Aarong Dairy

...BUS 620 “Aarong Dairy: Marketing mix” Submitted to: DR. Jashim Uddin Ahmed Submitted by: Mohammed Mostafizur Rahman ID# 132 0478 060 Date: 10th January, 2014 Abstract This report is based on the marketing mix of Aarong dairy company which is under BRAC Social Enterprise. The current market situation, position, segmentation, SWOT analysis and marketing mix is described here along with the history and background of Aarong dairy company. I have analyzed the customer behaviour and current market situation of Aarong dairy by using secondary data as there was limitation to gather primary data because of the current political turmoil. Introduction BRAC’s microfinance program used to enable farmers to buy land and cows in order to produce milk. While BRAC helped these farmers to generate income through micro financing, dairy farmers still did not have consistent access to the market. The demand of milk in a single village was not enough to generate a hefty profit. A lot of milk wasted because dairy farmers did not have enough demand to sell their milk and no proper refrigeration to store the unsold milk. Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, founder of BRAC, noticed this problem and proposed establishing a milk factory to collect milk from local farmers for a fair price. As a result, BRAC initiated BRAC Dairy & Food Project (BDFP, also known as Aarong dairy) in 1998 to serve as a market for dairy farmers throughout rural Bangladesh. Today, Aarong Dairy not only secures fair prices......

Dairy Farm of 50 Animals Project

...DAIRY FARM OF 50 ANIMALS PROJECT BRIEF:  Dairy farming is an agro-based activity, buffaloes and cows can be raised for milk production in an organized manner for commercial purpose. For this project, animals can be purchased from the animal markets or breeders in Sahiwal, Sheikhupura, Faisalabad. More than 70 percent farmers hold less than 5 acres of land. Dairy farming may prove a profitable business for small landholders. They can also grow fodder on their land to feed dairy animals, without disturbing the main crop. Dairy farming is one of the best projects if professionally done on small land holdings. The return of the land used for feeding animals is higher as compared to land used for traditional cropping. The economical size of the herd is 50 animals, which will grow into 180 animals within a few years. Cows are also proposed in the herd, as they are high yields and efficient converters of feed into milk. This herd would consist of 75 percent buffaloes and 25 percent cows. A cow, on average, yields 14 litters milk a day over a lactation period of 305 days whereas the buffalo, on an average, yields 10 litters a day over a lactation period of 280 days. The lactation period is the period during which the animals provide milk. These animals are called wet animals. Generally the lactation days of cows are 305 days and that of buffaloes is 280 days. For calculation, 77 percent of the total number of cows has been taken as wet cows and 67 percent of......

San Pedro, Maranatha Hope T. Sollestre, John Adrian F. Velasquez, Frances Anne S. Submitted to Prof. Rosario Taylo January 28, 2011 Campaign Title: “Pambansang ice cream, ating tangkilikin!” I. Background/Research Arce Dairy Ice Cream, formerly Selecta, started on January 1990 when the Arce family signed away the lifework spanning three generations. Today, Arce Dairy faces stiff competition in the marketplace for established names such as Magnolia, Nestle, Selecta, BTIC. Arce Dairy Ice Cream was established by Don Ramon Arce, Sr. in the year 1935. It was during 30’s when Don Ramon Sr., became a member of President Quezon’s staff who bought land in Novaliches where the farm was bountiful. Also, there was always pure carabao’s milk on the table which he pasteurized and brought it to Manila. That ‘sideline’ became the start of creating an idea to build their own ice cream manufacturing. In 1962, it was almost 30 years after their grieving stage for the loss of Don Ramon Sr., they decided to sign away from their business in which they also considered as a personal, emotional thing for their family. Their shares in the company were being sold to other stockholders of the Arcecon Dairy Products. After 20 years of resting from the ice cream industry, they......

