    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 1 | P a g e CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION What is Consumer Awareness? Consumer awareness is the understanding and knowledge that a buyer should have of his rights as a customer. The awareness is very important for the buyer since it permits him to get the most from what he buys. The Beverages (soft-drink) industry comprises companies that manufacture non alcoholic beverages and carbonated mineral waters or concentrates and syrups for the manufacture of carbonated beverages. Naturally occurring bubbling or sparkling mineral waters have been popular for thousands of years: the ancient Greeks believed that such waters had medicinal properties and bathed in them regularly; the Romans established resorts around mineral springs throughout Europe. Soft Drinks were common preference among all the individuals, irrespective of the age group as it had great brand value and great advertisement. Market Research is based on some underlying parameters like:  Changing consumption pattern  Advertisements  Taste and price Beverage Industry in India India offers the greatest potential for the beverage industry. The country accounts for almost 10 per cent of global beverage consumption. That makes beverage consumption in India the third largest in the world after the United States and China. Today, it is being looked as a country that offers the greatest potential, even more so than China. This year, the beverage industry in India is being estimated to grow at 17 per cent. Non-alcoholic Drinks Company actually sees India as a potential market because of the kind of summer that India sees. The Coca-Cola Company reported its profit climbed 43 per cent in the second quarter to two billion dollar, getting a boost from double-digit unit case volume growth. The Indian CSD (carbonated soft drinks) market stands at 1.2 billion dollar and the fruit-based beverages and bottled water at 600 million dollar and 300 million dollar, respectively. A sale is the act of selling a product or service in return for money or other compensation. In any business organization, sales is the department that generates revenue. A sales process contains the seven steps: Prospecting, Approach, Presentation, Demonstration, Handling Objections, Closing, Follow-up. Sales versus Marketing While it is sometimes difficult to draw the line at where the marketing process ends and the sales efforts begin, the sales effort is the effort that actually collects the money -- or the obligation to buy, in the case of a purchase order or financed arrangement. The marketing effort creates favorable conditions for the sale to take place. In a nutshell, the marketer leads the horse to water; the sales team makes it drink.

    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 5 | P a g e CHAPTER 3: INDUSTRY PROFILE 3.1 History of the Industry Development of the first man-made sparkling or carbonated water is credited to Joseph Priestley, the British scientist who discovered oxygen. In 1772 he invented a method of "pushing" carbon dioxide into water by dissolving it under pressure, thus creating fairly long-lasting bubbles. The technique led to development of the soft-drink industry. By the beginning of the 19th century, carbonated water was being made commercially in France and North America; shortly thereafter, flavors (normally fruit concentrates) were added to enliven the taste. In the 1820s, small carbonated bottling operations were established in Canada, producing carbonated drinks in refillable bottles which were merchandised as medicinal elixirs or tonics. Most soft drinks are still carbonated to give drinks a "tangy bite" and to stimulate the tongue. The principle of "pushing" carbon dioxide is still used, but now the water is first purified in a process known as "polishing." Cooled carbon dioxide is then injected at pressures of 275-550 kilopascals. Other packaging innovations since the mid-1960s include canned carbonated beverages, nonreturnable glass bottles and containers made from rigid plastics. However, an effort is being made, often through provincial legislation, to increase the use of returnable glass containers. The Beverages (soft-drink) industry comprises companies that manufacture non alcoholic beverages and carbonated mineral waters or concentrates and syrups for the manufacture of carbonated beverages. Leading Indian companies with direct and allied interests in the non-alcoholic beverage industry have come together to form the Indian Beverage Association (IBA). These companies include Dabur India Ltd, Red Bull India Pvt. Ltd, Tetra Pak India Pvt. Ltd, Pearl Drinks Ltd, Bengal Beverages Ltd, Jain Irrigation Systems Ltd, Coca-Cola India and Pepsico India Holdings Pvt. Ltd. The Indian Soft Drinks Manufacturers Association (ISDMA) is also a member of the IBA. The Indian Beverage Association is the first such industry organization in India. It intends to act as a common voice for the non-alcoholic beverage industry and play an increasingly significant role in the growth of this sector, a sector that drives the economy by providing employment opportunities and driving Income growth. 3.2 Major players & their main products in the beverage industry Major players in the beverage industry are Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd, Pepsico India Holding Pvt. Ltd, Parle Agro, Dabur India Ltd & RC cola. Hindustan Coca-cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd. has the product range of Coca-Cola, Thums Up, Fanta, Limca, Maaza, Sprite, Kinley water, Kinley Soda, Minute Maid (Juice). Pepsico India Holding Pvt. Ltd. has the product range of Pepsi, 7UP, Mountain Dew, Slice, Aquafina, Tropicana (juice). Parle Agro has the main products like Frooti, Appy, Appy Fizz & Dabur India Ltd has the product of Real in the juice segment.
