INTRODUCTION

The study of this project is to understand the offering which are made available by Haldirams and Bikaner, and also there is comparative analysis of both the brands. HALDIRAM a name associated with discerning consumers for sweets and namkeens for the past six decades in India and abroad. It made its modest start in the beginning of way back in 1941 in Bikaner in the State of Rajasthan. The brand name "HALDIRAM ... Preparing this project I went to each and every canteen owner NCR because we were doing only institutional market. It include, schools canteens collage canteens, hospitals canteens cinema halls shopping malls big bazaar, and others institutional canteens where chips and namkeens are sold. I have collected about all the product of Haldiram but worked basically for chips and Namkeens segments. I went to the canteens and saw the chips and Namkeens there we

observe the following things 1) Whether our product is available

or not at that canteen. If not then we saw of which company product is available.

2)

How

much

sale

is

of

that

particular counter and what the sales volume that counter may give to us. 3) particular counter? 4) of chips and Namkeens. And if we get our product, we used to asked the sales volume, response of consumer, delivery and thus came to know interest of retailers. Has that counter so many brands What is the strength of that

If we dint get our product we said about us, about our products, about the margin what we give to retailers, about the facilities, about added value, we make them aware about margin difference, comparing the competitors product and margin provided by them. And then we made them understand the extra facilities and unique selling point of our product and make them ready to sale our product. Thus we developed the market for Haldirams product. After this I saw the competitors product (quantity) and asked the strength. We also counted the signage and a stand of all the competitors company and Haldirams which is at that particular store.

Then analyses the data which was collected from market. And then come to a conclusion on the basis of that analyzed data and information. After all it becomes possible to make a meaningful and useful report.

Freedom fighter Lokmanya Tilak started the custom of Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav (public festival) in Maharashtra, during the Indian Independence fight against the British. The aim behind this was to bring the people close to each other. From then on, this festival is celebrated in almost every lane, housing society and area in Maharashtra and thus making Ganesh Chaturthi a public festival.

products. Definition- Product is a bundle of utilities. A product can be anything which satisfies the needs and wants of the customer. A good, idea, method, information, object, or service that is the end result of a process and serves as a need or want satisfier. It is usually

a bundle of tangible andintangible attributes (benefits, features, functions, u ses) that a seller offers to a buyer for purchase. 2. Law: A commercially distributed good that is (1) tangible personal

property, (2) output or result of a fabrication, manufacturing, or production process, and (3) passes through a distribution channel before being

consumed or used. 3. Marketing: A good or service that most closely meets the requirements of a particular market or segment and yield enough profit to justify its

continued existence.

48

Levels

of

products

Core

benefit-

The

fundamental

need

or

want(hunger) that consumers satisfy by consuming the product or service. Consider what we have talked about many times in this tutorial; people make buying decisions that satisfy their needs. While many needs are addressed by the consumption of a product or service, some needs are not. For instance, customers may need to be perceived highly by other members of their group or need a product that is easy to use or need a risk-free purchase. In each of these cases, and many more, the core product itself is the benefit the customer receives from using the product. In some cases these core benefits are offered by the product itself (e.g., floor cleaner) while in other cases the benefit is offered by other aspects of the product (e.g., the can containing the floor cleaner that makes it easier to spread the product). Consequently, at the very heart of all product decisions is determining the key or core benefits a product will provide. From this decision, the rest of the product offering can be developed. Expected benefit-The set of attributes or characteristics that buyers normally expect and agree to when they purchase a product. Augmented benefit- Inclusion of additional features, benefits, attributes or related services that serve to differentiate the product from its competitors. Marketers often surround their actual products with goods and services that provide additional value to the customers purchase. While these factors may not be key reasons leading customers to purchase (i.e., not core benefits), for some the inclusion of these items strengthens the purchase decision while for others failure to include
49

these may cause the customer not to buy. Items considered part of the augmented product include:

Customer Service This consists of additional services that support the

customers needs including offering training and assistance via telephone or online.

Complementary Products The value of some product purchases can

be enhanced with add-on products, such as items that make the main product easier to use.

Accessibility How customers obtain the product can affect its perceived

value depending on such considerations as how easy it is to obtain (e.g., stocked at nearby store, delivered directly to office), the speed at which it can be obtained, and the likelihood it will be available when needed.

