The summer training provides a student an opportunity to think, analyze and understand the real life working environment which is a little bit different to normal theory classes. Practical handling of problem gives perfection of knowledge. Our acquaintance with principle of management can be accomplished only when we bring them in practice. Learning is a continuous process. In other words, our plan of work should be definite and goal-oriented. With this view in mind I decided to go for practical training in a concern of repute like PepsiCo.

Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION
trademarked on June 16, 1903. There have been many Pepsi, Pepsi Twist, Pepsi Max, Pepsi Samba, Pepsi Blue, Pepsi Gold, Holiday Spice, Pepsi Jazz, Pepsi X (available in Finland and Brazil), Pepsi Next (available in Japan and South Korea), Raw, Pepsi Retro in Mexico and Pepsi Ice Cucumber in Japan.

Its world renowned brands are available in nearly 200 countries and territories.

Intergradient in Pepsi: Pepsi-Cola contains basic ingredients found in most other similar drinks including carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, colorings, phosphoric acid, caffeine, citric acid and natural flavors. The caffeine-free Pepsi-Cola contains the same ingredients minus the caffeine.

SOFT DRINK
A soft drinks is a non-alcoholic beverages. It is artificially flavored and contains no fruit juice or pulp. India with population of more than 100 crore is one of the largest consumer markets in the world after China. Soft drinks is a typical consumer product purchased by individuals to quench thirst and secondly for refreshment. Searching for the point of origin of Indian soft drinks I first document on Gold Spot, which was the first brand soft drinks in India? It was introduced by PARLE during later part of 40s. Cola giant, Coca -Cola was the first foreign soft drink to be introduced in India in 1965, Coca Cola made a very good beginning and dominated the whole scheme right from the world go. It (Coca-Cola) faced no competition at that time. This extraordinary success of soft drinks can be attributed to the following factors: (a) Absence of contemporary competitive brand. (b) Euphoric image build up in the Western countries preceded the entry into India Market (c) Indians are very found by nature of foreign goods, services etc.due to

prolonged foreign rules. PARLE EXPORTS PVT.LTD.Later in 1970 introduced Limca, Lemony Soft drinks. BeforeLimcaintroduced they had tentatively introduced Cola, Pepino,

12

which they had to withdraw in the face of battering confrontation with CocaCola soon. Three of four groups of Indian companies, which had the required productioncapacity, started their own brands of Cola. Lemon, Orange, but failed to achieve their goal on a national basis. The existence of Coca-Cola from India in 1977 accelerated the growth of several Indian soft drinks. New soft drink in the form of Tetra pack enters the market among Frooti, Jump-In, and Tree-top Ire the prominent once. Till 1977 their equipped bottling plants and the distribution network a longing to be of no use. It took them one year to develop new formula to survive and gradually came up with Campa,Lemon, Orange and Cola that order. However Parle, the pioneer in the soft drinks, blazed its way to national prominence with their product Thumps -Up, bearing the slogan Happy Days arehereagain. This particular slogan helped to win over the loyalists or addicts to Coca-Cola. Soon the Indian Soft drinks industries started at a phenomenal rate, and all Parle products Gold-Spot, Limca and Thumps-Up became the brand leader in their own segment. In spite of all these the drinks market still has large gap, as claim by soft drink manufacturers. To fill these gaps there are many soft drinks concentrate and squashes flooded the market. The Indian soft market basically offered three flavors i.e. Orange, Lemon, and Cola.

