be done basing on the milk content, like milk based products like tea, coffee, flavoured milk, and
health drinks (milk, malt and coco) and the second segment can be done on non-milk products such as
soft drinks and mineral water.

Soft drinks industry is a well known consumer product industry. It originated in the year 1772.
In the USA first bottled soda was manufactured, by inventing a machine in 1809, the manufacturing of
carbonated soft drink was recorded in the history of soft drink industry.
Now a days soft drink industry is growing very extensively and millions of people are
consuming soft drinks everyday. Age, income, and climate are not at all a barrier for the consuming
soft drinks by the people. This is the reason for the tremendous growth in soft drink market.

sources. They are
1. Primary sources
2. Secondary sources
Primary data is collected from the retailers through a structured questionnaire. It includes the
first hand information from the outlets. It can view as a survey. The questionnaire was especially

Company overview

In this chapter, an over of all the major accepts related to the study is discussed. The total
industry profiles the soft drinks industry globally and in our country. The profile of the company with
respect to its operation number of franchises, market share of the company and many other factors
would be discussed here.


Non alcoholic soft drink beverage market can be divided into fruit drink and soft drink. Soft
drinks can be further divided into carbonated and non carbonated drinks. Colas, lemon and oranges are
carbonated drinks while mango drinks come under non-carbonated drinks. Cola, lemon and oranges
are carbonated drinks while mango dinks comes under non-carbonated category. The soft drinks
market till early 1990’s was in hands of domestic players like Coke, Thumps Up, Limca etc. but with
the opening up of economy and coming of MNC players Pepsi and Cock the market has totally under
their control. Worldwide, Cock is the leader in carbonated drinks market. In India it is Pepsi, which
scores over cock but this difference is fast decreasing. Pepsi entered Indian market in 1991. Cock re-
entered (after they were thrown out in 1977, by then central government) in 1993.
Pepsi has been targeting the youth and the sales have been doing well by sticking to this youth
segment. Cock on the other hand struggled initially in establishing itself in the market. In a span of 7
years of its operations in the country it changed its CEO four times they seem to have started
understanding the pulse of Indian consumers.
Soft drinks are available in glass bottles, aluminum cans and PET bottles for home
consumption. Fountains also dispense thin in disposable containers.
The soft drink market can be segmented on the basis of place of consumption and on the
basis of type of products.
The segmentation on the basis of place of consumption divides the market into three parts:
1. on-permise-80% of the consumption of soft drinks is on premise i.e. restaurants, railway
stations, cinemas etc,
2. At-home the rest 20% of the market compromise of the soft drink purchased for consumption
at home.
The market can also be segmented on the basis of types of products into Cola products and non-cola
1. cola products account nearly 62% of the total soft drinks market. The brands that fall in this
category are Pepsi, cola, Thumps Up, Diet Pepsi etc.
2. non-cola segment, which constitutes 36%, cam be divide into 4 categories based on the type of
flavour available, namely
 Orange
 Cloudy lime
 Clear lime
 Mango

I. Orange flavour based soft drinks constitutes around 17% of the market. The
segment is largely dominated by national brands like Fanta of Coca-cola Co.
and Mirinda Orange of Pepsi Co. rest of the market is in hands of smaller
brands like Crush (earlier Cadbury Schweppes and now of Coca Cola), Gold
Spot etc.
II. Cloudy Lime flavour constitutes 14% of the market and is largely dominated by
Limca of Coca Cola and Miranda Lemon of Pepsi Co.
III. Clear Lime this segment of the market witnessed good growth initially with all;
the players launching their brands in the segment. But now the growth in the
segment has slowed down. The brands available in this segment are 7 Up ,
Mountain dew of Pepsi, Sprite of Coca-Cola and Canada Dry( earlier of
Cadbury Schweppes and now of Coca Cola). The segment constitutes 3% of the
total soft drinks market.
IV. Mango flavour segment constitutes 2% of the total soft drinks market and it
directly competes with mango based fruit drinks like Fruity. The leading brands
in this segment are: Maaza of Coca Cola and Slice of Pepsi.

