So, according to the Ministry of Agriculture, in January — July, 2004 the volume of manufacture of animal oil in Russia has increased in comparison with 2003 in 2,2 times.
As one of the basic tendencies of the Russian market of soft fats in the last some years are possible to name reduction of a share of weighed out oil for the benefit of packaged. Concerning consumption of animal oils the tendency to some decrease(reduction) of preference of a butter and growth of consumption of the facilitated oils is traced.
Let's give the brief characteristic of a modern condition of the market of animal oils in one of the Central regions of Russia – in the Kaluga region.
Results of researches (monitorings of assortment of animal oils, the prices for them in shops; interrogations of consumers), carried out(spent) by the Inter-regional marketing centre "Kaluga - Moscow" in November 2004 - February, 2005, testify that in retail trading structures of Kaluga the wide assortment of animal oils is submitted. Production of known Russian manufacturers, and also local manufacturers is most distributed. Production of large world manufacturers – so-called "global" suppliers is submitted a little bit. In relation to "global" suppliers the obvious priority is observed of the Russian manufacturers.
Among the largest manufacturers of animal oils in region it is necessary to note the following enterprises: the Obninsk dairy factory; Агрофирма "Оптина" (. Козельск); the Obninsk creamery № 2; Детчинский a dairy factory; Жуковский a dairy factory; Балабановский a dairy factory; Бабынинский a dairy factory.

Animal oils are submitted in packing of 180 gramme, 200 gramme, 250 gramme, 500 gramme in pergament packing, a foil and plastic banks. Packing of 200 gramme (butter), 250 gramme (soft oil and margarine) and 500 gramme is most distributed. The average price for a pack of oil in weight of 200 gramme makes 17 - 29 roubles depending on the trade mark, retail shop. The average price for packing of margarine or to bank of soft oil changes within the limits of 8-15 roubles.
Characterizing features of assortment of animal oils and the prices for them in the Kaluga network structures, it is necessary to note, that now in city it is possible to allocate three largest networks which are carrying out retails of articles of food. One of these networks national; two others – local networks of Kaluga. There are the networks positioned as дискаунтеры, and also as offering products mainly for the provided layers of the population of city.
The data of monitorings testify that the breadth of assortment of animal oils is a little bit connected to the factor of an accessory(a belonging) of a shop to the certain network structure – in relation to not network shops she(it) more on 5-10 %. More significant communication(connection) is traced between breadth of assortment of animal oils and the area of a shop. With increase of the area, the assortment becomes more various.
In network shops the assortment of new production which has recently left on the market, in particular, trade marks of animal oils of manufacturers of the Kaluga region is more widely submitted. In the national network structure which is carrying out work in city, production of local manufacturers of southern regions of Russia, in particular – Krasnodar territory is widely submitted.
For network shops the tendency to the greater представленности, than in not network shops, animal oils known world(global) – "global" manufacturers (for example, a butter "Anchor", "President" is characteristic; soft oil "Rama"; margarine "Voimix"; « Valley Сканди » and some other).
Communication(connection) between the price for oil - fatty production and an accessory(a belonging) of a shop to the certain network structure is ambiguous. In many respects she(it) depends on the network and as she(it) positions herself is designed for what target audience. So, in shops of the networks positioned as дискаунтеры, the prices for animal oils as a whole are lower, than in small not network shops, (on the average - on 2-8 roubles). In shops of the network positioned as offering products for more provided layers of the population of city, the price for various kinds of oil and mayonnaise are similar to the prices of not network shops, and for a number(line) of positions and is a little bit higher (on the average – 3-6 roubles).
As a whole both in network, and in not network shops mainly inexpensive production of animal oils concerning the bottom and average price segment is submitted. More expensive(dear) trade marks appropriate to top of an average price segment and the top segment (and submitted basically global manufacturers), make an insignificant part of the offer of retail trading operators; a little more they are submitted in a network focused on more provided layers of the population of city, some largest not network shops.
The parity(ratio) of shares of production of animal oils of federal, global and local manufacturers differs in the network structures positioned as дискаунтеры and as offering products for more provided layers of the population of city (see the diagram 2).
