INTRODUCTION Comparative research, simply put, is the act of comparing two or more things with a view to discovering something about one or all of the things being compared. This technique often utilizes multiple disciplines in one study. When it comes to method, the majority agreement is that there is no methodology peculiar to Comparative research. The multidisciplinary approach is good for the flexibility it offers, yet Comparative programs do have a case to answer against the call that their research lacks a seamless whole. There are certainly methods far more common than others in comparative studies, however. Quantities analysis is much more frequently pursued than qualitative, and this is seen in the majority of comparative studies which use quantitative data. The general method of comparing things is the same for comparative research as it is in our everyday practice of comparison. Like cases are treated alike, and different cases are treated differently; the extent of difference determines how differently cased are to be treated. The point here is that if one is able to sufficiently distinguish two cases, comparative research conclusions will not be very helpful. Secondary analysis of quantative data is relatively widespread in comparative research, undoubtedly in part because of the cost of obtaining primary data for such large things as a countrys policy environment. This study is generally aggregate data analysis. Comparing large quantities of data is prevalent. A typical method of comparing welfare states is to take balance their levels of spending on social welfare. In line with how a lot of theorizing has gone in the last century, comparative research does not tend to investigate grand theories, such as Marxism. It instead occupies itself with middle-range theories theories that do not
6

purport to describe our social system in its entirety, but a subset of it. A good example of this is the common research program that looks for differences between two or more social systems, then looks at these differences in relation to some other variable coexisting in those societies to see if it is related. The classic case of this is Esping-Andersons research on social welfare systems. He noticed there was a difference in types of social welfare systems, and compared them based on their level of decommodification of social welfare goods. He found that he was able to class Welfare states into four types, based on their level of decommodification. She further theorized from this that decommodification was based on a combination of class coalitions and mobilization, and regime legacy. Here Esping-Anderson is using comparative research: he takes many western countries and compares their level of decommodification, then develops a theory of the divergence based on his findings. Comparative research is a research methodology in the social sciences that aims to make comparisons across different countries or cultures. A major problem in comparative research is that the data sets in different countries may not use the same categories, or define categories differently. Comparative research can take many forms. Two factors are space and time. Spatially, cross-national comparisons are by far the most common, although comparisons within countries, contrasting different areas, cultures or governments also subsist and are very constructive, especially in a country like New Zealand, where policy often changes depending on which race it pertains to. Recurrent interregional studies include comparing similar or different countries or sets of countries, comparing ones own country to others or to the whole world. The historical comparative model involves comparing different time-frames. The two main choices within this model are comparing two stages in time (either snapshots or time-series), or just comparing the same thing over time, to see if a
7

policys effects differ over a stretch of time. When it comes to subject matter of comparative enquiries, many contend there is none unique to it. This may indeed be true, but a brief perusal of comparative endeavors reveals there are some topics more recurrent than others. Determining whether socioeconomic or political factors are more important in explaining government action is a familiar theme. In general, however, the only thing that is certain in comparative research issues is the existence of differences to be analyzed. ICE CREAM The origins of ice cream can be traced back to at least the 4th century B.C. Early references include the Roman emperor Nero (A.D. 37-68) who ordered ice to be brought from the mountains and combined with fruit toppings, and King Tang (A.D. 618-97) of Shang, China who had a method of creating ice and milk concoctions. Ice cream was likely brought from China back to Europe. Over time, recipes for ices, sherbets, and milk ices evolved and served in the fashionable Italian and French royal courts. After the dessert was imported to the United States, it was served by several famous Americans. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson served it to their guests. In 1700, Governor Bladen of Maryland was recorded as having served it to his guests. In 1774, a London caterer named Philip Lenzi announced in a New York newspaper that he would be offering for sale various confections, including ice cream. Dolly Madison served it in 1812.

First Ice Cream Parlor In America - Origins Of English Name The first ice cream parlor in America opened in New York City in 1776. American colonists were the first to use the term "ice cream". The name came from the phrase "iced cream" that was similar to "iced tea". The name was later abbreviated to "ice cream" the name we know today. Methods and Technology Whoever invented the method of using ice mixed with salt to lower and control the temperature of ice cream ingredients during its making provided a major breakthrough in ice cream technology. Also important was the invention of the wooden bucket freezer with rotary paddles improved ice cream's manufacture. Augustus Jackson, a confectioner from Philadelphia, created new recipes for making ice cream in 1832. Nancy Johnson and William Young - Hand-Cranked Freezers

In 1846, Nancy Johnson patented a hand-cranked freezer that established the basic method of making ice cream still used today. William Young patented the similar "Johnson Patent Ice-Cream Freezer" in 1848. Jacob Fussell - Commercial Production