There is very thin line of difference between the clear and cloudy lime. The most obvious
feature is that clear lime has to be bottled in green bottles as sunlight harms the drink and changes the
There are some small local brands at city or regional levels. Most of these are either merging
with two big players (Coca Cola and Pepsi) or they command a very small –less than 3% of the total
market in their respective areas.

Soft Drink Production Area:

The market preference is highly regional based, while Cola drinks have main market in metro
cities and northern states of U.P, Punjab, Haryana, etc... Orange flavoured drinks are popular in
southern states. Sodas too are sold largely in southern states besides the Bars. Western markets have
preference towards mango-flavoured drinks.

Major Players in Soft drinks Industries

The two global majors Pepsi and Coca Cola dominate the soft drink market in India. Coca
Coal, which would up its operations during the introduction of the FERA regime, reentered India 16
years later in 1993. Coca Cola acquired a major chunk of soft drink market by buying out local brands
Thumps up, Limca, Maaza and Gold spot from Pearl beverages, Coca Cola has also acquired Cadbury
Schweppes soft drink brands Crush, Canada Dry and Sport Cola in early 1999 and now recently in
Oct.2008 .It acquires distribution rights of these brands from IFB Agro Ltd . Pepsi stated a couple of
years before Coca Cola manufactures came up with their own market share figures and claimed to
have increased their share.
Shares Reports On Retailers In Soft Dink Industry:

A Survey was conducted to study the retailer’s view of the present market, future trend and the
consumer behavior patterns. The findings of the survey are as follows.
• Retailers started that the consumers are loyal to the particular segment of the soft drink
i.e. Coca Cola, Orange or Lemon. But as for the loyalty for the brands in each segment
is concerned, it is not very significant.
• 43% of the retailers surveyed told that in the soft drink industry advertising is the key
component, it drives sales. While 32% stated promotional schemes and 20%brand
loyalty as the reason.
• As consumers are not very brand loyal where the purchase of the soft drink purchase is
concerned, the retailer purchase becomes a critical issue. They usually sell the product
in which they get maximum benefit. For this, the companies try to offer them higher

While distributors get the margin of Rs 8-9 per crate (1 crate is equal to 24 bottles) at 3-4% of MRP,
retailers are given margin of 10-12 % of MRP. The retailers are not happy with this, as the cost of
refrigeration very high for soft drinks to overcome this problem the companies are offering Visi
coolers schemes to their main retailers

sound. Providing a fair return to their investors, while adhering to the highest standards of integrity.

encourage consumer to explore their wide range of brands.

Main objectives:
The objectives of the company set out in memorandum of association and franchise
agreements are as follows:
 To manufacturing soft drinks by concentrating supplied by Pepsi Foods.
 To market and advertise within specified areas for Pepsi products.
 To sell soft drinks at fixed prices.

financial structure:

To start and operate business, any company has to invest its capital in fixed assets and
floating assets and also in meeting the daily requirements of the company. However, depending on the
nature of business and product being offered by the company, the ratio of investment of capital in fixed
and floating assets differ.
Working Capital:
It means capital required for daily management of the company eg. Wages, salaries,
canteen expenses and transportation expenses etc
Plant layout: the machine and equipment have been imported from Germany, which are
arranged in the plant according to the sequence of operation. All the operations are carried on a
continuous movement. The reasons for choosing the product layout are:

1. There is continuous supply of material.

2. The brands are all standardized products.
3. The demand for the product brands is reasonable stable.
4. The volume of production is adequate for the reasonable utilization of equipment.
Since the company follows continuous operation movement, the cost of material handling
goes low. The total floor space required by the machine is less than other types of plant layouts.

