CHAPTER-1
FMCG SECTOR
1.1 INTRODUCTION
FMCG industry, alternatively called as CPG (Consumer packaged goods) industry primarily deals with the production, distribution and marketing of consumer packaged goods. The Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) is those consumables which are normally consumed by the consumers at a regular interval. Some of the prime activities of FMCG industry are selling, marketing, financing, purchasing, etc. The industry also engaged in operations, supply chain, production and general management.
The Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry in India is one of the largest sectors in the country and over the years has been growing at a very steady pace. The sector consists of consumer non-durable products which broadly consists, personal care, household care and food & beverages. The Indian FMCG industry is largely classified as organized and unorganized. This sector is also buoyed by intense competition. Besides competition, this industry is also marked by a robust distribution network coupled with increasing influx of MNCs across the entire value chain. This sector continues to remain highly fragmented.

Industry Classification:

The FMCG industry is volume driven and is characterized by low margins. The products are branded and backed by marketing, heavy advertising, slick packagingand strong distribution networks. The FMCG segment can be classified under the premium segment and popular segment. The premium segment caters mostly to thehigher/upper middle class which is not as price sensitive apart from being brandconscious. The price sensitive popular or mass segment consists of consumers belonging mainly to the semi-urban or rural areas who are not particularly brandconscious. Products sold in the popular segment have considerably lower pricesthan their premium counterparts.

What are Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG)?

Products which have a quick turnover, and relatively low cost are known as FastMoving Consumer Goods (FMCG). FMCG products are those that get replacedwithin a year. Examples of FMCG generally include a wide range of frequently purchased consumer products such as toiletries, soap, cosmetics, tooth cleaning products, shaving products and detergents, as well as other non-durables such asglassware, bulbs, batteries, paper products, and plastic goods. FMCG may alsoinclude pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, packaged food products, softdrinks, tissue paper, and chocolate bars.A subset of FMCGs is Fast Moving Consumer Electronics which includeinnovative electronic products such as mobile phones, MP3 players, digitalcameras, GPS Systems and Laptops. These are replaced more frequently than other electronic products.White goods in FMCG refer to household electronic items such as Refrigerators,T.Vs, Music Systems, etc. In 2005, the Rs.48000-crore FMCG segment was one of the fast growingindustries in India. According to one study, the industry grew 5.3% in value between 2004 and 2005.The Indian FMCG sector is the fourth largest in the economy and has a market sizeof US$13.1 billion. Well-established distribution networks, as well as intensecompetition between the organized and unorganized segments are thecharacteristics of this sector. FMCG in India has a strong and competitive MNC presence across the entire value chain. It has been predicted that the FMCG market will reach to US$ 33.4 billion in 2015from US $ billion 11.6 in 2003. The middle class and the rural segments of theIndian population are the most promising market for FMCG, and give brandmakers the opportunity to convert them to branded products. Most of the productcategories have potential for growth is huge.The Indian Economy is surging ahead by leaps and bounds, keeping pace withrapid urbanization, increased literacy levels, and rising per capita income.The big firms are growing bigger and small-time companies are catching up aswell.

FMCG Industry Economy: FMCG industry provides a wide range of consumables and accordingly the amount of money circulated against FMCG products is also very high. The competition among FMCG manufacturers is also growing and as a result of this, investment in FMCG industry is also increasing, specifically in India, where FMCG industry is regarded as the fourth largest sector with total market size of US$20.1 billion. FMCG Sector in India is estimated to grow 60% by 2011. FMCG industry is regarded as the largest sector in New Zealand which accounts for 5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Common FMCG products:
Some common FMCG product categories include food and dairy products, glassware, paper products, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, packaged food products, plastic goods, printing and stationery, household products, photography, drinks etc. and some of the examples of FMCG products are coffee, tea, dry cells, greeting cards, gifts, detergents, tobacco and cigarettes, watches, soaps etc.

Market potentiality of FMCG industry:
Some of the merits of FMCG industry, which made this industry as a potential one, are low operational cost, strong distribution networks, presence of renowned FMCG companies. Population growth is another factor which is responsible behind the success of this industry.

