In 1929 a small company by the name of Parle products emerged in British dominated India. The
goal was to spread joy and cheer to children and adults alike, all over the country with its sweets
and candies. Although, the company knew that it wouldn’t be an easy task, they decided to take
the brave step. A small factory was set up in the suburbs of Mumbai to manufacture
confectionery products. A decade later this factory was upgraded to manufacture biscuits as well.
Since then, the Parle name has spread in all directions and has won international fame. Parle has
been sweetening the lives of people all over India and abroad.

4) Augmented product- parle biscuits increase a person’s energy levels. This is not always

Classification of products
1) Based on tangibility- Parle biscuits are tangible, i.e. one can see and touch them.2) Based on
functional life- Parle biscuits are consumables since biscuits form apart of food and have a short
life.3) Based on price and quality- most of Parle biscuits such as Parle-G, Monaco,Krackjack are
mass products but a few Parle biscuits such as Parle hide and seekand Milano are premium or
prestige products.4) Based on utility- Parle biscuits are convenience goods. They are staples
sincethey are bought by consumers regularly. Also they are partly impulse products
Keeping all this in mind, the factors influencing the buying behavior of consumersare:Parle-G
being a consumable product is not influenced by factors like cultura l factors. As shown above,
social factors are further sub divided into 3 parts namelyreference groups, family & social role &
status.1) Reference GroupPeople, especially kids are always influenced by the people around
them. They are influenced by friends, relatives, family members specially elder siblings,etc. so if
they see anyone around them having parle-G biscuit, they too want to eatit.2) FamilyIn his case
also, if it’s a usual habit of the family members to have pale-G with tea or coffee, the kids in the
growing stage or any new member joining thefamily for tea will form a similar habit or the later
will be offered the same biscuit.
The factors whose intensity differs from person to person are together termed aspersonal factors.
They are as follows: -1 ) A g e Parle-g is consumed maximum by the kids in the age group
of 5-10 years i.e.the growing age group. Kids, who have formed the habit of having Parle-G
intheir early stages of life, continue this practice even after growing up. Theycontinue their
consumption of Parle-G even after they grow up.2 )O c c up a t io n The buying behavior of the
consumer is influenced also by the occupation heor she belongs to. In case of Parle-G, the
purpose for buying the product variesfrom a person with a high post in a M.N.C. to a poor
laborer. For the executiveemployee, he may or may not buy the product. He may buy a more
expensive oran imported biscuit brand because he can afford it. Also he may buy it only to beone
of the many snacks available to him. On the other hand, a poor laborer would buy a packet of
Parle-G simply to satisfy his hunger. For him, it is notmatter of choice or luxury, but a necessity
because it’s the easiest & thecheapest he can get.3 ) I n c o m e Income of a person decides its
core expenditure segment. If a laborer earns afixed amount & if a biscuit like parle-g which for
sure ensures high level glucosecontent & immediate energy regained, he would defiantly opt to
buy a parlebiscuit packet & not spend even that minimal amount of Rs.4 on anything else.But
since Parle-G is a low-priced, value for money product a person’s incomedoes not really play a
role in influencing the purchase of the product.Consumers of all income groups do buy the
product.Psychological Factors1 ) M o t i v a t i o n For Parle-G the main & the basic motivation
which pulls consumers towardsbuying it is simply hunger. This is what pulls the consumers
towards the purchase of Parle-G. Also, since biscuits are perceived as snacks, when aconsumer is
drinking tea he or she is motivated to buy Parle-G at that time.2)Perception- consumers believe
Parle-G to be a good quality product which ischeap too. They also perceive it to be a great snack
For Parle hide & seek:
Social factors1) Reference groups- parle hide & seek is targeted at the youth. So for this
productconsumers are influenced by their friends and siblings.2) Status- Parle hide & seek is a
high priced product. So consumers in the higher income groups would prefer to buy the product
over other brands since it would bea matter of higher status.Personal factors1) Age- the
advertisements of this product are such that people in the age groupfrom 15 to 28 are likely to be
influenced to buy this product. But at the same time,since this product has been endorsed by a
celebrity (HrithikRoshan) and since it ismade of chocolate chips, children are also likely to be
major consumers.2) Occupation- Major Consumers for Parle hide & seek are students.3) Income-since
it is a high-priced product; the potential consumers for thisproduct are high income earners.
A person who is earning more is more likely tobuy this product than a person who earns
comparatively lower income.Psychological factorPerception-Consumers perceive this brand as
’tasty and crispy’ ...chocolate not very sugary.It is perceived as a brand leader in this segment
and some firmly believe that thereis no competitor while mostly people regarded ’Britannia
bourbon’ as its maincompetitor ; very few consumers know that ’good day- choco nuts’ is

