Some of the primeactivities of FMCG industry are selling, marketing, financing, purchasing, etc. Theindustry also engaged in operations, supply chain, production and generalmanagement.Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), are products that are sold quickly atrelatively lowcost. Though the absolute profit made on FMCG products is relatively small, theygenerallysell in large quantities, so the cumulative profit on such products can be large.Industry BackgroundFMCG is one of the most dynamic domains of the business world. A career in thissectorencompasses a large number of job roles like market research, pricing and productdevelopment, purchasing, advertising and brand awareness. FMCG is a sectorwheregraduates can gain excellent rewards if they work hard. FMCG products are thosethat move
off the shelves in retail outlets very quickly.In the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector, one needs to be fast intranslating theideas into new products. There is a requirement to create the products that peopletrust, enjoyand use in their daily lives. Advertising and marketing have a vital role to play inthis.Sector OutlookFMCG is the fourth largest sector in the Indian Economy with a total market sizeof Rs.60,000 crores. FMCG sector generates 5% of total factory employment in thecountry and iscreating employment for three million people, especially in small towns and ruralIndia.Offerings of FMCGFMCG Sector (In 2010)The FMCG sector in India is the fourth largest sector in the economy with a totalmarket sizein excess of US$ 13.1 billion. The volume of money circulated in the economyagainstFMCG products is very high, as the number of products the consumer use is veryhigh.The Indian FMCG market has been divided for a long time between the organizedsector andthe unorganized sector. While the latter has been crowded by a large number oflocal players,competing on margins, the former has varied between a two-player-scenario to amulti-playerone.Unlike the U.S. market for fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), which isdominated by ahandful of global players, Indias Rs.460 billion FMCG market remains highlyfragmentedwith roughly half the market going to unbranded, unpackaged home madeproducts. This
presents a tremendous opportunity for makers of branded products who canconvertconsumers to branded products.However, successfully launching and growing market share around a brandedproduct inIndia presents tremendous challenges. Take distribution as an example. India ishome to sixmillion retail outlets and super markets virtually do not exist. This makes logisticsparticularly for new players extremely difficult. Other challenges of similarmagnitude existacross the FMCG supply chain.Increased competition in the FMCG industryThe recent rise of private-label goods has led to increased competition within theFMCGindustry. A focus on bringing high volume products at lower prices to the markethas createdgreater demands on all actors. Producers must differentiate their products andquickly bringthem to market. Since products are consumed shortly after they are produced, it isimperativeto keep production uptime high at all times. Any stop in production can causeempty shelvesand lost market share. CRITICAL OPERATING RULES IN INDIAN FMCG SECTOR Heavy launch costs on new products launch on Advertisements, free samples and product promotion. Majority of the product classes require very low investment in fixed assets. Existence of contract manufacturing Marketing assumes a significant place in the brand building process. Providing good price points is the key to success.

Market OpportunitiesVast Rural Market----Rural India accounts for more than 700 Million consumers,or 70 percent of the Indian population and accounts for 50 per cent of the totalFMCG market.The working rural population is approximately 400 Millions. An average citizen inruralIndia has less then half of the purchasing power as compare to his urbancounterpart. Stillthere is an untapped market and most of the FMCG Companies are taking differentsteps tocapture rural market share. The market for FMCG products in rural India isestimated 52 percent and is projected to touch 60 per cent within a year. Eg. Hindustan UnileverLtd is thelargest player in the industry and has the widest market coverage.The following factors make India a competitive player in FMCG sector 1. Availability of raw materialsBecause of the diverse agro-climatic conditions in India, there is a large rawmaterial basesuitable for food processing industries. India is the largest producer of livestock,milk,sugarcane, coconut, spices and cashew and is the second largest producer of rice,wheat andfruits &vegetables. India also produces caustic soda and soda ash, which arerequired for theproduction of soaps and detergents. The availability of these raw materials givesIndia thelocation advantage.
