Dean Foods vs. Dutch Lady Milk Industries The dairy industry will be our point of interest as we look at two very different companies in two different countries. Dean Foods is located within the United States, and Dutch Lady is located in Malaysia. This analysis will look at both sets of financial statements for 2009 and see how they compare. There will be many different variables that will play into how these financial statements measure up to each other. Dean Foods production began in 1976 and is part of a larger organization called Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar. We will only be looking at the financial statements for Dean Foods out of this organization. Dutch Lady's incorporation began in 1963 and is also a part of a larger organization called Royal Friesland Campina. With this organization we will only be looking at the financial statements for Dutch Lady. By taking two dairy organizations that are small parts of larger corporations, it might seem to make the companies appear to be more of an "apples to apples" comparison. The two companies that we are looking at in 2009 are both publicly traded on the stock market. Dean Foods can be found on the New York Stock Exchange, while Dutch Lady would be found on Bursa Malaysia, the local stock exchange in Malaysia. (www.dutchlady.com.my) As we look at the stock market data from 2009, we learn some interesting facts about both of these companies. If one examines the past five years for both companies on this stock market, it is easy to get a good look at how they fared in 2009. According to this data, Dutch Lady had a very rough time on the exchange in the beginning of 2009. Looking closely, we can see that going into the second quarter of the exchange the company began to increase in its exchange value. Dutch Lady started…...

...Sanna Ispahany Ms McGuire ENG 3U1-02 16 April, 2012 Food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Every person in this room uses these some of the products produced under these three major industries several times a day, every day. Many of us believe that these products are safe for use and consumption; that the monitoring agencies put in place are doing their job. I too used to think that all of the products on the market were tested and unshakeably safe. I never would have begun to imagine that the hamburger at McDonald’s, or the shampoo I used, or the medicine I took could cause more harm than good. I never realized that these corporations were more concerned with their bottom lines than society. As consumers we place a great deal of trust in the manufacturers of our products to ensure their products are safe to use or consume and as consumers, these companies are robbing us of our right to know exactly what these products are, how they’re made, and what they contain. Most people have no idea of what really happens in these industries, and how these products come to be, as well as the shockingly low standards that exist. When I say cosmetics, I’m not talking about just makeup. I’m talking about deodorant, toothpaste, skin products, shampoo, conditioner, perfume, cologne, shaving cream, and hair products. These products are grossly neglected in terms of regulation; this is CLEARLY shown through products such as the “Pure and Gentle” Johnson’s baby shampoo which contained not......

Important sub sectors in food processing industries are fruit and vegetable processing, fish-processing, milk processing, meat and poultry processing, packaged/convenience foods, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks and grain processing. According to Ministry of Food Processing Industries, the size of the food processing industry was about Rs.315, 000 crores and included Rs.99, 000 crores of value added products.

...CASE STUDY HOMEWORK CORPORATE FINANCE 1 The Situation: In 2010 a new company was created in order to enter into the food industry. They spent many months in studying the market, engineering the products and the commercial strategy, find out the production plants. At the end of 2010 the business plan is ready and the company has already participated to an exhibition where many potential customers said to be very interested to the project. The problem: A private equity institution gets in touch with the company in order to buy 30% of the company buying new shares. The company wonders about the value of such shares, that is why the company asks a consultant to provide an estimation. The business idea: To manufacture in Italy, thanks to the well-known reliable partners, in order to maintain high quality. This way the company will be the leader in the market. To create franchising shops, in order to develop the brand and the customers' loyalty. To let franchisee pay weekly only the final goods he has already sold. This way: The company knows the daily amount of sales and also the product mix. Moreover it becomes easier to modify the production and to minimize the stock. Cash-inflows get closer, while the working capital investment becomes lower with a lower customer credit risk. Financial forecast: The business plan has been developed looking at an exhaustive market analysis. Forecast data are reliable; they refer to the first five years. The target is to open 80......

Food Processing Industry in India

...FOOD PROCESSING IN INDIA Corporate Catalyst India A report on Indian Food Processing Industry 1. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW India is the world’s second largest producer of food next to China, and has the potential of being the biggest with the food and agricultural sector. The food processing industry is one of the largest industries in India-it is ranked fifth in terms of production, consumption, export and expected growth. The food industry is on a high as Indians continue to have a feast. Fuelled by what can be termed as a perfect ingredient for any industry - large disposable incomes - the food sector has been witnessing a marked change in consumption patterns, especially in terms of food. Increasing incomes are always accompanied by a change in the food basket. The proportionate expenditure on cereals, pulses, edible oil, sugar, salt and spices declines as households climb the expenditure classes in urban India while the opposite happens in the case of milk and milk products, meat, egg and fish, fruits and beverages. For instance, the proportionate expenditure on staples (cereals, grams, pulses) declined from 45 per cent to 44 per cent in rural India while the figure settled at 32 per cent of the total expenditure on food in urban India. A large part of this shift in consumption is driven by the processed food market, which accounts for 32 per cent of the total food market. It accounts for US$ 29.4 billion, in a total estimated market of US$ 91.66 billion. The Confederation......

Goat's Milk Industry in the Philippines

...MILKSTAR: EVERYDAY FRESHNESS CATBAGAN. JUE. PAYNO.REYES.TIU. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY MILKSTAR Goat’s Milk is a fairly young product in the Php39B drinking milk market. Entering the field on January 2010, their milk is produced in the Alaminos Goat Farm located in Alaminos, Laguna. MILKSTAR uses the best breed of goats for their milk production and feeds them with the healthiest and greenest foods. The meticulous attention given by the Almeda family to their goats is the main reason why MILKSTAR can claim to be the healthiest, safest, and most beneficial variant of milk that tastes great too! With a great product such as MILKSTAR Goat’s Milk, it should also follow that the consumers will patronize their product. Variants such as strawberry and chocolate flavours even cater to the tastes of the younger demographic. However, with competitors such as Nestlé, Magnolia, Cowhead, and Alaska (among others) that can bank on big budgets and accessible advertising channels to grab the market, it has become increasingly difficult for MILKSTAR to catch the attention of its target market. Goat’s milk is one of the more beneficial variants of milk, providing various essential vitamins and minerals (such as protein, calcium, iron, phosphorous, and Vitamin B), and can be taken by lactose intolerant consumers. MILKSTAR is served fresh everyday and is very easy to digest as compared to other milk variants. These benefits easily put MILKSTAR over the competition, but with the lack of consumer......
