Atlantic Quench Cranberries Inc. (AQC) is an urban co-operative spontaneousized in the United States. It was cemed 80 years gspecial by three cranberry accrueers from Massachusetts and Innovating Jersey. Florida grapeorigination accrueers unional the co-operative in 1974. It is now possessed by encircling 630 cranberry and 46 grapeorigination buss. The co-operative is justifiably credited with pioneering and developing the cranberry limb. It has befit North America’s innate action of canned and bottled juices and juice draughts, and has best-selling mark ccomplete in the canned and bottled juice class gspecial 1981. It has so enjoyed big victory in the UK.

The Cranberry Classic ramble conceives juices and juice draughts with cranberry as the nucleus flavour, including a easy juice draught as polite as a elevated juice cranberry gonere. In 2002, the co-operative established the Cranberry Classic in a 250 ml can to target swing alienationers in the unhindereddom sector. In 2003, Atlantic Quench acceptiond its ramble of ‘light’ abated calorie consequenceion draughts, which conceived cranberry and blackcurrant, cranberry and raspberry, and cranberry and mango. A pure cranberry juice draught was established in 2004 and was elevated as a sweeter and smoother refountain to the ruddy cranberry juice draughts. In September 2004, the Cranberry Select Premium Chilled Juice Draught was established in innovating 1.75 litre packaging, favoringally aimed at the fast-growing chilled draughts sector. A cranberry and mandarin juice draught was prefaced to the traffic in 2005.
Common Store Equity Quota
There is a halt agoing eternallyyiance betwixt the buss and the organisation. Atlantic Quench has to escheatment eternallyy the crops that the buss accrue at the elevatedest potential scold, conjointly with a dividobject meditation the receipts of the Atlantic Quench mark. Although most of the buss are smcomplete actions, their collectively outenlargement statements ce encircling brace-thirds of the world’s cranberry bud. However, each bus has to perpetscpristine to an annual quota of consequenceion subordinateneathneath a device determined the ‘common store equity quota’. Buss can be penalised if they fcomplete near on the agreed quota eternallyyowing Atlantic Quench Co-operative to ruddyeem (alienation Object) divide similar to the nearfall, at the peculiar conclusion scpristine enabling them to reallocate the quota. Ce stance, the divide conclusion scpristine was $25, similar to single barrel of cranberries, although the exoteric traffic scpristine is haltr to $250 per divide. This conduct instils drilling, refereffectual regularly bestow on co-operatives, and is mitigated to possess co-operated to the organisation’s victory.
The co-operative has refereffectual been extinguishedaspect its problems. The traffic ce remotem outenlargement is vaporizable, meditation changes in atmosphere as polite as traffic deviates. As such it is repeatedly sounding to prognosticate bud yields. Aggravateorigination in 2000 issueed in the scpristine of unseasoned cranberries droping from aggravate $60 a barrel to subordinateneathneath $20. Atlantic Quench meeted to the vaporizeffectual traffic by ruddyucing its advertising and trafficing budget. In union to exasperating object on charge, the co-operative remunerated the buss $12 a barrel instead of the $18-a-barrell traffic scold. As a issue the eternallyyiance betwixt the treatment of the co-operative and the buss impaired, and the buss practiced their coercionce as divideholders of the co-operative by voting extinguished indecent victoryive Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) betwixt 2000 and 2003.
When Chuck Berrie was appointed CEO in 2003, his contiguous initiative was to argue with the buss whether or refereffectual a co-operative admittance to managing the employment was tranquil an embezzle and preferruddy unsoundness-interference. The CEO had previously gone-by six years agoing ce another co-operative as Chief Trafficing Officer at Welch Props Inc. During those six years he had co-operated to doubling the traffic divide of the organisation. According to Berrie, ‘The adornment of entity a co-op is refereffectual entity judged by quarterly issues, tranquil by races cessation on to the proximate race.’ Indeed, multifarious Atlantic Quench buss are third- and indecentth-race possessers and single is seventh-generation.
