EXECUTIVE SUMMARYThe organization study was done at Nadukkara Agro Processing Factory Unit, Nadukkara. The main objective of the study was to study the organizational structure of the company. This company was selected for study due to the high brand image and fame of its products. The study consisted of getting familiarized with the structure of the different departments as well as their functions. It has mainly four departments namely, production department, quality assurance and procurement department, marketing department, and finance and administration department. The time allotted for conducting the study was 4 weeks. The data was mainly collected by direct interview with the department heads as well as with the workers in the company. The company manuals, annual reports were also referred for the same purpose .The company is having a formal organization structure. The availability of raw material in plenty, nearness to the location of raw material, brand image of its products, etc. is the strength of the company. The company deals with agro based products and so the production will be seasonal. This is its main weakness. Since the society is becoming health conscious, carbonated drinks will lose its publicity and this is a great opportunity to jive. But the sudden climatic variations and competition from Frooty, Mazza, etc. are serious threats to the company. The company is running in serious losses. Its assets were taken over by Vegetable and Food Promotion Council, Keralam. The waste of the company is sold to companies like Milma.
