KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION EXECUTIVE SUMMARYINTRODUCTION Karnataka milk federation was setup in 1974 on the AMUL pattern it isthe third largest co-operative federation in India and first in south India. Thereare 17 unions in Karnataka. The project is conducted to know the “distribution effectiveness inHubli-Dharwad for K.M.F” in Dharwad. As present market is highlycompetitive, if one not reaches to ultimate customer other reaches and grabsthe opportunity. So an effort made by the company like manufacturing,promotion etc. are gets wasted. So it becomes important to reach ultimatecustomer at right time and right place, by knowing the requirement of themarket. In 1960’s & 70’s the product dominated the market, but presently thescenario has changed because of the competition (man players in market).Secondly the customer has many choices to choose a single product,immediately he/she shifts to the other product. After the liberalization many organizations entered the new markets orexpanding business into new areas and they have set up the plants in differentregions in the country. Hence it has become vital important to local player tocompete with them in quality, pricing, distribution etc. under such conditionplays very important to grab even small of the small opportunities.It becomes important to update to the market requirement to compete incompetitive world. So to know the market requirement we should have properinformation from the market. So I selected this project, which can serve thespecified information, which could help to the organization to improve thedistribution channel effectively in the market. So to serve better from theexisting one

KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION CONCLUSION Clearly Nandini milk is a long way to go before it becomes a majorplayer in south India in the perishable goods like Nandini milk and otherproducts. Its Brand image is the cutting edge to its marketing strategy. K.M.Fhas its brand image from 30 years. The only thing K.M.F needs to developstrong promotional activities which concentrating more in satisfaction of theagents and retailers and also concentrate on rural market and housewives,which help to improving sales. While conducting a survey I came to know about many agents andretailers are proffered Nandini Brand milk only.If the organization will give more commission and other promotional activitieslike advertisement material boards and paint to shop and continues meet toagents and retailers definitely it will become more market share in theKarnataka.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION FINDINGS IN RESEARCH The market potential has immense significance in the field ofmarketing, market can not ignore the market opportunities or the market to beused that are prevailing and going to occur in the market, this is becausetoday’s market is basically competition oriented to out perform other andcapture large market shareAs per the survey it clears the all the agents and retailers are getting thecomplaints of Nandini milk productsAs per the survey I came to know that: As considering Nandini milk Nandini stands for first in selling the milk. Toned milk is high selling milk in K.M.F- Dharwad. By conducting the survey I came to know about that Nandini toned milk and standard are high selling goods. Field staff are not visiting to the agents and retailers to get their feedbacks. Perishability of Nandini milk is very highy compared to other brand of milk. Most of the agents are part timers No credit or extension of time for cash payment.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION RECOMMENDATIONS For any organization to survive in this competitive market thecompany should adopt a distribution channel which will help not only theorganization but also its agents and retailers. There fore the following points should be consider and adopt by theorganization in order to create his good will, brand image and profit. The company increases margin for agents and retailers. They will motivate to sell high volume of Nandini milk and its products. This can be done by having some other offers, gifts etc. The marketing filed officers will meet regularly and motivate to sell the products. The main mediator of the organization is the agent and retailers they know the customer behavior and preference while purchasing the milk so they can easily find out the problem of the product. So continues contact with the agents will give good feedback from the agent 68% of the agents are facing the exchange of damaged milk so improve the packaging of the product. The problem of milk spoilage in the evening that has to be solved. Milk availability throughout the day is totally not found this has to be brought in practice.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION LIMITATIONS OF THE PROJECTThough the project was very structured one, it had following limitations 1. The area into consideration was limited for the study of the project, as the consider area and the facts collected, cannot be compared at large to entire Karnataka. 2. Ahe project required analysis of different areas. With the limitation of time was very difficult to carry out the entire thing in full depth. 3. Analysis of the study is based on the assumption that information collected from the survey which is 100 sample 4. The period of the project is limited for 2 months
