    INTRODUCTION

    BACKGROUND :-

    Soft drinks are enormously popular beverages consisting primarily of carbonated water,sugar, and flavorings. Nearly 200 nations enjoy the sweet, sparkling soda with an

    annual consumption of more than 34 billion gallons. Soft drinks rank as America's

    favorite beverage segment, representing 25% of the total beverage market. In the early

    1990s percapita consumption of soft drinks in the U.S. was 49 gallons, 15 gallons more

    than the next most popular beverage, water.

    The roots of soft drinks extend to ancient times. Two thousand years ago Greeks and

    Romans recognized the medicinal value of mineral water and bathed in it for relaxation,

    a practice that continues to the present. In the late 1700s Europeans and Americans

    began drinking the sparkling mineral water for its reputed therapeutic benefits. The first

    imitation mineral water in the U.S. was patented in 1809. It was called "soda water" and

    consisted of water and sodium bicarbonate mixed with acid to add effervescence.

    Pharmacists in America and Europe experimented with myriad ingredients in the hope

    of finding new remedies for various ailments. Already the flavored soda waters were

    hailed as brain tonics for curing headaches, hangovers, and nervous afflictions.

    Pharmacies equipped with "soda fountains" featuring the medicinal soda water soon

    developed into regular meeting places for local populations. Flavored soda water gained

    popularity not only for medicinal benefits but for the refreshing taste as well. The market

    expanded in the 1830s when soda water was first sold in glass bottles. Filling and

    capping the gaseous liquid in containers was a difficult process until 1850, when a

    manual filling and corking machine was successfully designed. The term "soda pop"

    originated in the 1860s from the popping sound of escaping gas as a soda bottle was

    opened.

    New soda flavors constantly appeared on the market. Some of the more popular flavors

    were ginger ale, sarsaparilla, root beer, lemon, and other fruit flavors. In the early 1880s

    pharmacists experimented with powerful stimulants to add to soda water, including cola

    nuts and coca leaves. They were inspired by Bolivian Indian workers who chewed coca

    leaves to ward off fatigue and by West African workers who chewed cola nuts as a

    stimulant. In 1886 an Atlanta pharmacist, John Pemberton, took the fateful step of

    combining coca with cola, thus creating what would become the world's most famous

    drink, "Coca-Cola". The beverage was advertised as refreshing as well as therapeutic:

    "French Wine ColaIdeal Nerve and Tonic Stimulant." A few years later another

    pharmacist, Caleb Bradham, created "Pepsi-Cola" in North Carolina. Although the name

    was a derivation of pepsin, an acid that aids digestion, Pepsi did not advertise the

    beverage as having therapeutic benefits. By the early 20th century, most cola

    companies focused their advertising on the refreshing aspects of their drinks.

    As flavored carbonated beverages gained popularity, manufacturers struggled to find an

    appropriate name for the drinks. Some suggested "marble water," "syrup water," and

    "aerated water." The most appealing name, however, was "soft drink," adapted in the

    hopes that soft drinks would ultimately supplant the "hard liquor" market. Although the

    idea never stuck, the term soft drink did.

    Until the 1890s soft drinks were produced manually, from blowing bottles individually to

    filling and packaging. During the following two decades automated machinery greatly

    increased the productivity of soft drink plants. Probably the most important development

    in bottling technology occurred with the invention of the "crown cap" in 1892, which

    successfully contained the carbon dioxide gas in glass bottles. The crown cap design

    endured for 70 years.

    The advent of motor vehicles spawned further growth in the soft drink industry. Vending

    machines, serving soft drinks in cups, became regular fixtures at service stations across

    the country. In the late 1950s aluminum beverage cans were introduced, equipped with

    convenient pull-ring tabs and later with stay-on tabs. Light-weight and break-resistant

    plastic bottles came into use in the 1970s, though it was not until 1991 that the soft drink

    industry used plastic PET (polyethylene terephthalate) on a wide scale.

    Soft drink manufacturers have been quick to respond to consumer preferences. In 1962

    diet colas were introduced in response to the fashion of thinness for women.

