MESSAGES:FUTURE INDIA A DREAM OF SHRI SHRI MAHATAMA GANDHIJI, SHRI SARDAR VALLABHBHAI PATEL, SHRI LAL BAHADUR SHASTRI & KARMA YOGI DR.V. KURIEN
“The main priority of every nation is to ensure food security for its citizens. The best way to achieve this goal in a harmonious and sustainable manner is by ensuring economic well – being of the men and women who feed our nation. The founding fathers of our nation had clearly elucidated that farmers are the backbone of India and unless they prosper, our nation cannot realize its growth potential. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel knew that India will achieve true independence only when economic welfare of its farmers is assured. To achieve his vision, he inspired creation of institution like AMUL, which are responsive to the genuine needs of rural India. Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri strongly believed that our farmers will make our country self sufficient in terms of food requirement provided they are adequately supported with appropriate public policies with respect to input & output pricing and marketing. Shastriji repeatedly emphasized the fact that our food security systems should be largely based on domestic production, since agriculture provides livelihood to a vast majority of our population. During his tenure as Prime Minister, he inspired creation of institutional structures which enabled India to achieve self – reliance in the dairy sector.” “Mahatma Gandhi had repeatedly asserted that “real India” lives in its villages. He stressed emphatically on leveraging the “cooperative form of organization” as an effective instrument of rural development. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had great faith in co – operation as a means of promoting farmer’s well – being. He was the prime source of inspiration behind our “AMUL” condition of rural India.” “India is on a passage to prosperity. Health, Wealth and Knowledge are the three vehicles for this growth. People of India have started feeling an inner strength and hope to make this dream a reality by year 2020.”

The B.B.A programme is well structured and integrated course of business studies. The main objective of practical training at B.B.A level is to develop skill in student by supplement to the theoretical study of business management in general. Industrial training helps to gain real life knowledge about the industrial environment and business practices. The B.B.A programme provides student with a fundamental knowledge of business and organizational functions and activities, as well as an exposure to strategic thinking of management. In every professional course, training is an important factor. Professors give us theoretical knowledge of various subjects in the college but we are practically exposed of such subjects when we get the training in the organization. It is only the training through which I come to know that what an industry is and how it works. I can learn about various departmental operations being performed in the industry, which would, in return, help me in the future when I will enter the practical field. Training is an integral part of B.B.A and each and every student has to undergo the training for 1 month in a company and then prepare a project report on the same after the completion of training. During this whole training I got a lot of experience and came to know about the management practices in real that how it differs from those of theoretical knowledge and the practically in the real life. In todays globalize world, where cutthroat competition is prevailing in the market, theoretical knowledge is not sufficient. Beside this one need to have practical knowledge, which would help an individual in his/her carrier activities and it is true that
“Experience is best teacher”.
B.B.A has become a degree for the talented & professional Indian students. This change can be attributed to the Indian Government’s liberalization of the economic policy & encouragement of the multinational companies to come forward for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Another reason is the widening of the corporate sector. There is a good scope for the B.B.A graduates to occupy positions of prestige and responsibility and to have handsome pay packets. Today, a majority of the vital position are held the B.B.A in the corporate sector as well as in the MNCs. Bachelor of Business Administration is an integrative programmed designed, to provide a degree course in management for those seeking senior position in industry. The objective of the course is Student will be equipped with latest management skills and strategies to cope up with industrial requirements. Candidates will be exposed to latest technologies, communication system, decision support systems that will enhance the skill set of the candidate to deal with day – to– day functions. The course aims to develop the essential management skills required to meet and participate in the increasingly international business environment.
I hereby declare that the information given herein after, statements & other related papers enclosed along with this report, are to the best of my knowledge & belief, true & correct in all respects.