History
India has always been a country with a big chunk of world population, be it the 1950’s or the twenty first century. In that sense, the FMCG market potential has always been very big. However, from the 1950’s to the 80’s investments in the FMCG industry were very limited due to low purchasing power and the government’s favoring of the small-scale sector. Hindustan Lever Limited (HLL) was probably the only MNC Company that stuck around and had its manufacturing base in India.
At the time, the focus of the organized players like HLL was largely urbane. There too, the consumers had limited choices. However, Nirma’s entry changed the whole Indian FMCG scene. The company focused on the ‘value for money’ plank and made FMCG products like detergents very affordable even to the lower strata of the society. Nirma became a great success story and laid the roadmap for others to follow.

Private consumption expenditure trends CAGR
(%) | Food, beverages, tobacco | Personal care | FY81 | 11.0% | 13.4% | FY91 | 11.7% | 11.9% | FY01 | 11.9% | 14.8% |
*CAGR over a decade
MNC’s like HLL, which were sitting pretty till then, woke up to new market realities and noticed the latent rural potential of India. The government’s relaxation of norms also encouraged these companies to go out for economies of scale in order to make FMCG products more affordable. Consequently, today soaps and detergents have almost 90% penetration in India.
Post liberalization not only saw higher number of domestic choices, but also imported products. The lowering of the trade barriers encouraged MNC’s to come and invest in India to cater to 1bn Indians’ needs. Rising standards of living urban areas coupled with the purchasing power of rural India saw companies introduce everything from a low-end detergent to a high-end sanitary napkin. Their strategy has become two-pronged in the last decade. One, invest in expanding the distribution reach far and wide across India to enable market expansion of FMCG products. Secondly, upgrade existing consumers to value added premium products and increase usage of existing product ranges.
So you could see all companies be it HLL, Godrej Consumer, Marico, Henkel, Reckitt Benckiser and Colgate, trying to outdo each other in getting to the rural consumer first. Each of them has seen a significant expansion in the retail reach in mid-sized towns and villages. Some who could not do it on their own, have piggy backed on other FMCG major’s distribution network (P&G-Marico). Consequently, companies that have taken to rural India like chalk to cheese have seen their sales and profits expanding. For example, currently 50% of all HLL sales come from rural India, and consequently, it is one the biggest beneficiaries of this (see table).
CAGR growth in last 10 years… | Sales | Net profit | Cadbury | 16.6% | 53.0% | Colgate | 9.9% | 4.2% | HLL | 19.1% | 33.5% | Marico | 12.3% | 25.7% | Nestle | 16.4% | 25.3% | P&G Hygiene | 9.0% | 19.9% | Reckitt & Benckiser | 13.3% | 2.7% |
There are others, like Nestle, which have till date catered mostly to urban India but have still seen good growth in the last decade. The company’s focus in the last decade has largely been on value added products for the upper strata of society. However, in the last couple of years, even these companies have looked to reach consumers at the slightly lower end.
One of the biggest changes to hit the FMCG industry was the ‘sachet’ bug. In the last 3 years, detergent companies, shampoo companies, hair oil companies, biscuit companies, chocolate companies and a host of others, have introduced products in smaller package sizes, at lower price points. This is the single big innovation to reach new users and expand market share for value added products in urban India, and for general FMCG products like detergents, soaps and oral care in rural India.
Another interesting phenomenon to have hit the FMCG industry is the mushrooming of regional companies, which are posing a threat to bigger FMCG companies like HLL. For example, the rise of Jyothi Laboratories, which has given sleepless nights to Reckitt Benckiser, the ‘Ghari’ detergent, that has slowly but surely built itself to take on Nirma and HLL in detergents, and finally, the rise of ‘Anchor’ in oral care, which has become synonymous with ‘cat’, which walks away with spoils when two monkeys fight (HLL and Colgate). There are numerous other examples of this.
What does all this mean for the future of FMCG industry in India? Undoubtedly, all this is good for the consumers, who can now choose a variety of products, from a number of companies, at different price points. But for the players who cater to the Indian consumer, the future brings a lot more competition. In this environment, only the innovators will survive. Focus will be the key to profitability (ala HLL). From an investor’s point of view, Indian FMCG companies do offer long-term growth opportunities given the low penetration and usage in most product categories. To choose the best investment opportunities look at the shapers (i.e. innovators) that have been constantly proactive to market needs and have built strong, efficient and intelligent distribution channels. Management vision to growth is the key, as consumers going forward are likely to become even more sophisticated in their demand.
FMCG are products that have a quick shelf turnover, at relatively low cost and don't require alot of thought, time and financial investment to purchase.
Everything from toothpaste to processed foods and health drinks to body care products comes from FMCG or alternatively called as consumer packed goods. Three of the largest and best known examples of Fast Moving Consumer Goods companies are Nestle, Unilever and Procter & Gamble.
The Indian FMCG sector is an important contributor to the country's GDP. It is the fourth largest sector in the economy and is responsible for 5% of the total factory employment in India and captures a market capitalization of around 60,000 crore rupees.
This has been dueto liberalization, urbanization and increase in the disposable incomes and altered lifestyle of the people. The lower-middle income group accounts for over 60% of the sector's sales and rural markets account for 56% of the total domestic FMCG demand.
FMCG sector is expected to grow by over 60% by 2011 and by 2015, the sector is predicted to scale up toUS$33.4 billion. In India, companies like ITC, HLL, Colgate, Cadbury and Nestle have been a dominant force in the FMCG sector well supported by relatively less competition and high entry barriers as import duty was high. SO these companies were able to charge a premium for their products. In this context, the margins were also on the higher side. With the gradual opening up of thee economy over the last decade, FMCG companies have been forced to fight for a market share. In the process, margins have been compromised, more so in the last six years and therefore, FMCG sector witnessed decline in demand. The companies which play an important role in the history of FMCG sector are Godrej and Reckitt – Good knight from Godrej, is worth above Rs217 crore, followed by Reckitt's Mortein at Rs149 crore. In the shampoo category, HLL's Clinic and Sunsilk made it to thetop 100, whereas P&G's, Head and Shoulders and Pantene are not far behind. Clinic is nearly double the size of Sunsilk. Dabur is among the top five FMCG companies in India and is a herbal specialist. Asian Paints is enjoying a formidable presence in the Indian sub-continent, Southeast Asia, Far East, Middle East, South Pacific, Caribbean, Africa and Europe.

