As our age progresses. However. With increasing population and income. This is however now changing with slow but steady growth in modern trade over the last 5 years which is expected to become two . the demand for milk is going to rise multifold in coming future.

With the increasing affluence. This certainly does not augur well for milk producers.Amul‟s commitment of making milk available to every corner of the country comes from the fact that milk is the source of complete nutrition. Milk comes as an elixir for these problems. however penetration of organised retail has been low. Also. the most frequent problems that we come across are declining bone density and deteriorating digestive system. foreign investments have increasingly been coming in the Food Processing Industry and these players have been targeting the new growth segments in order to establish their hold.

In summary. closure of small stores and opening of large retail chains displace just as many jobs as they create friendly. labour policies of large retailers have not been employee-friendly for instance. they would not be able to maintain the farmer's share in consumer price. Furthermore. Liberal FDI policies in retail would not benefit Government's share of taxes as they would remain same irrespective of the format of retail. For instance. Farmers in USA and UK get only 38% and 36% share of consumers' money spent on milk respectively as per the International Farm Comparison Network data. but helping a little girl get school education. this share of milk producers has declined from 52% to 38% in USA and from 56% to 36% in UK.

What we have experienced is that organized retail trade tends to be monopolistic. squeeze margins and always threaten the brands with cheaper substitutes. long credit period and arbitrary marketing expense. a mom put food on the table or a family repay a housing loan. it also affects community revenue by shifting away the money from the community. the large retailers will effectively kill innovation. There is heavy burden on manufacturer and marketer in terms of squeezed margin. the small retailer category of general trade in India that employs 32% of the Indian population. presentation. if largest and most reputed Indian corporate houses have invested in retailing in India. imports or finally in-store brands. we do not need to look to foreign investors to invest in Indian retail. Furthermore. As compared to that. In last 15 years.retailers as they seek more profits. SALES 6 . In our view. there has been practice of demanding more and more concessions and liberal policies from Government by the foreign organised retails. organized retail chains demand heavy discounts and rebates.

The NDP is expected to double our production in 15 years. it has been observed that poverty and deprivation is lesser. to meet the growing demand and keep prices affordable for consumers as well as increase returns for farmers. Its contribution to total agricultural output has increased from 15% in 1981-82 to 26% in 2010-11. Taking further our excellence in sales and marketing. supplies are unable to match demand. ROAD AHEAD India continues to be the largest milk producing nation. it still receives only 12% of total public expenditure on agriculture. share of private players has been continuously increasing. Thus. with production of 122 million MT in 2011-12. Most of this production is consumed domestically. I am pleased to note that with the National Dairy Plan (NDP). mainly due to deficiency of feed and fodder. Of late. Also. we need to ensure proper prices to farmers. However. This may be an alarming trend for farmers as well as consumers as private sector is known to capture profits and not serve both producers' and consumers' interests. Besides that. that it is the small and marginal farmers who are more dependent on livestock for income. the government is attempting to do the same.

It also aims to grow the organised sector to handle 65% of the marketable milk surplus. growth of this sector is stifled by absence of policy focus. To avoid this there is a need to increase milk production in the country. Also. Despite this. India's livestock productivity is 20-60% lower than global average. milk processing industry is growing in India and about one third of dairy sector is organised. substantial part of the increased production needs to be converted to value-added products. it is well discernable from Planning Commission Report 2011.During the year we have also won the "Green Globe Foundation Award" at the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit 2012 for our mass tree plantation drive and contribution to environment by the milk producers of Gujarat. Currently. from current level of 11 . Wherever contribution of livestock to farm income is higher. To avoid this drifting away from dairying. Also this would increase contribution of co-operatives in marketable milk surplus compared to private players thus strengthening our rural economy and the livelihood of our farmers. This is another reason for increasing milk prices. This would also modernise the country's dairy sector. Economic contribution of live-stock surpassed that of food grains in 2002-03 and has since remained about 5-10% higher as per scientists at NCAER. yet at times. This has been putting pressure on milk prices as the deficit has to be met through costly occasional imports of milk and milk products. Co-operatives form 60% of the organised sector. to reduce dependence on occasional imports. This has led to doubling of fodder prices. depending upon the breed of cattle. it is important to improve productivity and production of milk in the country. This is about 16% of world milk production. improvement in wages due to NREGA and increasing industrialisation which is leading to migration of people have resulted in lack of interest of people in taking up dairying.

