1. A fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) company has an established cooking oil brand named “Good Life”. The company enjoys the second highest market share in this segment and is a familiar brand. The market leader in this segment has started offering 1 LTR pouch free with 5 LTR can which has increased the market share of the leader and has decreased the market share of “Good Life”. From a reliable source, the company under-stands that the current promotion of the market leader will be continued for the next 6 months. “Good Life” is contemplating a significant price reduction by offering 5LTRs of “Good Life” at the price of 4 LTRs. They feel that an additional 1 LTR pouch on the 5LTR can would incur cost of production, packaging and the transportation cost of the free pouch, though it already offers a 1 LTR pouch in the market. Some executives in “Good Life” feel that the customer may find a free 1 LTR pouch with the 5 LTR can more attractive and value for money than the price reduction. The question in front of “Good Life” is whether to offer a 1 LTR pouch free with a 5 LTR can OR reduce the price of the 5 LTR can to the Price of 4 LTRs.

How should be this research design implemented?
