EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Coke is a households name and is the lips of every one. In present time every person knows the name of coca cola since India is one of biggest market and a sultry summer from March to the end of October and huge population has immensely helped in the sales the sales of coke in India and its making it more economical. Maaza is a Coca-Cola fruit drink brand marketed in India and Bangladesh, the most popular drink being the mango variety, so much that over the years, the Maaza brand has become synonymous with Mango. Initially Coca-Cola had also launched Maaza in orange and pineapple variants, but these variants were subsequently dropped. Coca-Cola has recently re-launched these variants again in the Indian market. Indias one billion people, growing middle class, and low per capita consumption of soft drinks made it a highly contested prize in the global CSD market in the early twenty-first century. Ten percent of the countrys population lived in urban areas or large cities and drank ten bottles of soda per year while the vast remainder lived in rural areas, villages, and small towns where annual per capita consumption was less than four bottles. Coke and Pepsi dominated the market and together had a consolidated market share above 95%. While soft drinks were once considered products only for the affluent, by 2003 91% of sales were made to the lower, middle and upper middle classes. Soft drink sales in India grew 76% between 1998 and 2002, from 5,670 million bottles to over 10,000 million and were expected to grow at least 10% per year through 2012. In spite of this growth, annual per capita consumption was only 6 bottles versus 17 in Pakistan, 73 in Thailand, 173 in the Philippines and 800 in the United States29. With its large population and low consumption, the rural market represented a significant opportunity for penetration and a critical battleground for market dominance. In 2001, Coca-Cola recognized that to compete with traditional refreshments including lemon water, green coconut water, fruit juices, tea, and lassi, competitive pricing was essential. In response, Coke launched a smaller bottle priced at almost 50% of the traditional package.

Coke in India Coca-Cola was the leading soft drink brand in India until 1977 when it left rather than reveal its formula to the government and reduce its equity stake as required under the Foreign Coca-Cola India Exchange Regulation Act (FERA) which governed the operations of foreign companies in India. After a 16-year absence, Coca-Cola returned to India in 1993, cementing its presence with a deal that gave Coca-Cola ownership of the nation's top soft-drink brands and bottling network. Cokes acquisition of local popular Indian brands including Thums Up (the most trusted brand in India21), Limca, Maaza, Citra and Gold Spot provided not only physical manufacturing, bottling, and distribution assets but also strong consumer preference. This combination of local and global brands enabled Coca-Cola to exploit the benefits of global branding and global trends in tastes while also tapping into traditional domestic markets. Leading Indian brands joined the Company's international family of brands, including Coca- Cola, diet Coke, Sprite and Fanta, plus the Schweppes product range. In 2000, the company launched the Kinley water brand and in 2001, Shock energy drink and the powdered concentrate Sunfill hit the market.From 1993 to 2003, Coca-Cola invested more than US$1 billion in India, making it one of the countrys top international investors.22 By 2003, Coca-Cola India had won the prestigious Woodruf Cup from among 22 divisions of the Company based on three broad parameters of volume, profitability, and quality. Coca-Cola India achieved 39% volume growth in 2002 while the industry grew 23% nationally and the Company reached breakeven profitability in the region for the first time.23 Encouraged by its 2002 performance, Coca-Cola India announced plans to double its capacity at an investment of $125 million (Rs. 750 crore) between September 2002 and March 2003.Coca-Cola India produced its beverages with 7,000 local employees at its twenty-seven Wholly-owned bottling operations supplemented by seventeen franchiseeowned bottling operations and a network of twenty-nine contract-packers to
5

manufacture a range of products for the company. The complete manufacturing process had a documented quality control and assurance program including over 400 tests performed throughout the process The complexity of the consumer soft drink market demanded a distribution process to support 700,000 retail outlets serviced by a fleet that includes 10-ton trucks, open-bay three wheelers, and trademarked tricycles and pushcarts that were used to navigate the narrow alleyways of the cities.25 In addition to its own employees, Coke indirectly created employment for another 125,000 Indians through its procurement, supply, and distribution networks. Sanjiv Gupta, President and CEO of Coca-Cola India, joined Coke in 1997 as Vice President, Marketing and was instrumental to the companys success in developing a brand relevant to the Indian consumer and in tapping Indias vast rural market potential. Following his marketing responsibilities, Gupta served as Head of Operations for Company-owned bottling operations and then as Deputy President. Seen as the driving force behind recent successful forays into packaged drinking water, powdered drinks, and ready-to-serve tea and coffee, Gupta and his marketing prowess were critical to the continued growth of the Company

