7. 4 Product Development
7. 4. 1 Product desirableness
Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon-type clime. with a hot and showery summer and a dry winter. It has warm temperatures throughout the twelvemonth. with comparatively small fluctuation from month to month. January is the coolest month with temperatures averaging near 26?C and May the warmest with temperatures from 33 to 36 ?C. It is warm and humid. In general. the temperatures runing from every bit low as 3?C during the dark in the winter season to every bit high as 40?C in the summer season ( Haque. n. d. ) . Bangladeshi people tend to be thirstier due to the warm temperature. So they prefer to take soft drinks and juices most of the clip. At present people are used to imbibe sugarcane juice from local sellers.
Sellers extract juice from sugar cane and show it to the client in a glass. These sellers normally sit in unfastened topographic points and are non concerned about hygiene factors. So from the readying to presentation of sugar cane juice an unhygienic attack is followed by the local sellers. Thirsty people are imbibing the juice as no more sugarcane juice suppliers are in the market presently supplying hygienic sugar cane juice. So desirableness for hygienic sugar cane juice drinks is really high.
7. 4. 2 Product demand
In Bangladesh. about 9 months of a twelvemonth is summer. So there is ever being of the demand for soft drinks. juice. energy drinks etc. Consumers of these are ready to purchase 250 milliliter. 500 milliliter and 1liter bundles. However. ab initio we are sing merely the 250ml bundle until it creates adequate demand for our merchandise in the market. It has been found that 15 spectacless ( 200 milliliter per glass ) of sugar cane juice are being sold per summer hr. The highest sale of the traditional sugar cane juice available right now is 400 spectacless in a 10-hour twenty-four hours that is 40 spectacless per hr. The lowest sale is 80 spectacless in a 10 hr twenty-four hours that is 8 spectacless per hr. Normally the lowest gross revenues yearss are the showery yearss ( Haque. n. vitamin D ) .
7. 5 Fabrication
In this merchandise fabrication procedure ( normally referred to as the bottling procedure ) H2O purification takes topographic point to guarantee that the spirit and quality of the drink are non affected by bacteriums or unwanted substances. A series of H2O purification procedures take topographic point such as curdling. flocculation. filtration and sterilisation. Rearward osmosis is progressively used as the chief concluding intervention procedure. Dissolved sugar. juice and spirit dressed ores are pumped into batch armored combat vehicles where they are carefully assorted doing sirup. Some sirup. such as the fruit-based sirup. is sterilized. The whole bottling procedure uses between 2 and 4 litres of H2O per litre of soft drink that is produced. and between 0. 5 and 1. 0 mega Js per litre of soft drink creates energy in human organic structure. Extra information sing the fabrication procedure has been covered in the Operations Plan subdivision.
8. 0 fiscal projections