INTRODUCTION & HISTORY
In the year 1946 the first milk union was established. This union was started with 250 liters of milk per day. In the year 1955 AMUL was established. In the year 1946 the union was known as KAIRA DISTRICT CO-OPERATIVE MILK PRODUCERS‟ UNION. This union selected the brand name AMUL in 1955. The brand name AMUL means “AMULYA”. This word derived from the Sanskrit word “AMULYA” which means “PRICELESS”. A quality control expert in Anand had suggested the brand name “AMUL”. Amul products have been in use in millions of homes since 1946. Amul Butter, Amul Milk Powder, Amul Ghee, Amul spray, Amul Cheese, Amul Chocolates, Amul Shrikhand, Amul Ice cream, Nutramul, Amul Milk and Amulya have made Amul a leading food brand in India. (The total sale is Rs. 6 billion in 2005). Today Amul is a symbol of many things like of the high-quality products sold at reasonable prices, of the genesis of a vast cooperative network, of the triumph of indigenous technology, of the marketing savvy of a farmers’ organization. And have a proven model for dairy development (Generally known as “ANAND PATTERN”). In the early 40’s, the main sources of earning for the farmers of Kaira district were farming and selling of milk. That time there was high demand for milk in Bombay. The main supplier of the milk was Polson dairy limited, which was a privately owned company and held monopoly over the supply of milk at Bombay from the Kaira district. This system leads to exploitation of poor and illiterates’ farmers by the private traders. The traders used to beside the prices of milk and the farmers were forced to accept it without uttering a single word. However, when the exploitation became intolerable, the farmers were frustrated. They collectively appealed to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, who was a leading activist in the freedom movement. Sardar Patel advised the farmers to sell the milk on their own by establishing a co-operative union, Instead of supplying milk to private traders. Sardar Patel sent the farmers to Shri Morarji Desai in order to gain his cooperation and help. Shri Desai held a meeting at Samarkha village near Anand, on 4th January 1946. He advised the farmers to form a society for collection of the milk.

These village societies would collect the milk themselves and would decide the prices at which they can sell the milk. The district union was also form to collect the milk from such village cooperative societies and to sell them. It was also resolved that the Government should be asked to buy milk from the union. However, the govt. did not seem to help farmers by any means. It gave the negative response by turning down the demand for the milk. To respond to this action of govt., the farmers of Kaira district went on a milk strike. For 15 whole days not a single drop of milk was sold to the traders. As a result the Bombay milk scheme was severely affected. The milk commissioner of Bombay then visited Anand to assess the situation. Having seemed the condition, he decided to fulfill the farmers demand. Thus their cooperative unions were forced at the village and district level to collect and sell milk on a cooperative basis, without the intervention of Government. Mr. Verghese Kurien showed main interest in establishing union who was supported by Shri Tribhuvandas Patel who lead the farmers in forming the Cooperative unions at the village level. The Kaira district milk producers union was thus established in ANAND and was registered formally on 14th December 1946. Since farmers sold all the milk in Anand through a co-operative union, it was commonly resolved to sell the milk under the brand name AMUL.
At the initial stage only 250 liters of milk was collected every day. But with the growing awareness of the benefits of the cooperativeness, the collection of milk increased. Today Amul collect 11 lack liters of milk every day. Since milk was a perishable commodity it becomes difficult to preserve milk flora longer period. Besides when the milk was to be collected from the far places, there was a fear of spoiling of milk. To overcome this problem the union thought out to develop the chilling unit at various junctions, which would collect the milk and could chill it, so as to preserve it for a longer period. Thus, today Amul has more than 150 chilling centers in various villages. Milk is collected from almost 1073 societies. With the financial help from UNICEF, assistance from the govt. of New Zealand under the Colombo plan, of Rs. 50 millions for factory to manufacture milk powder and butter was planned. Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the president of India laid the foundation on November 15, 1954. Shri Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the prime minister of India declared it open at Amul dairy on November 20, 1955.

PEOPLE POWER: AMUL‟S SECRET OF SUCCESS
The system succeeded mainly because it provides an assured market at remunerative prices for producers’ milk besides acting as a channel to market the production enhancement package. What’s more, it does not disturb the agro-system of the farmers. It also enables the consumer an access to high quality milk and milk products. Contrary to the traditional system, when the profit of the business was cornered by the middlemen, the system ensured that the profit goes to the participants for their socio-economic up liftment and common good. Looking back on the path traversed by Amul, the following features make it a pattern and model for emulation elsewhere.