13

The year 1988 was the coming of the multinational company, PEPSI entering the Indian market eleven years after the existence of Coca-Cola. It had name, fame and edge of being one of the best in the game and it also offered stiff competition to Parle and Coke. Now Pepsi is going all out to prove that they are the best

THE COMPANY PROFILE:PEPSI COMPANYCalebBradham


a New Bern N.C druggist who

When Coca Cola changed its formula in 1985, Pepsi Stepped up its competition with its long time archrival claiming victory in the Cola-wars. Coke and Pepsi expended their rivalry to tea in 1991 when Pepsi formed a venture with No.1 Lipton in response to Cokes announced venture with Nestle (Nestea). Pepsi Co is going blue. This was the new color adopted by the company to strengthen its brand globally. Also the company is changed colors from Generation X to GENERATION NEXT. Although Pepsi holdings over the years have become diverse in such fields as the Snacks industry and Restaurants industry, this portfolio will discuss its core business and its highly successful business of Beverages. The soft drink industry customer base is probably the widest and deepest base in a world that is flooded with some many categories. According to Beverage Digest the customer base for soft drinks is a whopping 95% of regular users in the United States. This represents a large field of potential customers for Pepsi Cola. Pepsi prefers to segment itself as the beverage choice of the New Generation, Generation Next, or just as the Pepsi Generation. These terms adopted in Pepsis advertising campaigns are referring to the markets that marketers refer to as Generation X. The Generation X consumer is profiled to be between the ages of 18 to 29. They have high expectations in life and are very mobile and active. They adopt a lifestyle of living for today and not worrying about long-term goals. Those Pepsis main emphasis on this segment they also have a focus on the 12 to 18 year old market. Pepsi believes if they can get this market to adopt their product then they could establish a loyal customer for life.

17

Pepsi Cola throughout its 100 years of existence has developed much strength. One of the strengths that have developed Pepsi into such a large corporation is a strong franchise system. The strong franchise system was the backbone of success along with a great entrepreneur spirit. Pepsis franchise system and distributors is credited to bring Pepsi from a 7,968 gallons of soda sold in 1903 to nearly 5 billion gallons in the year of 1997. Pepsi also has the luxury to spend 225 million dollars in advertising a year. This enormous ad budget allows Pepsi to reinforce their products with reminder advertising and promotions. This large budget also allows Pepsi to introduce new products and very quickly make the consumer become aware of their new products. Pepsi also has had the good fortune of making very wise investments. Some of the best investments have been in their acquiring several large fast food restaurants. They have also made wise investments in snack food companies like Frito Lay, which at present time is the largest snack company in the world. Probably high on the list of strengths is Pepsis beverage line up.

18

Pepsi has four soft drinks in the top ten beverages in the world. These brands are Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Diet Pepsi, and Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi. Some other strong brands are All Sport, Slice, Tropicana, Starbucks, Aquarian and a license agreement with Ocean Spray Juices.

Introducton to the Study:


Beverage industry is one of the fast growing industries in India. It can be divided in to two sections i.e. carbonated and non-carbonated. The carbonated drinks that furtherclassified in to cola, lemon, orange, mango and apple segments.

In partial fulfillment of the above mentioned course a project was undertaken by me on the topicSALES AND DISTRIBUTION , AND COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS BETWEEN PEPSI AND COCA COLA PRODUCT OFFERS. To know the facts regarding the above topic, I did a market survey particularly for customers, retailers and distribution in Allahabad.My interest was Marketing includes all the activities like promotion, distribution, advertising etc.Marketing is also to convert social needs in to profitable opportunities. So this topic provides all the essentials to theoretical as well as practical knowledge and to inculcate its efficiencies. It will help the company ultimately to achieve their goals. The soft drinks companies are experiencing a boom in soft drinks, although growth of other cold drinks is not quite encouraging. The markets of soft drinks are mainly triggered by the entry of two players i.e. coca cola and Pepsi. PepsiCo India is striding ahead rapidly towards enabling the global vision to be the world's premier consumer products company focused on convenience foods and beverages. PepsiCoIndia seeks to produce healthy financial rewards for investors as it provide opportunities of growth and enrichment to its employees, business partners and