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONHISTORY OF MILK
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION History of MilkAnimal milk was first used as beverage at the beginning of animaldomestication. Goats and sheep were domesticated in the Middle East in 9000BC. Goats and sheep were one of the first animals to be domesticated. Aroundthe year 7000 BC, cattle were being herded in parts of Africa and Turkey.Milk was also consumed in the British Isles during the Neolithic period. Dairyproducts were first made in the Roman Empire around 100 BC. The use ofcheese and butter spread in Europe, parts of Asia and parts of Africa. Cattlewere then introduced to European colonies after the Age of exploration.BackgroundMilk is a nutritive beverage obtained from various animals and consumed byhumans. Most milk is obtained from dairy cows, although milk from goats,water buffalo, and reindeer is also used in various parts Of the world. In theUnited States, and in many industrialized countries, raw cows milk isprocessed before it is consumed. During processing the fat content Of the milkis adjusted, various vitamins are added, and potentially harmful bacteria arekilled. In addition to being consumed as a beverage, milk is also used to makebutter, cream, yogurt, cheese, and a variety Of other products.HistoryCattle were first brought to the United States in the 1600s by some Of theearliest colonists. Prior to the American Revolution most of the dairy productswere consumed on the farm where they were produced. By about 1790,population centers such as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia had grownsufficiently to become an attractive market for larger-scale dairy operations.To meet the increased demand, farmers began importing breeds of cattle thatwere better suited for milk production. The first Holstein-Friedens wereimported in 1795, the first Airsides in 1822, and the first Guernsey’s in 1830.With the development of the dairy industry in the United States, a variety ofmachines for processing milk were also developed. In 1856, Gail Borden
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONpatented a method for making condensed milk by heating it in a partialvacuum. Not only did his method remove much of the water so the milk couldbe stored in a smaller volume, but it also protected the milk from germs in theair. Borden opened a condensed milk plant and cannery in Wassail, NewYork, in 1861. During the Civil War, his condensed milk was used by Uniontroops and its popularity spread.In 1863, Louis Pasteur of France developed a method of heating wine to killthe microorganisms that cause wine to turn into vinegar. Later, this method ofkilling harmful bacteria was adapted to a number of food products and becameknown as pasteurization. The first milk processing plant in the United States toinstall pasteurizing equipment was the Sheffield Farms Dairy in Bloomfield,New Jersey, which imported a German-made pasteurizer in 1891. Many dairyoperators opposed pasteurization as an unnecessary expense, and it wasntuntil 1908 that Chicago became the first major city to require pasteurizedmilk. New York and Philadelphia followed in 1914, and by 1917 most majorcities had enacted laws requiring that all milk be pasteurized.One of the first glass milk bottles was patented in 1884 by Dr. HenryThatcher, after seeing a milkman making deliveries from an open bucket intowhich a childs filthy rag doll had accidentally fallen. By 1889, his ThatchersCommon Sense Milk Jar had become an industry standard. It was sealed witha waxed paper disc that was pressed into a groove inside the bottles neck. Themilk bottle, and the regular morning arrival of the milkman, remained a part ofAmerican life until the 1950s, when waxed paper cartons of milk beganappearing in markets.In 1990, the annual production of milk in the United States was about 148billion lb (67.5 billion kg). This is equivalent to about 17.2 billion U.S. gallons(65.1 billion liters). About 37% of this was consumed as fluid milk and cream,about 32% was converted into various cheeses, about 17% was made intobutter, and about 8% was used to make ice cream and other frozen desserts.The remainder was sold as dry milk, canned milk, and other milk products.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONINDIAN DAIRY INDUSTRY
