Findings And Observations


Soft drinks business behavior is not governed by brand, so the availability of the right brand, at the right place, at the right time is the key for winning consumer in soft drink business. Another critical issue was the presence of duplicate products of PEPSICO in the market. The position of PEPSICO in the corporate was not up to the mark and Coca-Cola had a better scene in this context. The present distribution system of PEPSICO is the best in the entire FMCG industry in Kanpur & related areas. The enhancement in the distribution network would definitely increase the market share of PEPSICO.

Findings And Observations


The retailers played critical role in the increment in the sales volume of the product and had to be kept satisfied in order to increase the market share by offering better schemes, discounts, display materials etc. The existence of sub-dealers and super stockiest are also the major area of problem, as they do not give the schemes and

other display materials and incentives information to the


retailers, which is one of the reasons for the dissatisfaction among retailers.

Recommendations
Uniformity in schemes and discounts, offered to the retailers. Activities of sub-dealers and super-stockists should be controlled and checked in order to ensure fair prices and distribution of schemes. Incentives to small retailers to avoid discontent among smallholdings and outlets.

Every possible step should be taken for the satisfaction of the


retailers.

Recommendations
Soft drink is still considered a treat virtually a luxury, so company

should cut down its price especially of cans.


Supply of posters, glow- sign boards, tin-boards, banners and sun pack sheets etc. should be made at regular interval. Claim should be provided to the deserving retailers. Wall painting should be made regularly in the area, as it is a good medium of advertisement. Retailers need display materials to enhance the marketing of the products.
