The year 1964; Pakistan a young independent nation forging ahead towards a dream; self sufficiency in food production. Malnutrition remained a major problem and one out of four children died before attaining the age of five. 80% of the ailing children were affected with diseases caused by protein, vitamins and minerals deficiency. Poultry production, the quickest and least expensive way of filling the protein gap was planned to overcome malnutrition. Backyard poultry farming has to graduate to a more professional level. January 1964, a young man, Khalil Sattar, still a collage student, had a vision to foresee a need to establish a poultry farm. his interest led him to start a broiler farm of 1, 000 chicks.littlte had he known this flock was to become the foundation stone of K& N'S . This was the simple, inspired and nationalistic beginning of K&N's with a single minded objective of providing a better nutrition for health and happiness of the nation.

K&N’s is the founding pillar and beacon for Pakistan poultry industry- started in 1964 with a single minded objective of providing better nutrition for health and happiness of the nation. Building on years of poultry expertise, and a commitment to food-safety, K&N’s integrated all poultry production activities under one umbrella to ensure quality and food-safety by managing and controlling all stages of production.


Our mission based on four basic values of Absolute Integrity, Enthusiastic Diligence, Continuous Improvement and High Quality are at the core of all operations which provide an impelling urge for attaining perfection.

K&N’s has a strict plan to follow in terms of target orientation. Each of product is based on the rule that it should be healthy to eat and according to the taste of consumers. In this regard no compromise is solicited on hygiene and quality. Making K&N’s the leading producer and a company with huge demand for its products is the aim of K&N’s.

From very past the tradition of having heavy breakfasts along with spices and flavors including chicken have been the delight of Pakistani Cuisine. Majority of the local consumers prefers chicken to meat and desi food over fast food in Pakistan . Paratthas are a most famous item in the desi cuisine of the country with a trend based on centuries. Our product would be a perfect one enjoying highly profitable sales and customer relationships as it would be providing the very desi look and an absolute desi taste desired by the local consumers. In this regard, we can say that Jhatpat would not face any difficulty in order to convince the local consumers hence the probability for increasing sales margin is expected.

In order to gather useful information about its position in the market and commercial viability, K&N’s use SWOT analysis to determine various factors which may improvise the overall standard, quality and brand equity while growing in competition to other production units in Pakistan.

In its quality assurance cell, the company maintains a check and balance on methods of sales distribution, new business ideas and strategic options, such as entering a new market or launching a new product in its product line, changing its suppliers and outsourcing its services. A few points necessary to be included in this section are given in coming sections.

 Along with the developed brand identity and trust reposed by customers,

K&N’s has established its name in international market as well.  The company is now a producer of its own unique type which produces

various categories of products segmented for different chunks of population while remaining in lowest costs.  This is driven by a factor of self production plants which are self sufficient to produce ingredients and helping materials by themselves for K&N’s finished products.  Another factor is the strong supply chain through its distribution channels.

These factors are the basic strengths of our product inherited from the company setup.  The unique taste and first time introduction in the markets have a vast scope in the product line of its nature.

THREATS Threats are always there in poultry oriented firms so K&N’s keeps an eye on new competitors in dealing with different products related to chicken and poultry.  By improving their Distribution channels as well as pricing strategies for .  The comparison of the prices of chicken parathas produced at “tandoors” cannot be done if hygiene is kept in view.  At present the only threat is the diseases spread amongst broiler chickens which can be prevented by establishing medic control at breeding premises of company. We can use appropriate and differentiated pricing strategy to avoid this weakness of OPPERTUNITIES  As K&N’s majorly operates in Pakistan. STRATEGIC PLANNING .WEAKNESS  Though no company is a perfect in business activity performances yet pricing strategies have been the pinching element in company’s market positioning.  Though the products are cost effective as we take quality under consideration yet most of the products are targeted for the upper class of society.  In case of the introduction of firms producing frozen chicken paratha might be a threat which could be considered well before the start of production. can give a robust increase in brand equity and can promote their product demand overall in the market. a country where distribution of products is limited to specific areas within an urban sector hence grooming their product of under such circumstances has always been an opportunity for K&N’s.

