CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1     Background to the Study

Packaging has a great influence or impact in the lives of human and product alike. Most physical products have to be packaged and labeled. Some packages such as the coke bottle and eggs container are world famous. Many marketers have called packaging a fifth “P” along with Product, Price, Place and Promotion (Kotler, 2000). Most manufacturing industries today employ high technological equipment and techniques in the design and production of product’s, is not deemed complete until a befitting package is designed and produced for it. The package here is looked upon as the last marketing mix variable along the channel of production of consumer goods production.

Packaging has become a potential marketing tool well designed and can create convenience and promotional values. It is imperative that any type of packaging should protect the product from damage, pilferage and deterioration through sales channel to its ultimate consumer and in the process of its usage. It is paramount that most consumer products can be package in some kind of container, if they are to be marketed intensively with its inherent handling procedure and technique along with sales channel. The research study will be justified by seeking to find whether consumer have been recommended for improvement.

Further more, a product is basically made up of two distinct parts, “The Product content and the Package” itself. But, at this juncture, more time needs to be focused to the sales of a company’s product. It is important to adequately package a product to protect it against all external forces that may be acting on the product while in transit. Product packaging not only protects the product during transit from the manufacturer to the retailer, but it also prevents damage while the products sit on retail shelves.