Sector
Indian Food sector
India is the world's second largest producer of food next to China, and has the potential of being the biggest with the food and agricultural sector. The total food production in India is likely to double in the next ten years and there is an opportunity for large investments in food and food processing technologies, skills and equipment, especially in areas of Canning, Dairy and Food Processing, Specialty Processing, Packaging, Frozen Food/Refrigeration and Thermo Processing. Fruits & Vegetables, Fisheries, Milk & Milk Products, Meat & Poultry, Packaged/Convenience Foods, Alcoholic Beverages & Soft Drinks and Grains are important sub-sectors of the food processing industry. Health food and health food supplements is another rapidly rising segment of this industry which is gaining vast popularity amongst the health conscious.
India is one of the worlds major food producers but accounts for less than 1.5 per cent of international food trade. This indicates vast scope for both investors and exporters. Food exports in 1998 stood at US $5.8 billion whereas the world total was US $438 billion. The Indian food industries sales turnover is Rs 140,000 crore (1 crore = 10 million) annually as at the start of year 2000. The industry has the highest number of plants approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) outside the USA.

The FMCG Industry & Trends:
Indian Competitiveness and Comparison with the World Market:
The following factors make india a competitive player in FMCG sector: 1. Availability of raw materials:
Because of the diverse agro-climate condition in india there is a large raw material base suitable for food processing industries. Indias is the largest producer of livestock, milk, sugarcane, coconut, spices and cashew and is the second largest producer of rice, wheat and fruit & vegetable. India also produces caustic soda and soda ash, which are required for the production of soaps and detergents. The availability of these raw material gives india the location advantage.

2. Labour cost and comparison:
Low cost labour gives india a competitive advantage. India’s labour cost is amongst the lowest in the world, after china & Indonesia. Low labour costs gives the advantage of low cost of production. Many MNC’s have established their plants in inda to outsources for domestics and export markets.

3. Presence across value chain:
Indian company have their presence across the value of chain of FMCG sector, right from the supply of raw materials to packaged goods in the food-processing sector. This brings india a more cost competitive advantage. For example, Amul supplies milks as well as dairy products like chees and butter, etc.

Godrej in JV with Tyson Foods for poultry processing

MUMBAI: Tyson Foods Inc, the world's largest processor and marketer of meat products and the second largest food company in the US, is joining hands with Godrej Group for a poultry processing and marketing joint venture in India.
The US giant will hold a 51% stake in the joint venture while the rest will be owned by Godrej Agrovet, whose poultry business—including brands like Real Good Chicken and Yummiez—will be spun off into the new entity, industry insiders said.

