INTRODUCTION
AMONG fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) companies that are more inclined to freezing their ad budgets, the biscuits category has emerged as a tough cookie with higher advertising sbiscuitsds and improved visibility across media.

According to AdEx India, a division of TAM Media Research, which has been tracking food sector promotions, advertising in the biscuits category on television has grown by 39 per cent in 2003 as compared with 2002. Britannia Industries and Parle Products top the list of advertisers with nearly 35 per cent and 33 per cent of the advertising respectively, while Surya Food & Agro Pvt Ltd with its Priya Gold brand retains the third position. ITC Ltd stands fourth.

"Biscuits as a category have grown by around 8-10 per cent since last year, with enhanced competition across the category. Brands
10

such as Priya Gold have come out of their local fold, and are competing nationally. ITC's Sunfeast has also widened the category further," said Mr Pravin Kulkarni, Marketing Manager, Parle Products Pvt Ltd.

Apart from increasing competition, a shift in consumer attitude has spurred the growth in this category. Biscuits are now considered more as a meal substitute instead of a plain snack, Mr Kulkarni said. Moreover, consumers have also begun to shed the `remorse factor' about consuming sweet cookies with high calorie content," he added.

INDUSTRY PROFILE

Britenia is well-know name to the Indian consumer but as Priya Gold is a comparatively new launched and though it has connections with Candia which though again a big shot in dairy products is less know to a average India consumer. The retailer are being educated about product Priya Gold by informing them about it being a sister concern later on telling them about the International connection of the Priya gold with Candia which the market leader in diary product in France and Europe. The company first looking to consolidate its distribution network before spending on improving brand awareness the result few advertisement on air. This policy of the company can be counter productive in the new biscuits arena where the market is tough and competitors are big. My efforts were concentrated more and more on educating the customer and retailer about the product and compensating for the less promotion that the company was forced into.
13

The company is into the market where there are big competitors in the market and the already have a solid brand name. So to lap up the market the company is trying hard to flex its muscle and show that they are the best and have the unique tastes that can drive both sale and volumes. My project aims at providing information about the current biscuits market, which is growing at 16% per year. The project will give information to the organization about the dealers choice and preference for the selling over others products or brand and the cause behind it and customers likings and disliking regarding our product comparing to other product. In short this product can make the product more popular and customer and retailer aware, which may help the organization to take step to promote its product as well as to drive up the volumes and sales simultaneously.

COMPANY PROFILE
The wondrous magical journey of our company Surya Food & Agro Ltd. began in Oct. 1993 & since then we have been one of the leading manufacturers of biscuits in northern India. Our brand PRIYAGOLD has been a perennial household favorite since then. On a profound level spread in to western as well as southern India, the inevitable cycle of distribution network has helped us to spread into western India as well. Our obsession is to make the finest quality biscuits available to the consumers & our constant endeavor is to provide our consumers, a palate to look forward to a taste & flavor that is uniquely PRIYAGOLD.

We are operating in the new age, ruled by the dizzying pace of technology, poised to pace up with emerging trends thus improving quality standards every time. Our fully automated ovens bake the biscuits round the clock and then they find their way to the automatic packing units at the companys plant in

16

Surajpur, Greater Noida (U.P.), catering the ever growing demand of PRIYAGOLD biscuits. This is reflected through our brands positioning which says Haq Se Maango, a positioning that was formulated keeping in mind that everyone has the right to good taste and the right to ask for it. We feel that the means to finding the future lies in believing in ourselves. Our over the period created trust and confidence, can never be destroyed, just like the eternal force of nature. We adhere to ensure that PRIYAGOLD continue moving forward towards achieve best quality for total consumers satisfaction. Towards ensuring your good health, our humble efforts. Cherish it, with us.