2. Labor cost comparisonLow cost labor gives India a competitive advantage. Indias labor cost is amongstthe lowestin the world, after China & Indonesia. Low labor costs give the advantage of lowcost ofproduction. 3. Export - “Leveraging the Cost Advantage”Cheap labor and quality product & services have helped India to represent as a costadvantage over other Countries. Even the Government has offered zero importduty on capital
goods and raw material for 100% export oriented units. Multi National Companiesoutsourceits product requirements from its Indian company to have a cost advantage.India is the largest producer of livestock, milk, sugarcane, coconut, spices andcashew apartfrom being the second largest producer of rice, wheat, fruits & vegetables.

Weown andoperate four vegetable oil refining facilities – three are located on east and westcoast ports ofIndia, the other is located in western India. Refined Oils India markets a range ofrefinedsunflower, soy, palm, olein and ground nut oils, hydrogenated fats and bakeryshortenings

This has led to a very clean and hygienicenvironment and a b etter and safer product.Cooking oils in IndiaAn oilseed in India account for around 5.0 % of the Gross National Product (GNP)and 14%
of the country’s area is under cultivation of crops. Castor, Groundnut, Linseed,Niger,Rapeseed, Mustard, Sunflower etc. are some of the major oilseeds grown. India isone of thelargest producers of oilseeds in the world which accounts for 9.3% of worldoilseedsproduction. This sector occupies an important position in the agricultural economyhavingthe world’s fourth largest edible oil economy and accounting for the estimatedproduction of30.21 million tones of nine cultivated oilseeds during the year 2009-10. Indiaaccounted forabout 6.4% of worlds oil meal export. Yet, about 43% of edible oil available inIndia isimported.Source- Production of oilseeds: Ministry of Agriculture.Types of oils commonly used in IndiaIndia is fortunate in having wide range of oilseeds crops grown in its different agroclimatic zones. Groundnut, mustard/ rapeseed, sesame, safflower, linseed,nigerseed/ castor are the major traditionally cultivated oilseeds. Soyabean andsunflower have also assumed importance in recent years. Coconut is mostimportant amongst the plantation crops. Efforts are being made to grow oil palm inAndhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, in addition to Kerala and Andaman &Nicobar Islands. In addition, oilseeds of tree and forest origin, which grow mostlyin tribal inhabited areas, are also a significant source of oils.Consumption pattern of Edible oils in IndiaEdible Oils and Fats is a 15mn tonnes industry in India annually (worth Rs.75,000crore). 90% of the industry is comprised of cooking oil and 10% is vanaspati (fat).The difference between oil and fat is that oil is liquid at room temperature and fatis solid. The total industry is growing at 5-10% p.a. but vanaspati segment ismarginally degrowing. In cooking oils, the growth is coming from branded oils(packaged not loose). This sub-segment is growing at 11-15% p.a.
India is a vast country and inhabitants of several of its regions have developedspecific preference for certain oils largely depending upon the oils available in theregion. People in the South and West prefer groundnut oil while those in the Eastand North use mustard/ rapeseed oil. Likewise several pockets in the South have apreference for coconut and sesame oil. Inhabitants of northern plain are basicallyhard fat consumers and therefore, prefer vanaspati, a term used to denote a partiallyhydrogenated edible oil mixture.Vanaspati has an important role in our edible oil economy. Its production is about1.2 million tones annually. It has around 10% share of the edible oil market. It hasthe ability to absorb a heterogeneous variety of oils, which do not generally finddirect marketing opportunities because of consumer’s preference for traditional oilssuch as groundnut oil. Mustard oil, sesame oil etc. For example, newer oils likesoyabean, sunflower, ricebran and cottonseed and oils from oilseeds of tree andforest origin had found their way to the edible pool largely through vanaspati route.The demand for edible oils in India has shown a steady growth at a CAGR of4.43% over the period from 2001 to 2011. The growth has been driven byimprovement in per capita consumption, which in turn is attributable to risingincome levels and living standards. However, the current per capita consumptionlevels of India (at 13.3 Kg/year for 2009-10) are lower than global averages (24kg/year).The Indian edible oils market continues to be underpenetrated and giventhe positive macro and demographic fundamentals it has a favourable demandgrowth outlook over the medium-to-long term.In terms of volumes, palm oil, soyabean oil and mustard oil are the three largestconsumed edible oils in India, with respective shares of 46%, 16% and 14% intotal oil consumption in 2010. Given the high price consciousness and varied tastepreferences of Indian consumers, ICRA expects these three oils to continue toaccount for the bulk of edible oil consumption in the country.Market share of edible oils in India PercentageOilPalm oil 38Peanut 14Sunflower 8

Through a series of well-executed roadshows, uptake of the products was rapid. Today, the facility is focusing on its nextfeed offering in the south with Aqua Focus™, a line of fish feeds targeted for thedomestic production of Indian carps such as Rohu, Catla and Mrigal. Five monthtrials of the product is proving to be a hit with local farmers as feed conversionrates (FCR) of 1:5kg of traditional feed has dramatically been reduced to below2kg.Cargill Animal Nutrition - Rajpura started operations by offering dairy feed. Afterseveral in-depth studies of the local dairy cattle scene conducted by Cargill Animal
Nutritions dairy technology deployment managers from Italy, Korea and the US,the feed was launched with much enthusiasm in Ludhiana, Punjab.

