During the H1N1 pandemic occurred in the early 2000s, the government and health organizations have advocated in raising the awareness of maintaining cleanliness and hygiene to the public.

Foodborne illnesses which causes vomiting, stomach ache and etc. Is a common problem but usually taken for granted, especially in places where food safety is not properly practiced by the people.

From personal experience, I know that Sephora, MAC Cosmetics, Shoppers Drug Mart, The Body Shop, and drugstores like Wal-Mart, all provide testers to their consumers. This means that companies that provide these testers must be able to develop a protocol that will help control the spread of bacteria.

In addition, since Sephora is the leader in the cosmetics industry, they must ensure that they steer away from lawsuits because it could ruin the company and brand
In fact, 39% of people who took the Miswak Company’s survey said that they would not buy miswak because they did not want to brush their teeth with a “stick”. The company would have to ensure that the people who are buying their product are loyal to them. To ensure loyalty from customers, one of the main aspects that must be ensured is having a good quality product. Unfortunately, the miswak stick might not meet this criterion.

Procter & Gamble are responsible for producing a good percentage of the world’s best-known brands of household needs, health care, personal care, and baby care. Consisting of 25 brands, each an annual revenue of $1 billion, and an additional 15 brands that pull in $500 million annually, Procter & Gamble overall makes $84 billion each year through both brick-and-mortar stores and online stores in 180 nations. As Procter & Gamble’s products are virtually all convenience-related, distribution market coverage is widely used by the firm. Their products are carried amongst supermarkets, drug stores, and other similar franchises. Because of limited space on store shelves, not all products can be available at the same time. As a result, Procter & Gamble’s products compete for space not just with other rival firm brands but also the store brands themselves. Ways that Procter & Gamble rectified this issue is (as an example) making a distribution agreement(s) with companies