Other than these promotional strategies we will ensure the availability of our product in access at all K&N’s outlets and the departmental stores and bakeries. The marketing process comprises of three stages given as follows:  Market segmentation  Target marketing  Positioning . To make our valuable consumers aware of our newly launched product we have decided to use this concept.” We are launching an unsought consumer product as none of our competitors or the rest has launched a product similar to ours. Television and radio ads are at the first priority. billboards at the best locations or different areas.

Geography. gender. race.MARKET SEGMENTATION Market Segmentation is the process that companies use to divide large heterogeneous markets into small markets based on distinct needs. family size. While dividing the market segments psycho-graphically we used the following: • Doctors . family lifecycles. generation etc.e. religions. psychographic and behavioral we divided the market into two of them given as follows:  Demographic: Dividing the market into groups based on demographic variables such as age. We while dividing the market segments demographically considered the following variables as the basis: • • • Gender (male or female) Family size (in order to get an idea regarding pieces per pack) Occupation (as our main focus is those related to tough jobs or studies or don’t have much time for cooking or most probably the break fasts)  Psychographic: Dividing the market segments into groups based on social class. lifestyle or personality characteristics.

This is called market targeting.• • • • • Engineers Business class Govt officials Bankers Students etc  Both the psychographic and demographic market segments can be accessed.  Serving these segments can result highly profitable  Can be attracted through easily designing of effective programs to serve them. MARKET TARGETTING Every organization selects a set of buyers based on same needs and characteristics in order to serve them. Two important steps regarding market targeting are:  Evaluating market segments The factors. basing on which we evaluated the target market segments are discussed below briefly: • Segment size and growth: .

• Segment structural attractiveness: This is an important section where we had a sharp search over the market to find out if there was any substitute product.In this section we made an analyzed check of the probability of the current segment sales and that expected for our product and whether we are able to generate the desired profitability.  Selecting target market segments The target market comprises of a set of buyers having common needs and sharing common characteristics selected by a company to serve. and if there was any competitor of ours with the chances of market diversion but we found none. . • Undifferentiated (mass) Marketing: it is a market coverage strategy in which a firm decides to ignore market segment differences and go after the whole market with one offer. the buying power of suppliers and buyers. We also analyzed the resources of the company with which company is highly able to serve its customers. • Company’s objective and resources: In this section we implemented a check over the relation between the company’s objective and the customers and we found an absolute positive relation between both.

It is of two types • Local Marketing: tailoring brands and promotions to the needs and wants of local customer groups-cities neighborhoods and even specific stores.  Competitive Advantages .• Differentiated (segmented) Marketing: it is a market coverage strategy in which a firm decides to target several market segments and designs separate offers for each. We have decided hostilities students. • Micro Marketing: the practice of tailoring products and marketing programs to the needs and wants of the specific individuals and local customer groups. job oriented men and women and teenagers. PRODUCT POSITIONING It is the evaluation of a company’s product’s position that what place it occupies in the market and how customers differentiate it from other products. These are the segments that can be called the time savers and our product will make them have a refreshing breakfast without time consumption. • Individual marketing: tailoring products and marketing programs to the needs and preferences of individual customer’s also known as one-to-one marketing CHOOSING A TARGET MARKET STRATEGY We analyzed the data gathered through the survey reports and decided to go after the concentrated marketing. Choosing positioning strategy To position the product different companies use different positioning strategies. • Concentrated (niche) marketing: it is a market coverage in which a firm goes after a large share of one or a few segments or niches.

PRICING. People liked a combination of spicy and cheesy flavors . As now a day’s time is money even ladies are working in offices so they are in search of products that are a complete meals for their family and are time saving. PROMOTION AND DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES PRICING STRATEGIES As we know that there are two types of new product pricing strategies • • Market skimming pricing Market penetration pricing For our product we have selected the market penetration pricing strategy. . We apply this strategy to keep our product prices lower so that by doing this we attract a large numbers of buyers and also to gain large market shares.We made a comparison of with the paratha if offered by Rahat Bakers the customers are keen to buy and about the packaging mostly people were willing to buy pack of six . (The K&N’s Jhatpat Chicken Paratha).