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 6 | P a g e Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 35% annually, Indian non- carbonated drink market is likely to touch Rs. 54,000 crore by 2015 from the current level of Rs. 22,000 crore including fruit drinks, nectars and juices etc, a study conducted by ASSOCHAM said. Factors that have fuelled this industry's growth are greater disposable incomes, particularly in urban areas; consumers are seeking healthier beverages even if they are relatively more expensive, due to their positioning. Also raising awareness levels with regard to obesity and other weight related health issues, especially amongst teenagers and young adults, has helped push sales of non-carbonates, says an industry specific analysis of The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India. ASSOCHAM findings indicate that a strong shift in consumer beverage demand towards non carbonated alternatives, creating new opportunities for drinks manufactures in the country. The most traditional Indian beverages comprise Lassi, Chach, Sharbat, Thandai, Kanj, or milk shake, nimbu pani (lemonade), badam doodh and coconut water. The soft drink market is predominantly urban with 25% contribution from rural areas & mineral water market in India is a 65 million crates industry. 3.3 PEST Analysis of Beverage Industry  Political/Legal Factors  Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulation All the food products manufacturers and producers are under the control of FDA. For instance, the food and drug administration certifies and tests new ingredients such as high concentration sweeteners prior to they are permitted to be used in beverages and soft drink production.  Human Rights Issue Multinational corporations are facing different human rights issues, rules, regulations, laws and policies of different governments in operating countries.  Waste management and public concerns Increasing environmental consciousness is most important to growing legislation. The firm’s operation is exaggerated by federal legislative applications that concentrate on the four objectives. 1. Decrease the quantity of packaging material inflowing the nation’s solid waste management system 2. Diminish the consumption of natural scarce resources 3. Increase the reuse and recycling packaging materials To shelter the natural environment and human health from undesirable effects related with the dumping of packaging materials. For instance, Connecticut has now passed a law that controls packaging to enlarge its recyclability.
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 7 | P a g e  Economic Factors The main factors taken into deliberation are the market risks, which a Pepsi company is bared to commodity prices, foreign exchange rate and interest rate. These elements are described as follows.  Commodity prices Commodity prices distress the raw material cost, Pepsi Company is opened to market risk due to the commodities prices, because in competitive environment where Pepsi is operating, would limited its capability from improving costs during higher pricing.  Foreign exchange & global economic conditions Operating in global environment is not as easy as operating in local market, because it involve the exposure to currency exchange rates variations. This generally affects the interest rate, economic growth, government actions inflation and other economic factors. These changes could affect the Pepsi and Coke to adjust their operating and financing strategies. Variations in global currency exchanging rates and macro-economic conditions could affect the international operating profits and business of the Pepsi and Coke.  Interest rate Pepsi and Coca Cola could control their general financing in term of harmonizing risks and investment opportunities. To minimize overall borrowing costs firms in beverage industry are using currency swaps and interest rate to significantly adapt the rates in order to minimize the borrowing cost.  Socio-cultural factors Now-a-days consumers are not brand loyal as they were previously, now they can easily switch to another product. Consumer choice for beverages and soft drinks is affected by two major characteristics such as ethnicity and age. Due to health reason, age factor plays very important role when choosing a soft drink or beverage. Some studies have been conducted and found that soft drinks and cola products in general may result health problems specially, kidney stones. In compare to adults, younger consumers specially teens and twenties have fewer interest spans for products and have a preference of products that seems different and to be fun. Now players in beverages industry changes to non cola products for instance bottled water, sports drinks, tea etc.
