  • 6. 2. INTRODUCTION India is the world s second largest producer of food next to china, and has the potential of being the biggest with the food and agricultural sector. The total food production in India is likely to double in the next ten years and there is an opportunity for large investment in food and food processing technologies, skills and equipment, specially in areas of canning, dairy and food processing, specially processing, packaging, Frozen/Refrigeration and Thermo Processing. Foods and vegetables, fisheries, Milk and Milk Products, Meat and Poultry, Packaged/Convenience Food, Alcoholic beverages and Soft Drinks and Grains and important sub- Sector of the Food Processing Industries. A health Food and Health Food supplement is another rapidly rising segment of the industry which is gaining vast popularity amongst the health conscious. India is one of the World s measures Food Producer but Accounts for less than 1.5 % of international food Trade. This indicates vast scope for both investors and exporters. Food Exports in 1998 stood at US $ 5.8 Billion whereas the World total was US $ 438 Billion. The Indian food Industries sale turnover is 140,000 Crores (1 Crores = 10 million) annually as at the start of the year 2000. The industry has the number of plants approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) outside the USA. India s Food Processing Sector covers fruit and vegetables; meat and poultry; milk and milk products, alcoholic beverages, Fisheries, Plantation, Grain Processing and Other Consumer Product groups like confectionary, Chocolates and Cocoa products, Soya- Based Products, Mineral Water, High Protein Foods,etc. We cover an executive database of an array of suppliers, manufacturers, Exports and Imports widely dealing in sectors like the food Industry, Dairy processing, Indian beverages, etc. we also cover Sector like Dairy Plants, Canning, Bottling Plants, Packaging Industries, Process Machinery, etc.
  • 7. The promising sub-sector includes Soft-drink Bottling, Confectionary manufacture, Fishing, aquaculture, Grain-milling and Grain- based Products, Meat and Poultry Processing, alcoholic beverages, Milk Processing, Tomato Paste, Fast-food, ready- to-eat breakfast cereals, Food Additives, Flavors etc. 2.1 INDIAN FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRY SET FOR A MAJOR THRUST:- Indian food processing industry is all set for a major thrust, as the rapid economic growth being achieved in the country will translate into increase disposable income. With the average Indian pending 52 % of his income on food, much larger proportion of the increase income will be set aside for consumption quite comparable to developed countries. Increase in income has a direct co-relation with the increase in process food consumption. A recent study has concluded that food processing sector is vital to India s prosperity and the percent Rs. 70 Billion industry is likely to be double to Rs. 140 Billion by 2005. The growth potential of India s food industry is enormous with food habits changing rapidly and moving towards value added foods. India is the world s second largest food producer with the potential to be the number one in the future with the Food and Agricultural Sector contributing to 26 % of India s GDP. The total Food production is likely to double in the next 10 years and there is an opportunity for large investment in Technologies, Skills and Equipments. Opportunities also exist in improving the efficiency level and to reduce the current losses and wastage in the complete food chain at every stage. In order to inject greater efficiency the industry needs to adopt the latest technologies that could provide economics of scale and cost effectiveness. Greater use of radiation technology in food processing which is being used in over four countries in the world and which has been permitted in India too and application of biotechnology will go a long way in increasing productivity and improving varieties of Fruit s and Vegetables.
  • 8. The new wave in the food industry is not only about foreign companies arriving here attached by the prospective size of the market. It is also about the migration made in India tag on food products traveling abroad. Indian food brands and Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCGs) are now increasingly finding prime shelf-space in the retail chains of the US and Europe. These include Cobra Beer, Bikanerwala Foods, MTR Foods, ready-to-eat Food, Stuff, ITC s Kitchen of India and Satnam Overseas, Basmati Rise. In a bid to boost the food sector, the government is working on agrizones and the concept of Mega Food parks. One indication of the importance that the sector received is the hiking of the present outlay for the sector from Rs. 85 Crores (US $ 19.5 Million) in 2004-05 to Rs. 180 Crores (US $ 41.35 million) the next year, more than twice the earlier amount. The government is also considering investing Rs. 100 Crores (US $ 22.97 Million) in at least 10 Mega Food Parks in the country beside working towards offering 100 % foreign investment and income Tax benefit in the sector. 2.2 CHARACTERSTICS OF INDIAN FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRY:- The ministry of food processing estimates the size of the food processing industry at Rs. 3,150 Billion (US $ 70 Billion), including Rs. 990 Billion (US $ 22 Billion) of Value added Products. The food processing industry is established to grow at 9- 12 %, on the basis of an estimated GDP growth rate of 6-8 %, during the 10th plant period. Value addition of food product is expected to increase from the current rate 8 % percent to 35 % by the end of 2025. Fruit and Vegetable Processing which is currently around 2 % of total production will increase to 10 % by 2010 and to 25 % by 2025.