The Worlds Most Powerful Brand


Interbrands Global Brand Scorecard for 2003 ranked Coca-Cola the #1 Brand in the World and estimated its brand value at $70.45 billion .The rankings methodology determined a brands valuation on the basis of how much it was likely to earn in the future, distilling the percentage of revenues that could be credited to the brand, and assessing the brands strength to determine the risk of future earnings forecasts. Considerations included market leadership, stability, and global reach, incorporating its ability to cross both geographical and cultural borders.17From the beginning, Coke understood the importance of branding and the creation of a distinct personality.18 Its catchy, well-liked slogans19 (Its the real thing (1942, 1969),Things go better with Coke (1963), Coke is it (1982), Cant beat the Feeling (1987),and a 1992 return to Cant beat the real thing) 20 linked that personality to the core values of each generation and established Coke as the authentic, relevant, and trusted refreshment of choice across the decades and around the globe.

HISTORY
Coca-Cola was first introduced by John Syth Pemberton, a pharmacist, in the year 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia when he concocted caramel-colored syrup in a three-legged brass kettle in his backyard. He first distributed the product by carrying it in a jug down the street to Jacobs Pharmacy and customers bought the drink for five cents at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was teamed with the new syrup, whether by accident or otherwise, producing a drink that was proclaimed delicious and refreshing, a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca-Cola is enjoyed.

Dr. Pembertons partner and book-keeper, Frank M. Robinson, suggested the name and penned Coca-Cola in the unique flowing script that is famous worldwide even today. He suggested that the two Cs would look well in advertising. The first newspaper ad for Coca-Cola soon appeared in The Atlanta Journal, inviting thirsty citizens to try the new and popular soda fountain drink. Hand-painted oil cloth signs reading Coca-Cola appeared on store awnings, with the suggestions Drink added to inform passersby that the new beverage was for soda fountain refreshment.

By the year 1886, sales of Coca-Cola averaged nine drinks per day. The first year, Dr. Pemberton sold 25 gallons of syrup, shipped in bright red wooden kegs. Red has been a distinctive color associated with the soft drink ever since. For his efforts, Dr. Pemberton grossed $50 and spent $73.96 on advertising. Dr. Pemberton never realized the potential of the beverage he created. He gradually sold portions of his business to various partners and, just prior to his death in 1888, sold his remaining interest in Coca-Cola to Asa G. Candler, an entrepreneur from Atlanta. By the year 1891, Mr. Candler proceeded to buy additional rights and acquire complete ownership and control of the Coca-Cola business. Within four years, his merchandising flair had helped expand consumption of Coca-Cola to every state and territory after which he liquidated his pharmaceutical business and focused his full attention on the soft drink. With his brother, John S. Candler, John Pembertons former partner Frank Robinson and two other associates, Mr. Candler formed a Georgia corporation named the Coca-Cola Company. The trademark Coca-Cola, used in the
8

marketplace since 1886, was registered in the United States Patent Office on January 31, 1893.

The business continued to grow, and in 1894, the first syrup manufacturing plant outside Atlanta was opened in Dallas, Texas. Others were opened in Chicago, Illinois, and Los Angeles, California, the following year. In 1895, three years after The Coca-Cola Companys incorporation, Mr. Candler announced in his annual report to share owners that Coca-Cola is now drunk in every state and territory in the United States.