THE STRENGTH OF THE BRAND
Over the years, Parle has grown to become a multi-million US Dollarcompany. Many of the
Parle products - biscuits or confectionaries, aremarket leaders in their category and have won
acclaim at the MondeSelection, since 1971. Today, Parle enjoys a 40% share of the total biscuit
market and a 15%share of the total confectionary market, in India. The Parle Biscuit brands such
as, Parle-G, Monaco and Krackjack and confectionery brands, such as,Melody, Poppins,
Mangobite and Kismi, enjoy a strong imagery and appealamongst consumers.Be it a big city or a
remote village of India, the Parle name symbolizesquality, health and great taste! And yet, we
know that this reputation hasbeen built, by constantly innovating and catering to new tastes. This
can beseen by the success of new brands, such as, Hide & Seek, or the single twist wrapping of
Mango bite.In this way, by concentrating on consumer tastes and preferences andemphasizing
Research & Development, the Parle brand grows from strength to strength
Parle as a company has reached the maturity stage in its products life cycle; sinceproducts such
as parle-G, parle Monaco, parleKrackjack which form a major partof parle products’ sales have
captured most of India’s market.But for its premium biscuits parle hide and seek and parle hide
and seek Milanothe products are in the growth and introduction stages respectively.
For parle hide and seek:
Parle hide and seek was introduced in 1998 with favors such as mint, orange andchocolate. But it
did not really succeed in capturing the consumer’s attention. Soafter a few years it was re
launched with just one flavor i.e. chocolate flavor withnew packaging. After the re-launch it has
started gaining attention of its potentialbuyers and hence is in the growth stage of its life cycle. It
has to fight for its standin the market since it faces competition from Britannia’s good-day choco
Packaging and Labeling
Packaging: The time spent by a customer for picking up a product from a retail outlet is a
fewseconds; therefore a package should appeal to a customer within such a smallinterval of time.
In this, both packaging & labeling play an important role in attracting customers both visually
ForParleG: Parle G was initially recognized by its iconic white and yellow stripped wax paper
wrapper with the baby face on it. Many competitors have tried to selltheir lower quality products
by copying the packaging, trying to sell their biscuits as Parle-G; Parle-Jee etc. Due to increasing
competition Parle G now uses plastic wrappers for its packaging. Parle-G comes in 8 different
sizes: 25gms, 44gms,93.5gms, 231gms, 340.5gms, 462gms, 577.5gms and a 1kg pack just for
Rs.30 which is not usually offered by other brands.Parle Hide & Seek: It initially came out with
3 variants: Mint, Orange & Chocolate which wasn’t accepted by the masses. However, the
production of Mint & orangeflavors was stopped. Chocolate is the only flavor that is running
successfully sinceit is India’s first chocolate chip biscuit. . Hide & seek biscuit's
currentpackaging has been modified along with lower prices & better affordability rates. Thus
there is a change in size of the product which is prevalent in the ads. One of the advertisements
shows movie actor, HrithikRoshan walking with a pack of hide& seek biscuits in the back pocket
of his jeans emphasizing on the small size of theproduct.Parle hide & seek Milano: This product
of Parle has a flashy purple coloredpacking which attracts customers with the whole look of
Italian chocolate chipcookies.
Consumers are becoming increasingly health conscious. So it is essential to displaythe contents
of every product. Every packet of Parle G, Parle hide & seek, Parle hide& seek Milano has
information about the ingredients used, nutrition facts, mailing& emailing addresses asking for
feedback, phone number, packaging date etc. Allthis along with the brand name and directions
are printed in Hindi too.
Price Mix Pricing Strategies
Firms may decide to split their product mix into groups known as product lines. A product line is
a number of products grouped together based on similar characteristics. The characteristic used
to split products, will depend on the firm and its product strategy. They include product price,
product quality, who the product is aimed at (target group), and product specification features.
This is useful if the firm has a large product mix as there is less need to concentrate on individual
product type strategy. Parle a has a distinct product line which majorly includes biscuits, sweets
and snacks all the products are mentioned in the product length mentioned below.
The product line length shows the number of different products in a product line. A long product
line has lots of different products in it and a short product line has a small number of different
products. The product manager's job is to work out how many products to include in the product
line. If there are too many product types in a product line, they will begin to compete with each
other, increase costs unnecessarily and even confuse customers. If the product line is too short it
will limit customer choice and send customers to competitors with a greater selection of

