For this extensive study that involved a thorough brand audit of Olpers, we have many people to be thankful towards. However, first and foremost, we thank the Almighty Allah for giving us the mental and physical strength to fulfill this huge task and for opening up avenues for us when the task at hand seemed difficult to accomplish. Out of the numerous people we want to thank, we would like to firstly extend our immense gratitude towards Dr. Kamran Siddiqui for being our teacher and thus, our perpetual guide throughout this course “Brand Management” and this project. We are also really thankful to Mr. Atiq Khan, the Brand Manager of Olpers and other members of the Olpers brand team that provided us with highly useful information regarding Olpers the brand and the various branding and marketing strategies used for it. Last but not the least we would like to thank all the survey respondents who were courteous enough to give us time for filling out our questionnaires and answering our questions in consumer interviews. Out of these people we would especially like to thank the ladies living in Defence who were polite enough to show interest in our Olpers focus group and came and provided us with highly useful insights regarding Olpers.
