Derek Rotz MBA-502-61/03 3/2/18 In the case of Ace Fertilizer Company, Assistant Director of Manufacturing , Abby Conroy is faced with an ethical issue that was presented to her by boss George Smilee who is the Director of Manufacturing. Ace Fertilizer’s business is to produce lawn & gardening fertilizer, and the company is known for delivering the highest quality special order products. The fact that they can deliver on time with top quality is what helps to drive their business. They use a consistent mark up on special orders at an 80% mark up over the cost of the orders. Abby prefers to allocate indirect cost using activity-based costing for these orders, but recognizes that not all costs are driven by volume of output.
The brand designer, Walter Landor, states that “ Products are made in the factory, but brands are created in the mind”. Landor’s companies have designed many logos that are bold and thought provoking (for example the Fedex logo) and the simplicity of each one is what works so well. My understanding is that branding is a unique name, design or logo that companies use as an identifier to distinguish their products or services from others in the same market place, designed to attract the attention of customers and instil loyalty in the product. For my unit 3 project I decided to brand Spanish tapas. This being my heritage, I wanted to explore traditional Spanish culture and cuisine further and it was inspired by my grandmother 's favorite recipes that she taught me to cook.
Fair Trade began as an early effort to get products from different areas of the globe, particularly from the Global South, to the US (lecture). At this point in time, most Fair Trade goods are sold to further the development and living conditions of the artisans and producers of the products being sold (Brown, pp. 2). Coffee is the most well known product of Fair Trade, and the terms of production are rather similar to that of organic. In essence, the makers of these products get Fair Trade certification for their items if they can ensure that their workers are being treated and paid fairly.

The advantage of Yankee Candle when compared to other smaller stores’ transition area, is the perfumed product. The smell of Yankee Candles actually reaches the customer from the door, and this USP propels the customer further. It means that they are more likely to pass the initial transition area and complete the obligatory/ cursory loop of the store. As Yankee Candle has a very specific aim as a store, in that it mainly sells a very specific type of product, the transition stage is not actually all that important to the store’s makeup. This is also true because of the smaller size of the store.
