Results and Findings Most of the people in the rural areas are not aware about the iodine as the major constituent of salt. Among the people who are aware about the iodine, many don’t know about the diseases caused by the low iodine content of salt. Most of the people in the rural areas consider Tata salt as a costlier product than other brands. There are people who say that it is not easily available in the market. So there can be problem of distribution channel in the rural areas.
Many of them can’t differentiate Tata salt from other brands on the quality and purity. Most of the people buys the salt, as preferred by the shopkeeper or considers price while buying the salt. Very few are there who differentiates the salt on the basis of the level of quality. Most of the people in the rural areas are switchers and does not stick to a particular brand. Only few hard core loyal are there.
Suggestions Camps should be organized by the company in the rural areas creating awareness regarding the purity of the salt. The company should try to organize the street plays creating awareness regarding the diseases caused by the impure or low iodine content salt. POP (Point of Purchase) should be pasted in the shops of retailers on the regular basis creating awareness about the Tata salt.
The word of mouth plays an important part in the rural areas, through shopkeeper so the shopkeepers should be made aware about the diseases caused by impure salt. The distribution channel should be made strong. The company should make the price of salt more competitive.