The packaged edible oilconsumption is only about 20% of the total 12.5 million tonne domesticconsumption.Due to advancement of packaging technology, the price difference betweenpackaged and loosely sold oils has significantly come down.Cargill controls more than 12% of the packaged edible oil market. As a result ofthe increase in health consciousness, consumers even in the smaller towns aregradually shifting to packaged edible oils from loosely sold oils.The packaged edible oil industry is growing at 10 % annually and half of themarket would be controlled by packaged oil manufactures within few years.
Cargill brands vs. other brandsWith the competition increasing after the arrival of retail companies, maintainingquality while keeping the prices down would be a challenged for all the packagedoil makers.M Cargill India sell around 5,00,000 tons of edible oil a year , including soya ,palm ,sunflower , groundnut and mustard oils besides hydrogenated fats , to wholesaletrade , process food industry and retail customers. Its share is around 4% of themillion tones of total edible oil sold in the country in a year.Other brands like Fortune of Adani wilmer Ltd. Having approximately 19% marketshare in the entire edible oil market. Marico industries with a market share of 11%with brands like Saffola are old players with well known brands in the edible oilindustry hence gives tough competition to Cargill refined oils.Consumer Voice – A monthly magazine of consumer interestA government funded voluntary organization that works towards consumereducation andawareness, conducted a laboratory test on seven well-known brands of refinedsunflower oil.After testing them on all possible parameters like colour, adulteration, rancidityand fattyacid profile, Naturefresh Acti-Lite and Gemini, brands from the house of Cargill,were ratedas the best quality and healthiest refined sunflower oils in the country.For the firsttime in India, refined sunflower oil brands have been tested by an independentgovernment funded organization for their fatty acid profile and other parameterslike colour, rancidity etc. This was done and published in November 2008 toscientifically assess and pinpoint exactly how healthy each refined oil brand is.By this research, NatureFresh and Gemini cooking oils have been proved to be thehealthiestcooking oils in their respective categories.NatureFresh Acti-Lite sunflower oil is extremely light oil that has high-unsaturatedfat content making it easier to break down. This lightness is powered by “LitenessIntegrated
Technology” (LITE), which is delivered by the technologically advanced state-ofthe-artplant ensuring that best attributes of the oil are preserved for `consumer’s health.Geminirefined oil offers freshness as a differentiator. It uses “Freshness IntactTechnology” (FIT)which helps maintain the freshness of oil from packaging stage of consumption.SWOT Analysis of Cargill FoodsStrengths: The quality of our various products is the biggest strength of the company. In terms of quality, every product has maintained its standard quality through which it excels in the market. Dedicated hard working& highly efficient team is the backbone to the company. Deeply rooted supply chain. We got effective supply chain to reach even small markets & to target even niches.Weakness: Our whole range of products is not available across various stores Late execution of promises made under various schemes & benefiting programs Less awareness of our product quality & our unique selling point (USP) of 5 litre fat free in a year concept among masses.Opportunity: Rising oil consumption of people as per gram consumption per person rises from 27 to 38 in developing countries like India. Majority of our huge population is consuming low quality oil. As resultant of rising disposable income people are becoming more health & quality consciousThreats: Low priced or local oils are focusing small regional areas or niches Competitors are coming up with different categories of oil to capture wider segment of market.OBJECTIVE OF STUDYPrimary Research Project :

