Question 1:

Who is the target market for Gourmantra? Describe them and discuss why you think Gourmantra has been successful so far.

Busy household who want healthy meal, people who like Indian food, People who like food with spice, people who want inexpensive meal, people who doesn’t know how to cook, and people who wants healthy food.

They offered packaging of spice and ingredients with exception of meat and it could ease customer’s trouble to find every product which they are or not familiar with, they offered sampling program and people love samples, it provided quick healthy and cheap meal set, the company collected data from their research and upgraded further to satisfy customer therefore, they are successful.

Are there any other group/ segments that you believe Gourmantra could target and be successful? Why?

Canada is an international country with a lot of foreigner from all over the world so most people miss their country’s food so if they offer Japanese packaging, Panamanian packaging, European packaging, Chinese packaging, Korean packaging, or any country. They can also target business-to-business in order to reach international market because in other countries, there are immigrants or locals who wants to taste authentic food from the country of their choice. They could also target students from high school or college because most of them are eating fast food chain which is not very healthy so maybe implementing school’s cafeteria’s menu to have the option to eat gourmantra’s food is a good way to expand the business.

Write a brief positioning statement for Gourmantra- imagine that you are briefing an ad agency that is going to design the packaging and promotion plan for Gourmantra and this positioning statement is the agency’s blueprint or guide for everything that they do for Gourmantra.

Gourmantra is SMART. Safe, modern, affordable, ready, and tasty.
