1.PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT:-
As the firm is concentrating more on manufacturing process,
production is the most inevitable function of the firm.Production
process involves conversion of raw materials into finished
products.Anchuthara foods mainly focus on production of vegetable
as well as non-vegetable pickles.Many steps are involved in this
process.Before carrying out the production process,all the required
inputs are gone through necessary tests by the approved technologist
of the company.As per the objective of the firm,it tries to reduce
wastage of resources by its maximum utilisation in a cost effective
manner.Whileprocessing,it keeps in mind the end results;quality and
customer satisfaction.

Production process can be well explained with the
help of an example.Lets see the process involved in the manufacture
of prawn pickle with the help of a flow chart:-









2. SALES DEPARTMENT:-
In this firm domestic sales are done with branded
companies,ie; food products which are manufactured within the firm
are been outsourced by various leading brands.But goods are exported
in company brand named LOVELY.there are separate sections in the
company to deal with domestic and foreign trade.All the sales and
transactions are mainted properly by sales head.

3. FINANCE&MARKETING DEPARTMENT:-
The financial systems have been prepared under the
historical cost convention in accordance with the generally accepted
accounting principles and provisions under The Partnership
Act,1932.The firm follows a mercantile system of accounting.
Anchuthara food products is a partnership firm owned by two private
individuals .So the company has not issued its shares to
public.So,shares are handled by the partners itself.
As the firm is a manufacturing & exporting
concern,marketing strategies in a wide scale are not
adopted.Therefore marketing activities are controlled by the
Managing Partner himself.He acts as the Marketing Manager.

4. QUALITY ASSURANCE DEPARTMENT:-
Being a manufacturing concern,the firm has to give more importance
to quality of products ,specially when it is regarding food items.The
partner of the firm Lissy James plays the role of Quality
Controller(QC).It is the duty of the partner to ensure the quality of the
product by interacting with the quality and production departments.In



charge of all the monitoring and verification activities.If any problem
arises,the QC has to discuss with the Mg.Partner.

5.HRM (Human Resource Management):-
The Human Resource Department is handled by the co-
partner of the firm. New workers are appointed with reference from
the existing workers. Employees are appointed by the Mg.Partner and
the other partner. Salary is fixed according to the seniority and
positions of the employees. Wages are paid according to the minimum
wages act to the workers. Company also provides additional bonus
and long term incentives. The company is also providing medical care
facilities, financial counselling, vacation traveling etc.
Anchuthara Foods is maintaining good relations with the employees
that lead to achieve the organizational goal efficiently. But grievances
are natural to rise in an organization where large number of workers
are employed. So grievances are handled in the company by open
survey methods and open door policy. If any grievances occur in the
company, the management will take immediate action by giving
proper guidelines and training to the employees.




CONCLUSION
Through the 30 days industrial attachment programme, I came to
understand the functioning of an organisation, their organisation
structure, the way they deal with their clients, their efficient
management, etc. As a student of management it is not only necessary
to study the theory, but also familiarise ourselves with its practical
aspects, which I was able to achieve through this industrial attachment
programme.
