PROJECT REPORT ON
Parle-G or Parle Glucose biscuits are one of the most popular confectionary bisc
uits in India. Parle-G is one of the oldest brand names in India and is the larg
est selling brand of biscuits in India. For decades, the product was instantly r
ecognized by its iconic white and yellow wax paper wrapper with the depiction of
a young girl, Sonam (calgary) covering the front.
The company's slogan is popular among the Indian consumer population, reading G
means Genius. The name, "Parle-G", is derived from the name of the Indian rail s
tation, Vile Parle, where the Parle production factory is based.
"Parle-G" boasts of being the largest selling biscuit in the world. It enjoys 70
% market share in India in the glucose biscuit category followed by Britannia Ti
ger (17-18%) and ITC's sunfeast (8-9). The brand is estimated to be worth over R
s 2,000 crore (Rs 20 billion),and contributes more than 50 per cent of the compa
ny's turnover (Parle Products is an unlisted company and its executives are not
comfortable disclosing exact numbers). Last fiscal, Parle had sales of Rs 3,500
crore (Rs 35 billion).
HISTORY OF PARLE
In 1929 a small company by the name of Parle products emerged in British dominat
ed India. The intent was to spread joy and cheer to children and adults alike, a
ll over the country with its sweets and candies. The company knew that it wouldn
’t be an easy task, but they decided to take the brave step. A small factory was
set up in the suburbs of Mumbai, to manufacture sweets and toffees. A decade la
ter it was upgraded to manufacture biscuits as well. Since then, the Parle name
has grown in all directions, won international fame and has been sweetening peop
le s lives all over India and abroad.
Apart from the factories in Mumbai and Bangalore Parle also has factories in Bah
adurgarh in Haryana and Neemrana in Rajasthan, which are the largest biscuit and
confectionery plants in the country. Additionally, Parle Products also has 7 ma
nufacturing units and 51 manufacturing units on contract.

of food products.

A long time ago, when the British ruled India, a small factory was set up in the
suburbs of of Mumbai city, to manufacture sweets and toffees. The year was 1929
and the market was dominated by famous international brands that were imported
freely. Despite the odds and unequal competition, this company called Parle Prod
ucts, survived and succeeded, by adhering to high quality and improvising from t
ime to time.
A decade later, in 1939, Parle Products began manufacturing biscuits, in additio
n to sweets and toffees. Having already established a reputation for quality, th
e Parle brand name grew in strength with this diversification. Parle Glucose and
Parle Monaco were the first brands of biscuits to be introduced, which later we
nt on to become leading names for great taste and quality.

Product life cycle
For Hide ‘n’ Seek:
Packaging and Labeling:-
The time spent by a customer for packaging up a product from a retail outlet is
a few seconds: therefore a packaging should appeal to a customer within such a s
mall interval of time. In this, both packaging and labeling play an important ro
le in attracting customers both visually & psychologically.
For Parle G:
It was recognized by its iconic white and yellow stripped wax paper wrapper with
the baby face on it.
For Hide ‘n’ Seek:
It initially came out with 3 variants: Mint, Orange, & Chocolate. But from all t
hree of them Chocolate flavor biscuit is running successfully.
Consumers are becoming increasingly health conscious. So it is essential to disp
lay the content of every product of every product. Every packet of Parle G, Parl
e Hide ‘n’ Seek Milano has information about the ingredients used, nutrition fac
ts, mailing & emailing address asking for feedback phone number, packaging date
etc. All this along with the brand name and directors are printed in Hindi too.
