Developing an individual written Marketing Plan and Research Report for the student’s respective food company/brand/product (GREGGS UK) based on the secondary and primary data collection. The development of the plan should use marketing tools and techniques, which were introduced during lectures, seminars, and laboratory exercises. The report will also draw heavily upon primary data collected as part of the summative assessment (as outlined above). Each student will develop a general marketing plan and research report, but pay particular attention to one element of the marketing mix.
Marketing Plan and Research Report (Word length: 2000 words.
Individual students are required to develop a one-year Marketing Plan and Research Report for a food company/brand/product in the North East of England. It is important to note that rather than providing a description of the food company/brand’s current marketing strategy, the plan should outline the student’s suggested strategy for the company/brand over the next year. This part will count for 90% of the total module mark. The submission time for this report will be confirmed when this information becomes available.
The two parts of the assignment will be marked together and will constitute 100% of the total module mark.
