Mamee Double Decker(M) Berhad durability also lies in its ability to grow their business network by penetrating into new exports market. That is proved to be true as mamee experienced a growth of 6. 2% in 2002 in its work to endeavor to new exports market.
The second durability of mamee is it has a good reputation among customers, since is becoming area of the choice created by household largely in Malaysia, mamee up to now had not fail to make an impression its consumers all over the world by giving a tip-top service from the process of creation to syndication, we can see that mamee products reach consumer easily as it is common in store from a little grocery store to large super markets.

Internationally, mamee got been rewarded internationally recognized ISO 9002 togethe riwth China Honors Certificates.
This includes the internal and external problem of Mamee Double Decker (M) berhad. The external problem cause by the corporation is really as reported in the star papers 2007, mamee has not yet flourish in gaining a market share in China as there is a negative progress in Mamee double decker procedure in China particularly, Mamee Double-Decker Food(Suzhou)Co. Ltd, demand for Mamee in China is low, thus producing low sales and income and consequently the business experienced incurred higher reduction. however the company did not loose hope and also have self-assurance in its China operation and Mmaee possessed appointed a advisor to resolve this matter.
The second external problem face by Mamee is high dependency of natural material from European countries so when there's a climb in Euro against USD the mamee double-decker earnings is afflicted since some of mamee products ingredients such as Mister potatao crips are imported from European countries, , thus when the price of raw material rises, thus giving pressure to its profit percentage. To be able to overcome this issue, mamee needs to do more reaseach and development to lessen its dependency from outside the house.
One internal problem in mamee dual decker is based on its small number of manufacturing facilities, considering that mamee products are sold all around the globe, with only five processing facilities, limited creation can be produced per day. If mamee want to extend its products, it'll be restricted as there's a limited space for production.
Since now consumer have become more health mindful, one chance for mamee double decker is to create something that is much healthier as it will give customer a more options for healthy good food. Mamee double decker plans to obtain health food distributor in an effort to expands its products. Mamee had identified several suppliers and the company plans to negotiates with this suppliers in providing health supplies of food
As customer becoming more educated and mindful about the meals they ingest, consumer tend to compare prices and quality of products with other brands. Currently in market there are several brands and product they offered very much like Mamee dual decker. Thus, the threat of mamee dual decker is the competition in market such as, Munchys, nestle, unilever foods.
Mamee do not only present an internal hazard, external threat in terms of competition in china is also evident. Mamee face a greater danger and especially in Shanghai, this is due to the intricacy of market in China in addition to variety of snack food products produced by them. IN Shanghai, mamee acquired to face opponents that have a greater market share like.
In order to evaluate the consumers' tastes on Mamee Double-Decker products, a survey has been conducted in a inhabitants of 100 respondents and 30 out 100 were considered as a sample to this research. There were 17 guy and 15 feminine involved in this sample. A set of 22 questions were asked through the survey procedure which majority of the respondents came from different background and the survey were conducted online. Prior to the surveys were taken in place, a short description of the company was given so the respondents somehow know very well what they might be expecting through the session.
Questions were sectioned off into three parts began with the non-public background information then likert size questions which assess their decision making to make buys and the last area of the questionnaire cover their own given answer consequently.
Result follow suits right after the study conducted was done. Majority of the respondents were Malays which addresses 91percent of the total sample taken. This is explained by the major ethnic in Malaysia is Malay followed by Chinese language with 6percent and others 3percent. As for income level, the majority of the respondents classified as middle income earners because their income level is range between RM1001 to RM3000 with 47percent are in this group as the staying 44percent belongs to lessen income earner like students and jobless teens.
Within this sample, the majority of the respondents are in their bachelor degree staying in urban area and living solitary life which eventually led them to such usage with the ration of 63:84:97 for everyone categories. 84percent of the respondents also say that they enjoyed eating snack food and beverages with an average consumption of just one 1 to 2 2 packs per day. Why this going on is because during the earlier age like young adults in college or university, they are prone to having an instant and light food as on the go. This somehow explained the viability of the effect.
When it comes to factors to decision making questions, the result was significantly expected. Almost all the respondents decided that they are extremely mindful in choosing their favorite snacks and beverages because this factor is due to their tastebuds. While prices became the second factor that influenced your choice making; 35percent arranged that price do play a vital role in their purchasing electric power.
Morever, 55percent of the respondents were also relatively agreed that Mamee Double-Decker do became their preferred brand and provide wide selection of products under one rooftop with their given competitive charges on the merchandise compared to other brands. So most likely consumers can simply make decision in making acquisitions and less misunderstandings.
Unfortunately, Mamee Double-Decker wasn't still at the par in offering good style because of their products because only 47percent from the total respondents were slightly buy into the company's flavour performance but the remaining disagree with it. However, 41percent of the respondents agreed that Mamee products are reachable in the market which eases them in making purchases.
Majority of the respondents bought Mister Potatoes and Mamee Monster treat that happen to be two of the most popular snack foods from Mamee Double-Decker and they usually got it at convenience stores like 7-eleven and hypermarkets like Tesco. As for substitution for Mamee brand, they usually go for Jack n Jill brand and Nestle that are two of the top snacks and beverages providers in the world. Thus this is threat for Mamee Double-Decker due to stiff competition from these big suppliers. Mamee Double-Decker should enhance their products taste and perhaps packaging to be able to remain competitive on the market despite having cheaper price strategy.
In a nutshell, Mamee Double-Decker is a very pleased home-grown snack foods and beverages company that proceeded to go global. However, Mamee Double-Decker cannot be relied truly on home markets with the currents products either local market or international market, instead they must keep doing product development program to be able to come out with new type of foods and drinks that suits the desire of the consumers worldwide.