This has made such products affordable for the common man to include them in his daily consumption. However. India has graduated from milk deficit country to largest milk producer in world. Considering dairy as a part of agriculture and exempting it from income tax. etc. butter. tax on the co-operatives was lower than the corporate rates and this difference should be maintained now as well. However. would incentivise the farmer for milk production. In the interest of consumers from all sections of society. boost milk products and improve consumers' health by way of better nutrition. the agriculture income is exempted from Income tax whereas income earned by farmers from supply of milk is taxable. Further. I have already mentioned how agriculture and dairying goes hand-in-hand.30%. We need to explore new opportunities and markets. When we plan to improve productivity as well as production. various expenditure on fertiliser.

Union Ministers for Finance and Agriculture on this. ghee. etc. we feel that co-operative organisations like GCMMF and other state dairy federations who undertake commercial operations on behalf of millions of milk producers of India. Thus. However. our exports of milk and milk products still remain insignificant in comparison to the existing players. so as to increase consumer demand. the income from supply of milk helps small and marginal farmers to survive at the time of crop failure. by 2021-22. ice cream. Taxing is important as this way co-operatives contribute to the development of the country by way of paying income tax.

Observation and Finding In order to get a brief about market of amul dahi and lassee I went to lower parel. For eg. pedder road. marine drive . There was a shortage of amul butter in previous year so the customer switched to nutralite butter and once the customer shifted to that brand the retailer forcefully offered nutralite to those customers. which forces the customers to switch to other brands. 24 . I have also observed that there is a shortage of dahi during the peak season. Mahalakshmi. For eg. I met one retailer who said directly that if the competitor of amul arises then it will be very difficult for amul to retain its market share because Amul‟s products require refrigerator and the same is not provided. Customers & retailers of lower parel were not that loyal to Amul as compared to their loyalty towards most of the Maharashtrian brands such as „Chitle‟. I observed a mixed response or perception about the brand loyalty. But at the same time when I visited to grant road and pedder road people were only demanding Amul dahi or lassee. The margins offered by amul in dahi and lassee to retailers are quite low as compared to other competitors even then the retailers are keeping its products which is a big thing. grant road etc.

During that I went to each store under our distributor(Jinver enterprises) with their salesman. With the help of that we distributed approximately 150 pieces/day for four days. of customers. This lead to an increase in the sales of amul regarding lassee as well as demand for the same was created. We did a research on existing stores regarding their performance in terms of sales and no. During promotional activity we offered 12 lassees at a price of rs10 only. Then we set a benchmark among existing stores and did our promotional activity from such stores.Promotional activity /In Shop Avtivity I started with a market research till two weeks. 25 . In shop activity gave a good boast in the sales of lassee. we tried to find out the type of customer base they serve. We majorly emphasized on finding out the market potential for lassee and competitive pressure by other rivals such as Mahanand.

 Launching of lassee was too late in the market. As well as for dahi if there are bulk demand by the retailer.Findings/Drawbacks  Puffing: The biggest issue was puffing of lassee packs.  Promotional activity wasn‟t huge enough so as to catch everyone‟s attention  Under my area (Pedder road. The major reason for that was change in temperature.  Supply chain: it takes 3-4 days for the product to reach the distributor & then 1-2 days more till retailer. We also found out that its competitors are providing retailers with refrigerators and some other stuff too for their comfort.  Attractive schemes should be provided to retailers for the launch of new products. Because in mid June the rainfall affected the sales.  Lassee should be sold in tetra packs to make it more hygienic and presentable. 26 .  Replacement policy (Dahi): we found out that it is very important to have a good replacement policy for perishable products to attract retailers as other competitors are fairly replacing their products quite easily as compared to amul. With a good and quick replacement policy.  Margin: Margins are too low to attract new retailers as compared to its competitors. which is very important for retaining them.  Variety: only few flavours are available as compared to others. Recommendations  Amul should provide a suitable fridge to accommodate its own products. Malabar hill) their was an association of all the retailers. So it was very difficult to launch a new product.  Improvement in supply chain by using more efficient and faster means of transport.
