A Study on the Points of Improvement through the Survey Analysis of Strawberry Package Elements (Shape, Material, Design) and IPA MAP Analysis Lee, Seung-Yong;
For changes in the distribution structure these days, consumer demand is moving rapidly from offline to online. The consumers' mentality to purchase products conveniently is reflected in this phenomenon. Also for agricultural products, safety to protect contents, brand and design which can provide credibility to consumers are recognized as most important than ever. Especially, strawberry is thin-skinned so that the quality of product may deteriorate even with weak impact and shaking, so it is significantly influenced by the structural packaging or material. Also, strawberry is frequently distributed through direct trading, it is the reality that the package design of strawberry is less competitive than that of other products due to inadequate environments of commercial farms. That is, the demand of strawberry increases everyday but the strawberry package cannot fulfill the needs of producers and consumers. In order to reinforce competitiveness in strawberry sales, it is urgent to carry out fundamental studies regarding the development of package. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to supplement and improve issues arising from the usage of current strawberry package. Through the analysis of strawberry package elements (shape, material, design) and understand the points of improvement sought by producers and consumers through IPA MAP (importance, satisfaction level) analysis.