As demand for Coca-Cola increased, the Company quickly outgrew its facilities. A new building erected in 1898 was the first headquarters building devoted exclusively to the production of syrup and the management of the business. In the year 1919, the Coca-Cola Company was sold to a group of investors for $25 million. Robert W. Woodruff became the President of the Company in the year 1923 and his more than sixty years of leadership took the business to unsurpassed heights of commercial success, making Coca-Cola one of the most recognized and valued brands around the world.

LIMITED (HCCBPL)
ABOUT THE COMPANY Coca-Cola was the leading soft drink brand in India until 1977, when it left rather than reveal its formula to the Government and reduce its equity stake as required under the Foreign Regulation Act (FERA) which governed the operations of foreign companies in India. Coca-Cola re-entered the Indian market on 26th October 1993 after a gap of 16 years, with its launch in Agra. An agreement with the Parle Group gave the Company instant ownership of the top soft drink brands of the nation. With access to 53 of Parles plants and a well set bottling network, an excellent base for rapid introduction of the Companys International brands was formed. The Coca-Cola Company acquired soft drink brands like Thumps Up, Goldspot, Limca, Maaza, which were floated by Parle, as these products had achieved a strong consumer base and formed a strong brand image in Indian market during the re-entry of Coca-Cola in 1993.Thus these products became a part of range of products of the Coca-Cola Company.

In the new liberalized and deregulated environment in 1993, Coca-Cola made its re-entry into India through its 100% owned subsidiary, HCCBPL, the Indian bottling arm of the Coca-Cola Company. However, this was based on numerous commitments and stipulations which the Company agreed to implement in due course. One such major commitment was that, the Hindustan Coca-Cola Holdings would divest 49% of its shareholding in favor of resident shareholders by June 2002.

Coca-Cola is made up of 7000 local employees, 500 managers, over 60 manufacturing locations, 27 Company Owned Bottling Operations (COBO), 17 Franchisee Owned Bottling Operations (FOBO) and a network of 29 Contract Packers that facilitate the manufacture process of a range of products for the company. It also has a supporting distribution network consisting of 700,000 retail outlets and 8000 distributors. Almost all goods and services required to cater to the Indian market are made locally, with help of technology and skills within the Company. The complexity of the Indian market is reflected in the
10

distribution fleet which includes different modes of distribution, from 10-tonne trucks to open-bay three wheelers that can navigate through narrow alleyways of Indian cities and trademarked tricycles and pushcarts.

Think local, act local, is the mantra that Coca-Cola follows, with punch lines like Life ho to aisi for Urban India and Thanda Matlab Coca-Cola for Rural India. This resulted in a 37% growth rate in rural India visa-vie 24% growth seen in urban India. Between 2001 and 2003, the per capita consumption of cold drinks doubled due to the launch of the new packaging of 200 ml returnable glass bottles which were made available at a price of Rs.5 per bottle. This new market accounted for over 80% of Indias new Coca-Cola drinkers. At CocaCola, they have a long standing belief that everyone who touches their business should benefit, thereby inducing them to uphold these values, enabling the Company to achieve success, recognition and loyalty worldwide.

: DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

Direct distribution: In direct distribution, the bottling unit or the bottler partner has direct control over the activities of sales, delivery, and merchandising and local account management at the store level. Indirect distribution: In indirect distribution, an organization which is not part of the Coca-Cola system has control on one or more of the distribution elements (Sales, delivery, merchandising and local account management) Merchandising: Merchandising means communication with the consumer at the point of purchase to convey product benefit, value and Quality. Sales people and delivery personnel both have this responsibility. In certain locations special teams who go into business locations to specifically merchandise our products.

DEPARTMENTS INVOLVED IN THE DISTRIBUTION PROCESS The Distribution process mainly consists of three departments:

Distribution Department: It appoints distributors and establishes a distribution network, processes approved sale orders and prepares invoices, arranges logistics and ship products, co-ordinates with distributors for collections and monitors distribution stocks and their setup. Finance Department: It checks credit limits and approves sales orders in compliance with the credit policy followed by the firm, records collections from distributors, periodically reconciles outstanding balances from distributors, obtains balance confirmation from distributors and follows up outstanding balances.
14

Shipping or Warehousing Department: It dispatches goods as per approved by order, ensures that stocks are dispatched on a FIFO basis, ensures physical control over load out area and updates warehouse stock records in a timely manner.

