INTRODUCTION

NEED OF THE STUDY

The project was an attempt to explore the “infrastructure development of Mother Dairy ice-
cream” in South Delhi region.

Mother Dairy, and keep convincing to start the Mother Dairy ice-cream business.
I have selected the different market stratified sampling and outlets by simple random sampling.
The data collected is first hand, and after collecting the data we analyze the data.
Under this scheme I was supposed to find the new retail outlet to start the Mother Dairy Ice-
cream, so the project involved selecting all potential market and convince retailers about the

Difference between ice-cream and frozen dessert:-

• Ice-cream is made from real fresh milk.
• Ice-cream is rich in protein, calcium, dairy cream and vitamins.

13
• Ice-cream are complete food, easy to digest and full of energy.

Frozen dessert:-
• Frozen desserts are generally made from vegetable oils/fats.
• The base of frozen dessert can be any sort of vegetable oils which can be any sort of
vegetable oils which is quite cheap.
• In frozen dessert milk fat is replaced with vegetable oil hence they are unable to give the

ORGANISATION INFORMATION

BACKGROUND

ABOUT MOTHER DAIRY

Mother diary is the largest liquid milk plant in Asia. It began on 4 th December 1974 under the
Operation Flood program of the National Dairy Development Board. It began with the supply of
40 liter milk that day and rest is history. In Delhi alone 50-55 lakh liters of milk is consumed
daily. Mother Dairy supplies around 20 lakh liters per day.

15
The target of Mother Diary is also to achieve clean milk production by 2010. The production of
milk also to be 100 million ton per annum. The current supply is 80million ton litre per annum.

At Mother Dairy, processing of milk is controlled by process automation whereby state-of-the-


art microprocessor technology is adopted to integrate and completely automate all functions of
the milk processing areas to ensure high product quality/ reliability and safety. Mother Dairy,
Delhi has been awarded ISO 9001:2000 (Quality Management Systems), HACCP,2002 RvA

Systems) Certifications. Moreover, its Quality Assurance Laboratory is Accredited as per
ISO/IEC 17025 :1999 by National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories,
Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.

The main challenge before dairy cooperatives is to be able to quickly adapt to a rapidly changing
domestic and world economic order, and with the WTO in place, not only hold its own in this
country but become a regional force! by focusing on strengthening the Marketing, Sales and
Distribution of the dairy sector in India and Mother Dairy has been identified as the vehicle for
driving and realizing this strategy.

The strategy is being operational zed through the formation of joint ventures between Mother
Dairy and the State co-operative federations. The joint venture companies would take on the
responsibility of driving the ongoing business of marketing, sale and distribution of the State
federation in a more organized, professional and efficient manner.

Focused approach

Mother Dairy wants to get into bigger markets and have bigger shares in those markets. The co-
operative is also expanding its product portfolio further to match rival offerings .So while the
product portfolio has been growing, Mother Dairy has plans for reach out to newer markets - but

products. This will, of course, be backed by relevant marketing and promotion campaigns.

Smart marketing

On the marketing front, Mother Dairy is trying to take its product campaigns and
communications to a higher platform. For instance, in the case of milk, the campaigns do not talk
about the obvious benefits - milk is good for health, it has calcium and so on - but rather it
targets children and are created around ideas such as "The country needs you, grow faster".

Mother Dairy has been carrying out school programs - games and activities - involving Makkhan
Singh in Delhi, it has plans to take such activities to Mumbai and Kolkata as well. It also runs a
gaming website on the character to attract children.

(REVIEW OF LITERATURE)

DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH

The project is basically divided into three parts. These are:

41
Market Survey

• Through a random selection of markets, all the retail outlets containing ice cream will
be visited and the market share of Mother Dairy and other competitors will be measured.

• Various issues relating to Mother Dairy and its supply will be gathered through a series
of questions put forward to the retailers.

Distribution

• A proper understanding of the distribution network will be understood by working with


the distributors and salesman.

• Thus understanding the loopholes between the distributors and the retailers.

Sales

• The potential retailers who are interested in owning deep freezers will be looked
upon.

• They will be attracted in keeping deep freezers through OYA scheme that is offered
by Mother Dairy.

MY OWN STRATEGIES TO COMPLETE TARGETS

42
Step 1) Markets are segregated into heads to get clear view of market potential.

• Individual retail shops


• Ice-cream parlors /coffee parlors
• Bakeries
• Bakery shops/sweet shops
• Restaurants
• Chemists shop
• Juice corner’s
• Caterer’s
• Party & wedding contractors

Step2). By making a database of all the potential customer’s by using secondary


Databases & directories like sulekha.com.

