Mr. BHAVESH VANPARIA
Cadbury India's five factories in India churn out close to 8,000 tones of chocolate and the company sells a million bars every day. But Bharat Puri, managing director of Cadbury India will never forget the batch of Dairy Milk chocolates numbered 28F311 manufactured last year at the company's plant in Thane, near Mumbai. That was the worm-infested batch that triggered a crisis for the company that had always prided itself on its squeaky clean image. The timing of the controversy couldn't have been worse. Festival season sales (Cadbury sells almost 1,000 tonnes of chocolates during Diwali) plummeted 30 per cent. Until then, in the country's FMCG sector plagued by slow, low single digit top line and bottom-line growth, Cadbury was a sweet exception. But its net profit in 2003 dipped 37 per cent to Rs 45.6 crore (Rs 456 million) as compared to a 21 per cent increase the previous year. Now, a year later, Cadbury says that consumers have long forgotten the controversy and are back to their merry chocolate-chomping ways. "Sales are back to the pre-controversy levels. Consumer confidence in the product is back and there has been a steady progression in sales," says Sanjay Purohit, head (marketing) Cadbury India. The company expects to close the year with a high double digit sales growth. COMPANY OVERVIEW Cadbury began its operations in 1948 by importing chocolates and then re-packing them before distribution in the Indian market. After 59 years of existence, it today has five company-owned manufacturing facilities at Thane, Induri (Pune) and Malanpur
(Gwalior), Bangalore and Baddi (Himachal Pradesh) and 4 sales offices (New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai). The corporate office is in Mumbai.
Our core purpose "Working together to create brands people love" captures the spirit of what we are trying to achieve as a business. We collaborate and work as teams to convert products into brands. Simply put, we spread happiness! Currently Cadbury India operates in three sectors viz. Chocolate Confectionery, Milk Food Drinks and in the Candy category. In the Chocolate Confectionery business, Cadbury has maintained its undisputed leadership over the years. Some of the key brands are Cadbury Dairy Milk, 5 Star, Perk, Éclairs and Celebrations. Cadbury enjoys a value market share of over 70% - the highest Cadbury brand share in the world! Our flagship brand Cadbury Dairy Milk is considered the "gold standard" for chocolates in India. The pure taste of CDM defines the chocolate taste for the Indian consumer.
In the Milk Food drinks segment our main product is Bourn vita - the leading Malted Food Drink (MFD) in the country. Similarly in the medicated candy category Halls is the undisputed leader. We recently entered the gums category with the launch of our worldwide dominant bubble gum brand Bubbaloo. Bubbaloo is sold in 25 countries worldwide. The Cadbury India Brand Strategy has received consistent support through simple but imaginative extensions to product categories and distribution. A good example of this is the development of Bytes. Crispy wafers filled with coca cream in the form of a bagged snack, Bytes is positioned as "The new concept of sweet snacking". It delivers the taste of chocolate in the form of a light snack, and thus heralds the entry of Cadbury India into the growing bagged Snack Market, which has been dominated until now by Salted Bagged Snack Brands. Byte was first launched in South India in 2003. Since 1965 Cadbury has also pioneered the development of cocoa cultivation in India. For over two decades, we have worked with the Kerala Agriculture University to undertake cocoa research and released clones, hybrids that improve the cocoa yield. Our Cocoa team visits farmers and advises them on the cultivation aspects from planting to harvesting. We also conduct farmers meetings & seminars to educate them on Cocoa cultivation aspects. Our efforts have increased cocoa productivity and touched the lives of thousands of farmers.

The story of Cadbury Dairy Milk started way back in 1905 at Bournville, U.K., but the journey with chocolate lovers in India began in 1948. The variants Fruit & Nut, Crackle and Roast Almond, combine the classic taste of Cadbury Dairy Milk with a variety of ingredients and are very popular amongst teens & adults. Cadbury Dairy Milk has exciting products on offer - Cadbury Dairy Milk Wowie, chocolate with Disney characters embossed in it, and Cadbury Dairy Milk 2 in 1, a delightful combination of milk chocolate and white chocolate. Giving consumers an exciting reason to keep coming back into the fun filled world of Cadbury. Today, Cadbury Dairy Milk alone holds 30% value share of the Indian chocolate market.
the second largest after Cadbury Dairy Milk with a market share of 14%, Cadbury 5 Star moves from strength to strength every year by increasing its user base. Launched in 1969 as a bar of chocolate that was hard outside with soft caramel nougat inside, Cadbury 5 Star has re-invented itself over the years to keep satisfying the consumers taste for a high quality & different chocolate eating experience.
One of the key properties that Cadbury 5 Star was associated with was its classic Gold colour. And through the passage of time, this was one property that both, the brand and the consumer stuck to as a valuable association. More recently, to give consumers another reason to come into the Cadbury 5 Star fold, Cadbury 5 Star Crunchy was launched. The same delicious Cadbury 5 Star was now available with a dash of rice crispies. PERK
Cadbury launched Perk in 1996. With its light chocolate and wafer construct, Cadbury Perk targeted the casual snacking space that was dominated primarily by chips & wafers. With the rise of more value-for-money brands in the wafer chocolate segment, Cadbury Perk unveiled two new offerings - Perk XL and XXL. In 2004, with an added dose of 'Real Cadbury Dairy Milk' and an 'improved wafer', Perk became even more irresistible
Cadbury Celebrations was aimed at replacing traditional gifting options like Mithai and dry- fruits during festive seasons. Cadbury Celebrations is available in several assortments: An assortment of chocolates like 5 Star, Perk, Gems, Dairy Milk and Nutties and rich dry fruits enrobed in Cadbury dairy milk chocolate in 5 variants, Almond magic, raisin magic, cashew magic, nut butterscotch and caramels.

