FINDINGS

Through the survey it is revealed that people love SHAN and that is why Shan is the market
leader of packed spices in Pakistan
1) Majority of the customers of Shan biryani are women age between 20 years to 40 years
.
2) Majority of the customer’s monthly income was between 25000 to 75000 thousand and
majority of the customers belongs to middle class and upper middle class

4) People prefer Shan due to quality of the product
5) customer loyalty is high towards Shan because of the taste and quality
6) customers are not fully aware regarding full range of shan biryani Masala but they love
Shan Bombay Biryani Masala
12

7) Shan distribution network is very strong that is the reason Shan is available every where
from small shops to super stores

Recomandation

1) People purchase Shan because of its quality and flavor so its challenge for Shan to
maintain both quality and flavor keeping focus on price as survey without compromising
in price as competition in market is high if shan increases the price they may start losing
their customers
2) As most of the young youth are active on social media if Shan wants to capture this
young youth that have to make their social media marketing much stronger
3) Shan should start promotion of less famous product making them famous among people
through this they may increase their sales
4) We also recommend shan to target rural areas as people still using unbranded spices it
would be opportunity to Shan to capture that untapped market

Learning:

Quality and taste are most important factors in food industries people prefer quality if it is
made affordable with quality and taste it can do magic so that in the case of Shan
