RE: Delfi (formerly: Petra Foods)
Delfi's brand of chocolates has been in Indonesia for many decades.

Its range of products are in the lower-price range, probably positioned as an entry-level chocolate for low-income consumers.

If you have tasted Tops, Silver Queen, and the various Delfi-branded chocolates (some of which are modeled to look like its competitors), you will find that they taste quite different/distinct from your usual from Mars, Nestle, and Hershey. Much of the reason, of course, can be found in the wide price disparity between these products.

The most expensive ingredient in a chocolate confection is usually cocoa butter, which gives the confection its unique 'chocolate taste and texture.' Since the Indonesian market cannot afford chocolate made with cocoa butter, another oil/fat substitute is used; the ubiquitous palm oil.

Some may think that different brands thrive in different markets, because consumers from different geographies have their tastes 'attuned' to whichever brand they were first exposed to. American chocolates were thought to be too sweet for the European palate. Can the case be made that the Indonesians and Filipinos will prefer Delfi chocolates, even if they are able to afford those from Mars, Nestle, and Hershey?

When Indonesian consumers can afford more expensive chocolates made with cocoa butter, I'm not so sure if they will still stick to Delfi. At least, I wont be betting on it. Delfi's current pricing -- which assumes a high level of future growth -- appears to be much too optimistic to me.