5. FORECASTING AND ESTIMATING DEMAND.

So it is very important for the Cadbury dairy milk to be upto date with the consumers day to day changing choices. And survey of buyers intention is one of the way of estimating the future demand of the product. In such survey the Cadbury choclates prefer to ask questions like “How many times do you prefer to buy a Cadbury dairy milk in a week?” “what you think about price of Cadbury dairy milk?”
Composite of Sales Force Opinions: In this type of forecasting, due to the impractical survey of buyers interviewing, the Cadbury dairy milk may ask its various sales representatives to estimate their future sales.

6. CONSUMER BUYING BEHAVIOR FACTORS AFFECTING TO CADBURY DAIRY MILK.
All marketing starts with the consumer. So consumer is a very important person to a marketer. Consumer decides what to purchase, for whom to purchase, why to purchase, from where to purchase, and how much to purchase. In order to become a successful marketer, he must know the liking or disliking of the customers. He must also know the time and the quantity of goods and services, a consumer may purchase, so that he may store the goods or provide the services according to the likings of the consumers. Gone are the days when the concept of market was let the buyer’s beware or when the market was mainly the seller’s market. Now the whole concept of consumer’s sovereignty prevails. The manufacturers produce and the sellers sell whatever the consumer likes. In this sense, “consumer is the supreme in the market”. As consumers, we play a very vital role in the health of the economy local, national or international. The decision we make concerning our consumption behavior affect the demand for the basic raw materials, for the transportation, for the banking, for the production; they effect the employment of workers and deployment of resources and success of some industries and failures of others. Thus marketer must understand this.
Preference (or "taste") is a concept, used in the social sciences, particularly economics. It assumes a real or imagined "choice" between alternatives and the possibility of rank ordering of these alternatives, based on happiness, satisfaction, gratification, enjoyment, utility they provide. More generally, it can be seen as a source of motivation. In cognitive sciences, individual preferences enable choice of objectives/goals.
The study of the consumer preference not only focuses on how and why consumers make buying decision, but also focuses on how and why consumers make choice of the goods they buy and their evaluation of these goods after use. So for success of any company or product promotion it is very necessary to depart its concentration towards consumer preference

So the Cadbury dairy milk are Impulse goods. 3. Emergency: These types of goods are purchased when there is a need is urgent. But for buying Cadbury dairy milk there is no such type of emergency.

Over the next few weeks Cadbury will work towards introducing either a heatsealed or a flow-pack packaging that offers a high level of resistance to infestation from improper storage. Meanwhile, Cadbury India has announced a three-step strategic programme involving the distribution chain and retail channels so as to ensure that the product reaching the consumer is of high quality. Called Project Vishwas, the programme aims at building awareness among retailers about storage requirements for Cadbury products, assistance in improving storage conditions at the retail end and strengthening packaging of the Cadbury Dairy Milk range. This will be implemented immediately in Maharashtra and will be extended nationwide thereafter. Bharat Puri, managing director, Cadbury India, said, " We take seriously our responsibility to give our consumers a product that adheres to high quality standards. The three-step programme is a result of our discussions with consumers, retail partners and the Food and Drugs Administration in Maharashtra. We are confident that this will improve the consumers trust in our products." Also, the company will reduce the bulk packaging from 60 bars to 22 bars. Each bulk pack will be shrink-wrapped. This is expected to minimise the sale of loose packs to the retail trade. Over the next two weeks, a team of trained quality control managers along with over 300 sales people will complete a thorough check of over 50,000 outlets across Maharashtra that stock and sell Cadbury products.