42

the communities in which it operates. PEPSI has gained its dominance in terms of beverages as well as food. to look in to customer perception and satisfaction level about PepsiCo with other beverages present in the market. The company wants to give maximum satisfaction to its customers, so that they can get good value for their capital. The company wants to know whether the consumers are satisfied with their services or not? Whether consumers have faced any problem with the product and if any then what type of problem they are facing? Whether the retailers are satisfied with the promotional schemes of the company? What should be the changes that will improve the quality of services? What are the competitive advantages the company has over the competitors and where the company lacks? What are the opportunity and threats in the external environment and how the company scheme for the opportunity and how the company overcome this threats? Since this study was aimed at knowing the customer as well as retailers satisfaction dissatisfaction level and therefore it required to collect information related to quality pf services provided by PepsiCo Company as well as about its competitors.

All contributions and support of U.S. or state political parties, committees or candidates from the CCF or corporate funds must be made in accordance with applicable campaign finance and disclosure laws. Coercion of any employee to contribute to the CCF or to make any political contribution of any kind is unacceptable. Our employees have the right to be engaged in the political process in their individual capacity as they see fit, and make political contributions of their own time and money to the candidates or parties of their choice. Of course, those efforts must not in any way suggest PepsiCo's support. Management and supervisory employees who are citizens of the United States may voluntarily contribute to the CCF. PepsiCo employees must obtain approval of the Corporate Vice President Public Policy & Government Affairs before making political contributions of corporate funds. All contributions must be reviewed by the corporate law department to ensure legal compliance. All payments from the CCF to support U.S. or state political parties, committees or candidates must be approved by the CCF Executive Committee. PepsiCo generally does not provide contributions from corporate funds to candidates outside the United States. Any exception to this would require a written recommendation by PepsiCos regional government affairs representative and approval by (1) the Corporate Vice President of Public Policy & Government Affairs and (2) the corporate and regional law departments to ensure strict legal compliance.

COMPETITORS:

The Coca-Cola Company has historically been considered PepsiCo s primary competitor in the beverage market, and in December 2005, PepsiCo surpassed The Coca-Cola Company in market value for the first time in 112 years since both companies began to compete. In 2009, the Coca-Cola Company held a higher market share in carbonated soft drink sales within the U.S.In the same year, PepsiCo maintained a higher share of the U.S. refreshment beverage market, however, reflecting the differences in product lines between the two companies. As a result of mergers,

50

acquisitions and partnerships pursued by PepsiCo in the 1990s and 2000s, its business has shifted to include a broader product base, including foods, snacks and beverages. The majority of PepsiCo's revenues no longer come from the production and sale of carbonated soft drinks. Beverages accounted for less than 50 percent of its total revenue in 2009. In the same year, slightly more than 60 percent of PepsiCo's beverage sales came from its primary non-carbonated brands, namely Gatorade and Tropicana Two primary reasons contributed to domination of Coca Cola in the international market, with one as mentioned above was the strategy Coca-Cola used when investing in a foreign market. Coca-Cola entered foreign markets differently than Pepsi, providing it an edge over Pepsi. While Pepsi invested heavily in foreign markets, Coca-Colas appointed bottlers with significant experience easily neutralized any threat PepsiCo could pose. The second reason Coca-Cola holds such a dominant position in world market is due to World War II. During World War II, Coca-Cola offered American servicemen its product for 5 Cents, wherever they were and whatever the costs the company would incur. The company would establish bottling plants (subsidized by US government), and send its product overseas wherever US troops went. With its inexpensive price, and widespread popularity among servicemen, coupled with the eventual victory of US in Europe and Asia, the product was widely adopted throughout Europe and Asia. Due to familiarity of the product, Coca-Cola still retains a dominant position throughout Europe and Asia.

51

Quick and prompt to their service. This company is more dominant and securing a positive image in the market. Regular to their service. More chillers are made available in comparison to Pepsi. Scheme is properly conveyed to shopkeepers. Close watch on current market trends.

NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL IMAGE:


PEPSI-THE INDIAN EXPERIENCE
Pepsi is one of the most well known brands in the world today available in over 160 countries. The company has an extremely positive outlook for India. "Outside North America two of our largest and fastest growing businesses are in India and China, which include more than a third of the worlds population." (PepsiCos annual report, 1999). This reflects that India holds a central position in Pepsis corporate strategy. India is a key market for PepsiCo, and at the same time the company has added value to Indian agriculture and industry. PepsiCo entered India in 1989 and is concentrating in three focus areas Soft drink concentrate, Snack foods and Vegetable and Food processing. Faced with the existing policy framework at the time, the company entered the Indian market through a joint venture with Voltas and Punjab Agro Industries. With the introduction of the liberalization policies since 1991, Pepsi took complete control of its operations. The government has approved more than US$ 400 million worth of investments of which over US$ 330 million have already flown in. One of PepsiCos key strategies was to develop a completely local management team. Pepsi has 19 company owned factories while their Indian bottling partners own 21. The two advertisements tags: yehihai right choice baby and nothing official about it immediately ring a bell- its got to be Pepsi.

53

The advertisement tag yehihai right choice baby was the first Hinglish slogan ever used in the in the Indian market. This slogan proved to be the best suited one for Pepsi and it was a mega hit and at that moment of time. Pepsi in a short span of its operations in India has found a place in the hearts and minds of the Indian consumers. The success has primarily been due to the innovative and passionate Indian team, which has been built over the years. Pepsi is a trendsetter managed and run by Indians, where important decisions are taken locally. Pepsi started its operations in India in 1989 and since then PepsiCo has set up a fully integrated operation in India viz. Manufacturing, Research & Development, Marketing, Distribution and Franchising- covering fruit/vegetable processing, Exports, Snack, and Foods & Beverages. In the mean time Pizza Hut and Frito Lays are the examples in this regard only. Pepsi has 40 bottling plants in India, out of which 16 are company owned and 24 are owned by Indian franchisees. One of the major players in franchisee is RKJ Group. The RKJ group is India's leading supplier of retailer brand Carbonated and Non-Carbonated soft drinks, with beverage manufacturing facilities in India and Nepal.

68

Whatever the subject taught in the class room of MBA course that is completely theoretical. So during the training period we compare how the marketing research (sales) activities (practical) of our organization with the theories.

IMPORTANCE AND RELEVANCE OF THE STUDY Cold drinks were started with the idea of quenching the thirst of the persons traveling. It was also felt that reliable good water was not available everywhere. So people would really on their packed bottle and with this idea its makers made these drinks available mostly, at those places where water was not available i.e. on highways and long distance trains. But slowly and slowly with its beautiful taste these become very popular and now they are available not only in the market and street corners, but also people have started keeping it in their house. The credit of popularizing the soft drink goes to Coca Cola. This was the drink which is liked by all ladies, gents and children. Now days soft drinks are quenching thirst looks more often; they are taken due to habits. Gold Sport is considered as the first branded soft drinks, established 53 years ago before all empowering Coca Cola faced competitions and its euphoric image built up in the western countries helped it get ready clientele and clamor. Parle Export Pvt. Ltd. is regarded as the first Indian Company introducing Limca a leman drink complementary to

69

it this has also introduced Cola Pepone which was withdrawn in the face of tough competition from Coca Cola. When Coca Cola bid a Farwell in 1977, Indian market was open for various new forward publishing different brands in the markets. Parle people introduced their Cola, Thumps Up with a mighty saying Happy days are here again as if happy days went away with Coca Cola. Pure drinks of Delhi also without lasing much introduced pure drinks were producing and marketing Coca Cola earlier Campa Cola with Campa orange and Campa lemon. Modern Bakeries entered the market with Double Cola Seven, Mohan Makings with Merry &Plkup and McDowell with Thrill, Rush and Sprint. This is Indian market where there was no competition and high voltage advertising was on each one was trying their best to become number one company with A class product in the field of Soft Drink business. Now after a long gap government of India had given permission to Coca Cola, which joined with Parle to do business in India. They are trying their best to regain prestige which it had before. The much rival of Parle is Pepsi an American concern. It started business on the Indian soil just a few years ago. Today, it has occupied 62% shares of Soft Drinks market in India. Now Pepsi is going all out to prove that they are the best. But now due to some factors competition among them has become stiffen. So in this way the important activities have increased.

