Progress Update on Phase 2 (JC and VM)
I have a few questions for Luisa, and these are as follows:(A) Clarity on project A, B and C? (B) We will need help on ensuring clarity on Corporate vs. Business strategy for CBC, we have put together some wording?
JC, what do you mean by clarity of project A, B, C? whaich ones are these?--Luisaserra 16:33, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Luisa, it would be good if you open the document that I sent you and you will see that Shumi had indicated that we do an anlysis of Project A, B and C? The question is are focusing on the 3 products - Sparkling, Water and Juice or we considered that as one Project. Then wwe will need to clatrify for Project B and C???? Shumi did send an email this afternoon asking you to explain on that. Merci.
Ok, I will check my emails but I have been the all afternoon with yahoo open and I do not recall seeing it, I will check it again, can you resend it again, just to make sure, thanks--Luisaserra 16:40, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
Ok, regarding this issue of sparkling beverages, water and fruit juice, let me explain. When you decide to buy a PET line (a line that can bottle with plastic bottles) you can choose a line that only does the sparkling beverages, or the water beverages or the fruit juice beverages or you can have one which can do the 3 types of beverages and that is called a multi swing line. In Uganda we opted to go for the 3 types because it is the strategy of the Coca-Cola company worldwide to place itself in the market place as a fully non alchoolic beverage company. Regarding the Fruit Juice technology the Uganda line was the first line in the Coca-Cola worldwide system to use a technology called hot nitro fill technology, and this means that the bottling of fruit juice can be done using hot fill, this enables the reduction on the concentration of preservatives and uses nitrogen which can give stability and pressurize the bottle to make it hard, enabling the use of light weight preforms (these are the bottles in vial form arriving at the factory to be blown into bottle shape just before being filled)I belive you need to use this project as one project to enable Ugnada to position in the market a full beverage choice of drinks in PET which is a convinience pack. I hope I have been clearer otherwise shout, I will still look at the email--Luisaserra 16:49, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
What I called Project A B and C are the various other projects that CBC was udertaking during this time period. ie CBC's total project profile. I believe there were no other projects running at the same time as the hotfill project. (luisa to confirm) JC we may have to restrategise on thise headings if my assumptions on CBC's project profile are correct.
JC, by this explanation, it means we forget about B and C and do a comprehensive analysis on the current project and how it fits into the corporate strategy. The presentation documents eg the Fanus document, gives some good insight.
Please add some theoretical quotes and references too.
