for HLL. Rest is contributed by retail outlets
Future of Ice Cream Market in India
Ice Cream market will expand with increase in number of malls - HUL has been increasing their ice
cream outlets - Swirl. Few years consumers use to go out for walk after dinner and use to buy ice
creams from hawkers. But now consumer who often visit malls for entertainment
prefer to buy ice creams during different times of the day as it is visible upfront and feel like
spending Rs. 50 for that tasty chocolate swirl with cake and nuts. As marketers are understanding the
different needs of consumers, be it health conscious people, kids, youngsters, young etc, and coming
up with products specific for them... with portfolio of flavors, consumer today has plethora of
options at hand to choose from and therefore high probability of buying one more scoop of ice
cream. Also with increasing wallet size and innovative modern retail formats, it has definately given
a philip to the ice cream industry in India.

INTRODUCTION OF VADILAL
The first ice-cream factory in the world was set up in the year 1851 by a vocational chief
named Jacob Fussily. The first hot Fudge Sundae was served at Browns in Hollywood.
Ice cream cone were an accidental innovation. During a St.Louis Exposition in 1904, when
an Ice cream vendor ran out of bowls, his pastry-maker neighbor rolled in it crisp wafer. They called
this ‘Cornupopias’, and people instantly took to it. The duo might have not imagined that they were
in fact pioneering a product sub-gern, thought.
In India, one of the earliest Ice cream related anecdotes goes thus: a traveler once presented
Emperor Amber crude of Ice cream (fruit juice sprinkled on Ice). The emperor liked it so much; he
ordered that he be served the same every morning.
It is said that gagantic blog of Ice had to be extricated from Kashmir and carted across the
land for over a month, to Delhi. By the time it reached Delhi, it would melt down to small cup-full,
and emperor could relish his cup of Ice Cream every morning.

HISTORY OF ORGANIZATION
Today, the name Vadilal conjures images of lip-smacking ice cream in a whole gamut of
flavours. Vadilal spells quality, availability, variety and state-of-the-art machinery and equipment. It
has, however, been a long journey for the group, which traces its origins way back to 1907, when a
certain unassuming gentleman, by the name of Vadilal Gandhi, the great-grand father of Virendra R
Gandhi, Rajesh R Gandhi and Devanshu L Gandhi, started a soda fountain. He passed on the
business to his son, Ranchod Lal, who ran a one-man show, and, with a hand cranked machine,
started a small retail outlet in 1926. Eventually, Ranchod Lal's sons, Ramchandra and Lakshman,
inherited the business and they were instrumental in giving a new direction to the company. The duo
imparted a new vision to the venture and infused a spirit of calculated risk-taking into the company.
As a result, by the 1970s, the Vadilal Company had already evolved into a modern corporate entity.
"In 1972-73, the company had 8-10 outlets in Ahmedabad. Gradually, we moved from the
city to other parts of Gujarat. By 1985, the company moved towards neighbouring states like
Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. But the expansion was undertaken very methodically and we spent
five to six years in spreading our business and then consolidating it" says Shri Ramchandrabhai
“To provide products and services at an affordable price without
compromising the quality,” says Shri Ramchandrabhai Gandhi
“To become an Indian MNC (Multi National Company) in frozen foods”.