The deal is likely to be finalised next month, sources said, adding that the venture will launch new processed and value-added poultry products. However, when contacted, a Godrej Group spokesperson declined to comment.
The $26-billion Tyson Foods is one of largest US marketers of value-added meat products to retail grocers, distributors and national fastfood and full-service restaurant chains. The listed company supplies all Yum! Brands chains that use chicken (including KFC and Taco Bell) as well as McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Wal-Mart, Kroger, Costco, IGA, Beef O'Brady's, small restaurant businesses and prisons.

The Rs 1,200-crore Godrej Agrovet is one of the largest producers and marketers of animal feeds and agri-inputs in India. The partnership will help it gain access to the global food processing and product development technology of Tyson Foods. For the Godrej Group, the move will help accelerate growth rates and also help tap the burgeoning market in modern retail and processed food industries.
The US major, in turn, will obtain an easy entry into the fastest growing emerging markets for chicken products. Tyson Foods is also looking at tapping the supply-chain and distribution strength of Godrej in the country.
The two groups already have a working relationship. Godrej Agrovet is the sole franchisee of Cobb-Avian, a subsidiary of Tyson Foods. Also, the chicken used in making Real Good Chicken comes from grandparent generation roosters imported from Cobb-Avian.
Godrej Agrovet had recently sold off a 70% stake in its rural retailing business, Godrej Aadhaar, to Future Group, the largest retail company in India. Based in Springdale, Arkansas, Tyson Foods annually exports the largest percentage of beef out of the US.
It is the second largest food production company in the Fortune 500 list. In 2001, Tyson Foods acquired IBP, the largest beef packer and number two pork processor in the US for $3.2 billion in cash and stock. In 2007, the company came in for a lot of criticism by PETA.

Yesterday Tyson purchased 51 per cent ownership of Godrej Foods, Ltd., based in Mumbai. Godrej Foods is a subsidiary of Godrej Agrovet, Ltd., one of India’s leading agribusinesses. The joint venture between Godrej Agrovet and Tyson will be called Godrej Tyson Foods. Annual sales for the venture are initially expected to be in the range of $50 million and are anticipated to grow as operations are expanded.

The venture includes one chicken processing facility in Mumbai, in western India, and another in Bangalore, in the southern part of the country. The two plants have a combined production capacity of 60,000 birds per day and have approximately 1,000 contract production workers. The Godrej processing operations are supplied by six contracted hatcheries and a network of contracted broiler operations, which produce live birds to the company's specifications.
The well-trained, professional sales organization of Godrej currently sells retail fresh chicken under the “Real Good Chicken” brand name and processed chicken, such as breaded nuggets and patties, along with a line of frozen vegetables, under the “Yummiez” brand. The company, which is also a major supplier to the foodservice market, has an extensive logistics and distribution network designed to effectively serve its customer base in western, southern and northern India.
“Poultry production and consumption is growing in India and we believe the timing is right for us to bring our expertise and resources to this emerging market,” said Rick Greubel, group vice president and international president for Tyson Foods. “India has population of more than 1.1 billion people, and while per capita chicken consumption there is currently less than five pounds a year, its annual growth rate of more than 10% is among the highest in the world.”
Greubel also noted, “With the help of our partners, we plan to expand the production capacity of the existing operations and build additional processing facilities to better reach consumers in the northern and eastern regions of the country.”
Tyson and Godrej plan to immediately initiate efforts to expand the capacity of the poultry plants already in operation. Efforts to build new processing plants in other parts of the country will likely begin within the next several years.
“We’re excited about partnering with Tyson, because of its international reputation for quality and innovation,” said BalramYadav, chief executive officer of Godrej Agrovet Ltd. “We believe this joint venture will boost our continued efforts to modernize the way high quality poultry products are developed, produced and distributed in our country.”

2.2. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
An organizational structure defines how activities such as task allocation, coordination and supervision are directed towards the achievement of organizational aims.[1] It can also be considered as the viewing glass or perspective through which individuals see their organization and its environment.[2]
Organizations are a variant of clustered entities.
An organization can be structured in many different ways, depending on their objectives. The structure of an organization will determine the modes in which it operates and performs.
Organizational structure allows the expressed allocation of responsibilities for different functions and processes to different entities such as the branch, department, workgroupand individual.
Organizational structure affects organizational action in two big ways : * First, it provides the foundation on which standard operating procedures and routines rest. * Second, it determines which individuals get to participate in which decision-making processes, and thus to what extent their views shape the organization’s actions.

