In 1893 Caleb Bradham, a young pharmacist from New Bern, North Carolina, begins
experimenting with many different soft drinks. In 1898, one of Caleb's formulations,
known as "Brad's Drink" a combination of carbonated water, sugar, vanilla, rare oils
and cola nuts, is renamed "Pepsi-Cola". On August 28, 1898, Pepsi-Cola received its
first logo.
In 1902, he applied for a trademark with the U.S. Patent Office, Washington D.C., and
formed the first Pepsi-Cola Company. 1905, Pepsi-Cola's first bottling franchises were
established in Charlotte and Durham, North Carolina. In 1906, Pepsi gets another logo
change, the third in eight years. The modified script logo is created with the slogan, "The
Original Pure Food Drink". In 1920, Pepsi theme line speaks to the consumer with
"Drink Pepsi-Cola, it will satisfy you". In 1923, Pepsi-Cola Company was declared
bankrupt and its assets were sold to a North Carolina concern, Craven Holding
Corporation, for $30,000.

Roy C. Megargel, a Wall Street broker, bought the Pepsi trademark, business and good
will from Craven Holding Corporation for $35,000, forming the Pepsi-Cola Corporation.
In 1928, after five continuous losing years, Megargel reorganized his company as the
National Pepsi-Cola Company. In 1931, U.S. District Court for Eastern District Virginia
declared the National Pepsi-Cola Company bankrupt, the second bankruptcy in Pepsi-
Cola history.

The Loft candy company acquired the National Pepsi-Cola Company. Charles G. Guth,
president of Loft, assumed leadership of Pepsi and commanded the reformulation of
Pepsi-Cola syrup formula.1934 was a landmark year for Pepsi-Cola. The drink was a hit
and to attract even more sales, the company began selling its 12-ounce drink for five

cents (the same cost as six ounces of competitive colas). The 12-ounce bottle debuted in
Baltimore, where it was an instant success. The cost savings proved irresistible to
Depression-worn Americans and sales skyrocket nationally. In 1941, The New York
Stock Exchange traded Pepsi's stock for the first time. In 1964, Diet Pepsi, America's first
national diet soft drink, debuted. Pepsi-Cola acquired Mountain Dew from the Tip
Corporation in 1964.

In 1965, Expansion outside the soft drink industry began. Frito-Lay of Dallas, Texas, and
Pepsi-Cola merged, forming PepsiCo, Inc. Pepsi Cola Company operates in beverages
industry. Pepsi Cola international is well reputed multinational company which is doing
its business in almost every country of the world. The company is registered in New York
stock exchange U.S.A. to make a better control over the business the company has given
the manufacturing rights to different companies. Now these companies are producing the
products on the behalf of the company by using company‟s trademark. To maintain their
goodwill in the market the company has a strict policy of granting manufacturing rights.
Pepsi Cola have standardized products all over the world (e.g. same in size, shape and
quality). The franchises have to follow all the standards given by the company.



              The head office is situated in New York (USA) with
       units operating in different regions of the world. These are
       called Business Units and Pakistan is in MENAPak (Middle
       East, North America and Pakistan). The head office of
       MENAPak is situated in Dubai (UAE). The local head offices
       for each country are situated in the respective capitals.

Pepsi Multan was incorporated in 1963 but it started its production in 1967. Allah Nawaz
Khan Tareen (Ret. DIG) got license of 7-UP. But in 1973, it became Pepsi Cola
franchise. Now a day MD of Pepsi Cola Multan is Alamgeer Khan Tareen son of Allah
Nawaz Khan Tareen. At start Pepsi Multan was having only one production plant made

by Netherlands. and was only producing 7-Up because it was the only brand produced by
Parent Company. In 1973, PEPSI acquired 7-Up in Canada so the Multan franchise
started producing PEPSI and Marinda along with 7-Up & became PEPSI franchise.
Coke was already operating in the market at the time when Pepsi Multan established. At
that time Coke was market leader but with the passage of time Pepsi Multan kept on
focusing on gaining the market share. Recently Pepsi has launched a new brand with the
name of Mountain Dew. Now Pepsi Multan is working with five production plants
capable of producing 100,000 cases per day. Installation arrangements for two new plants
are in process. The plant which was installed at the time of establishment has now been
grounded. Pepsi Multan is currently market leader with more than 80% of market share.
The company is properly serving all these areas with quality products. PEPSI Multan is
not an ISO certified company because it is an international drink having their own
standards and there is no export.

       “We aspire to make Pepsi Company the world’s premier consumer Products
Company, focused on convenient beverages. We seek to produce healthy financial
rewards for investors as we provide opportunities for growth and enrichment to our
employees, our business partners and the communities in which we operate. And in
everything we do, we strive to act with honesty, openness, fairness and integrity”

                   Slogans through Time
Pepsi-Cola has different slogans through its history. They remained much known. These

An Overview

PepsiCo Inc. is among the most successful consumer product companies in the
world with annual revenues of $24 billion and approximately 140,000 employees.
Some of PepsiCo's brand names are nearly 100 years old but the corporation
remains relatively young. PepsiCo Inc. was founded in 1965 through the merger of
Pepsi-Cola Company and Frito-Lay Inc. PepsiCo divisions operate in two major
domestic and international businesses: beverages and snack foods.

Through our divisions PepsiCo has achieved a leadership position in each of these
business segments: we are world leaders in beverage bottling and we are the
world's largest producers of snack chips.

PepsiCo's brand names are some of the best known and most respected in the
world and our restaurants are named as favorites by millions of people. PepsiCo
has achieved a continuing record of growth. This record is based on high standards
of performance, distinctive competitive strategies which are superbly executed, the
personal and professional integrity of our people, business practices and products.

Our overriding objective is to increase the value of our shareholders' investment
through integrated operating, investing and financing activities. Our strategy is to
concentrate our resources on growing our businesses, both through internal growth
and carefully selected acquisitions within these businesses. These strategies are
continually fine-tuned to address the opportunities and risks of the global
marketplace. The corporation's success reflects our continuing commitment to
growth and a focus on those businesses where we can drive our own growth and
create opportunities.

