However as this advantage is not really a sustainable one and even if supermarkets only stock one brand, when Natureview decides to enter the channel it would have its great market share in the natural channel and brand image to support it.

Even though supermarkets sold 97% of all yoghurt consumed and natural food stores sold 3%, sales in supermarket had grown 3% per year but in
Chipotle's business is fully dependent on company-operated restaurants which explains the significance of this division to its stock. Chipotle enjoys higher average spend per customer than most of its competitors, given its high quality of food. For example, in McDonald's, the average spend per customer is around $4 whereas the corresponding figure in Chipotle is around $11-12. The company has successfully marketed itself as a restaurant serving natural, hygienic, and organic food in an upscaled ambiance, for which the consumers are often ready to pay a slight premium (“Chipotle Mexican Grill,” 2017). Another reason why the company enjoys a higher average spend per customer is because it has restaurants only in developed countries, where the average spend is usually higher than developing countries.
When Walmart entered the German market, they hoped to do very good business in Germany, it being the world’s third largest economy. However, it did not go like Walmart had hoped, in fact, their business there was a huge loss. The main reason for that was the cultural difference between USA and Germany. The first problem was their choice of acquisition. The company they chose to acquire, Spar, was already a weak link and Walmart failed to create the brand equity through these stores.

These changes would be expensive and long running so companies would find them overvalued and not profitable. We rated this 3 because Kraft has reduced the waste in 6 out 9 of their major manufacturing plants in the U.S. by 80% with plans to reduce waste disposal to zero by 2015. Our final key external factor under opportunities was the increased demand for packaged and processed foods around the world as a result of a change in lifestyles. These days it is more common to have double income families who are bound to have less time to cook and having extra cash for quicker meals. We felt that this was a fairly important success factor for the food processing industry because of the high demand for convenience food.
Theme: One major theme of Fast Food Nation is health. The theme presents itself in many different forms such as how inadequate food quality is affecting us or the amount of fast food people eat and how bad it is for them. The United States is the most obese country in the world and it all stems from fast food and the amount of it in which we eat. Fast food presents itself as a better option because it is always ready, tastes better than healthier food and it can be significantly cheaper than “healthy” food. Those three reasons alone can make fast food appear to be the best choice.
To do this it needs to have a competitive advantage over its its rivals. A competitive advantage is something a company does better than its rivals that gives it an advantage over its rival. Porter (1988) states that a firm performs many activities that can contribute to a firms relative cost position and create a basis for differentiation which can create a cost advantage that gives a firm a competitive advantage over its competitors. A company’s competitive advantage and competitive strategy are both interrelated. Competitive strategy is defined by Porter (1980) as a broad formula for how a business is going to compete, what its goals should be, and what policies will be needed to carry out those goals.

Competitive advantage of a firm is the edge that it has over its competitors (Altharti 2012).It is important to state that competitive advantage (CA) cannot be achieved without a business strategy or business model. It is the business strategy, which is the management game plan for creating value for stakeholders and earning a reasonable return on investment that gives a company a competitive advantage over rivals in terms of higher financial performance on revenue, return on investment etc. The author accepts that Porter’s generic strategy and value chain are important tools in understanding the competitive strategies being deployed by rivals in any industry analysis. An understanding of the generic strategies such as the broad low cost provider, broad differentiation strategy, and narrow focus strategies on cost and differentiation being deployed by competitors can provide opportunities for existing and potential competitors by trying to achieve a lower cost or better differentiation by rivals. The value chain is an internal analysis of how an organization organizes