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 8 | P a g e  Technological factors Technological advancement in manufacturing and new quality improvement concepts such JIT, Six Sigma, MRP-II etc are the significant providers to improve efficiency of bottling operations and quality of products. Advancement in technology also helps to introduce new product lines for example new flavors, sugar-free or diet sweeteners, caffeine free goods facilitates Pepsi and Coke to launch brands that meet changing customer style, preferences and taste. In beverage industry distribution process is a big challenge because process can be able to place the right products at right time. In soft drink industry technology can provide a competitive advantage, if it is applied in area such as logistic products into stores less extravagantly and costs beyond the distribution pipeline while increasing sales information availability. Overall Carbonated Soft Drinks Market in India: Rs 13,000 Crore 15% 14% 13% 9%8% 42% Thums Up Rs 1,950 Cr Sprite Rs 1,820 Cr Pepsi Rs 1,625 Cr Coke Rs 1.105 Cr Mountain Dew Rs 1,105 Cr Other
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 9 | P a g e CHAPTER 4: COMPANY PROFILE 4.1 Coca-Cola History Coca-Cola history began in 1886 when the curiosity of an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John S. Pemberton, led him to create a distinctive tasting soft drink that could be sold at soda fountains. He created a flavored syrup, took it to his neighbourhood pharmacy, where it was mixed with carbonated water and deemed "excellent" by those who sampled it. Dr. Pemberton's partner and bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, is credited with naming the beverage "Coca-Cola" as well as designing the trademarked, distinct script, still used today. Did you know? ………..The first servings of Coca-Cola were sold for 5 cents per glass. During the first year, sales averaged a modest nine servings per day in Atlanta. Today, daily servings of Coca-Cola beverages are estimated at 1.8 billion globally. Prior to Dr. John S. Pemberton’s death in 1888, just two years after creating what was to become the world's 1-selling sparkling beverage, Dr. Pemberton sold portions of his business to various parties, with the majority of the interest sold to Atlanta businessman, Asa G. Candler. Under Mr. Candler's leadership, distribution of Coca-Cola expanded to soda fountains beyond Atlanta. In 1894, impressed by the growing demand for Coca-Cola and the desire to make the beverage portable, Joseph Biedenharn installed bottling machinery in the rear of his Mississippi soda fountain, becoming the first to put Coca-Cola in bottles. Large scale bottling was made possible just five years later, when in 1899, three enterprising businessmen in Chattanooga, Tennessee secured exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca- Cola. The three entrepreneurs purchased the bottling rights from Asa Candler for just $1. Benjamin Thomas, Joseph Whitehead and John Lupton developed what became the Coca- Cola worldwide bottling system. Among the biggest challenges for early bottlers, were imitations of the beverage by competitors coupled with a lack of packaging consistency among the 1,000 bottling plants at the time. The bottlers agreed that a distinctive beverage needed a standard and distinctive bottle, and in 1916, the bottlers approved the unique contour bottle. The new Coca-Cola bottle was so distinctive it could be recognized in the dark and it effectively set the brand apart from competition. The contoured Coca-Cola bottle was trademarked in 1977. 4.2 Evolution of The Coca-Cola Bottle The 1980s featured such memorable slogans as "Coke is It!", "Catch the Wave" and "Can't Beat the Feeling". In 1993, Coca-Cola experimented with computer animation, and the popular "Always Coca-Cola" campaign was launched in a series of ads featuring animated polar bears. Each animated ad in the "Always Coca-Cola" series took 12 weeks to produce from beginning to end. The bears were, and still are, a huge hit with consumers because of their embodiment of characteristics like innocence, mischief and fun. A favorite feature at the World of Coca-Cola is the ability to have your photo taken with the beloved 7' tall Coca-Cola Polar Bear.
