The company supplies product to all the near and remote areas of Zambia. The Greenish Farm is owned by two Zambian partners that are Akamonwa and Bawa. Moreover, the people are well acquainted with the company and its operation. However, over the past few years, the company has noticed that farmers do not receive fair value as per the expectation and due to that they registered decline in their sales and income. Thus, it is affecting their growth and product marketing. Apart from that being said, the numbers of competitors have risen which is one of the cause that small scale farmers are not able to meet up their expected level of performance. Therefore, in order to maintain their market cap and customer circle, the company has decided to penetrate into the field of commodities market so that best product can be delivered to the customers and better value can be provided to small scale farmer (Baligh, 2007). Therefore, Greenish Farm will be developing commodity market for farmers to sell their product so that best quality farm product can be traded into the commodities market.

It is evident from the early published report that in last five years, the business that trades in primary products has registered significant growth up to approx 30% which helps them to receive better value for their product from commodity market (Bird, 2010). Therefore, it provides an effective opportunity for the small scale farmer to market their product in the commodity market and receive right value for their product (Barringer, 2010).

On the other hand, in order to have better understanding of the industry, Porter’s Five Forces Model will be effective and much clear picture can be drawn.

Industry Rivalry: The intense and tough competition in the industry can cause challenges to the prospect of the business (Clarke, 2010). The company, Greenish Farm can face significant competition from other companies that are operating in commodity market with hard commodities such as oil, gold, rubber, etc. Moreover, Greenish Farm can also have difficulty from existing firms that are already dealing in agricultural products. However, as the company will trade product which is grown hydroponically will help them to gain benefit and generate satisfactory profit (Dess, 2012). Therefore, in order to gain right price for product, the company will have to trade in high quality product.

Threat of substitutes: The substitute product can pose significant challenges that can affect the operation of Greenish Farm in the proposed market. The presence of organic agricultural products in the market can have serious affect on the earnings of the company and the company may not be able to increase their sales (Drummond et al. 2012). Therefore, the company will have to charge reasonable price and providing high quality product all time.

Bargaining power of buyers: As the company has decided to provide products which will be produced hydroponically, therefore, buyers may not have such power to negotiate on price on the hydroponically produced agriculture products (Finch, 2010). Therefore, Greenish Farm can gain effective price for their products and can receive healthier profits.

Bargaining power of suppliers: It is evident that if the supplier has the power to bargain then they can take away maximum earnings of the business that can decline the profit level. In the given situation, it is clear that the company will grow their product by their own therefore; there is not much influence of suppliers on the company. However, the company may require suppliers to trade the product in commodity market (Furnham, 2012). Therefore, strong bonding has to be built with the suppliers.

Threat of new entrants: The commodity market has provided great opportunity to the small scale farm to enter into the market and receive benefit from investment (Goksoy and Ozsoy, 2007). Therefore, it can be threat for Greenish Farm to operate in successful way. Thus, the company has to provide quality product all the time and in regular form so that they hold their loyal customers and clients.

 

3. Products

Greenish Farm will deal in the vegetable products such as tomatoes, cucumbers and other products of farmers. Moreover, the products will be traded that are grown hydroponically or traditionally so that quality products can be supplied to customers (Hajro, 2012). Apart from that, growing product under high tech tunnels will help the company in gaining longer and faster growth and harvest labour can be decreased by approx 75% and also harvest time can also be declined. Therefore, the company can effectively trade in the commodity market with their specific products.

4. Market Analysis

The owner of Greenish Farm has decided to penetrate in the market of Ndola, Zambia as per the assumption; the company will be able to ensure significant benefit and can gain right value for their product (Heagney, 2012). Moreover, the selected location provides effective environment for trading product and the company can generate expected customer base and clients for their agriculture products. Further, the market holds retailers such as Veg Express and Veg Centre. Therefore, company can supply their product to these retailers and other available supermarkets.

The other market segments that will be considered are oriental vegetable markets that require both semi-organic and organic vegetables, processors of vegetable, commodity and farmers’ market and roadside stands. Therefore, it will help the company to market their product and receiving correct value from the market and from the clients.

4.2 Target Market

The prime target of the company will be small scale farmers of rural areas. The other target market that will help the Greenish Farm to generate valuable earnings and price for their products is export markets and retail outlets in the selected market (Hughes, 2012). Therefore, company can gain high benefit from the commodity market and it can increase the value of the company and in future more number of customers may prefer to deal with Greenish Farm for the product.

5. Strategy and Implementation

The strategy of the Greenish Farm is to earn profit by receiving right value of the product supplied in the commodity market. Further, the company will utilize advanced agricultural technology so that quality production can be generated and it will help in receiving industry advantage. Moreover, exact price will be received for the supply of product. Therefore, the main goal of the company in the first year is to develop the entire project and engage all the required resources so that product can be produced all the year (Kaufman, 2010). On the other hand, the long term plan of the company is to grow more selective agricultural product and penetrate to further other commodity market from where they can generate huge profit margin.

5.1 Competitive Edge

The main competitive advantage of Greenhouse Farm is producing products using hydroponic technique which ensures whole year production. Moreover, the company has huge experience in the agricultural product industry and the company has idea that which product will do good business and will ensure better price value in the commodity market (Kleiner, 2008). Therefore, it will help the company in having a competitive edge over other new or existing competitors in the market.