AMUL has been able to:
1. Produce an appropriate blend of the policy makers farmers board of management and the professionals: each group appreciating its rotes and limitations, 2. Bring at the command of the rural milk producers the best of the technology and harness its fruit for betterment. 3. Provide a support system to the milk producers without disturbing their agroeconomic systems, 4. Plough back the profits, by prudent use of men, material and machines, in the rural sector for the common good and betterment of the member producers and 5. Even though, growing with time and on scale, it has remained with the smallest producer members. In that sense. Amul is an example par excellence, of an intervention for rural change. The Union looks after policy formulation, processing and marketing of milk, provision of technical inputs to enhance milk yield of animals, the artificial insemination service, veterinary care, better feeds and the like – all through the village societies. Basically the union and cooperation of people brought Amul into fame i.e. AMUL (ANAND MILK UNION LIMITED), a name which suggest THE TASTE OF INDIA.

PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT The AMUL is started with only 250 liters of milk per day but now AMUL. Collect average 6.5 lakhs litters milk. With the financial help of UNICEF, union established a Rs. 5 million factory to manufacture milk powder and butter in november 15, 1954. In 1958 the plant was expanded to manufacture sweet condensed milk in 1960. In 1960 the other branch is started, which can produce 600 tones of cheese and 2500 tones of baby food every year. In 1964 the other plan was established to manufacture cattle feed on october 31, 1964. Today the AMUL has three plant known as AMUL 1, 2, and 3. All three plant work 24 hours a day continuously. The all manufacturing process done automatically.
Production is the process of conversion in which all inputs are converted into output. Production managemnt is very necessary for getting optimal output with maximum use of inputs and raw materials. AMUL has its manufacturing units. These all units are concerning with production of various milk product. The four plants are as follows: AMUL DAIRY, ANAND:This plant is engaged in production of processed milk, powder, butter, flavored milk, ghee etc. This is located in An and city. AMUL CHOCLATE PLANT, MOGAR:This plant basically manufactures Chocolates and Nutramul. It is situated anand – vadodara national highway no.8.

Products: Milk. Butter. Cheese. Milk Powder. Condensed Milk. Baby Food. Ghee. Nutramul. Chocolate. AMUL Butter Milk. AMUL ice – cream. Dan (Cattle Food). Industrial products: Coco Butter. Coco Powder. Coco Mass. Cream.
MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF PRODUCTS
For the Manufacturing of processed milk products, everyday milk is bought from 1028 village societies through truck. Since several no of chilling centers have been allotted to the village societies according the quality of milk being collected. Milk sourcing is eliminated further the trucks have the containers, which are thermoses shaped and hence protected the milk from getting spoiled. The milk comes twice a day. Generally about 85% of milk is the buffalo’s milk and rest is cows. AMUL have capacity of handling 15 lakh liter milk per day. Milk is received first at the raw milk receiving dock. The cans of milk are smelt washed and sample of milk is taken. Chemicals and hot air then wash the cans. While milk is brought to AMUL, its temperature is generally 8 to 9 degree C. So milk is pasteurized that means it is first heated at 70 to 80 degree C. this process kills the germs and bacteria from milk. Then milk is chilled at 3 to 4 degree to protect from getting spoiled. Then milk is stored in bullet like containers. AMUL has 8 such containers having the capacity of maintaining 15 lacks liter of milk each. The processed milk is thus used for producing milk products and the surplus milk sent villages and big cities in packing for sale. There is pouch machine for fulfilling this purpose, which packs 500 gm. of milk in pouches. The manufacturing processes for several products in AMUL plant are as under. Butter:In the plant, there is a machine called separator vessel, which counts the fats of the milk and separate the excess fats from the milk. This excess fat is used to manufacturing butter. Butter is manufactured from the fresh cream of the milk. The raw milk is weighted and poured into cream separator. Pure fat on cream gets separated from milk. Then colored salt is added in it to make butter. The processing of butter takes 7 min. butter making is however a continous process. Almost 30 tones of butter are packed each day. Butter is then moved on the conveyor belt to pack it in 100 gms. packing. The butter packets are then automatically moved into a box, which contain specific number of butter packets as specified by the computer program formally. Ghee:Sour milk is used for the production of ghee. This milk is sent to the cream machine for collecting cream. Cream is converted into butter and butter is heated to make ghee. Ghee is then packed in tins or plastic bags in the packing of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 15 kg.
