47 CONCLUSION 49 BIBLIOGRAPHY 50 INTRODUCTION Ice cream is a frozen dessert usually prepared from dairy products, such as crea m, milk, sugar combined with fruit and other flavors. Artificial flavorings are also used in addition to, or instead of natural ingredients. Most popular flavor s of ice cream are Vanilla and Chocolate. Gelato, Frozen Custard, Sorbet are some alternative names for Ice Cream. In the Persian Empire, people had poured concentrate of grape juice over snow, in a bowl, and would consume it as a treat, especially when the weather w as hot. Cool keeping underground chambers known as "YAKHCHAL" were used to save snow or taken from snowfall that remained at the top of the mountain by summer c apital- HAGMATENA. The Persians, further invented a special chilled food, which was made from rose water and vermicelli, and was being served to royalty during summer. Saffron, fruits and various other flavors were being used to mix with ic e for thousands of years. Ice was being served as cold foods by the ancient civi lizations. The BBC reports that a frozen mixture of milk and rice was used in China around 200 BC. Roman Emperor Neo had ice brought from mountains and combined it with fruit toppings. The first people to use milk as a major ingredient in the production of ice cream were the Arabs. Sugar was used by them to sweeten it rather than fruit juices and perfected means of commercial production. In the early 10th century, ice cream had become very famous among the major Arab cities like Bagdad etc. It was being produced using milk and cream, and also yogurt was being used somet imes and was flavored wit rosewater, dried fruits and nuts. It is believed that the recipe was based on older ancient Arabian recipes which were it is presumed the first and precursors to Persian Faloodeh. The Mughal Emperors, in the 16th century used relays of horsemen to brin g ice from the Hindu Kush to Delhi, where it was used in fruit sorbets. 1674 was the year where the first recipe for flavored ice appears in Nicolas Lem ery's " Recueil de curiosities rares et novellas' de plus admirables effets de l a nature" . In 18th century, ice cream recipes appeared in England and America. In the year 1832, an African confectioner named Augustus Jackson, not only crea ted multiple ice cream recipes but he also invented techniques to manufacture ic e cream. The ice cream sundae was invented in the 19th century. Many people claim ed to have invented it, but there was no sufficient conclusive evidence to suppo rt their stories. The ice cream cone and Banana split became popular in the earl y 20th century. Premium and super premium varieties, which were thicker ice creams, were invented in the 1980's and they were being branded by famous companies like Hag gen Dazs and Ben & Jerry's.


The per capita income of ice cream consumption is very low in India. It is 300ml per annum. Because of a number of reasons, this trend is slowly changing. Indian summers are interrelated to ice creams. We can see a variety of colorful pushcarts selling variety of ice creams in numerous flavors from the traditional vanilla, strawberry, chocolate to unusual varieties like Sundaes, Ma tka kulfi etc . There are a number of varieties introduced my many ice cream com panies now. For example, the ice cream varieties for the kids would be totally different from that for the teenagers or for the adults. For those who love to have ice cream at ease, there are a number of ice cream parlors that are opening up like the famous Corner House, Edge Ice Cream parlous etc. A 100 ml scoop of ice cream that is offered may contain up to 50% air. Because of this, the business is a highly profitable undertaking to get into At times, the profits can go up to 100% too. However, there are many threats to th is industry as well. THE ICE CREAM INDUSTRY- AN OVERVIEW Exploring the industry data first. In 2007, the global market of ice creams was pegged at $61.6 billion in terms of market value or 15 billion liters in terms o f volume. Of this, the Asian market was worth $13 billion in terms of market va lue or 5,128 million liters in terms of volume. Looking at the Indian market, th e Indian ice cream trade is presently projected to be worth Rs. 2,000 crores, bu dding at a rate of approximately 12%. RS Sodhi, Chief General Manager of Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing (GCMMF), the producers of Amul, tells, The ice cream marketplace in India can be grouped into: the branded market and the grey market . The branded market currently is 100 million liters per annum prized at Rs. 800 crores. The grey market contains small local company and cottage industry". In the year 2008-09, in the branded ice cream market, Amul gained the number one p lace, with a market share of 38%, subsequently Kwality Walls at 14%, Vadilal at 12% and Mother Diary at 8%. Regardless of an upright growth rate, the ice cream business faced the t hreat of low per capita consumption. The key trends are: Rising occurrence of international brands lashing consumption in metros and mini -metros. Accessibility of several options to consumers from ice-creams to conventional ku lfis to new forms such as gelatos and flavored yoghurts. Increasing tendency of going out to consume ice-cream. With growing health awareness especially among young metropolitan population, hi gher spotlight on fat free, low sugar and pro-biotic variants. Falling blow of seasonality on consumption. Several players ready to raise presence with aggressive expansion plans. Budding edge on smaller and profitable formats. In the midst of a per capita consumption of only 0.30 liters in a year, ice crea m in India has presently not realized its full capacity. INDUSTRY AT A GLANCE The per capita consumption of ice cream in India is roughly 300 ml, as against t he world consumption average of 2.3 liters per annum. Vanilla, Strawberry and Ch ocolate altogether comprise just about 60% of the market. The per capita consump tion of ice creams in India is just 300 ml per annum, as against to 22 liters in the USA, 18 liters in Australia, 14 liters in Sweden. India is a way behind in terms of the world average per capita ice cream consumption of 2.3 liters per a nnum. India is a country with hot weather with a youthful population. Pankaj Cha turvedi, Executive Director of Baskin Robins, explains Indian cuisine has a huge range of desserts. Dinner or lunch is never complete with ice creams". Apart fro m desserts, ice cream also vies for notice with other like foods for example in summers with cold drinks, coffee, juice, etc. An additional trend that is witnes sing a alteration is the seasonal nature of the industry. Having told that, the peak season for ice cream still remained the summer months of April-June and fal ls in the months of November-February. According to the industry troupe, this dr ift specially holds accurate for the North and the Western parts of India. Accor ding to Pankaj Chaturvedi, The deviation in sales for Baskin Robins can vary from

