There are many activitiessuch as data collection, interpretation, framing aims and objectives, etc. which are required to beperformed by researcher to conduct this research. Hence this project will completed withinapprox 9 weeks.3
Quality-ALDI can expand business at international level with maintaining quality fproduct and services. At international level, there are many organisations which compete witheach other, to make long term existence in international market, it is relevant and crucial to givebest quality product and services(Coker, 2014).