PepsiCo's beverage business consists of Pepsi-Cola North America and PepsiCo

Pepsi assumes responsibility for supplying the essential ingredients of a product
and it assures the bottler of exclusive right of sale within their specified
geographical franchise area. It works with supplier firms to assure the availability
of quality packaging, merchandising, and other related equipment made to
standard specifications. It provides advertising campaigns and media support. It
creates suitable promotional campaigns and marketing strategies. It offers aid in
personnel training for sales and production staff. It makes available quality control
facilities and technicians. It develops a national publicity effort and offers aid in
formulating local level community relations projects. And, in addition to

performing these functions, Pepsi offers service through a large field force,
including specialists in a number of technical and marketing skills.

The bottler has reciprocal obligations in connection with their franchise right.
They agree to only use approved advertising and distribute a finished product of
unvarying high quality, to use merchandising materials, and to market the product

Today, there are more than 400 Pepsi-Cola Bottlers in the US and more than 600
internationally. The product is sold in approximately 200 countries and territories.
The Company itself operates only a relatively small number of bottling facilities,
principally in larger metropolitan markets.

PepsiCo International (PCI) is PepsiCo's international soft drink operation and
includes the business of Seven-Up International. PepsiCo beverages are available
in about 195 countries and territories.

PepsiCo began selling its products internationally in 1934. Operations grew
rapidly beginning in the 1950's. Today PBI accounts for about 20 percent of all
soft drinks sold internationally.

PCI organization consists of three geographic business units, each with self-
sufficient operations and broad local authority. The three units are:

              - Pepsi-Cola Europe
              - Pepsi-Cola Latin America
              - Pepsi-Cola Asia
PCI beverages are produced by a combination of independent franchised bottlers,

joint-venture bottling operations and company-owned bottling plants. PCI is the
soft drink market leader in more than 50 countries and territories including Saudi
Arabia, Venezuela, Russia, Pakistan, Hungary and Vietnam. Other key markets
include Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Argentina. PI also focuses on high
potential, underdeveloped markets, such as China and India. PI has also
established operations in the key emerging markets of Eastern Europe, including
Budapest, Warsaw, Prague and Moscow, where Pepsi-Cola was the first US
consumer product to be marketed.

The division's flagship product is Pepsi-Cola, with its brand extensions Pepsi Max,
Pepsi Light, Caffeine Free Pepsi, Caffeine Free Pepsi Light, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi
Twist, Pepsi Blue, Vanilla Pepsi, Pepsi X and Wild Cherry Pepsi. The division's
other major brands include Mountain Dew, 7UP, Diet 7UP, Mirinda and Teem. In
all, PI offers dozens of soft drink brands in a variety of packages and sizes.



Pepsi believe the main 'drivers' behind consumer behavior are value, variety,
attitudes and convenience.

Pepsi's direct competitor is Coca-Cola Amatil. The non-soft drink competitors are
tea, coffee, water, energy drinks, sports drinks, milks, etc which are all consumed
on beverage occasions. Pepsi aims to gain a greater share of these occasions.

The Marketing Mix:
Pepsi, Pepsi Light, Pepsi Twist, Pepsi Max, Pepsi Diet, Pepsi One, Pepsi
Vanilla, Pepsi Blue, Pepsi Wild Cherry, 7UP, Diet 7UP, Caffeine Free Pepsi
Light, Mountain Dew (including Diet, Caffeine Free, Code Red, and Live Wire

                     Strategic Marketing:-
            The Coca Cola Company versus PepsiCo

Market Share:
Pepsi-Cola ranked as the second -best selling soft drink in American supermarkets
in 2000. A consistent runner-up to Coca-Cola Classic, Pepsi- Cola was joined by
three other PepsiCo products in the year 2000 rankings – Mountain Dew, Diet
Pepsi and Caffeine-Free Diet Pepsi.
Pepsi Coranked second in American CSD market share to the Coca-Cola
Company, holding 31.4% during the same year. Coca-Cola Classic outsold all soft
drinks in America during the year 2000, netting over USD$ 2 Billion at the cash
register. The Coca-Cola Company maintains the CSD market as its primary line of
business. With subsidiaries located throughout the globe, Coca-Cola is easily able
to dominate the Global CSD market.

In the year 2000, Coca-Cola generated only 29% of its operating income in North
America, representative of its large volume of international sales.4 inversely;
PepsiCo maintains lines of business in both the CSD market and the snack
foods market.

According to the Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMC), Coca-Cola has held
command of over half of the world's CSD market since 1998. On abrand-by-brand
scale, Coca-Cola took five of the top seven spots globally in 1999, with standard-
bearer Coca-Cola holding a 28.6% share of global CSD volume. Pepsi-Cola was in
second place with a 10.8% share, while PepsiCo's Mountain Dew placed sixth in
terms of global Volume.

Market Penetration:
It is the shared goal of PepsiCo and Coca-Cola to increase the overall global
consumption of their products. Kotler and Armstrong contend that improvements
in advertising, prices, service and selection can increase repeat purchases and
attract new consumers 7. In an attempt to increase market share during the famous
“Cola Wars” of the 1980‟s and 1990‟s, PepsiCo initiated the “Pepsi Challenge”
advertising campaign. Without changing their product, Pepsi temporarily enjoyed
a heightened market share and began to penetrate further into the competitive
American CSD market.

Coca-Cola responded with several attempts to counter the effects of Pepsi‟s
successful new marketing strategy. In late 1986, Coca-Cola renamed its top-selling
CSD “Coca-Cola Classic” and launched a corresponding global advertising
campaign. The success of Coca-Cola Classic has been based largely on the
integrity of Coca-Cola‟s original formula. Brand loyalty and insistence drive a
large portion of the CSD market, and Coca-Cola has the advantage with their
century-old formula.
In the 1990‟s, Pepsi shifted their focus to the growing American teenage market.
PepsiCo adopted a new marketing strategy which aggressively marketed through
high school and college campuses. PepsiCo began selling contracts of exclusivity

to hundreds of American schools, benefiting many schools with needed monies,
and providing PepsiCo a direct link to American teenagers. While Coca- Cola
has adopted a similar method of obtaining exclusive selling power, PepsiCo has
followed up with various aggressive advertising campaigns using popular
American teen icons to promote Pepsi products.