DEALER-SURVEY:
Dealer-survey, as the word indicates, is the survey of every dealer of soft drinks in the area. For our practical purpose, the dealer not only includes the authorized dealers, but it also includes all the retailers-big or small grocery shops, stationary, restaurants, beetles shop etc., besides these, the various exclusive stalls and sales of pantry cars are also included in it. In a nutshell, by dealer survey, I mean who is dealing with the soft drink in someway or the other in large or small quantity directly or indirectly. Thus,my study includes all such dealers,which includes following aspects: No.of routes covered by depot Crate strength Per day sale

75

Chilling ad Nature of outlet

Schemes of Pay-off
I had to visit each and every outlet and personally interview them. In order to know the market share of Pepsi and its competitors. I have conducted a survey in Patna and its surrounding area. By the help of survey, I can find out the reason behind non-availability of Pepsi in the specified area. The knowledge of case-stock indicates our case-in-trade and that of competitors. This will indicate our case-velocity which will help to plan our bottle as whether our distribution is effective or not. If my case-stock is low then may decide for a case stocking campaign. Feedback from marketing place regarding servicing of dealers will help us to improve our service in the lacked areas. Therefore, appropriate marketing strategy can be worked out depending upon the findings. Some more uses of dealer-survey,

Channel of Distribution of Lumbini Beverages Pvt. Ltd. Allahabad


To make its products available at the right places at the right time in the market, the sales department of the company pays major attention on controlling the channels of distribution. Single type of markets channel is maintained by the company right from its pioneering stage. The nature of the channel is as follows:Company

Distributors

Dealers

Different Outlet Owners Consumers

78

At first the soft drinks supplied to the distributors directly. Retailers or owners of any outlet can not take the delivery from company. They have to take the products from their respective or nearest distributor. There are about 50 distributors and innumerable number of retail outlets operating with the company in its entire market areas which contains total Bihar. In all the important places of entire territory this company has its distributors. These distributors selected on the basis of assurance given by them regarding the minimum sales which they have to maintain annually. The selection is also done on the basis of the financial position and reputation of distributor in the market. As for example in appointing a distributor first engaged in soft drink business second priority is given to those people who are in cigarette selling business. Depending upon the market, each distributor in the initial stage has to deposit some security money.The retailers are selected by the distributor fixed criteria for the selection or appointment or retailers from the side of the distributor. Any one like Panwala, Cigarettewala or any other shopkeeper can have the stall for the sale of soft drinks and they are called retailers or outlet owners. They have to give assurance to the concerning distributor for better sale and at the time of taking delivery they have to deposit the security i.e. the charges if the empty bottles with specified retailers purchasing price. The charges if the empty bottles with specified retailers purchasing price. The distributor at first has to seek the permission of sales department for the number of cases of soft drinks required by them. After getting the proper authority from sales department paying the requisite amount either cash or demand draft.

79

WAREHOUSING Every company has to store its finished goods until they sold. A strong facility is necessary because production and consumption cycles rarely match. Warehousing is not a simply storing activity but a package of services that enables the smooth running of the industry. The stores must be in constant touch with the use department in order to provide uninterrupted services to the manufacture and its decision since working capital is locked up in the warehousing stores in equal to money. The stores functions can be organized in the following manner:a) To receive raw material components equipments etc. b) To meet the demand of use department by issuing the order c) Accounting the transaction properly. d) Minimizing obsolescence surplus and scrap by right identification and using correct preservation method. The company supply finished products frequently to different distributors as per the demand.

