They provide the products dealing mas marketing, that is why they have to cater a big market. The idea of establishing a company in such competition came from the</p> <p>difference of target audience.

It has a variety of flavours. Raw materials: Contract Suppliers Production Unit: One Unit at Karachi PERISHIBILITY Required Temp: -18C. Life time (Out of freezer): 15 min. PACKING Packaging: Multiple packaging Small packs: Cones Cups Take home packs: liter packs 1 liter packs</p> <p>Positioning:</p> <p>Page 6 of 16</p> <p>Del Frio ice cream is positioned as an experience, not a product, which people do remember. Positioned as high end ice cream but at an affordable price. For elite class, who purchase to have a feel of international brand, a good packaging and a unique ice cream texture. Del Frio is an Spanish name which means cold.</p> <p>Why it is different?</p> <p>Del frio uses the imported ingredients. Artificial ingredients and essence are not used as other commercial ice cream companies do. Del Frio aims to provide a good feel, look, the way it is packaged and the a different texture. Natural ingredients are used to enhance the taste, which makes it different from other ice creams. The things that differentiates it from others, is the avialabiltiy of freshly prepared brownies and yogurt, so it has a unique taste and different style of serving. Chocolate Fudge is available with fresh chunks of brownies, Vanilla Fudge is available with brownies chunks, Strawberry Yogurt with fresh yogurt, Cookies and Cream with Oreos. There is no other ice cream provider giving such taste and fresh items.</p> <p>Competitors:</p> <p>Although Unilver is also an ice cream provider, and in principle it is the competitor of Del Frio, but the target audience of Unilever is something very different. Unilever targets the masses and produces the ice cream in huge quantities. Del</p> <p>Page 7 of 16</p> <p>Frio market is niche market, and thus the real competitors are; y y y Moven Pick Host Spot Gelato Affairs</p> <p>Competitors Analysis:</p> <p>Moven Pick: Moven Picks ice cream is considered as the most quality ice cream and very expensive ice cream. Major reason, that why it is so expensive is that, they import the ice cream in frozen for from Switzerland. For the purpose they have to pay a high cost of franchise, and a heavy duty of transportation. That is the reason they charge a scoop of ice cream in 149 Rs, which is 50 Rs more than what Del Frio offers of the same scoop. They charge per lit more than 1000 Rs, while Del Frio has a unique pricing strategy for 1 lit which is below 600 Rs.</p> <p>Gelato Affairs and Hot Spot: Hot spot and gelato Affairs have their own outlets and they bear over heads charges, that is why they also charge the high price of ice cream, they have to compromise the quality to overcome these overheads.</p> <p>Competitive and Market Position: Ice cream sector is remained remarkably strong and resilient. Accordingly to the ice cream sector is primarily dominated by major players such as Unilver, Igloo, Gelato Affairs, Moven Pick and Omores. Smaller players also added to the escalating competition among these companies to gain maximum market share as possible.</p> <p>Page 8 of 16</p> <p>Commercial Ice Cream: Igloo, Walls and Omores market their ice cream as commercial ice cream. They use multiple artificial stabilizers to make the ice cream frozen. Their ice cream is essence based. That is why they bear low cost of production, and sel ice cream at low cost, they distribute their product all over the Pakistan. They have their own outlets and also distribute the refrigerators all over the Pakistan. They do mass marketing in order to overcome the huge overheads, but their ice cream is only of the standard to be accpete by masses, they dont use the actual ingredients. Strategy: Del frio go through the word of mouth strategy. We advertise ourselves through Facebook. We have registered ourselves on (Where all types of food items either national or international are available at a single call). We have planned to expend at Sofitel Clifton, Agha Super Market, Dolmin city clifron. Where we find the more elite class spending.</p> <p>Why we targeted CBM: As our target audience is elite class, it is affordable to them. CBM is the ideal place for targeting the selected class. There is the strength of 4000 students, 4000 students are major source of brand awareness in their friends and their families. We have perfect age group at CBM from 19 to 25 years. Del Frio had a very good response. Reasonable rates, affordable by students (Rs 90 per Scoop). There are minimum over heads charges due to university area and greater profitability.</p> <p>Page 9 of 16</p> <p>Atrium Mall: Ideal place for elite class. Weekly 5000 product. people It purchase becomes the 20000</p> <p>people, who are aware of Del Frio.