“The next generation” motto was replaced with “Joy of Pepsi” and “For those who
think young,” targeting not only American youth, but the youthful mindset of
every consumer. Pepsi continues to use teen and child icons to promote their
products, while Coca-Cola has latched onto the remaining Baby-Boomer

market. Through product placement and exclusivity contracts with restaurants,
sports arenas, amusement/theme parks and various large event coordinators,
Coke has been able to increase their overall visibility to counter

      Pepsi‟s latest marketing strategies.

      Speaking on the success of PepsiCo‟s aggressively competitive
      marketing strategies, PepsiCo Chairman/CEO Roger Enrico writes:

         “Without Coke, Pepsi would have a tough time being an original and
     Lively competitor. The more successful they are, the sharper we have to be. If
     the Coca-Cola Company didn’t exist, we’d pray for someone to invent them,
      And on the other side of the fence, I’m sure the folks at Coke would say that
       Nothing contributes as much to the present-day success of the Coca-Cola
                                Company than… Pepsi.”

Market Development:
Identifying new and developing markets for current products – market
development – is another method both Pepsi and Coca-Cola are presently using to
increase overall sales. While PepsiCo‟s shift in advertising to a younger audience
can be considered market penetration, it also exhibits qualities of market
development. Teenage Americans have not traditionally been looked at as a
powerful consumer group until recent years. Identifying this developing market,
among other demographic „micro-markets,‟ Pepsi has been able to penetrate
areas that Coca- Cola has not.

The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo alike have taken note of the potential for
expansion in the geographic markets of China, India, Philippines. CSD market
development ties in very closely with both market penetration and product
development strategies. Many CSD preferences are tied to societal and/or cultural
preferences and existing alternatives. Sprite and 7-Up (non-cola CSDs) have

been very successful in African-American markets. In 2001, PepsiCo further
augmented their marketing strategy to break into this previously unaddressed
micro market with a new non-cola CSD named Code Red.

Product Development:
While targeting the African-American market, PepsiCo determined that its
Mountain Dew line could be augmented with a new cherry flavor (Code Red).
“PepsiCo also hit the streets to go after the black and Hispanic audience with

whom Mountain Dew has traditionally not done as well. Rap jingles starring
Busta Rhymes and Fatman Scoop hit the airwaves, and cases of Code Red
mysteriously began to appear at the doors of inner-city influencers.”

Revisiting the “Pepsi Challenge” from the 1980‟s and 1990‟s, we see a larger
attempt to increase market share with product development. Prior to releasing
Coca-Cola Classic, Coca- Cola attempted to      diversify their product with the
1996 introduction of Coke II. Altering the formula of their best-selling CSD, the
Coca-Cola Company attempted to make the product more appealing to consumers.
Coke II was very poorly received, and Coca-Cola‟s attempt at product
diversification failed with thousands of consumer complaints about the new

In the brand-loyal CSD market, product modification is rarely well- received, as
exemplified by the failure of colorless colas and the poor performance of recently
released lemon-flavored colas.

Starting up or acquiring businesses outside of current markets and products       –
diversification – is an excellent way to strengthen a company. Profits and revenues
generated by secondary or even tertiary ventures can provide additional
resources to strengthen a businesses‟ primary class of products. However, as
Kotler and Armstrong explain, “companies that diversify too broadly into
unfamiliar products or industries can lose their market focus.”
PepsiCo was faced with this very situation in the mid-1990‟s with their
restaurant ventures.

PepsiCo was operating with over 400,000 employees worldwide,     many of
whom supported one of the three fast-food chains under Pepsi‟s banner. The hot
food division of PepsiCo brought in the most revenue of   any of their existing
divisions, but was the least profitable. In 1997,

PepsiCo spun off their restaurant businesses as Tricon Global Restaurants, in
move to keep from becoming too over-diversified.

PepsiCo, valuing its stability through diversification, moved to acquire Quaker and
SoBe in 2001.Quaker specializes in health foods and is the industry leader in non-
carbonated sports drinks. SoBe is a world leader in health and new-age non-
carbonated beverages. PepsiCo correctly identified the global demand for more
non-carbonated ready-to- drink beverages, and was able to move swiftly to

diversify their holdings. Gatorade, a sports drink acquired with the Quaker
purchase, sold slightly over USD$ 2 Billion in the year 2000 – rivaling Pepsi‟s
competitor Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola does not show any sign of moving into markets
other than ready-to consume beverages, but still offers a wide array of diversified
beverage products. The 239 beverage brands that Coca-Cola produces constitute a
major portion of beverages available to consumers worldwide, covering dozens
of micro-markets. Unlike PepsiCo, Coca-Cola has a long history of success with
international marketing efforts and business strategy. Thus, rather than competing
with Coca-Cola on in the international beverage arena, PepsiCo has ensured
longevity with alternate product offerings.


      The culture of Shamim & Co. is differentiated with the other Beverage
Companies on the basis of following key characteristics;

      The company’s emphasis over innovation and risk taking is much
higher than the competitors and due to this characteristic amassed by all
other Pepsi Cola Franchisees the PCI has got Top position in the year 2003
overall the world that has been published by a very well renowned Magazine

      The company’s employees exhibit precision, analysis, and attention to
detail. Due these qualities, the overall performance of the company is
appreciated and very well managed.

      The management of Shamim & Co. focuses on results or outcomes
rather than on the techniques and processes used to achieve these outcomes.
The company got “Mega Plant” status in 2000, 2001, and 2002 due to this

      The decisions made by the management of Shamim & Co. take into
consideration the effect of outcomes on people within the organization. The
people working under different Managers are treated by the dynamic
approach to get the maximum efficiency from them.

      The work activities in Shamim & Co. are organized around teams
rather than individuals. One of the company’s executives says that they do
follow the policy of “TEAM” which is de-abbreviated as “Together”,
“Everyone”, “Achieves”, “More”.

      The employees of Shamim & Co. are always willing to accept the

challenges and aggressive to accomplish the tasks assigned and competitive
rather than easygoing.
Some areas of working relationship between the employees are kept in status
quo in contrast to growth like socialization etc.

                           Shamim & Co.
                       LEARN CULTURE

      Shamim & Co.’s Culture is transmitted to new employees in a number
of forms, the most potent being;


      One of the most important ways of transmitting the culture to new
employees in Shamim & Co. is stories. Old employees of the company carry

those stories about the people who had worked with the organization. They
are well familiar with the past experiences and their outcomes. They either

frighten them or give them courage to follow or not the procedures set by the
company. The old bosses of the department brief new comers how they
should have to perform their duties and what are the norms of the company
which cannot be violated. For example Mr. Asif is the In charge of MIS
Department of Shamim & Co., he is responsible for the initial training of the

new comers. He gives them all the details regarding the Department, and
Organization. He tells them about the decorum of the office and likely
behavior to be pretended.

