BRIEF HISTORY

Over 100 years link with India. In the summer of 1888,visitors to the Kolkata harbor & noticed crates full of Sunlight soap bars, embossed with the words Made in England by Lever Brothers. With it, began an era of marketing branded. Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).

Soon after followed Lifebuoy in 1895 and other famous brands like Pears, Lux and Vim. Vanaspati was launched in 1918 and the famous Dalda brand came to the market in 1937.

In 1931, Unilever set up its frist Indian subsidiary, Hindustan Vanaspati Manufacturing Company, followed by Lever Brothers India Limited (1933) and United Traders limited (1935). These three companies merged to form HUL in November 1956; HUL offered 10% of its equity to the India public, being the frist among the foreign subsidiaries to do so. Unilever now holds 51.55% equity in the company. The rest of the shareholding is distributed among about 380,000 individual shareholders and financial institutions.

The erstwhile Brooke Bonds presence in India detes back to 1900. By 1903, the company had launched Red Label tea in the country. In 1912, Brooke Bond & Co. India Limited was formed. Brooke Bond joined the Unilever fold in 1984 through an international acquisition. The erstwhile Liptons links with India were forged in 1898. Unilever acquired Lipton in 1972, and in 1972, and in 1977 Lipton Tea (India) Limited was incorporated.

Ponds (India) Limited had been present in India since 1947. It joined the Unilever fold through an international acquisition of Chesebrough Ponds USA in 1986. Since the very early years, HUL has vigorously responded to the stimulus of economic growth.

The growth process has been accompanied by judicious diversification, always in line with Indian opinions and aspirations.

The liberalization of the Indian economy, started in 1991 clearly marked an inflexion in RSPL (Rohit Surfactants Pvt. Ltd.) and the Group,s growth curve. Removal of the regulatory framework Allowed the company to explore every single product and opportunity segment, without any constraints on production capacity.

Simultaneously, deregulation permitted alliances, acquisitions and mergers. In one of the most visible and talked about events of Indias corporate history, products like soaps, Detergents and personal products both for the domestic market and exports to India. In 1995 RSPLs Footwear & Leather Division has recorded impressive growth.

Executive summary

Ghari Detergent brand is one of the fastest growing in the stagnant FMCG market. The Ghari Group, in spite of such competition, is making great strides in the Indian Detergent Industry and is currently ranked as third largest brand in its category with more than 16% market share (approx.) and is striving to better its position by constant endeavor. With the passage of time, by adopting latest technology and using premium quality raw material, it developed a product under the brand name GHARI to the liking of the masses and achieved a group turnover of more than Rupees 1000 Crores in the financial year 2006-07, continuing with an average growth rate of 15 to 20%. Rohit Surfactants Pvt Ltd (Leather and footwear division) is part of the fast growing Rohit Surfactants group with sales of US$ 400 million per annum. The Footwear & Leather Division has recorded impressive growth since inception in 1995. Rohit Surfactants Pvt Ltd (Leather & Footwear Division) has over 1200 full time employees. The group produces one of the leading FMCG brand in India marketed under the brand name of GHARI. The company markets a leather footwear brand in India by the name of RED CHIEF, all footwear made under this brand is of leather. The company is a complete leather and footwear manufacturer with its own tannery, and three footwear and a sole manufacturing plants.

Introduction to topic

Determining the Customer satisfaction Todays consumers face a growing range of choices in the products and services they can buy. They base their choices on their perceptions of quality, value, and service. A company must need to understand the determinants of consumer value and satisfaction. Consumer delivered value is the difference between total consumer value and total consumer cost. Consumers will normally choose the offer that maximizes their delivered value.

Consumer satisfaction is the outcome felt by the buyers who have experienced a companys performance that has fulfilled their expectations. Consumers are satisfied when their expectations are met, and delighted when their expectations are exceeded. Satisfied consumers remain loyal longer, buy more, are less price sensitive, and talk favorably about the company.