Strong growth momentum likely to continue across product categories:

GAVL primarily deals in animal feeds, integrated poultry (live birds division) and agri-inputs, and also has interest in other businesses like oil palm plantation, processes meat and rural retail (Aadhaar) through its various subsidiaries and JVs. During FY09, GAVL transferred its urban retailing business (Natures Basket) to a separate company (Natures Basket Ltd.) and sold its entire (100%) stake in NBL to Godrej Industries Limited in FY10. In FY09, the company also transferred its integrated poultry business, other than live birds division, to Godrej Tyson Foods Limited – GTFL (formerly Godrej Foods Ltd.), a joint venture (JV) between GAVL and Tyson Foods, USA. Subsequently, GAVL divested a 51% stake to Tyson Foods and currently holds the balance 49% in the JV. In FY10, the operating performance of GAVL witnessed a steady improvement supported by robust performance across its key business segments i.e. animal feeds and agri inputs business (together contribute 85- 90% of the total standalone sales). Going forward, we expect GAVL’s revenues to grow at CAGR of 12.7% over FY10-13E on the back of steady improvement in the performance of its key segment.

Club It

...Club IT, Part Two Jomoto Brown BIS/219 April 25, 2011 Tarik Iles Club IT, Part Two The best way to minimize cost and maximize profit is to revolutionize the infrastructure of Club IT. The best way to get this done is to let the information technology department as well as the owners incorporate better planning and new management systems. One of the issues bought to the attention of the author was the selling of advance tickets by having the customer call in or coming to the club to purchase the tickets. Some of the information that was gathered from Ruben was that he wants to have a website setup so that his customers can purchase tickets online. This is a good idea as well as one that can be expanded. The information technology department can begin working immediately on the club’s extranet, which will be a website that a customer or potential customer can visit and check out who is performing on Friday and Saturday night events. This should be handled very seriously because the club owners want their customers to have a safe and secure transaction over their extranet and electronic data interchange. The way this will be set up is the customer will go to the website, create a personal account, and he or she can purchase his or her tickets online and be able to print the tickets at home. In addition, with this service the club will receive the customer’s e-mail address for this can be the customer’s login information, and the club can send the......

...Running Head: Club IT Part I Club IT Part I As the newest intern for Club IT, I have taken a look at the most recent issue’s that both Ruben and Lisa are having as owners of this new club. Being a new club, it is very important that there are strategies in place to stay competitive with the competing night clubs in the area. I very much do think that Ruben and Lisa can be competitive running Club IT. Having the knowledge of the services offered including hours of operation, entertainment venue, along with the pricing charged for these amenities is a giant advantage to build around. Keeping up with this information along will keep you in the loop and operationally effective. This will also make it easier to plan your business hours, nightly specials, and events around the busier nights a competing club may have causing you to have less the crowd, meaning less the profits. With Club IT being new, I think that the new remodeling works very well with the modern club style. The high ceilings and high energy lighting that was mentioned gives a look that as noted will bring a very high level of energy to the club making it a fun place to be at and go to. Keeping a strong innovation to Club IT with be on a consistant watch due to changes made all the time in the night club industry. Conclusion Club IT has all the tools needed to stay innovative and successful. The......

...Market There was a time not so long ago, when holidaying meant a whistle-stop tour that rocketed people from city to city, country to country in a breath-taking display of stamina and endurance. Returning tourists brought back a blur of memories and rolls of pictures shot against popular tourist backdrops. All this is now slowly changing. More people are, today, opting for the relaxed, soak-in-the-local-flavourand-culture holidays.The joy of ducking into little alleys to taste the local cuisine, day trips to places off the beaten track, shopping for ethnic handicrafts and learning the odd steps of a local folk dance now form part of the wish list of holiday makers. As the Indian consumer continues to evolve in the post-liberalisation era, the concept of holidaying has become experiential as well as aspirational. Holidaying, today, is now based on an individual's idea of fun, excitement and the elation brought on by the simple pleasures of discovery. In this developing environment, resorts help create a perfect holiday. Indian tourism, standing on the threshold of a new era, is expected to grow at about 25% annually until 2017 (Source: World Travel and Tourism Council report).The same report projects India to emerge as the world's 3rd fastest growing travel and tourism destination over the next decade while the number of domestic travellers is expected to cross the 300 million mark.
