CHAPTER ONE

1.0   INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Over the years many organizations have been using brand positioning to differentiate and segment their brand (product) among competitive product categories.

Ovaltine was first introduced in the 1gth century in Birmingham United kingdom where it was produced before it was imported into Nigeria along side other malt beverage like pronto and malvota etc. The name Ovaltine was gotten first from the word Bornoille “Ville” meaning vitality hence the Ovaltine. 
Pre-1950s Ovaltine, pronto were imported into Nigeria from united kingdom that is during the colonial rule and in 1960-64, Ovaltine, pronto were imported into Nigeria from united kingdom and canned in Nigeria under the license of Cadbury Nigeria Plc. 
In 1965, Ovaltine and drinking chocolate were already produced locally, due to the civil war the ban an importation of cocoa beverages affected Ovaltine and gave way for Cadbury Nigeria Plc who took advantage of this to strengthen the position of Ovaltine.

Ovaltine enjoyed the market share until 1970 when the ban on cocoa importation was lifted and Ovaltine, Milo, vita cup etc re-remerged there by reducing Ovaltine market share. Ovaltine introduce the 9009 which stipulated growth again.

Ovaltine observed an increase competitive activity amongst key players, but still maintained its market leadership till the mid nineties. In the past years, the popularity of Ovaltine has been in question. Hence the researcher hereby attempt to find out the significance of brand positioning in marketing activities using Ovaltine as a case study.