Milk Powder:Standardized milk is first of all heated under vacuum and extra water of milk is evaporated from the condensed milk. This process is done in a triangle shape machine. When milk is heated, the milk takes the forms of drops. Then these drops are sprayed so that they become solid in powder form and get down through an automatic packing machine. AMUL has the capacity of manufacturing 60 lacks tones of milk powder everyday. Flavored Milk:Market milk form AMUL – 3 is processed in this section marketed under the name of kool and AMUL shakti. It has four flavors i.e. Elaichi, Kesar, Rose, Coffee. The color is to different flavors. Bottle filling:The bottle are filled and caped in a machine. It has max. capacity of 60 per min. the empty bottles are kept on conveyer of packing machine. For this there are 12 heads. The bottles are filled by 12 heads. The bottles are placed on conveyer. The laser printer then prints mfg. Date, bach no., MRP and best before. Shrink packing is at 155 – 165 C. Production Capacity:In AMUL there are different product produce. The production capacity of product per day is: Butter Powder Plant (L & T) Powder Plant (F60) Powder Plant (F30) Flavor Milk Milk – 50 to 60 tones. – 70 tones. – 60 tones. – 30 tones. – 40000 bottles. – 2200 – 2500 cerate.
AMUL has 20 warehouses for storing the products. Pouch Packing Section:Pouch packing section deals with packing of milk into the pouches. There are three packing machines, each machine consists of two identical heads for packing, each head draws heats sealable polyethylene sheet from a separate roll and is fed with milk to be packed from the over head tank by gravity. The materials moved continuously downwards in a strip, the film be folded. First, vertical seling occurs. As continuously cylinder moves, downward transverse heat seals are made by jaws which has the effect of closing the
bottom of pouch, so that measured volume of milk if filled into the space above a seal.
Milk pouch specification:Milk: standardized pasteurized milk. FAT % 4.5 (min).
SNF % 8.5 (min).

INTERRELATIONSHIP OF PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT
The production is the heart of organization. In AMUL all the departments are interrelated. They depend on each other. Purchase and Production Department:The purchase department purchases the engineering equipment and packaging material. They purchase it according to requirements and this keep continuous flow of production. Sales and Production Department:In AMUL sales department are sale product of AMUL at local level by AMUL parlor. A sale is done according to production. Marketing and Production Department:AMUL has marketing department known as GCMMF. In AMUL GCMMF forecast the possible sales in the future and market report on it. This report is sent to the production department and production department produce accordingly.
Maintenance:Kaira Union collects milk every night and day, it means 365 day in a year and manufacturing products. There are mainly three shifts of working employees: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – 390 workers. 4:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. 12:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Total Workman: Manager Workers Officers Clerical – 45. – 1200 approx. – 180. – 258. – 270 workers. – 190 workers.
Each and every year is declined trend in employment because of technological improvement. When the shift starts workers punch card and officers have to sine in the master roll and also there is mentioned recess time. Morning Noon – 10 minutes. – 30 minutes.
Afternoon – 10minutes.
MATERIAL HANDLING EQUIPMENTS
Material handling is art and science of moving packaging and storing of in any form. In AMUL there are following types of material handling equipments: Milk Tankers. Tempos. Belt Conveyers. Crates. Cans. Trolley. Cans Tube. Plastic Tube. Glass Bottles.
Product scheduling plan develop and successfully markets the products. It is initial point for whole marketing functions. In AMUL, federation decides what type of product is to be produced or what are the requirements for developing the new product. If the prevailing products are not at their best then what kind of up gradations are required that GCMMF guides AMUL for following concern and accordingly the unit works. So the product planning is to introduce and develop the new product as per the consumer’s requirement.
Plant location deals with the selection of optimum location for establishing industry. The selection of location is affected by a variety of factors like: Availability of raw material. Proximity of market. Availability of water, power etc. Government policy. Availability of finance. Availability of labour.
