Threats & Weaknesses
Consumers equate healthy with boring and tasteless
Most people are familiar with the yummy taste of bananas
Grocers charge entry slotting fees for shelf space
We will solve this issue by working with the produce dept which normally
has no slotting fees we will create banana wave displays that showcases
our product next to the bananas
This business is capital intensive so we must have sufficient operating
capital to survive to build a sustainable business we learned that we must
export containers immediately to acquire capital and brand our product
domestically, we will form strategic alliances with the First lady Michelle
Obama's Let's Move initiative for children and public schools
We will also form strategic alliances with the American Heart Association
and the American cancer society
We realize that we do not have the long-term experience in the beverage
industry so we must work closely with our manufacturer and beverage
recruiters to find and attract the best talent. Also we will enroll in bevnet
magazines beverage school to continue to learn the industry ins & outs.
