Analysis the advantages and disadvantages to Barr’s of its product mix. (10’) A. G. Barr is a traditional company mainly operated soft drinks. Product mix of A.

G. Barr can be categories into two parts: one is Barr’s Own Brands and one is Barr’s Franchise Brands. Advantages of Barr’s Product Mix: Through the case study, A. G. Barr Company has suffered fierce competition and finally becomes a historied company. It has sophisticated distribution channel which can help company save the cost and easier to gain economics of scale. b) the demand for barr’s product is probably price elastic.

Explain how this may influence the way in which barr’s markets it product. (5’) Definition of “the price elasticity of demand”: price elasticity is a kind of measurement which used to measure sensitivity of changes in quantity demanded in response to the changes of price. And for A. G. Barr, the main product, Irn-Bru, is a kind of product which its price elastic to demand, in other word means coefficient elastic > 1.