80

Every distributor keeps a minimum stock of different products of the product line so that the uninterrupted supply could not affect. In the industrial sector service of optimization where boils down to any exercise of optimization where limited available resources are to be distributed equitably.The problem arises from the material that are in stock the form of capital cost, storage loss, pilferage obsolescence, insurance, handling, documentation etc. Services level that can be maintained and hence the concept stores in money should be understood by every body in the organization. INVENTORY DECISION (1) Branding and Packaging Out of the total market activities some are directly performed and controlled by Lumbini Beverages Pvt. Ltd. itself some are followed according to the standing instruction of Pepsi Foods Pvt. Ltd. So far as the process of branding and packaging is concerned the Lumbini Beverages Pvt. Ltd. Along with the authorized bottle in India adopt the same pattern. (2) Wholesaling Wholesaling includes all the activities involved in selling goods or services to those who buy for resale or business use. Manufactures use wholesalers because wholesalers can perform function better and more cost effectively than the manufacture can. These functions are not limited to selling and promoting, buying

81

and assortment building bulk barking, warehousing, transporting financial risk bearing dissemination of marketing information and provision of management services and consulting.

(3) Retailing Retailing includes all the activities involved in selling goods or services directly to find consumer for their personal non-business use. A retailer or retail store is any enterprise which sales volume comes primarily formretailing.All marketer retailers must prepare marketing plans that include decision on target market.So the marketing channels can be viewed as a set of interdependent organization with high potential for conflict. Then why would any business chosen to become part of channel system. TRANSPORTATION:-Transportation is life blood of business management and commerce. The purchase offices job in incomplete until and unless he ensures that the material is shipped from the vendors premises located in different areas to his organization. Purchasing the transportation is a key element in his job particularly in the context of the transportation cost.In deciding to transporting models shippers can choose from private contract and common carriers. Transport decisions must consider the complex trade off between various transportation mode and their implications for other distribution elements such as warehousing and inventory.

A THEORETICAL FRAME WORK OF CHANNEL OF DISTRIBUTION Marketing channels are sets of interdependent organization involved in the process of making a product or service available for use or consumption. The main objective of the marketing process is to distribute the products to the actual users. This function involves a number of sub-functions to be performed by a producer or manufacturer. These two functions are most important first, the creation of demand is made through the process of advertising and sales promotion activities. On the other hand the distribution through the channels of distribution. The decision relating to the channel of distribution is a very important decision from the firm point of view because the selected channels affect considerable other marketing decision. Such decisions are of long term nature and exercise their impact on the cost structure of the firm also. By channel distribution mean the intermediaries or the process through which the goods products are transferred from the producer to the ultimate users. Now a day any of the producers possibly do not sell their goods directly to the final users. There are a lot of intermediaries between producers and consumer, bearing a variety of name performing various kinds of function. Some intermediaries like wholesalers and retailers buy and resale taking the bill. They are known as merchant middle men and other are brokers, representative sales agent who seeks or search for customers and negotiate on the behalf of the producer but do not take of goods.

Even though many variation of specific objective fits into some categories.

To bearing maximum profits of all institutions concerned a channel of distribution should be treated as a unit of total system of action. The activities of the manufacturer need to be coordinated with these middlemen used in the distribution of given product. The important of middlemen in channel of distributional can be over emphasized. It is that who1. Collects concentrates the output of various producers, 2. Subdivides these into lot desired by the customers gathers various items together in the assortment wanted and 3. Disperses the assortment to consumer industrial buyers.

LIMITATION OF RESEARCH
As I was asked to carry on my vocational training I found the following limitations during my training period. So I could not collect all information regarding my topic. 1) It was not possible to understand thoroughly about the different marketing aspects of soft drinks in a span of two months. 2) The survey was conduced in the peak season when the sale was too high by this I cannot get the appropriate result. 3) 4) Money as no stipend was given, it was difficult to cover a wide area. All the work was limited in Patna area, so the finding should not be generalized .the finding of survey will be strictly based on the response of consumer, retailer/dealers since it is difficult to ascertain the authenticity of their statement. 5) 6) Shortage of time factor was one of the biggest constraints. Most stress was given on the primary data as it was difficult to collect secondary data from the organization and distribution since it is difficult to ascertain the authenticity of their statements. 7) All the observation and recommendation will be made on the feed back obtained from survey.