Marine products export was the single largest constitute of the total export of the processed foods contributing over 40 % of total process food exports. Five- year tax holiday for new food processing unit in fruits and vegetable processing along with other benefits in budget 2004-05 has bolstered the government s resolution of encouraging growth in this sector.

  • 11. 3. COMPANY PROFILE Founded as a small family enterprise in 1963 by partners H.Z. Gilani and A.K. Tejani, Gits is now at the forefront of the instant foods revolution in India. Pioneering the ready-to-cook concept with a range of dehydrated soup mixes such as Tomato, Vegetable and Chicken, Gits moved on to bring diverse traditional Indian foods from 'Halwais' (sweet makers) and 'Bawarchis' (chefs) to the home. Gits has captured India's fast growing market through its quality products, formidable distribution network and aggressive marketing strategy. The company now manufactures a whole range of Indian snacks developed and perfected by rigorous in-house R&D. This has enabled Gits to roll full steam to a position of brand leadership. Gits has won awards consecutively over the years for its growing exports. Today, exports to USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Europe account for 35% of total revenue. This unprecedented growth was secured under the leadership of Joint Managing Directors, M.A. Tejani and R.H. Gilani. Gits' primary concern is quality: A commitment that necessitates consistent investment in Technology and modern equipment. Gits products are manufactured by automatic machines in strictly hygienic conditions at plants in Pune and Nasik. The ultra-modern dairy plant at Nandur is supplied and installed by Alfa-Laval. Rigorous implementation of strict quality control ensures that Gits products always match high purity standards. Only farm fresh produce provide the raw materials for its products. ISO 9000, a systems benchmark of international standards, is under implementation in the organisation. Gits' growing national distribution network presently comprises depots and C&F agents stationed in every major Indian state. Distribution depth is provided by 600 distributors located across India. A hundred strong sales force provides the cutting edge to the company's marketing and merchandising efforts.
  • 12. In its globalisation effort, Gits is further developing its strong export market in the Middle East, USA, UK and other European countries. After achieving successes by focusing export efforts on the South Asian community, Gits is strategically broadening its target group to include the Non- Asian, and has flagged off this strategy launching new international style export packaging. Streamlining of manufacturing process and strengthening of the marketing and distribution networks are part of the on-going efforts. R&D operation are geared to extend product lines while retaining core competencies. Consumer satisfaction remains Gits' hallmarks as it ventures to new destinations ahead. 3.1 PRODUCTS Traversing and integrating the entire country, Gits brings a mouth- watering range of Indian delights. For the sweet tooth, it offers Gulab Jamun Mix and Jilebi Mix - universal favorites. Lovers of South-Indian cuisine can choose from Idli, Rava (Semolina) Idli, Dosa and Sambhar Mix. Gits' Dhokla Mix and Khaman Dhokla come to you straight from Gujarat in Western India. Gits Pakoda entertains guests at teatime, another national favorite. Bengali sweets, an offering from the east, will be launched shortly. Working on the platform of instant mixes, Gits then targeted the famous Indian Papads, and was the first to bring to the market fully machine-made papads of all varieties in standard sizes. A unique line of Mini Papads was launched, and new lip- smacking varieties of Mini Papads based on Potato, Corn and Rice have been added to the range. Exploring new tracks, Gits has diversified into the dairy products segment. Two companies, namely: Convenience Foods Pvt. Ltd. and Clover Foods Pvt. Ltd., were set up to manufacture pure ghee, dairy whitener and milk powder under the trusted Gits brand name. Gits Pure Ghee has been awarded the Agmark special grade in recognition of its superior quality by the government of India. Gits Milk Powder bears the ISI quality mark issued by
  • 13. the Bureau of Indian standards (Govt. of India). Gits will soon unveil Whole Milk Powder, Skim Milk Powder and other dairy products.
