Executive summary
Our company, Wan Thai foods Industry Company limited is one of the leading manufacturers of the instant noodles in Thailand. We take great pride in knowing that products bearing the name “Yum Yum” will continue to play important and vital roles in food industry in Thailand. We have more than 30 years continuing proud success with “Yum Yum” the Thai real instant noodles. If you are talking about instant noodles, it must be “Yum Yum”. By choosing “Yum Yum”, you are sure to get great satisfaction because it has the great taste and the variety of flavors. The "Yum Yum" instant noodles brand has been familiar to customers in Thailand for many generations. However, when we are targeting to Singapore, it is important for “Wan Thai” to come out with specific targeting and product innovation. Therefore, we have to maintain our strength and try to improve our weakness for our product to be more attractive, cheaper and easier to recycle and more durable than usual. Most of the Tom Yum noodles are famous but other flavor are needed to be tastier and it should be more nutritious to be a market leader because we will face the strong competitor on the target market. We provide the different taste options for different consumer and expand the distribution network with 24 hours stores (7eleven and cheers) and we produce family package which includes 6 bags (e.g., chicken flavor, duck flavor, Kimchi flavor, shrimp flavor, beef flavor and vegetable flavor in 1 package). This is especially for the people who go out for picnic which can take the advantage of the existing brand and standing of the company. First we will briefly discuss about Situational analysis based on external and internal factors which will bring opportunities and threats for our product then we describe our aim and targeted market. After that, we explain the description of marketing strategies and implementation. Finally, evaluation and control program based on Auditing, Surveying and Contingency plan will be discussed. We confident that this marketing plan can fulfill the company focus on the future development of our product.
