BRAND AWARENESS For selecting the defined size of sample from the target populationconvenience, a non probability sampling technique is adopted.Sample size: A sample of 250 students was selected from the targeted populationfor the present study.STATISTICAL TOOLS USED: For the purpose of analysis, weighted average method and percentage methodare used for calculations and the result was interpreted. This test was used tominimize the error of the data collected. Graphs were used to represent the data forthe better and accurate interpretation of the results.Statistical tools used:Simple tools are used for analysis purpose. They are as follows: 1. Percentage analysis 2. Weighted Average methodPERCENTAGE ANALYSIS Percentage refers to a special kind of ratio in making comparisonbetween two or more data and to describe relationships between the datas. 48 Department of MBA,BITS ,KMM </li> <li> 9. BRAND AWARENESSPercentage can also be used to compare the relative terms, the distribution oftwo or more series of data.WEIGHTED AVERAGE ANALYSIS There are cases where the relative importance of the different items is not thesame. When, this so, the researcher can use the weighted arithmetic mean. TheWeight stands for the relative importance of the different items. The formula forcomputing weighted arithmetic mean is: Xw = WX / WWhere -- Xw represents the weighted arithmetic mean -- X represents the variable values, i.e., X1, X2, ..Xn.-- W represents the weights attached to variable values, i.e.,W1, W2 Wn, respectively. An important problem that arises while using weighted mean is regardingselection of weights. Weights may be either actual or arbitrary. i.e., estimated. 48 Department of MBA,BITS ,KMM </li> <li> 10. BRAND AWARENESSNeedless to say, if actual weights are available, nothing like this. However, in theabsence of weights, arbitrary or imaginary weights may be used. The use of arbitrary weights may lead to some error, but it is better that noweights at all. In practice, it is found that if weights are logically assigned keepingthe phenomena in view, the error involved will be so small that it can be easily overlooked.METHODOLOGYPrimary and secondary data were collected with the help ofquestionnaire and report of the company respectively. Primary data was collected by Questionnaire method. Secondary data was collected from the Manuals, Brochures and website of the company. 48 Department of MBA,BITS ,KMM </li> <li> 11.

Biscuits arebeing consumed by all sectors of the society across the urban and rural markets inalmost all parts of the country. In India, biscuits are being manufactured both in organized and unorganizedsectors. India is the worlds second largest biscuit manufacturing country more thanRs.3000 crore biscuit industries. China is the global market leader in biscuit industryand makes 1.2 million tonnes of biscuits per annum. But what makes India adelicious proposition is that, despite these huge volumes, the percapita consumptionof biscuits in India is about 1.2 kg, compared to more than 12 kg in developedcountries. In just last few years, the biscuit business has expanded dramatically with theentry of several multinational players. Measured by the number of companies, thereshould be a significant decline in industry concentration perhaps more than half,however just as it was before the entry of the multinational players. Parle andBritannia still hold over Indians branded biscuits business segment. 48 Department of MBA,BITS ,KMM </li> <li> 13.

Britannia is the marketleader with high market share followed by Parle and Dukes. Dukes with its wide range of products and with strict quality control, it iscontinuously improving in India for last few years. Competition form unorganizedsectors is totally uncontrollable. There is a fierce competition in this industry. Major players in the biscuit industry have established their brands with adefinite market share. On average, the industry spends 5 to 10 percent onadvertisements in the media, sponsoring sports and games participation in exhibitionsas part of their volume/brand building exercise.
