Standardization or adaptation which is understood as localization and globalization is some key understanding that must be utilized when framing the marketing mix. In terms of standardization, the marketing mix, such as product, price, place or promotion, would be brought up to the global standards, nothing. In terms of adaptation, it could be said that specific changes are made such that the product, its price, the form of distribution or the form of promotion is changed to fit the country. Factors such as socio-cultural elements, competition and more would be allowed to make changes within the marketing mix. In the case of the Wu Dalang biscuits, a form of geocentrism using both standardization and adaptation elements could be used. Using only adaptation would be polycentrism and using only standardization would be ethnocentrism.
