Description for case is given below :
The inventory manager of sales and distribution for Toffee Inc., a confectionery company, had just concluded a meeting with all relevant personnel. The meeting had not been entirely positive. The words of the production manager still echoed in his ears: “If the ingredient inventory is not re-examined and re-worked to the firm’s advantage then [soon] the final products based on these ingredients will cease to yield the kind of profits that the firm expects.” The inventory manager needed to prepare a comprehensive forecasting and inventory management plan with a view to minimize the cost of managing the supply chain by judicious use of resources, better forecasting, and improvement in the ingredient inventory purchasing and management systems.

Description for case is given below :
In late 2013, the founder of Aztek Chocolate, a candy manufacturer, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, is confronted with making an accounting system selection decision. He has two traditional options – outsourcing to an accounting or bookkeeping firm versus using an internally developed spreadsheet or commercial software package – as well as a third “hybrid” option – using an accounting cloud, or Software-as-a-Service, service provider. Sales are starting to flow in, and chocolates are shipping out, but he realizes he must now attend to setting up financial control and reporting systems before he loses control of the new firm’s financial performance. Should he hire an accountant, manage the finances himself with a commercial accounting software package or use an accounting cloud service provider?

Description for case is given below :
Andrea Torres, director of new product development at a high-end chocolate confectionery company, leads her team through a carefully sequenced program of market research to support the development and launch of a new product, healthy dark chocolate with fruit. This is the first time Montreaux USA, an offshoot of a Swiss confectioner, has created a product specifically for U.S. chocolate consumers. The case explains the steps Torres and her NPD team have completed and describes the decisions that lie ahead, a few months in advance of the anticipated launch. A challenging situation is intensified by a competitor also having tested a dark-chocolate-with-fruit product that was likely to be introduced into the U.S. marketplace in the near future. Students must perform a quantitative analysis as part of their work.

Description for case is given below :
Theo Chocolate, Inc. is a small start-up chocolate manufacturer struggling to establish brand recognition in the highly competitive branded gourmet chocolate segment. Theo’s unique value proposition, of being “the only organic, Fair-Trade, bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the United States,” drives its business. The company was started and operates under the premise that socially responsible business practices are cornerstones of its operations. Since its inception, Theo has built a loyal and growing following, especially in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Its first three years were spent building this customer base and forging a brand based on its value proposition and everyday business practices. However, despite steady improvements in all financial indicators, to date Theo had not been profitable – the company expected to break “into the black” in its fourth year. The case explores the challenges Joe Whinney and Debra Music (the Founder/CEO and VP of Sales and Marketing, respectively) face as they emerge from the first stage of the entrepreneurial venture. The key decision facing the company, and Debra in particular, is whether Theo can in fact afford to stay true to the strategy and value proposition that has defined its existence. It is trying to establish a unique brand in a marketplace that is dominated by large well-established competitors with significant resources at their disposal. It has not been profitable in doing so. The case provides students an opportunity to wrestle with very real issues that idealistic entrepreneurs face – compromising principles, brand-building, managing cash flow and planning for the future.