Plant Capacity:

The company installed latest up to date automatic plant conforming to plant layout. The
installed production capacity is 400 bottles per minutes i.e. 24,000 bottles per day. The plant also is
having 100 bottles per 1-leter line. During off-season the plant runs one shift. The company has to
produce enough bottles of soft drinks at a speed to keep in space with the disappearance of soft drinks
form shelves of the retailer.

Production Schedule:
The production schedule is fixed by taking into consideration.
 The present or current market demand.
 The availability of empty bottles.
 The inventory position filled bottles of different flavors.
The production schedule for each brand is fixed daily, filling the bottles of each branded flavors.
This has an advantage in manufacturing the branded product is one at a time.

Quality control
Pearl Beverages Pvt. Ltd. takes great care to maintain the quality control of the products
in their factory. The Bottles are visually examined for impurities continuously, as the bottles move out.
Samples are checked every ten minutes of production time by the chemist for its quality and hygiene
condition. The chemical analysis is also made for flavors, gas content and sugar percentages. The
appearance, smell and taste of the products are also checked. If any defects are noticed, the production
is suspended and the correcting measures are taken so as to set right the bottling process irregularities.
Further, samples from each batch are dispatched to the affiliated parent agency company in each week
for quality checkup. Moreover, agency of the company also lifts sample form the market at the random
for quality checkup at any time to make sure that the quality is maintained to the exact standard of the
parent company.
At the end of the production schedule, daily all the equipment floor and wet patches are
cleaned with bleaching powder or some other solution. The standards of hygiene maintained inside the
production shops are commendable.

Theoretical Framework

The main part of the report i.e. Analysis part is covered in this chapter. I did survey in 300
outlets in 3 various areas. After conducting the survey I interpreted the total collected information
using a structured questionnaire. The required information is derived from that interpretation and
analysis. This analysis part contains tables and pie charts. We can come to a conclusion from the final
information from this chapter. Because of that reason this chapter is very important in the entire study
of the project. Without this interpretation we can conclude the total survey and also can not understand
the position of any company and the opinion of the customers regarding the company.


Details of the survey conducted:
The total data collected in three areas in Srikakulam district of total of 300 retail outlets. They
are given below:
Cluster-1 130 Srikakulam
Cluster-2 90 Amadalavalasa
Cluster-3 80 Narasannapeta

I started my survey first at Srikakulam on 4/02/09 and my study completed on 18/02/09 with
Amadalavalasa. I personally went to every outlet and asked the total details of which are in the
questionnaire and filled those things. Some of the retailers denied giving the details and I waited there
with patience and collected all the data. In my survey I learned a lot and collected the useful
information and also got good experience in the market field and came to know many things which are
not in our books through this survey. I almost covered all the retail outlets which are situated in these
areas and collected the correct information.

The chapter contains Findings, Suggestions and Conclusions.

Basing on the results of the survey Suggestions are given to improve the

potentials and the market share of the company in the soft drinks field. The total

findings are prepared by the survey information collected in the various places in

Srikakulam district. I did the comparative study between the top two brands in

the field of soft drinks sector those are Pepsi and Coke. The information is base
on the two brand comparison and in my view these are useful to the company to

improve its performance and can get good sales as well as good market share in

the field of Soft Drinks. These are all my sincere findings and suggestions to the



1) The company is maintaining the quality of the products and it has good

quality control Dept.

2) Now a day because of changing the food habits the soft drinks are added to

their food habits.

3) Pepsi soft drinks are occupying more than half of the soft drinks market.
4) The demand for the fruit based soft drinks is go on increasing and they

occupied the top selling drinks position.

5) Sales promotion activities taken by the Pepsi Company is good as per the

retailer’s opinion when compared to coke.

6) The Pepsi Company’s supply of drinks is good but they are not providing

the sufficient drinks to the outlets.