Infrastructure facility. Link with the transportation network. Hence location decision should be taken with proper care and understanding after evaluating the each of above factors. As far as AMUL is concerned, it has selected the best location. This is because AMUL is based on the availability of milk and kaira district involves number of village surrounding an and which are main sources of for getting milk since the villagers mainly depend on selling milk to earn income. Further AMUL is very near to milk to market since milk is prime requirement of every house. Labour is cheaply available with various kinds of skills required. Anand is linked with national highway no.8 and railway, thus having good transportation facilities. Besides AMUL has developed better infrastructure facilities at its plants. Thus AMUL has chosen best location for it.
Plant layout is arrangement of facility inside the factory location. Plant layout basically deals with arrangement of equipments and machineries inside the factory building in such a manner, which ensures smooth movement of man and materials inside the factory as well as the minimum movement of man and material. It is the designing of factory place in optimum manner so as to fit the manufacturing process. There are basically three types of layouts namely. Product layout. Process layout. Mix layout. AMUL is organization which is engaged the continuous manufacturing process of various milk products. As a result, AMUL has developed the product layout which follows the continuous manufacturing system. Under the product layout, product is given more emphasis than process and machineries are engaged in the order in which the product is prepared. Formerly AMUL has the old factory structure in which old machines were performing the production operation. This was taking too much time. Therefore AMUL adopted modernization and set up a totally automatic plant. As result it has developed a new plant layout at AMUL to adjust the automatic equipments and machineries.
The material, if not enough in quantity has to be purchased. Hence purchasing is an important task of production department. Material has to be purchased on timely based so that production may be sound. At AMUL purchasing procedure follows following steps: The required department i.e. the milk – producing department send the requisition to the stores department for the requisition to the stores department for the requirement of materials. If the store has enough quantity of material in stock, it supplies them to the department concerned. If the stores don’t have proper quantity of material, it contacts the purchasing department for the purchase of required material. The purchase department maintains contact with the supplier of material and demand quotation forms them. The purchase department thus chooses the suppliers and places order with him for supply of material required. Now as the material comes to the plant, the material is first taken to the lab for testing and if material is as per order, material is accepted and moved to the stores. Once materials come to store, the concerned department would receive the materials from stores by sending material requisition. The goods received note is prepared by the purchase department. This G.R. note is then checked by the procurement billing department. The procurement billing department verifies this G.R. note with the purchase order and then prepares the cash voucher. The department would send this voucher to account section which would pay the supplier along with the cash voucher. The cash voucher will include details of supplied good & their quality as well as include details of supplied good and their quality as well as the amount approved for materials purchased. One copy of cash voucher is also sent the concerned bank.
The organization that are engaged in the activity of production need to keep the stock of raw materials as well as other part to support the uninterrupted production. At the same time, the organization also has to store finished goods because it is not sure that the goods produced will be sold immediately. Hence they have to be prevented against spoilage and breakage when they are in stored in storage house. Since milk is a perishable commodity, it has to be treated in a special manner in order to prevent it from spoilage. Hence the milk is first of chilled at 3 to 4 C. AMUL has developed the bullet type storage towers which are implementing the concept of a thermos. AMUL has 8 such towers; each having the capacity of storing 1.5 lacks liters of milk. Thus the milk is stored such storage towers.

MARKETING MANAGEMENT The Chartered Institute of Marketing Defines Marketing as: “ Marketing is the management process for identifying, anticipating and satisfying consumer requirements profitably”. American Management Associations Defines Marketing as: “ Marketing is the process of planning and executing the conception, pricing, promotion and distribution of ideas, goods and service to create exchange that satisfy individual and organisationl objectives.” The Marketing concept, a philosophy of early 1950s gave marketing a much more important role in business. To apply this concept, an organisation must meet three basic needs. First, it must truly believe in the customer’s importance. Most of the companise give lip service to this idea. By contrast, a genuine customer orientation demands a commitment of people, time and monetary resources to implement this orientation. Second, marketing efforts must be integrated. Specific and measurable goals should be set; all marketing activities should be coordinated. Finally, management must accept the assumption that profit goals will be reached through satisfied customers. Clearly, the path to profit is not a simple one; all business firms compete within a complex environment that demand astute management of organisational resources and efforts. Marketing Concept:The marketing concept holds the key to achieveing its organisational goals consists of the company being more effective than competitors in creating, delivering and communicating customer value to its chosen target markets. Marketing starts with the determination of consumer wants and ends with the satisfaction of those wants. The concept say that any business should be organisation around the marketing function, anticipating, stimulating and meeting customer’s requirements. The marketing concept rests on four pillars. They are:
Target market. Customer Needs. Integrated Marketing. Profitability.