In 1851, Jacob Fussell in Baltimore established the first large-scale commercial ice cream plant. Alfred Cralle patented an ice cream mold and scooper used to serve on February 2 1897. Mechanical Refrigeration The treat became both distributable and profitable with the introduction of mechanical refrigeration. The ice cream shop or soda fountain has since become an icon of American culture. Continuous Process Freezer Around 1926, the first commercially successful continuous process freezer for ice cream was invented by Clarence Vogt. ICE CREAM INDUSTRY IN INDIA Ice cream industry occupies important place in India. It is one of the consumer goods industries its products is important popular diet. India is an agriculture-based country because of the large number of cattle and large milk production most of the dairy and ice-cream industries has developed and India is well ranked in the world. Ice cream industry has brought magnificent change in the rural economy. It provides employment to the marginal farmers. It has an important role in employment generation and reducing the migration of villagers towards the town and cities for live hood.

Today the competition in ice-cream of players like amul, Kwality walls , Vadilal etc. as ice cream has been a regular edible item the consumption of ice cream is more. HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF THE COMPANY Small Beginning, Big Vision, Great Ambitions. Havmor Ice Cream began its branded life in 1944 in Karachi, in undivided India. By 1947, it was a popular local brand there. But in 1947, in the wake of the partition, its founder Satish Chona had to join the exodus into India, with virtually no moveable assets. Searching for a new turf, he tried out Dehra Dun and Indore, and finally, settled down in Ahmedabad. No, it was not a case of Brand Relocation, or anything else as fanciful. He had to start the venture from scratch again. In fact, he had to begin from a hand-cart at the Ahmedabad Railway Station, churning out the Ice Cream manually. He called this fledgling brand 'Havmor' - a neologism for 'Have More' - which meant the customer got more value for money, and more taste to relish from his Ice Creams. Perhaps he didn't know it then, but he had laid the foundation for one of Western India's most enduring market legends. And good quality, like good character, wins over the situation sooner or later. Today, Havmor Ice Cream is a delicious facet of Western India's daily life and part of its market lore. It reaches hundreds of thousands of consumers through 50 main outlets and 12000 plus dealers. That's a very very long way from a hand-cart. Good Old Values, New Generation Leadership Mr.Pradeep Chona, son of Late Shri Satish Chona, today heads the Havmor conglomerate. He has continued his father's quality obsession and streak of innovation. To his father's motto - 'Achchai, Sachchai, Safai'. He added a suffix - Navu Su Che?
11

Now that is quite simple, but a powerful reason for taste innovation. In fact, that is not even a corporate axiom. It is the question regular Havmor customers ask at frequent intervals. Because they expect Havmor to keep pleasing their palates in new way, always. Mr.Pradeep Chona set off a series of Changes at Havmor - in technology, in quality & hygiene standards, in management, in HRD and in the overall corporate environment. This re-engineering was complemented by capacity expansions and a flurry of promotional activities, to maintain the company's market presence intact in competitive times... Sometime back, Ankit Chona, Mr.Pradeep Chona's son also joined the business after completing his graduation from the United States. He has been a driving force in expanding the Restaurant division as well as popularizing the Company owned Ice Cream & Fast Food par lours known as HAV FUNN. He has brought a lot of innovation and standardization in the business.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
According to Green and Tall A research design is the specification of the methods and procedures for acquiring the information needed. It is the overall operational pattern or framework of the project that stipulates which information is to be collected, from where it is to be collected and by what procedures This research process based on primary data analysis and secondary data analysis will be clearly defined to meet the objectives of the study. I chose the primary sources to get the data. A questionnaire was designed in accordance with our mentor in Ketchup. I chose a sample of about 30 corporate customers I collected some data from the secondary sources like published Company documents, internet etc. Research Design A research design is the arrangement of conditions for collections and analysis of data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedures. It is a descriptive cross sectional design .It is the conceptual structure with in which research is conducted; it constitutes the blueprint for the collection, measurement and analysis of data. It is needed because it facilitates the smooth sailing of the various research operations, thereby making research as efficient as possible yielding maximal information with minimal expenditure of effort, time and money.

14

In the preliminary stage, my research stage constituted of exploratory study by which it is clear that the existence of the problem is obvious .So, I can directly head for the conclusive research. Sampling Plan Sampling plan is a distinct phase of research process. In this stage I have to determine who is to be sampled, how large should be the needed sample and how sampling unit is to be selected. Population In my research, I have defined my population as a complete set of customers of Sagar City. Sample Survey As compared to census study, a sample study has been conducted by us because of: Wide range of population, it was impossible to cover the whole population Time and money constraints. Sample Unit In this survey I took the list of customers from the dealers of Ketchup Sampling Technique Sampling technique implies the method of choosing the sample items, the two methods of selecting sample are: Probability method. Non-probability method. Probability method is those in which every item of the universe has an equal chance of the inclusion in the sample. Non-probability methods are those that do not provide every item in the universe with known cause of being included in the sample. The selection process is partially subjective. For my study, I employed the Non-probability sampling technique, in which I got the data of the customers from the dealer of Ketchup. Instrument of collection of data I have used one set of questionnaire to collect data from the customers. This questionnaire is structured and highly ordered. This includes both close ended and
15

open ended questions. The close ended questions included both dichotomous and multiple choice questions.

