YESTERDAY Mason and hermetic jars have not changed with time, but have been reinterpreted by many. Yesterdayâ€™s canning and preserving was seen as a necessity for food storage and was always taken for granted. Grandmothers and mothers would spend days canning food and using it all year round.
TODAY Today, Mason and hermetic jars have taken a complete new connotation and have evolved to other uses. These kitchen objects that have always been taken for granted, today are moving from hidden cabinets to luxurious table. They have become a status for healthy and chic living and, for many people, have become an important part of everyday life. 4
CURRENT USER Today our customers are those who are enhancing their cooking passion and are seeking convenience. They are urban dwellers who seek and value healthy and organic eating habits. Our established customers like to take the meaning of cooking to a more sophisticated level using our jars. Our new customers instead are looking for convenience but still believe in healthy habits.

COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS Le Parfait deals directly with other glass jar manufacturers as their main competitors. Le Parfait has always maintained a firm position in the high-end section, with expensive but life lasting jars. This positioning puts us in a delicate but advantageous area. Having a high-end product could be a risk, especially in todayâ€™s market where competition is based on reduction of cost and a lower quality product to meet larger scale targets.
COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE FORM STORAGE FORM STORAGE STORAGE PROCESS
It is important to understand how Le Parfait can create competitive advantage in relationship to its competitors. By looking at the solutions that our competitors have adopted we can notice a reoccurring trend. The trends that have been adopted can by categorized in: -Form -Storage -Process -Use This leaves open some areas of interest such as utilizing our existing jar to create a Signature Experience and enhance this experience through the addition of new products that live in direct relation to our jar.
THE OPPORTUNITY From analyzing our customer’s habits we understand that there is an opportunity that can be fulfilled by our company to enhance our customer’s experience. After analyzing the categories of processes that live between the purchase and the consumption of food, we can see that our brand today occupies the category of preserving food. We realize that it is important to consider all of the processes that live in between the two extremes and try to bridge them to create a unique experience for our customer.
THE SOLUTION PURCHASING
We have so decided to understand the different processes that live in between purchasing and consuming food, and to expand our presence in more areas of this experience. Through engaging also in the preparation and the consumption of food we will help bridge the two extremes, setting our jar at the very center of a signature experience. Encompassing these other areas will help us get closer to our customer, transforming our name from being just a brand to becoming a passion and a necessity, taking a leap into becoming a lovebrand. 10
A SIGNATURE EXPERIENCE In order to satisfy our customerâ€™s needs, we have decided to launch three product lines, directly linked to one another, that live in direct relation to our jars. These product line will help us bridge the gaps between the different processes of cooking and will satisfy our customer by offering a Le Parfait signature Experience. The three lines that we are proposing are: -Le Parfait Preparer -Le Parfait Personnel -Le Parfait Promenade

Once the fruits and vegetables you have strained, you can pour them into your favorite jar just by folding over the cutting board.
After placing the rubber grater body over the favorite jar, you can select the desired cutting head and slide it into the slot.
