
3.1.1. Strength
 Quality was the first to go under the franchise system, wide distribution system.


Better information channels, PR



Strong financial resource from Trung Nguyen corporation



Variety of products, from primary to middle and high-class products.
16

Marketing strategy of Trung Nguyen Corporation


EBOOKBKMT.COM



Convenient, good atmosphere, clean place and attractive decorations.



Diversified, delicious taste have been satisfying different demands of customer in
the world



Famous coffee brand name of Viet Nam, so many people know it, they are not
only Vietnamese but also foreign

3.1.2. Weaknesses
 Trung Nguyen Corporate is implemented of the franchise network too wide
range. The management and supervision are weak. There are too many projects
and ambitions in the same time leading to scattered power, capital, intellectual.


It’s becoming heterogeneous in many aspects. Can clearly see the difference in
price, quality and supply of coffee at the bar serving Starbucks. The level of
investment in space is decorated with a huge difference.



Trung Nguyen is the strategic use of price differentiation, which means "the price
that our customers do." The objective of this strategy is to maximize profit. This
does not fit much in franchising.

3.1.3. The difficulties and challenges
The introduction of Trung Nguyen coffee products G7 is a concern. As soon as this
product was launched, Trung Nguyen made a series of marketing activities to advertise
new products. G7 has earned certain success during the early and marketing strategy is
to declare against with Nescafe. It is easy to see that the flight G7 - Nescafe is unequal.
Nescafe is a famous brand of Nestle Group has a dominant coffee market in Vietnam (in
addition to Vinacafe). G7 is just a new product on the market. But the marketing strategy
of G7 confrontation with Nescafe is gone against to the principles of marketing
strategies for competitive advantage. This is the first mistake of Trung Nguyen and G7.
As a latecomer in the field of instant coffee, Trung Nguyen should find void market,
segments market, and segment target customer. Because styles and habits of each
person when drinking coffee is not the same. Some people drink their coffee is simply
the habit of drinking coffee to awake in work or study, they do not care much about
brand or type of coffee, as long as the coffee to drink. However, there are people who
drink coffee are for relax and entertainment after hard working or simply they enjoy
their favorite coffee of a certain brand. Sometimes, people drink coffee because of wellknown brands of the company, they will feel more sophisticated, more professional style

EBOOKBKMT.COM

through a coffee brands. Meanwhile, Trung Nguyen's strategy will target the vast
majority of consumers in Vietnam. So, maybe the second mistake of Trung Nguyen and
G7 is not clearly defined target customers.
Trung Nguyen is gradually in danger of losing credibility when cannot control other
operations of franchised dealers.
3.2. Recommendation
3.2.1. For Trung Nguyen Corporation
 Complete management method in franchise system.
 Specialization role of each member in marketing system.
 Trung Nguyen need new resource, new spirit
 Need to establish a new brand of justice to the coffee growing countries in the
world
 Establish mechanisms to bring the harmony of interests for all concerned

 Development of retail stores a more professional style
 Re-established brand with deep and ethnic pride.
 Accelerating development of distribution network based system distributors,
dealers and stores available on the market
 Development of quality human resources, IT systems to ensure quality of service
of the company
3.2.2. For government
 Party and Government leaders need to make policy development and realization
of the project, with its own policies for "ecological economy in Dak Lak."
 Create mechanisms and policies to support resources.
 Make decisions with political for regional economic development.
 Increased competition for retailers in the distribution system.