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION India: Worlds Largest Milk ProducerIndia has become the worlds No. 1 milk producing country, with output in1999-200 (marketing year ending March 2000) forecasted at 78 milliontonnes. United States, where the milk production is anticipated to grow onlymarginally at 71 million tonnes, occupied the top slot till 1997. In the year1997, Indias milk production was on par with the U.S. at 71 million tonnes.The world milk production in 1998 at 557 million tonnes would continue thesteady progress in recent years (see Table 1). Furthermore, the annual rate ofgrowth in milk production in India is between 5-6 per cent, against the worldsat 1 per cent. The steep rise in the growth pattern has been attributed to asustained expansion in domestic demand, although per capita consumption ismodest - at 70 kg of milk equivalent.Worlds Top Milk Producers. 1998 1997 Countries 1996 India 74 71 68 United States 71 71 70 Russian Federation 33 34 36 Pakistan 22 21 20 Brazil 22 21 19 Ukraine 14 15 16 Poland 12 12 11 New Zealand 12 11 10 Australia 10 9 9 EC 125 125 125 World (includes 557 549 542 others)
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION THE FATHER OF“WHITE REVOLUTION” IN INDIA The father of “White Revolution”
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Dr. Verghese Kurien Born on 26th November 1921Dr.Kurien graduated with Physics from Loyola College, Madras in 1940 andthen did B.E.(Mech) from the Madras University. He was very good at cricket,tennis, and boxing, and represented his college at state level. After passing outof the University, he joined the Tata Steel Technical Institute, Jamshedpurfrom where he graduated in 1946 Instead of taking the charted course of managerial career atJamshedpur, Dr.Kurien competed and qualified at the all India level selectionfor specialized studies in USA under government scholarship and passed theMaster of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Michigan StateUniversity with distinction. When he came back to India, he was posted as a Dairy Engineer at thegovernment creamery, Anand, in May 1949. Around the same time, the infantcooperative dairy, Kaira District Cooperative Milk Producers Union Limited(KDCMPUL), -- now famous as AMUL -- was fighting a battle with thePolson Dairy which was privately owned. Young Kurien, fed up with being atthe government creamery which held no challenge, volunteered to help ShriTribhuvandas Patel, the then Chairman of KDCMPUL, to set up a processingplant, which marked the birth of AMUL. The rest is history.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Dr. Kurien is a manager and institutional builder par excellence. He hasbuilt dozens of institutions including the Institute of Rural Management,Anand of which he is the founder Chairman. He is also the founder Chairmanof the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) which designed andimplemented the worlds largest dairy development programme - theOperation Flood. Dr.Kurien may rightly be called the architect of Indiasmodern dairy industry and the father of White Revolution ushered in by theAnand-pattern dairy cooperatives established under the Operation Flood. Dr.Kurien in his impressive career spanning over almost five decadeshas been honoured by several national and international organisations. He hasbeen conferred honorary doctorate degrees by several universities in India andAbroad. He has been decorated with the Padmashri (1965) Padmabhushan(1966), Krishi Ratna Award (1986) and Padma Vibhushan (1999) by thePresident of India.

KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONI Too Had a DreamCategory: Non-FictionAuthor: Dr Verghese Kurien as told toGouri SalviPublisher: Roli Books Architect of Operation Flood, the largest dairy developmentprogramme in the world, Dr Verghese Kurien has enabled India to become thelargest milk producer in the world. A man with a rare vision, Dr Kurien hasdevoted a lifetime to realising his dream – empowering the farmers of India.He has engineered the milk cooperative movement in India.It was a sheer quirk of fate that landed him in Anand where a small group offarmers were forming a cooperative, Kaira District Cooperative MilkProducers’ Union Limited (better known as Amul), to sell their milk. Intriguedby the integrity and commitment of their leader Tribhuvandas Patel, Dr Kurienjoined them. Since then there has been no looking back. The Anand pattern ofcooperatives were so successful that, at the request of the Government of
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONIndia, he set up the National Dairy Development Board to replicate it acrossIndia. He also established the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federationto market its products. In these memoirs, Dr Verghese Kurien, popularly known as thefather of the white revolution, recounts, with customary candour, the story ofhis life and how he shaped the dairy industry. Profoundly inspiring, thesememoirs help us comprehend the magnitude of his contributions and hismultifaceted personality. " I have often claimed that I have had but one good idea in my life:true development is the development of women and men. This idea took sucha hold of me that I remained in this small, sleepy town of Anand for over fiftyyears as an employee of farmers. I was never able to give this up for whatmany call "a better life". These years have, without an iota of doubt, been themost rewarding years of my life. Over the years I have spoken ceaselessly ofthis idea, hoping to enthuse young women and men to adopt my passion astheirs. I have been fortunate that there have been many who took up thechallenge."

KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONORGANIZATION OVERVIEW Of DHARWAD MILK UNIONDHARWAD MILK UNIONDharwad Milk Union (DMU) came into existence on 3-3-1986DMU was established under co-operative act on 3-3-1986 at Dharwadand Gadag, Haveri, Uttar Canara, Dharwad comes under its operation.ESTABLISHMENT:
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION The Dharwad Milk Union is Co-operative society among the 13establishments, under KMF. The Dharwad Milk Union (DMU) is oneof the most modern plants in the country. It is located in the spacious 25acres of land, located in Lakamanahalli Industrial Aria, adjacent to theNational Highway-4. it is patterned the AMUL Milk Union Dairy,Anand, Gujarat.History : A group of experienced officers, appointed by the KarnatakaMilk Federation surveyed the whole of Dharwad districts (includes twonewly formed districts Gadag and Haveri) and Uttara Karnataka.Further they found out there as a need for a milk dairy. They traveledthe surrounding villages, educated the villages about milk and milkproducts and the benefits they would get from the milk dairy. Seeing the overwhelming response and untapped resources and thehuge market the Federation decided to setup the Milk Union in 1984,known as DHARWAD DISTRICT CO-OPERATIVE MILKPRODUCERS SOCIETIES UNION LIMITED.Further in 1988, the Raipur Dairy and Chilling Center, setup in 1968,also came under the union. In 1989, the training center, which wascontrolled by KMF, came under Dharwad Milk Union.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONDMU was a Rs.7 crore project of which Government has Rs.2 crore ofshare capital and authorized capital of DMU is Rs.5 crore.DMU formed 551 milk producer’s co- operative societies in Dharwad,Gadag, Haveri and Uttar Kannada districts.The production capacity of DMU is 2 lakh liters per day and also hasthe capacity to produce 12 tones of milk powder, 10 tones of butter, 6tones of ghee per day.DMU is collecting 70 thousand liters of milk per day from its societiesand sells 60 thousand liters of milk per day and the remaining milk isused for producing milk products.Input required per day :* Milk procurement up to 70 thousand liters• 5 to 6 lakh liters of water• 10,000 units of electricity• 4 to 5 tones of coal• Generation in case of electricity failure and manpowerFunctions of DMU : * The main function of DMU is to procure milk from villagers andpay them the right price.• To educate the villagers about milk and its products.• To make ‘Nandini’ as a part of life.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION• To provide good quality of cattle feed, fodder, veterinary aid seeds, etc.,to the villagers.• To see that the DCS’s are carrying out their activities properly and in an efficient manner.• To see that the milk is brought from DCS’s to the chilling centers in the prescribed time.• To look the accounts of the DCS’s supervise the purchase process and market the milk and milk products. Objectives of DMU :• Providing hygienic and good quality of milk to the consumers.• To build the economic strength of the milk producers in villagers.• To eliminate middlemen’s in the business so that the milk producers receive their appropriate share of bread.• To educate the villagers about the adulteration of milk and its harmful effect on the body.• To see that every citizen becomes healthy by consuming good quality of milk.• To make villagers self-viable and build self image.Process at DMU : The milk collected at DCS’s is brought to the center throughcarriers, trucks etc. The quality and quantity of milk bought is checkedat the reception center by a supervisor.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION A sample of milk is taken and is tested in a laboratory for fatcontent, Solid Not Fat(SNF) acidity etc. As the milk is at room temperature it is to be brought down to 4 Cto 5 C. So that it may check the growth of bacteria. To ensure this milkis passed through a chilling chamber where the milk is chilled. Itstemperature is bought down and then the milk is stored in a tank calledas “ Ram Milk Tank “. From this tank the milk is pumped to a pasteurizing cell where themilk is heated up to 72 C and 15 seconds, so that all the bacteria andmicro-organisms may be killed and then the milk is simultaneouslycooled to 4 C to 5 C and is stored in a “ Pasteurized Milk Tank “. From here the milk is separated according to the requirement ofproduction of different types of milk and the remaining milk is used formanufacturing milk products.Departments of DMU :1. Purchasing2.

