  4. 4. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 4 To search for the new areas on which the company can focus to create awareness. Statement of the problem Milk is the day to day need of any individual all over the world. In India the supply of Milk to the customers is done through the unorganized milkmen. After the revolution of the co-operative milk unions the milk India seen the packaged and processed Milk and Milk products. For many years the co-operative milk unions enjoyed monopoly in the market. But after the entry of private sector in this industry the competition has increased to maximum extent. Each of the players in the market has many ranges of milk products under different brands. And each and every player wishes that his brand of products must be on the top of the mind of customer. With the increasing competition, KMF is not able to raise the market share of its Nandini branded Milk and Milk products. And the company thinks the lacking of awareness of its products may be affecting its sale. In order to increase the consumer awareness the company started many promotional activities. Now the company wants to
  5. 5. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 5 know how much customers are aware about the product and what impact of promotional activities in creating awareness. Hence the main purpose of this study is to find the ―to study the consumer awareness about Nandini milk and milk products, and impact of promotional activities on creating awareness.‖ Need for the study: Dharwad Milk Union, a Subsidiary of Karnataka Milk Federation, is the oldest company in the North Karnataka region in the Packaged Milk and Milk Products segment. The company was the leader in this segment with its various products under the brand of NANDINI. But now with the increasing competitors from private sector in Packaged Milk and Milk Products industry the company has failed to increase its market. The company has made the attempt to increase the sales through many promotional activities like advertisements through various Medias, and Awareness Campaigns. Through these promotional activities the company wanted to re-capture the customers who are shifted from Nandini to other private branded products, and also wants capture those consumers who still depending on the un-organized suppliers like Dabba Milkmen etc… to serve their need of milk and milk products. So now the company wants to know the consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk products and impact of promotional activities on creating the awareness in the minds of customers. And also the company wants to know what sort of activities to be undertaken to attract the customers.

  8. 8. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 8 Findings of the study: There is 100% of the respondents are aware of Nandini brand Nandini Standard milk carries highest of 60% of awareness, the next is Shubham Milk which carries the 58% of awareness. Toned milk is also in the queue with 46% of awareness and the Double Toned Milk is showing very poor awareness with only 15% of respondents are aware of it Curd, Ghee, Pedha and Butter are having the greater awareness i.e.76%, 62%, 55% and 54% of awareness respectively. The Pot curd, Masala lassi and Sweet lassi carry little less awareness as compared to the first 4 products with a response of 43%,48% and 44%. Among all products Khoa and Paneer are the 2 products with very less response of 33% and 29%. Quality was given more importance with 74%, then the next importance is given for taste with 52% response. Availability thickness and price comes next with 31%, 26% and 26% where as the fat content carries very less importance with only 17% looking while purchasing milk and milk products The learning about the products is happened to the great extent by Television 55% and wall paintings 42%. The banners and dealers also contributed in learning
  9. 9. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 9 process by 36% and 30% respectively. 22% and 21% people came to know about the product s through magazines and radio ads, and only 9% of respondents learn about the products through campaigns 96 % of the respondents have observed the advertisements of Nandini Milk and Milk products. Among 96 respondents who have observed the advertisements, 77 respondents (80%) feel that the advertisements were informatory. Among 77 respondents who felt the advertisements were informatory 58% felt television, 34% says Banners, 30% felt ad boards, and 29% felt wall paintings were more informatory. Radio ads, magazines, and campaigns were felt less informatory to about 15%,16% and 10% respectively. Only 11 persons out of 100 have attended awareness campaigns Out of 11 customers who attended the campaigns, freshness of the product was learnt by 7 people, reliability of the Nandini brand was learnt by 5 people, hygiene