To create consumer satisfaction, a company must maintain their own value chains and the entire value delivery system in a consumer centered way. The companys goal is not only to get more and more people consuming its products but, even more importantly, to retain consumers.

13

Measuring Consumer Satisfaction A company can measure the consumer satisfaction in a number of ways. It can measure satisfaction directly by asking How satisfied are you with this product? Are you highly dissatisfied, somewhat dissatisfied, neither satisfied nor dissatisfied, somewhat satisfied, or highly satisfied? It can ask the respondents to rate how much they expected of certain attributes and how much they actually experienced. Finally, the company can ask respondents to list any problems they have had with the offer and to suggest improvements.

Company can take direct measures of consumer satisfaction by conducting regular surveys. They can send questionnaires or make telephone calls to a sample of recent consumers to find out how they feel about various aspects of the companys performance. They can also survey buyers views on competitors performance.

Chapter - 3 Research Methodology

59

METHODOLOGY OF THE PROJECT RESEARCH METHODOLOGY


RESEARCH METHODOLOGY is a way to systemically solve the research problem. It may be understood as a science of studying how research is done. and it to study the various steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his research problem it is necessary for the researcher to design the methodology form the problem as a method differ from problem- problem. Research methodology is a way to solve research problem along with the logic behind them. Thus when we talk of the research methodology we not only take of research method but also context of our research study and explain why we are using a particular method or techniques and why we are not using other so that research result are capable of being evaluated either by the researchers himself or by others. Research methodology means the method carried out to study the problem. It shows the type of the sample design used, its size and the procedure used to dew sample. The extent of precision achieved and the method used for handling any special problem during the course of the study. Objectives of Research The purpose of research is to discover answers to questions through the application of scientific procedures. The main aim of research is to find out the truth which is hidden and which has not been discovered as yet. Though each research study has its own specific purpose, we may think of research objectives as falling into a number of following broad groupings:
60

To gain familiarity with a phenomenon or to achieve new insights into it (studies with this object in view are termed as exploratory research studies.) To portray accurately the characteristics of a particular individual, situation or a group (studies with this object in view are known as descriptive research studies.)

To determine the frequency with which something occurs or with which it is associated with something else (studies with this object in view are known as diagnostic research studies.)

To test a hypothesis of a causal relationship between variables (such studies are known as hypothesis-testing research studies.

61

Research Process

Marketing research refers to systematic and scientific method of problem solving which consist of enunciating the problem, formulating hypothesis, collecting data and information, analyzing the fact and researching certain confusion either in the form of solution to the concern problem or in certain generalization for some theoretical formulation.

Research process consists of a number of closely related activities. Various steps involved in a research process are not mutually exclusive nor they are separate and distinct. Researcher has to be constantly anticipating at each step in the research process the requirements of the subsequent steps. However, the following order concerning various steps provides a useful procedural guideline regarding the research process:

62

Before embarking on the detail of research methodology and the techniques it seems appropriate to present the brief overview of the research process. Research process consists of series of action or steps necessary to effectively carried out the research and the desired sequencing of these steps one should remember that the desired sequencing of these steps. One should remember that various steps involve in a research process are not mutually exclusive nor they are separate and distinct they do not necessarily follow each other. any specific order and researcher have to be constantly anticipating at each steps in the research process however the following order concerning various steps provide a useful procedural guideline regarding the research process.

63

Research design
Research design is the arrangement of condition for collecting and analysis of data in manner that aim to combine relevance to research purpose with economy in procedure. I think marketing manager need to know the cost of research plan before approving, suppose the company made a prior estimate that launching a new product.

In detailed research can be grouped in four categories: Exploratory research design Descriptive research design Diagnostic research design Experimental research design

Exploratory research design Exploratory research design studies are also term as formulating research studies, the main purpose of such studies is that of formulating a for more precise investigation or of developing the working hypothesis from an operational point of view the major emphasis in such studies is on the discovery of the new idea and insights.

