Problem 1

- The variant and flavour are too much, so consumer confused to choose and increase the cost


If cow girl have more variant, cow girl must educate the consumer about what flavour they have and what variant that cow girl have. They can educate consumer by brochure, be a sponsor in the seminar. Example : if there is a seminar and provide a snack, cow girl can be a sponsor of it. Every product have their own performance in addition to the product's sales and profit contribution. Product with poor performance should be eliminated.

- Since U.S only have15 % of consumers that eating hot and spicy, the variant of Chocolate that Cowgirl offer dont have a big segment in US.

The flavour is too spicy for american people.

Problem 4

- How to choose which one is better between online selling or retail, and about people cant track through the website


Keep selling in online and retail, because if cow girl stop in retail, not a good decision to stop 2/3 sales of cow girl.
