EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The word Biscuit derives from the Latin word 'Bis' (meaning 'twice') and 'Coctus' (meaning cooked or baked). There is nurture; creation and determination behind munch of every crunchy Biscuit. According to tradition, biscuits first appeared ten thousand years ago in China, where dry rice pies with sesame and fruits were made. Other old stories mention that the Assyrians used to prepare thin rusks made of barley and wheat dough, which they placed then in clay vases and baked them on embers. In Indian market Britannia Industries first introduce biscuit in 1892. It started its business from Kolkata. Later, the enterprise was acquired by the Gupta brothers mainly Nalin Chandra Gupta, a renowned attorney, and operated under the name of "V.S. Brothers." in 1918. And then Parle Agro comes into India at 1929. Parle Products was founded in 1929 in British India. It was owned by the Chauhan family of Vile Parle Mumbai. The Parle brand became well known in India following the success of products such as the Parle-G biscuits and Thums Up soft drink. After that many company cover the whole bakery market. Consumer is the king of the market, so it is very important to attract the consumer by offering the consumer schemes and take more attention of customers. In competitive market, it is necessary to attract consumer as well as retailers and wholesalers to push the brand and increase the sale of the product. In FMCG industry competition is tough so every company is making offers and schemes to increase the sales. So it is necessary to know the different schemes and offers made by different companies. The main purpose of the study is to find out the consumers and trade schemes run by different biscuit companies. I appointed in Bareilly region to do a survey on different consumer and trade schemes offered by different biscuit companies in Bareilly. We have chosen five top biscuit brands, Britannia, Parle, Sunfeast, Priyagold and Anmol. We prepared two questionnaire; one for wholesaler and other for retailer. Our questionnaire includes consumer schemes, retailer schemes and wholesaler schemes offered by the companies. Other purpose of the study is to suggest consumer and trade schemes to Anmol biscuits on the basis of most preferred and desirable scheme offered by the companies. For this purpose I choose primary data as well as secondary data to collect information from the retailers and wholesalers. I went to wholesalers and retailers and collect information from them about offers and schemes run by different biscuit companies. I collect secondary data from internet, magazines and Newspapers.

“Efficient work is not enough; you have to do effective work. Do effective work and collect more and more information because efficiency will show your work not effectiveness of your work”. These are the lines said by our industry mentor; Mr. Mritunjay Sharma. It is not an easy task to collect data from all wholesalers and retailers in Bareilly due to shortage of time and availability of market so I choose 50 retailers and 10 wholesalers as sample size. We used multistage sampling technique to select the sample, at first stage we used random sample technique to select markets in Bareilly and at secondary stage we choose convenience sampling technique. We got a structured questionnaire from the company to collect the data and information. I made some changes in that questionnaire and add some questions which were important to collect full information regarding my project. We used Ms Word, Excel and SPSS software to analysis the data and prepare report. These are the some tools and techniques which I used in analysis of the data.

INTRODUCTION
1.1. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW
India Biscuits Industry came into major existence and started gaining a sound status in the bakery industry in the later part of 20th century when the urbanized society called for readymade food products at a tenable cost. Biscuits were assumed as sick-man's diet in earlier days. But today it has become one of the most loved fast food products for every age group. Biscuits are always easy to carry, tasty to eat, cholesterol free and reasonable at cost. States that have the larger intake of biscuits are Maharashtra, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Uttar Pradesh. Maharashtra and West Bengal are the most industrially developed states; hold the maximum amount of consumption of biscuits. Even, the rural sector consumes around 55 % of the biscuits in the bakery products. Indian Biscuits Industry seems to be the largest among all the food industries and has a turnover of around Rs.3000 crore. Indian subcontinent is known to be the second largest manufacturer of biscuits, the first being USA. The industry is classified under two sectors: organized and unorganized. Bread and biscuits are the major part of the bakery industry and covers around 80 % of the total bakery products in India. Biscuits today stand at a higher value and production level than bread. This belongs to the unorganized sector of the bakery Industry and covers over 70% of the total production. In the year 1990 the total production of bakery products have risen from 5.19 lakh tones in 1975 to 18.95 lakh tones. Today Biscuits contributes to over 33 % of the total production of bakery and above 79 % of the biscuits are manufactured by the small scale sector of bakery industry comprising both factory and non-factory units in the country. The production capacity of wafer biscuits is 60 MT and the cost is Rs.56, 78,400 with a motive power of 25 K.W. Indian biscuit industry has occupied around 55-60 % of the entire bakery production. Today the large scale bakery manufacturers like Cadbury, Nestle, and Brooke bond had traded in the biscuit industry but couldn't hit the market because of the local companies that produced only biscuits. Government has established The Federation of Biscuit Manufacturers of India (FBMI) which has confirmed a bright future of India Biscuits Industry in the year 1953. According to FBMI, a steady growth of 15 % per annum in the next 10 years will be achieved by the biscuit industry of India. Besides, the export of biscuits will also surpass the target and hit the global market successfully.