    COCA COLA INTERNATIONAL

    HISTORY:-

    Coca-Cola Enterprises, established in 1986, is a young company by the

    standards of the Coca-Cola system. Yet each of its franchises has a strong

    heritage in the traditions of Coca-Cola that is the foundation for this Company.

    The Coca-Cola Company traces its beginning to 1886, when an Atlanta

    pharmacist, Dr. John Pemberton , began to produce Coca-Cola syrup for sale in

    fountain drinks. However the bottling business began in 1899 when two

    Chattanooga businessmen, Benjamin F. Thomas and Joseph B. Whitehead ,

    secured the exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola for most of the United

    States from The Coca-Cola Company.

    The Coca-Cola bottling system continued to operate as independent, local

    businesses until the early 1980s when bottling franchises began to consolidate.

    In 1986, The Coca-Cola Company merged some of its company-owned

    operations with two large ownership groups that were for sale, the John T.

    Lupton franchises and BCI Holding Corporation's bottling holdings, to form

    Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. The Company offered its stock to the public onNovember 21, 1986, at a split-adjusted price of $5.50 a share. On an annual

    basis, total unit case sales were 880,000 in 1986.

    In December 1991, a merger between Coca-Cola Enterprises and the Johnston

    Coca-Cola Bottling Group, Inc. (Johnston) created a larger, stronger Company,

    again helping accelerate bottler consolidation. As part of the merger, the senior

    management team of Johnston assumed responsibility for managing the

    Company, and began a dramatic, successful restructuring in 1992.Unit case

    sales had climbed to 1.4 billion, and total revenues were $5 billion.

    COCA COLA NOW :-

    In 1886, Coca-Cola brought refreshment to patrons of a small Atlanta pharmacy. Now

    well into its second century, the Company's goal is to provide magic every time

    someone drinks one of its more than 400 brands. Coca-Cola has fans from Boston to

    Budapest to Bahrain, drinking brands such as Ambasa, Vegitabeta and Frescolita. In

    the remotest comers of the globe, you can still find Coca-Cola.

    Coca-Cola is committed to local markets, paying attention to what people from different

    cultures and backgrounds like to drink, and where and how they want to drink it. With its

    bottling partners, the Company reaches out to the local communities it serves, believing

    that Coca-Cola exists to benefit and refresh everyone it touches.

    Coca Cola enjoys the privilege of being the largest selling soft drink company in

    the world. Its product Coke, Fanta Limca, Thums-Up, Sprite and Maaza are well known

    worldwide and are sidely regarded as top, most brands in their respective flavor

    segments. Soft drink industry is ballooning in India with continuously growth rate that

    swells more every year.

    In S.G.A. (sales generating assets) Coca-Cola is leading the market in providing

    the maximum number of cooling equipments i.e. viz cooler, family fridges and E.B.C.

    (electro bottle cooler) to their retailer. Coca-Cola is also ahead of Pepsi in providing

    signages i.e. glow signs and dealers boards to the retailers.

    Since the Good service, advertising and superior promotional strategies from the

    basic rule for survival in the, all the companies are trying to perform their best on these

    front. Coca-Cola is the leader of this front also. It provides the better service to the

    retailers that its competitors airs superior quality advertisement and launches better

    sales promotion schemes into the market. Gut to maintain the position and to improve it

    Story of Soft Drinks

    Segmented of Soft Drinks:-

    The Soft Drinks can be segmented on the

    basis of point of purchase or the basis of type of products. The story of Soft Drinks in

    Fascinating. Since the beginning of life the most pressing need of all living beings is

    food and sweet juice when cut open, ditto the watermelon and fresh coconuts. Man

    learnt the Secrets of these Sources and used them as additional pleasant aid drinks

    besides water. As year passed in thousand, man tried to imitate nature in preparing

    these drinks so as to use them as well.