</p> <p>At Events: Del Frio does not miss the chance to cater the events. Specially at Golf Club, Creek Club, South end Club, where elite class is targeted. Recently there was targeted the Basant Festival.</p> <p>Page 10 of 16</p> <p>Market Segmentation</p> <p>CHARACTERISTICS OF THE MARKET Few of the characteristics upon which the market has been segmented are discussed below: GEOGRAPHIC Del Frio is targeting its audience only in Karachi at present. DEMOGRAPHIC Demographic variables of Del Frio target market are mostly age and income based. Del Frio havecreated many sorts of ice creams. If we consider the income segmentation, Del Frio is targeting upper, middle income levels. The pricing for the class is such that, it does not bother the middle class to buy a scoop of ice cream, and it is also affordable while purchasing a 1 lit deal. PSYCHOGRAPHIC The psychographic segmenting is done on the basis of the taste and health conscious consumer. Del Frio targeted its market by creating an image of high quality and hygienic products. Also relating fun and Shugal with ice cream helps depicting the life style of its potential user, especially at events.</p> <p>BEHAVIORAL</p> <p>Page 11 of 16</p> <p>The behavioral segmentation is done on three different variables that tend to define a particular behavior or attitude of a consumer. These are:</p> <p>Occasions regular occasions, special occasions Usage rate usage rate in cold, cold does not matter Benefits quality, presentation, taste, feel, texture, packaging</p> <p>TYPICAL BUYING PATTERN Although in the present WALLS enjoys leading the market from the day it came in the business, Del Frioproducing a high quality ice cream has proved itself to be the best in the market in a selected area, that is why the popularity is increasing day by day. The nation have a tendency to follow others to the maximum extend. Pakistan is a nation with a tendency to get influenced by others and especially by western communities. We can categorize ice cream as fast food, which is a symbol of western community, so we can very well imagine ice cream gaining its popularity. Consumers with high purchasing power are becoming heavy user of products available by Del Frio. Where else the consumers with very low purchasing power are light users. The density of user can also be categorized geographically. Although Pakistan is considered a hot climate country generally but it does have areas with low temperature. Ice cram is a kind of food, which is not age bounded or class bounded. But it is a fact that people of different ages and social classes may require different varieties of ice cream at different price levels. So for that purpose WALLS has adopted a rifle approach and divided market into a number of segments</p> <p>Page 12 of 16</p> <p>according to different social classes and ages and then tried to provide ice cream solution for all to satisfy the consumer within his buying power.</p> <p>SEGMENTATION ON THE BASIS OF INCOME CLASSES:</p> <p>Page 13 of 16</p> <p>1. UPPER CLASS It includes the elite or higher income class who can afford even the most expensive items without much botheration. They consume ice-cream more on the basis of taste and preference rather than money. 2. UPPER-MIDDLE CLASS This class includes people with moderate kind of income. You can neither put them in free hand category nor very less purchasing power category. These people normally take the taste and affordability both into consideration. 3. LOWER-MIDDLE CLASS These are the people with very little income to spend. These people usually prefer the low price and economy than taste and preferences. They are not in the target audience of Del Frio.</p> <p>SEGMENTATION ON BASIS OF AGE:</p> <p>Page 14 of 16</p> <p>1. ADULTS Adults will mostly prefer the quality product which not only fulfill their taste and preference requirements but also reflects their personality. The adults are normally ready to pay for a product which fulfills their physical and psychological needs because they are the income generators. 2. TEENAGERS: Teenagers dont have any specific taste and preferences. New products and new ideas always attract them. But they have a limited product and they have to maintain their expenditure with in that. 3. KIDS: Kids normally do not have a great know-how of the taste rather they are psychologically attracted towards the product. They are not concerned with the taste of ice cream and they just want ice cream. As they are dependent and cannot spend money themselves, so their parents mostly just provide them with an economical ice cream, not any specialized ice cream as it is not demanded.</p> <p>SWOT Analysis: Strenghts: y y Available in 8 different flavours, with brownies, orios and chocolate. Prices are resonable, such that, a liter pack is much cheaper than a single scoop of ice cream, but the single scoop is also available at reasonable prices. y y It got good food energy value, which is good for heal...</p>