Today the total production of biscuits in India is estimated to be around 30 lakh MT, the organized sector accounts for 65% and the unorganized sector accounts for 35% of the total industry volume and the organized sector is valued at above Rs 8000 crores. While the the biscuit industry is estimated to grow over 15-17% in the next few years. The biscuits per capita consumption in India is 2.0 kg. India is ranked 3rd after US and China amongst the global biscuits producers. The export of biscuits is approximately 17% of the annual production, the export of sweet biscuits for year 2007-08 was Rs 145.93 Cr and for year 2008-09(April-Dec) was Rs 280 Cr, the major exporting regions were Haiti, Angola, USA, Ghana, UAE. The imports are not significant amount as compared to the total consumption. The penetration of biscuits in India among the urban and rural market is 85% and 55% respectively. The annual turnover for the organized sector of the biscuit manufacturers at 2001-02 is Rs. 4,350 crores. The annual Growth showed a decline of 3.5% in 2000-01, mainly due to 100% hike in Central Excise Duty (from 9% to 16%) by the government. Production in the year 2001-02 increased very marginally by 2.75% where in 2002-03 the growth is around 3%. Government took initiative for the development as The Union Budget for 2003-04 granted 50% reduction in the rate of Excise Duty on Biscuit i.e. from 16% to 8%. The Federation's estimate indicates a growth of approximately 8% to 9% per year. According to the NCAER analysis, biscuits are predominantly consumed by people from the lower strata of society, particularly children in both rural and urban areas with an average monthly income of Rs. 750and above. Biscuit can he broadly categorized into the following segments: (Based on productions of 2010-11) Glucose 29% Marie 13% Cream 23% Crackers 13% Milk 12% Others 10%

Latest developments Indian biscuit market is 1.1 million tones per annum at Rs 50 billion. About 90% of Indians buy and eat biscuits. According to estimates the bakery industry in India is worth Rs 69 billion. Out of which bread and biscuits hold about 82% of the share. The bread market has a business volume of 1.5 million tones. The major factors for growth in this segment are: Brand loyalty, volumes and strong distribution networks. Growth in the over 40-year-old Indian biscuit industry has remained slow. The analyst's calculations will show that per capita consumption is less than Rs 3 per month on biscuits or less than Rs 15 per household per month. Back in 2003, nobody thought Sunfeast would have consumers eating out of its hands. According to the AC Nielsen retail sales audit in March 2006, both Britannia and Parle have lost volumes. Britannia's shares have dropped from 35.8 % in 2004-05 to 30.5 % in May 2006 (volumes). Parle's shares have also dropped from 42.2 to 38.4 % in the same period.

1.2.1.3. BRITANNIA
The story of one of India's favourite brands reads almost like a fairy tale. Once upon a time, in 1892 to be precise, a biscuit company was started in a nondescript house in Calcutta (now Kolkata) with an initial investment of Rs. 295. The company we all know as Britannia today. The beginnings might have been humble-the dreams were anything but. By 1910, with the advent of electricity, Britannia mechanised its operations, and in 1921, it became the first company east of the Suez Canal to use imported gas ovens. Britannia's business was flourishing. But, more importantly, Britannia was acquiring a reputation for quality and value. As a result, during the tragic World War II, the Government reposed its trust in Britannia by contracting it to supply large quantities of "service biscuits" to the armed forces. As time moved on, the biscuit market continued to grow… and Britannia grew along with it. In 1975, the Britannia Biscuit Company took over the distribution of biscuits from Parry's who till now distributed Britannia biscuits in India. In the subsequent public issue of 1978, Indian shareholding crossed 60%, firmly establishing the Indianness of the firm. The following year, Britannia Biscuit Company was re-christened Britannia Industries Limited (BIL). Four years later in 1983, it crossed the Rs. 100 crores revenue mark. On the operations front, the company was making equally dynamic strides. In 1992, it celebrated its Platinum Jubilee. In 1997, the company unveiled its new corporate identity - "Eat Healthy, Think Better" - and made its first foray into the dairy products market. In 1999, the "Britannia Khao, World Cup Jao" promotion further fortified the affinity consumers had with 'Brand Britannia'. Britannia strode into the 21st Century as one of India's biggest brands and the pre-eminent food brand of the country. It was equally recognised for its innovative approach to products and marketing: the Lagaan Match was voted India's most successful promotional activity of the year 2001 while the delicious Britannia 50-50 Maska-Chaska became India's most successful product launch. In 2002, Britannia's New Business Division formed a joint venture with Fonterra, the world's second largest Dairy Company, and Britannia New Zealand Foods Pvt. Ltd. was born. In recognition of its vision and accelerating graph, Forbes Global rated Britannia 'One amongst the Top 200 Small Companies of the World', and The Economic Times pegged Britannia India's 2nd Most Trusted Brand.
25