      Another important factor of transmitting the culture to new employees
is rituals. Some activities are considered to be the understood activities like
the break for Namaz-E-Juma. As the members of Shamim & Co., are regular
prayer sayings, so a break for the prayer is understood and nobody is
compelled to do any office work during the break. Also there is a company
policy in Shamim & Co., that is to give 15 days annual recreational holidays
with pay. Anybody who wants to go for those holidays, he can go with the
consents of his boss.

      Another motivational cultural approach is to give due position to the
employees who deserve that position. In Shamim & Co., the top executive
like Mr. Aamir Hameed GM Sales, has been given a chauffer-driven Honda
Civic Car, a latest Laptop, Unlimited use of mobile phone, a well furnished

house, one Umera per year, free cold drinks up to 200 c/s. and a very

handsome salary package. So the material symbols like these facilities also
show the best cultural values and motivational tactics for the new comers
and for those persons who work hard in the organization.

      The employees of Shamim & Co. have a formal way of behaving to
each other. They talk formal like “Sir” even to their co-workers. They
respect each other all the way to share the respect. Hence use of formal
language is also key to learn the culture in Shamim & Co.

      Reasons of popularity of Pepsi in Pakistan
      There are certain reasons for this dominance.

   1. Aggressive bottlers.
      The pepsi bottlers were more aggressive in their policies and
      strategies than that of their competitors. COKE ignored this
      region because the share they were getting from this region was
      less than nominal, providing pepsi an opportunity to grow up
      and capture the market.
   2. Anti Jew Movement.
               Because of the Arab Israel war, the Arab countries
      decided to boycott the Jew products. So they boycotted the
      COKE. It opened the gates of success and opportunity for the

   3. Environmental factors.
                Cold conditions in western societies influence people to
      use things with bitter taste like beer and coffee, therefore they

like COKE as compared to pepsi because the contents of coke
are bitterer. In Pakistan people are more inclined towards
sweeter taste therefore they like pepsi.

            Basically soft drinks are consumer good that is not
a necessity so the companies have to draw money from the
pockets of the customer. This is not an easy process.

             One of the important features of this industry is the
concept of brand loyalty or brand addiction. Customer who
wants Pepsi will always go for Pepsi. For the same reason a
competing company like Coke cannot divert these customers
towards their brand. But these customers are looking for two
things in the product, which they are loyal to.


             This is one of the main requirements of the
customer. Whether he is in a developed city like Karachi or

Lahore or in a remote village, what he wants is that he is
provided with the same quality of the product everywhere. To
have this customer requirement be fulfilled the company needs
not only to manufacture quality product but they also have to
constantly track the product as it moves from there company to
distributors and then to final customer.

                    These soft drinks can sustain their quality in a
      specific temperature specially the glass container cannot absorb
      higher intensity of heat. But what these retailers do is that hey
      keep these containers outside their shops directly under the
      sunlight that really affects the quality of the product. Although
      the life of the glass bottles under ideal conditions is almost 6
      months but due to above mentioned conditions, the life span
      reduces to only a week. Company therefore advises the
      shopkeepers to keep the stock under sheds but if they can't then
      they should sell it within a week time.

              When a thirsty customer comes on a soft drink
      corner asks for a desired brand say Coke but if it is not
      available then is he not going to go for the next available brand.
      The answer will be yes, because he needs to fulfill his thirst and
      what is readily available is going to be consumed.
                      Therefore for companies to keep their, customers
      in general and loyal customer in particular, satisfied, they will
      have to insure that their goods are in sufficient quantity on the
      shops. For this the shopkeepers keep extra stock in their shops.

For the quality to be sustained they need to sell the crates which were
stocked earlier. But usually they don't follow the pattern. What they do is
that they sell the bottles on the basis of FIFO (first in first out) method. This
practice also effects the quality of product leading to customer

This statement is quoted from Pepsi Cola International official website. “In 1960, Young
adults become the target consumers and Pepsi's advertising keeps pace with "Now it's
Pepsi, for those who think young".
Now there is no specific segmentation of market with respect to customers because their
product is standardized. According to their general manager sales, different brands are
targeted towards people belonging to different age group, according to him 7up is more
likely to be preferred by old age people where as Miranda is popular among teenagers
and Pepsi is preferred by people belonging to any age group.

Last year Pepsi Cola Multan showed their best ever performance of product growth rate
in the Asian Zone and stood fourth in the Asia. Recently last month Pepsi Cola Multan
won the Pakistan quality contest by securing first position. As compared to last year their
production capacity has increased to 100,000 cases per day in peak season.

Pepsi cola has recently launched a new product in Pakistan known as Mountain Dew
which is now a days most popular cold drink amongst adult group. In Mountain Dew they
are producing only one brand 250 ml bottle.

At least 86% of soft drink is purified water. In the case of diet soft drinks    water

comprises around 96%.


Such as sugar (sucrose from sugar cane) or non-nutritive sweeteners.     Sugar
is used in Pepsi, 7UP, Mountain Dew and Mirinda. The most popular and most
widely non-nutritive sweetener used is Aspartame.      NutraSweet is the

registered trade name and it is used in Pepsi Light,    Diet 7UP and Pepsi Max.
Aspartame, being 200 times sweeter than          sugar, is used in very small
quantities. Other non-nutritive sweeteners       permitted    are   acesulphame
potassium, thaumatin, saccharin and       cyclamate. Pepsi Max and Pepsi Light
use a dual sweetener system,       aspartame and acesulphame potassium. The
latter is 300 times sweeter than sugar, requiring even less to sweeten the soft
drink. Shelf life of the product is extended, as, unlike aspartame, acesulphame
potassium does not lose its sweetness over time.

Pepsi uses flavors to develop characteristic tastes associated with our beverages.
These come from a variety of sources; natural, artificial and nature identical. They
are usually derived from a number of ingredients used in special combinations.
Examples of flavors used in the manufacture of soft drinks include natural
flavorings from Kola nut, and fruit. Food acids and bittering agents such as citric,
phosphoric acids and caffeine are also flavoring substances.