Step3). Contact them and follow them to convert to sales.

MAIN TEXT

43
Its Cold War out there. And this summer, it promises to be the fiercely ever the domestic ice-
cream industry has seen.
Yes I am talking about some of the ice-cream FMCG majors like mother dairy,
kwality wall’s, Amul, cream bell etc. All of them want to snatch a big chunk of ice-cream
business from the existing market which is increasing rapidly year on year. They have different
strategy to cater competition, to satisfy their customer’s, to increase their market share. But it’s a
time to do things differently, & so we too are, working with mother dairy ice-creams.
Our project is about understanding the ice cream industry and in particular Mother
Dairy. This project is helping us in getting practical experience about marketing research,
channel distribution, sales, and developing new strategies.

Basically project is divided into three parts:

 Market research
 Distribution channels
 Sales through own your asset program

The project will accomplish the following objectives:

• To find out the share of the mother dairy ice-cream in Delhi (South region)
• Expansion of Mother Dairy ice cream’s distribution network by increasing the number of
assets in the market through “Own Your Asset (OYA) program”.
Also to increase ice-cream sale through Rented his own deep freezer (RODF) scheme.
• Increase in the Channel partners’ satisfaction (Retailers and Distributors) by plugging the
loop holes found through the project.

Marketing Research
44
This was the first part of the project. This part deals in visiting a certain market that is actually
allocated to us. The survey will be helpful in understanding the current market scenario as well
as the market share of different brands in the ice cream industry. The main purpose lies in
interacting with the retailers who are into ice cream business. The comments regarding the
various brands are gathered and in particular of mother dairy. The positives and negatives of
each brand are noted. The issues such as replacement of ice creams, timely information about
schemes, distributor’s service, salesman visits, display boards, stickers and order placed are to be
observed. The basic purpose of market survey was to understand the markets and the pros and
cons of ice cream business.
Here we have covered 6 areas in 6 weeks. We have covered all the ice cream retail outlets. My
area is South Delhi.

WORKING PROCEDURE

Here we have to approach various retail outlets & enquire about problems, complaints,
suggestions etc. As a part of marketing research we also have to collect data in order to find
market share of mother dairy from our sample space. During this period we are in constant touch
with our sales executive and area sales manager and have to submit weekly report about each
market and full information about each shop in those markets.
Questionnaire consisting of open ended questions was used for collecting the information.

OBSERVATIONS TO BE MADE WHILE DOING SURVEY

45
1. Whether the deep freezer is in a good condition or not?
2. What is the position of boards and point of purchase displays?
3. Which Ice cream has then major share of deep freezer?
4. Which brand is pushed by the retailer?

FEED BACK QUESTIONNAIRE FOR RETAILERS DURING MARKET


SURVEY

1. Do you keep Ice-cream? If yes, of which company(s)?


2. Are you satisfied with the supply/ service of the company(s)? If no, what are the
problems faced?
3. At which period of time customers come in bulk?

Thus through market research information on the presence of various brands, there supply, issues
of the retailers through open ended questions provided above were gathered.

UNDERSTANDING DISTRIBUTION NETWORK

This is the second part of the project. This part deals in working and understanding the market
that the distributor and the salesman handle. Various issues such as salesman’s visit, supply
status, mode of supply, awareness of promotional activity,S display status, Deep freezer purity of
Mother Dairy’s ice cream are to be gathered. Thus any loophole that exists between the
distributor and salesman, salesman and retailer can be worked upon and necessary
recommendations could be provided.

WORKING PROCEDURE

46
In these phase we are associated with the distributor Mother Dairy has a wide distribution
channel consisting of one distributor in Mahipalpur. Our market is divided into many beats
form Wednesday to Monday. We have to move around with the sales man to the prospective beat
and look for the issues in the supply chain, distribution network, retailer satisfaction, purity
status, point of purchase displays, salesman visit. If there arises small issue then we have to solve
that issue at our level, otherwise have to inform territory sales in charge immediately. Sometimes
sales executive will also accompany us in this process. The results of our findings are displayed
here. These show that Mother Dairy lags in promotional activity, display and visibility.

DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL OF MOTHER DAIRY

The distribution channel adopted by Mother Dairy is given as:

48
 Factory

Mother Dairy has manufacturing plants in New Delhi, where the ice-cream is made. The
company has its own fleet of trucks, which are used to transport Ice cream to the C & F
agents.
The company takes daily stocks with these agents and fills up the gap between the required
and the prevailing stock. The company decides the level of stocks to be maintained as per the
demand in the market. The factories send their trucks with the required stock of Ice-creams.

 Clearing And Forwarding Agent:


The main function of these C & F agents is to store the ice creams made in the factories and
to further transfer it to distributor. They are thus merely agents of Mother Dairy to work on a
fixed salary. The company hires their premises/ cold storage and they are entrusted with the
task of safe keeping and forwarding their products to the distributor. This incurs the
following cost:
 Cost of storage i.e. warehousing, electricity
 Salary of the workers and the employees – workers include temporary used for
loading and storing functions. Employees include the accountants, manager and
operators, clerks and guards.
 Initial cost – Mother Dairy before assign any one as their C&F agents ask for
certain initial infrastructures. So it is essential for a prospective C&F to have
adequate storage space, proper cold storage facility and competitive workers and
employees.
 Mother Dairy pays a fixed amount to these C&F agents. This policy is necessary
in ice cream as the seasonal variation is very high. So fixed percentage of unit
sales will not work as these C&F agents incur very high expenses. These C&F
agents keep their daily record of their supplies to the different distributor and thus
provide a daily update to the concern managers in Mother Dairy. The entire
exercise of determine the stock and supply level is carried out solely by Mother
Dairy and the C&F agent has no role to play in it.

 Distributors:
They form the next unit of distribution chain. Their main job is to collect ice creams from
the C&F agents and supply it to the retailers and in some case also to the vending

49
distributors. Thus forms a very important part of the chain as they argument the physical
reach of the company by adding new retailers to their fold. They also serve as a channel
for getting feedback from the market that is the consumers. They keep the company
abreast of the demand pattern in the market as regards which product is doing well and
which is not. The distributors are appointed on the basis of geographic region as well as
the number of retailers. Presently Mother Dairy has only one distributor in my working
areas to cater the retailers as well as to vending distributors. The distributor’s profit
margin is 6%. The distributor has a cold storage, which costs Rs 6 Lacs. The initial
investment required for distributor is Rs 10 to 15 Lacs.

Various heads of cost for a distributor


 Storage Costs: this forms an important component of the total costs. Firstly sufficient in
the form of well appointed premises to house the freezers and facilitate transfer of stock
to retailers and push carts. So the rent payable and the security on the premises from part
of the cost. Secondly the distributor is required to have deep freezer to store ice cream
product, which are highly perishable products. Due to this region freezer assume great
importance and their maintenance is necessary to ensure that the products remain
unspoiled.
 Distribution Cost: This is also a major part of the cost incurred by the distributor. He
has to employ refrigerated vehicle to transport ice cream to different retailer and also to
vending distributors. Normally, the vehicle used for this purpose is Maruti van or
specially designed vehicle in which deep freezer is installed, or small auto rickshaws.
Now, this small auto rickshaw comes into use in no entry areas where big vehicles can
not enter. The freezers on these vehicles operate on battery, which once charged work up
to 8-10 hours easily.

 Electricity Cost: The average electricity cost is Rs.8000 per month considering the
distributor has at least two deep freezers. The freezer run on around the clock basis, as the
product is perishable. The distributor also maintains the generator in the case of power
failure, which adds to the diesel cost.

 Staff, Including Electrician: The salaries to the staff also contribute significantly to the
costs. Apart from the labor employed for loading and unloading stock the other staff such

50
as administrative, accounts, drivers of the vehicle on its daily and electrician is also kept
handy.

 Miscellaneous Costs: These comprise the sundry expenses relating to the wear and tear
of the equipment, the dry ice used to preserve ice cream. Regular payments to the police
and also to the civic bodies like the Development Authority who charge certain fees to
the push carts which operates in the area.

 Stock In Hand: apart from the above mentioned cost, the distributor also have to invest
in the stock in the trade that is the volume of the stock they have on their on hands which
have not been sold or payment has not been realized on which this value varies
depending on the size and area of the distributor and the number of retailers.

51
 Vending distributor:

He is the link in the chain that services the push cart. The vending distributor operates push
carts mainly but is free to tap retailers too. Push carts operators get a profit margin of 14%. It
is true that push cart cannibalized the retailer’s business to a great extent. This is because
when a consumer gets a ice cream near his house or any where on the road side, why would
he go to retail outlet. Push cart are popular outside schools, in residential colonies. the
vending distributors gets a margin of 4.75%. The normal practice is that the various push
carts operators gather at the distributors premises and get a refill.