Today, more than a century after those tentative first steps, Britannia's fairy tale is not only going strong but blazing new standards, and that miniscule initial investment has grown by leaps and bounds to crores of rupees in wealth for Britannia's shareholders. The company's offerings are spread across the spectrum with products ranging from the healthy and economical Tiger biscuits to the more lifestyle-oriented Milkman Cheese. Having succeeded in garnering the trust of almost one-third of India's one billion population and a strong management at the helm means Britannia will continue to dream big on its path of innovation and quality. And millions of consumers will savour the results, happily ever after.

Following this strategy, we diversified into manufacturing of “fruit juices” through our wholly owned subsidiary “Surya Fresh Foods Ltd.” in January 2006. The manufacturing facility is located at Greater Noida, U.P. We have consciously invested in creating markets for fruit juices and have established brands such as “Fresh Gold” & “Treat”. Both the brands are also well established and have penetrated into the fruit juice market aggressively by commanding considerable market share. We have also forayed into the aerated fruit drink segment with the launch of “Fresh Fizzy.” We are also aggressively marketing our products in institutional category. Presently our products viz. biscuits and fruit juices are supplied to Airlines, Hotels, Railways, Canteens Stores Department (CSD) and organized retail outlets.

Ltd.” at Haridwar, Uttarakhand, where various fiscal benefits are available. Our strategy of strengthening the brands especially the umbrella brand “Priyagold” has resulted in creating immense brand recall value.

According to international journal of food and nutrition science, Biscuit was produced from blends of wheat flour and Bambara groundnut flour at different ratios of 90:10; 70:30, 60:40 and 50:50 (wheat flour; Bambara groundnut flour) respectively and vice versa. From the results of the proximate composition, it was observed that the moisture contents of both wheat flour and Bambara groundnut flour are closely related with a value of 12.0% and 12.30% respectively. Also the other components of ash, fat, crude fibre and protein were in the ranges of 0.70% and 3.68%; 1.53% and 0.18%, 0.70% and 6.18% and 13.24% and 20.13% for wheat and Bambara g/nut respectively. According to journal of consumer research, when people have a well-defined hunger goal to satisfy and put forth effort to reach the goal, they consume more from a small fork rather than from a large fork. The bite size becomes the medium that helps them satisfy their goal and also influences the quantity consumed. It also affects consumer preference for biscuits. When consumer sees that there is any scheme and offer on any product that they tried to purchase that product. Consumer always looks for profit which they get from schemes and offers.

HYPOTHESES TESTING RESULTS
H1: There is significant difference in satisfaction level of retailers regarding retailers’ sales promotional schemes on the basis of scheme preference (Parle, Anmol, Priyagold, Sunfeast and Britannia) To test that there is significant difference in satisfaction level of retailers regarding retailers’ sales promotional schemes of different biscuit brands e.g. Parle, Anmol, Sunfeast, Priyagold and Britannia on the basis of schemes preference. We used one-way ANOVA test because here we are testing one dependent variable and exactly one independent variable. There is test table which shows the result:

FINDINGS OF THE STUDY

75

FINDINGS OF THE STUDY
Based on the summary of the analysis and interpretation of data as per study, the following are the findings to improve the sales and Schemes for consumers, retailers and wholesalers: 1. It was observed that most popular consumer schemes are Extra weight and price off which is most preferred by the customers. Most of the consumer schemes are running by Parle Company and minimum by Sunfeast. 2. It was observed that most popular retailer schemes are Price off and Discount schemes because it gives monetary benefits to the retailers in place of gift items. Most of the Retailer schemes are running by Priyagold and minimum by the Sunfeast. 3. It was observed that most popular wholesalers’ schemes are Discount schemes, Target Schemes and Free gifts scheme in Bareilly city. Most of the biscuit brands are offering these types of schemes for the wholesalers to attract them to purchase. Most of the wholesaler schemes are running by Sunfeast and minimum by Britannia. 4. It is observed that Retailers and wholesalers want to increase the time period of any scheme. According to their responses; a scheme should be for minimum 3 months or more than 3 months because it is easy to provide schemes to all retailers and wholesalers within this period. 5. It is also observed that Salesman or distributors are easier way to transfer information regarding schemes and company staff is also another medium to pass information. 6. If we talk about the satisfaction level of retailers regarding retailer schemes then we will find that sunfeast is one of the brand in which most of the retailers are dissatisfied while retailers are satisfied with the schemes of the Parle, neither satisfied nor dissatisfied with the schemes of Britannia and satisfied with schemes of Anmol and Priyagold. 7. If we talk about Satisfaction level of wholesalers regarding wholesalers’ scheme then we found that there is no highly satisfaction and dissatisfaction regarding wholesaler schemes. Most of the wholesalers are satisfied with wholesale schemes of Parle, neither satisfied nor dissatisfied with Sunfeast and Britannia and Satisfied with Priyagold and Anmol wholesale schemes. 8. Sale of Sunfeast is lower than other brands because Sunfeast is only trying to selling their products without consumer and retailer schemes while on the other hand Parle and Priyagold is selling with all the schemes. So here we can say that all schemes have equal part in promotion of products.

RECOMMENDATIONS

RECOMMENDATIONS
1. It is suggested to Anmol that it should focus on another scheme which is price off scheme like Parle and Britannia. 2. It is observed that Britannia is giving 60 gm @ Rs 6 and Rs 1 off. So here Anmol is also giving 60 Gm @ Rs 5 after 20% extra. So it is suggested to Anmol that it should also make a scheme like Britannia because Rs 1 off is more attractive than 20% extra and it can easily capture customers’ attention. 3. It is also observed that it is not easy to distribute products among all distributors and wholesalers within a short period of time so Company should make schemes for long period of 2 months to 3 months and more. 4. It is also suggested to company to make target schemes for the wholesalers because if there will be target scheme than wholesaler will get profit by selling more cases. Every wholesaler wants to get more profit and if there is more profit then he will push your brand first in place of others. 5. It is also suggested to company that it should also offer gift on festivals because it may create a relationship between company and wholesaler and will prefer to push your brand and avoid switching brand. 6. It is also suggested that company should give advertisement in newspaper regarding new consumers’ schemes because wholesaler could get information from company staff and distributors; retailers could get information from wholesaler but consumer could not get information from any company staff and distributor. So they can get information from newspaper. 7. Company should increase its distribution network in Bareilly city and company should make contracts with retail stores to increase its distribution network to make easily available their product to the consumers. 8. Some of complaints I got from the wholesaler in Bareilly that no actual gift distributed and not any company person visit to take responses from wholesalers. So it is suggested to company that it should appoint ZSM, TSI, SO and RSM to improve customer relationship with wholesalers in Bareilly City.

CONCLUSIONS

CONCLUSIONS
After having analyzed and interpreted the findings, it is concluded that Consumer, retailers and wholesalers’ schemes of any biscuit brands play a significant role to attract the customers and make wholesalers and retailers purchase by offering schemes to them. From the above findings and recommendations we can see that time period of any scheme should be 3 months and more than 3 months. Most preferred consumer schemes are price off and extra weight scheme, most preferred retailer’s schemes are discount and price off schemes and most preferred wholesalers’ schemes are discount, target schemes, price off and free gifts schemes. So here company should work on these schemes to get more attention of customers. Company should make a regular scheme for wholesalers and retailers. Currently Anmol is not offering any consumer scheme in new packs while other brands are offering new schemes, so company should try to continue the schemes to compete with other brands. Company should make other new attractive schemes for consumers, retailers and wholesalers. The dimensions factor like Consumer schemes, wholesaler schemes, retailer schemes, promotion and offers which are the part of promotional schemes of any company. By this schemes consumers get influenced to purchase the product, these are all the identified factor of promotional offers of any biscuit brand in the study. With reference to the objectives of study, comparative study of consumer and trade sales promotional schemes offered by biscuit brands with special reference to Anmol biscuits in Bareilly city. The study shows that almost majority of the respondents are satisfied with respect to schemes offered by Anmol. But there some of the suggestion, which it should apply to gain more customer satisfaction like, It should provide proper knowledge for sales person, because they are the person who push brand to the consumers and they give proper response for query to enhance consumer knowledge about schemes. It should provide information regarding special schemes to Wholesalers and retailers personally by phone or mail, who purchase regularly. At last we can say that Anmol is offering only extra weight scheme and no scheme in new packs, so it is suggested to continue these schemes and it should make another scheme of Rs. Off on same weight like Britannia and Parle.