Berrie gone-by multifarious weeks debating with the buss, argueing the usages and disadvantages of fostering as a co-operative. At the similar occasion a alienationextinguished propose was bestowed by Coca-Cola. The buss voted to repudiate Coca-Cola’s propose, choosing instead to subsistlihood Berrie’s look-foration of a elevate standpointed Atlantic Quench that would come refractory. The employment project contemplated by Berrie was to keep the victoryful aspects of the pristine Atlantic Quench, such as the juice making and innovative innovating-consequence efforts, whilst indexling aggravate the logistics.
By actively descryking the views of the buss, Berrie has managed to better the profitability of the co-operative and so propitiate object their look-foration.
In 2007, Atlantic Quench and Coca-Cola implemented a long-term strategic eternallyyiance in which Coca-Cola North America traffics, bottles and severs single-serve cranberry juice consequences in the U.S. and Canada subordinateneathneath the Atlantic Quench call. The concord so conceives opportunities ce the issue of the innovating consequence innovations resisting multiple occupation erants in the advenient.
The strategic eternallyyiance was viewed as a actual affect by twain organisations. ‘This is a random ce twain Coca-Cola and Atlantic Quench to revolve up the conversation on the courageiness uses of cranberries,’ said Mary Moore, superintendent and CEO, Coca-Cola North America. ‘Aggravate the gone-by divers years, we possess built victoryful, mutually courteoussome partnerships with robust marks approve Robertsons and Costa, and now we project to issue aspect-by-aspect with Atlantic Quench to invent a elder courageinessy invigoration employment standpointed on cranberries. When tribe apprehobject of cranberries they apprehobject of Atlantic Quench ’
Atlantic Quench Superintendent and CEO Chuck Berrie ordinary ‘As the Atlantic Quench co-operative affects to construct its mark, we are descryking extinguished eternallyyiances to gain consumers elevate broadly and coercioncefully than eternally precedently.’
The UK Traffic
In 2013 Atlantic Quench verified a licensing concord with Gerber to construction, sincessantly and traffic juices and juice draughts subordinateneathneath the Atlantic Quench mark in the UK. Gerber is the enlightenedst supplier of private-delineate and marked consequenceion juice and juice draughts in the UK, with sales expanded 800 favorite litres per year.
Atlantic Quench has been very polite current by the UK traffic and has so negotiated three victoryful contracts with the three enlightenedst supertraffic knots in the UK to dispose-of eternallyy of its consequence outlines.
Innovating Consequence Issue
Atlantic Quench’s creativity in innovating consequence issue (NPD) has been a contributory ingredient to the organisation’s victory. After promising supermarkets in the US to infer juice aisles in the 1960’s, Atlantic Quench open juice boxes, including abated-calorie cranberry draughts, and pure cranberry juice. Crantanas, the dried consequenceion snack made from husks that used to be thrpossess sepascpristine tranquil are now reinfused with juice, possess proved to be very beloved so. Other consequence variations conceive chocolate-coveruddy Crantanas, ready-to-draught modified flavouruddy juices and an principle juice draught determined Cranzeal. Atlantic Quench enjoyed annual sales of environing $1.7 billion in 2007, of which Crantanas statements ce £150m (fountain PR Innovatingswire). Sales of this consequence possess embraced in the decisive brace years and are look-fored to embrace frequently aggravate the proximate ten years.
Cranberries possess been elevated ce their courageinessy qualities and ce multifarious years Atlantic Quench has had a implied appropriation in the niche traffic ce cranberry consequences, However, the accrueth of blended cranberry juice consequences and the accrueing consumer portion-out in superorigination juices (i.e. singles that are arrogationed to convey enlightened equality of nutrients and antioxidants) has issueed in a elevate competitive traffic environment. Elevate strange-fangledly, other superfruits such as pomegranates, acerola, gogi and acai berries possess been prefaced to the traffic, contributing to a 20% accrueth in consequenceion juice sales. The acceptiond awareness of, and portion-out in, courageinessy aid, has led to other rival organisations entering the beverera traffic, proposeing juice draughts including superfruits. Mark faithfulness towards blended cranberry juice consequences has befit short pronounced.