 

5.2 Marketing Strategy

The effective marketing strategy will help in gaining maximum benefit and increasing the sale of the products. Therefore, Greenish Farm will trade and supply their goods to the decided outlets aggressively. Moreover, local markets will be focused initially to have a long term benefit. On the other hand, the hydroponic facilities will be used efficiently and smartly so that the company does not fall short of products in marketing the product in commodity markets (Lambin and Schuiling, 2012).

5.3 Marketing Plan

In order to gain higher benefit from the proposed business, the Greenish owners have formed effective marketing plan that will ensure better return and fair value for the product.

Pricing Strategy: The Greenish Farm will be fixing the price of the products as per the current market value as it will help the company to receive fair price from the retailers and other stores for supplying the products. On the other hand, the company will not fix the price below the market value as it will lead to losses for them and they will not be able to cover up their cost or invested amount (Liozu and Hinterhuber, 2012). Moreover, if company tries to charge low price for product then it can create doubt in the mind of clients about the quality of product. Therefore, accurate price has to be set so that the company can market their product effectively in the commodity market.

Promotion: Greenish Farm will promote their commodity market by putting banners and hoardings or circulating brochures in the rural areas so that more numbers of small scale farmers can be become aware about the move of the company. Therefore, farmers can turn up to commodity market in order to get right price for their product in the market. This will not only help the Greenish Farm but also it will help the farmers that are not fairly paid for their product (Longenecker, 2008). The small scale farmers can make decision about which product they want to market in commodity market so that they can generate better income out of it.

Engaging Employee: Greenish Farm will hire efficient employee that will inform small scale farmers about the benefit that they can generate from the commodity market. Therefore, the small scale will able to understand that will gain and the amount of price that they will receive for their product (Lowson, 2011). On the other hand, the employee can train the farmers how to improve the quality of the product so that they can get accurate value for each product supplied. Moreover, the company can engage different employee for different kinds of products such as agricultural products or mined products. Therefore, each small scale farmers can gain better value and profits over their cost (Luther, 2011).

Forecasting Sale: Greenish Farm will be engaged in predicting the sale that different farmers group can generate from their specific products. Therefore, it will help the farmers to decide when to take their products in commodity markets so that they can receive high margin and compete with the other people that sell products in big supermarket or retail house (Lymbersky, 2009). It has been computed that small scale farmers can be able to generate sale up to 495000 in starting year which will gradually get better in the next year. 

Situation Analysis: Greenish Farm will use the SWOT analysis to study the current condition of the small scale farmers so that better commodity market can be designed for them and receiver higher benefit. The major strength that has been noticed by the company is that the farmers have huge knowledge about the agricultural products and which products can provide them higher advantage (Mackay and Wilmshurst, 2012). On the other hand, the weakness of the small scale farmers is that they are not able to gain right value for selling their product in the regular market. Apart from that, the major opportunities for the farmers are that they can turn up to the commodity market as they can receive beneficial clients from whom they can receive fair amount for product. Moreover, the major threat that can be faced by the small scale farmers is from the farmers that are technology equipped as they can produce high quality product for which they can gain better value than the small scale farmers (MacMillan and Venkataraman, 2009).

 

6. Management Summary

In order to look out to the effectiveness of commodity market, the Greenish Farm has engaged efficient management that can provide significant and satisfactory support to the small scale farmers so that they can trade their product effectively. On the other hand, the company has hired project manager will help in developing feasible commodity market for the farmers (Marburger, 2012). Therefore, a personnel plan has been designed that comprises project manager that will handle job relating to design and constructing the commodity market. Further, a consultant will be appointed so that right guidance can be sought for creating an effective and beneficial commodity market.

7. Operation Plan

Location: The Greenish Farm has decided to develop and start commodity market in Ndola, Zambia as the management of the company has found that small scale farmers that belong or reside near to this location suffer problem in getting right value for the product and also a perfect market where they can trade their product (McDaniel and Gates, 2012). Therefore, location of Ndola is feasible for the company to accumulate the products of farmers and provide them right price for their different product. Therefore, the small scale farmers may not be cheated from the business people. Moreover, the commodity market will allow around 30 small scale farmers to trade in one time.

Supply and Inventory Management: In order to develop commodity market, the company will be arranging all the required resources and materials that will help in designing a commodity market in large scale that can provide service to maximum farmers. On the other hand, the company is engaged with the suppliers and build strong relationship so that required material can be organized for the development of commodity market (Mooradian et al. 2012). Apart from that, the company will remove the inventory that is not productive or useful in the commodity market. Moreover, the company will design a warehouse so that farmers can place their product till its sale. Therefore, small scale farmers can organize their product and will also receive high advantage from commodity market.

Training Plans: The Greenish Farm has to provide training to the staff so that product of the farmers can be arranged and handled in effective way so that the product does not get damaged. On the other hand, the training will help the employees to provide required detail to small scale farmers about the benefit in trading in commodity market so that they can take their product from regular market to commodity market (Morris et al. 2011).

Assess Market performance: The Company will engage a market specialist that will assess the performance of the commodity market whether the farmers are receiving the expected benefit or not (Mullins, 2009). Therefore, if the market will show positive result then the company will penetrate to other location to serve the farmers.

Budget Plan: The budget will be planned for developing a commodity market in Ndola so that large small scale farmers can be served and better value can be provided to them. The effective budget will be prepared which will ensure better profit and revenue to the different groups of farmers (Nielsen, 2011).