66

As such there research design appropriate for such studies must be flexible enough to provide opportunities for considering different aspect of a problem under study. Present research in exploratory in nature, it is aim together relevant information from the customer about their satisfaction For these research project two types of data has been used a) Primary data b) Secondary data

Primary data Primary data are those, which are collected for the first time and are those original in character, primary data are in shape of raw material to which statistical method are applied for the purpose of analysis and interpretation primary are been collected in market by three basic methods; Experiments Observation Survey method I have been collected primary data by the survey method, because of systematic gathering of data from respondents through questionnaire, which is objective oriented, unambiguous, interesting, simple, and accurate and complete in information concern.

67

Sample Size & Distribution Sample size is 100 and the method used in stratified sampling, sample distribution is scattered type.

Secondary Data
Secondary data are those which have already been collected by some other person and which have been passed through the statistical machine at least once. External Data This type of secondary data can be obtained from the outside sources such as news paper, magazine, article and websites.

68

Sampling method
Probability sampling Probability sampling is also known as chance sampling or random sampling In random sampling design, every item of the universe has an equal chance of inclusion in the sample. It is so to say, a lottery method in which individual units are picked up from the whole group not deliberately but by some mechanical process. Here it is blind chance alone that determines whether one item or the other is selected. Stratified Random Sampling: The sampling procedure may be summarized as follow: A. The universe to be sample is divided into group, Those are mutually exclusive and include all items in the universe.

B. A simple random sample is then choosen independently from each group of stratum. The process of stratified random sampling differs from simple random sampling. In the simple random sampling the distribution of sample among strata is left entirely chance.

Advantages of Sampling

Sampling can save time and money. A sample study is usually less expensive than a census study and produces results at a relatively faster speed. Sampling may enable more accurate measurement for a sample study, and is generally conducted by trained and experienced investigators.

Sampling remains the only way when the population contains infinitely many members.

Sampling remains the only choice when the test involves the destruction of the item under study.

Sampling study usually enables to estimate the sampling errors and thus assists in obtaining information concerning some characteristics of the population.

Limitations

While conducting the survey the biggest problem faced was the very wide and vast geographical area of the city and resources were limited. Hence the respondents of some localities could not be covered.

Another problem was that some people were suspicious about the survey and they refused to disclose their identity and answering the questions.

The biasness and hesitation of the respondents in giving the answers to questions.

certain

Few respondents were not available at the time of taking the feedback.

Time and money constraint was the limiting factor for the research.

Data Collection Method

Questionnaire Surveys are best suited for descriptive research. Companies undertake surveys to learn about people's knowledge beliefs, preferences, and satisfaction, and to measure their magnitudes in the general population. If the researcher wishes to ask consumer about their preferences, with respect to certain product or attributes they can do so in person by mail or by telephone. Each of these survey methods has certain advantages and disadvantages that the researcher must weigh in selecting the method of contact. The one good way of doing survey is by mailing questionnaire, mail surveys are conducted by sending questionnaire directly to individual at their home or by personal contact. A questionnaire consists of a set of questions presented to the respondent. It also contains a suitable space where the answers can be recorded. Because of its flexibility, the questionnaire is one of the most common and widely used instruments used to collect the primary data. As we know, that preparing a questionnaire is a very intellectual process and it should be developed carefully. So, in order to minimize the possibilities of biasness, we have included both types of question i.e. closed ended and open ended questions. Closed ended questions specify all the possible answers for the given question and provide answers that are easier to interpret and tabulate. Open-ended question allow the respondents to answer in their own word and often reveal more about what they think.
72

Unstructured Interviews As the term indicates, the type of interview is unstructured. In this form of interview the questions to be asked by the respondents, is not predetermined. And the interview proceeds according to the response given by the respondents. This form of interview is useful when the reaction of respondents vary. This method is also a time saving method, as only the relevant questions are asked. Level of the respondent's knowledge, skill intelligence, etc can be taken into consideration.
