The last alternative for estimating fixed expenses brings the total to $4,064,000.00, which will generate a small Net Profit of $1,085,320.00. Although expanding Strike Roach Ender to 19 cities can be profitable, the potential losses Zoecon could take from an effective advertising and promotion strategy for this venture far exceed the potential rewards. The $4,064,000.00 would not be sufficient enough advertising to gain a significant market share in all 19 cities over a substantial amount of time. The general “rule of thumb” approach is more accurately what would be spent for the new Strike Roach Ender product, in which case a major loss would be taken, making this venture not financially feasible.
All over the world the demand for food is increasing. The human population is anticipated to grow from six billion in 2000 to nine billion in 2050. Meat production is predicted to double within the same amount, as demand grows from rising wealth. Pastures and fodder already deplete seventy percent of all agricultural land, therefore increasing livestock production would need increasing agricultural land area at the expense of rain forests and different natural lands. Officers at the United Nations Food associated Agriculture Organization recently predicted that beef might become an extreme luxury item by 2050, like caviar, as a result of rising production prices. Edible insects have long been used by ethnic groups in Asia, Africa, Mexico and South America as cheap and sustainable sources of protein, and the major role of entomophagy in human food security is well-documented. Up to 2,086 species are consumed by 3,071 ethnic groups in 130 countries. While more attention is needed to fully assess the potential of edible insects, they provide a natural source of essential carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals and vitamins and offer an opportunity to bridge the gap in protein consumption between poor and wealthy nations but also to lessen the Ecological footprint. Some argue that the combination of increasing land use pressure, climate change, and food grain shortages due to the use of corn as a biofuel feedstock will cause serious challenges for attempts to meet future
The relevant factors in this decision involve looking at the potential advantages of an IGR (insect growth regulator) over the traditional adulticide products currently in the market. With toxicity and safety concerns of these types of products being top of mind for many consumers, the newer IGR products should bring welcome benefits to end consumers using the product on a regular basis.
If Zoëcon decides to launch Strike ROACH ENDER in all 19 cities, it will cost an estimated $7,020,500 ($5,542,500 less 4 initial cities)3. If these cities yield the same profit as the original four in the first 6 months, Zoëcon will have to absorb $5,718,145 in losses4. The low purchase rate could be due to the nature of the product taking 120 days to effectively reduce roach population, and 6 months of test marketing did not reflect accurate consumer buying trends for the product. It may also be attributed to the premium pricing, which were 50-75% higher than competitors. I suggest an additional year of test marketing in the first four cities before a full launch into the consumer market is considered.
In the early 1940’s, a new technology emerged that was able to successfully combat crop-damaging and disease-carrying insects. A new age of synthetic chemical pesticides use arose. After their impressive success in fighting deadly insect-borne diseases during World War II, pesticides were used widely to combat insect pests for agriculture and public health. Few people challenged the benefits of the new scientific and technological products and many embraced pesticide use with enthusiasm. Despite its success, doubts about pesticide use began to appear a decade later in the 1950’s, when the government began a vigorous pesticide campaign across the country against insect pests. Scientists began reporting heavy losses of avian and
The second option is to establish trade relations with Pest Control Operators (PCOs) that will distribute the product. The third option was to sell hydroprene to a third party such as d-Con, Black Flag, and Raid for use in their products.

The Cardon Carpet Mills Company is a carpet company that distributes its line through seven different floorcovering wholesalers around the United States. This company focuses on manufacturing a full line of medium to high priced carpet primarily used residentially. The senior executives, looking to integrate direct distribution and bypassing wholesalers, are seeking the best outlet for increasing profit. With increased pressure from retailers to shave their profit margins to accommodate pricing demands the wholesalers wanted Cardon Carpet Mills to consider a reduction in its prices. This will play a large part in how the company will decide if direct distribution is a
Truly Nolen of America, Inc. was founded in 1938 in the midst of the Great Depression with $500 dollars in capital and a strong work ethic, provided by the founder of the company, Truly Wheatfield Nolan, who operated the small company out of part of his home improvement shop in Miami, Florida (Harbison, 2013). The company provided pest control services that were known for their effectiveness and efficiency. The founder of the company was known to be a perfectionist and a workaholic, always available to provide effective services for customers. In fact, it was the founder’s knack for solving pest-control problems that motivated him to enter the pest control business in the first place. During this time period, the business prospered and expanded with affiliates in the United States and Mexico, however the first large-scale expansions would require a change in leadership. In 1955, one of Truly Wheatfield Nolan’s sons, Truly David Nolan, began developing his own concept for the business. After working with his father on and off as an adolescent and young adult, Truly David Nolan learnt the basics of the business, but did not work with his father long—in fact none of his brothers did—because the perfectionism and mindset of his father was difficult to endure for along period of time.

With the selling season for residential pool chemicals almost over, Soren must make its decision on a push and pull strategy to best salvage what remains of the current year and position Coracle for next year’s selling season. Reaching the goal of $1.5 million in sales of Coracle has become increasingly unrealistic, so it is important to at least see more improvement in the amount of sales for the rest of the year. Because of such poor sales performance in the first half of the year, Soren must choose the channel management strategy requires minimal investment and best creates a chance for Coracle to be in greater demand going into year two.
