a different taste into the entire meal and is loved by almost every
person. It is also used all over the world in varied form and
Pickling began 4,000 years ago using cucumbers native to India.
This was used as a way to preserve food for out of season use
and for long journeys. Salt Park and salt beef were common
staples for sailors before the days of steam engines. Although
the process was invented to preserve foods, pickles are also
made and eaten because people enjoy the resulting flavor.
Pickling may also improve the nutritional value of food by
introducing vitamins produced by Bactria.
The term pickle is derived from the Dutch word pekel which
means brine. In U.S and Canada, pickle, almost means pickled
cucumbers except when it is used figuratively.

transport of finished goods from the warehouse to the
wholesaler’s warehouse. These trucks can carry a large amount
of load and also perform equally. They can travel up to a speed

Malnutrition is a condition that results from eating a diet in
which nutrients are not enough such that it causes health
problems and sometimes even death.

Every second child in India suffers from malnutrition and 42.5%
Indian children are its victims. These figures are a wakeup call
and we must do our utmost at a time when Indian economy is on
a strong growth trajectory creating public awareness on the
different dimensions of malnutrition is a key requirement and I
hope the campaign creates an enabling social environment to not
only understand but also take informed collective action.
Cost effective plans
for the product
Nalapaka pickles are manufactured keeping in mind the quality
of the pickles while the costs are reduced.
Hence, the firm produces the raw materials on its own, ensuring
quality of the raw materials while significantly reducing the
28 | page
costs by completely mollifying the costs of the agents who
generally provide such raw materials.
The costs of manufacturing process is also significantly reduced,
since we shall utilize very little machinery and more number of
people, which will also provide employment to the rural
residents, while reducing my costs significantly.
Cost effective plans for
The promotion plan
Sales promotion: Introducing offer will be provided on
all flavors of pickles. The free samples given along with larger
quantities will be samples of flavors of pickles that are sold less
when compared to the other flavors in the product range. Hence,
trying to make these un popular flavors popular.
29 | page
Advertising: Cost can be reduced for television advertising
and newspaper advertising but the other media have constant
cost which when reduced also reduces effectiveness. The
television advertisements will be short using standard cameras
and original locations which reduces my cost on the equipment
and studio setup. Instead of running an advertisement on the
newspaper it is more cost effective to introduce pamphlets into
Event promotion: Event promotion are second most cost
effective means of promoting after social media marketing. It
helps in generating genuine leads along with branding amongst
your extract target audience. Hence, no money is wasted on
promoting the brand out of the target audience.

Social media marketing:it is the most cost effective
means of promotion with very effectiveness. Using social media
promotion we can filter the people who will view my
advertisements or follows us over these platforms. This again
ensures that we don’t leave the target market unnecessarily, it
also helps in deciding during what time interval my
advertisement must run on the platforms.