Centennial Farms Dairy: Business Proposal

... Centennial Farms Dairy: Business Proposal Erica Gordon Roberts ECO561 Genevieve Turano October 7, 2014 Centennial Farms Dairy: Business Proposal Centennial Farms Dairy has served the southeastern portion of the United States for over 25 years. While its primary customer has been the 220 traditional Kroger Stores, we are looking at expanding our market share by acquiring additional customers in the region. The plant has been presented the opportunity to tap into the Sprouts Market who is new to this area but has projected a rapid growth plan over the next fifteen years. Recognizing the specialization of products that Sprouts sells, Centennial will need to consider utilizing one of its smaller plants that is currently inoperable to support the demand. Market Structure Taking into consideration the characteristics of a market including the quantity and strength of buyers and sellers, levels of competitiveness, product differentiation and the ability to enter and exit the market, the market structure of the dairy industry is a monopolistic competition. In fact Centennial produces some of its competitors’ products on site. The dairy industry is characterized by high product differentiation. While our private label does not capitalize on the market, our ability to acquire Sprouts will allow us to potentially become a monopoly of private label organics. With the established brand image of the company’s private label we will be able to enter into a new market. ......

Publications Calendar of events Prices Global Agribusiness contacts 2 8 11 13 14 21 Regional views Overview With teams around the Globe, this document sets out to give a flavour of what our local agribusiness experts are observing in their territories. This month we are reminded of the ever present impact of volatility on Global agriculture. We have seen significant falls in dairy commodities, grains and oils in 2014 with coffee soaring in the opposite direction on the back of a drought in Brazil. The moves have happened quickly (e.g dairy down over 50% in New Zealand since February 2014 and coffee spot prices up over 30% since August 2014) and this can be difficult for farm families or small holders to deal with. For example in the UK, dairy farmers have taken to public protests and blockades. At PwC we are bullish on the long term prospects for agriculture given Global population and wealth trends however we also recognise that this future optimism can be meaningless to a farmer when short term production costs exceed selling price. Agriculture is a volatile industry and participants have to put in place their own strategies to deal with this which are right for them, be it selling forward or hedging for budget certainty, insuring where possible against crop loss, keeping a buffer of cash or liquid assets......

Sustainable Farms vs. Industrial Farms

...Sustianable Farms vs. Industrial Farms Jonathan Castro DeVry University Unfortunately animal abuse is a common theme. When one thinks of animal abuse the first thought might be a dog or cat being mistreated by the owners or not being properly fed. We think of zoo animals being mishandled and we think of circus animals and the brutal and extensive training they endure. I say brutal because many of these circus animals are whipped by their handlers. Seldom do many people think of the torture farm animals go through before their body parts are shipped across the nation to grocery stores. Such harsh treatment to farm animals could be prevented if more people were aware of the living conditions industrial farm animals are placed in and the con’s of buying from a local farm. There is a nationwide epidemic of industrial farms torturing farm animals to be placed at your local grocery store. Beef cattle while in transport spend hours without food and water causing stress, which leads to illness. The cattle are skinned alive before having their throat sliced. Dairy cows wear out very quickly due to the constant stress of having to produce large quantities of milk. The chickens also have it very rough in industrial farms. They are cramped in tight spaces with not even enough room to spread their wings. Many of these chickens, due to the unnatural conditions they are placed in, develop respiratory illnesses among other disorders such as weak bones, which easily break...

Kentucky Dairy Farms in Jeopardy

...Kentucky Dairy Farms in Jeopardy Emily J. Daniel Professor Neil Conway ENG 215 July 5, 2012 Imagine having to give up your job and life investment that you have worked so hard for and have dedicated all your time, money and energy into. This is a devastating thought, especially for small dairy farmers of Kentucky. In the bluegrass state, dairy farms are in jeopardy due to the market price of milk (dairy.com). Some dairy farmers are barely breaking even, looking for extra ways to make money, or those that have no choice but to close down their operation. It is important that dairy farmers are paid a fair price for their milk to keep the industry alive by stabilizing the market price of milk and giving the farmers what they deserve for their production. It has been recorded that in 2011, Kentucky currently has 892 operating dairy’s while being down 58 less from 2010 and that our state produces just enough milk to feed the people of Kentucky (Community Farm Alliance, 2011). Prices paid to the dairy farmers are ridiculous but what is also ridiculous is the price the consumer pays for milk in the grocery. If the farmers are not getting a cut of that money who is? Processing plants are limiting the market by buying bottling plants and other processing plants to make less competition throughout the state. These processing plants then drive down the price of milk they pay to the farmers leaving them in a state of disarray. Expenses to run a farm also play a......
