BIMTECH SEAL Name of Faculty
First of all I would like to express my gratitude to the respected executives of the Foods B.D. team at Hindustan Unilever(HUL),Andheri for allowing me to work with them for a period of 8 weeks. This has been a wonderful learning experience and has enlightened my knowledge about the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Sector in India, possibly one of the most important for the Indian economy.
I am especially thankful to my tutor at Kissan, Mr. Sachin Sharma, under whose tutelage I underwent my training and learnt a lot of first hand application of marketing principles in development of a product. Also, I would like to thank my faculty guide, Prof. Dhruva Chak, for his guidance and cooperation during this internship. I am grateful to them for their help and support without which I would have been unable to learn as much as I did from this internship.
Hindustan Unilever is India’s largest FMCG manufacturer with a turnover of close to 2600 million euros in 2008. Out of this 2600 million, 47% of the contribution comes from the Home Care segment while the next highest contribution is from the Personal Care division. HUL boasts of having the largest product portfolio amongst all of its competitors with brands such as Dove, Pears, Surf, Axe etc. to name a few that are marketed in India. They are considered the “Gurus of Marketing” and most firms look at HUL as a benchmark in the FMCG sector. This study is an effort to develop a Go-To-Market (GTM) model for a new chilled product that the company plans to launch in the near future. The GTM model is vital for the project to proceed to the Launch Stage as the indicative activities in the capability stage of the innovation funnel near completion. Thus this study will look at analyzing and designing the best possible GTM model keeping in mind their current distribution channel and the model being followed by their competitors.
