This is the reason the Light forces advise against any speculation about the timing of the Event to avoid disappointment and suggest you rather start focusing on your mission and living your life to its fullest in the Now: A go ahead or a no go?

Situation Analysis Over the years, TruEarth has afforded themselves many strengths through their success in their pasta line that could be carried over into the pizza venture.
The company can already confirm that Rigazzi has also tested a pizza concept so there is more pressure for them to move quickly if they were to expand their products to include pizza.
They tested the concept on focus groups, estimated, for instance, potential sales volume and so on. In an attempt to retain our leadership position and extend our product line, we have invested in the development of a new whole grain pizza.
Rigazzi Brands is their only competitor that is of similar scale and offers all of the same products as TruEarth currently produces. Further, consumers had tired of unhealthy carryout and fast food and started seeking greater variety and freshness.
The process has proven to be beneficial and could be transferred over to their whole grain pizza development. So, the conclusion I can take from this analysis is that the strengths and opportunities are much more significant than the threats and weaknesses, and for this reason I would definitely advise TruEarth management to launch this new product, provided that they do it immediately so that they can benefit from first mover advantage and avoid falling behind Rigazzi.
To understand whether TruEarth management should go ahead and launch the new product it is important to comprehend the strategic Marketing Management Maria Ana Henriques positioning of the company. Bythe company was seeing profits of 23 million dollars with their pasta and sauce line.
In terms of technology, pizza would have an advantage since the large investment in machinery and distribution was already made. It is a quick and easy meal but at the same time allows the cooker to add its own touch. One way of doing that is by performing a SWOT analysis. A core difference that one should notice is that the market for pizza is bigger than the one for pasta, which has good and bad consequences.
This product has proven to be successful at one time. We are only off of our return requirements by a small margin 1.Case Study#2 Pg Healthy Foods Inc.
