Summary French consumers are atypical in their food and drink preferences, unlike English and Germans who respond better when it comes to experimenting with innovations. They tend to put a great emphasis on "naturalness" in general rather than functionality, regardless the segment. Additionally, taste has a significant impact on their response to new products. Key Findings -?"Failure Case Study: Nestl? Nesfluid" highlights the launch of a functional drink made with coconut water and whey protein in France in 2010. The range comprised six variants, with each targeted at different health needs. These were Renforce (Reinforce), Vitalise (Vitality), Equilibre (Balance), Body, Rayonne (Radiant), and Protect. -?The product was positioned as a "hydranutrition" drink, a concept that was not clear to French consumers and failed to attract their attention.

And finally, a perceived lack of flavor was one of the critical reasons for the failure of the range. -?Nestl? not only targeted the mass market too soon but also failed to meet the needs of French consumers. Keeping the message clear and respecting the value perceptions of the target consumer base are key to success. Synopsis -?"Failures Case Study: Nestl?