  • 14. 3.2 MISSION STATEMENT We Believe:- There is no limit to what a man can do if he doesn t care who gets the creator. We make a living by what we get; We make a life by what we give. What we give up power; You gain power. Attitudes are contagious ..; Is your work catching? Sure to win if you think to win. How True:- Whatever work you are doing is worth doing well. Know your limits but Try to exceed them. Goals are just dreams with deadlines. See the invisible . Do the impossible. Abilities not used are abilities wasted. Inside every difficulty lies an opportunity.
  • 15. Because the Customer:- Because the customer has a need, We have a job to do. Because the customer has a choice, We must be the better choice. Because the customer has sensibilities, We must be considerate. Because the customer has an urgency, We must be quick. Because the customer has high expectations, We must excel. Because the customer is unique, We must be flexible. Because the customer has influence, We have the hope of more customers. Because of the customer, We exist. Great Leader Believe:- Being number one is easier than Remaining number one. You don t pay the price for success,
  • 16. You enjoy the price for success. Failure is success, If we learn from it. When a man has put a limit on what he will do, He has put a limit on what he can do. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistent. You ve got to give loyalty down, If you want loyalty up. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. I don t know the key to success, But the key to failure is trying to please everybody. The measure of power is honesty. Love truth but pardon errors. It s great to be grade, But it s greater to be Human. Vision is the art of seeing the invisible. Winning isn t everything it s the only thing. People ask you for criticism, But they only want praise. There are no winners on the survival. Don t compromise yourself, You are all you ve got. Success is the result of perfection, hard-work, Learning from failure, loyalty to choose for whom you work and persistence. Lose an hour is the morning and spend the rest of the day looking for it.
  • 17. The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be rained by praise than saved by criticism. Respect your work, It is the only way to achieve prosperity. The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, But in liking what one has to do. Don t go where the path may lead, Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. A successful people is one who lay a foundation With the bricks that other throws at him or her. A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; And optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. The most important thing in the communication is to hear what isn t being said. The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary. The road is to success is always under construction. Opportunity is mined by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

  • 51. 9. RECOMMANDATIONS 9.1 RECOMMENDATION (Retailers survey) The market coverage of Gits food product is quite good, but at the same time only retailers stock some selected products. Hence company should some steps to enhance the availability of the other product not stocked by the retailers. Advertisements are very effective in promoting the product, and also it is revealed that retailer is the most influential factor when customer chooses product. As far as Gits is concerned their advertisement is very poor. Emphasis should be given to advertisement and special consideration (schemes, discounts etc) to retailers. The price of Gits product is higher as compared to other brand. This indicates the competitive advantage of other brands and therefore should be taken in consideration. If certain cost is curtailed in packaging and incurred into advertisement or price product can be placed lower.
  • 52. 9.2 RECOMMENDATIONS (CONSUMERS SURVEY) Gits food products have quite high brand awareness, but at the same time sales are decreasing hence company should take some steps to enhance its sales. The attribute for products purchases are, product quality and taste. The quality of the product is quite good but at the same time its price was reported high when compared with other brands. So the company should try to maintain the competitive advantage of quality and take into consideration the local brands. All the respondents buy Gulab Jamun but at the same time other products have very low buying response from customers. The company should take steps to increase the sales of other products also. Direct to costumer service got a quite good response from consumers. So the company should think about the introduction about this concept. Gits has a very poor communication with its consumers, in order to overcome consumer complaints about the non promotion, and to stay ahead of competition and create loyal and growing customer base the following measure are recommended. ADVERTISING: Because of advertisings public nature, consumers find to view advertised products as more legitimate. PERSONAL SELLING: Presentation by the firm s sales for the purpose of making sales and building customer relationship. SALES RELATION: Short-term incentives to encourage the purchase or sale of a product or service e.g.; coupon s contests, cent- off debts premiums, trade show. PUBLIC RELATION: A well thought-out public relations campaign used with over promotion mixed elements can be very effective and economical. DIRECT MARKETING: Direct communication with carefully targeted individual consumers to obtained an immediate response, and cultivates customer s relationships.