2.To understand the Product line and Merchandise mix- Product Line :Total how many products company have . A product line refers to a number of products that are related and developed by the same manufacturer. Product lines are not to be confused with product bundling, which combines various items into one type of product. Items within a product line generally share the same basic theme, and with the help of a successful marketing plan these products can be entirely effective. Frequently, a product line includes different products that are offered to the public at varying price points. This way, a manufacturer or company can ensure that all products
50

within a line will be purchased by all kinds of people. Product line extension refers to any additional products that may be added to a current product line.

Much has been, is and will be made of how important product merchandising is, but from a purely definition standpoint, the idea of product merchandising means you put the best face on your product, giving it the widest dispersal of information to capture the largest market share you possibly can. In short, you use a shotgun blast to hunt squirrels.

Yes, I know the visual there might be difficult to get out of your mind, but THAT'S THE POINT. Creating a visual, whether literally or figuratively, is what product merchandising is all about. At Net Blazon, we're well aware that a picture is worth a thousand words and the more images of a product, the better, but good images is only one aspect of good product merchandising Product width : different category in which the company divide its product. Product width refers to the number of product lines sold by one company. The product line refers to the same kind of product but falls in same categories products are similar in their main character. sum total of all of these product line is width of product mix. Product depth : under one product how many sub-products company provides or how many varieties company have for that product . The no of variants of a particular product is called product depth.
51

Merchandise mix- The breadth and depth of the products carried by retailers. Also known as Product Assortment. The combination of goods that a store sells. The activity of promoting the sale of goods at retail.

Stages of the Consumer Buying Process Six Stages to the Consumer Buying Decision Process (For complex decisions). Actual purchasing is only one stage of the process.

desired state and the actual condition. Deficit in assortment of products. Hunger--Food. Hunger stimulates your need to eat.

53

Information search-- Internal search, memory. External search if you need more information. Friends and relatives (word of mouth). Marketer dominated sources;

comparison shopping; public sources etc. A successful information search leaves a buyer with possible

alternatives, the evoked set. Hungry, want to go out and eat, evoked set is Chinese food Indian food burger king klondike kates etc

o o o o

2. Evaluation of Alternatives--need to establish criteria for evaluation,

features the buyer wants or does not want. Rank/weight alternatives or resume search. May decide that you want to eat something spicy, Indian gets highest rank etc.

If not satisfied with your choice then return to the search phase. Can you think of another restaurant? Look in the yellow pages etc. Information from different sources may be treated differently.

Marketers try to influence by "framing" alternatives.

Research Findings

72

There are no any wall paintings or banners in canteens as signage of Haldirams and Bikanervala product while the competitors are

providing many facilities like this. The first and the major problem is that the company does not have direct and permanent contract with retailers. It is general complain that there is a big communication gap between the company and the retailers and no one is to solve their problem. The second problem of retailers is non availability of quick response of distributors. Distributors do not send the ready stock and thus the delivery man suffers the problems when the retailer demands in emergency. One of the major problems is i.e. they are the price difference. They are getting same product in different price from others suppliers (the other suppliers are giving on less price and schemes) thus this problem is very big for distributors and suppliers both. Second problem is wholesale market; the wholesale market is creating problem entering in distributors areas. The problem faced by the distributors is lack of stands in market. This problem disturbs the distributors and retailers both. Retailers demand stands to distributors because executive of others company does not allow to use their stands to put our product.

The amounts of sales or sales volume may different in different months. or of the country or whole

Company

should

consider

the

problems

of

retailers

and

canteens owner. Company should problems of distributors. Resettlement of dispute like non payments and wrong

commitment problems is necessary by another executive. Stand should be provided to needy retailers because another companys executive creates problem.
78

Company should give the stands and racks to each and every counters where its product is sold.

Company should prevent the interference of distributor in each others areas.

Company should prevent the undercutting in market. Company should prevent the wholesale disturbance. Company should give the incentives to its executives as extra benefits after salary.

Company should listen and care of sales executive. Company should recognize the problems in market. The very necessary work is market screening and recognizing the strength and weaknesses of competitors.

Company should spend some amount on advertisement of its products because the competitors are using celebrities as their promoter in ads. For Kurkure Juhi Chawla and for Lays Saif Ali Khan.

Company should provide display to canteens and cafeterias. Company should paints the walls of cafeterias time to time because its competitors do this, this will bound the retailers to sale our product.