Our products and the flavors used in those products are safe and suitable, but they
are proprietary.

Carbon Dioxide
Effervescence gives soft drinks their special bubbly appeal and is added
During production by injecting C02 into the product on the way to the filler.

Colors are added to Pepsi Cola products to enhance the esthetic appeal and
appearance of products whether they are the typical brown of our colas or the
yellows of Mountain Dew.

These may be both natural and artificial.

Natural colors or colors sourced from natural materials. Many countries have
regulations that specify certain colors as natural. These colors are referred to as

"natural colors."
Synthetic (or artificial) colors. Internationally there are many colors that are

Certain preservatives are used in soft drinks to ensure microbial stability and

    different cities. Which helps a lot in increasing its sale and directing the

As Pepsi cola Multan is producing standardized products so they have to maintain a fixed
cost. They want to lower per unit cost as well as the total cost of production.

Pepsi cola Multan is producing a standardized product because all the manufactured
items contain the same amount of the raw material required. So they want to maintain the
quality of products. They want to deliver high quality product according to international
standards given by Pepsi Cola International (PCI).

attention to delivery -on- time to satisfy customers & retailer‟s needs on the time, which

Pepsi Multan is completely autonomous in strategy development. There is no concept of
dictation from country office rather sharing of policies is more evident. Country office
does not provide any financial resources, human resources or managerial competence to
Pepsi Multan. Involvement of country office is only up to the extent of creating
advertisement & publicity campaigns in which Pepsi Multan also contributes.


In Pepsi Multan, there is no concept of informal communication between lower level
managers & top executives. They have to follow proper organizational hierarchy to
communicate with top level managers. For example, Area Sales Manager can‟t directly
communicate to GM Sales. He will communicate with DSM which will in turn
communicate with GM Sales. This flow of communication leads to delay in decision
making, noise in information & misinterpretation.


Decision making is highly centralized & ideas from lower levels are not welcomed. So

   Publicity is a non-paid for communication of information about the
   organization or product generally in some media form. At a large
   organization generating favorable publicity is usually the job of public
   relations director. In smaller companies publicity can be the job of
   marketers the owner and other employees. Indeed in a quality focused
   organization publicity presenting a positive image of all employees.
   Because it is non paid and usually reported by media as news publicity
   carries a lot of weight with the general public.

DIFFERENCE                BETWEEN                   PUBLICITY                  &

   Public relation practitioners have a different approach to the media than do
   advertisers. Whenever possible they avid purchasing time or space to
   communicate messages. Instead they seek to persuade media gatekeepers to
   carry their information. These gatekeepers include writers, producers,
   editors, talk show coordinators and newscasters. This type of public

   relations labeled publicity and is characterized as cost free because there are
   no direct media costs. The credibility of publicity typically is much higher
   than advertising. I.e., if we tell you our product is great you may well be
   skeptical. But if an independent objective third party says on the evening
   news that our product is great you are more likely to believe it.


      Publicity comes in many forms. The most common are news stories and
      public service announcements.

 1.      News stories- initiated by the media themselves allows the marketer
         little of if any control over the message.

 2.      Public service announcements space or time donated by media to
         nonprofit organization for socially responsible message


      Marketers generate news stories in whatever ways are likely to attract
      favorable media coverage. The simplest approach is to circulate press
      releases. Marketers may also host‟s news conference4s and stage attention
      getting events.


      A press release in an article written by company members and distributed to
      the media. A press release is a like a mini-news stories. It provides the

      media with information about the product or organization.

      A press release gives the marketer sum control over news coverage by
      allowing the marketer to decide when to make an announcement and what
      information to include. In preparing a press release the following tips can
      be helpful.

                 Keep it short.

                 Use clear concise language

                 Polish up the lead

                 Cite major facts

                 Include the name and phone number of the person who can be
                  contacted to verify the story.


   The marketer invites reporters to the news conference and usually provides
   them with advanced information. A spokesperson for the organization may
   read a prepared statement and answer the question from the media men. But
   there is no guarantee that media will attend or ask the question that he
   spokesperson wants to answer.


  To draw attention on its tenth anniversary a law firm in Orlando
  commissioned to photographers to create photos celebrating 20 local
  companies, 10 of which where the law firm‟s clients. Not only did the
  resulting exhibit receive favorable publicity in the local press, but also the
  local historical museum added the photos in its collection.

  As in this example the key is to create events that are some how favorable linked to
  the organization or its products. “Thus there are as many ways to generate
  publicity as there are ideas in the mind of marketer

Bottles Washing Plant:
     In the plant, syrup (from syrup tanks) and water (from water treatment) is
     mixed at a specific ratio called flow mix. The mixture then moves to carbo
     cooler where carbonation of product i.e. absorption of CO2 in the syrup at
     low temperature is done. It then moves to filler where product is filled in
     empty bottles and crown caps are put on it. The final product moves
     towards packing machine through conveyer however most of the time
     bottles are packed into cases manually.

CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) plant:
     CO2 assures the product a measure of added sanitary protection and greater

     shelf life. CO2 gas in addition to product carbonation, contributes to the

     production process itself by:

                  Displacing air from water and product during processing.

                  Supplying counter pressure needs for some filler bowls.

     CO2 enhances both beverage's taste and appearance. Carbon Dioxide
     imparts a pungent, slightly acidic taste to the finished product as well as
     creating greater eye appeal. Each individual product should be carbonated
     to a level most suited for that flavor.

                       IN PROCESS TESTING


     The purpose is to break the sugar molecule into simple molecule of glucose
     and fructose, Inversion is performed to confirm on-line brix target .the test
     is taken after an hour of starting tank on production line.

     The purpose of fill height measurement is to verify that containers are
     consistently filled to the correct level as established depending upon
     package size. Fill height is the distance from the top of bottle to the
     meniscus of the liquid.