STORES QUALITY ACCOUNT CONTROL & PURCHASE PROCUREMENT AND INPUT DEPARTMENT The union carries on procurement by setting up co-operative societiesat village level. Later milk is collected in the chilling centre. Milk collectedfrom the milk centre, is first tested. There is milk –testing equipments for thispurpose. Then a survey on availability of transportation facilities andproductive capacity of villages are conducted. If the marketable surplus ismore than 150 liters pre day, a society is formed. Further 10 promoters areselected from the village and are given the responsibilities of collecting the
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION capital for the society by selling shares. Procurement is done twice a day and payment is made on the basis of percentage of content and SNF in the milk. After this, milk is sent to Union else chilling center, whichever is near. At the chilling center, milk is chilled up to 4 degree Celsius. Later this chilled milk is sent to Union in Insulated Tankers for further processing. The main function of this department is to procure milk different areas throughout the year. The department also provides facilities that help in enhancing more productivity. The main function of p & I department is to organize, supervise and operate village dairy co-operative societies and to procure more milk from village societies.

KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION PRODUCTION AND PROCESS DEPARTMENT The main objective of this department is to follow up productionschedule as per plan and to maintain close and co-ordinate relationship withother department and ensures to upgrade the technical efficiency ofproduction. Milk, as it is highly perishable product has to processedimmediately to avoid spoilage milk respect to its flavor, texture and taste
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Production department is well equipped and has various types of highlysophisticated machines imported from Sweden and Denmark. Once the milk isreceived from p & I department, it is first weighed with the help of weighingbowl. Later, it is poured in dump tank. Sample testing is made throughlactometer reading and other tests. The fat and SNF content of each sample ofmilk is accessed the cow and buffalo’s milk are separately received and sent tothe production section separately through two different stainless steel pipes. Later, the raw milk is passed through plate chiller of variable capacitywhere it is cooled up to 4-5 degrees Celsius. This cooled raw material isfurther stored in a silo of 30,000 liters capacity.PURPOSE OF CHILING This is done to avoid the growth of micro organisms, which areresponsible for spoilage of milk and bitter taste. The milk, which is stored insilos, is pumped through pipeline to the balance tank, which helps to maintainthe steady speed flow of milk in the pasteurization machine. In, DMU, thereare 2 milk pasteurization machine and 1 Cream pasteurization machine.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION PURPOSE OF PASTEURIZATION Pasteurization is a process where milk is heated to high temperature and cooled instantly, to destroy any microorganism. The pasteurized milk will stored in pasteurized milk silos and then sent to pre-packing section. Package is done in 500ml and stored in cold storage at 7 degree. PRODUCTION PRODUCTION PROCESS DCSFresh liquid milk Sample testing
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Chilling Fat and SNF StoringPasteurizationHomogenization Storing Packing Dispatch PASTEURIZATION OF CREAM: The milk in bulk is taken to the cream separator. Here, the cream is separated. The cream is passed through cream pasteurization Unit. This cream is sent to Butter section. The milk with no fat is skimmed milk. This skim milk is pumped back to pasteurization Unit and heated to 72 using steam and chilled to 4 using chilled water and stored silos. This skimmed milk is sent to powder section. The pasteurize cream is mixed in portion to Pasteurized milk.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONCURDS: Raw milk is heated to 90 and allowed to cool to 30. Later culture isadded to it and packed; the curd is formed in the packet itself. It is stored andpacked in 200gms and 500gms.BUTTER: The cream , which is stored in cream refining tank, is taken to thechurning section where it is churned. Here butter fat and butter milk areseparated . The vacuum pump removes excess of moisture and butter comesout of continuous butter making machine (capacity-1500kgs/hour).Butter ispakd in 100, 200and 500gms and also in 10, 25 gms, these are stored in deepfreezer room with temperature -22 and if the order of salt butter they mix saltwater with cream and other process is same.GHEE: There are 2 Ghee Boiler of capacity 1500kgs/batch. A butter of 2.5 tons ismelted and is brought Ghee Boiler. Here it is heated to 116-117 degree Celsiusfor 15 minutes so that the residue is allowed to settle down and Ghee is passedsetting tank through clarifies. Later Ghee is allowed for cooling (at 30 to 40)and packed in Tin of liter, 500ml and 200ml pack and kept in the cold storage.PANEER:
