And then at last I worked with questionnaire a sample size of 100 respondents was taken for the study whose responses were studied and interpreted .The sampling design was used convenience sampling. The process of analysis was done through excel work sheets. During the preparation of questionnaire I faced difficulties regarding the selection of questions and in collection of the data I found some difficulties like the customers had no time to give. There is one thing that I have found that the peoples working at AMUL are very much helpful in all areas. Every time they come to me and told me that they are available at any time for me for anything, which really boost me and motivates me towards my goal and objectives. The culture of AMUL is very much friendly. I completed my project on 20 August & during the project I have achieved my all objectives of my project.

  13. 13. 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 What is Market ? Usually, Market means a place where buyer and seller meets together in order to carry on transactions of goods and services. But in Economics, it may be a place, perhaps may not be. In Economics, market can exist even without direct contact of buyer and seller. This fact can be explained with the help of the following statement. Marketing Strategy Marketing Strategy is defined by David Aaker as a process that can allow an organization to concentrate its resources on the optimal opportunities with the goals of increasing sales and achieving a sustainable competitive advantage. Marketing strategy includes all basic and long-term activities in the field of marketing that deal with the analysis of the strategic initial situation of a company and the formulation, evaluation and selection of market-oriented strategies and therefore contribute to the goals of the company and its marketing objectives.
  14. 14. 2 1.2 Amul - Evolution of Marketing Strategy Amul is the largest co-operative movement in India and as the country's largest food company, is the market leader in butter, whole milk, cheese, ice cream, dairy whitener, condensed milk, saturated fats and long life milk. Amul follows a unique business model, which aims at providing 'value for money' products to its consumers, while protecting the interests of the milk-producing farmers who are its suppliers as well as its owners. In butter, cheese and saturated fats, Amul has remained the undisputed market leader since its inception in 1955, by offering quality products at competitive prices. In other categories, Amul has nullified its late mover disadvantage through aggressive pricing, better quality, innovative promotion, and superior distribution.
  16. 16. 4 2.1 COMPANY HISTORY In the year 1946 the first milk union was established. This union was started with 250 liters of milk per day. In the year 1955 AMUL was established. In the year 1946 the union was known as KAIRA DISTRICT CO-OPERATIVE MILK PRODUCERS’ UNION. This union selected the brand name AMUL in 1955. The brand name Amul means “AMULYA”. This word derived form the Sanskrit word “AMULYA” which means “priceless”. A quality control expert in Anand had suggested the brand name “AMUL”. Amul products have been in use in millions of homes since 1946. Amul Butter, Amul Milk Powder, Amul Ghee, Amulspray, Amul Cheese, Amul Chocolates, Amul Shrikhand, Amul Ice cream, Nutramul, Amul Milk and Amulya have made Amul a leading food brand in India. (The total sale is Rs. 6 billion in 2005). Today Amul is a symbol of many things like of the high-quality products sold at reasonable prices, of the genesis of a vast co-operative network, of the triumph of indigenous technology, of the marketing savvy of a farmers' organization. And have a proven model for dairy development (Generally known as “ANAND PATTERN”). In the early 40’s, the main sources of earning for the farmers of Kaira district were farming and selling of milk. That time there was high demand for milk in Bombay. The main supplier of the milk was Polson dairy limited, which was a privately owned company and held monopoly over the supply of milk at Bombay from the Kaira district. This system leads to exploitation of poor and illiterates’ farmers by the private traders. The traders used to beside the prices of milk and the farmers were forced to accept it without uttering a single word. However, when the exploitation became intolerable, the farmers were frustrated. They collectively appealed to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was a leading activist in the freedom movement. Sardar Patel advised the farmers to sell the milk on their own by establishing a co-operative union, Instead of supplying milk to private traders. Sardar Patel sent the farmers to Shri Morarji Desai in order to gain his co-operation and help. Shri Desai held a meeting at Samarkha
  17. 17. 5 village near Anand, on 4th January 1946. He advised the farmers to form a society for collection of the milk. These village societies would collect the milk themselves and would decide the prices at which they can sell the milk. The district union was also form to collect the milk from such village co-operative societies and to sell them. It was also resolved that the Government should be asked to buy milk from the union. However, the govt. did not seem to help farmers by any means. It gave the negative response by turning down the demand for the milk. To respond to this action of govt., the farmers of Kaira district went on a milk strike. For 15 whole days not a single drop of milk was sold to the traders. As a result the Bombay milk scheme was severely affected. The milk commissioner of Bombay then visited Anand to assess the situation. Having seemed the condition, he decided to fulfill the farmers demand. Thus their cooperative unions were forced at the village and district level to collect and sell milk on a cooperative basis, without the intervention of
  18. 18. Government. Mr. Verghese Kurien showed main interest in establishing union 6 who was supported by Shri Tribhuvandas Patel who lead the farmers in forming the Cooperative unions at the village level. The Kaira district milk producers union was thus established in ANAND and was registered formally on 14th December 1946. Since farmers sold all the milk in Anand through a co-operative union, it was commonly resolved to sell the milk under the brand name AMUL.
