information at Pillsbury.
Ivan Guillen, RBG Marketing Manager.
We will discuss this case in class as a preview. Following that discussion, your group should analyze and
discuss the following questions:
1. Should General Mills Canada Corporation (GMCC) focus on and continue to invest in the
refrigerated baked goods (RBG) category? Why or why not? Develop a ??business case?? supporting
your point-­-of-­-view on this issue.
Your position may vary to points below, in other words, you could argue for ??milking?? the
category/division irrespective of answers that follow.
2. How could/would you grow the RBG category? What strategic goal/s and direction would be
realistic and required?
Following on, how could/would you grow the refrigerated cookie dough (RCD) segment? What
strategic goal/s and direction would be realistic and required?
Support both points with a logical argument relative to information about the market as presented
in the case.
3. Compare and contrast product forms. Specifically, define the product benefit/s and competitive
advantage/s of:
?? scratch baking ingredients
????????pre-­-mix cookie baking products
????????refrigerated cookie dough ?? chubs
????????refrigerated cookie dough ?? ready-­-to-­-bake pre-­-formed cookies
Illustrate and discuss a product positioning map including each variant. Where do you see the
greatest market potential and why?
4. Who is/are Pillsbury??s target consumer for RCD? How would you describe the ideal target consumer
profile?
