Discuss Amul's Umbrella Branding and Distribution network strategy.


An umbrella brand is a brand that covers diverse kinds of products which are more or less related. It applies also to any company that is identified only by its brand and history. It is contrasted with individual branding in which each product in a portfolio is given a unique identity and brand name. Amul has high brand equity and umbrella branding of Amul has helped the company in bigger sense. Amulss brand name has helped its other brands also like Mitahi made, Amul Ice creams, chocolates, Amul Kool etc. So umbrella Brand, Amul is used to build and offer value to customers in bigger sense. In literal sense, a company has high brand equity if it has multi dimensions. Amul has explored various available opportunities to reach to mass customers. It has opened a community on public forums like orkut, sponsored events like Amul voice of India etc. The brand value of Amul will surely help company to maintain the status of largest food brand in India at least for sometime in future. Amuls strategy of using umbrella branding has really paid off. Amuls advertising and marketing spend has never exceeded 1% of its revenues. Amuls creativesin the form of billboards or the Taste of India campaignhave always managed to evoke a larger-than-life brand feel, consistency and spirit of Indian culture in a contemporary way.
