Outline a plan that managers in the low-calorie, frozen microwaveable food company could
follow in anticipation of raising prices when selecting pricing strategies for making their
products response to a change in price less elastic. Provide a rationale for your response.
The key factor for a successful price management plan is to understand the extent to
which the price can stretch. Increasing the price leads to a fall in the demand curve. However,
some elements distort this factor, which includes: product quality, customer loyalty, great brand
values and week competition. To actually raise the prices and balance the product response to
change in price elasticity, the following strategy has to be employed according to (Noble, &
Gruca, 1999).
Innovation:
Innovation is a technique of adding value and sustaining the segregated benefit of the