     The purpose is to measure by weight, the percent solids of sugar in simple
     syrup, finished syrup, control drinks and final beverage. Brix is defined as
     by weight percent solids of sugar.

     pH scale indicates the amount of acidity or alkalinity. pH is measured for
     Raw water, treated water, control drink, finished beverage, T.A. testing and
     incoming raw material. The purpose of the test is to define the line Brix.
     This also helps in predicting the sensory attributes of the beverage.

    security of Rs, 30000. Along with Post Mix machine, they also provide
    counter, water tank, water filter(s), disposable glasses, disposable plates,

    machine maintenance and service. The cooling system is almost like
    refrigerator or fridge cooling system.
    However gas cylinders are attached to the machine for gas mixing. Syrup
    and water mix-up happens in wolves at-4 C .So the customer gets fresh,
    cool product in no time. The water used in fountain fresh machines is
    acquired from locally available source, It is stored in water tank and filtered
    once, twice or thrice depending on the purity of the water. With one syrup
    tank of PEPSI, TEAM and 7-Up, equivalent of 19 cases standard bottle is
    obtained, While syrup cylinder of MIRINDA has the capacity of providing
    equivalent of 16 cases standard product.

    Until now total 118 has been installed in different districts and approx. 114
    are working while others needs repair. There is further demand of about
    100 machine


    The syrup mixed with water and CO2 at the customer account. POST-MIX
    containers can be bifurcated in Transfer Tank.

    The Post Mix system differs slightly in principle from the PRE-mix system.
    The difference is related to the way the finished beverage is produced for
    sale to the consumer. The bottle fill the beverage syrup into stainless steel
    tanks at production plant and transport the tanks to retail outlets. The
    operation of POST -MIX system is as follows.

    Compressed CO2 Gas flows from the storage cylinder through gas a
    pressure regulator where it is reduced to the working pressure of the
    carbonator, then through a pressure relief valve and back flow check valve
    to a juncture where the CO2 line gets divided. One segment going to
    secondary regulators and the other to carbonators and the other to
    carbonator tanks.

    The flow of CO2 from the secondary regulators goes to the syrup
    containers. Syrup flows from the containers to the refrigeration unit and

     then to the dispensing valve. The CO2 gas directed to the carbonator
     assembly enter a small capacity tank which contains potable water
     automatically controlled to a predetermined level in addition to the tank. Its
     safety valve, the carbonator assembly includes a motor driven water pump
     to force the potable water into the tank against the CO2 pressure. The

     carbonated water from the carbonator .

     Connect dispenser to a separate outlet. Turn power switch ON. Thoroughly
     flush all incoming product lines before connecting them to the dispenser.
     Turn on the water supply and allow the carbonator to fill completely.

     Lift relief valve ring until water flows from relief valve openings. Relief‟s
     ring and allow closing.

     Turn on CO2 gas and adjust regulator to 75 psi.

     Activate a valve until pump starts. Close valve and allow pump to cycle.
     Dispense drinks from each valve to purge and remaining sanitizer from the
     syrup lines and establish quality carbonation in the carbonator .


     The most common packaging from for both PRE-MIX and Post Mix
     product is the Stainless Steel Tank. This tank comes as either a single entry
     or double entry system. Each has specific advantages and disadvantages.
     Both PRE-MIX and Post Mix product can be stored in either single or
     double entry system


     Double entry tanks have separate gas inlet and liquid outlet plugs. The

     standard double entry tank size can hold 18 Liters of product. However the
     double entry tanks are also available in other sizes.


     The single entry tank is generally made of stainless steel and can be
     obtained in different sizes. This tank is not commonly used for dispensing
     soft drinks. To date its use has been within the brewing industry.


      One question the reader will need to ask is the ratio between tanks and
      cylinders per units purchased. The answer is dependent on these factors:

                   The length of distribution chains.
                   The sales volume per outlet.
                   The product Mix ( some flavors move faster than others )
                   Frequency of calls.
                   Control of stock levels.


       One product tank contains the equivalent of 19 standard cases of 250 ml
finished product, therefore an outlet selling 40 case per week would require the
following minimum stock to cover a basic four flavor installation.

                 Outlet Machine Stock           4 Tanks
                 Outlet Reserve Stock           1 Tanks
                 Factory Shipping Stock         3 Tanks
                 Factory Production Filling      2 Tanks
                                   Total: -10 Tanks

             Outlet Machine Stock                      1 Cylinder
             Outlet Reserve Stock                      1 Cylinder
             Factory Stock                             1 Cylinder

             Total: -                                  3 Cylinders

      In a simple way, the department can be considered to have four main

              Security Deposit Receipt.
              Legal Agreement papers.
              Installation site sheet
              Installation & pick up order .

          1.   Customer Service.

          2.   Conducting Annual surveys of accounts.
          3.   Preparing a sales plan for growth in conjunction with the Post
               Mix Manager.
          4.   Grouping accounts into geographic routes for delivery
          5.   Helps in selection of sales man cum technicians.
          6.   New outlet development.
          7.   Existing outlet development.
          8.   Merchandising
          9.   Quality checking

   Dispensing equipment is very expensive and therefore every care must be
   taken to ensure that the outlet have proper annual yield. As with any
   installation of Post-Mix equipment, it is important to first undertake a site
   survey. Until this is done it is not possible to ascertain the equipment
   required. The points that need to be checked are:

      1.     Volume through put.
      2.     Type of unit required & space for product tanks
      3.     Construction, alteration and other details.
      4.     Water and electrical requirements.
      5.     General Details and deliveries.
      6.     Proper space for air circulation.
      7.     Dealer and staff are trained or not.

   The machine is normally installed in parks, shopping centers, college
   canteens, ice-cream parlors, busy roads, burger comers etc. The department
   is having five vehicles for visits of each machine after every two days.
   Different routes are planned in various areas. With every route/vehicle,
   there is a technician, driver and helper. The purpose of the route is to
   replace empty syrup tank, cleaning and maintenance work of machine and
   resolve any complaint. Special routes are arranged in case of urgent
   complaint or immediate syrup tank requirement. The technician also
   performs the job of salesman. Cylinders are delivered on cash and it is
   responsibility of technician to collect cash and later submit it at cash office.
   During the route, they have to arrange their meal for which no allowance is
   given. Technician s get a commission of Rs. 2.50 per cylinder sale.
   Currently sales
   Officer is incharge of the post mix department and performs his job as well.

