There is a spring under the Harvey Grammar School, Your job is to market it, what do you do ? Product If you found a spring there would be a few things you would have to do first before you could even begin selling (marketing) it as a mineral or bottled water. (1.) You would have to claim ownership of the water from the springs, this could be a problem because if somebody already owns the spring they may have a right to the profits. (2.) You would have to check to see whether or not the water contained minerals, otherwise it's just bottled water, not mineral water.

I have done some market research into the subject. Most com Companies will change depending on who they are trying to focus on, the glass bottle will still be used in caf�s and restaurants but the plastic one will be sold in town centre's for people who do not have time to stop and eat lunch so there must be a more mobile option. I would not waste time producing a extremely complicated label as something as simple as these would do. Alasdair Muir, 4K, Business Studies Essay-Spring Water, Page 1 of 3 ...read more.