    As results of laborious Search in 1772, Joseph Priestly combined carbon dioxide withwater and artificial produced directed water bubbling with gas spread quickly and

    parched mouth begin to consume this. The Segmentation on the basis of point of

    purchase divides the market into two parts-Onpremise-80% of the Consumption of Soft

    drinks is done. Premise i.e.- Restaurants, Railways station, Cinema Hall etc.

    AT HOME :-

    The rest of 25% of the market compromises of the soft drinks

    purchased for consumption at home.

    The market can also be segmented on the basis of products. The segmented could be

    present as follows->

    This account for 62 % of the total Soft Drinks at all India Level. The Brands that falls in

    these categories are PEPSI, Thumsup, and coke.

    Non-Cola segmented, which can be further, divided as orange: This segment has 19 %

    share of the total market. Miranda orange (of Pepsi), Fanta & Gold Spot (Both of the

    Coke) and Crush represent the orange segment.

    Lime : This segment represent 14 % of the total market. Cokes Limca and Pepsis

    Mirinda fall in these categories.

    The market leader is close to 70 % market share of this segment but Sprite has

    considerably cut into this market

  • 7/31/2019 Final Prjct Prashant

    7/57

    Mango : Slice Mangola and MAZA are leading Mango drinks.

    Mango drinks accounts for about 3 % of the soft drink market. There is very thin line of

    difference between the clear and cloudy lime.

    The most obvious features is that clear lime has to be bottled in green bottle as sunlight

    harms the drink and change the taste.

    Soft Drinks industriesAn Overview :-

    It all began in 1886, when a tree legged brass kettle in Hohn Styth pembertons

    backyard in Atlanta was brewing the first P of marketing leged.

    Unaware the pharmacist has given birth to a caromel syrup, which is now the chief

    ingredient of the worlds favorite drinks. The syrup combined with carbonated the soft

    drink market. It is estimated that this drink is served with carbonated the soft drink

    market. It is estimated that drink is served more than one thousand million times in a

    day.

    Equally oblivious to the historic value of his actions was Frank IX. Robinson, his partner

    and book keeper. Pemberton and Robinson laid the first foundation of this beverage

    when an average nine drinks per day to begins with, upping volumes as sales grew.

    In 1984, this beverage got into bottle, courtesy a candy merchant from Mississippi. By

    the 1950s Colas were a daily consumption item, stored in houses hold fridges. Soon

    were born other non-cola variants of this product like orange and lemon.

    Now, the soft drink industry has been dominated by three major player---- 1) The New York based Pepsi Co. Inc.

    2) The Atlanta based Coca Cola Co.

    3) The united Kingdom Based Cadbury Schweppes

    Through out the glove these major players have been battling it. Out for a bigger chunk

    of the ever-growing cold drink market. Now this battle has begun in India too. India is

    now the part of cold drink war. Gone are days of Ramesh Chauhan, Indias one time

    Cola.

    King and his bouts of pistol shooting expected now to hear the boon of cannons when

    the Coca Cola and Pepsi co. battle it out for, as the Jordon goes a bigger share of

    throat.

    By buying over local competition, the two America Cola giants have cleared up the

    arena and are packing all their power behind building the Indian franchisee of their

    globe gridline brands. The huge amount invested in fracture has never been seen

    before. Both players seen an enormous potential in his country where swigging a

    carbonated beverage is still considered a treat, virtually a luxury. Consequently, by

    world standards Indias per capita consumption of the cold drinks as going by survey

    results is rock bottom, less than over Neighbors Pakistan & Bangladesh, where it is four

    times as much.

    Behind the type, in an effort invisible to consumer Pepsi pumps in Rs 3000 Crores

    (1994) to add muscle to its infrastructure in bottling and distribution. This is apart from

    money that companys franchised bottles spend in upgrading their plants all this has

    contributed to substantial gains in the market. In colas, Pepsi is already market leader

    and in certain cities like Delhi, Pepsi retailers are on one side & all the other colas put

    together on the other. While coke executive scruff at Pepsis claims as well as targets,

    industry observes are of the view that Pepsi has definitely stolen over its competitors

    coke.

