Why is it “snail noodles”
What makes many people puzzled is why a bowl of “stinky” powder can be so hot?
First of all, the “smelly” smell of snail noodles is a boon to many young people with heavy tastes, which also brings certain “social attributes” to them.
The most controversial “smelly” smell of snail noodles comes from the sour bamboo shoots made from secret recipes passed down from generation to generation and then fermented. In fact, the amino acids in fermented food can make the food more delicious and unstoppable. The “2019 Taobao Food Big Data Report” shows that not only snail noodles, but also stinky tofu, stinky sour bamboo shoots, stinky mandarin fish, and other foods that are famous for their smell, are on the rise.
“The first time I tried snail noodles, I was curious to see it frequently appearing in hot searches.” Huang Ying said, “This taste is very special. I have a lot of friends around to try it, and their feedback is also good. “In her opinion, the friendship between “foodies” has become deeper because of the snail powder.
Secondly, the popularity of snail noodles made good use of new channels to open up sales, and even gave birth to many cross-border joint marketing examples.
From “showing his face” in documentaries and traditional variety shows at the very beginning, to now catching the “express” of short videos and live broadcasts, snail fans have taken advantage of the latest contemporary communication channels. On February 10 last year, Li Jiaqi sold 26,000 boxes of snail noodles within 3 hours of broadcasting; on May 17 last year, during the snack festival on May 17 last year, 100,000 copies of snail noodles were sold out within one minute.
The cross-border joint name has made the snail fans more popular.Previously, Haohuanluo and Yuanqi Forest cross-border launched the summer limited gift box “Huanluo Yuanqi Bomb”, satisfying consumers’ curious and playful hearts; Naixue’s tea launched the “bowl of snail powder” soft European bag, which was quickly posted onWeiboHot search list; KFC’s fast-cooked pre-packaged food series product “KAIFENGCAI” also launched snail noodles…Frequent cross-border co-branding constantly refreshed the presence of snail noodles among young people.
The “home economy” that has risen in the epidemic has also caused an explosion in sales of instant food such as snail noodles, instant noodles, and self-heating small hot pots.
“Last year the’home economy’ rose, driven by Internet celebrities, variety shows and social media platforms,Internet ageThe traffic dividend of the company formed a ripple effect and contributed to the tens of billions of sales of snail noodles. “An industry expert said.
Finally, the popularity of snail noodles cannot be separated from the important promoter of Liuzhou City Government.
The Liuzhou Municipal Government not only organizes snail noodles food festivals, selection contests and other activities to increase the influence of snail noodles, but also issued a number of encouragement and support policies to promote snail noodles in an all-round wayIndustrial upgradingDevelop and “escort” it.
In 2015, the Liuzhou Municipal Government applied for snail powderGeographical indicationProtection; In 2016, Liuzhou City built a snail noodle industrial park in Yufeng District, covering an area of 800 acres. In addition, the Liuzhou Municipal Government has also established the Snail Powder Protection Association. After unifying the snail powder formula, it vigorously encourages the development of local factories to increase the production capacity of snail powder.
This shows that the popularity of snail noodles is not groundless. However, will snail noodles keep going?
Questioned market size
A major controversy in the market regarding snail noodles is the size of the market. Some people regard the snail noodle market as a blue ocean of capital that has not yet been developed; some people think that the snail noodle market is only a product of the “net celebrity economy”, which has certain particularity and short-term nature.
In fact, snail powder has beenIndustrial capitalAttention, not onlyHaidilao、Three squirrels、Liangpin shopOther brands have increased the category of snail noodles, and leading investment institutions have begun to look for potential companies among them.
Now, as more and more players enter the game, the smoke on the battlefield of snail fans has become more intense.
Under the increasingly fierce channel competition, the brand of snail noodlesprofitIs being further compressed, the entire industry seems to be gradually showingpriceThe development trend of war. Take the new entrant Sinopec’s “Sister Yi snail noodles” as an example. Its boiled type is priced at 9 yuan/pack, while the hot-selling snail noodles in the industry generally cost 10-15 yuan/pack.
“The production threshold of snail noodles is not high. There is no shortage of good products in this market, but good brand players. Players want to break the simplePrice warThe only way to make the brand better is the vicious circle. “The above-mentioned industry experts believe that as the public’s familiarity and acceptance of this category of snail noodles gradually increase, different demands will be raised and the product category will be further subdivided.
Undoubtedly, snail noodles is a business with low production threshold, low cost and substantial profit.
“Product research and development, quality control management, expanding consumption scenarios, and improving the service system are indispensable and must be done well.” In the expert’s view, late players are not completely out of opportunities. “First, we need to differentiate the entire market by scene differentiation, price differentiation, and demand differentiation, and then combine our own advantages and disadvantages to choose the right track, while avoiding the competition from the players at the beginning, so as to establish our own moat.”
With the continuous growth of the housing economy and the enhancement of consumption power in the Z era, the future market of snail noodles is worth looking forward to.
In the “2020 China FMCG Early Investment Opportunity Report”, Tsingshan Capital puts convenience fast food as a key category, and its market size is expected to reach 250 billion yuan.
More snail powder manufacturers are emerging, even going overseas.According to Liuzhou Customs statistics, from January to June 2020, after customs inspectionExit28 batches of Liuzhou snail noodles, about the sameRMB7.5 million yuan, which is 8 times the total export value of snail powder in 2019.
As the charm of snail noodles has gradually become known to more people, this top-level economics constructed by a bowl of “smelly” noodles is constantly opening up more room for imagination.