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION If there is excess of milk, then, paneer is made. The milk is heated to 90 for15 to 20 minutes. Glacial acetic acid is added to milk, and then milk is strainedthrough fine muslin cloth. The solid portion is retained and put in water andthen it is put in chilled water and left over night. Later it is packed and storedin cold storage.MILK POWDER: When there is excess of milk. Milk powder is made the capacity of thepowder plant is 12tons. There are two sections-Evaporator and spray driverthrough which milk is converted to Milk powder. In Evaporator, milk is boiledfor 55 at high vacuum, Milk is concentrated to drier 40-45 of milk is solid,moisture is removed and the milk powder obtained consists of 4% moisture.PEDHA: Dharwad is famous for its delicious pedhas DMU has separate pedhasection. About 80 liters (depends upon the demand ) is heated continuously for3 hours till the milk is semi-solid, later sugar and other ingredients are addedand stirred continuously on low flame. Later it cooled and it is shaped in smallballs and packed.The milk produced here is differentiated by the content of FAT andSNF

KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Distribution Distribution is one of the four aspects of marketing. A distributionbusiness is the middleman between the manufacturer and retailer or (usually)incommercial or industrial the business customer. After a product ismanufactured by a supplier/factory, it is typically stored in a distributioncompanys warehouse. The product is then sold to retailers or customers. Theother three parts of the marketing mix are product management, pricing, andpromotion. Traditionally, distribution has been seen as dealing with logistics.The Distribution ChannelFrequently there may be a chain of intermediaries; each passing the productdown the chain to the next organization, before it finally reaches the consumeror end-user. This process is known as the distribution chain or, rather moreexotically, as the channel. Each of the elements in these chains will have theirown specific needs; which the producer must take into account, along withthose of the all-important end-user.ChannelsA number of alternative `channels of distribution may be available: 1. Selling direct (via a salesforce) 2. Mail order (including Internet and telephone sales) 3. Retailer 4. Wholesaler 5. Agent (who acts on behalf of the producer)
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Vertical MarketingThis relatively recent development integrates the channel with the originalsupplier - producer, wholesalers and retailers working in one unified system.This may arise because one member of the chain owns the other elements(often called `corporate systems integration); a supplier owning its own retailoutlets, this being forward integration. It is perhaps more likely that a retailerwill own its own suppliers, this being backward integration. (For example,MFI, the furniture retailer, owns Hygena which makes its kitchen andbedroom units.) The integration can also be by franchise (such as that offeredby McDonalds hamburgers and Benetton clothes) or simple co-operation (inthe way that Marks & Spencer co-operates with its suppliers).Alternative approaches are `contractual systems, often led by a wholesale orretail co-operative, and `administered marketing systems where one(dominant) member of the distribution chain uses its position to co-ordinatethe other members activities. This has traditionally been the form led bymanufacturers.The intention of vertical marketing is to give all those involved (andparticularly the supplier at one end, and the retailer at the other) control overthe distribution chain. This removes one set of variables from the marketingequations.Other research indicates that vertical integration is a strategy which is bestpursued at the mature stage of the market (or product). At earlier stages it canactually reduce profits. It is arguable that it also diverts attention from the realbusiness of the organization. Suppliers rarely excel in retail operations and, intheory, retailers should focus on their sales outlets rather than onmanufacturing facilities ( Marks & Spencer, very deliberately providesconsiderable amounts of technical assistance to its suppliers, but does not ownthem).
