HISTORY OF RASNA PRIVATE LIMITED

Pioma Industries Ltd. (Pioma) is perhaps not a familiar name for the average Indian
consumer. However, Pioma's brand 'Rasna' is very well known. In fact, the name Rasna is
almost a generic name for soft drink concentrates (SDC), a segment that had been created and
nurtured by the company in the Indian beverages market. Rasna's extremely popular
advertisements with the tagline, 'I love you Rasna,' had become an integral part of the Indian
advertising folklore. In March 2002, Pioma announced a radical overhauling of its strategies
for the Rasna brand. This development was rather unexpected, as the brand had been lying
dormant since long. Rasna is the market leader in the Rs 250 crore Indian Soft drinks
concentrate industry. The SDC industry is miniscule compared to the 5000 crore carbonated
soft drink industry (CSD). The powdered soft-drink concentrate industry is worth around 90
crore.


Rasna pioneered this category and virtually owns this market with a market
share of 93%.Rasna was launched in 1982 by Pioma Industries Ltd. Rasna
positioned its product on the economy platform. The company aims to capture
the customer's " every moments of thirst " using Rasna.

Accessing all socio-economic class
(The Price)


Rasna being an Indian company from the very beginning of its lifecycle, its sole goal has
been always to make profit with the volume sale. The pricing strategy has always been the key
of Rasnas success. It targeted the mass rather than the class.
Rasna has always made its product such an way that it can be accessible to all socio-
economic classes.
Its volume sale comes from its Rs 1 or the popular 1ka 2.
The added sugar product Rasna Frootplus starts from Rs 2 and goes upto family pack
which costs Rs 105.
The Box pack has starting price of Rs 10 which is enough for 12 glass of water. The
pack has a very attractive name which is 10ka12.
The family box pack is available at the price of Rs 35 which is for 32 glass of water.
Rasna has some skus which is very interesting for regular user. The air tight jar has
different pack size with price range starting from Rs 75.
The company is constantly focusing on the rural market of India. So pricing
accurately is very important for the growth.

The accurate pricing strategy has been always the key growth driver for Rasna. They
understood that the Indian market is highly segmented. So they are making product for
each segment. Though they are always keeping an eye on there most valued which is
always the bottom class of the pyramid.

Adding an emotional touch
(The promotion)










Rasna has started its media campaign heavily since its inception. The famous mass media
campaign of I love you Rasna was one of the Indias longest running tv ad.

The promotion of Rasna is always highlighted a strong brand association with there
customer.
Rasna always want to create a good brand value by emotionally attaching there
customer with there brand.
Focus of the company always is the quality of Rasna.
Once upon a time Rasna was the only soft drink company in India. So they has been
trying for a good brand recall by there various ad campaign.
In various ad campaign of Rasna, various child artists have been used heavily. This
kind of campaign shows a high focus on quality. The quality of Rasna has been
really the success factor and in there various advertisement they are heavily
focussing on that part.















In India where summer is very hot and long, focus of a soft drink company should be
to understand that and to associate themselves with the misery of their customer.
Rasna has done a great deal to understand the pain of a long and hot summer and to
delver a product which would make that summer a little less painfull.

This kind of unique marketing idea and innovative ad campaign helped Rasna to become a
monopoly in the concentrated soft drink market.

Targeting the common man..
..A common mans product
In the initial phase Rasna as a soft drink product mainly concentrated on Middle and Lower
class society. They followed the strategy on concentrating to children market. Rasna used
children in advertising the brand to reach the preference of kids. Like the Johnson's baby,
Rasna girl became very popular among the public. Rasna has used the catchy baseline I love
u Rasna for decades. Even now people remember Rasna Baseline.

But in 2002, Rasta decided on a makeover. The company no longer wanted to cherish on kid's
drink. It dawned a new look with new logo and a new baseline Relish a gain"
highlighting the economy of using Rasna. Rasna also tried a lot of new products and variants.
All the way it was promoting itself on economy platform which has become redundant
because of the competitive pricing from carbonated soft drinks. It has also changed the
famous I love you Rasna campaign to Relish A Gain baseline which was little confusing
for the customers because of the strong marketing of the Rasna Girl and "I love U baseline.
Although the brand had a generic status in the category, it witnessed stiff competition from
Sunfill from Coke. Rasna is trying to excite the market with new products and variants.