7) The No. of Visi coolers in the market is less when compared to the Coke


8) Some of the retailers are placing the other products also in the company


9) Pepsi company’s offers to the retailers are not good in the view of the


10) The dealers are not giving the proper information about the new products

and the new offers given by the company.

11) The retailers are not provided any credit on the purchase of the drinks in the case of both


12) Advertisements for every drink are given individually, because of that the consumers are not

aware of the total drinks offered by the company and the expenses will more for the company.


1) The company has to increase its quality more and also has to introduce

more verities of drinks in to the market to increase its market share.

2) It has to change the advertisements in a manner that add the soft drinks

as a part of food.

3) The Pepsi has some more scope to increase its market share and it has to

strive for that.

4) Company has to concentrate on the fruit based drinks and add some more

fruit based drinks to the product line.

5) The Pepsi Company has to increase the No. of Visi Coolers in the market.

6) The retailers are using the Pepsi Visi Coolers for other drinks also, they

have to control that. For that purpose the company has to recruit some


7) Pepsi Company has to increase the trading offers to the retailers.

8) The dealers should provide the sufficient information to the retailers about

the products and the new offers to the retailers provided by the company.

9) The dealers should be provided the credit up to some limits by the


10) The Advertisement should be given as a whole, that will bring the

awareness about the products and reduce the advertisement cost of the

company also.

The project was a great experience for me in order to study the marketing

aspects in the world. It was a great opportunity for me to express what I have


This industry is a place where two major players are there in the world.

This Pepsi Company gave me lot of opportunity and scope to understand the soft

drink industry and its marketing structure and distribution channels.

Lot of voluble information regarding the company and also the retailers,

has been collected from the survey, which helped me clearly to understand the

real problems faced by the marketers to distribute and also make retailers to sell
the company’s products in the market. I understood who difficult to do the

marketing in the present scenario.

The suggestions made to the company were really applicable for the

growth and benefit for the company in order to increase its market share and to

become the market leader in the soft drink industry, because a large number of

competitors craving for the same market.

Thus, finally it can be said that the industry needs a lot of channel

management activities to done along with various promotional strategies for the

customers. I wish the company to achieve its objectives achieved soon.

– and we can rightfully take pride in our accomplishments. Like all winning teams, we
are constantly asking ourselves, “How do the best get even better?” The answer is to
deliver Performance with Purpose: our vision to take PepsiCo’s foundation of strength
and build on it to create a company that both generates healthy financial returns and
improves the lives of our consumers, our employees and our communities. To do better
by doing better, we must start with our Values and our Code of Conduct. This means
delivering superior financial performance the right way, achieving results with
integrity, building trust with one another and all of our stakeholders – with our Values
and our Code at the center of everything we do. Our commitment to applying our
Values and the Code of Conduct to all aspects of our business is critical to delivering
world-class performance … and doing so with a larger purpose that makes a difference
to the world we share. My intent is that this Code of Conduct will help guide each of us
as we work toward living our Values and making Performance with Purpose a reality.
These indispensable tools serve as our unshakeable foundation. Thank you for your
support and your personal engagement in ensuring that PepsiCo remains a high-
integrity company that delivers consistently strong performance the right way.

Indra Nooyi
[Chairman and Chief Executive Officer]
PepsiCo’s mission is to be the world's premier consumer Products Company focused on
convenient foods and beverages. We seek to produce healthy financial rewards to investors as we
provide opportunities for growth and enrichment to our employees, our business partners and the
communities in which we operate. In everything we do, we strive to act with honesty, fairness and
integrity and to obey the laws and regulations of the countries where we do business. This Code of
Conduct applies to PepsiCo, its subsidiaries throughout the world, joint ventures over which PepsiCo
has management control and to every employee of these companies.


