Internship Report on Nishat Mills

Executive Summary

Nishat has grown from a cotton export house into the premier business group of Pakistan with 5 listed companies, concentrating on 4 core businesses; Textiles, Cement, Banking and Power Generation. Today, Nishat is considered to be at par with multinationals operating locally in terms of its quality products and management skills.

I recently have done my internship in Nishat Mills Limited, in which I got training from each of its department. The internship basically revolved around the product knowledge training. The system, the style of working & the commitment of the employees in NML is really exemplary.

The difference between the success & failure is doing things right and doing things nearly right, & NML has always tried for success & that is why it is known to be one of the leading organizations in Pakistan. Irrespective of all these positive points of Nishat Mills Limited, I have noticed a few areas where the improvement can really increase the efficiency of NML.

In this report I have given a very brief review of what I have seen during our internship I have mentioned all these as I have made an internship as according to the schedule. I also mentioned about the Textile industry in Pakistan and vision of its industry. Then I have done a detailed SWOT analysis as well as PEST Analysis.

Then I have discussed about my learning in the whole internship that is all about the Textile Terminologies and process of the productions. I have made it possible to write each and every thing that I have learnt there. I have all my practical efforts in the form of this manuscript that's the asset for my future career.

...General Mills’ Acquisition of Pillsbury from Diageo PLC Lauren Sherlock Jason Park JP Zendman 12/9/2009 General Mills’ Acquisition of Pillsbury from Diageo PLC Situation Analysis: In December 2000, management at General Mills (GM) proposed a plan to acquire Pillsbury, a bakedgoods producer, in a stock-for-stock exchange. Pillsbury is currently controlled by Diageo PLC, one of the world’s leading consumer–goods companies. The deal specifies that General Mills is to create and thus issue additional shares of common stock to Diageo in exchange for complete ownership of the Pillsbury subsidiary. If the deal is executed, Diageo will become General Mills’ largest shareholder. The consideration to Diageo would include 141 million shares of the company's common stock and the assumption of $5.142 billion of Pillsbury debt, making the deal worth over $10 billion. In addition, the agreement will contain a contingency, as up to $642 million of the total transaction value may be repaid to General Mills at the first anniversary of the closing, depending on its (20-day) average stock price at that time. Therefore, we must calculate and thus analyze the various costs and savings associated with the transaction to determine whether or not General Mills’ shareholders should vote for the proposed merger. If approved, this will be the biggest takeover in GM’s 136 years of business and General Mills will become the fifth largest food company in the world (Forster, 2002). General Mills......

Otherwise known as "Fraternity files". these essay banks were practices in which students shared term papers and submitted work that had been done by other students.[2] These essay banks inspired the commercialization of ghostwritten essay-writing practices. As early as the 1950s, advertisements were circulating college campus that described services that included ghostwritten work for dissertations, theses, and term papers.[2] In conjunction with this practice, the changing attitudes of students in the 1960s and 1970s started to stray away from diligent and engaged course work because they saw an emphasis on the benefits of community involvement.

Puppy Mills and wonder into our lives. What can be more exciting than sharing your life with a young puppy as it grows; watching it develop its own personality, and experiencing the unconditional love that is given by our furry, four-legged friends? As any devoted pet owner can tell you, proper care and nutrition can help establish a foundation of good health and ensures a long, happy life for your pet. Unfortunately, many consumers are unaware that the sweet little puppy that peered hopefully at them from the pet store window or the enticing advertisement in the newspaper that offered a pure bred puppy for such a bargain often comes with a hidden catch – these puppies, and their abundance of health problems, may be coming from a puppy mill. Puppy mills are either operated in private homes, farms or underground run organizations where they are not easily monitored by animal control units. It’s a large-scale commercial, outside, breeding facility with many different breeds of dogs. Dogs are forced to breed continuously without any rest between cycles. Starting six months after the birth of a female dog, she is bred every heat cycle. Could you imagine being six months old and being forced to have babies?! Female dogs are constantly pregnant, and due to lack of veterinary care they become extremely weak, malnourished and dehydrated quickly. Once female dogs reach the age of four or five they get to the point where they cannot produce at the rate they use to. When this happens,......

