Crane Supari was a leading brand of betel nut pieces in South India. Crane Supari was perceived as a quality brand and was well accepted in urban areas, but this was not true in rural areas where the smaller brands dominated. The smaller brands had both effective and efficient distribution in rural markets. The servicing of the channel was superior in addition to the cost advantage for the small competitor. Betel nut pieces faced competition from other chewing products too. Faced with increasing category competition, the marketing manager of Crane Supari planned to tap the opportunity in the rural markets. This case explores the unique capabilities necessary to compete effectively in the rural market.