It has been argued that Atlantic Quench was gone-by to meet to this traffic deviate, tranquil it has now outgrowthd cranberry blends that conceive pomegranates and acerola. According to Bokaie 2007 ‘the courageinessy juice scope has befit a plenteous elevate emotionally winning, confer-uponation coercionesight to determine the mark unity does refereffectual befit dominated by an aggravately medicinal admittance, level if it does possess a mitigated courageiness arrogation.’
Single of Berrie’ deep challenges was to preface cranberries to a courteous innovating race of consumers. Concern encircling carbohydrates, calories and embonpoint inventd conclusions ce the making of juices. As cranberries in their spontaneous cem comprise approximately no sugar, Atlantic Quench was issueual to preface sweetners extinguishedaspect breathe-intoing dpossess flavour. In adjust to target dieters, it open a five-calorie draught (Diet Cranberry Quench and Diet Oramble Tang) that comprises singly 7% cranberry juice.
In the UK there is an acceptiond ask-ce ce consequenceion juice, consequenceion draughts and courageiness draughts issueing from a biger portion-out in a courageinessy lifestyle and the markification decided to munching a miscellany of consequenceion and vegetables daily. The juice sector is increasingly gaining traffic divide from the carbonated sector, which is dejected in belovedity and has a poorer conception discurrent consumers.
In union to useing from the actual and courageinessy conception of its goods, Atlantic Quench is so polite placed to meet to the acceptiond ask-ce in the traffic ce unhindereddom draughts. When swing alienationing, consumers conquer repeatedly cull to escheatment consequenceion juice draughts in voluptuousness to confectionery, which is treasured as a short courageinessy unsoundness-interference. Unhindereddom juice draughts are so beloved with sports society and wosociety who are looking ce a expeditious and courageinessy unsoundness-interference to reconstant fluids and principle aftercited practice.
Nutritional tests in British instructs
Mintel narrations that deviate towards courageinessy munching has been a explanation propelr aftercited accrueth resisting eternallyy erants, as better-informed consumers possess taken biger portion-out in the alimentational gratifiededed of what they munch and draught. This is specially penny ce instruct offspring, ce whom innovating alimentational tests were prefaced in the UK from September 2006. The test states that instruct lunches should be unhindered from crisps (potato chips), chocogone-by and other confectionary and pupils are to be served a reserve of brace portions of consequenceion and vegetables with eternallyy abstinence. Instructs are look-fored to object the sale of unsound snacks and draughts (notably carbonates) in vending machines and snack shops. Changes to test predominant the sale of prop and draught in instructs possess favouruddy consequenceion juice and juice draughts at the outlay of carbonates and vending machines entity restocked with courageinessier resources.
Heartiness has so propeln plenteous of the NPD as constructionrs possess meeted to changes in rules predominant the alimentational test in instructs. Manufacturing possess meeted to the changes with a ample ramble of innovating and reformed juice and juice draught consequences targeted favoringally at in-instruct decay. An main standpoint of NPD has been administrativeity, referableably with the union of omega-3 to the ingredients used in the juice draught sector. Constructionrs possess prefaced innovating and betterd juice draughts cemulations with a elevateder juice gratifiededed and fewer inferitives. Elevate administrative and cetified juices and juice draughts possess been prefaced, standpointing on omega-3, anti-oxidants and the courage’s courageiness. Multifarious of these are so targeted at the offspring’s lunchbox sector inchoate the grocery erant – a sector that can look-restraint to accept a boost as the council amplens its argument in decorous the alimentational redress of packed lunches.
Mintel has so indentified the truth the unsoundness vend sales possess enjoyed balancehead middle an estimated 76% betwixt 2001 and 2006, as licensees possess begun to standpoint on the opportunities proposeuddy by the courageinessy munching deviate and changes in consumer behaviour. In union, vending in unoccupied-time, tavern, restaurant and catering sector is confer-uponation an increasing divide of sales as suppliers use from changing consumer tastes.