Profiling of each micro segment of FFS. Arriving at a volume potential of different types of edible oils. Refined – Non Refined Sunflower, Soya, Palm oil, Vanaspati, Desi Ghee.Utility of the projectDevising Sales Strategies and Market Strategies for Fragmented Food Servicechannel in UP.Scope & Limitations Of The StudyIt is a hard fact that each study suffer from some limitations. So is the case withthis study. One of the limitations of the study is, as the information is collectedfrom the Fragmented Food Outlets like Halwai, Restaurant, Caterer, Hotel, Bakery,the monthly Consumption figure given by them is based entirely on their ownjudgment. So a few of them might have given the wrong figures related to theirmonthly sales. Another limitation was that some of the retailers were busy andcould not give appropriate information. And also very few retailers did not want toshare any information.Another limitation of the study was the customers who were personallyinterviewed did not want to share the actual data asfew of them were giving fakedataResearch Design:-is conceptual structure within which research is conducted. It constitutes the blueprint of collection, measurement and analysis of data .Research Design is neededbecause it facilitates the smooth sailing of various research operations, therebymaking research as efficient as possible yielding maximum information withminimum time, effort and money. Research Design stands for advance planning of
methods to be used for collecting relevant data and techniques to be used in theanalysis .The design helps researcher to organize his ideas whereby it will bepossible for him to look for flaws andinadequacies.Method of data collection: - for collecting data and the accuracy of facts,complete enumeration was used. for collecting the data our team had went to eachFragmented Food Outlets in all the four cities .Data Analysis: - For the data analysis to know the market share of variousSoyabean and Vanaspati brands computer programme called Microsoft Excel wasused, with the help of Microsoft Excel, I came to to know the quantity andpercentage share of each brands . On the basis of the quantity sold per month, Icould collect the market share of each brand.Sample size: - sample size is 1800 Food Service Outlets.Sources of primary and secondary data:The major aim of the project was to analyze the competition in occupyingmarket shares of various soyabean oil brands. Therefore I had to getconsiderable information about the competing brands. For this I had to gothrough a lot of secondary data.A lot of issues of Business Today ,Economic Times were consulted.The reasons behind selecting direct survey were as follows:- Provide large and faster coverage. Low cost involved. One to one interaction with the customer Data easier to compile and categorize. Analysis done on the basis of the listed questionQuestionnaireThis method of data collection is quite popular particularly in Case of big enquires.It isbeing adapted by private and public organizations and even by Government. In thismethod aquestionnaire is given to the person concerned to answer the questions. Aquestionnaireconsists of a number of questions printed in a definite order on a form or a set offorms; the
respondents have to answer the questions on their own. To be successful thequestionnaireshould be comparatively short and simple.Questions should proceed in logical sequence moving from easy to more difficultquestions.Personal and intimate questions should be left to the end. Technical terms andvagueexpression capable of different interpretation should be avoided in a questionnaire.Questions may be dichotomous (Yes or No answer) multiple choices or openended .Inmaking research carefully chosen questions and their forms working and sequenceisimportant. By considering all the facts the Questionnaire was designed. This is atype ofstructured questionnaire.The questionnaire method offers various advantages such as:- It is cheaper and faster method of primary data collection. Since all the questions are formulated in advance all the required information can beobtained in an orderly and systematic manner It offers maximum control over the interviewing process.

