The main objective of this report is to create an understanding of the biscuit industry. This report provides all relevant information related to the biscuit industry such as its production process, its progress and development through the years, the major competitors in it and all other pertinent facts required for analyzing the industry.
We did a fair bit of research on the topic, interviewing Ms Najma Khan, Vice President Human Resource and Muhammad Yamin Khanzada, Assistant Manager HR & Admin currently employed at English Biscuit Manufacturers (EBM), Pakistan. We also interviewed sources that gave us knowledge about the biscuit market and how it is shaping out in Pakistan.
The report covers the topic in detail and gives valuable information, which is enough to point out the market structure of biscuit in our country. Currently EBM dominates our biscuit scenario, however other brands like CBL (Continental Biscuits Limited) have been consistent in their efforts to remain in the market and have kept posing competition to EBM. Inspite of that, EBM has shown a consistent exponential growth in increasing market share every year.
Biscuit in Pakistan is a product that has made a considerable market in the previous decade. However we feel there is still place for improvement and Pakistanis on the whole are still not currently at international standards. EBM, with the biggest share may be a force to reckon in the industry but with products such as this, innovation may just be the key to success.