Sitamarhi is one of the most backward districts of the country. About 4,44,998 families
live below the poverty line. The life here has been tough as the menace of flood
every year forced people to abandon their villages and take shelter in makeshift polythene tents.
The curse of Bagmati, which changes its course every year, has almost zeroed the effort by
consecutive governments to improve the status of life of downtrodden.
In the last decade the literacy of district has improved from 28.49% to 38.46%. The

pass it on to the next stage of the distribution cycle viz. wholesalers, dealers, retailers and
finally to the consumers. They do all kinds of jobs like sales and marketing, stock analysis,
inventory management & control, packaging and distribution etc.
Super stockists are appointed by the company itself for receiving, warehousing, safe storage
and dispatching of the Companys goods. The super stockist works according to the area
assigned and is liable for the dispatch of the consignments ordered by other sub- stockists and is
responsible for all theft, pilferage& damage to goods in his custody.

LPC Anal sis:




LPC= Total no of SKU sold/ No of productive call





LPC or Line Per Call is a measure of identifying the number of SKUs sold per
productive call. It is measured by dividing the number of SKUs soldin a day of a
particular market by the number of productive calls made.
SKUs stand for stock keeping unit is a unique identifier for each distinct product and
service that can be purchased. SKU use is rooted in data management, enabling the
company to systematically track its inventory or product availability, such as in
warehouses and retail outlets.

The sales figure of three month shows no similarity at all. This is due to several reasons

Rasna was doing supper concept for the 1
s
t
time in Sitamarhi district. The
introduction month is March 2010. So this whole month was taken to build up a good
distribution channel, appointing sub stockist etc.
In April 2010 the distribution channel of the company was in full swing. So the sales
figure is very high. Over demand of the product created a lack of supply in this
month.
In may 2010 the sales figure again dipped due to three reason
o Lack of timely supply.
o Over crowding the market.
o Heavy rain in certain part of the district.

Analysis and recommendation

Swot Analysis:



Strength:
o The rural marketing focusing on each and individual places of
interior,building distributor point over that place is one of greatest strength of
Rasna.
o It is basically placed in premium powder segment and in this segment it has
been able to maintain its taste, it is continuously developing its products, in this
segment Rasna has the highest available flavours in market.
o One of the majour strength lies in the packaging. The rasna packs start from 1
rupee and goes upto 85 rupees.
o It is came up with lots of new products like Rasna fruitplus which is sugarmix,
rasna fruitplus lite and the newly launched rasna glucose.



Weakness:
o There are few weaknesses like the majour products of Rasna are seasonal. So
the only in a particular time the demand for this raises.
o This also include another problem related to brand recall.
o It should also consider its promotional issue to enter into the peoples heart and
also look on its rate.

One of the majour problem is it should take action on piracy or on them who produces duplicate
products. This can be done by creating awareness.





Opportunity:
o Many opportunities are still there to make this brand more strong. It can also
bring its international products into Indian market.
o It has also opportunity to enter into ready drink section,it can also introduce
fruit juice.
o Entering into glucose section is definitely a good initiative. Now rasna
premium powders are seasonal products but if it sell these products by making
it ready drink then and in a better price then the sell may increase.








Rasna Private Ltd. Page 28

2. Economic Times
Threat:
o The majour threat for rasna is that the big brands like HUL,PARLE
AGRO,NESTLE etc. They already have a established brandname, large
network,invest more, may come with much better quality with better taste and
may take a aggressive brand promotion. If these brands enter into this premium
drink powder segment segment then problem may arise.
o The another threat to enter into ready drink section or fruit juce section, which
is much suitable for rasna might may be heard as the other brands have already
established their brand value and fame.

Rasna 1 ka 2 sells the most in Bihars Sitamarhi district along with 10 ka 12 and 32
glass.


Rasna Fruitplus being a new product should have penetrated the market but due to
improper and untimely promotions and ads the gap between products and consumers
have increased.


The entire product line does not sell along with the product width. People prefer
orange and mango flavour the most and the likability of pineapple, lemon and cola-
cola are still very stringent throughout the region.


Promotional events along with the distribution of promotional materials are nil.


Rasna has managed to penetrate on the SDC market globally.


Recommendations:

Sursand, Bairgania and Sibhar region of Sitamari is a potential market so it is hereby
suggested to look into the area. It is definite that it would contribute to the total sales
more in the next year.
The untimely dispatch of goods from the depot to the super-stockiest needs to be
taken care of as it leads to cancellations of order bookings.
Unavailability of goods at certain periods needs to be taken care of which leads to
sore relationships of sub-stockists with retailers in the market.
Retailers of certain regions tend to buy goods from Patna at wholesale prices and sell
it in the market at high margin. This in effect leads to low orders to the sub-stockist
from the retailers so it is suggested that an equal price needs to be maintained so that it
costs equal to all from wherever they buy.
Promotional events along with the distribution of brochures, stickers and leaflets are
nil. So, it is hereby recommended to distribute such materials to the sub-stockists and
retailers which will helping in increasing the brand value.
