Sysco emphasized value-added services to buyers such as credit, menu planting, and inventory management to shift” (Porter, 2008, p. 90). Like Paccar, Sysco knows how to make them different from their competitors in the high competitive industry.

For the business-level, Trader Joe’s adopted a differentiation focus strategy. According to our textbook with this strategy, Trader Joe’s seeks to differentiate in its target market. They rely on providing better service than broad-based competitors. Specifically, they focus on the special needs of the buyer in other segments (Dess, Page 159).

As of today, the fast food industry has become an essential element to many individual lives. And with that being known, the interactions between those who rely and contribute to the fast food industry are critically observed. When observing the interactions made between the customers and the workers within a fast food environment from a sociologist 's perspective, it is quite evident that the fast food industry helps maintain the stability of society and create the distance between the rich and the poor. According to the structural-functional pioneer Herbert Spencer, who believed that "society functions like the human body, and the social structures operate together to preserve society". It can be concluded that the fast food industry plays a major role in the stability of society.
Although his ultimate vision is to see local economies and communities flourish, using the food industry as an analogy makes the possibility of survival in smaller communities seem much more plausible. Although McKibben’s sample size for his year of eating locally was a family of one, it demonstrated that surviving on local economies, on local food, is more than possible. It must be noted that this change would not just benefit the environment, but, for McKibben, restructuring society into smaller, local communities may be necessary for humanity’s survival (McKibben 227). McKibben’s focus on the ever-growing popularity of industrial agriculture helps to demonstrate the dangers of the “efficient” mindset society as been obsessed with since World War II. For McKibben the goals of constant growth have been warped and corrupted, and has damaged the environment and society as a whole.
To understand how bread reflects an individuals relationship to the global food system, Bobrow-Strain structures his book by providing numerous dreams that pertain to bread and the consequences that these dreams have on consumer demands. The chapters explore dreams such as, purity, cognation, control, abundance, health, strength, peace, resistance and status. Bobrow-Strain begins each chapter exploring the dream and the intentions that this dream set out to have which ultimately lead to bigger unintended consequences. This allows for him to demonstrate how food is always more than fuel for our bodies, it creates socioeconomic and emotional impacts. Bobrow-Strain sets out to make the reader realize that the dream surrounding “ good food” no longer focuses on the food we eat but rather the changes that need to be made within the food system, however his work leaves the reader with many unanswered questions on the measures that need to take place in order to make transformation
The food industry is expected to grow rapidly in the future due to improving lifestyle and rapid urbanization (“Global Fast Food Market”, 2017). With this potential demand created, KHC can easily capitalize the growing foodservice industry and tailor their products to the specific demographic (Bhasin, 2018). Another strong resource KHC can utilize is focusing on nutritious products. As the foodservice industry continues to grow, KHC should further explore on expanding its product portfolio to include healthier options. Natural and organic brands, as well, as small labels buying from local farms, have become an essential part of the consumer lifestyle (Tarkan, 2015).
MINI REPORT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GLOBALISATION GREATER THAN THE DRAWBACKS? In my perspective, globalisation is a practice by which the world is becoming progressively connected as a result of immensely increased trade and cross culture diversity. Globalisation enhances the use of outsourcing and offshoring products. The biggest companies are now not only national firms but are replaced by multinational corporations with subsidiaries in many countries.
