For the race, family cycle and religion is in general in society, therefore we do not have specific segmentation for that.
Not only that, KITTY is as well available for elderly who age from 40-60, because KITTY green tea does not contain many sugars and less calories.

We have tested to our local customers, the results is 3 out of 10 people said they did not like the taste of Kitty green tea. Although it is known as healthy, It is also unfortunate for people who have diabetes to restrain them of consuming too much, because our Kitty Green Tea still contains biscuit and chocolate which consist of sugars.

V. MARKETING MIX STRATEGY PRODUCT KITTY
Green Tea has unique features that until now it is completely new product and there is no similar product in Indonesian market. One of unique features is green tea, as already mention before, more specifics of benefits of KITTY green tea as its competitive advantages are The fact that Chinese has been used it since ancient times as medical benefits from headache to depression.
Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating hat drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. This research is also supported by recently University of Purdue researchers concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HAD) cholesterol.
In the fact it is rich in catechist polyphony's, particularly epistemologically gallant (EGG) which is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer ells without harming healthy tissue. It is also effective in lowering OLD cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. Other benefits are green tea can even help dieters. In November, 1999, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the results of a study at the University of Geneva in Switzerland.
Researchers found that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than those given only caffeine. (About. Com, 2010) Green tea also helps prevent tooth decay. It could also help prevent food poisoning; it kills he bacteria that cause dental plaque. Moreover, skin products containing green tea start from deodorants to creams are appearing on the market. The product appearance is following the Japan packaging, is nearly same with the brand Nestle from Indonesia, and the name of product is KITTY Green Tea flavor. The packaging is designed with the green as dominant color and a picture of green tea.
We developed and change the packaging from Japan into the preference of Indonesian the branding and labeling is stronger because we cooperate with Nestle Japan and it is imported from there. The production services will be included in customer services. PRICE The price of normal KITTY in Indonesia is different with different size, normally for 5 pieces in one packaging range from RPR. 11000 to RPR. 1 5000 depends on the stores. Imported KITTY sold in Indonesia is around Rapport per piece. We would want to make different size of this product, yet same price in whole stores especially in the first year.
First, the small KITTY in one piece consist of 2 bars, will be priced RPR. 5000, Second, one piece consists of 4 bars will price RPR. 10000. Third we would sell in one package consist of 5 pieces with 2 bars price RPR. 0000. Lastly, in one package consist of 12 piece with 2 bars price RPR. 75000. We would win from our competitors because it is our advantages in selling KITTY Green Tea originally produced in Indonesia, than our competitors who imported from Japan which is in higher price around Rp100000 per package. Some key cost drivers are production factors that affect the selling price of the product.
In the first year, we want to introduce the new product therefore we want to set the same price for a year, not depending in cost of production especially green tea which could priced higher in times. Meanwhile, in the following years, in order to gain more profits, the price of KITTY will change periodically to keep up the cost of productions. Other factor is coming from competitors, in order to stay competitive; we will follow the price of Indonesian market. We sell our new product to middle and upper class customers because they well educated enough of this product information so they want to buy.
With this price we are well competitive enough in the market, especially with the real green tea, makes it reasonable and affordable. Other strong chocolate competitors such as Silversides, Academy and Delft will be hard in winning with us because we have healthy and delicious chocolate.
Green Tea will be promoted through different medias, commercially via TV commercial, magazines, billboard, internet advertising and stores. As mention before, one of the promotion is will give free tester in the first week of our launching and KITTY souvenirs or vouchers through lottery to customers who buy 2 or more packages.
At the same time, we would also make TV commercials in favorite TV channels in Indonesia such as Trans TV, Trans 7, ARCTIC, SDTV and Metro TV as suitable o our target market. Hereafter, we will also make advertisement in newspapers in Compass and magazines like Girl and Cosmological for teens, Feminine for women, Healthily and food & culinary magazine.

Also internet advertising will be placed in famous website such as Faceable Youth and Google Ad to make people aware of this product