ORGANISATION STRUCTURE OF MARKETING DEPARTMENT
Product – dispatch manager
Marketing activity of AMUL is performed by GCMMF (Gujarat Co- operative Milk Marketing Federation). Total 90% of AMUL’s products marketed by except for liquid milk. Till 1960 AMUL was marketing their product on its own. But there were many problems against such direct marketing and therefore the idea of marketing federation was turned into establishment of GCMMF. Thus the federation was established in1972 for marketing the product of all dairies in Gujarat.
GCMMF does all the function of marketing for AMUL. GCMMF sends monthly market requirements data to the unit and accordingly the unit works for the fulfillment of the order. AMUL daily the amount of production of ghee, cheese, butter, milk powder are sent to the commercial department by production department at 10:00 o’clock. These production data are utilized for dispatching the order to federation. These dispatched orders are sending to concerned state by federation. The price of product is fixed by a programmer committee and members of this committee are as follows: Two Members of Federation. Two Member of AMUL. Two Members of NDDB. Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) is an India’s largest food product marketing organization. It is a state level apex body of milk cooperatives in Gujarat, which aims to provide remunerative returns to the farmers and also serve the interest of consumers by providing quality products, which are good value for money.

At AMUL, since the marketing activities are handled by the GCMMF, market segmentation is also decided by GCMMF. Generally Milk and Milk products like butter, cheese, are also popular in the all age group. Hence they are segmented at the national level. Milk products like chocolates and milk powder are segmented on the basis of age. The GCMMF conduct the market survey to know the demand for the products AMUL in the market and then accordingly determines the market segments, defines the target market.
“Marketing research is the systematic design collection analysis and reporting of data and finding relevant to a specific marketing situation the company.” AMUL performs the marketing research mainly to launch a new product in market. The purpose is checking the viability of the new products in the target market for local area. AMUL conducts the market survey by appointing business administration students for conducting the market survey. PRIMARY TABULATION & INTERPRETATION I am a student of B.B.A. from M. S. University, Vadodara conducting a survey on Effectiveness of advertising towards sales of Chocolates from Marketing Department of AMUL Dairy, Anand.  What kind of Chocolate do you eat?
 Who uses chocolates in your family?
 What form of Chocolate do you like?
 Which Television channel you like to watch most?
 In between what time you like to watch television?
 By which media you prefer to watch advertisements?
 What factors effects you in a chocolate advertisement?

LIMITATIONS OF SURVEY: Limited time available for interviewing the respondents. As a result of this it was not possible to gather full information about the respondents. When I interviewed children and teenagers, sometimes they use to give answers under the influence of their parents or elders. As summer training is going under summer season so sometimes people are less interested in filling up questionnaire. Sometimes the problem which I face is language problem for which I have to make them understand. Non-cooperative approach and rude behavior of the respondents. If the respondents answer does not falls between amongst the options given then it will turn up to be a biased answer.
MY FINDINGS: During the survey it was found that still there are 10% people who have not tasted Amul Chocolate. Lake of Awareness in consumers. Many people are not know about Amul chocolates specially children and teenagers. As I found that the main product of Amul is Milk and company firstly wants to capture maximum market share in milk market which is approx. 66%, after it Amul is concentrating upon butter & cheese which has market share of approx. 88%, so it is not concentrating upon chocolates. When I interviewed people then many of the people cannot recall Amul chocolate advertisement. It shows Lake of Advertisement or advertisement is not timely given or advertisement is not given on right time. In its advertisement is not using any brand ambassador which attracts all age group people like Cadbury. There is Lack of Sales Promotional Activities i.e. free tattoo, extra weight, toys, quiz contest etc. Cadbury is main competitor and strategically better performer then Amul. I find the main thing is that “Amul” brand name has very good image in consumer’s mind and they consider it as Pure & Good Product. People who have tasted Amul Chocolate are not ready to purchase the same again.