 Retailers:

Retailers were the favored source for an ice cream before the starting of push carts. Mother
Dairy has a retail network of 80 retailers in SHAIBABAD (GHAZIABAD). Now these are
the exclusive outlets as well as those, which stock other brands too. Their profit margin
comes to 15% on MRP. Retailers still occupy a place of importance because of the fact that
are located in the market place where consumers makes most of the purchases. Their location
works to their advantage as well as their disadvantage.

 Deep freezer: the retailer has to pay full amount of deep freezer which usually depends
on the size (capacity) of the freezer and also the profile of the retailer. The minimum cost
of deep freezer is Rs 15075/=.
 High Electricity Charge: the cost of electricity has troubled retailers but their gained
respite as the deep freezer are high energy efficient which helps in reducing electricity
cost as the consumption is very low.
 Shortage of space: we found that the retailers often decline to keep a new brand because
of paucity of space to keep deep freezers.

52
THE PROCESS USED TO ESTABLISH NEW MOTHER DAIRY
OUTLETS

The process used to place Mother Dairy ice cream in my areas is following:

To setup an infrastructure of cold chain in market for the proper distribution and sale of ice
cream and made available for the consumers.
So, do this thing I have used following process.

 First select the prospective place and the outlet where the market of ice cream in
high demand, and the shop keeper that are interested to sell the ice cream, and
these outlets may be existing ice cream outlets or Non Ice cream outlets.

 For selecting the prospective outlets our strategy is to see when ice cream
consumption is maximum in a day. After observation we found the maximum
consumption of ice cream to be in evening after 5 p.m, so we selected that outlets
which are open up to 10 p.m. in night or the market which are open till night

 We also get to know that below 25 years of age group account for 80% of
consumption and the retail sales account for 70% of total sales. So going along as
per the study our next target is the retail outlets near school, collage, cinema halls,
shopping- complex, malls etc.

 Then after we look for the main requirement i.e. Deep freezer, are available or not
to the outlets, because without Deep freezer Ice cream business can not be started.

 If Deep freezer was available then convince them to sell Mother Dairy ice cream
by giving information regarding profit margin, demand, distribution etc.

53
 If the Deep freezer is not available to the retailers then we convince them to buy
the Deep freezer and give information about the benefits they will get if buy
through the Mother Dairy and make them aware with terms and condition to buy
the Deep freezer

 Finally if the retailer interested then collect the amount as per the quantity of
Deep freezer required, in the form of DD/CHEQE/CASH in favor of respective
manufacturing company.

 After depositing the amount to the respective companies the Deep freezer reach to
the retailer within the 3 to 5 days and after one or two days and retailer can start
the selling of ice cream.

To represent the clear picture bar chart has been used.

Interpretation: - From the bar chart it is clear that maximum number of retailers is not
interested to start Ice cream business, and 10 retailers are interested and 30 are not interested, at
ending period I analyzed that only 10 retailers are interested 30 are not interested to start Ice
cream business. 26 retail outlets are those where deep freezer is already installed. 10 retailers
will contact latter.

71
During the whole summer training period some of the retail outlets visited annoyed with
distributor. They complained about non cooperation from the distributor side. The distributor
promised to retailers, at the start of business, to take back Ice creams during prolonged power
cuts. But the only provide this facility first two or three times.

After that they never fulfill their promise. Because of this many retailers suffered heavy loss and
therefore retailers are not interested to restart the Ice cream business.

The other problem faced during the whole period of summer training was after sale service of
deep freezer or Deep freezer reached to the retailers were in bad condition and were not working
properly from the very first day.

SWOT ANALYSIS OF MOTHER DAIRY

Strengths

 India’s best-known brand across all categories.


 Mother Dairy have India’s one of the biggest frozen highway.
 Well-established distribution and delivery network for dairy based product.
 Biggest sourcing base for milk and dairy based product.
 Mother Dairy has a wide portfolio in the pure milk based ice cream, rather than frozen
desert.

72
 Large variety of ice cream and its reasonable price gives the value for money to
customer.
 Consumers have trust on the brand name of Mother Dairy, which is helping to Mother
Dairy build up a formidable image.