17

QUALITY: Priya gold is committed to produce quality Writing Instruments to the total satisfaction of its customers. It is the policy of Priya gold to develop and supply innovative products meeting the customers requirements from time to time. The company realizes that this shall be achieved only through continuous upgradation of technology, team work, motivation of employees and participative management. Apart from ISO-9001 standard, our products also conform to DIN quality for our products and for the entire marker range. While Britannia introduced more variants in its Good Day brand, Parle included a few more variants under its Hide & Seek franchise with flavours such as butter, badam pista and cashew. Surya Food & Agro Pvt Ltd also plans to introduce three more variants of Priya Gold biscuits this year and has lined up major expansion plans. Mr B. P. Agarwal, Chairman, Priya Gold, told Business Line: "With the biscuits category growing, it is natural that ad
18

sbiscuitsds will increase and stimulate demand. We will enter the southern markets of Hyderabad and Banglore by the month-end and will further fuel the competition." Priya Gold is sbiscuitsding Rs 8 crore on advertising this year. Unlike a time when biscuits were considered aspirational in the largest of the SEC categories, brands such as Priya Gold have been able to grow by capitalising on increase in width (more consumers consuming biscuits) and depth of consumption (same consumers consuming more) along with increased frequency of consumption, Mr Jagdeep Kapoor, Managing Director, Samsika Marketing Consultants Pvt Ltd, said. The study also says that dramas, soaps, feature films and comedies are emerging as primary genres for advertising biscuits, which indicates an evident swing in strategy from targeting children to targeting the family. While 54 per cent of the television advertising sbiscuitsds in the biscuits category in 2003 was directed towards genres such as

19

soaps, feature films and comedies, 12 per cent was sbiscuitst on cartoon channels. Biscuits are considered more of a family product, and targeting programmes watched by the entire household is the best bet for biscuit companies rather than just cartoon channels, Mr Kapoor said. Chairman of surya Agro & Foods Ltd recieves the International Quality Crown Award in London, December, 2004.

20

SURYA Food & Agro Ltd, maker of PriyaGold brand of biscuits, has unveiled a contest titled PriyaGold Khaao Aur Khelo.

According to the Chairman and Managing Director, Mr B.P. Agarwal, on every purchase of Rs 50 and above worth of PriyaGold biscuits, the customer will be given a free gift coupon, enabling him to become eligible for a prize.

The first prize will be a Mercedes Benz car, followed by Maruti Alto (5 second prizes), Tanishq Jewellery (10 third prizes) and a Compaq Laptop (10 fourth prizes).

21

COMPANY STRATEGY: Post Launch strategy detail. I. The company persisted with functional appeal in its ads throughout 2003. II. At the height of sales during growth period, the company extends to the emotional platform PriyaGold Khaao Aur Khelo. However, the sales continued to drop for the last two months. But this was more to do with product quality than promotion failure. The company

systematically oriented the marketing mix elements especially product quality to arrest the declining. III. The price of the existing product, which started becoming popular to the customer, suddenly became high. This also affected a lot the market. POSITIONING STRATEGY It hasnt stick to its original tagline of Haq Se Mango throughout the life cycle, while at the same time other brands remains with their tang line. incrementally

22

Phase I the original tagline was supplemented with Haq Se Mango. It showed how Priya gold could make a family including a husband, wife and kids mother-in-law and the family friend a romantic dream sequence, highlighting the taste factor.. Phase II- The new media blitz was a feature of specific campaign on the promotion of the newly launched product. But the price of family pack is too much higher than the popular brands available in the market.

23

MARKETING STRATEGY Phase I- Competing on price differential, at Rs. 5 to Rs. 125 for a family. It was only segment to make the customer happy by paying so little amount for a biscuits. Phase II- Now the company has started giving promotional scheme to dealer as well as to the customer. The highly priced [Rs.30] is now available at a lower price 5.00. Phase III- But the promotional scheme came at late session of the main pick season. Now the competitors also started giving more attractive promotional scheme to the consumer as well as to the dealer. Phase IV Discount to dealers is also lower the other brands. So the dealers are also less interested to associate with the Cream Bell.

DISTRIBUTION NETWORK

The distribution network of the Priya gold biscuits is its biggest strength that helps it to reach the market that it caters to effectively and efficiently. This is achieved by maintaining trade relations, providing innovation incentives to retailer. We use carrying & forwarding Agents (C & FA) who pass on the textile to distribution Stockiest (DC) who sell to registered wholesalers. The wholesalers feed retailers. C&FA act as a buffer stock point to ensure that stock does not take place. This system has proved to be both cost effective and time saving using C & FA also allows them to save on taxes.

