The objective behind the visit was going beyond the classroom learning making students aware of how various activities related to marketing, finance and human resource were carried out in these organizations. Industrial visits provide an excellent opportunity to get an exposure the culture of their organization.
We started our journey at 7:00 am with lot of enthusiasm. The students were given instruction about the code of conduct to be followed in their premises. There were altogether 100 students accompanied by three male faculties and a lady faculty. After reaching Maddur breakfast was provided with a variety of dishes. We then continued our journey and reached NSL Sugar Ltd. The colossal structures of the company was visible from outside and everyone were curious to make their way inside. Company staff Mr. Anurag took us on a campus tour explaining us the various processes involved during the manufacturing of Sugar. We witnessed the procurement of raw material and the stages it undergoes before hits the market.
We then headed towards KMF Maddur . On reaching we were welcomed by few staffs and one of them accompanied us to all the units in the company. We were explained in a simple manner how the milk was procured and the stages it undergoes before the consumption.
After the meals we then made a visit to the Lazza Ice cream Factory. A group of 15 were only allowed to the enter the processing area at a time. We were made to wear a cap to keep up the utmost hygiene conditions in the plant. We witnessed the making of ice-cream with different flavours and experienced the chill in the storage room where the ice creams were stored.
Overall it was a great learning experience to all the students as they were exposed to the working environment of the business enterprises. It also helped in knowing the various operational aspects of the company. It turned out to be a delightful experience to all.
