SuggestionsIn my opinion there are some flaws in their implemented strategies

Actual Position Charging High prices----unaffordable for Children & low Class. Extensive demand of two brands in Market. Both brands have dominance in the market

Suggestions Do mass production & cuts the advertising cost as they have already high brand equity. An opportunity of launch diet ice cream for the patient of diabetes which will be a profitable segment in the coming future. They Should implement Cooperative advertising strategy which costs will be splitted b/w the retailer and manufacturer which will be beneficial for the customers. They should charge less than the competitors (OMORE S& YUMMY ice cream) relief to the customers especially children.
