The locality of Ormoc City is having a mass number of individuals
who offers calamay to market. The proponents found out that there are a
greater demand of calamay on this locality and will continue to increase on
the near future. Ormocanons are fond of eating Kakanin such as calamay.

greater advantage on demand of such product to the market.

Competition is a big factor on the field of business. It helps every
business to think possible ways to improve and to cope up with the
competition. Without competition the business sector becomes boring and
still in at ease.

customers. This calamay is perfect for those consumers whose stomachs are
full but want a squeeze in just a bit of Kakanin. Its the holidays time to
indulge a little. Calamay is made from various combination of food coloring,
white sugar, vanilla and rice flour.

The proponents added all their expenses in production to determine the
selling price of their calamay. Those expenses are the raw materials, direct
labor and manufacturing overhead expenses. And it will be added by the
mark-up price and production cost, it will be divided by the number of the
production they produced. As a result, their selling price is P xx x

TARGET MARKET
The business has no limit of target market. People of all ages are the
target customers, professionals or not, male or female and people of
different walk of life as long as they can afford to buy calamay in a box. The
proponents decided to engage in consignment for an easy distribution of the
product. The owner will distribute the product to any schools of schools,
restaurants and other establishments who offered food. This confirms a big
scope of market calamay will cater.

PACKAGING
Packaging is designed to be visually stimulating and provide information
about the product to help the customer be familiarized with it. It plays an
important role in a business as a medium in the marketing mix, in

promotional measures, and as an instrument to create brand identity. The


proponents used a box in packaging calamay to be sold at the market.
Calamay in box easy to handle and more convenient for the customers. The
box is recyclable, the buyers can use the box.

MARKETING CHANNELS

The business is in direct interaction with their customer having


their own establishment near on other establishments which serve as their
target consumers. The business did not engage in any consignment and just
depends on their capacity to sell their product on their own. The business
accepts orders if there are any orders and through the help of the motor cabs
as a source of transportation from the establishment to the places of
delivery. On terms of the transportation in purchasing the raw materials and
equipment, motorcabs are in a great need.
