The marketing strategy involved packaging of the product in a 300-gram bag, produced under GMP and Department of Livestock Development standards, with a retail price of 199 baht per packet and a wholesale price of 160-165 baht per packet (depending on order quantity). Distribution would occur through both online and offline channels, including retailers. Marketing efforts would be enhanced through activities, discounts, exchanges, and giveaways, especially during online Double Days, and by offering up to 30 days of trade discounts and trade credits to retailers. The technical feasibility study results showed that the factory location was moderately suitable, with adequate transportation facilities, community resources, raw material sources, and various public utilities. The production process involved 13 steps with efficiency controls and adherence to GMP standards. In terms of management feasibility, the study showed that the project had a total of 9 personnel distributed across four departments: production, quality insurance, accounting, and sales and marketing. The emphasis was on hiring quality personnel who would take responsibility and adhere strictly to the organization's regulations. The financial feasibility study results showed that the total starting capital was 8,000,000 baht, entirely from owner's equity. The project was set for ten years, with a payback period of two years, four months, three days, a NPV of 17,558,836 baht, an IRR of 49.96 percent, and profitability index of 2.19 times.
