Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Opportunities There are several opportunities available to us in this industry as there are lots of people who understand the dietary benefits of cashew nuts and are convincing others to consume cashew nuts. Threats Every business faces threats every now and then and so the arrival of a new competitor to our same location, offering the same services is a threat as well as stringent government policies regarding the agro processing industry. Cashew Nut Processing Business Plan MARKET ANALYSIS Market Trends Cashew nuts have become one of the most consumed nuts amongst other types of nuts; this is because of the positive effects of nuts such as these on the human body. However in order to meet the growing demand, genetically modified crops have been looked into which will help those in the business to keep up with demand. Nuts especially those of cashew contain nutrients such as fiber, proteins, folate and several other minerals, and this has encouraged more people to consume this nut daily. Cashew nuts which come from the cashew tree grow in tropical regions and as such businesses that process these nuts in these regions spend less to get them, as against those that process the nuts in areas where the cashew trees dont grow. Our Target Market Our processed organic cashew nuts will be one that will be made available to all our customers in our target market. Our target market however at a glance cannot be restricted to just a group of people, which is why we have conducted a market research that will enable us fully determine who we are really going to sell our products to. Below therefore are the sales projections for Crunchy Cashew Nuts Inc and based on several assumptions and data gotten from the market; First Fiscal Year-: $400,000 Second Fiscal Year-: $750,000 Third Fiscal Yearling: $1,500,000 Note as estimations.
