Al-Hilal was established in 1960 and they launched their first production in 1962 that was Sultan Banaspati cooking oil and after about 40 years they have now shifted in production of juices. The main policy of Al-Hilal industries is PULL policy rather than PUSH policy that is they want to place their product on shelves first, they want maximum placement and then advertise their product. They have placement is Lahore, Karachi, Islamabad, Faisalabad and Multan. They want focus branding as their main focus is on group A people.

The reason for naming the juice Fresher is that since it is a fruit juice and fruits are always fresh. The punch line of Fresher is “Juice nai Fruit hai “. Fresher has currently three flavors Strawberry, Guava and Mango, Orange will soon be available. The main reason for introducing Fresher was that not many pulpy juices are available in Pakistan and Strawberry was never before available in juices.

The target market of Fresher is Youth and Adult. There focus is on branding and there priority is on quality, no preservative are used. The bottle of Fresher has crystal neck and the majority of the cost is spent on the bottles .The juice has a life of one year irrespective of the handling condition. GUAVA Origin: It is native to Mexico, as well as Central America, northern America and parts of the Caribbean but now cultivated throughout the tropics.