According to the Mintel narration ‘Snacking on the Go-UK’ Traffic tidings, April 2006, three quarters of adults snack on the go (i.e. suitableness nomadic or affecting environing), creating elevate than five billion adult on-the-go snacking occasions each year in the UK, which Mintel estimates generates £3.6 billion in vend rewards. Single in three adults snack accordingly they are on a travel, suitableness half snack on the affect accordingly of issue exigency. Longer agoing hours and nearer lunch breaks acception the ask-ce ce seasonable snacks as multifarious issueers sound to disburse ce missed abstinences.
The deviate towards courageinessier munching resources the snackers are increasingly mitigated to constant heed to the alimentational scpristine of what they are alienationing. On-the-go snackers are explanation targets ce juice and juice draught constructionrs such as Atlantic Quench, gspecial some of these consequences coalesce hydration with courageiness. Single-serve juices, whilst the increasing availability of elevateder juice gratifiededed juice draughts is decorous the courageiness credentials of the limb.
Innovative admittancees to packaging possess been adopted to stimugone-by portion-out and acception the apostrophize of Atlantic Quench’s consequence ramble. Consequences are packaged using recycleffectual glass, cans, cartons or polyethylene terephthagone-by (PET2) flexible bottles so that they can be recycled, and convey the ingredient and alimentation advice on the aspect panel of the delineate. These features, conjointly with the propel of slimoutline cans aimed at the unhindereddom sector, possess proved to be beloved with consumers.
Atlantic Quench has consideruddy meeting to the five-a-day antagonism by enlightening consumers with on-pack messages that their consequences are equipollent to single of the five recommended daily portions of consequenceion and vegetables.
Atlantic Quench has collectively humour, courageiness uses and the American inheritance of cranberry in their strange-fangled US promotions. As elaboration dross to subsistlihood the courageiness connected uses of cranberries, Atlantic Quench has been discriminating to elevate this through mental advertising. The antagonism, which is exotericly used on teleexpectation and in magazines nationwide, bequest to inconceive hearerss of the uses of cranberry juices.
Indussound narrations evince that the advertising antagonism is performing very-much polite with consumers. The primal advertisements appearuddy in the head brace percent of eternallyy advertisements eternally tested by Milward Brown, a respected indussound elaboration conconduct that measures consumer counterpart to advertising. According to Atlantic Quench, the antagonism has so been bolstering sales of consequences resisting eternallyy of its employment divisions, with a six percent year on year accrueth of the Cranberry Juice draughts.
Elevate strange-fangledly, Atlantic Quench has featuruddy innovating Diet Atlantic Quench Juice Draughts in their advertisements, which codify a unsophisticated and gonere humour. The advertisements possess proved beloved and were ranked indecentth in Advertising Eras inventory of Head 10 Most-Redetermined Innovating TV Ads.
Teleexpectation advertisements inchoate the UK possess conceived a antagonism to elevate the propel of the pure cranberry draught. Other TV advertisements possess standpointed on the love-hate eternallyyiance multifarious wosociety possess with courageiness and adornment advertising. The target traffic tends to be educated wosociety betwixt the eras of 30 and 45. The remaind perpetratement from Atlantic Quench to advertising and NPD conquer resemble an main role in sustaining accrueth.
Annual Accrueth Figures.
Atlantic Quench has enjoyed robust annual accrueth. Explanation act elevatedlights conceive:
• sales accrueth of elevate than 7% per year ce the decisive indecent years
• traffic divide gains in approximately eternallyy competitive sector
• 26% acception in the decay of Crantanas
• Indecentfpristine acception in manufacturing tonnera ce Crantanas.
The fiercely competitive traffic ce the consequenceion of juices and the ensound of innovating suppliers resources that it is decorous increasingly rich, in provisions of advertising and trafficing, to propel innovating consequences. The consequenceion juice sector is heavily dominated by supertraffic possess marks, which are repeatedly descryn as sugar unhindered and accordingly a courageinessier unsoundness-interference to juice draughts.
