“A study on custmers’ preference towards packaged grocery product”

  1. 1. “A STUDY ON CUSTMERS’ PREFERENCE TOWARDS PACKAGED GROCERY PRODUCT” Abstract I have conducted a research on topic “ A study on customers’ preference towards grocery packaged product’. For this I selected Durg and Bhilai as a target market and I started my researchfrom11th of March 2014 and collectedthe datafromthese twocities. I collected data from businessmen,students,servicemen/professionals and households. I completed my data collection on 23/03/2014 and then I started data tabulation & finally I made data analysis 25/03/2014. In data analysis I used One-way ANOVA Technique. I used SPSS to analyze the data. As the result, I found that there is a significantdifference betweenthe factors of packagedgrocery product in the opinion of the customers.All factorshave differentimpactonthe preference of customersandthese factors help the marketers while developing sales strategies. INTRODUCTION Very early in time, food was consumed where it was found. Families and villages were self- sufficient, making and catching what they used. When containers were needed, nature provided gourds, shells, and leaves to use. Later, containers were fashioned from natural materials, such as hollowed logs, woven grasses and animal organs. Fabrics descended from furs used as primitive clothing. Fibers were matted into felts by plaiting or weaving. These fabrics were made into garments, used to wrap products or formed into bags. With the weaving process, grasses, and later reeds, were made into baskets to store food surpluses. Some foods could then be saved for future meals and less time was needed for seeking and gathering food. As ores and compounds were discovered, metals and pottery were developed, leading to other packaging forms. A brief review of the more popular packaging developments are included in this fact sheet. Sixty years ago our food was grown, farmed and processed within relatively short distances of retail outlets. Today, foods originate all over the world. The functions of packaging have
  2. 2. multiplied and foods must be protected and kept in good condition during transport and storage throughout the distribution chain. All the skill, quality, and reliability built into the food during growing, processing, and preparation will be wasted unless proper design and manufacture of packaging ensures 'safe delivery to the consumer in prime condition at an economic cost'. The Grocery sector in India is riding the wave of the retail revolution. It is a large industry divided into organized and unorganized, small and large scale units. Rice, Atta, Sugar, Pulses are the major products that fall in this category. Nichrome has contributed to this sector in a big way. Kohinoor, Dawat, Pilsbury, Kargil, ITC, India Gate, Lal Quila, KBR, Deccan Sugar, Mawana Sugar, Nilgiris.... LITERATURE REVIEW History of food packaging Early in history food was consumed where it was found. With the development of agriculture, families and villages were self-sufficient, producing, making and catching what they used. When packaging was needed, nature provided shells, gourds, animal skins etc. In time, containers or packaging were made from natural materials such as reeds, grasses,
  3. 3. logs, bark and animal parts. Grasses and reeds were woven into baskets to store food. As ores and metals were discovered, metals and pottery were developed, leading to other packaging forms. An approximate chronology is as follows: > 20,000 years ago – modified natural materials – grass, reeds, skins 8,000 years ago – ceramics, amphorae, - developed in the Middle East 5,000 years ago – wood, barrels, boxes, crates – wooden boxes found in Egyptian tombs 3,500 years ago – mass produced ceramics, pottery – invention of the pottery wheel 2,500 years ago – glass containers, - glass blowing developed by the Phoenicians and Syrians 2,000 years ago – paper and cellulose fibres - not true paper. The last 1,000 years has seen many changes and advances in packaging as a result of huge social change. The expansion of trade played a part. In the 1970s a study of packaging systems in China found that 17.5 percent of the country’s cement was lost during transportation; and 20 percent of all glass was damaged before it could be used. Similar findings came out of a study in Russia in the 1980s where it was found that lack of packaging, distribution and storage facilities resulted in annual losses of: 45 percent of fresh vegetables – as high as 70 percent of potatoes; 55 percent of fresh fruit; 50 percent of grain; 1 million tons of meat; and 1.5 million tons of fish. Packaging has several objectives:
  4. 4.  Physical protection - The foodenclosedinthe package may require protectionfrom, among other things, shock, vibration, compression, temperature, etc.  Barrier protection - A barrier from oxygen, water vapor, dust, etc., is often required. Permeation is a critical factor in design. Some packages contain desiccants or Oxygen absorbers to help extend shelf life. Modified atmospheres or controlled atmospheres are alsomaintainedinsome food packages.Keepingthe contents clean, fresh, and safe for the intended shelf life is a primary function.  Containmentor agglomeration - Small itemsare typically grouped together in one package for reasons of efficiency. powders, and granular materials need containment.  Information transmission - Packages and labels communicate how to use, transport, recycle, or dispose of the package or product. Some types of information are required by governments.  Marketing - The packaging and labels can be used by marketers to encourage potential buyers to purchase the product. Package design has been an important and constantly evolvingphenomenon forseveral decades. Marketing communications and graphic design are applied to the surface of the package and (in many cases) the point of sale display.  Security - Packaging can play an important role in reducing the security risks of shipment. Packages can be made with improved tamper resistance to deter tampering and also can have tamper-evident features to help indicate tampering. Packages can be engineered to helpreduce the risks of package pilferage: Some package constructions are more resistant to pilferage and some have pilfer indicating seals. Packages may include authentication seals to help indicate that the package and contents are not counterfeit. Packages also can include anti-theft devices, such as dye-packs, RFID tags, or electronic article surveillance
  5. 5. tags, thatcan be activatedor detectedby devicesat exitpointsandrequire specializedtools to deactivate. Using packaging in this way is a means of retail loss prevention.  Convenience - Packagescanhave featureswhichadd convenience in distribution, handling, stacking, display, sale, opening, reclosing, use, and reuse.  Portion control - Single serving packaging has a precise amount of contents to control usage.Bulkcommodities(suchassalt) can be divided intopackagesthatare a more suitable size forindividualhouseholds.It isalso aidsthe control of inventory:sellingsealedone-liter- bottles of milk, rather than having people bring their own bottles to fill themselves. = Types of Package Paper and Paper Products Paper may be the oldest form of what today is referred to as "flexible packaging."Sheetsof treatedmulberrybarkwere usedbythe Chinese to wrap foods as early as the Firstor SecondcenturyB.C. Duringthe next fifteen hundredyears,the paper-makingtechnique was refined and transported to the Middle East, then Europe and finally into the United Kingdom in 1310. Eventually, the technique arrived in America in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1690. Paper and paperboard packaging increased in popularity well into the 20th century. Then with the advent of plastics as a significant player in packaging (late 1970s and early 1980s), paper and its related products tended to fade in use. Lately that trend has halted as designers try to respond to environmental concerns. Glass Althoughglass-makingbeganin7000 B.C. as an offshoot of pottery, it was first industrialized in Egypt in 1500 B.C. Made from base materials (limestone, soda, sand and silica), which were in plentifulsupply,all ingredients were simplymelted togetherandmoldedwhile hot. Since that early discovery, the mixing process and the ingredients have changed very little, but the molding techniques have progressed dramatically. At first, ropes of molten glass were coiled into shapes and fused together. By 1200 B.C., glass was pressed into molds to make cups and bowls.