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 10 | P a g e Did you know? One of the most famous advertising slogans in Coca-Cola history "The Pause That Refreshes" first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post in 1929. The theme of pausing with Coca-Cola refreshment is still echoed in today's marketing. In 2009, the "Open Happiness" campaign was unveiled globally. The central message of "Open Happiness" is an invitation to billions around the world to pause, refresh with a Coca- Cola, and continue to enjoy one of life's simple pleasures. The "Open Happiness" message was seen in stores, on billboards, in TV spots and printed advertising along with digital and music components -- including a single featuring Janelle Monae covering the 1980 song, "Are You Getting Enough Happiness?" The happiness theme continued with "Open the Games. Open Happiness" featured during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, followed by a 2010 social media extension, "Expedition 206" -- an initiative whereby three happiness ambassadors travel to 206 countries in 365 days with one mission: determining what makes people happy. The inspirational year-long journey is being recorded and communicated via blog posts, tweets, videos and pictures. 4.3 The Coca-Cola Company re-entered India through its wholly owned subsidiary, Coca-Cola India Private Limited and re-launched Coca-Cola in 1993 after the opening up of the Indian economy to foreign investments in 1991. Since then its operations have grown rapidly through a model that supports bottling operations, both company owned as well as locally owned and includes over 7,000 Indian distributors and more than 2.2 million retailers. Today, their brands are the leading brands in most beverage segments. The Coca-Cola Company's brands in India include Coca-Cola, Fanta Orange, Limca, Sprite, Thums Up, Burn, Kinley, Maaza, Minute Maid Pulpy Orange, Minute Maid Nimbu Fresh and the Georgia Gold range of teas and coffees and Vitingo (a beverage fortified with micro-nutrients). In India, the Coca-Cola system comprises of a wholly owned subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Company namely Coca-Cola India Pvt Ltd which manufactures and sells concentrate and beverage bases and powdered beverage mixes, a Company-owned bottling entity, namely, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt Ltd; thirteen licensed bottling partners of The Coca- Cola Company, who are authorized to prepare, package, sell and distribute beverages under certain specified trademarks of The Coca-Cola Company; and an extensive distribution system comprising of their customers, distributors and retailers. Coca-Cola India Private Limited sells concentrate and beverage bases to authorized bottlers who are authorized to use these to produce our portfolio of beverages. These authorized bottlers independently develop local markets and distribute beverages to grocers, small retailers, supermarkets, restaurants and numerous other businesses. In turn, these customers make their beverages available to consumers across India. The Coca-Cola system in India has already invested USD 2 Billion till 2011, since its re- entry into India. The company will be investing another USD 5 Billion till the year 2020.
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 11 | P a g e The Coca-Cola system in India directly employs over 25,000 people including those on contract. The system has created indirect employment for more than 1,50,000 people in related industries through its vast procurement, supply and distribution system. They strive to ensure that their work environment is safe and inclusive and that there are plentiful opportunities for their people in India and across the world. The beverage industry is a major driver of economic growth. A National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) study on the carbonated soft-drink industry indicates that this industry has an output multiplier effect of 2.1. This means that if one unit of output of beverage is increased, the direct and indirect effect on the economy will be twice of that. In terms of employment, the NCAER study notes that "an extra production of 1000 cases generates an extra employment of 410 man days." As a Company, their products are an integral part of the micro economy particularly in small towns and villages, contributing to creation of jobs and growth in GDP. Coca-Cola in India is amongst the largest domestic buyers of certain agricultural products. As an industry which has strong backward and forward linkages, our operations catalysis growth in demand for products like glass, plastic, refrigeration, transportation, and Industrial and agricultural products. Their operations also lead to incremental growth for enterprises engaged in post-production activities like merchandising, marketing and sales. In addition, they share best practices and technological advancements with their suppliers, vendors and allied industries which often lead to improvement in the overall standards of quality across industries. The Coca-Cola Company has always placed high value on good citizenship. Their basic proposition entails that their Company's business should refresh the market; enrich the workplace; protect and preserve the environment; and strengthen the community. They leverage their unique strengths to actively support and respond to local needs -- be it the need for education, health, water or nutrition. They have used our distribution network for disaster relief, their marketing prowess to raise awareness on issues such as PET recycling, and their presence in communities to improve access to education and potable water. The Coca-Cola India Foundation is now taking forward in the community at large, projects and programs of social relevance to carry forward the message of inclusive growth and development.

They may come from many sources, such as previous customers, new opening outlet of different channel type, Competitors Outlets of market.
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 29 | P a g e Step 2: The Approach Market Developer should carefully prepare his/her approach to potential customers. All available information about prospects should be collected and analyzed by the CE & STL specially when company provide Cooler to that outlet owner for selling of the products of the company. Step 3: The Presentation The presentation is the stage at which the sales person transmits the promotional message. The usual method is to describe the discount rates on different products (for example: we had to focus on sales of 500ml kinley water & 400 ml coca-cola, so we offer the customer that he/she get 3 water bottle on purchasing of 1 case{24 bottle} of kinley water & additional discount on purchasing of 1 case of 400ml coca-cola ), margin on products to the outlet owner, and demand of the consumer which come at his/her outlet for purchasing the products which company offer. Step 4: The Demonstration In promoting new pack of 400 ml coca-cola & 500ml kinley water, the demonstration is a critical step in the sales process. A demonstration allows the prospect to become involved in the presentation. For that we had the sample bottle of both pack & show the potential customer & convince him/her for purchase. Step 5: Handling Objections. During the sales of these two products we have to face many objections from the prospect like small pack of water bottle may not accept by the consumer, less margin as compare to competitor product, him/her mindset for small pack of coca-cola. Handling of this objections by us convince him/her for purchase the products. Step 6: The closing The time at which we actually asks the prospect to buy the product. We watch for signals that the prospect is ready to buy the product & book his/her order. Step 7: The Follow-UP After-sale activities are very important in determining whether a customer will buy again later, this is called secondary outlet of that product. After the prospect agrees to buy, the salesperson should complete the order processing quickly and efficiently.