in production by 4 and no adulteration in Milk and its products by 2 respondents. Out of 100 respondents 72% purchase Nandini Milk and Milk products. Out of 72 respondents who purchase Nandini Milk and Milk products 74% feels quality is great it is the main factor which influence them for repetitive purchase. Then 27% says taste, 23 % feels availability, 17% says thickness, 16% feels price which influence them in making purchase decision. Very less importance was given by the customers to fat content (15%) and promotional activities (6%) Out of 28 respondents who do not purchase Nandini Milk and Milk products price was said as the major factor with 64% response which influence their purchase decision. Second and third importance was given to availability and taste by 32% and 29%. Quality 07%, Fat content (11%), thickness (07%) and promotional activities (11%) are not major factors which prevents them for not being the customers
  10. 10. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 10 SUGGESTIONS: As there is very less awareness about Double toned milk the company should try to promote this product. The products like pot curd, Masala lassi, Sweet lassi has a great potential to grow in the market but the awareness is little less. So the company must take appropriate steps in order to increase the awareness. And much effort is needed to promote Khoa and Paneer. During the study I came to know that the availability of the milk products other than milk is very less. So the other milk products also made available to customer where ever the milk is available. That certainly increase the sales volume of milk products Consumers say they learnt about the product mainly through Television, wall paintings and banners. And feels television ads, banners, ad boards were more informatory. So the efforts of the company are going in a right direction. But only suggestion is to increase the frequency television ads and ad boards
  11. 11. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 11 The customers expect Quality, taste and availability while purchasing the milk and milk products and the company has reached the expectation in case of quality and taste but a small effort is needed to increase the availability. The non customers of Nandini says price is the major reason for not being. So the company should make an attempt to make them understand the value for money what they get from Nandini in terms of quality, and healthiness of the products. Awareness campaigns have failed to reach majority of customers. So the number of campaigns to be increased and to be made in such a place that the maximum number of customers are covered. Conclusion After analyzing the data of the study I conclude that the Toned milk is also in the queue with 46% of awareness and the Double Toned Milk is showing very poor awareness with only 15% of respondents are aware of it 29% felt wall paintings were more informatory. Radio ads, magazines, and campaigns were felt less informatory to about 15%, 16% and 10% respectively. Second and third importance was given to availability and taste by 32% and 29%. Quality 07%, Fat content (11%), thickness (07%) and promotional activities (11%) are not major factors which prevents them for not being the customers. INDUSTRY PROFILE
  12. 12. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 12 Brief History India has a rich tradition in dairying since the time of Lord Krishna. Dairying has been inherent in Indian culture, for centuries. Milk and milk products have always been an integral part of our consumption habits. In the vast field of animal husbandry, the contribution of dairying has been most significant, in terms of employment, as well as income generation. In post-independence India, co-operative dairying has been one of our major success stories, having a profound impact on socio-economic development of rural areas. Today, India is the largest milk producer in the world with record production of 91.5 million tons. India stands first in world milk production with a share of about 14 per cent in world milk production. Milk has achieved unique status in terms of its output value exceeding Rs. 1,00,000 crores and has made rapid strides both in terms of number of milk producers and quantity of milk produced. In India, dairying is the second important subsidiary occupation in rural areas, next to the main occupation of agriculture. Livestock sub-sector alone contributed to 25 per cent of the total value of agricultural GDP. The development of dairy industry in India is well known all over the world as one of the most successful development programme in the globe. Dairy farming is visualized by the farmers in India as part of an integrated agricultural system where dairy and agriculture complement each other. The milk production in India was 17 million tonnes in 1950-51. This could meet only 25 per cent of the domestic demand, the remaining 75 per cent of the demand was met by importing the milk solids. The production was stagnant for two decades till 1970, with annual growth rate of milk production of one per cent. Thanks to the vision and foresight of Dr. Kurien, in 1970, NDDB launched ―Operation Flood Program‖ with objective of ending milk famine in the country and turning farmers co-operatives into powerful catalyst for transforming India into major milk producer in the world. Further, by providing milk producers remunerative prices round the year, milk production in India touched 74 million tons since 1997. By the year 2000, India tops to emerge as the largest
