Rivalry among competing firms: National Foods is having many well known competitors amongst whom Shan Industries and Mitchells are worth mentioning. To sustain the competitive advantage over the competitors, National Foods has not only increased its products but has also added many features to them via innovation and technology.

Potential entry of new competitors: In this era of technological advancement, numerous new firms are entering the industry producing products equipped with great features and characteristics, which may also make the already existing firms increase their efforts to maintain their market reputation. National Foods is also facing competition from Mitchells in many product lines such as sauces.

Potential Development of substitute products: This is another threat many industries face. Fortunately for NFL, there are not many substitutes for their products. There is no threatening substitute for pickles, spices or sauces. Just more competitors making the same products can pose as threats.

Conclusion

By carrying out various strategic management processes, it can be concluded that National Foods Limited is in a strong position to use its strengths while minimizing its weaknesses. This is indicated by a good score in the IFE (3.21 points). Similarly, a score of 2.95 is a reasonable score in the EFE, although it can benefit from some attention as currently it seems that NFL may not be completely making use of the external forces at work. Competitively, NFL is established and enjoys a big market share and does well to stay ahead of the competition. However, some areas must be focused upon to eliminate potential competitive threats. Advertisement is one area where attention must be given and another is global expansion, both are the ones Mitchells capitalizes on.

Seeing how NFL is playing its game it can be said that they are on the right path toward prosperity and success and may well within a few years out smart its competition. We will let time be the judge of that for now.