   Various forms/documents/reports used in the department are:
              Post Mix installation/removal orders
              Duty slip

               Overtime register
               Main store requisition
               Daily complaint register
              Daily technician report
              Part/outlet wise sales report
              Requisition for publicity
              Daily post mix report
              Individual technician files
              Party wise profiles

        Fountain fresh department is an area which requires much more attention.
        Though currently it is working with its capacity and covering five districts
        with a smart staff. The organization should take it as a SBU and concentrate
        on it because of

     High expected growth
     PEPSI has currently no competition in this area
     No problem of empty
     It does not requires a huge plant setup and works with simple setup and
      very low overhead
     No chance of fake bottle

        So the sales can be increased dramatically by better management and
        boosting up Post Mix department.

    There is job dissatisfaction and very low motivation on the staff due to:

 Low salary
 Daily allowance has been eliminated
 Overtime is rewarded in terms of holidays not in monetary terms. According to
  technicians, they normally do not get a chance of making allowed vacations
  due to workload so the extra holidays are of no use for them.
 Higher positions are filled from outside, people within the department should
  be promoted to the chief technician and sales supervisor level.
 Technicians perform the responsibility of salesman for which they get just Rs.
  2.50 per cylinder that is very low.
 Computer is present in the S.O. office but no one in the department is really

        DARE FOR MORE!
  qualified to get use of it.
 Sales targets are set without the consent of staff.
 Post Mix staff has no knowledge of ISO.

        During the route riding, I observed following points

       The key issue is proper and compatible combination of technician, helper
        and driver . these people should work as a team in the field and must
        possess the characteristics that make a team successful i.e. technical

        competence, trust ----.
       The group should move with full preparation i.e. all required slips,
        necessary tools, tested equipment.
       The vehicles must be fit and available on time. It is in their best interest and
        make their job safe, convenient and speedy.
       The new machines are not available for installation. Used machines and
        counters make shopkeepers unhappy.
       The behavior of the staff with shopkeepers is generally good. The outlet
        owners have the Post Mix office number complaints and the response is

                       INVENTORY MANAGEMENT
Pepsi Cola Multan is handling four types of inventories which are

        Raw material like syrup, sugar, filter papers, CO2, Ammonia, Empty bottles,
        packaging material, Bottle cases, Chlorine, Corks and Crowns etc.
        Work in process will contain all those bottles which are under the process of the
        filling and packaging. At the end of shift work in process inventory of is
        transferred to other shift.
        End products are in the form of cases containing 24 bottles. End product
        inventory is managed in two ways
            1. Production department after production stores their finished goods in their
                godown which is located in the premises of factory.

            2. Sales department transfer their needed inventory in their godown and issue
                required amount of cases to distributors.
        Spare parts inventory will contain items like Gear boxes, Belts or conveyers,
        Motors and Switch boards etc.

They are maintaining anticipation inventory but at very minimal level as products are
not stored for a long-time period.

Pepsi Cola Multan follows periodic review system for inventory management. So
inventory is reviewed normally on weekly basis and some times after. Some time daily
reviews are also made. Each month the store prepares monthly consumption report.

Reorder point is calculated on two bases. Firstly they calculate the daily requirement of
the raw material and then they check the level in the stock room. For some items they
maintain the maximum and minimum level when the level of raw material touches the
minimum point they order the raw material. For two main items reorder points are as
      Sugar is reordered when it is left for only 100-batched or 1000 Kg
      Concentrate is ordered for 2 to 3 times a year

Pepsi Multan maintains a low level of inventory because they face pressure for low level
inventory due to following factors

      Company wants to provide fresh products to its customers.

      Holding cost of inventory is high.

       High inventory causes high tax

                      SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

Pepsi Cola Multan is situated near MDA (Multan Development Authority), on the road
leading to Nishtar Hospital i.e. District Jail road.

The major factor was proximity to markets in selection of location.

The location described above is favorable for Pepsi Cola Multan due to following factors

        Pepsi Cola Multan has proximity to its major market i.e. Multan City which has
        been declared by Pepsi Company; „The Pepsi City‟ This location is very much
        helpful for Pepsi Cola Multan, in competition also to maintain proper distribution
        to reduce transportation cost & time etc.
        Labor is easily available from villages & city at normal wages. No problem is
        there for supply of electricity. Most essential raw material i.e. water is easily
        available to them. Transportation cost is low. Multan is the center of their
        distribution area and they can easily fulfill the requirements of the southern
        Punjab areas.
        Community attitude is positive towards Pepsi Cola. Working conditions are quite
        good for employees i.e. No harm is there for their health & psychology.

Factory is located in the residential areas with no proper parking arrangements for its
vehicles. Loading and unloading of trucks can take place only in the night because of the
law permitting trucks to enter into urban areas only in the night. So they can only load
and unload trucks between 10 PM to 6 AM.

In order to overcome this problem they are planning for satellite warehouses which will
enable PEPSI to have flexible timings for loading and unloading of trucks and storage of
products closer to the customers.

Layout is physical arrangement of economic activity centers within a facility. An
economic activity centre can be anything that consumes space. In other works layout is
physical arrangement of people, equipment or activities.
Pepsi Cola Multan works with product layout type, as resources are arranged around the
product‟s route. Computer application is also there in making layouts.
       A single manufacturing plant consists of following different parts
               1. Filler
               2. Chiller
               3. Washer
               4. Crown fixer
               5. Conveyer
       All these parts should be arranged in a proper sequence to reduce the production
       time. At first washed bottles are transferred to filler through the conveyer belt and
       both filler and chiller are located at the same place in order to keep the filling
       liquid cool at the time of filling.

                             QUALITY CONTROL
It is quite clear that emphasis on the high quality is only thing to sustain in the market.
Quality is important due to following reasons:
    Product liability
    International liability
    Cost and market share

Regular sample picked by the representative of PCI in the factory and sent to America for
the analysis regarding to quality. These standards are:
Green       Excellent
Yellow      Good
Orange      Satisfactory
Red         Warning
Machinery maintenance is also checked. At this time Pepsi achieve the Green for the

Raw material used in production, comprises of following items.
    SUGAR
From the above items previously the franchiser from USA provided concentrate.

Following tests are made for the quality


      Water is the main ingredient of the beverage product. Raw water is treated
      so as to make it free of all impurities and use in the process.


Water Testing 2P-M Indicator Method:

      The purpose of "2P-M" or " A " alkalinity test is to verify that water
      treatment plant is operating correctly and final treated water for processing
      conforms to standards. High alkalinity leads to undesirable effects. The
      frequency of the test is after every half-hullr.