MARKET
Whether the biscuits is mightier than the sword is a verse that has been put to the test through centuries of turmoil, upheaval and civil strife. But would it survive the mechanization of the school? This has been a question that has haunted the writing instruments industry for three decades. Thirty years later the answer: the market lives! In this digital age, it continues to be the enduring symbol of literacy and refinement. In India, the multi-billion rupee computer industry has failed to displace the humble biscuits as the tool for communication. These simple truisms are continually relevant in a society where nearly a third of the population has just about started to ink success by emerging from the darkness of illiteracy. The Indian writing instruments market is estimated at Rs. 150 billion and is growing at a healthy clip of 12% annually (Source: bakery Industry estimates). The leader, among several manufacturers, Priya gold, has the largest market share and its turnover is expected to exceed Rs. 15 billion in 2004. Priya gold is the front runner in the most
28

important segments of the market, with its full suite of biscuitss and other writing instruments that serve various applications and needs.

ACHIEVEMENTS The biscuits, by virtue of being an I-see-it-a-million-times-a-day, product probably evokes little or no excitement. But the truth really is that no segment is more fiercely competitive than the writing instruments business. With the combined market in excess of 3,500 million units per annum (Source: Writing Instruments Industry estimates) the biscuits is in the thick of a serious battle. Priya golds achievements, in such an environment, are many, impressive and astounding. By continuously introducing new products in the Indian marketplace, it has kept its nose ahead of the competition. It may be a historical fact that if there was a significant piece of writing in indebiscuitsdent India it was probably inked with a biscuits manufactured by Priya gold. PROMOTION

29

Priya gold built the brand on the strength of its product range and quality and by appealing to the fledgling nations desire to be seen as self-reliant. Priya gold's advertisements of the early years would matter-of-factly state: For the first time in India. This straight forward approach worked well. It laid the foundation for Priya gold's exponential growth in the 1970s and 1980s. The company also started, albeit unknowingly, the trend of celebrity endorsements in India. In the 1960s, it featured film stars, sportsmen and other celebrities for its writing instruments. Most of these were not paid endorsements since celebrities were not yet marketable commodities. However, once celebrities saw

themselves as brands and began to charge money, Priya gold, which was a small company at that time, got off the celebrity endorsement bandwagon.

By the early 1980s, the Indian market was becoming quite sophisticated and there were many players in each product category vying for a share of the consumer's mind. The time had

30

now come to launch and build brands, rather than just products.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
Research methodology is a systematic way, which consists of series of action steps, necessary to effectively carry out research and the desired sequencing to these steps. The marketing research is a process of involves a no. of inter-related activities, which overlap and do rigidly follow a particular sequence. It consists of the following steps:-

Formulating the objective of the study Designing the methods of data collection Selecting the sample plan Collecting the data Processing and analyzing the data Reporting the findings

Report of findings

RESEARCH DESIGN Research design specifies the methods and procedures for conducting a particular study. A research design is the arrangement of conditions for collection and analysis of the data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure.

51

Research design is broadly classified into three types as Exploratory Research Design Descriptive Research Design Causal Research Design I have chosen the descriptive research design.

DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH DESIGN: Descriptive research studies are those studies which are concerned with described the characteristics of particular individual.

In descriptive as well as in diagnostic studies, the researcher must be able to define clearly, what he wants to measure and must find adequate methods for measuring it along with a clear cut definition of population he want to study. Since the aim is to obtain complete and accurate information in the said studies, the procedure to be used must be carefully planned. The research design must make enough provision for protection against bias and must maximize reliability, with due concern for the
52

economical completion of the research study.

SAMPLE DESIGN A Sample Design is a definite plan for obtaining a sample from a given population. It refers to the technique to the procedure adopted in selecting items for the sampling design are as below:

SAMPLE SIZE Sample method Survey period

SAMPLE SIZE: The substantial portions of the target customer that are sampled to achieve reliable result are 100.

The cost and time limitation completed me to select 100 respondents as sample size SAMPLING METHOD: In this marketing research project, I am using
53

Random sampling method SAMPLE DESIGN As complete enumeration of all the members of the population (Member and Non-member) I have understate sampling technique. SAMPLE SIZE 100 Customers SAMPLE TYPE AREA SAMPLING Meerut SAMPLE SELECTION Simple random selection sampling

54

SAMPLE TECHNIQUE I have taken the Statistical tool of percentage method to analysis and interpretation of the collected data.

RANDOM SAMPLING: A random sample gives every unit of the population a known and non-zero probability of being selected. Since random sampling implies equal probability to every unit in the population, it is necessary that the selection of the sample must be free from human judgment.