1530% from season to off season depending on layout and brand.

THE ICE CREAM BUSINESS The ice cream market has conventionally developed at a stable rate of 12% year-o n-year. The development in Ice cream market has been mainly due to intensificatio n of distribution channels and cold chain infrastructure. Channels such as Mobil e retailing Units have been rising year to year to get in touch with a larger se t of customers. Further, customers also have the option of trying out diverse pr oduct offerings from diverse brands to keep them energized, Paul Thachil, CEO Dai ry & Foods, Mother Dairy Fruit & Vegetable. What precisely is defined as ice cream under the guiding principle? The Prevention of Food Adulteration (PFA) Rules, 1955 defines ice cream as a frozen product that contains not less than 10% milk fat, 3.5% protein, 36.0% total solids, and 0.5% permitted stabilizer and emulsifier. Marketers who move a way from these norms diplomatically call their product "frozen dessert. However, it is unlawful to sell ice cream which has contents below these specified standard s. The fundamental steps in the manufacturing of ice cream are normally first blend ing the ingredients, pasteurization, homogenization, aging the mix, freezing, an d hardening. Now, in the hardening procedure, the ice cream mixture is integrate d with air. This is done to craft the product light and creamy. This is essential be cause without air, ice cream would be like frozen ice. The ice cream can include a significant quantity of air, even up to half of its volume. This perhaps make s ice cream a business with good profit margin. Manish Vithalani of Space Dotz comments, A ice cream blend (consisting of milk, e mulsifier, sugar and so on) cost about Rs. 60-65 a liter. And in one liter we ca n include up to one liter of air. Hence, per liter the mix would cost us roughly Rs 32. If we take a 150 ml cup, we can create 13 cups of ice cream from one lit er of mixture. Calculating on that foundation, the per cup cost comes to about R s 5. Now add to that Rs 5 value of packaging cost, electricity, labor, transport ation, advertisement cost etc. It comes to around Rs 10 per cup. Depending on the assortment, the profit margin hence can go up to even 100%. While for bigger co mpetitors, the distribution and advertising costs eats into the profit margins, for smaller players, it is the volume that matter. Apart from selling their products through kiosks, parlors and push carts, a cons iderable part of the revenue is got from corporate sales. Says Pankaj Chaturvedi , About 55% of our business is contributed by selected ice cream parlors and kios ks whereas 30% is from corporate or food service. The remaining comes in from re tail and exports. A chef at a well-known five star Delhi hotel tells us their banquet section itse

