through 2000 distributors with presence across 3 lakh retail outlets in India.
The Company is having a market share of around 25-33% taking into consideration the factor
like price, quality, and brand. Market share can also be evaluated on the area wise segmentation.
For e.g, In Rourkela, Bus Stand area anmol is contributing only 5% of the market share as the
major of the market share is divided among Mukund, Jaya etc.
Competition – The Company is facing competition form Britannia, Sunfeast, Parle-G, Mukund,
Jaya, Sujata, Biskfarm in terms of price, quality, market share and most importantly brand. Many
products can be compared with Anmol Biscuit.

The Customers – For understanding the customer first we have to know the product of the
company. It offer a wide range of biscuits such as Cream Biscuit, Sweet Biscuit, Salted Biscuit,
Cakes, Sweet and Salted Biscuit, Sugar Free Biscuit and Rusks which are manufactured using
premium quality ingredients such as maida, sugar and vanaspathi, and are widely acknowledged

The customer is more concerned on the quality as well as cost aspect therefore the company aims
at keeping the old customers as well as making new customers. The customers are segmented on
the basis of geographic, age, income, social class, and psychographic. The consumers of Anmol
biscuits mainly children but there are some products which are focused on each section of age
group of people. There are certain products as family packs which are consumed by the family.
The buying pattern of the customers regarding the Anmol products depends on the demand of the
products by the population.

The Competition - Many products can be compared with Anmol Biscuit as they are similar.
For e.g., 2 in 1 from Anmol its counterpart 3 in 1 from Mukund. Marie is common in almost
every company and is produced under different names like Marie, Marie Time from Anmol;
Marie gold form Britannia; Marie Light from Sunfeast. So in order to make the market of one
product we have to fight with other similar product of different companies.

PROBLEMS / CONSTRAINTS / LIMITATIONS


Many barriers were faced in my 3 month of IP. Some of them are as follows:

• Low market coverage area by distributors- As the condition is worst the distributors
are covering fewer shops which ultimately affect the demand of the product and also the
sales.
• Lack of time management-This happens in the way of the dispatch of the vehicle from
the warehouse.

• “No “means “no”- Once a shop owners tell they won`t keep the product it find difficult
to convince them.

• Obstacles in terms of Schemes, discounts, offers- During my IP I came to know that


fewer shop owners are unaware of the latest scheme which the company has launched.

• Seasonal demand problem-As I was doing my work in summer I also came to know
that biscuit industry is also affected by seasonal demand. During summer the demand is
low as compared to winter.

• Change in taste and preference pattern- As there is a change in taste and preference in
the customers so their opinion also shifts to another company form time to time as a
result sales decreases for certain products.

• Lack of responsibility- I also notice that nobody take responsibility. For e.g, if a shop is
not visited for 2 weeks then they continue to do the same activity as a result I have to face
complains form the shop owners and also almost we have lost one of our existing
customers.

• Language barrier- In the form of oriya.

• Similar type plus new products of other companies- Most of the company produces
similar product so there are similar products under different brand names. For e.g,
Anmol`s coconutty is facing competition from Mukund`s coco bite.

• Lack of media approach- This happens in the form of Advertisement, banners etc.

• No credit system from distributors - As the distributor don`t extend the credit period so
some shop owners take this personally.

• Strange trend of the customers- I also noticed that as this is the last month of the
retailer`s scheme then also some shop owners are not placing heavy orders and at the end
they go for flattery in the form of asking for some help form the company representative.
LEARNING IN THE EXECUTIVE TRAINING

Achieving target is difficult but not impossible. Generally doing direct marketing is a difficult
task but this is the only field where one person can learn so many things like customer behavior,
attitude, responses, understanding his needs and want.

Working with different situation it’s enhancing our skills, knowledge, and physical with mental
ability to work with stressful situation and challenging environment. Target makes us more
carrier focused, responsible and to work with work pressure. It is a result oriented function so it
create a awareness to finish that target within the assigned time, it has a great impact on the
students to became a professional

To fulfill the target task is the most important component, implemented, and administrated
benefit programs leads to achieving target. Do the task properly is improving our managerial
skills, interpersonal skill. The main aim of target and task is to know how in future we will
manage our subordinate.

Overall it’s preparing us to achieve our future goals it is providing us a platform to stand, to sell
our knowledge, and to compete with the coming market.
CONCLUSION
It is a good opportunity given to me through INC system to utilize my three month time toward a
prospering company like Anmol Biscuits Limited. Within my first month of Summer Internship
Program (S.I.P) I came across to different types of persons in the form of distributors,
salespersons, retailers, wholesalers and also to consumers. Some strange trend was also noticed
by me. Many obstacles were faced by me during this period which made me stronger to achieve
my target giving a boost to my creativity. Observation and also taking suggestions from my
friends were also helpful to me up to certain extent. Time to time gong for surveys and other
activities I was able to develop my own strategies Failures will be there but how to overcome
those failures and turn them into your success in the true managerial skill which I am learning.
The strategies use in this month may not work in next month. There will be addition and
subtraction of strategies. The only thing that matters is the achievement of target/task.

As far as target/tasks are concerned it will become tougher week by week opening doors to a
whole new world making me capable to manage any situation without fear. Surely will develop
managerial skills.