    Apart from number, Pepsi has made qualitative gains. The foremost is its image. This

    image turn around is no small achievement, considering that since it was

    established in 1989, taking the hardship route prior to liberalization and weighed down

    by export commitment.

    Now, at present as there are three major players coke, Pepsi and Cadbury and there is

    stiff competition between first two, both Pepsi and Coke have started, sponsoring local

    events and staging frequent consumer promotion campaigns. As the mega event of this

    century has started, and the marketers are using this events- world cup football, cricket

    events and many more other events.

    Like Pepsi, Coke is picking up equity in its bottles to guarantees their financial support;

    one side coke is trying to increases its popularity through.

    On the other side of coin Pepsi has introduces AMITABH BACHCHAN for capturing

    the lemon market through MIRINDAlemon with Zor Ka Jhatka Dheere Se Lage?.

    But no doubt that UK based is also Cadbury is also recognizing its presence. So there is

    real crush in the soft drink market, with launch of the carbonated organize drink Crush,

    few year ago in Delhi, the first in a series of a launches, Cadbury Schweppes beverage

    India (CSBI) has planned.

    The world third largest soft drinks marketers all over the country. CSBI wholly owned

    subsidiary of the London based $ 6.52 billion. Cadbury Schweppes is hopping that

    crush is going well and well not suffer that samefate as the Rs. 175 crore Cadbury

    indias apple drink Apella. SBI is now with orange (crush), and Schweppes soda in the

    market.

    As orange drinks are the smallest of non-cola categories that in Rs. 1100 crore market

    with 10 % market share and cola having 50 % is followed by Lemon segment with 25%.

    The success of soft drinks industry depends upon 4 major factories viz..

    1. Availability 2.Visibility 3. Cooling 4. Range

    Availability :-

    It means that the presence of a particular brand at any retailers. If a product

    is now available at any retailers and the competitors brands are available, the

    consumer will go for at because generally the consumption of any soft drink is an

    impulse decision and not predetermined one.

    Visibility :- it is the presences felts, if any outlets has a particular brand of soft drinkssay-Pepsi Cola and this brands is not displays in the retailers, then its availability is of

    no use.

    The soft drinks must be shown off properly and attractively so as to catch the attention

    of the consumer immediately Pepsi achieves visibility by providing glow sign boards

    10/57

    ,hoardings, calendars etc. to the outlets. It also includes various stands to display Pepsi

    and other flavors of the company.

    Cooling :- As the soft drinks are consumed chilled so cooling them plays a vital role

    in boosting up the sales. The brands, which is available chilled, gets more sale then the

    one, which is not, even if it more preferred one.

    Range:- This is the last but not the least factor, which affects the sale of the products

    of a particular company ,Range availability means the availability of the all flavors in all

    sizes.

    COMPANY PROFILE

    Coca Cola India is American Multinational Company having its corporate Office in

    Atlanta America, Coca Cola is known World Wide, Coca Cola was born in 1887. After

    economic liberalization in 1991 many MNCs came in India.

    India is an emerging market, which means that low consumption coupled with big

    population numbers that adds up to high potential demand.

    Coke is continuing to stay with multi-brand strategy as it enhance company ability to

    leverage self space at the retail outlets; it also gives flexibility to offer price-off on brands

    other than its lead ones Cokes dual brand approach will extend to lemon flavor too

    since it plants to introduce Fanta Lemon shortly after the can hits the market.Coke is moving slow in India, as it wants to get the strategy right first; build a strong

    foundation before moving ahead the supply side infrastructure.

    Has also to be strengthened with the volumes reaching a critical mass; it could well be

    worth the while of Cokes international suppliers to set up facilities in India: Bell

    corporation of Colorado is considering setting up a can manufacturing plants near pune

    and continental Pet Europe has similar plants.

    Coke considers itself as the gold standard and therefore says that focused on pushing

    through innovations in the marketplace Coming in with a lower price of Rs. 6 (which has

    now been raised) and bottle size to 300 ml. Introducing full depth plastic crates when

    the industry was used to half depth wooden crates has reduces bottle scuffing and

    breakages drastically.

