Dairyprocessing is acting good role in India.
  9. 9. Dairy Processing: India ranks first in the world in terms of milk production. Indian production stands at 91million tones growing at a CAGR of 4 per cent. This is primarily due to the initiativestaken by the Operation flood programmes in organizing milk producers into cooperatives;building infrastructure for milk procurement, processing and marketing and providingfinancial, technical and management inputs by the Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Food Processing Industries to turn the dairy sector into viable self- sustaining organizedsector. About 35% of milk produced in India is processed. The organized sector (largescale dairy plants) processes about 13 million tones annually, while the unorganized sectorprocesses about 22 million tones per annum. In the organized sector, there are 676 dairyplants in the Cooperative, Private and Government sectors registered with the Governmentof India and the state Governments. India has a unique pattern of production, processing and marketing/consumption of milk,which is not comparable with any large milk producing country. Approximately 70 millionrural households (primarily, small and marginal
  10. 10. farmers and landless labourers ) in thecountry are engaged in milk production. Over 11 million farmer are organized into about0.1 million village Dairy Cooperative Societies (DCS)(about 110 farmers per DCS). Thecumulative milk handled by DCS across the country is about 18 million kg of milk per day.These cooperatives form part of a national milk grid which links the milk producersthrough out India with consumers in more than 700 towns and cities bridging the gaps onaccount of seasonal and regional variations in the availability of milk.The Ministry of food Processing Industries is promoting organized Dairy processing sectorto accomplish upcoming demands of processed dairy products and helping to identifyvarious areas of research for future product development and quality improvement torevamp the Indian dairy export by way of providing financial assistance to the dairyprocessing units. 32 Units have been sanctioned financial assistance (Rs.591 lakhs) underthe plan scheme of the Ministry during the year 2006-07.

  26. 26. Research methodology is the way to systematically solve the problem. In it we study the various steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his research problem along with the logic behind them. Thus, When we talk about research methodology we not only talk of the research methods but also consider the logic behind the methods we used in the context of our research study and explain why we are using a particular method or technique and why we are not using others so that research results are capable of being evaluated either by the researcher himself or by others. RESEARCH OBJECTIVE: To know the actual sales of the product. To understand the requirement of the product. To determine the expansion strategies. RESEARCH DESIGN A sample size of 40 retailers was taken. The survey was conducted in the area THANE.
  27. 27. Sampling techniques: A quota sampling technique was adopted because the sample audience was made out of potential purchasers of the product. The sample was carefully drafted. A lot of care was taken when designing the questionnaire and also when collecting information PRIMARY DATA The primary data consists of information obtained from the retailers and distributor. SECONDARY DATA The secondary data is obtained from the information already published in newspaper articles , blogs and books. The websites like Amul. Com ,scribd. Com , Wikipedia . cometc were also useful
  28. 28. METHODS OF DATA COLLECTION The source of the data collected for the research is both primary data and secondary data Primary Data : By Observation Method : This data was collected by visiting the amul outlets in Thane by seeing the displayed Amul products in that stores. The data was collected on the following parameters: Price . Visibility. Shelf Life . Discounts Offered . By Personal Interviews : The data was collected by visiting each and every stores where amul products are available and also check the availability of the Amul products in the shelf . The information was taken by talking to the purchase mangers of the stores as well as the distributors . The objective of this was to know the preference of the retailers to stores the Amulproducts , know the problems regarding the delivery , the problems between distributors and retailers . The questions were open – ended as well as close - ended .
  29. 29. LIMITATIONS The research was carried out for 2 months which proved to the insufficient to tap the accuracy of the study Time factor has been a very big limitation in the research survey like this.
  30. 30. QUESTIONAIRE NAME OF THE RETAILER CONTACT NO ADDRESS FEEDBACK This were the questionnaires which we are supposed to get completed from the retailers. Comparing amulpro with bournvita: AMUL PRO:
  31. 31.  It contains DHA advantage.  With power of vitamin D and calcium  Whey protein which helps for bodybuilding.  Goodness of milk. BOURNVITA:
  32. 32.  Dha only for age group of 5yrs  Similarly whey protein also for the age group of 5yrs.  Prices of the jar as well as the pack is very high as compared with the “Amul pro”. Whereas “Amul pro” is for every age group right from the children up to grandfather. FINDINGS 1. Customer trust on brand of product and name of company while purchasing the product. 2. The company has been able to deliver a good quality and taste products are reasonable and affordable prices.
  33. 33. 3. Most of the complaints that we heard from the retailers is that they are not satisfied with the company’s margin as the margin is very low compared with the competitors product. 4. The Company enjoys a market leadership in products like Butter , Cheese but also lacks products awareness in product like Basundi , GulabJamun , Chocolates etc . 5. The improper distribution network creates a great hindrance in reaching the product to the market and customers . 6. At most of the outlets, employees are not satisfied even dealers also.According to them, Amul only takes action for customer satisfaction,but for the outlets employee’s satisfaction, Amul tries to avoid it 7. Retailers do not agree to stock Amul ice creams as the company doesn’t not provide the retailer with deep freezers. 8. The local competitors like Warna ,Chitaleetc are eating the market share of Amul in product categories of Shrikhand, Milk , Dahi. 9. The retailers are not happy with the damage product treatment given by then company. The retailers wish for the replacement of the damaged products which the company refuses to give. 10.The company faces a huge competition from other companies in the market for Dahi,icecreams,mithaimate and freshcream.
  34. 34. CONCLUSION I have studied and analyzed the dairy based food product market of amul on different aspects of the markets,outlets,distribution and consumers. The 2 months of summer internship with amul actually helped me to learn various thing that would really be helpful in my life for future growth. This project shows me the way to work in the market .How to communicate with different type of people .How to convince one for better job .Learnt how to sell ,how things work in Fast moving Consumer goods .having perishable nature of these product one need a excellent distribution network and carefully select market because these product if transferred to far area then cost attached to the product will make it un competitive . According to me the growth of any product whether it could be food based product or anything depends upon how we do proper branding of that product and also the promotion which plays a very vital role in attracting customers. The main goal should be to attract customer and to retain them so that the loyalty maintains in future as well. Besides thisQuality is the dominating aspect which influences consumer to purchase Amul product, but prompt availabilityof other brands and aggressive promotional activities by others influences the consumer towards them and also leads to increase sales Ultimately I must say that I am privileged to work in the company like Amul and get such a real time exposure of FMCG company .