We believe our most important strength is our employees. We seek to provide a work
environment where all employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential and contribute to
PepsiCo's success. We emphasize personal integrity and believe long-term results are the best measure
of an employee’s performance. PepsiCo respects the human rights and the dignity of all employees.
We endeavor to treat our employees fairly and honestly. We strive to maintain a safe, secure and
healthy workplace and it is against our policy to use forced or child labor. We also strive to follow all
applicable employment laws and regulations. We are committed to equal opportunity in all aspects of
employment for employees and applicants. This means providing a workplace free from any form of
discrimination or harassment, including sexual harassment. We seek to create a work environment
where people feel comfortable and respected, regardless of individual differences, talents or personal
characteristics. Our objective is for the diversity of our employees to reflect the diversity of the
population wherever we operate and for the performance of all employees to be judged fairly and
based on their contribution to our results. PepsiCo encourages an inclusive culture, which enables all
employees to do their best. This means we:

• Welcome and embrace the strengths of our differences,

• Treat each other with respect and fairness, and
• Foster an atmosphere of trust, open communications and candor.
We recognize the needs of individuals to achieve professional and personal balance in their
lives. We also respect employee privacy and will acquire and retain only that employee personal
information that is required for operation of the Company’s business or required by law.


We are committed to the continuation of free enterprise and the legal and regulatory
frameworks that support it. Therefore, we recognize the importance of laws that prohibit restraints of
trade, predatory economic activities and unfair, deceptive or unethical business practices. In all of our
business dealings with consumers, customers, suppliers and competitors, we will:
• Avoid any unfair or deceptive practice and always present our services and products in an honest and
forthright manner.
• Treat all customers and suppliers honestly, fairly and objectively
• Select suppliers based on merit, and make clear to all suppliers that we expect them to
compete fairly and vigorously for our business.
• Compete vigorously and with integrity.
• Never comment on a competitor’s product without a good basis for such statements.
• Comply with all competition laws, including those prohibiting agreements or understandings
with competitors to fix prices or other sales terms, coordinate bids or divide sales territories,
customers or product lines. These types of agreements with competitors are generally illegal
in the United States and many other markets where we conduct business.


PepsiCo firmly believes that international commerce strengthens stability and peace by
fostering economic growth, opportunity and mutual understanding. As a global enterprise, we
recognize our responsibility to act in concert with the legitimate interests of the countries in which we
do business. We will obey all applicable laws and regulations of our host countries. Our objective is to
be a good corporate citizen wherever we operate.

Our business decisions are made on merit. Therefore, we will never give or offer, directly or
indirectly, anything of value to a third party, including a government official, political party or
candidate, to corruptly influence that person’s business decision or gain an unfair advantage. We will
observe PepsiCo’s International Anti-Bribery Policy at all times.
Giving gifts or entertainment to governmental officials is highly regulated and often prohibited.
Such gifts and entertainment should not be provided unless you have received Law Department
approval. Gifts or entertainment given to or received from customers or suppliers must never
influence, or appear to influence, business decisions. There must be a legitimate business purpose for
any business gift or entertainment, it must be in good taste and it must be consistent with the law, with

policies, they must be nominal in value and frequency. Customer and supplier meals and entertainment
must be reasonable in cost and frequency and consistent with guidelines established by PepsiCo or
your function/division.

its employees, visitors, contractors and vendors. It is our policy to provide employees with a drug-free
workplace. In order to create an environment free from threats, violence and intimidation, we are
committed to a policy of zero tolerance for violence. We are dedicated to designing, constructing,
maintaining and operating facilities that protect our people and physical resources. It is our policy to
comply with all applicable health and safety laws and regulations, provide and require the use of
adequate protective equipment and measures, and insist that all work be done in a safe and responsible
manner. It is the responsibility of each employee to follow all Company policies and procedures
related to workplace health and safety.

in the countries where we operate.

community activities. We will continue to communicate information and opinions on issues of public
concern that may affect
PepsiCo. Decisions by our employees whether or not to contribute time, money or resources of their
own to any political or community activity are entirely personal and voluntary. We will obey all laws