The width of a company's product mix pertains to the number of product lines that a company
sells. For example, if a company has two product lines, its product mix width is two. Small and
upstart businesses will usually not have a wide product mix. It is more practical to start with
some basic products and build market share. Later on, a company's technology may allow the
company to diversify into other industries and build the width of the product mix
BISCUITS SWEETS SNACKS
Depth of a product mix pertains to the total number of variations for each product. Variations can
include size, flavor and any other distinguishing characteristic. For example, if a company sells
three sizes and two flavors of toothpaste, that particular brand of toothpaste has a depth of six.
Just like length, companies sometimes report the average depth of their product lines; or the
depth of a specific product line. Some of the product types in a product line may be split again
into groups. The product line depth shows how many subgroups the product line contains.

Competitors of Parle:
Parle Products company was founded in 1929 in British India. It was owned by the Chauhan
family of Vile Parle, Mumbai. Parle began manufacturing biscuits in 1939. In 1947, when India
became independent, the company launched an ad campaign, showcasing its Gluco biscuits as an
Indian alternative to the British biscuits. The Parle brand became well known in India
following the success of products such as the Parle-G biscuits and the Thumbs Up soft drink.
The original Parle company was split into three separate companies, owned by the different
factions of the original Chauhan family
Parle Products, led by Vijay, Sharad and Raj Chauhan (owner of the brands Parle-G,
Melody, Mango Bite, Poppins, Monaco and KrackJack)
Parle Agro, led by PrakashChauhan and his daughters Schauna, Alisha and Nadia (owner of
the brands such as Frooti and Appy)
Parle Bisleri, led by Ramesh Chauhan
All three companies continue to use the family trademark name "Parle". The original Parle group
was amicably segregated into three non-competing businesses. But a dispute over the use of
"Parle" brand arose, when Parle Agro diversified into the confectiona ry business, thus becoming
a competitor to Parle Products. In February 2008, Parle Products sued Parle Agro for using the
brand Parle for competing confectionary products. Later, Parle Agro launched its confectionery
products under a new design which did not include the Parle brand name .In 2009, the Bombay
High Court ruled that Parle Agro can sell its confectionery brands under the brand name "Parle"
or "Parle Confi" on condition that it clearly specifies that its products belong to a separate
company, which has no relationship with Parle Products.
Conclusion As per the surveys parle is largest selling biscuits and many other products also. It is
best in its quality. It has reasonable price and easily available in the market. All these qualities of
parle products makes it no.1 brand in the lines of biscuits, toffees and candies.
