    Breakfast is the first meal of the day and is very important for everyone

    especially children as it provides nutrients such as calcium, iron, vitamins

    as well as protein and fiber.

    Study in 4 metro cities - Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai found that

    nearly 32% skip breakfast and reasons to blame like no time and not

    feeling hungry and late night food habits

    85% of the subjects from Mumbai strongly feel that cereals are good as

    breakfast for kids.

    in the form of cake.

    2.1 External/Macro Environment Analysis


    Since our product is quite specialized, the prices are quite high. In the event

    of extreme inflation or a recession, foods like breakfast cake may become

    a luxury to a lot of people and become something that can be avoided. In

    this case, in order to keep the revenue up and have customers buy our

    products, we may have to decrease the price of our products. However,

    Our Breakfast cake may suffer some losses since we do pay a high price for

    our suppliers.


    People are becoming more health conscious lately so foods like breakfast

    cake that are high in sugar can become less popular, especially with

    parents buying it for their children. Furthermore, trends are constantly

    changing and with desserts and pastries, the trends can change as well.


    Technology does not play a huge impact on a cake manufacturing

    company however, as technology does improve, it can allow us to make

    our website and our business more well known to the public especially

    when we consider expanding out to other countries. New cooking

    products could make the process more effective and increase

    2.2 Market Analysis

    The baking industry which is estimated to be a Rs.5000-crore

    industry by 2015 is expected to generate more employment and revenue

    in the next few years.

    Blame it on the fast-paced urban lifestyles, rising disposable incomes,

    experimental palates or the increasing number of working women in the

    country, the Ready-to-Cook food industry is on the upswing. The category

    has emerged as the next best alternative to a home cooked meal. The total

    processed foods market in India stands at Rs 1500 crore, out of which the

    Ready-to-Cook segment share is Rs 600-700 crore (barring noodles) and is

    expected to grow around 20-25 per cent over the next five years. (Figures

    On the other hand, bakery industry is one of the high growth segments of

    the country. As a result of changing eating habits in urban India during


  • recent years, due to social considerations and the improved standard of

    living and also as a result of the influence of globalization, bakery industry

    in India is going through impressive growth rates.

    Bakery products are flour-based food baked in an oven such as bread,

    cakes, pastries and pies. These are of mass consumption in view of its low

    price and with rapid growth and changing eating habits of people, bakery

    products have gained popularity among masses.

    According to report by Research and Markets, the bakery industry has

    achieved third position in generating revenue among the processed food

    sector. The market size for the industry is pegged at US$ 4.7 billion in 2010

    and is expected reach US$7.6 billion by 2015 and to reach US$10.6 billion

    by 2018

    The per capita consumption of bakery products in India, as it stands today,

    is one to two kg per annum, which