  19. 19. Moreover the Amul union has achieved the prestigious ISO 9001-2000 and HACCP Certificate and effects are got to obtain ISO 14000.
  20. 20. 7 At the initial stage only 250 liters of milk was collected everyday. But with the growing awareness of the benefits of the cooperativeness, the collection of milk increased. Today Amul collect 11 lakhs liters of milk everyday. Since milk was a perishable commodity it becomes difficult to preserve milk flora longer period. Besides when the milk was to be collected from the far places, there was a fear of spoiling of milk. To overcome this problem the union thought out to develop the chilling unit at various junctions, which would collect the milk and could chill it, so as to preserve it for a longer period. Thus, today Amul has more than 150 chilling centers in various villages. Milk is collected from almost 1073 societies. With the financial help from UNICEF, assistance from the govt. of New Zealand under the Colombo plan, of Rs. 50 millions for factory to manufacture milk powder and butter was planned. Dr.Rajendra Prasad, the president of India laid the foundation on November 15, 1954. Shri Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the prime minister of India declared it open at Amul dairy on November 20, 1955.
  21. 21. 8 PEOPLE POWER: Amul's secret of success The system succeeded mainly because it provides an assured market at remunerative prices for producers' milk besides acting as a channel to market the production enhancement package. What's more, it does not disturb the agrosystem of the farmers. It also enables the consumer an access to high quality milk and milk products. Contrary to the traditional system, when the profit of the business was cornered by the middlemen, the system ensured that the profit goes to the participants for their socio-economic upliftment and common good.Looking back on the path traversed by Amul; the following features make it a pattern and model for emulation elsewhere. AMUL HAS BEEN ABLE TO: Produce an appropriate blend of the policy makers farmers board of management and the professionals: each group appreciating its rotes and limitations, Bring at the command of the rural milk producers the best of the technology and harness its fruit for betterment. Provide a support system to the milk producers without disturbing their agroeconomic systems, Plough back the profits, by prudent use of men, material and machines, in the rural sector for the common good and betterment of the member producers Even though, growing with time and on scale, it has remained with the smallest producer members. In that sense. Amul is an example par excellence, of an intervention for rural change.

  39. 39. 25 2.14 TASTE OF COMPETITION • BNZFL is a joint venture between Britannia Industries Ltd. and the Fonterra Cooperative Group, New Zealand, a dairy cooperative group. • The company focuses entirely on the dairy business, with cheese being its flagship product. The other products it sells are dairy whiteners, butter, ghee (Indian clarified butter) and a malt drink- Anlene. All products are marketed under the 'Britannia MilkMan' brand. • Its turnover in 2005-2006 is US$ 24 million with about 50% coming from processed cheese, 30% from the dairy whitener and the remaining 20% from butter and ghee sales.
  40. 40. 26 • BNZF only sells in the processed cheese segment and has five variations of processed cheese in the market, besides a cheese dip product. Over half of the company's revenues come form the processed cheese segment. • BNZF cheese is priced at a premium in the market, one reason being that the cheese is sourced from cow's milk (unlike Amul that sources its cheese from buffalo milk). • Cheese products: Cheese cubes, Cheese singles (regular and Slim variants), Britannia Milkman Malai Chaska- a soft, fresh and creamy ‘dairy spread,’ which has a mild, tangy taste, Britannia cheese spread in different flavors like Masala Herbs, Spicy Cilantro, Peppy Pepper etc., and Pizza cheese.

