3. Firstly, comparing the purchase intent for whole grain pizza and fresh pasta (Exhibit 7 and Exhibit 3 respectively) we would have to consider the measures that have been used in both studies.

It is clear that the whole grain pizza was priced higher than the delivered pizza and the surveyed have considered it to be less valuable than this type of product. There is a need to make some adjustments in the pricing of the product or considering increasing the quality of the ingredients with the objective to be better positioned than the average delivery