The product is origin of marketing. The product is synonymously used with things producing and services. But we can satisfy the human wants is product. By the exchange of this product sellers gets profit while customers get satisfaction by using it. By the nature of users it can be analyses in to customer product and industrial product. The product which is directly used by customer is consumer product while the product is used by industrial for further production is industrial product. The product are produce by AMUL Dairy i.e. Milk Powder. Therefore they are defining as customer product while allied product to its member feed is used by its member to increase the production of Milk is called industrial product.
BRANDING & PACKAGING
In developing marketing strategy for individual products, the marketing manager has to confront the branding decision. Branding is a major issue in the product development. A brand or a name, sign, term, symbol or design or combination of then, intended to identify the goods or services produced by the firm order to differentiate their products from those of competitors. A brand is company’s promise to consistently deliver a specific set of features, benefits or services to buyers. The best brand conveys a warranty of quality. Packaging involves activities of designing and producing container or wrapper for the product. The branding is the decision for the products of AMUL are taken by GCMMF. GCMMF has decided well in advanced to sell all he products under the name of “AMUL” and “Sager”. Hence all the milk products produced by AMUL are sold under the either of two names. On the other hand packaging of AMUL’s milk and milk products is carried on by AMUL itself. It is responsibility of production department to undertake the packaging task as soon as the product is manufactured. Hence the packaging of the products is settled at the end of the product processing lines.
The marketing mix, which is a set of four element: - Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. Product:A product is anything that satisfies a need or wants and can be offered in the exchange. A product can be goods, service or idea. Without product there is no marketing. This includes product variety, quality, product design, and brand name, sizes, warranties. AMUL produces and sell the product i.e. milk; it has to plan its product very carefully so that the consumer gets only good quality products. At AMUL, “GUJARAT CO – OPERATIVE MILK MARKETING FEDERATION LIMITED (GCMMF)” does the product planning at national level. It is the duty of GCMMF to plan the new product by conducting the market survey at the state and national level. However, issues of product lunch at the local level are taken care of by AMUL itself. The AMUL has set up the commercial department, which conducts the survey in the local areas through business. The new product decisions are also taken by the GCMMF.
PRICE:It is the value, usually in monetary terms that sellers ask for in exchange for the products they are offering. Pricing and product image are closely related. Customers will pay a higher price for well – known, well – regarded products, partly because of the image created through advertising and other promotions. This includes list price, discount, allowance, and credit terms. The prices of products of AMUL are also decided by the GCMMF. The GCMMF conducts the market survey to check the validity and feasibility of prices in the market and accordingly decides the prices of AMUL products. However, the price is inclusive of several elements like, Cost of milk. Labour cost. Processing cost. Packaging cost. Advertising cost. Transportation cost. Sales promotion costs. Taxes etc. The GCMMF considers all these cost aspects and set them up in pricing structure to decide the selling price of milk and milk products. Promotion:Place refers to marketing activities used to communicate positive, information about an organization, its products and activities to directly or indirectly expedite exchanges in target market.

The basic goal of working capital management is to manage is to manage and current liabilities so as achieve a satisfactory level of working capital. The need for working capital arises because the production sales and cash flows are not instantaneous. In almost all the firm 50% to 60% of the total capital forms the working capital. Different views on working capital can be classified into two groups. Gross Working Capital:According to this concept, working capital refers to the sum total of all current assets of the enterprise employed in the business process like funds of creditors, customers, and owners and of bankers. Net Working Capital:This concept represents excess of current assets over current liabilities. Working capital management includes both the management of current assets and management of current liabilities. The term working capital has specific significance as long – term resources are financing the net working capital i.e. net current assets. Therefore the management of current assets and current liabilities is an important aspect of the present study.

