INDIAN NUTRELA MAR2ET O-ER-IEW Ruchi Soya has entered the [email protected]@coo DRT%E category under its /agship brand Nutrela. The new products launched would include Nutrela !nstant Soya and Nutrela Ready $i(es. !t is planning a ,-G maret share in this segment by :-,-- cases amount to :> tonne o oil. #round >-- cases out o the total :>-- cases oil are or mustard oil. Sun/ower oil is the most sold product whereas the demand or mustard oil is comparati'ely less in Idupi and $anipal region .!t sells more in eastern part o !ndia. 8ach case consists o around ,: bo(es. So the total SCI o oil sold is 9-&--whereas the total SCI o soya product sold is around +:- bo(es per month. $ost selling product is , litre pouch in edible oil segment. :-- gm. and ,-&--- retail

outlets #ll re0ning plants located near ports& pro'iding easier access to imported edible oil  ν Histribution through pipes at ports sa'es transport cost and time. $angalore is one such location which has access to port and hence there is a manuacturing acility or 'anaspati& soya product and re0ning o oil here.

Aence the distributor re)uires one day booing by the retail storesJwholesalers which are located urban& semi urban depending on their order siKe. ! the retail outletJwholesalers mae a onetime bill o Rs. >--then the distributor deli'ers to them the ne(t day ater maing the order. #lso these outlets need to be present in urban or semi urban area. For outlets located in rural areas order is deli'ered a wee ater the order is made .! the order siKe is small enough to be deli'ered in a bie &then they deli'er to the outlets located in rural areas in :@9 days.  The stocs despatched is /e(ible as there is no 0(ed time or the )uantity and depends in the retailers. 7il maret is a daily maret and it /uctuates by Rs. , or Rs. : on a daily basis. So the distributor 'isits all major outlets once a wee to collect any order or collect payments. So& the retailer is charged the price or that particular day and hence the rate o oil 'aries on e'ery order whereas the soya chuns rate remains almost 0(ed.  The distributor 'isits retail outlets in rural areas once a month& to inorm him about the latest oil price and also to collect any orders.

Pr!("&t )arg#n an( t"rn!8er1 7n an a'erage& the distributor maes a margin o >G and the Retailer margin is ,- G on oil products. !n soya products retailers maes a margin o ,>G. !n

a month around ,? tonne o sun/ower oil is distributed by him towards retailers and wholesalers. This amounts to around ,?-- cases. $ustard oil is > tonne& i.e.& >-- cases and soya products is : tonnes.

Financial and other Support rom Ruchi Soya !ndustries1  The company sometimes ofers promotional acti'ity to push their products. !  a distributor placed an order or >-- cases& then :> cases will be pro'ided or ree. The distributor can then pass on this incenti'e to his retailers depending upon the order they place with the distributor. #lso the distributor is charged daily rate or the oil products& and sometimes there is a certain percentage o discount ofered when distributor places an order or bul pro0t. 7il products sell more during summer season and there is a minute decrease in the demand or oil products during winter. Aence it is a 'ery seasonal product. #lso& the demand or diferent oil product 'aries across all the states with eastern region ha'ing a much higher demand or mustard oil in eastern

!ndia such as west 4engal& 7rissa than in southern !ndian states. Aence the demand or mustard oil in Idupi district is low.

$aret operation  The maret operation o a distributor enlists all the unctions that he has to perorm as a part o his duties and responsibilities. !n the case o our product the distribution channel is as ollows1 @ First the company eeps the goods in its warehouse rom where the product is taen by the distributor to supply it to the retailers and wholesalers. Nutrela doesn*t has any stocist or super stocist deployed or its distribution. While ha'ing a personal inter'iew with the distributor o nutrela& ollowing aspects o maret operation carried out by him were noted down.

,. 7rder booing or ready stoc  The distributor boos the order gi'en by retailer and supplies the good on a weely basis. !n urban area& order booing by the retailer has to be done one prior to the deli'ery date whereas in rural areas retailers need to boo : or 9 days in ad'ance or an [email protected] deli'ery. !n both regions i the )uantity demanded is less& then the distribution is carried on a two wheeler otherwise a car is deployed. This is done to ensure cost efecti'eness. :. Number o retailers by outlet typeJclassi0cation %urrently the distributor ser'es to only retailers and wholesellers. The total number is around ;>- retailers and wholesellers. They do not supply to the institutions as o now. 9. !ndicati'e sales dispersion across diferent outlet typeJclass Histributors most o the sales comes rom supplying the goods to the retailers. From retailers alone the sales is around +- – ?-G while remaining coming rom the wholesellers. ;. $aret co'erage ser'icing re)uency and process – bacward rom warehouse and orward to retailers  The distributor co'ers the [email protected] area rom Cota to Idupi – $anipal region co'ering around 9- Cms in the state. Histributor supplies once a wee to its customers. The process ollowed by him is that 0rst the company eeps the goods in its warehouse rom where the product is taen by the distributor to supply it to the retailers and wholesalers.

Market (e8e%!)ent $aret de'elopment are the acti'ities carried out by both the retailers and the distributors in order to push the products into the maret. This is also done by