  13. 13. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 13 milk producer – by surpassing the USA – with an estimated production of 86 million tons. This is as a result of India’s ―White Revolution‖ in milk production. The first phase of ―Operation Flood Program‖ was between 1970 and 1981 and it laid the foundation for modern dairy industry in India. There was a liable self-sustaining growth of producers controlled dairy co-operatives. The second phase was in action during 1981 to 1985, which established 136 milk sheds and captured markets in 290 cities and provided 4.9 billion finance. The operation flood has completed third phase on 31 march, 1994 by capturing 500 cities with population target of 300 million customers and at present fourth phase is in operation. When the third phase was over, the following benefits had reached the small dairy farmers. 1. Sustained increase in production (4-5% growth/annum) raising the per capita availability of milk to nearly 220 grams 2. Dependence on commercial imports of milk powder ended 3. Marketing mechanism improved and providing assured market outlet for milk producers and quality milk for consumers 4. The quality of milch animals improved. At the end of Operation Flood-II, 72,744 dairy co-operative societies in 170 milk sheds of the country having total membership of 93.14 lakhs has been organized. The Operation Flood Program launched another massive program called ―Technology Mission on Dairy Development (TMDD)‖ in June 1989. The objective of TMDD was same as that of Operation Flood Program’s objectives. Karnataka has always remained in the foresight of all agricultural development initiatives in India and dairy development is no exception. Dairy farming in Karnataka, like in elsewhere in the country, is largely characterized by the prevalence of dairy enterprises that are mostly subsidiary occupations alongside the main agricultural activity of the farmer. Specialized dairy enterprises do exist but not only is their number abysmally low as compared to regular types, but also are restricted mostly to urban areas and their surroundings.
  14. 14. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 14 Karnataka stands sixth in milk production in the country and it occupies third position with respect to milk production under co-operative sector in the country. The milk production was around 45 lakh tons during the year 2001-02. The KMF is covering 27 districts, with 7000 dairy co-operative societies; around 17000 villages involving 1.5 million farmers collects around 20 lakh liters of milk daily. As per World Bank Experts Report, for an initial investment of Rs. 200 crores in Operation Flood III, the net returns per year to the rural economy had been Rs. 24,000 crores. No other major development program all over the world, has matched this input- output ratio. The basic functions of any dairy enterprise are procurement, processing and marketing. This type of operation is known as “Anand pattern of dairying”. The management of dairy enterprise should be very careful in these activities. The procurement of milk include milk collection centers (dairy co-operative societies). The other important decision in milk procurement is pricing of milk. The two axis system of milk pricing is commonly used i.e., based on Fat and SNF content of milk. Seasonal fluctuation is the another important aspect which need adequate attention to ensure regular and sufficient milk throughout the year. Since, milk is perishable commodity, it has to be processed (chilling or pasteurizing) immediately after procurement, otherwise, it gets spoiled. The processing activity cannot be neglected as it make the milk in consumable form with more value addition. The marketing includes product mix, pricing policy, distribution routes and sales promotion etc. The milk products are marketed by both Karnataka Milk Federation and Private Milk Units.

In 1975, the World Bank aided dairy development was initiated. The present Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) came into existence in 1984-as a result of merging of Karnataka Dairy Development Co-operation, small co-operatives and Karnataka Milk Production Development and loose vendors.