Weakness

 The main weakness of Mother Dairy is that the advertising strategy is not as competitive
as Kwality walls and other brand.
 The replacement policy of Mother Dairy is very tough, and because of this many retailer
don’t want to go with Mother Dairy.
 One of the major weakness is availability of product & services in peak seasons.
 Company have no strategy for those retailer who don’t want to invest in deep freezer or
financially weak.

73
Opportunities

 Exploitation of whole South Delhi is still required.


 Mother Dairy has the opportunity to capture the most evolved young adult and children
market.
 Take an advantage of other company’s outlet by convincing the retailer and provide
them extra benefits for selling Mother Dairy ice cream.
 In many areas people are not interested to invest big amount on ice cream so Mother
Dairy has a great chance to excel by introducing Ice cream of Rs. 2 or 3.

Threat

 Mother Dairy might face competition from other national players but the big threat for
Mother Dairy ice cream is local manufacturers in the low end of the market.
 Mother Dairy is facing tough competition in bulk deal like; gallons and other party packs
because the customer of this segment mostly concern first with price then quality.
 In some areas the delivery service of Mother Dairy is not up to the mark compare to
other players.
 Different scheme from other players such as providing deep freezer to the retailer on
FOC, Security and Installment
 In some areas salesman do not visit properly .

74
CHAPTER-6
CONCLUSION

75
Working for an organization like Mother Dairy in the South Delhi region is a pride for me and
gave me a chance to learn the marketing skill and help me to understand the real environment of
business and South Delhi market potential for dairy product helps me lot.

In an areas like South Delhi need a lot of planning has to be made before making any offer to the
customer. As far as ice cream is concerned the competition is tough with reputed brands which
fighting for their share in the market.

But owing to its brand image, quality, price and taste Mother Dairy is undisputed leader in retails
with an evenly distributed retail outlet in Delhi, which results for higher sales for Mother Dairy
ice cream. As far as other avenues for sales is concerned like institutional selling and other bulk
deals etc. Mother Dairy is far behind and has to cover a long distance and more efforts have to be
done in this field, to increase its total revenue.

At last it was a great experience to me working with Mother Dairy, a reputed brand in FMCG
sector because many of the management guru’s said if you work successfully in FMCG sector
than you can survive easily in any sector.

76
CHAPTER-7
SUGGESTIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

77
Suggestions

There are some suggestions which are as follows:

1. The aggressive marketing should be started as to stop the growth of the new
growing companies like Cream bell, Amul etc.
Mother Dairy is a very big brand if Mother Dairy want then they can capture more than
70% of the market for this there is a need of aggressive marketing, because now a days
many companies like Cream bell, Amul, Kwality Walls are trying to capture the market.

2. Mother Dairy should start a new innovative deep freezer scheme.


Company should make a provision to provide deep freezer to retailer either on
installment or on FOC whichever will be suitable. This is just due to that many retailers
want to sell ice cream but they do not want to invest money, if they are ready to invest
then they want deep freezer on installment. If company is providing deep freezer to the
retailer on installment then the number of installment should not exceed then three,
because peak season of ice cream mainly consist three month. If any one want to buy
deep freezer in winter season then company provide some extra discount either on deep
freezer or on first sale of ice cream.

3. Mother Dairy should give reward to the retailers whose sales are high.
Mother Dairy should give reward to those retailers who are selling product above the
target given to them.

4. Mother Dairy should increase the beat on those areas where Retailer faced the
problem due to less visit of salesman

5. Mother Dairy should concentrate more on delivery service because most of the
retailers are not satisfied with the delivery..

78
6. Mother Dairy should start Advertising on Radio.
Because in my point of view, Radio is available every where in radio so to reach more
customers, it would be better to advertise through radio.

Limitations
The project having some limitation these are as follows:

• The study was conducted in South Delhi, only so the area of the study was limited
which may affect on the report conclusion slightly.
• Some of the respondents were not interested to have Mother Dairy brand because
they have already other brands.
• Some of the respondents could not give their proper response due to the lack of their
time.
• There was not any provision of visiting cards for summer trainee, which often
restricted us in moving into any government or private institutions to consult the
caterers providing service in the concerned offices. As we were always asked for
identity proof of the company while taking payment
• The limitation of this project was ,the technical support regarding deep freezer
haven’t provided to us during summer training period which hampered the training
some times, when we were not able to make them understand regarding technical
aspect of deep freezer.
• The big limitation of this project was that we were not able to commit any thing to
retailers because we haven’t given such power.