  42. 42. 28 • Besides focusing on competitive pricing, BNZF has adopted a three-pronged strategy of freshness (lower pipeline stock), availability (improve distribution network) and visibility (more shelf space at modern trade). • It recently entered some fresh milk markets, such as Delhi and Kolkata, where GCMMF does not have a presence. It is concentrating on just 30 cities, and that too through select class A & B outlets, for butter and cheese. It is not playing the national game with GCMMF. • Being No 2in the butter and cheese market afterAmul which holds more than 86% (combined butter & cheese market) it should be following Offense strategy by attacking the strengths of Amul cheese market.
  43. 43. 29 • Nestlé India is a subsidiary of Nestle S.A., world's biggest food company and a leading Swiss giant. • Nestle India's business can be broadly classified into four categories ---milk products and nutrition (infant mixes, yoghurt, milk), prepared dishes and cooking aids, beverages (coffee and malted drinks) and chocolate and confectionary. • Company has a wide presence across India with its portfolio of strong brands Nescafe,mggi,Milkybar,Milo,KitKat,Barone,Polo,Munch,Milkmade,Nestea, Nestle Milk, Nestle Fresh 'n' Natural Dahi and NESTLE Jeera Raita The company is focused on growing its market share through renovation and innovation of its existing brands in India.

  48. 48. 34 • Since 1965 Cadbury has pioneered the development of cocoa cultivation which gives it a strong unbending foundation in chocolates segment in India. • Being the market leader it follows the Defense strategy. • It re-launched three brands: 5 Star, Gems, and Bournvita recently. It is looking at its strategy afresh to gain a toehold in the sugar confectionery market, and to reduce its traditional dependence on chocolates.

  66. 66. 52 3.9 MARKETING RESEARCH Marketing research plays an important role in the process of marketing. Starting with market component of the total marketing talks. It helps the firm to acquire a better understanding of the consumers, the competition and the marketing environment. DEFINITION “Marketing research is a systematic gathering, recording and analysis marketing problem to facilitate decision making.” - Coundiff & Still. “Marketing research is a systematic problem analysis, model building and fact finding for the purpose of important decision making and control in the marketing of goods and services. - Phillip Kotler. 3.10 MAIN STEPS INVOLVED IN MARKETING RESEARCH Defining the Marketing Problem to be tackled and identifying the market research problem involved in the task. 1. Define the problem and its objectives. 2. Identify the problem. 3. Determine the information needed. 4. Determine the sources of information. 5. Decide research methods. 6. Tabulate, Analyze and interpret the data. 7. Prepare research report. 8. Follow-up the study.
  67. 67. 53 1. Define the Problem and its Objectives : This includes an effective job in planning and designing a research project that will provide the needed information. It also includes the establishment of a general framework of major marketing elements such as the industry elements, competitive elements, marketing elements and company elements. 2. Identify the Problem : Identifying the problem involves getting acquainted with the company, its business, its products and market environment, advertising by means of library consultation and extensive interviewing of company’s officials. 3. Determining the Specific Information Needed : In general the producer, the manufacturer, the wholesaler and the retailer try to find out four things namely :(1) What to sell (2) When to sell (3) Where to sell 4. Determine the sources of Information : Primary Data : Primary datas are those which are gathered specially for the project at hand, directly – e.g. through questionnaires & interviews. Primary data sources include company salesman, middleman, consumers, buyers, trade association’s executives & other businessman & even competitors. Secondary Data : These are generally published sources, which have been collected originally for some other purpose. Source are internal company records, government publication, reports & publication, reports & journals, trade, professional and business associations publications & reports.
