The results show that some imports of stone and pone fruits from other countries are competitive to the local fruit growers (RMCG 2013). Furthermore, the high dependency on Asia market drives the Goulburn Valley to improve export competitiveness and more flexible to the market changes (RMCG 2013). It also shows that fruits imports exceeded the fruit export from 2009 to 2012 (Department of Agriculture Fisheries and Forestry 2013). Thus, it is necessary for the Goulburn Valley fruit growers to maintain their universal competitive

The product can be marketed effectively by fine-tuning the products attributes, price, delivery channels, and overall image for a carefully defined segment. Introducing the product into a niche segment will also ensure that Exotic Fruit Bars gains a foothold against larger more resourceful competitors, and eventually grows into a larger competitor with conceivably newer and more diversified product selections.
Income elasticity of demand is used to measure how consumers respond to changes to their income and their buying power or demand of a product. To better understand how changes of income affect consumers decisions to either buy less of a specific product or more of a specific product we use the income elasticity formula. The income elasticity formula is to divide the percentage change of the quantity of a particular product demanded over the percentage of change in a person’s income. The answer will result in either a positive or negative coefficient with a threshold of zero. If the results are a positive coefficient then that specific product is considered a normal/superior good; if the results are a negative coefficient that product is considered an inferior good.
People around the world consume numerous goods every day. There are several things that determine what quantities and how frequently they are consumed and those influences can either work in tandem or act individually to influence a person. It is these foundations that set an average for what consumers will purchase and the volume of goods to be created by agriculturalists and industrialists. This is known as economic consumption patterns, and these patterns are carefully studied by economists. With the data that they glean from this assessment economists can then use that information to provide the economy with data
Elasticity of demand is shown when the demands for a service or goods vary according to the price. Cross-price elasticity is shown by a change in the demand for an item relative to the change in the price of another. For substitutes, when there is a price increase of an item, there is an increase in the demand for another item. When viewing complements, if there is an increase in the price of an item, the demand for another item decreases. Income elasticity is shown when there is a change in the demand for a good relative to a change in income. This concept is shown in how people will change their spending habits when their income levels change. For

Standards of identity or quality do not exist for fresh or dried fruits and vegetables, or butter, but avocados, cantaloupes, citrus fruits, and melons do have such standards. An intriguing court case is Jam vs. United States, in which 62 cases discuss imitation fruit jams and if they indeed are misbranded. As they were labelled ‘imitation’ and not attempted to be passed as real fruit jams, it was found to be in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (340 U.S. 599 (1951)). Labelling has been in the news recently, and even when the law was written eighty years prior, apparently it was still a point of contention. Labels must state artificial flavorings, chemicals, preservatives, serving size, number of servings or units per container, calories, calories from fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, sugars, fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and if it is a raw agricultural commodity, pesticides or chemicals applied after harvest. Pesticide residue is determined by the Codex Alimentarius Commission, and this particular requirement refers to the Toxic Substances Control Act, which in section four declares that states may petition to establish a limit on acceptable residual levels. Infant formula has strict nutritional specifications under this section, compiled in Index
According to the agricultural census, in 1935 Orange County had roughly 70,000 acres dedicated to the production of citrus such as that of oranges (usda.gov) This represented a major form of income for the county, since approximately 70% of the oranges produced in the U.S. originated from California alone (cdfa.ca.gov). Orange county was at the center of those that benefited from the booming of oranges, but there was a small group who did not gained much out of this economy prosperity.

According to Exhibit 5, from 1985-1989, Orange crushes’ market share decreased from 22% (1985) to 8% (1989), this data shows that prior to the entrance of Coca Cola’s Slice and Pepsi’s Minute Maid, Orange Crush had more of the market share which at the time, they were positioned toward groups between the ages of 13-40.

Aside from the impact on price, the opening of an economy attracts imports into the domestic country, which results in the provision of variety for consumers.

These companies originated in Korea, Japan, United States, Finland and China respectively (Williams, 2015). Consumer’s gain from choice and, therefore, higher utility can be achieved.