Psychological pricing.The reason for not using market skimming strategy is that as our product is an eatable product and there no sense of keeping high prices for an eatable product. Segmented pricing. We will also give discount to those customers who will buy in bulk or in large quantity. Basically these adjustment strategies are according to the taste. Promotional pricing. DISCOUNT AND ALLOWANCE PRICING We will apply this strategy by giving quantity discount to our customers. Time pricing strategy: . We segmented our product price in the following ways.       Discount and Allowance pricing. Segmented pricing: We launched our product in almost all the parts of the country with almost the same prices. Quantity Discount: We will give quantity discount by offering “buy one get one free” offers. Geographical pricing. we will adopt adjustment strategies in order to increase our sales and attract more customers. Following are the price adjustment strategies. PRICE ADJUSTMENT STRATEGIES After penetrating into the market. culture and the changing situation of the market. because as we know that skimming strategies are for luxury products. International pricing.

K&N’s is only serving nation wide so we set prices of our product nationally. as our focus is to capture more customers.In time pricing we will lower our prices according to different seasons. Price change could be a price cut or price increase. Initiating a Price Cut: We already set a low price for our product but we cut price of our product if our sales will not increase accordingly. . in that situation we will cut the price in order to increase sales and to capture market shares. We will reduce prices in Ramadan season. To compete with them we also lower our product price so that we can retain our market shares. Promotional pricing: This strategy involves temporary lowering of the prices of the product below the cost to increase the short run sales. International pricing: As K&N’s is not yet internationally recognized so we do not set international prices for . as its demand is more in that season. We apply this strategy when any one of our competitor lower its product price in order to grab market shares. Geographic pricing: In Geographic pricing we adopt freight absorption strategy. PRICE CHANGES: Some time companies have to initiate price change after developing pricing strategies because of different reasons. Freight absorption strategy: We do not add freight charges to our product price in order to keep our product price lower.

They think that there should be some problem with the product so the company is decreasing its product price or the customers may interpret it as the company is closing its business and they will not offer this product in future.Initiating a Price increase: Once our product achieved a position in a market and we set a good image in the consumers mind and we have a large number of potential buyers then we might increase our product price. giving discounts or improving quality of our product. We can also initiate our product price when our product demand increases and we can not supply according to the demand but INSHALLAH this situation will never come because K&N’s has its own poultry and breeding farms. They also think that the company is greedy and they are charging more prices for their product. Like if they low their price it will decrease our sales so we should adopt strategies to increase it by lowering our price. Responding to Price Change: If our competitors Changes the prices it affects our sales. On the other hand price increase also affects the buyers in a way that they think that this product is unobtainable unless they buy it soon. . Buyer’s Reaction to Price Changes: Changing in price has a great effect on the consumers mind. But our aim is to give good quality product in an affordable price. So we should also keep our competitors into consideration before lowering or increasing our product prices. Competitor’s Reaction to Price Changes: We should be aggressive while changing our product price and we have to change our product price according to the competitor’s product price. So we should analyze the change and react to it accordingly.

Direct Marketing: . because in personal selling there is a direct contact with the buyers. Through personal communication it is easy to persuade someone to buy your product. personal selling and direct marketing. Sales Promotions: In sales promotions we will use different discount strategies. giving short term incentives in order to increase our sales. These tools include advertisements. like wishing happy Eid or wishing any other special event to our customers.

Through Public relations it also creates a good word of mouth for our product which is the most efficient way of promoting a product. sale promotions. To Promote we use different promotional tools.Promotion Strategies: Promotion is the activity in which the company has a chance to interact with its customers. We develop our public relation by doing the work of social responsibility. Personal Selling: We will also promote our product through personal selling. Personal selling is more effective then any other promotion strategy. We also introduce sponsorships and discount coupons. Public Relations: To increase our sales we will also ties good public relations. public relations. We will use the persuasive advertising when we have a competition in the market.
