  Question 1 : To what do you attribute Brita’s success?  Brita is the dominant player in the home water filtration industry, with 83% of pitchers and 75%sales in filters sold in retail outlets across the United States. As market research indicates, 14% of U.S. households have purchased the Brita water filters. This signals growth opportunity for Brita’s products. Brita’s success in the pitcher water filtration system is due to its ability to tap a market  that has yet to be utilized to its complete potential. Over the course of time Brita emerged as themarket leader in the pitcher/filter category and also built a very strong brand image. During the 1990s, Brita has built its marketing position using the strategy “Established in class, first in mass, and alone in grocery.”Their large retail distribution channe ls and their presence in multiplechanels gave them a huge advantage.Another factor that aided their success was the strong advertising and brand building campaigns. They have attached a tag of “purity” to the Brita pitchers and the “water - fall” image was attached tothe image promising a good, clean taste. The loyal customer base which they have is another reason for Brita’s success. With 80% of  customers remaining with the Brita system after five years and purchasing an average of 4 filterseach, suggests that the value of the customer, once captured and retained, is enormous.Question 2:What marketing assets has Clorox acquired in these years of vigorous growth and what is the best use to which these assets can be deployed?Clorox in its period of rigorous growth has acquired quite a good number of marketing assets.
