About this Report

Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • The key story for chocolate confectionery in 2013 was the accession of Croatia to the EU in July 2013. Even before this date, the import contingencies for chocolate were abolished, allowing unlimited imports of European chocolate, and provoking a sharp response from local manufacturers. On the other hand, this in theory also enabled local manufacturers to spread into EU markets, but this is unlikely to happen as long as Croatian confectioners are small and fragmented. Instead of this, Croatian manufacturers may lose the former CEFTA markets to the east, since Croatia has now lost its favourable trade agreements with its eastern neighbours.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Due to a significant decline in value share, the traditional leader in chocolate confectionery, domestic company Kraš, has come to a point where it could be overtaken at the top in the near future. Expected to account for a 20% value share in 2013, it is closely followed by second ranked Ferrero (Kinder, Rafaello, Rocher and Mon Cheri) and third ranked Mars (Twix, Mars, Bounty and Snickers), both expected to hold 18% shares. Although dominating in tablets with Dorina, Kraš has difficulty in other categories in chocolate confectionery.

PROSPECTS

  • The main question mark which hovers over the Croatian confectionery industry in general is whether any of the three main companies will survive in the long term. Whilst Kandit is making some efforts to consolidate, via acquiring biscuits manufacturer Koestlin and counting on new synergies, Kraš and small company Zvecevo are still pursuing their separate paths as stand-alone companies. Euromonitor International sees these companies either going bankrupt due to their weak competitive positions, or being acquired by multinationals such as Nestlé or Mondelez.

Gum

TRENDS

  • Gum is one of the packaged food categories with the smallest number of significant competitors, it is probably the most consolidated, and sees the least new launches. Until last year, it seemed that competitors had given up any fight for share. This has now changed, with Agrokor taking over the distribution of Trident by Cadbury; clearly aimed at dethroning Wrigley’s at some point in the distant future.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The competitive situation is expected to remain unchanged in gum in 2013. William Wrigley Jr is expected to remain dominant with its three major brands, Orbit, Airwaves and Winterfresh. Five of its six brands sit in the top rankings; this is expected to help the company to record a staggering 84% value share in 2013. Such an overwhelming performance is due to its long term distributor Atlantic Grupa, a company which spares no effort to get the best shelf positioning, even when there is no competition in sight.

PROSPECTS

  • The main story to be followed in the future is whether the new Trident brand will succeed in taking a larger share of sales. Good news for the brand is the importer/distributor. This is Tisak, a chain of 1,300 newspaper shops/tobacconists, also owned by Agrokor, which will surely favour Trident above Wrigley on the shelves of the leading retailer in Croatia, Konzum, which is also owned by Agrokor.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • Sugar confectionery is quite static in terms of innovation and competitive dynamics. Companies stick to their profitable cash cows, and are not willing to invest in new launches which may jeopardise their positions.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Expected to lead sugar confectionery with a 24% value share in 2013, William Wrigley Jr markets its well-recognised Orbit, Airwaves and Winterfresh drops and mints. Second ranked is expected to be Kraš with a 21% share, with its traditionally wide product portfolio, led by brands such as Bronhi and Kiki. Third is expected to be Atlantic Grupa, enjoying the popularity of its Cedevita pastilles, the second most popular brand in sugar confectionery.

PROSPECTS

  • The main question for the future is still the possible clash of the giants, Agrokor against Atlantic Grupa. The situation is the same as in gum: Atlantic Grupa, which acts both as manufacturer (Cedevita) and distributor (Wrigley’s), has enjoyed a very favourable shelf positioning in retailing, which led to its overall dominance in gum and strong position in sugar confectionery. However, the leader in retail is Agrokor (Konzum and Tisak), which lately decided to become involved in gum by importing the Trident brand, globally owned by Mondelez. The conflict boils down to a single issue: whether Atlantic Grupa will retain its favourable shelf positioning. This directly affects sales of Cedevita, Airwaves and Orbit pastilles.