There is some confusion between the two terms random sampling and unrestricted random sampling. In the latter case, each unit in the population has an equal chance of being selected in the sample. Such a sample is drawn with replacement, which means that the unit selected at each draw is replaced into the population before another draw is made from it, As such, a unit can be included more than once in the sample. Most statically

55

theory relates to unrestricted random sampling. In order to distinguish between these two sample. I.e. sample, without replacement and sample with replacement, the terms sample random sample and unrestricted random sample are used. If the latter is devised in such a manner that no unit can be included more than once, it will then be known as the simple random sampling.

It may be noted that while both sample random sampling and unrestricted random sampling give an equal probability to each unit of the population for being included in the sample, there are other sample design too which provide equal probability to the units. The process of randomness is the very core of simple and unrestricted random sampling. The selection of a sample must be free from bias, which can be ensured only when the process of selection is free from human judgment.

56

57

COLLECTION OF DATA

DATA COLLECTION The study was conducted by the means of personal interview

with respondents and the information given by them were directly recorded on questionnaire. For the purpose of analyzing the data it is necessary to collect the vital information. There are two types of data, this are Primary Data Secondary data PRIMARY DATA:Primary data can be collected through questionnaire. The questionnaire can be classified into four main types Structured non disguised questionnaire Structured disguised questionnaire. Non structured non disguised questionnaire Non structured disguised questionnaire.
58

For my market study, I have sleeted structured non-disguised questionnaire because my questionnaire is well structured, listing of questions are in a prearranged order and where the object of enquiry is revealed to the respondents.

To making a well-structured questionnaire, we have adopted three type of questions Obiscuits ended question Dichotomous questions Multiple choice questions These types of questions are easy to understand and easy to give required answers.

SECONDARY DATA:Secondary data means data that are already available i.e. they refer the data which have already been collected and analyzed by someone else. When the researcher utilizes secondary data, than he has to look into various sources from where h e can obtain them,
59

in this case he is certainly not confronted with the problems that are usually associated with the collection of original data. Secondary data may either be published data or unpublished data. Usually published data are available in: Various publications of the central, state and local government; Various publications of foreign government or of

international bodies and their subsidiary organizational; Technical and trade journals; Books, magazines and newspapers; Reports and publications of various associations connected with business san industry, stock exchanges etc.; Reports prepared by research scholars, universities,

economists etc; Public records and statistics, historical document and other source of published information. The source of unpublished data are many; they may be found in

60

diaries, letters, unpublished biographies and autobiographies and also may be available with scholars and research workers, trade associations, labor because and other public private individuals and organization. COLLECTION TECHNIQUE: Questionnaire method is used in collection the data.

61

62

DATA ANALYSIS
DATA PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS Processing & Analysis the collected data: - once the field survey is over and questionnaire have been received, the next task is to aggregate the data in a meaningful manner. A number of tables are prepare to bring out the main characteristics of the data. The researcher should have a well thought out framework for processing and analyzing data, and this should be done prior to the collection. it includes the following activities

(i) Editing: the first task in data processing is the editing. Editing is the process of examining errors and omissions in the collected data and making necessary corrections in the same.

(ii) Coding: coding is the procedure of classifying the answer to a question into meaningful categories. Coding is necessary to carry out the subsequent operations of tabulating and analyzing data. If coding is not done, it will not be possible to reduce a large number
63

of heterogeneous responses into meaningful categories with the result that the analysis of data would be weak and ineffective, and without proper focus.

(iii)Tabulation: tabulation comprises sorting of the data into different categories and counting the number of cases that belong to each category. The simplest way to tabulate is to count the number of responses to one question. This is also called universal tabulation. The analysis based on just one variable is obviously meager. Where two or more variables are involved in tabulation, it is called bivariate or multivariate tabulation. (iv) Analysis: after the all three above steps, the most important step is analysis of the data. Under this step, they can use the various tools of the analysis such as Central Tendency, Dispersion, Correlation co-efficient, Regression Analysis, Test of Hypothesis etc. Table 1.

INFERENCE

As note of the systems I perfect in itself, there are always weak points that bounds to crap in, thus instead of ignoring them, we should try to avoid them in totality in order to achieve the objectives of the organization.
