Introduction of Dasani In The United Kingdom Dasani’s launch in Europe was an important part of Coca-Cola’s plan to challenge Nestle and Danone, which dominated the global bottled water market. According to AC Nielsen, the top 10 bottled water brand in the UK by value in 2003 included: Volvic (Danone), Evian (Danone), Highland Spring, Vittel (Nestle Waters), Buxton (Nestle Waters), Danone Activ (Danone), Strathmore (Constellation Brand), Perrier (Nestle Waters), Aqua Pura (Well Well Well), Private labels. (http://www.adbrands.net/sectors/sector_softdrinks .htm) Evidently, knowing the market situation in the UK, the Coca Cola hoped to conquer the British Market with its Dasani products. Dasani, launched in January 2004 in the UK at a budgeted cost of 7 million pounds.
This launch has turned out to be a complete disaster and all bottles of water had to be taken out of the stores. Rival water brands were rushing for the supermarket shelf space vacated by Dasani. Coca-Cola has had to cancel a huge sampling programme, believed to include 4 million bottles, and pull planned TV advertising. However, insiders suggest that the company’s media strategy has been on the back foot ever since newspapers disclosed the Dasani’s origins. It is believed advertising agency Lowe was forced to ditch a lifestyle-focused TV campaign at the last minute, and asked to devise a more “scientific” ad, explaining why Dasani was an improvement on tap-water (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2004/mar/20/me dicineandhealth.lifeandhealth).