Total Dissolved Salts Testing In Water:

      The purpose is to provide rapid, indirect evaluation of the total dissolved
      salts in a water sample. The level of total dissolved salts is a useful measure
      to gauge the overall consistency of the mineral contents in the water, which
      ultimately effect the quality of beverage. The frequency of the test is after
      every four hours.

Water Test Chlorine Residual:

      Chlorine "residual" is the amount of chlorine that remains after the natural
      chlorine demand of the water has been satisfied. Two fold purpose of the
      test is:

      1.     Where chlorine is necessary , to demonstrate that the level of
      chlorine present is adequate for water oxidation & disinfections purposes &

      2.     Where chlorine is prohibited, to confirm that it is absent.

      The frequency of test for water treatment is after an hour and for washer
      final rinse is once in a shift.

Taste, Odor And Appearance: Treated Water:

        The purpose of this test is to provide a rapid, gross evaluation of major
        defects in treated water for syrup & beverage making. In this test, the taste,
        odor and appearance of treated water samples are assessed hourly.

Water Hardness Test:

        The hardness in the water will affect the beverage quality as well as
        produce scale in washers, boilers etc. water hardness is gradual decrease in
        the tendency of water to form foam due to presence of impurities like
        chlorides, soleplates etc.

        Fountain fresh department is an area which requires much more attention.
        Though currently it is working with its capacity and covering five districts with a
smart staff. The organization should take it as a SBU and concentrate       on it because

       High expected growth
       PEPSI has currently no competition in this area
       No problem of empty
       It does not requires a huge plant setup and works with simple setup and very low
       No chance of fake bottle

        So the sales can be increased dramatically by better management and
        boosting up Post Mix department.

        DARE FOR MORE!
    There is job dissatisfaction and very low motivation on the staff due to:

   Low salary
   Daily allowance has been eliminated
   Overtime is rewarded in terms of holidays not in monetary terms. According to
    technicians, they normally do not get a chance of making allowed vacations due to
    workload so the extra holidays are of no use for them.
   Higher positions are filled from outside, people within the department should be

    promoted to the chief technician and sales supervisor level.
   Technicians perform the responsibility of salesman for which they get just Rs. 2.50
    per cylinder that is very low.
   Computer is present in the S.O. office but no one in the department is really qualified
    to get use of it.
   Sales targets are set without the consent of staff.
   Post Mix staff has no knowledge of ISO.

       During the route riding, I observed following points

      The key issue is proper and compatible combination of technician, helper and
       driver . these people should work as a team in the field and must possess the
       characteristics that make a team successful i.e. technical competence, trust ----.
      The group should move with full preparation i.e. all required slips, necessary
       tools, tested equipment.

      The vehicles must be fit and available on time. It is in their best interest and make
       their job safe, convenient and speedy.
      The new machines are not available for installation. Used machines and counters
       make shopkeepers unhappy.
      The behavior of the staff with shopkeepers is generally good. The outlet owners
       have the Post Mix office number complaints and the             response is efficient.

     Proper hierarchical system

               The biggest problem we found in the organization was the lack of a
       proper system, which is immensely important for such an organization.

       This is a typical Pakistani family business where the owner is making the
       decisions all the time.

       There is no succession planning, as it is apparent from the hiring of the
       production manager from outside.

 Proper system of reporting
         There was no proper system of communication as who is to report
  to whom and who is responsible of what. If a simple technical worker
  encounters a problem in the plant or any part of the equipment is broken,
  he at once rushes to the production manager as what to do. This is clear
  that they have no proper reporting system as to deal with the broken part
  of the equipment is not the job of the production manager.

  There must be clearly defined levels of communication. The technical
  worker must report to his immediate supervisor. If that supervisor is
  unable to solve the problem then the official next to him should be
  consulted and be proceeded in the same pattern. The matter will reach the
  production manager but in a systematic way. So company needs a proper
  communication and reporting system. It may also help in reducing rather
  eliminating false reporting.

 Employee training
  We see that when the new production manager was hired, he, for
  implementing new techniques, gave lectures to the employees and also
  recruited new ones. So there is lack of training of the employees in the

         Generally Pepsi International has manuals for the managers that
  describe the standard procedures and typically called as “THE PEPSI
  WAY”. These are the guidelines, which must be passed on the employees

  as how the work is to be done. What happened in the past is that the
  managers kept hiding these manuals from the employees and placed them
  under lock and key. The current production manager has taken an
  important step as he is preparing notes from these manuals and passing
  them on to the employees. But still it is not enough. Because the plants of
  the factory work in mistake at any process can cause a serious problem
  for the other plant, which may lead to a severe mishap for the whole

    production. So in this way the employee training has got the significant

For corrective action following steps lead to success for the organization:

   Periodic training programs
   Classes for unskilled persons
   Updating of skills of the employees.

 Performance appraisal
            The performance appraisal system in a manufacturing organization
    is a very tricky job. For example evaluating the performance of one shift
    that has done the maintenance of the plant should be treated as separate
    from the performance of the employees in the next shift that has got higher
    production. The reason is that the second shift might be having less
    efficiency than the previous one and the credit goes to the second shift.

            The previous shift workers should be rewarded more than the next
    shift because they had done the maintenance and kept the plant in working
    condition. The second shift workers just have capitalized on the work of
    the previous shift workers. That‟s why the performance evaluation is very
    important as it directly deals with the motivation of the employees. If the
    employees feel that they have not been rewarded according to their jobs,
    they may show little or no involvement in their tasks and may indulge in
    activities that often hinders the efficiency of the production unit.

    They mighty start

    Making groups
   Making false reporting
   Try to create obstacles for others
    For this reason the company needs specific performance standards for
    specific tasks.

 Employee Motivation

         Whenever someone talks about motivating the employees, it is
  commonly said, “Don‟t forget the money consideration”. So, apart from
  motivation through training for the work, the employees must be rewarded
  with proper reward and compensation systems.

  The company is also lacking in this area. Getting rewards especially when
  it is in the form of money or cash motivates the employees.

  So we emphasize on proper reward and compensation system and a fair
  level of salaries for all the employees in the factory. Salaries were stagnant
  due to the stagnant production for the last 15 years. As the production has
  gone up and it is just due to the employees so the salaries of the employees
  must also be raised. Their commitment and involvement can be increased
  by raising their salaries and rewards.