  6. 6. While other packaging products, such as metals and plastics, were gaining popularity in the 1970s, packaging in glass tended to be reserved for high value products. As a type of "rigid packaging," glass has many uses today. Metals Ancientboxes and cups, made from silver and gold, were much too valuable for common use. Other metals, stronger alloys, thinner gauges and coatings were eventually developed. The processof tinplating was discovered in Bohemia in 1200 A.D. and cans of iron, coated with tin, were known in Bavaria as early as the 14th = century.=20 However, the plating process was a closely guarded secret until the 1600s. In 1764, London tobacconists began selling snuff in metal canisters, another type of today's "rigid packaging." But no one was willing to use metal = for food=20 since it was considered poisonous. The safe preservation of foods in metal containers was finally realized in France in the early 1800s. Since food was now safe within metal packaging, other products were made available in metal boxes.Inthe 1830s, cookiesandmatcheswere soldin tinsand by1866 the firstprintedmetal boxes were made in the United States for cakes of Dr. Lyon's tooth powder. Plastics Plasticisthe youngestincomparisonwithotherpackaging materials. Althoughdiscoveredinthe 19th century, most plastics were reserved for military and wartime use. Styrene was first distilled from a balsam tree in 1831. But the early products were brittle and shattered easily. Germany refined the process in 1933 and by the 1950s foam was available worldwide.Insulationandcushioning materials as well as foam boxes, cups and meat trays for the food industry became popular. . Labels and Trademarks One rather recent development in packaging is the labeling of the product with the company name and contents information. In the 1660s, imports into England often cheated the public and the phrase "let the buyer beware" became popular. Inferior quality and impure products were disguised and sold to
  7. 7. uninformedcustomers.Honestmerchants,unhappy withthis deception,beganto mark their wares with their identification to alert potential buyers. Official trademarkswere pioneered in1866 bySmithBrothersfor theircough drops marketedin large glassjars. This was a new idea - using the package to "brand" a product for the benefit of the consumer. In 1870, the first registered U.S. trademark was awarded to the Eagle-Arwill Chemical Paint Company.Today,there are nearlythree-quartersof a million (750,000) registeredtrademarksinthe UnitedStates alone.Labelsnowcontaina great deal of informationintended to protect and instruct the public. A Review From containers provided by nature to the use of complex materials and processes, packaging has certainly changed. Various factors contributed to this growth: the needs and concerns of people,competitioninthe marketplace, unusual events(suchaswars),shiftinglifestyles, as well as discoveriesand inventions.Justasno single cause influencedpast development, a variety of forces will be required to create the packages of the future. Major Competitors of packaged product  Reliance Fresh: To cover 70 cities, 784 urban towns and 6,000 - odd rural mandis  Future Group: 500 Spencer's Fresh, Daily, Super and Hyper  Wadhawan Group: 1,500 Spinach / S-Mart / Sabka Bazaar outlets in 100 cities  Subhiksha : 2,500 neighbourhood outlets across the nation Other major players firming up Pan-India plans include Bharti-Walmart, AV Birla Group (Trinethra/More), Heritage Foods (Fresh @, Hypercity, Dairy Farm, (Foodworld), Nilgiris, Radhakrishna Foodland, Influx, Landmark Group (Spar), Mother Dairy and Safal & region specificexpansion byJubilantGroup(JumboSaver & Monday 2 Sunday), Hopcoms and Margin Free in South, Adanis and Arambagh Foodmart in East India among others
  8. 8. Opportunity in grocery and food The Urban Middle Class continues to grow by 20-25 million annually. The population is young, better exposed to modern lifestyles, and has a preference for packaged food and beverages. This growing Indian Middle Class, especially the employed youth in the ITES, BPO and other Service sectors, have higher propensity to consume, fuelled by easy availability of credit due to popularization of plastic cards. More than 1,000 Food and Grocery outlets operational across tier-I and tier-II cities and Retail space of over 3 million sq. ft. have come up for F&G supermarkets, department stores and hypermarkets. 25 major F&G Retailers emerged in less than a year and Retail sales in this segment grew by nearly 150 per cent over 2006. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY Research Objectives 1) To find out the preference level of packaged grocery product. 2) To identify the factors of packaged grocery factors. 3) To find out the significant/differences/similaritiesbetweenthe factors.
  9. 9. Research Model Questionnaire Design In questionnaire, I have used Likert’s measurement scale to identify the preference level of the customers’preference towardspackagedgroceryproduct. Here 1 to 5 scales are used to be marked their preference level , where ‘1 stands for Do not consider’, ‘2 stands for just consider’ , ‘3 stands for little consider’, ‘4 stands for highly consider’ and ‘5 stands for more highly consider’. This questionnaire includes 9 factors, which measures customers’ preference for packaged grocery product. I decided9 factorsfor measuringthe preference level of customerslike availability , quality Customers’ preference Availability of product Quality of product Feasibility of collection Purification of product Separation of product Packaged size of product Brand Name Convenient Time Saving

CONCLUSIONS In conclusion, it can be said that there should be highly availability of packaged grocery product. Most of the factors which influence the customers to purchase it are quality, purification,brandname, convenientandtime saving and these are helpful to increase the sales of this. Businessclasspeople,service/professional, student as well as unmarried people are the customerswhohighlyrequire thisproductasthe time saving is concerned. It may bring a bright day for this grocery product sector if these are taken on the right hand & right way because as this age is concerned, every one needs convenient, time saving in everything whatever they can be availed.