    MAIN AIM OF COCA COLA IN INDIA

    There is a great opportunity here because per person consumption of cold drinks

    in India is very low but the potential is high because large population is discoursing hot

    climate in India. While The Coca-Cola Company is a global company with some of the

    worlds most widely recognized brands, the Coca-Cola business in India, as in each

    country where we operate, is a local business. Our beverages are produced locally,

    employing Indian citizens, our product range and marketing reflect Indian tastes and

    lifestyles, and we are deeply involved in the life of the local communities in which we

    operate.

    The Coca-Cola Company is a global company with some of the worlds most

    widely recognized brands, after a 16-years absence, Coca-Cola returned to India in

    1993.The Companys presence in India was cemented in November that year in a deal

    that gave Coca-Cola ownership of the nations top soft-drink brands and bottling

    network. Coca- Cola India has made significant investments to build and continually

    improve its business in India, including new production facilities, wastewater

    treatment plants, anddistribution systems and marketing equipment.

    During the past decade, the Coca-Cola system has invested more than US$ billion

    in India. Coca-Cola is one of the countrys top international investors.

    6,000local people in India.

    BOTTLING AND QUALITY CONTROL

    TODAY, Cokes products reach consumers and around the world through a vast distribution network made up of local bottling companies. These bottlers are locked

    around the world and most are in independent business. using concentrates and

    beverage basis produced by Coca-Cola.

    The Coca-Cola Company is committed to assist its bottlers with the functions of an

    efficient bottling operation. Quality Control, monitored constantly by the company, is

    necessary to produce high quality Soft drinks.

    At The Coca-Cola Company, quality is more than just something we taste, or see,

    or measure or manage. Quality shows itself in our every action; it encompasses

    everything we do. From processing to packaging to pouring, anything less than 100

    percent quality beverages we can produce every time.

    At The Coca-Cola Company, through our globally accepted and validated

    manufacturing processes and Quality Management Systems, we ensure that our

    manufacturing facilities are equipped to provide the consumer with the highest possible

    quality beverage each time. Let us now take you through the processes and Quality

    Assurance Programs followed by our world-class manufacturing facilities in India.

    Even before the plant is constructed, the site is selected based on the availability

    of source water meeting the portability quality standards. At all our carbonated andnoncarbonated soft drink manufacturing locatins, the source water is tested for all

    requirements of potable drinking water. Independent third party accredited laboratories

    always conduct the analysis. The source water is then properly protected and re-tested

    periodically to ensure conformance to portability standards.

    The water us then drawn through sealed pipelines into the storage tanks in secured

    water treatment areas of the manufacturing plant.

    1. The first step in the manufacturing of soft drinks is the disinfections of water

    using the globally approved procedure of chlorination. This treatment ensures the

    destruction of microorganisms including pathogens and oxidation of heavy metal

    ions and organic impurities.

  • 7/31/2019 Final Prjct Prashant

    17/57

    2. The second step is the filtration at the molecular level, which is achieved either by

    coagulation/flocculation or reverse osmosis. Contaminants commonly removed by

    this process include :

    - Dirt, clay and any other suspended matter in the water.

    - Microbial matter (including bacteria, yeast, moulds. Virus, protozoa).

    - Heavy metals and compounds, which may cause an off-taste.

    When coagulation/flocculation is used, colloidal materials and suspended

    particles are removed by settling plus enhanced filtration multi-media. If

    needed, alkalinity may also be achieved by lime softening or ion exchange

    filters.

    3. The third step to stop potential contaminants is water purification using granular

    activated carbon filters. The granular activated carbon, with its large and porous

    surface area, ensures effective removal of trace levels of organic compounds

    (including pesticides and herbicides), color, off-taste and odor-causing

    compounds using he principle of absorption.