CONSUMER BEHAVIOUR All marketing starts with the consumer. So consumer is a very important person to a marketer. Consumer decides what to purchase, for whom to purchase, why to purchase, from where to purchase, and how much to purchase. In order to become a successful marketer, he must know the liking or disliking of the customers. He must also know the time and the quantity of goods and services, a consumer may purchase, so that he may store the goods or provide the services according to the likings of the consumers. Gone are the days when the concept of market was let the buyers beware or when the market was mainly the sellers market. Now the whole concept of consumers sovereignty prevails. The manufacturers produce and the sellers sell whatever the consumer likes. In this sense, consumer is the supreme in the market. As consumers, we play a very vital role in the health of the economy local, national or international. The decision we make concerning our consumption behavior affect the demand for the basic raw materials, for the transportation, for the banking, for the production; they effect the employment of workers and deployment of resources and success of some industries and failures of others. Thus marketer must understand this. Preference a concept in the social sciences, particularly economics. It assumes a real or imagined "choice" between alternatives and the possibility of rank ordering of these alternatives, based on happiness, satisfaction, gratification, enjoyment, utility they provide. More generally, it can be seen as a source of motivation. In cognitive sciences, individual preferences enable choice of objectives/goals.

17

The study of the consumer preference not only focuses on how and why consumers make buying decision, but also focuses on how and why consumers make choice of the goods they buy and their evaluation of these goods after use. So for success of any company or product promotion it is very necessary to depart its concentration towards consumer preference.

MARKETING STRATEGIES

Wholesalers and Jobbers A wholesaler, or jobber, is a firm that typically buys goods from manufacturers and resells them to retailers. A wholesaler stocks goods from many different manufacturers in one or more warehouses and ships those goods as one combined order under one invoice. In highly competitive industries, such as those selling consumer products through retailers, several wholesalers might stock identical merchandise, putting much pressure on profit margins. As a result, wholesalers are unlikely to offer ancillary services to you, such as advertising or sales solicitation and service unless you pay for these services in addition to the basic wholesaling charges. So, selling your product to a wholesaler doesn't necessarily mean your merchandise will automatically end up on a store shelf. You and your sales force and/or independent representatives will have to take on the responsibility of creating order demand. Wholesale, however, does have advantages. Retailers hesitate to buy direct from new, small vendors and just feel safer purchasing from established wholesalers. Even if you offer a very deep discount, retailers won't be anxious to buy from you direct. They won't see any value in processing the paperwork associated with establishing and doing business with a small account.

29

Distributors Distributors usually serve a multipurpose role. They will perform in a manner similar to that of an independent representative in that they will solicit orders from the retailer for your products. They also act as wholesalers in that they stock your merchandise, too. Distributors may provide other services as well, such as catalogue creation, trade advertising, and trade-show representation. Usually distributors represent manufacturers on an exclusive basis only within their territory. In many industries a distributor will also sell to wholesalers in addition to retailers. In this case, the distributor is called a master distributor. Because a distributor acts as your salesperson and often sells to both wholesalers and retailers, it will require a deeper discount rate when purchasing your merchandise than would be the rule with a wholesaler. Most manufacturers don't use distributors. They prefer to sell direct to wholesalers, retailers, consumers, or some combination of all three. However, a good distributor can be an excellent way for a small firm to instantly establish credibility and a presence within either their industry's domestic or foreign marketplaces. Importers The term importer means different things to different people. Often it is used to describe a firm that serves as an exclusive distributor to an overseas territory and provides sales solicitation, warehousing, and invoicing services.

30

Sometimes it refers to a firm that arranges to buy merchandise from a foreign manufacturer and resells the merchandise to one or more distributors who then handle the domestic sales functions. Typically, the importer will arrange to have the merchandise cleared through customs, and may also arrange for shipment from the country of origin.

ABOUT COMPETITOR Marketing research is the collection and interpretation of data that help the marketing management to get the products more efficiently in to the hands of the consumers. AMERICAN MARKETING ASSOCIATION DEFINES Marketing research as systematic collection, recording, analysis, interpretation and reporting of information about existing or potential markets marketing strategies and tactics etc.Marketing research and market research should not be confused.
