Weight Loss Services in Australia Industry Market Research Report Now Updated by IBISWorld

Weight Loss Services in Australia Industry Market Research Report Now Updated by IBISWorld











IBISWorld Market Research


Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, more than 70.0% of Australian males and 56.2% of females are overweight or obese. For both health and cosmetic reasons, there is growing pressure on Australians to change this statistic. An ever-growing amount of consumer spending is being directed towards getting thinner and healthier. IBISWorld industry analyst Alen Allday states “during 2013-14, Australians are estimated to spend $ 643.7 million on weight-loss counselling services, low-calorie foods and dietary supplements in their quests to slim down.” This is up 3.6% from the previous year, and with annualised growth of 2.8% over the past five years. Stronger industry growth has returned in 2012-13 and 2013-14 following two years of low growth in 2010-11 and 2011-12, when uncertain consumers cut back on discretionary spending.

Growth for the Weight Loss Services industry continues to be driven by its traditionally prominent companies, such as Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig. However, competitors such as Lite n’ Easy and Tony Ferguson have also gained market share through the development of new dietary products and services. According to Allday, “Australians are seeking out innovative, convenient and more effective methods of weight loss than those that have been on the market for some time.” Opinions are mixed regarding the effectiveness of low-fat foods that have high-sugar content, and the role exercise plays in long-term weight loss without reducing sugar consumption. Another key trend has been the move by traditional weight-loss companies towards the development of low-calorie or fat-free food, drinks and supplements, and the incorporation of these products into their counselling services.

The two largest weight-loss companies, Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig, are well-known operators in the Weight Loss Services industry and offer a range of weight-loss products and services. As Australians continue to spend more on weight-loss solutions, there has been a steady supply of new products and services. There has been a steady increase in the number of smaller competitors entering the market to capture some market share from the large firms. There has been a large increase in the number of online companies offering quick-fix weight-loss pills and solutions, as well as online targeting of potential customers to these products. However, industry associations, medical experts and consumer groups have questioned the veracity and legitimacy of many of these products, with the largest companies tending to overcome many of these competitors. This has resulted in industry concentration increasing in the past five years. The major industry players are Nestle Australia (Jenny Craig), Weight Watchers and Lite n’ Easy. For more information, visit IBISWorld’s Weight Loss Services report in Australia industry page.

What are examples of the elements of Quality Control System and the activities of analytical testing?

Question by as57: What are examples of the elements of Quality Control System and the activities of analytical testing?
Our company will be audited by European Medicines Agency this coming May. They asked, “What are the elements of our quality control system? What are the activities of analytical testing, packaging and component testing?” I have a hard time to understand the content of the questions. I was wondering they expect answers, such as calibration verification, and verification of method performance specifications for the first question, and evaluation of analytical methods for the second. If someone can give me some example, that would be a big help. Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by sixsigmaboss
Yes, you need help fast and this space does not contain enough room to answer everything that you need to get ready for – however, maybe I can get you started –

I am an IRCA QMS 2000 Lead Auditor and very much understand what is being ask!

First – reference materials that you should be aware of:

European Quality Award – http://www.efqm.org/
Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award – http://www.quality.nist.gov/
ISO – Quality Management System (QMS) 9000 series – http://www.iso.org/iso/home.htm
American Society for Quality (ASQ) – http://www.asq.org

The EFQM and Baldrige are quality awards – these look at the best of the best organizations.

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards (which is similar to what you are going through) is set up on a base level that any company or organization should be able to meet.

Your goal should be to get somewhere between what the standards are asking for and the top-level quality awards. The probability is that your organization is already doing a lot of thing very good – also called customer satisfaction.

Now for the quality control system (also called a quality management system). The ISO 9000 series breaks this up into five categories: Quality Manual; Quality Management; Resource Management; Product Realization and the Measurement System. The auditors want to first see what type of a documented system you have to control the overall processes for the business that you are in.

So if you are making some kind of a widget, how has your organization planned to produce what is wanted by the customer, the steps that are gone through to actually make the widget including any product testing of supplier parts or actual components and how the widgets are packaged, shipped and delivered to the customer so that no damage is done to the widget. Once all that is done, how do you know that the customer likes what you sold to them?

Ideally, what you need is some form of documentation (keep is as simple as possible) using the outline of the ISO 9001:2008 below

4 Quality management system
4.1 General requirements
4.2 Documentation requirements
4.2.1 General

6 Resource management

6.2 Human resources
6.2.1 General
6.2.2 Competence, awareness and training
6.3 Infrastructure

7.5.2 Validation of processes for production and service provision
7.5.3 Identification and traceability
7.5.4 Customer property
7.5.5 Preservation of product
7.6 Control of monitoring and measuring devices

8 Measurement, analysis and improvement
8.1 General
8.2 Monitoring and measurement
8.2.1 Customer satisfaction
8.2.2 Internal audit
8.2.3 Monitoring and measurement of processes
8.2.4 Monitoring and measurement of product
8.3 Control of nonconforming product
8.4 Analysis of data
8.5 Improvement
8.5.1 Continual improvement
8.5.2 Corrective action
8.5.3 Preventive action

Again, this is your starting point. The next thing will be to show the auditors how you are continually improving the companies system to do better!
