Intelligent Marketing

One of the most conservative FMCG entities, GCMMF spends a mere 1% of its turnover on promotions. GCMMF has written and re-written rules of the game. Amul butter girl is one of the longest running ad campaigns in the country for 41 years. Intelligent marketing of milk, icecream and butter milk.

EXPANSION TO FOREIGN SHORES

GCMMF had signed an agreement with Wal-Mart to stock its shelves with products under its Amul brand name. Amul processed cheese, pure ghee, Shrikhand, Nutramul, Amul's Mithaee Gulab Jamuns are few of the products marketed in the US markets. 50 per cent of Americans being medically obese, and if Amul is really looking to capture the hearts of the second- and thirdgeneration Indians, offering low-fat versions of its brands, would make a lot of commercial sense. Hence targeting the large Indian community in the US markets with its niche products like mithai, packaged ready to eat foods market it can definitely expand its market to a large extent.

Defense Strategy

Moving consumers from loose milk to packaged milk and gradually move them up the value chain (tetra pack to beverages) Being exposed to a brand, it is natural for a customer to try more products

Segmentation

Wide range of product categories caters to consumers across all market segments. For example, Amul Kool is targeted at children, while teenagers prefer Kool Caf, as it has a cool imagery associated with it.

Promotion

Given this wide product portfolio, Amuls approach is to promote its brands in a rotational cycle of two to three years. After ice-creams were launched in 1996, the category was re-visited in 1999, in order to improve availability of the product and make it affordable. The focus shifted to cheese in 2001, Amul Masti Chaas in 2004-05 (sales of Masti dahi grew by 25%), Nutramul and Kool Kafe in 2006 and this year the focus is on Amul Koko cold chocolate drink
