(08128700 PREFACE
One must have a contemporary understand of this dynamic world to survive or
proper therein. Never in the past has the role of manager in India as crucial
and exciting as now. The on going economic reforms programme has created
infinite opportunities. There has been an increase in milk income gradually
development have broadened the knowledge of consumers. There are now become
choosy resulting in winners & looser at the same time winners those who monitors
needs, identifies opportunities and create value. It is the market place not the
factory that ultimately determines which company will succeed. Marketing is
practiced not only by manufacturing concern & their channel members but all
kinds of individuals and organization. No politician can get the required votes
to win and no “resort” the needed tourist to flourish without developing and
carrying out the sound marketing plans. Authentic market practice is not the art
of selling what you make so much as knowing what to make. It is the art of
identifying and understanding customer’s needs and coming up with solution that
satisfy them and produces riches for firm’s profitability. As we all know,
future is always uncertain. More precisely when there is volley of brilliant
competitors and each wants to be the market leader. So in the light of intense
competition satisfaction through product innovation maintaining
the standard quality their in, failing which no amount or deal of promotional
measure or scheme can compensate at length. Competitive forces have compelled
the companies to focus on specific segment of the market with frequent product
innovation and rather new products and launching thereof with greater
confidence. The present study gives special emphasis on the various strategies
to be adopted by Parag to counter Amul sales in Lucknow. The entire study has
been divided into chapters and further subdivided into segments from each
dealing with a separate aspect in a simple and lucid style and clarification has
been given top priority throughout the project. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Introduction AN INTODUCTION OF FMCG INDUSTRY The FMCG sector is a cornerstone
of the Indian economy. This sector can drive growth, enhance quality of life,
create jobs, and support penetration of technology. A vibrant FMCG sector can
boost agricultural product and export. It contributed to the exchequer
significantly, disperse technology across the value chain and usher in the
product innovation. This innovation can improve Indian Health standards.
Fast Moving Consumer Good (FMCG) industry has a long history. However, the
Indian FMCG began to take shape only during the last fifty-odd years Today, the
Indian FMCG industry continues to suffer from a definitional dilemma. In fact,
the industry is yet to crystallize in terms of definition and market, size,
among others. The definitional confusion that has marked the Indian FMCG
industry is getting confounded. Some others call it the CPG industry and some
even call it the PMCG industry. The Indian FMCG industry has suffered because of
the confusion. It is an industry which touches every aspect of human life from
looks to hygiene to palate. Perhaps defining as industry whose scope is so vast
is not so easy. The government is at crossroads not knowing how and where to
slot the Indian FMCG industry and unsurprisingly, the manner in which it has
treated an industry which holds tremendous promise as producer of goods that
pervade everyday life has been only callous. The facts that the FMCG industry is
a noteworthy employer and a major tax payer are being ignored. The only thing
that is cheering the industry are the reforms of the nineties. Post reforms, the
industries is excited about a burgeoning rural population whose income are
rising and which is a willing to spend on goods designed to improve lifestyle.
What is needed now is a change in the mindset of the mandarins, FMCG industry
-friendly legislation are the needs of the hour. It does not matter whether
changes are being brought about by dawning market realities or the ongoing
economic reforms. One thing is certain here: The Indian FMCG industry has a
promising future to look forward to.
In terms of growth potential, the Indian market is a great horse to bet on. With
a little help and understanding from the government, the Indian FMCG can realize

its true potential. So far, it has been a checked graph for the MNC’s operating
in the Indian FMCG industry. Domestic companies are only beginning to make their
presence felt in the industry. It has taken tremendous consumer insight and
market savings for the FMCG players to reach where they are today. But, the
journey has only begun.

HEALTH Parag milk shed is situated in the Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh
since independence it has formed part of the traditional supply line of
agriculture products from the village to the big cities rich in its milk
potential the milk shed has, in the source of last few decades been thoroughly
exploited by small traders and powerful contractors and well organized private
dairies. Thus, while such intermediaries were retaining large profits the rural
milk producers found their position deteriorating day by day. In 1950-a
co-operative milk supply union was organized in Lucknow , which started
collecting milk from village and supplied to Lucknow and local markets. This
milk union continued function for about a decade, in the mean time Lucknow milk
scheme was established by government of India in 1959-60 to ensure cheaper milk
to the local pollution of Lucknow. The scheme started operating through 12
chilling centers in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. These chilling centers were mainly
coated in thither district of Lucknow , Barabanki, Raebareli , Kanpur, Unnao,
Sitapur etc . The milk was mainly collected through contractors. 10 milk unions
were also found almost at the same time, around each chilling center. These
continued functioning in a rather lop-sided manner till 1977. Gradually all the
milk union almost become defunctioning and was supplying very little quantity of
milk during the years 1970-77. Obviously contractors had monopoly and collected
major share of milk which was either supplied to Lucknow or to the local
population of the city. This programmer was launched in Uttar Pradesh in 1972
and the implementing agency in the was pradeshik cooperative dairy federation
limited which was framed in the year. The basic idea was to replicate anand
pattern societies in Uttar Pradesh. In august September 1972 organization of
societies in Lucknow district was taken up bar out, Mohanlalganj,Amausi blocks.

establishing feeder balancing dairy, Lucknow co was to provide remunerative
market for milk produced in the milk shed comprising district of Lucknow ,
Barabanki, Raebareli, Kanpur and Sitapur as envisaged under operation flood-1
scheme. Thus feeder balancing dairy was oblized to receive entire surplus milk
from the rural areas, through a network of milk coop. In 1978-79 the average
handing of milk per day at fbd-Lucknow Producer’s Co-operative Milk Union Ltd
was 49,300kg. With peak handing of 1, 04,950kg in the feb. In April 1981 Lucknow
Producer’s Co-operative Milk Union Ltd launched pasteurized whole milk packed in
polythene sachet for local consumers. The supply of milk was gradually extended
to other local markets . As the basic idea of establishing FBD-Lucknow
Producer’s Co-operative Milk Union Ltd was to convert surplus milk into various
dairy-products, this activity started in sept. 1978 with manufacture of skimmed
milk powder and ghee. The manufacturing of table butter was started from April
1981. In view of milk production procurement and marketing potential of Lucknow
