In the business market any company who faces the competitor market also face the competitive position. In this situation one company try to develops their product in terms of another company. People or consumer must be using those products which are very quality full or familiar. So we must be follow our competitor and try to create the best one. So, to compete with they and we have to ensure the quality of our product. The competitor companies and their brands are follows:-

Distribution network

The Distribution system is the heard of the company. The distribution system are weak the company are not get success and they are not take any position on the market. Day by day they  are out of the market. The distribution system are very important each and every company. Every company distribution system are same but some of different.

Olympic distribution system:

Olympic are the bigger biscuit company in this country. The Olympic biscuit company provides better or good distribution system. Each and every dealer are divided within there area. The company first sells the biscuit to their dealer. The dealer sells the biscuit to the retailer. In this process the dealer uses many rickshaw van or pickup van to sell the biscuit on the market. The dealer need active, energetic, motivate sells man. The sells man work full day on the field. The sells man play important role to increase the sells volume. But the company provide the sells officer, sells supervisor, regional manager. The company gives salary to this employ. The   sells officer sells supervisor, regional manager they are all work on the field.4 to 5 sells officer work under a sells supervisor or 2 to 3 supervisor work under a regional manager.

Another company

Another company distribution system is same. Every bigger company uses the same distribution system as well as Olympic. But many of area I see them Alamin provide only one man, this person also van driver or sells man. Because they are order cut frist and they give the product on the shop.

 

Danish Biscuits Distribution Network

Danish Biscuits Ltd. is distributed in its present markets through the local distributors, for the each of the products. Distributing the products to the mass consumer we use the electronic media (Internet, TV, and Radio) and as well as use posturing method for advertising. The company provides two or three sales officer to the every dealer to help them increase their sales. These sales officers are works under the regional manager. In the whole Dhaka city the company provides four regional managers. Each and every dealer divided within their area. For example Tongi dealer ‘Nowakhali Bannizo Bitan’ is divided in 28 outlets. Under the each and every outlet the sales man cover 30 to 50 shop everyday.

Promotion Mix

Sales Promotion

The promotion discussion consists of a description and justification of the planned promotion mix. It is useful to explain the theme of the promotion and to include some examples of potential ads as well as the nature of the sales force if one is to be used. For mass-marketed consumer goods, promotion cost can be larger and need to be considered explicitly in the marketing plan.

  • In-store Demonstrations

In store demonstration, will be conducted to give consumers a chance to try Danish Biscuits Ltd products and learn about their unique taste. Demos will be conducted regularly in all markets to increase awareness and trial purchases. On the other hand the other companies like Alamin Cosmos provide 1 free packet to the retailer with the purchasing of 1 carton biscuits, if a retailer buy 5 carton biscuits then the companies provide 5 taka less commission. Buy one carton alamin pineapple the company one pack pineapple free. The Olympic biscuit company gives the promotion. Olympic company gives the shop board with Olympic biscuit brand name or picture. Danish give some types of promotion. Buy one carton pineapple the company give one pack free. Another biscuit company is not any types of promotion.

 

Advertisement

Each and every company needs advertisement. If they are not show the advertisement the consumer not know there brands. If they are provide any types of advertisement. Television advertisement is most important. Also u is providing bill board, shop board, magazine, newspaper, advertisement. In my opinion, I provide you is show the brand wise advertisement. Because you are showing particular brand advertisement, the consumer particularly know about your brand.

In January 2008 the Olympic biscuit company provides the TV advertisement. They are made brand wise advertisements. They are made an advertisement plan.

 

Analysis

Company analysis

We think in this time, the world is first going on the business. For now these times establish a business is a best opportunity. That’s why we think to create or form a company which is Danish Biscuits Ltd . The main objective is quality ensure within reasonable price and also earning profit. Our company size is obviously better size when we think the other competitive company in our country.

The company now uses a single outside producer with which it works closely to maintain the consistently high quality required in its products. The greater volume has increased production efficiencies, resulting in a steady decrease in the cost of goods sold.

Customer analysis

Mainly our customers in middle class and also lower middle class people. Which is captured our product in maximum percentage and some percentage of our customers, are working class people. Middle class people income is 15-18 thousands, lower middle class people’s income is 10-12 thousands and working class people’s income is 3-5 thousand. Primarily we expected that these types of customer use our products. After passing many years when we will ensure the best quality of our products, then the people who are stay in upper level class; we target them as the consumer of our products.

At the time of producing our product, we also keep in mind the Health factor of our customer. When a new brand comes in the market consumer first use it and follow that it is good or bad for their health. As we are new company that’s why we belief production concept, in this reason we follow the customers health.

 

 

Recommendation

The Danish companies every product name are sweet. Its packaging and color combination are very nice. The consumer like package of milk Marie, they told packet color is very nice.

But Danish main problem are pricing. Few days ago the provide milk Marie biscuit. Its consumer price or retailer price are 35tk per pack, its problem. Because novelty milk Marie biscuit are high selling biscuit among the other Marie biscuit on the market. Novelty milk Marie retailer price is 35tk per pack. So novelty or Danish price is same. But novelty have good brand reputation on the market, they are sell the milk Marie last 3 to 4 year. The Consumer like novelty milk Marie biscuit. So Danish biscuit less the price of milk Marie 1 or 2tk per pack and more price benefit to the retailer.

In the Distribution system Danish biscuits face some problem. Most of the company takes order first and after 1 or 2 day they give the product. But Danish are sells the products hand to hand, its problem. Because many of retailers told they have no money at that time, they are not buy biscuit that time. Some shop employ says the shop keeper is not available in the shop at this time, which is the most visible problem at this time.

Danish cookie is good biscuit, but they are not taken any position on the market. Because cosmos dealer price are 80tk per 12pc and Danish price are 78tk per 12pc .Retailer price are same 8tk per pack. The cosmos give the promotion. Any retailer buy 5 carton they give 5tk commission. If your company wants to achieve the best position on the cookie biscuit market, then you must reduce the price and provide the best promotional activities.

In advertisement department must of the company provided huge campaign about there product. For example haque biscuit company provide the TV advertisement. Olympic provide the shop board. Advertisement is more important to a product. You are made brand wise advertisement. Than every body know the particular brand of your biscuits.

The multi Marie gold biscuit its high selling biscuit of area, all kinds of shop I find out the multi Marie gold biscuit, because the Maries gold price are 20taka per pack. But all of the companies Marie biscuit price are up to 30 taka per packs. I provide u is produce 15 to 20taka Marie pack.

 

Conclusion

Consumerism is an organized social movement intended to strengthen the rights and power of consumer relative to sellers. Alert market view it is an opportunity to serve consumer better by providing more consumer information, On  the other hand environment is an organized social movement seeking to minimize the herm done to the environment and quality of life by marketing practice. It calls for curbing consumer wants when their satisfaction would create too much environment cost. Citizen action has led to the passage of many laws of protect consumer in the area of product safety, truth in packaging, truth bin leading, truth in advertising. The company needs to be much alert about all these factors marketing and selling the product. If the company could keep mutuality between the consumer’s satisfaction and their profit, it would lead the product to climb the highest acme of the success of the marketing environment.