    4. The last step is polishing filtration, which is passing water through high efficiency

    5-micron filters to ensure every drop of treated water is free from any activated

    carbon fines and is safe for use in beverages

    TRADE MARK

    Cokes trademark are our most valuable assets. The trademark Coca-Cola was

    registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office in 1893, followed by Coke in

    1945. Coke was granted registration by the U.S. Patent and trademark office in 1977.

    In 1982 the Coca Cola Company introduced diet coke to U.S. consumers, making the

    first extension of companys most precious trademark to another products. Later year

    saw the introduction of additional products bearing the Coca Cola name, which now

    PACKAGE SIZES

    In 1993 Coca Cola has introduced 300 ml returnable Glass Bottles(RGB) , while

    maintaining the price at Rs.5, which was offered by the industry for 250ml RGB. The

    rest of the industry was forced to follow CCIs example and upgrade to 300ml.

    The focus of CCI was to offer consumer better value of price, and this has

    remained the cornerstone of CCIs strategy in India. Specially designed pallet loading

    trucks have improved distribution efficiencies. Introducing full depth plastic crates when

    the industry was used to half depth wooden crates has reduced bottle scuffing and

    breakages drastically.

    At present CCIs brand are available in a host of package sizes. These include

    200ml, 300ml, 600ml, and 2000ml PET and 330ml cans. The 200ml package was

    introduced in March 1996, and was positioned to capitalize the potential of the rural and

    semi-urban markets of India. Coca-Cola India was the first drink company in the country

    to launch cans.

    Coca Cola and Fanta marked the beginning of the can revolution when launched

    in cans just before the World Cup Cricket in January 1996 followed by Thums Up and

    Limca in May 1996. The launch of cans in India brought India on par with international

    packaging standards in the soft drink industry the world over and opened up a new

    dimension in providing the consumers with a convenient, mobile, single serve

    consumption package.

    Consumer benefit from 11 more brand package combinations being made

    available to them led by the successful,, first ever launch of Cans and PET.

    The subsequent introduction of 600ml and 2 liter RGBs with superior tamper

    evident, leakage-proof and child-safe Plastic Closures represented a technological leap

    over the mental closures previously used by the rest of the soft drink industry.

    All the national brands i.e. Coca-Cola ,Fanta, Thums Up and Limca are availablein the entire above package sizes.

    The regional brands i.e. Coke, Sprite and Maaza are available in 300ml RGB. In

    1996 coke also saw the pioneering of Coca-Cola on the Go Back pack Dispensers for

    in-stadium use during the Wills World Cup and Can Vending Machines in India.

    INNOVATIONAt the leading edge of the beverage industry for over a century, the Coca-Cola

    Company system in India also introduced a series of innovation in the areas of

    production, distribution and marketing never seen before in India.

    MARKETING :-

    Image-enhanced graphics on signage retail outlet walls and delivery vehicles.

    Trademarked tricycles and pushcarts with umbrellas, covering thousands of

    mobile outlets.

    Leading edge merchandising equipment, including icebox coolers that allows

    small retailers to services ice-cold soft drinks.

    Training for retailers in merchandising techniques, such as product placement.

    Large single and refillable-glassed bottles, offering consumers more value.

    Georgia Green refillable glass bottles produces for the first time in India to

    differentiate the brand.

    Dynamic PC-based/driven electronic outdoor signage.

    DISTRIBUTION :-

    The distribution networks of Coca- Cola had 6.5 Lakhs retailers across the country in

    FY2010

    which the company is planning to increase to 8 lakhs by FY2011 on the other

    hand PepsiCos distribution networks had 6 lakh retailers across the

    country during FY2010 which it is planning to increasing to 7.5 lakhs by

    FY2011.

    There are two marketing channels involved in the transfer of product from the producer

    to the consumer. The intermediaries involved in the transfer are distributor and retailers.

    DISTRIBUTION :-

    They are appointed agents of the company who make order to the company by

    paying in advance through drafts, stocks the products in their godowns and provides

    delivery with a team of salesman and derivers. They are allowed to sell company

  • 7/31/2019 Final Prjct Prashant

    24/57

    products to the retailers in a specified area. This area is divided into routes by the

    company. Each route is covered by one unit i.e. one delivery van, one salesman, one

    drivers, one helper etc. these units and godowns are their main investments.