Temporary Working Capital:It represents the additional assets which are required at different times during the operating year additional inventory, extra cash etc. Sources of Working Capital:Commercial banks play the most significant role in providing working capital finance, particularly in Indian context. The other long – term sources are: Loans from financial institutions. Accepting public deposits. Issue of shares. Raising funds by internal financing. Bank loan.

PROSPECT OF UNITS
The very concepts of kaira union’s system of co – operative dairying were destined to become “priceless” for millions of farmers AMUL grow day to day. In the world of liberalization, globalization and competition in international market, AMUL try best to compete with dairy industry of world. For that they have some future plans. They work hard on that future plan. Future Plans: Dairy Demonstration Project:The “Dairy Demonstration Project” is a collective effort of the union and bank. The project envisages the farmer to use high yielding animals and modern aids to increase ilk production. The union will provide necessary guidance to the milk producers on various techniques and required financial support will be forthcoming with the co – participation of bank. To illustrate and bring about better understanding of the project, a “Model Farm” establish in Mogar and Khataraj to import training to the participants. Suvarn Jayanti Grams Swarojgar Yojana:As part of reaching the under privileged section of the society and alleviate their economic conditions, the government of India has sanctioned a scheme namely Suvarn Jayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) where in beneficiaries may avail of a loan from the bank with the approval of the government and the union. Under this scheme, a marginal producer intending to avail the benefits, is allocated an amount adequate for purchase of two milk animals along with required other implements on soft – loan basis with appropriate guidance and training, it more beneficiaries subscribe to the scheme, it will not only enhance the productivity and living standards of subscribing producers. The union in turn will also be benefited by way of enlarged membership and increased milk procurement. Under this Yojana, union work for employment of village people who are living under poverty line, so that they become self reliance. World is changing very fast. Today liberalization and globalization is everywhere. So handle this situation AMUL also prepare plan. Competition is increase in market AMUL works on that actively. Now a day’s new technology introduce in market every day. AMUL has a plan to introduce latest technology up to 2010 in AMUL Dairy. They have also plan to introduce new product in market research and development department of AMUL is working for that.
AMUL Parlor:AMUL will think to open own parlor at different places so that customer gets all AMUL product from one place in less price. The idea behind this is sometimes customer purchase products of other brand because the necessary AMUL product is not available own AMUL parlor. They all ready started AMUL parlor at some places but union will increase the number of parlor in near future. Potentiality of Unit for Growth: AMUL have more than 718 dairies where they establish automatic milk collection plan. Union provides a facility of solar light system, computer to most of the dairies. Union gets ISO 9001 – 2000 certificate and village societies also get ISO certificate. This has further helped in enhancing the image of AMUL internationally. Growth Comparison:-
No. of Societies. No. of Members. Chilling Units. Milk Collection Centers. 2006 - 2007 1095 5,76,081 172 890 2007 - 2008 1113 5,98,000 272 903
From the above figures the conclusion made is growing rate of AMUL increase every year. They move ahead and have a target to be number one dairy industry in the world.
The future of any institution is a subject, which requires constant attention. The future is perceived is one embroiled with hardship. Hardship may surface in many forms as global demands and changes, foreign affiliations, competition, liberalization, changing values, urban shifting etc. are some of them to name which we foresee and union has to cope with these. In future union should be adopt latest technology. Union should not sit foremost quality of product and co placement with existing product range but think in more innovative way. To stay ahead research and development unit has to be strengthened. Union also thinks of price to sustain leading position in the market. Prices will have to remain steady and to so union should concentrate on reducing and maintenance expanse rather than proposing increasing product price. In comparison with other countries, which are in leading position in dairy industry, the milk – producing animals in our country gives yield 4 times less milk. Hence, it is time that union should review enhancement of milk production by adopting better animal husbandry practices. So, these are the some future challenges for union that it has to be face.
THE ROAD AHEAD FOR CO – OPERATIVE MOVEMENTS
“Today, co – operatives are a force to be reckoned with. We appreciate the co – operatives that have succeeded. We also recognize that these are the co – operatives that have been autonomous. Autonomy is the right of co – operatives to do what they believe they must do for their members.

In this light it becomes our sacred duty to nurture and take forward this movement.”