Missionary Selling  Order Processing The task of order processing involves the receipt and handling of an order. Needs are identified and pointed out to the customer, and the order is processed. The handling of orders is especially important in satisfying customer needs. Market Developer & Sales Person of the Distributor are examples of order processors. They check a store's stock, report the inventory level to the store manager, and complete the sale.  Creative Selling In creative selling, a convincing type of promotional presentation. Creative selling is used when the benefit of a product is readily apparent and its purchase is being based on a careful analysis of alternatives. In new-product (400ml coke & 500 ml kinley water) selling sales people need to be very creative if initial orders are to be secured.  Missionary Selling An indirect form of selling in which the representative markets the goodwill of a company or provides technical or operational assistance to the customer is called missionary selling.

    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 42 | P a g e  Juice segment product is most preferable or favourite by the consumer in the age group 18-30 in Gandhinagar City. Observation & Personal Interview point of view  Prashant Patel- Mehsana District 1. Mostly I was visit the rural area around the mehsana & visnager & I was observe that the distributors of the company is do the regular delivery of the beverages at their outlet & also at those outlet which is under the monopoly of competitors, STL of the company solve the issue of the outlet owner very shortly & effectively which generate the strong bonding of the outlet owner with the company. 2. Cooler related issue of the outlet is solved by the company in very short time. 3. Mehsana-Ahmedabad highway’s most of the E&D outlet is capture by the company & there is monopoly of the company at that outlets & every outlet owner is very satisfied with the company excellent service & delivery at right time. 4. Advertising at the coca-cola most effective outlet Shanku Water Park & Resort is attract the consumer of that visitor of Water Park & Resort. 5. 500ml pack of kinley water is not except by the most of the outlet because of the local brands give strong margin given to the outlet owner but by the distributor & company’s employees convince most of outlet owner ready to sale company new pack in kindly water. 6. Campaign by company in rural area should increase the awareness of the consumer toward the company. 7. Recently I see the coca-cola van which sell the coca-cola by vending machine at street and observe that most of the people go near through that van are stop & take a glass of coca-cola in just 5 Rs, which is excellent that I fill for capture more market.  Harsh Shah - West and Central Ahmedabad 1. Order generating system 2. Supply chain management 3. Tel-sale 4. Process of Launching new product
    • Brand Awareness & Sales of HCCBPL Products 43 | P a g e CHAPTER 7: RECOMMENDATIONS Research Point of view  Leading brands are most aware by the consumer as compare with the juice segment like minute made pulpy & minute made nimbu in Coca-Cola Company so that company will have to focus on that segment product advertisement for make their consumer more aware about that.  Advertisement of brand in television as well as at outlet side & design of bottle is attract the consumer toward the purchasing that product, so company in the beverages industry will have consider this thing as important.  Price & taste of cold drink is equally important for the consumer so the company has to control to price of less than the current price with maintain the taste of the each product.  Distribution segment of company is important as most of the consumer are loyal toward their favourite drink & if they don’t get it go to the other shop. Observation & Personal Interview point of view  Prashant Patel- Mehsana District 1. One common thing that I observe at most of the villages & in rural area is that most of the consumer & seller of coca-cola product are not aware with that Thums up, Limca and all other brand is come under the umbrella of the coca-cola, person of the distributor go to the outlet and says “bolo Thums up ma kae leva nu” so they thing coca-cola & Thums up are both different product so I suggest that company should give to the T-shirt with the logo of coca-cola & it should be compulsory wear by the persons who delivery the beverages at outlet. 2. Banners at the outlet specifically mehsana to Mothera road should be increase so consumer can easily identify that coca-cola products is available here & sales should be increase. 3. Normally at most of the outlet there is skim of the company to the outlet owner is 30 to 50 Rs off or 3-4 kinley soda bottle on purchase of 1 case of other beverages, I should think that kinley 500ml water pack instead of this skim should increase the awareness of new pack of water by company in consumer.  Harsh Shah - West and Central Ahmedabad 1. Discount coupons given to retailers were not reached at proper time also found some coupons having wrong entries (like wrong discounts), it disappointed some retailers, recommending to provide correct coupons on fast delivery basis
