Executive Summary

Gardenia started out as a small in-store bakery at Bukit Timah Plaza, which grew into a large commercial bakery offering different kinds of bakery to consumers at affordable prices. They currently hold the biggest market share in Singapore and has successfully broke into Malaysia, Philippines, India and China.

We have chosen to design a marketing plan for Gardenia’s Wholemeal bread. Our goal is to make wholemeal bread the first choice for consumers when they prepare their breakfast, on a diet and when looking for a convenient source to satisfy hunger. Once they have made wholemeal bread their choice it will become a need for them. Our next step will then be to make them choose our brand and give them a reason to be loyal.

Currently in the market all the wholemeal bread are the same, we have decided to differentiate our product by added nutrients that will fight ageing when consumed daily. Statistics have shown that Singapore’s population is ageing thus people are favoring products that promote beauty hence our plan is to take advantage of this trend.

Our Primary target market are young adults to adults with families as they hold the most purchasing power and are growingly concern about their health. We want them to cultivate a habitual buying behavior for our product so they will go to a store and reach for our product unconsciously.

Over a twelve-month period, we will open our first flagship stall and hold different kinds of promotion to create awareness and build product familiarity for our improved wholemeal bread. Through the various promotions and events held we aim to increase our sales revenue to SG$120 million in the first year and 10% the subsequent years.