SWOT ANALYSIS OF COCA COLA

STRENGTHS

DISTRIBUTION NETWORK: The Company has a strong and reliable distribution network. The network is formed on the basis of the time of consumption and the amount of sales yielded by a particular customer in one transaction. It has a distribution network consisting of a number of efficient salesmen, 700,000 retail outlets and 8000 distributors. The distribution fleet includes different modes of distribution, from 10-tonne trucks to open-bay three wheelers that can navigate through narrow alleyways of Indian cities and trademarked tricycles and pushcarts. STRONG BRANDS: The products produced and marketed by the Company have a strong brand image. People all around the world recognize the brands marketed by the Company. Strong brand names like Sprite, Fanta, Limca, Thums Up and Maaza add up to the brand name of the Coca-Cola Company as a whole. The red and white Coca-Cola is one of the very few things that are recognized by people all over the world. Coca-Cola has been named the world's top brand for a fourth consecutive year in a survey by consultancy Interbrand. It was estimated that the Coca-Cola brand was worth $70.45billion. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4706275.stm)

15

LOW COST OF OPERATIONS: The production, marketing and distribution systems are very efficient due to forward planning and maintenance of consistency of operations which minimizes wastage of both time and resources leads to lowering of costs.

WEAKNESSES

LOW EXPORT LEVELS: The brands produced by the company are brands produced world wide thereby making the export levels very low. In India, there exists a major controversy concerning pesticides and other harmful chemicals in bottled products including Coca-Cola. In 2003, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a non-governmental organization in New Delhi, said aerated waters produced by soft drinks manufacturers in India, including multinational giants PepsiCo and CocaCola, contained toxins including lindane, DDT, malathion and chlorpyrifos- pesticides that can contribute to cancer and a breakdown of the immune system. Therefore, people abroad, are apprehensive about Coca-Cola products from India. SMALL SCALE SECTOR RESERVATIONS LIMIT ABILITY TO INVEST AND ACHIEVE ECONOMIES OF SCALE: The Companys operations are carried out on a small scale and due to Government restrictions and red-tapism, the Company finds it very difficult to invest in technological advancements and achieve economies of scale.

OPPORTUNITIES

LARGE DOMESTIC MARKETS: The domestic market for the products of the Company is very high as compared to any other soft drink
16

manufacturer. Coca-Cola India claims a 58 per cent share of the soft drinks market; this includes a 42 per cent share of the cola market. Other products account for 16 per cent market share, chiefly led by Limca. The company appointed 50,000 new outlets in the first two months of this year, as part of its plans to cover one lakh outlets for the coming summer season and this also covered 3,500 new villages. In Bangalore, Coca-Cola amounts for 74% of the beverage market. EXPORT POTENTIAL: The Company can come up with new products which are not manufactured abroad, like Maaza etc and export them to foreign nations. It can come up with strategies to eliminate apprehension from the minds of the people towards the Coke products produced in India so that there will be a considerable amount of exports and it is yet another opportunity to broaden future prospects and cater to the global markets rather than just domestic market. HIGHER INCOME AMONG PEOPLE: Development of India as a whole has lead to an increase in the per capita income thereby causing an increase in disposable income. Unlike olden times, people now have the power of buying goods of their choice without having to worry much about the flow of their income. The beverage industry can take advantage of such a situation and enhance their sales. THREATS

