The following Sprite advertisement is about one of their newer products on the market called Sprite Ice Blue. This particular ad targets a younger to middle generation. This would be the laid-back, fun-type culture. The social class would vary on this, but ultimately I believe that it targets the lower to middle class.
The advertiser is trying to fulfill the consumers need for an ice cold thirst quenching drink. Along with Sprite’s refreshing crisp lemony taste came a hint of mint.
Ultimately I believe that the ad was ok. It definitely would catch the attention of someone seeing the advertisement. I believe that its effectiveness is good because it shows a woman who looks frozen and excited at the same time, making the consumer believe that drinking this product would be cool and cold, yet exciting to the taste buds.
The humor in the advertisement is good. I laughed as soon as I saw it. Here you have a woman, frozen and sticking her blue tongue out. Amusing , to say the least. I think they used more of a shock appeal along with amusement. The shock is the way the woman looks and the amusing part is that she’s frozen and sticking her tongue out.
I think this technique would work great or all of those new gums that they have out. All of these ice gums that freeze your tongue off when you take a drink of water while having the gum in your mouth. That alone makes you look like the woman in the picture for the Sprite advertisement. I definitely think it would be effective, because who wouldn’t want to have a cool, refreshing…...

...professional recommendations would be provided to improve the difficult situation that the management is facing. Procedures As mentioned by Lockwood, Alcott and Pentelidis (2008) “The food and beverage operations largely follow a basic input, process, output model.” This model consists of the following steps in the operation that begins with the purchasing, receiving, storing and production which will be explained in further details below. Purchasing of food and beverage The purchasing function is the beginning of the whole operations cycle and it is responsible for selecting and procuring the needed products at the most economical prices. As mentioned by Leslie (1987) “Purchasing function oversees the purchasing, procurement, recording the receiving, correct storage of goods and ensuring continuity of supply of items to consumers and also finding cheaper and more efficient sources of supply. This is further supported by Alonso and Ogle (2008) “ The manager must ensure that this department works in a systematic order as it is the main core of the process. Their primarily responsibilities are to maintain adequate supply and quality, obtain the lowest possible price and maintain the company’s competitive position.” According to Lockwood, Alcott and Pentelidis (2008) “When purchasing of food, it is necessary to consider what the true cost of the item will be in relation to what the printed price list from the supplier states it to be.” Leslie (1987) further added......

Advertisement Comparison - Alcoholic Beverages

...Let’s Get Together and Have a Good Time Alcohol products are among the most prevalent types of goods that are marketed and advertised in mainstream magazines. There are a broad range of alcoholic products on the market today and each company strives to distinguish their product from their competitor. Perusing through many of the popular publications such as GQ or Esquire, one will find more advertisements for alcohol than any other type of product. With such high demand and supply for such products, advertisers must be more diligent than ever to distinguish themselves from their competitors. “Alcohol advertisements focus on 3 effects of usage, sexual success, social success, and negative effects (anti-drinking ads)” (Burkey 5) which are no different in the case of Hennessy yet somewhat different in the case of Bombay Sapphire. Hennessy, a maker of cognac, creates an advertisement that is superior to Bombay Sapphire, a maker of dry gin, with respect to the use of color, emotional appeal and the overall tone which cause the viewer to spend money by pursuing an experience with their product. The Hennessy ad creates a storyboard effect by using four separate images. Three photographic images of a social scene and the Hennessy product surround a graphic image of the golden Hennessy logo. Each image varies in size and dimension. Two of the photographs show a cast of four people having a good time and one of the photographs shows of a bottle of Hennessy. The first...

... Food and Beverage Operations Management (Unit5 Student Name: Emilia Panzo Submitted to:  Margaret Amankwah Nelson College London Wembley Campus, London Task1 1.1characteristics of food production and beverage service systems Food Production Methods Food production methods in the catering industry evolved over a period of time when there was an great quantity of labour. The design of the established kitchen, first introduced into the UK in the latter half of the nineteenth century, grew up around the division of tasks into parties (comparable tasks with numerous foods were carried out by a particular group of people). This was the progress of the parties system. The rigid demarcation between the sections meant that the staffing ratio was high in comparison with the number of meals served. During the first half of the twentieth century there was little or no technical change in the kitchens of hotels and restaurants. Most managers and chefs had been trained in the old traditional methods which gave reasonably satisfactory results, and to them there seemed little reason to change. It is only during the last forty years that changes in the old traditional methods have evolved. These changes were slow to appear and started in the manufacturing industry rather than in the kitchens of hotels and restaurants. Technical research was done by the major firms of food suppliers and their products......
