Positioning and Brandin
According to the International Dairy Foods Association, take-home ice cream sales totaled $6.8 billion in 2010. This market can be divided into four quality-based segments:
· Super premium ice creams like Ben & Jerry’s and Haagen-Dazs have very low overrun (i.e., minimal aeration) and high fat content, and the manufacturers use the best quality ingredients.
· Premium ice creams like Turkey Hill have low overrun and higher fat content than regular ice cream, and are made with higher quality ingredients.
· Regular ice cream brands like Breyer’s meet the overrun required for the federal ice cream standard (i.e., finished product must not weigh less than 4.5 pounds per gallon).
· Economy ice cream meets the government standard and generally sells for a lower price than regular ice cream.
