Consumers are very Synthetic colour conscious when it comes to cakes or any other products. Cakes are coming in different colours with different flavours which are not accepted in the market is very high demand. Sree Kumaran Marketing has products that have 100 percent of natural extract and are distributed to certain brands. Many good responses are received for these types of added natural ingredients products. Sugar free products are concentrated for consumers who are diabetic. These are included in sugar-free mixtures, liquid sugar-free ingredients which are added in cakes, sponges and creams. “What all innovations are brought up for sugar-free products, it is becoming failure, nothing is successful. The response is very low. Sugar-free cakes are very low in the market. People who are diabetic avoid those cakes or consume in low quantities”. Added vijay.
Expansion and Marketing
The pandemic has not really affected the distribution channel. The bakery items were also being distributed in the online food platforms like swiggy and zomato, therefore the demand was always there in making the items and raw materials. Sree Kumaran Marketing has another branch at Erode and is mainly concentrating in the distribution of their products to Pondicherry as well as Kerala. Most of the distributors are already there in India and have built up a strong distribution channel. Therefore the needs are very low domestically. Sree Kumaran Marketing follows a very silent advertising strategy, although they are present in their website and social media platforms like Facebook, they believe that the attraction percentage is very low. “Presently, we deal with around fifteen brands and we are not in the plan of expanding into the big distribution channel, as the consumer needs are not upto the expectations. We are always connected to the sales executives and Chefs for further leads and focusing on the bakery and home bakers”. concluded vijay.