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Horizontal MarketingA rather less frequent example of new approaches to channels is where two ormore non-competing organizations agree on a joint venture - a joint marketingoperation - because it is beyond the capacity of each individual organizationalone. In general, this is less likely to revolve around marketing synergy. RetailersLike for wholesalers, it may be that you only use retailers if youmanufacture your own products: again, evidencing the larger smallerbusiness. Retailers can promote your product by making consumersaware of its availability and by passing on technical information thatcould encourage the sale.Because there are thousands of retailers located all around thecountry, they are an excellent intermediary for distributing your productto a wide geographical range of consumers.Today, many retailers prefer to buy their products directly fromproducers (you) instead of going through wholesalers: this is typical ofsupermarkets. By selling directly to retailers, the added expense oftransportation is the only issue.Small businesses account for a high proportion of retailers and so theycan often find themselves at the end or in the middle of a distributionchannel, where their own channel of selling to a consumer would bedirect.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Using Multiple Channels of DistributionWhen analyzing which distribution channel is best for your business,you should not restrict yourself to one channel, but instead adopt anumber of channels that are suitable for selling your product/serviceefficiently and effectively (if necessary).For example, a business may use a retailer to sell their product and atthe same time, use direct mail and telemarketing to further encouragesales: there are a number of feasible combinations. Choosing the Right Distribution ChannelThere are several factors affecting how you may decide on the mostappropriate distribution channel(s). A few of these are highlightedbelow:Profit and Sales • Which channels will maximise sales and profit? Using intermediaries such as agents, retailers and wholesalers can distribute your product on a wider scale but can often lead to reduced profit levels. Finding the right balance is the key
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONProduct/Service • Perishable products such as certain foods (e.g. milk) usually require direct sales because of their short shelf lives. The same principle applies to fragile products to reduce the amount of transportation and handling • Arguably, services need to be sold direct or through intermediaries that provide a strong link between the consumer and the business such as direct mail, e-commerce or telemarketing. This way the consumer can specifically give their situation or requirements directly to the business so a tailored service can be provided • Products of low value that are manufactured in high quantities may be influenced to take a distribution channel involving a wholesaler. This way, it reduces the issue of storage, as wholesalers will buy in bulkThe Consumer • How convenient is it for them to purchase your product or service • Who is your target audience
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONTelemarketingSelling your product/service through telemarketing is becomingincreasingly popular. Similar to direct mail, telemarketing allows salesto be made on a local, national and global scale, although the costs willincrease with the time and distance of phone calls. Extra skills mayalso be required creating the need for more staff. Alternatively, aprofessional service can be consulted to carry out the task: with anincreased cost and/or commission.Agents/BrokersAn agent or broker will help sell your product/service, but will not takeownership of what they are selling at any time. They usually work oncommission taking a percentage of the total sales made bythemselves. An agency or brokerage will sell your product or service,for example insurance, tickets for entertainment, accommodation, etc.This can be directly to the consumer or to retailers and wholesalers.Agents/brokers can sell your product on a scale than extends from yourbusiness premises and are very useful for expanding your businessinto foreign markets.Perhaps the most common example of an agent would be a travelagency. They never own the holidays or credit the full amount of thesale to their business. Instead, they act as a link between the holidayresort and the consumer, taking a commission on the sales.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONWholesalersIt may be that you only sell to a wholesaler if you manufacture yourown products: possibly evidencing a larger small business. If this is thecase, a wholesaler can be used to distribute your products reaching apotentially large number of consumers. The main function of awholesaler is to provide a link between the producer (you) and theretailer. The advantage of selling to a wholesaler is that they often buyin bulk, splitting the purchase into smaller manageable quantities forfurther selling to retailers.Once selling to a wholesaler, there are three ways that your productwill reach the consumer. Firstly, the consumer will purchase directlyfrom the wholesaler: this is the less common route out of the three.Alternatively, your products will be sold on by the wholesaler toretailers.The other advantages of selling to a wholesaler are that they may havestrong links with quality retailers: research will help discover this fact. Inaddition, because they buy in bulk, it reduces the burden of on-sitestorage at your premises reducing overhead costs. Further,wholesalers will also take away the burden of transportation, as theyoften have their own network of transport delivering goods directly toretailers, which would normally be your responsibility.The disadvantage of using a wholesaler to distribute your products isthat they cannot market your products extensively. Further, becausethey buy in bulk, it is often you will sell at a price much lower than thefinal retail price. Therefore, the wholesaler will take some of the profitbecause they will sell on your products in smaller quantities at a higherprice.

KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Who are selling more milk? They want more commission like slab rates whom sales 100 liter fix the commission, and who sales more than 100 fix commission differently. Always send extra milk with vehicle. When order given for more milk the organization will not send that extra. When they don’t need they are sending more. Some agent’s need the cooling boxes concentrate on this also. CONCLUSION Clearly Nandini milk is a long way to go before it becomes a majorplayer in south India in the perishable goods like Nandini milk and otherproducts. Its Brand image is the cutting edge to its marketing strategy. K.M.Fhas its brand image from 30 years. The only thing K.M.F needs to developstrong promotional activities which concentrating more in satisfaction of theagents and retailers and also concentrate on rural market and housewives,which help to improving sales. While conducting a survey I came to know about many agents andretailers are proffered Nandini Brand milk.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATIONIf the organization will give more commission and other promotional activitieslike advertisement material boards and paint to shop. And also filed officersmeet continues to agents and retailers definitely it will become more marketshare in the Karnataka. There should be some competition in the market from Nandini to otherbrand milk products so Nandini conduct some offers conduct some scratchcards, prizes (who are high volume sales) for agents and dealers. To avoid indelays in the issue of scheme befits etc. FINDINGS OF RESEARCH The market potential has immense significance in the field ofmarketing, market can not ignore the market opportunities or the market to beused that are prevailing and going to occur in the market, this is becausetoday’s market is basically competition oriented to out perform other andcapture large market shareAs per the survey it clears the all the agents and retailers are getting thecomplaints of Nandini milk productsAs per the survey I came to know that:
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION As considering Nandini milk Nandini stands for first in selling the milk. Toned milk is high selling milk in K.M.F- Dharwad. By conducting the survey I came to know about that Nandini toned milk and standard are high selling goods. No sales person or sales managervisit the agents and retailers to get their feedbacks. Perishability of Nandini milk is very highy compared to other brand of milk. Most of the agents are part timers No credit or extension of time for cash payment. Most of the agents and retailers are not satsfied with the commission . Other milk products like arokya, spurthi, sri krishna etc are selling well in the market because of they are paying more commission. K.M.F –dharwad are doing very less promotional activities compare to other milk brands. Nandini milk products are selling very well, but still improvement on some cases is required. Agents and dealers meetings not conducted regularly which resulted in poor relationship with dealers and agents. Availability of milk in different points is not known through displays which resulted in poor result.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION After removing milk from cold store till the consumer point proper care for minting temperature of milk are not training. RECOMMENDATIONS For any organization to survive in this competitive market thecompany should adopt a distribution channel which will help not only theorganization but also its agents and retailers. There fore the following points should be consider and adopt by theorganization in order to create his good will, brand image and profit. The company gives increase commission to the agents and retailers so that they get motivated to sell more Nandini milk and its products. This can be done by having some offers, gifts specifically for agents and retailers.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION The organization should add some more agents’ on the distribution channel to add some more agents in the same route it will help for decreasing the cost of transportation. The marketing filed officers will meet regularly and motivate to sell the products. The main mediator of the organization is the agent and retailers they know the customer behavior and preference while purchasing the milk so they can easily find out the problem of the product. So continues contact with the agents will give good feedback from the agent 68% of the agents are facing the exchange of damaged milk so improve the packaging of the product. Time taken for Dispatching the route vehicle and time taken for security check in two points has to be minimized for timely dispatch. Most of the time milk sold in the festival and marriage season. There should be a quick and timely response to the problems of agents and customers from marketing as well as production section. The problem of milk spoilage in the evening that has to be solved. Milk availability throughout the day is totally not found this has to be brought in practice.
KARNATAKA MILK FEDRATION Target of reaching at last point at 5.30 am in all routes must be ensured by cross check by filed staff regularly. Filling the milk pouches in the crates with proper ice quantity Constant guidelines, encouragement, counseling must be done to the staff of marketing and production to maintain and upgrading the good relationship between two departments. Which is the basic necessity to run the entire activities of marketing to achieve the goals successfully?
