Both very successful global companies, Tata Motors are part of the Tata Group a sprawling conglomerate with a presence across many industries. Chiquita Brands International Inc. is the global market leaders in producing, distributing, and marketer of bananas (Chiquita story). Chiquita’s global expansion came from acquiring existing businesses. Through subsidiaries and associate companies, Tata Motors increased its global footprint operations in the UK, South Korea, Thailand, Spain, South Africa and Indonesia (Tata Motors).

Tata Motors ‘first mover’ strategic plan around total quality imperative management, purely focused around meeting and exceed customers’ expectations (Luthans & Doh, 2012) was not entirely successful either, forcing Tata Motors back to the drawing board. Both Chiquita and Tata Motors could have learned from each other in creating a cross breed of successful strategic plans through a shared insight of their stakeholders and customers.
With increased pressure and focus on multinational companies towards social, ethical and environmental responsibilities over the past decade, Chiquita and Tata Motors achieved a high standard through strategic alliances and partnerships with such groups as the Rainforest Alliance in 1993 (Chiquita...
