Question 3 SWOT analysis
This project has many aspects in terms of strengths: first, uniqueness of
the project idea. Second, the convenience our customers will receive from the
home delivery service at all times (24/7). Finally, the huge verity of vegetables
and fruits offered will allow our customers to choose easily.
Every business has its own weakness, and our project has some areas of
weakness such as the high price of organic food. Also, the project will be limited
in Jeddah area only and it will take time to have a strong positive reputation
among its customers. Moreover, the number of organic farms in Saudi Arabia is
not large, so it will be hard to make good deals with the farmers available. Finally,
organic produce is not well defined or understood by large number of consumers
The project has a great potential to grow since people are caring more
about the environment along with health as well. Moreover, the competitors
number is really minimal in the market.
The threats may include price fluctuation of the organic food since it
depends on a small number of organic farms. Also, organic food certification
might be hard in Saudi Arabia because the idea of organic food is not so popular.
Lastly, economic conditions would affect the consumer purchasing decision
because the price of organic food is higher than ordinary foods.
