Marketing Concept of Unilever Bangladesh
Unilever is one of the world’s leading suppliers of fast moving consumer goods across foods, home and personal product categories. Unilever’s portfolio includes some of the world’s best known and most loved brands. Unilever’s mission is to add vitality to life. That includes encouraging greater vitality among our staff in a program that encompassed the broad concepts of ‘fitness of body’ and ‘fitness of heart, mind and spirit’. Designed to help them manage their personal energy and resilience in the face of change, as well as striking a good work-life balance, among other objectives, the .first step of the program was an Enjoy Nutrition campaign. This provided staff with important nutritional information, such as advice on how to reduce consumption of sugar, salt and unhealthy fats. We also piloted nutritional training for our chefs and external suppliers so that our canteens and restaurants could offer healthier options.

Marketing Management philosophy
Marketing management means carrying out tasks to build profitable relationships with target consumers. On the other hand, philosophy means a set of beliefs or an attitude to life that is a guiding principle for behavior.
There are six alternative concepts under marketing management philosophy, which are given below:
1. Production Concept:
The production concept holds that consumer will favor products that are available and highly affordable. Therefore management should focus on improving production and distribution efficiency. This concept is one of the oldest orientations that guide sellers.
But we can use it in two situations:
a) When the demand for a product exceeds the supply, and
b) When the product’s cost is too high.
2. The product Concept:
The product concept holds that consumers will favor products that most quality, performance, and innovative features. Thus, an organization should devote energy to making continuous product improvements. Some manufactures believe that if they can build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to their door. But they are often rudely shocked. Buyers may well be looking for a better solution to a mouse problem but
Not necessarily for a better mousetrap. The solution might be a chemical spray, an exterminating service, or something that works better than a mousetrap.
3. The selling Concept:
Many companies follow the selling concept, which holds that consumers will not buy enough of the firm’s products unless it undertakers a large-scale selling and promotion efforts. The concept is typically practiced with unsought goods-those that buyers do not normally think of buying, such as insurance or blood donations.
4. The Marketing Concept:
The marketing concept holds that achieving organizational goals depends on knowing the need and wants of target markets and delivering the desired satisfactions better than competitors do. Under the marketing concept, customer focus and value is the [path to sales and profits.
The ultimate purpose of the marketing concept is to help organizations achieve their objectives. In the case of private firms, the major objective is long-run profitability; in the case of nonprofit and public organizations, it is surviving and attracting enough funds to perform useful work. Private firms should not aim for profit as such, but rather to achieve profit as a consequence of creating superior customer value. A company makes money by satisfying customer needs better than its competitors.
5. The Social Marketing Concept:
The social marketing concept is and the organization should determine the needs, wants, and deliver the desired satisfactions more effectively than do competitors in a way that maintains or improves the consumer’s and society’s well-being.
