This involves exact awareness of facilities, opportunities, capabilities and constraints in reaching a favorable situation. This study aims at identifying the strategies required for success and development in local and global markets of grapes through using SWOT (Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats) method. It firstly studies the theoretical principles of strategic planning process and strategic management, then it gathers internal factors (weaknesses and strengths) and external factors (opportunities and threats) pertaining to the grapes product development via questionnaires distributed among the statistical universe and analyzes them through SWOT method. To recognize the attractiveness of the identified strategies, QSPM (Quantitative Strategic Planning Matrix) matrix has been applied. The results reveal that continuous assessment of the competitors and their services contributes to the improvement of the products value added; and creating marketing networks and extensive campaigns are the most appropriate strategies in penetrating into the regional and global markets in order to develop grapes product of Takestan City. Furthermore, endeavors to achieve financial resources through ventures with foreign and domestic investors and applying modern technology and updated scientific findings have a considerable impact on developing grapes product.
