Report 1 Venetian Ices Ltd Introduction Venetian Ices Ltd is a Private Limited Company which began trading in London in 1948.

Aims and Objectives The aims of Venetian Ices Ltd could be to, increase/make a profit, to expand, to improve the awareness of their product, to fight competition, and possibly most importantly, to survive.

This would mean that they could not make a particular decision in complete freedom and without restriction. This can in some ways make the decision process easier by eliminating some possible decisions. Internal constraints A possible internal constraint to Venetian Ices Ltd could be that there is a lack of communication between departments.

Most of my information for this task has come from the BBC video documentary 'Ice Cream Wars', along with my existing Business Studies knowledge.