  41. 41. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 41 NEWS PAPER INSERTIONS:
  42. 42. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 42 These types of advertisements are made by inserting the printed pamphlets in the leading local news papers. The target customers from a particular geographical area are selected and the printed insertions will be given to the news paper agents. The agents insert those pamphlets in the said news papers. From this the company can reach to the majority of customers who purchase that particular news paper in the whole area. This is a very economical means of advertisement. BANNERS: Banners are also play important role in creating awareness. They are the one which carry the message of the product or brand and catches the eye of consumers very easily. They are so compatible in nature that you can use them at any place. For ex, the banners can be used at dealers or outlets, can be tied in a crowded area, can be used in a promotional campaigns etc… DEALER DISPLAYS: The dealer displays are the display boards given by the company for displaying the product information. They are exclusively given to dealers only which contain lighting facility which make them clearly visible at the night also. These boards displays the products that are available and also to make separate identity for the dealers. TELEVISION AND RADIO: The company also making the publicity through the most popular media i.e.: electronics media. We can see and hear the advertisement of Nandini in radio channels and in various television channels also. At the same time KMF is doing some kitchen programs like NANDINI ADUGE MANE in private Kannada channels which are exclusively sponsored by KMF, which are also creating awareness about NANDINI products and increasing the brand image of NANDINI. AD BOARDS:
  43. 43. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 43 These are the tin boards and hard plastic boards which carry the information about individual products and of all products. There are two types of ad boards, namely Rectangle boards, cone boards. Usually these are used to advertise on public transport systems (back of city bus) and to display at the dealer outlets. These are more informatory compared to the hoardings.
  44. 44. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 44 AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS: Awareness campaigns are the campaigns organized by the KMF for promoting the Nandini Milk and Milk products. The awareness campaigns are organized by the marketing department of the company in which the company officials try to make the consumers aware about all the products available at Nandini counter. Also the officials try to convey the parameters which have to be looked while purchasing the milk and milk products. The consumers are given knowledge of the steps taken by KMF in order to provide them the healthier products which are processed with hygiene. The company officials also give knowledge to the consumers that how they are cheated by the private suppliers by doing adulteration and how that will affect their and their children’s health. In total the awareness campaigns never force the consumer to purchase the Nandini products but help them in decision making by comparing Nandini products with that of other private branded products. Usually this kind of awareness campaigns are organized in developing market and in the areas where the sales is less, and in the area where comparatively less educated people are there. Because the less educated consumers are week in decision making so these campaigns gives them a platform to think and decide.
  45. 45. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 45 There are two types of awareness campaigns practiced by the company. They are: DOOR TO DOOR CAMPAIGNS: The door to door awareness campaigns are done in the area where there are less existing customers are there and more potential customers are observed. Here the company officials personally visit every house and provide the information to the individual households. Generally it is carried over in such place where the customers need detailed knowledge about the products. These door to door campaigns are too much time consuming and also need to incur more expenses. But the results are more favorable. MASS CAMPAIGNS: Mass campaigns are carried over where there is a crowd. In such areas the officials take opportunity to make the crowd understand about the quality of the product, the factors to be looked after while purchasing the milk products. And also educate the crowd about the product mix of Nandini. These type of campaigns are organized in Mela’s, Fairs, and in sponsored programs like Mahila Mandal programs, functions in school and colleges etc... Compared to door to door campaigns the mass campaigns are less expensive and less time consuming. But the results of mass campaigns are not so favorable as of door to door campaigns.

  66. 66. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 66 ---SUGGESTIONS SUGGESTIONS: As there is very less awareness about Double toned milk the company should try to promote this product. The products like pot curd, Masala lassi, Sweet lassi has a great potential to grow in the market but the awareness is little less. So the company must take appropriate steps in order to increase the awareness. And much effort is needed to promote Khoa and Paneer. During the study I came to know that the availability of the milk products other than milk is very less. So the other milk products also made available to customer where ever the milk is available. That certainly increase the sales volume of milk products Consumers say they learnt about the product mainly through Television, wall paintings and banners. And feels television ads, banners, ad boards were more informatory. So the efforts of the company are going in a right direction. But only suggestion is to increase the frequency television ads and ad boards The customers expect Quality, taste and availability while purchasing the milk and milk products and the company has reached the expectation in case of quality and taste but a small effort is needed to increase the availability.
  67. 67. A study on Consumer awareness about Nandini Milk and Milk Products Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 67 The non customers of Nandini says price is the major reason for not being. So the company should make an attempt to make them understand the value for money what they get from Nandini in terms of quality, and healthiness of the products. Awareness campaigns have failed to reach majority of customers. So the number of campaigns to be increased and to be made in such a place that the maximum number of customers are covered.