108

SWOT ANALYSIS
STRENGTH
The customer faith in Pepsi beverages results in creating a great demand for Pepsi in spite of its weaknesses.

WEAKNESS
Improper supply of brand i.e. Pepsi Low availability of chiller. Timely supplies are not given to retailers.

OPPORTUNITIES
1. LBPLmakes the process more convenient and efficient (it provides the Pepsi

product at required places i.e. direct to distributors and to retailers through distribution). 2. The executive of company have more interaction with retailers to meet the need for getting more information and advice for distributors/retailers/customers. 3. Replace market damages at regular intervals.

THREATS
1. Coca-cola is putting up more chilling equipments to boost up the sale at all channels of retails.

109

SUGGESTION
Lumbini Beverages Pvt. Ltd. should introduce some change in its marketing function and advertising to market more rational. The following factors to be worthy of consideration: A complain Register should be provided by the company to every distributor in every route so that, retailers/customers can write their problems. The complain register should be checked by consumer executive and depot in charge at time to time. A clear notification should be given to teach distributor and each route agent to give cash memo (with printed number) and maintain route card for every transaction. Proper care should be given the companys employees at the time of scheme close. Signature of scheme receiving on the cash memo should be taken and it should be also maintained in route card. Claim of scheme should be passed after the deeply study of above three points i.e. difference between opening stock and closing, signature of scheme receiving on the cash memo and sells maintained in the route card. Some retailers keep other companies products in the Pepsis fridge, while is provided by the company. To check additional scheme be given in every month, in the peak seasons After the checking of Pepsis Fridge (3or 4 times in every month ) if It is found that retailer does not keep other companies products in the Pepsis Pepsi fridge the claim of scheme should be passed . Thus we can improve/increase its sell and employees activities.

110

CONCLUSION
1. The whole analysis show that there are only two companies dominating in the soft drinks market Pepsi and coca-cola. 2. Coca-cola has invested more in the market. Distribution of VISI coolers and display of glow sign board but after that Pepsi give him very tuff competition. 3. Most of the dealers want glow signboard and chilling equipments, which they are asking for long time. 4. In the cola segment thumbs-up and lime segment sprit is the main competitors of Pepsi. But mountain dew lonely defeats them. 5. 6. Due to high demand,there is crisis in the market. Pepsi is more sweet and low fizz. Soft drinks that every body knows and it is not like by customer, to catch the customers. 7. Pepsi should provide more supporting goods which is helpful to enhance the market share of the Pepsi. 8. Try to always satisfy the dialers which may be a big factor to enhance the market share. 9. 10. 11. Should be a proper supply of Pepsi product in the market. Should be proper interaction between dealers and company employee. Pepsi has the entire flavor i.e. Cola, Leman, Orange, Mango in the market and its market share is comparatively more than Coke.

111

12. 13.

The majority of the retailers deal in all brands of Pepsi and Coca-Cola. One of the major drawbacks of Pepsi products is that all the flavors do not reach at each and every retail outlets but competitors products do reach that is why competitor enters in to Pepsi exclusive outlets .

14.

It should be checked that whether our products is reaching to the outlets timely and regularly or not.

15.

There is irregular in the supply of Visi-cooler, some retailers, which sell more are not provided Visi-cooler which some retailers, which sell less, are provided visicooler.

16. 17.

Most of the retailers are in need of board but not provided by the Pepsi Company. Most of the retailers especially small retailers have complained that the sales man does not inform about any sales promotional scheme.

18.

The big retailers of Pepsi do not maintain the purity in the Visi-cooler and dictate their own terms and conditions.
