All the marketing processes starts with the consumer and hence the consumer is a very important person to a market. In order to become a successful marketer, one must know the liking or disliking of the customers. Literature review shows that the manufacturers produce and the sellers sell whatever the consumer likes. In this sense, “consumer is the supreme in the market”. As consumers, we play a very vital role in the health of the local, national or international economy. For this study, structured questionnaire was administered on likert scale and numbers of respondents were 100 consumers from Swakrushi dairy of Mulkanoor town, Karimnagar district, India. Answers of questionnaires were tabulated and percentages of these were taken for analysis. It is concluded that majority of the consumers are purchasing milk from shops, commission agencies, consumers are satisfied with price, quality, and 74 percent consumers pay by card. Electronic media is playing significant role to adverting dairy products. It is suggested that for more business quality, prices and services be improved to compete with other manufacturers .