.Suggestions For Increasing Market Share in FFS Outlets:1)There must be regular surprise visit of higher officials to check the ground realities in themarket.2) There should be separate person in the market whose only job must be merchandising. Hemust make sure the product is visible in the outlet and postors and danglers are properly pastedand attached at a proper place.3) There should be proper feedback for the retailers AS WELL AS customers whenever anyscheme is introduced for the retailers & customers they should be made aware of it. Salesrepresentatives should be given guidelines to intimate each and every retailer of his area aboutthe schemes.4) Being all the companies are ISO 9001 company, it is not good for the reputation company thatit is getting complaints about the products related to quality. More emphasis should be laid onthe quality to avert such circumstances.5) Regarding the introduction of new products, the company should go for aggressive marketing.There is a lot of potential in Soya Refined oil segment, but retailers and Fragmented FoodService Outlets are not even aware of our product.6) Whenever any consumer oriented scheme is introduced, the scheme should be directlytargeted to that person who actually uses i.e., Fragmented Food Outlets .9) Non monetary incentives should be also given to the retailers in each and every city. Theyshould be given glow sign boards and other sales promotional materials. This will boost up theirspirits.10) MRP problem during the days of rising prices should be taken care. In this situation ifretailers are getting the products on a price higher than the MRP they can’t sell it more than theMRP. So this problem should be looked after carefully.11)The halwai segment is such,that they do not understand the jargons & quality issues,theywould say that their existing oil is efficient enough for them to make their sweets likeable forcustomers.but regular contact might initiate an impact so that atleast they can try the same oilonce.12) First impression created by the company rep is very important,they should provide suchdeals that brings an interest in the mind of the shopkeeper and he might listen to the wholeconversation with interest..instead of taking it casually..once he gives the order,he should betrappped for ever.
13) The problem of irreguler stocks was founded out.it should be improved as much aspossible.it just takes a single second for a brand switch in the case of oil.14) Its also observed that the shopkeepers are not loyal customers to a particular brand ofoil..they can be easily captured with a good deal only.15) In the hotel segment,the oil consumption is huge,many hotels use Fortune as they are notgetting nature fresh from Dealers .16)We can demonstrate that nature fresh is not costlier than other brand bcoz it consume less oilin frying any stuff and it will give a good texture to the stuff.17) Commission to distributor and retailer should be high than what competitor is giving so thatthey can push more Nature Fresh in the market .18) Product Bundling: To make people aware about other not so popular oil of Nature Fresh ,Gemini.we can do- Joint bundling – 2 products offered for one bundled price. Leader bundling – a leader product like Soyabean oil is offered for discount if purchased with a non leader product. The Company should also introduce new affordable products for lower segment group.
LearningManagerial capabilities as we had to manage the salesman who accompanied us as wellas the shop owners.Convincing capabilities.Knowledge of how an FMCG company works at the ground level.How sales can be enhanced.Team management skills.Leadership skills.Analytical approach towards data analysis regarding sales.How to cover an untapped market where complete reach was not there previously.How to carry out the daily operations in rigorous pressure.How to increase product visibility.
Limitations Of Project1. Low Print & Media advertisements made us difficult to convince Food Outlets to use/buy our product.2. General awareness of the product and company was low.3. No proper Distribution Channel made company product sell less in market.4. Convincing to the Halwai Segment and other low income Food Outlets was a tough task as they were very less health conscious.5. Excessive dependence on price strategy of competitor market leader in oil segment.
CONCLUSIONSThe edible oil industry is significantly based on the satisfaction of consumer regular taste andproduct awareness. These are the products which customer does not change in very short span oftime. People generally using this product rarely experiment on other brand. If a customer is usingnature fresh for a long time they will rarely try for some other oil until and unless there is regularcomplain or some other reasonable problem.So few things regarding oil that should be kept in minda) It takes time to reach up to the tongue of the customer.b) Once reached it takes twice, thrice or more time to change the brandc) It is important for a company to grab customer’s share of mind by increasing awareness of theproduct in the marketQuality wise Nature fresh is very good in the market but its facing tough competition from localplayers so we have to focus on second stage that is making people aware of our productsthrough Advertisements, promotional activity. FMCG being one of the fastest moving industries,company has to create right kind of brand and product awareness, so that people can have theproduct knowledge and choose the product according to their suitability, be competitive in theprices and the quality standards. The company should present the products in such a manner sothat it can motivate the consumers and generate the thirst in consumer to consummate it.Company needs to put little more efforts to spread the awareness of the quality of oil productsand to make customers understand how non-quality oil products can harm a human life. Thecompany can also give some attractive schemes, rebates to the customers from time to time toget an edge on the competitors. Product availability should also be increased in the market byincreasing the number of distributors and an efficient distribution network Market of edible oils in India is captured by various companies and their brand products arewell known across the country. Hence to stand out as a different brand name in the market,Cargill should adopt a good marketing strategy of brand building through various penetrationlevels in the market, increase its product availability and working on the customer relationshipmanagement