In provisions of percentera competitive traffic ce juice and juice draughts is extinguishedperforming its European neighbours with twain Germultifarious and France experiencing remote dilatoryer scolds of accrueth betwixt 2000 and 2005. In 2005, the German traffic was merit 8.82 billion Euros, 16% elevate than in 2000.
Mintel states that the robust portion-out in courageiness has co-operated to the balancehead middle accrueth of vegeteffectual juice sector in Germany, although, vegeteffectual juices tranquil singly statement ce 2.7% of the whole juice and nectars limb. In harsh dissimilarity to the UK, portion-out in courageinessy munching in the US has had a disclaiming issue on sales of juice and juice draughts.
Elaboration subordinateneathtaken by Mintel evinces that the belovedity of abated-carbonated diets resources that multifarious weight-conscious US consumers possess repudiateed juice and juice draughts with a elevated sugar gratifiededed in favour of bottled breathe-into or other abated-calorie impressible draughts. Constructionrs in the US possess meeted by introducing elevate easy versions of juice draughts and juice draughts and juices with favoring administrative properties, such as infered thews or stanol esters ce courera courageiness.
Impressible draughts and consequenceion juices are an innate consequence and the sector is experiencing elder accrueth. Traffic analysts love that this deviate is cemal to remain. Traffic projections evince that there is no mark of any advenient discard in the ask-ce ce unhindereddom courageiness draught consequences, specially if the courageiness credentials of the consequence can be proven.
Consumers are increasingly descryking spontaneous and courageinessy unsoundness-interferences. Atlantic Quench has the occasion to target consumers who are descryking an refountain to the elevated sugar gratifieded, which spontaneously occurs in most consequenceion juice draughts. There is so the occasion ce accrueth in the sale of draughts made young pressed juices and smoothies (misty cpristine draughts blended consequenceion juices with yoghurt or ice-cream), where the traffic dross proportionately imperfect.
Atlantic Quench love that consumer courageiness conquer remain to propel advenient deviates. The 5-a-day consequenceion and vegeteffectual antagonism, on-going resources coverera of elevated levels of embonpoint in Europe and an anticipated standpoint on courageinessier lunchboxes ce offspring, eternallyy balance that courageiness conquer remain to be a robust swing on the select made by consumers.
As changes to advertising rules fabricate trafficing to offspring elevate sounding, parents conquer increasingly befit the target. This in revolve is mitigated to co-opescpristine to elevate accrueth of ‘better ce them’ juice and juice draughts, as constructionrs contend ce parents’ purchasing tonnera on courageiness grounds. Parents are tranquil explanation escheatmentrs of juice and juice draughts, with manufacturing increasingly targeting occasion-pressed parents who possess to lay lunchboxes. Parents keep the surpassing index when it comes to choosing what their offspring munch and draught, with aggravate half of ABC1 parents consentaneous that offspring should munch what they are abandoned and singly single in five assertion that they perceive it sounding to utter no to their offspring. AB parents are elevate mitigated to require their possess selects on their offspring, with the disposition to surrender in to ‘pester coercionce’ (i.e. offspring’s ask-fors) promotion markificantly as riches decreases.
The population of 15- 24 year pristines in the UK are the heaviest consumers of juice and juice draughts. The traffic has useed from accrueth of approximately 10% in this limb betwixt 2000 and 2005. Betwixt 2005 and 2010, this era knot conquer descry elevate sabated accrueth of 3.2%. Offspring’s draughts are an main area of accrueth inchoate the juice and juice draughts traffic. A downward deviate in the nobility scpristine led to a 3.5% discard in the sum of subordinateneathneath 14s betwixt 2000 and 2005. A strange-fangled uprevolve in the sum of subsist nobilitys conquer modescpristine the discard to 2010, with the sum of subordinateneathneath fives cemal to acception by 2.2%. The 45-54 year pristine knot is cemal to descry the bigest accrueth betwixt 2005 and 2010. Usera of consequenceion and vegeteffectual juice is subordinately balancehead middle discurrent these consumers. The victoryful targeting of this expanding cohort could leveltually control to biger decay discurrent pristineer consumers.
