To the yuppies, quality of ice cream and product feedback is vital. If it hits home, they might actually stick to it. All they need is a good push to try the product.
More expensive than other brands. Maintained a clean reputation for making quality ice cream, proven by several awards given to Arce Dairy. Arce Dairy ice cream is scientifically proven much healthier compared to leading ice cream brands. Has variety of unique ice cream flavours not available in other brands.
Has very limited advertising/promotion materials, leading to unpopularity amongst the masses. Product is poorly distributed, making it available to very limited stores and locations. Not top of the mind when asked about an ice cream product. Has a “local” image, therefore viewed as “cheap”.
Arcefoods Corporation has been honored the Hall of Fame Award as “Outstanding Ice Cream Manufacturer” by the Consumers Union of the Philippines while ArceDairy Ice Cream has been awarded the 1999 Dangal Ng Bayan “Outstanding Ice Cream Product” and the New Millennium Excellence Award “Most Outstanding Ice Cream Brand” by the Parangal ng Bayan Awards Foundation.