  68. 68. 54 5. Decide Research Methods for Collecting Data: If it is found that the secondary data cannot be of much use, collection of primary data become necessary. Three widely used methods of gathering primary data are :A) Survey B) Observation C) Experimentation A) Survey Method : In this method, information gathered directly from individual respondents, either through personal interviews or through mail questionnaires or telephone interviews. B) Observation Method: The research data are gathered through observing and recording their actions in a marketing situation. This technique is highly accurate. It is rather an expensive technique. C) Experimental Method: This method involves carrying out a small scale trial solution to a problem, while at the same time, attempting to control all factors relevant to the problem. The main assumption here is that the test conditions are essentially the same as those that will be encountered later when conclusions derived from the experiment are applied to a broader marketing area. D) The Panel Research: In this technique the same group of respondents is contacted for more then one occasion; and the information obtained to find out if there has been any in their taste demand or they want any special quality, color, size, packing in the product. 1) Preparation of questionnaire 2) Presetting of questionnaire 3) Planning of the sample
  69. 69. 55 6. Tabulate, Analysis and Interpret the Data: The report must give/contain the following information:a) The title of research b) The name of the organization for which it has been Conducted c) The objectives of research d) The methodology used e) Organization and the planning of the report f) A table of contents along with charts and diagrams used in the reports g) The main report containing the findings h) Conclusion arrived at end recommendations suggested i) Appendices (containing questionnaire / forms used sample design, instructions.) 7. Follow-up the Study :The researchers, in the last stage, should follow up this study to find if his recommendation are being implemented and if not, why

  89. 89. 74 5.1 FINDINGS First I would like to present my survey findings. The main findings of my survey are as follows: 1. Lack of Awareness in consumers. Many people are not know about Amul Mithaimate specially house wife’s. 2. Mainly customer purchases the product from the retailer. 3. As I found that the main product of Amul is Milk and company firstly wants to capture maximum market share in milk market which is approx. 66%, after it Amul is concentrating upon butter & cheese which has market share of approx. 88%, so it is not concentrating upon Mithaimate.. 4. There is lack of Sales Promotional Activities i.e. free tattoo, extra weight, toys, quiz contest etc. 5. I find the main thing is that “Amul” brand name has very good image in consumer’s mind and they consider it as Pure & Good Product. 6. People who have tasted Amul mithaimate are not ready to purchase the same again 7. Generally, I found that most of the customers used to Nestle milkmaid as compare Amul mithaimate. 8. It is findings in the survey that females are the main decision maker for the mithaimate. And milkmaid As per the data, 65% of female and 35% of male makes purchase decision. 9. Based on the occupation of the customer, it is found in the survey that 65% are the housewives and 35% are from various occupations such as a businessman, employee etc for the AMUL MITHAIMATE And NESTLE MILKMAID. 10. Incomes less than 5000 to 10000 are more attracted to Amul mithaimate And Nestle milkmaid As per the data, 79% of the respondents’ income is under this group. 11. Nestle is main competitor and strategically better performer than Amul. 12. And in a market there are lots of complain against Amul for supply the products at a time. 13. Lack of knowledge about Amul Products, specially Amul Mithaimate. 14. 35% likes Amul Mithaimate an 65% nestle Milkmaid. That means nestle milkmaid provide a better services than Amul mithaimate.
  90. 90. 75 5.2 SUGGESTIONS 1. Since Amul is having loyal customers and therefore should concentrate more on this factor through various potential programmes such as campaign, premium packs, offers etc., this helps to increase the loyalty towards the Amul products. 2. First and foremost Amul should take proper action in order to improve service, because although being on a top slot in Butter and milk supplies it does not get the sales in mithaimate, which it should get. 3. Company should use brand ambassador which attracts each age segment i.e. Enrique Iglesias, Shahrukh Khan, Shakira, Amitabh Bacchan, Superman, Krrish, etc. 4. Amul should give local advertisements apart from the advertisements given at the national level. Local advertisement must mention the exclusive Amul shops of the city. 5. Try and change the perception of the people through word of mouth about Amul in advertisements, because they are the best source to reach Children and families. 6. Company should introduce sales promotion schemes like free weight, pranky, tattoo, contest, free gifts etc. 7. Company should provide a better services. 8. Company Should make a strong relationship between consumer and retailer.
  91. 91. 76 5.3 LEARNINGS It was a great opportunity to carry a research project on such a reputed organization which gave me a good learning experience and knowledge about the products and industry. Another very crucial area that needs mention is the experience I gained while talking to and interacting with people. This has been a truly enriching experience because interacting with people with varied profile helped in enriching my communication skills
  92. 92. 77 5.4 CONCLUSION • AMUL will be an outstanding marketing organization, with specialization in marketing of food and dairy products, both fresh and long life with customer focus and information technology integration. • AMUL shall also create a market for its products in the neighboring countries. • AMUL has been satisfying the customers on a large scale which ensures its success in the future. • In BILASPUR AMUL is found to be a highly preferred brand for dairy products. • In BILASPUR city, the customers of Amul seem highly satisfied, as it boasts of superior quality of products at affordable prices. • In BILASPUR, Amul does not have competition from International competitors, as many products of those brands are not available here. • BILASPUR could be a great market for Amul, if it improves its Supply Chain Management. • For market growth of Amul Mithaimte company should have to provide a better services than other competitors like Nestle. • As we know that Amul is very big organization and market leader in dairy products.