lf buys 6 gallons of ice cream from manufacturers on a daily basis. The demand, he tells, rises up to 10 gallons through peak season. What is the expenditure for establishing a small scale ice cream manufacturing u nit? Manish Vithalani comments, The expenditure for establishing a small scale ic e cream manufacturing unit could be roughly Rs. 10 lakh, together with the cost of a ice cream unit, labor (3-4), storage units, and so on. This cost does not i nclude the land cost. Lately, a number of marketers who have entered the market a re playing on innovative aspects, for example, natural flavors made from fruits. Some marketers like Mumbai-based Space Dotz are also approaching up with new te chnology. According to Dilip Jagad of Space Dotz, Unlike the normal ice cream, ou r product comes in the form of balls. In addition, the product has no air mixtur e and uses cryogenic technology, used in rocket science. Another remarkable moder nization was the pro-biotic and low fat ice cream bought into the market by Amul . THE CHALLENGES There are quite a few challenges that affect the industry unfavorably. As told b efore, the industry marketers not only face competition from their competitors, but also from other like foods. Although changing, customers still believe ice c ream as a dessert and a side item. Sharing his knowledge, Siddhartha Jaiswal of Joos, a juice bar chain, says, We had introduced ice creams on an tentative basis in our juice outlets in Ahmadabad. We noticed that customers order ice creams a s a side item or only when they were accompanied by children. We ultimately deci ded not to move forward with it. Furthermore, of the ice cream consumption in Ind ia, almost 60% is accounted to by three flavors of vanilla, strawberry and choco late. And to be on the safer side, major marketers be inclined to play around th ese flavors only. For major players, local competition from small players is y et another major problem. Another major issue faced by the industry players, specially while development, is reduced infrastructure such lack of cold storage and in case of rural access, even erratic power supply becomes a question. This is mainly correct for big pl ayers. Manish Vithalani says, Apart from the existence of other players, an added obstacle is the high rent charged for floor space, particularly in malls. This also becomes a crisis when we try to develop.



Seetha Enterprises, was started in 1994, as a distributors for Indiana Ice Cream . Since Mr.Giriyappa had 154 varieties in marketing sales of Ice Cream, he reach ed the turnover of Rs.2.25 Lakh per month from a 900days 25,000 P.M. After seein g the demand from the market, he started manufacturing Mr.Mini Dairy Rich brand ic e creams in 1996, with a small investment of about Rs.2.5 Lakh. In 1997 we registered the company as Seetha Ice Creams Pvt. Ltd. Today w e have reached the turnover of around 2 Crores and the number of outlets were in creased for 15-20 the 1996 to an outstanding 800 in 2006 across small Karnataka, Tamilnadu, and Andrapradesh, we have about 17 distributors covered places like Bangalore, Mandya, Mysore, Mangalore, Hassan, Kolar, K.G.F, Tumkur, Davangre, Ch itradurga, Bellary, Hubli, Hindupura, Hosur, Krishnagiri, Salem, Thirchy, Maddur , Gowribidanur, Belgaum, Mangalore, Puttur, Sullia. Since 2-3 years, we are growing at a steady rate of around 50% every yea r. In another 3-4 years we are expecting a minimum turnover of around 6-7 crores for which we may required a big place for the factory. Since there are more 125 -150 varieties of ice creams we make in have keep minimum quality of holding mat erials of 125-150 varieties, it requires large place for storage. Accordingly si nce we have to keep sufficient stock of 125-150 varieties of ice creams, we have to have huge cold rooms to store the ice creams. Hence we may require at list 3 acres of land. The total number of dealers in the year 2012 has increased to over 15002000 and there is a vast opportunity of increasing this dealership to around 500 0 in the coming years. The annual turnover which was 2crores in the year 2006 i s increased to around 10crores in the year 2012. At present, the factory runs it s operations in Industrial Estate of Rajajinagar. The company is planning to exp and its manufacturing operations in the Industrial area of Bidadi so that it can hold a lot of cold storage rooms and raw materials and also expand its market t o the northern part of India. We also supply ice creams to major food chains like the Adiga's, Kamath and many other caterers. SCOPE: 1. At present the Company has around 45 employees for the turnover of Rs.2 Crores, In another 3-4 years, we may appoint at least 50-75 more people & hence we will give at least 100 to 125 employments. 2. Since we appoint dealers and distributors to sell our product on commiss ion basis, indirectly we give self employment to hundreds of people. 3. Since the VAT for Ice Cream Industry is 12.5%, in 3-4 years, we may pay around 1 Crores rupees per annum to the Government of Karnataka as the value add ed tax. 4. With the staff contribution & others we may pay approx. Rs. 50000 per an

num as professional tax for Government of Karnataka. 5. At present there is no excise duty for Ice Cream.

6. Since our basic raw material is milk , milk powder & sugar (95%) and we are directly helping farmers.

ICE CREAM MARKET IN SOUTH Lunch or Dinner is incomplete without ice cream. Eating ice creams is no more a rich man's habit.
