Along with increasing human needs, the need for product variety is mostly met by products originating from local businesses. One of them is a snack product produced by Baranahan. Unfortunately, there are several things that hinder the development of Baranahan's products, such as “product image” and packaging materials that still look similar to those of its competitors.