IMPORTS: As India is developing at a fast pace, the per capita income has increased over the years and a majority of the people are educated, the export levels have gone high. People understand trade to a large extent and the demand for foreign goods has increased over the years. If consumers shift onto imported beverages rather than have beverages manufactured within the country, it could pose a threat to the Indian beverage industry as a whole in turn affecting the sales of the Company. TAX AND REGULATORY SECTOR: The tax system in India is accompanied by a variety of regulations at each stage on the consequence
17

from production to consumption. When a license is issued, the production capacity is mentioned on the license and every time the production capacity needs to be increased, the license poses a problem. Renewing or updating a license every now and then is difficult. Therefore, this can limit the growth of the Company and pose problems. SLOWDOWN IN RURAL DEMAND: The rural market may be alluring but it is not without its problems: Low per capita disposable incomes that is half the urban disposable income; large number of daily wage earners, acute dependence on the vagaries of the monsoon; seasonal consumption linked to harvests and festivals and special occasions; poor roads; power problems; and inaccessibility to conventional advertising media. All these problems might lead to a slowdown in the demand for the companys products.

COMPETITORS TO COCA COLA


The competitors to the products of the company mainly lie in the non-alcoholic beverage industry consisting of juices and soft drinks.

The key competitors in the industry are as follows:

PepsiCo: The PepsiCo challenge, to keep up with archrival, the CocaCola Company never ends for the World's # 2, carbonated soft-drink maker. The company's soft drinks include Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Slice. Cola is not the company's only beverage; PepsiCo sells Tropicana orange juice brands, Gatorade sports drink, and Aquafina water. PepsiCo also sells Dole juices and Lipton ready-to-drink tea. PepsiCo and CocaCola hold together, a market share of 95% out of which 60.8% is held by Coca-Cola and the rest belongs to Pepsi. Nestl: Nestle does not give that tough a competition to Coca-Cola as it mainly deals with milk products, Baby foods and Chocolates. But the iced tea that is Nestea which has been introduced into the market by
18

Nestle provides a considerable amount of competition to the products of the Company. Iced tea is one of the closest substitutes to the Colas as it is a thirst quencher and it is healthier when compared to fizz drinks. The flavored milk products also have become substitutes to the products of the company due to growing health awareness among people. Dabur: Dabur in India, is one of the most trusted brands as it has been operating ever since times and people have laid all their trust in the Company and the products of the Company. Apart from food products, Dabur has introduced into the market Real Juice which is packaged fresh fruit juice. These products give a strong competition to Maaza and the latest product Minute Maid Pulpy Orange.

PLACE

The Coca-Cola Company in India is governed from its corporate office located at Gurgaon in Haryana. It governs the working of five zones covering whole India these zones are: - Northern zone, Eastern zone, Western zone, Southern zone and Andhra Pradesh zone. These zones are divided in to various, plants, which govern the area assigned to them. The areas are the various distribution centers called distributors and C&F agents. Then comes the retailers/customer for the company's product, they receive goods from distributors and C&F agents. Finally consumer is there, having the product from the customer's shops or delivered to their home, it is more clearly visible through this chart. The Coca-Cola Company, which gave its reach to the mouth of billions of people all around the world having a wide distribution, network. In India, the pace and speed at which Coca-Cola has widened its business is really amazing. Distribution network is the biggest strength of the company. In India, there are over 5 million retail outlets dispersed all over the country. The retailing industry provides employment to over 18mn people. 1 out of every 25 families in India is engaged in the business of retailing. Ownership and management are predominantly family controlled. However in sharp contrast to developed countries, unit average size of a retail outlet in India is very small.

28

Organized retailing, however, has been a recent phenomenon and is relatively undeveloped. There are no large super market chains/ shopping malls. Consumers are unwilling to pay a premium for convenience shopping as their counterparts in the western countries do. While small chain stores called Apna Bazaars and Sahakan Bhandaars, which offer products at reasonable prices, have been fairly popular, Department Stores and Food Stores are slowly gaining popularity. A large number of corporates have recently ventured into retailing. The retail outlet in India can be broadly categorized as follows: - Grocery stores - General purpose stores - Food stores - Pan bidi shops - Chemist/ drug stores - Cold chains

The relative share of grocers dropped from over 50% in the early 90's to 35% in the late 90's. Chemist outlets on the other hand, have been expanding their product range to include high margin FMCG products from shampoos to ketchup.