    The company evaluate its distributor at the end of the year and makes plans for the next

    year. Company fixes the targets for each distributor according to markets size, potential

    last year sales growth assumption is based on deposit of empties. Distributors are

    awarded with a fair margin of 9 % For their services company also offers many gifts like

    briefcase handbags, T-shirts, Caps etc to encourage the distributor before appointing

    them. If the distributor is not complying with the condition of these agreements,

    company may reduce the area of distributors or may even terminate the relationship.

    RETAILER :-

    The sale of particular soft drinks depend a lot entirely on retailers wish. For instance if

    he does not keep Pepsi Cola and If his shop is at the prime location them certainly the

    customer will turn towards others other Cola Drinks etc. This all goes to prove that

    retailers are kings. So retailers require special focus from the Company. PepsiCo helps

    the retailers to serve its customers better by providing good margin to them for storing

    its

    product using merchandisting to improve in store product displays.

    PepsiCo not only sell the flavor but also tries to sell the glass bottles and crates to theretailer so that retailer can maintain adequate amount of ready stocks and quick rotation

    of glass bottle could be facilitated. PepsiCo provides a fair margin of Rs. 24% per crates

    to the retailers.

    Full-depth stackable plastic crates, in bright red with Coca-Cola trademark.

    New six and ten ton closed bay route trucks, loaded by forklift with standardized

    pallets of multiple crates permitting more efficient distribution.

    New three-wheeled vehicles open bay, for city/alley distribution.

    has purchased these coolers from six different companies out of which few also provide

    maintaince services. The companies are Alwyn, Carrier, Kelvinator, Konark and

    Helchama.

    In India 80% soft drink is consumed at the retailers and the rest 20% is consumed at

    homes, this requires the soft drink manufacturer to provide adequate cooling facilities at

    the outlets to make the soft drink, ready to serve to the consumer. PepsiCo Company

    wants to serve its consumers with finished products. The company supplies final

    products to the retailer and it is retail retailers where the products is transformed into

    finished product while serving the chilled soft drink to customer

    crates of empties upon each 10 liter capacity of the order and a potential of selling four

    crates annually on each liter capacity of the cooler. The retailers are required to keep

    FINDINGS

    1. Most of the outlets have problems with their Fridges. They either used to report to

    Coca cola Distributor 3 4 times to get it repaired or they get it repaired on their own

    cost after being frustrated.

    2. Outlets should be want Company Fridge Schemes and Dealers & Sign Boards of

    the Company because they say that JO DIKHTA HAI VAHI BIKTA HAI.

    3. Most of the small retailers have the problems of improper supply. The problem

    related to the supply are as following:

    a. Delivery Van doesnt stop their shop.b. Most of time, Stock is not available to distributors.

    4. Retailers are not informed by the ongoing schemes by the route agents somtimes.

    5. There is a tough competition between two major soft drinks companies in the

    market namely The Coca Cola Company and Pepsi.

    6. Coca cola does not provide any credit facility where as Pepsi provides to the retailers.

    .

    CONCLUSION

    Coca Cola holds nearly 80 percentage of the market share in Bilaspur. The company is

    far ahead of with regard to the competition with its different competitors mainly Pepsi.

    Coca cola has not only shakes up the Indian carbonated drinks market, and given

    consumers the pleasure of world-class drinks to fill up their hydration, refreshment &

    nutrition needs but has also been instrumental in giving an exponential growth to job

    opportunities.

    In Bilaspur it has managed to have a good distribution system. Although the area of

    operations is much more than the number of distributors in the city but with the help of

    proper distribution channel system it has shown a good distribution network among

    its customers. Distribution channel has a great effect in fulfilling the demand of their

    customers when the overall demand is high in the market, especially in the summer.

    The Project carried out during the course of the SIP was indeed an eye-opener to me in

    more than one way. This project helped me to increase the current understanding of the

    industry in general and analyze customers taste and preference of products. The study

    helped me to cast light on the much unexamined area of industry.

    The study also revealed that the COCA COLA is the most identified brand by the soft

    drinkers in the city when compared to its competitors.