Kant & Mill

...Kant & Mill Kant and Mill were two philosophers known and recognized for their moral integrity, merit, and their contributions to society through philosophical beings. Kant and Mills perspectives are alike; yet differ, in a variety set of ways. Through an actual real life event, I will describe how their philosophical theories would be demonstrated and the consequences of those actions according to the choice that is being ultimately made. Being that they are philosophers, who has the correct theory and which theory should the world abide by? The great philosopher Kant stated that “Act only on that maxim whereby thou canst at the same time will it become a universal law.” This statement is the categorical imperative of the philosopher Immanuel Kant. Another way to describe this philosophical concept is by stating that good will should be good in itself regardless of the obstacles that may interfere with the end results of an action. Kant utilizes some space throughout his moral philosophy to argue that good will should merely depict good intentions even if the conveyer is victimized. Lets get deeper in Kant’s ethical theory. Actions that are being done only because of initial duty are morally good in relation to their maxims, the subjective principles of choice. Duty, according to Kant, “is the necessity of acting from respect for the law.” The law is the objective principle of choice. So, for Kant, for a maxim to be morally good it must conform to a universal......

...Introduction: Rice is the staple food and the largest consumed calorie source among the food grains.

Many of the rice processing units are of the traditional huller type and are inefficient. Modern rice mills are having high capacity and are capital intensive, although efficient.

...BA 3103: 11/15/2015 Critical Analysis # 3- General Mills Over time, changes occur and one of those changes are consumer demands in the food industry. More people are becoming health conscious and are interested in what they're consuming down to the ingredients used. A health trend that is occurring and taking over in all aspects in health and our not only food related. Companies are becoming aware and are taking note of these changes to this “self-care” health market. In order to appeal to the consumers these companies are going to have to shift the products their manufacturing and choose healthier products or correct how their current products are be being processed. Consumers are less interested in processed products and are appealing to fresh and organic products. One company trying to improve and advance on these changes is General Mills, Inc. General is a well-known multiple manufacturer of numerous products ranging from cereals to yogurt and many more. “It’s brand portfolio includes more than 89 other leading U.S. brands and numerous category leaders around the world” (Wikipedia).

J.S Mill

...John Stuart Mill: On Liberty Name: Sedig Elhassan Student Number: 210916914 Professor: Marc Weinstein Teacher’s Assistant: Paul amazzoc Course Code: HREQ 1720 John Stuart Mill was known as a political economist, British philosopher and influential contributor to social and political theory. J.S. Mill was famous for his writing on individual liberty and utilitarianism (). He believed individual liberty is essential in evolving society as well as unleashing the truth (). Mills ideas stretched to governing every aspect of human liberty promoting change, innovation, and the development of societies. His greatest concern was that human beings will form into a “collective norm” where human innovation would not exist; thus, Mill created unique conditions in which his concepts of individual liberty may flourish. Although his notions became problematic he was still able to clarify the benefits that came with individual liberty. J.S. Mill clearly illustrated the significance of individual liberty, while interlinking the cultural effects on individual liberty. Mainly, J.S. Mill emphasis the abolishment of tyranny whether politically or socially while promoting a simplistic yet effective view on societal growth and individual liberty. Mill created a view that attempt to create utilitarianism in a society that seemed too governed by limited scope. John Stuart Mill solidified the concept on individual liberty by developing the harm principle which argued that individuals......

General Mills

...In 1989, the General Mills management team became aware of expansion opportunities in today’s environment of globalization. The stagnation in the cereal market in the United States required the company to expand into new global markets. The philosophy of diversification had for the most part been a success resulting in the expansion into five unrelated industrial areas. Historically the companies’ efforts to branch into some areas outside the food area are of concern. These unrelated areas of growth have been unsuccessful. The resulting financial losses were an impetus of anxiety and concern to the shareholders and brought forth Wall Street skepticism. It is my opinion that the strategic planning process is flawed. Corporate strategy is and must be the overall managerial game plan for a diversified company; it extends companywide, an umbrella over all a diversified company’s group of business. The crafting of corporate strategy for a diversified company involves four kinds of initiatives and it is evident that these initiatives are successful in related industries since these market related acquisitions have resulted in a net profit increase. Management must be aware that the overall responsibility of corporate strategy is the responsibility of all corporate managers. Senior corporate executives normally have lead responsibility for devising corporate strategy and for choosing among whatever recommended actions bubble up from lower level managers. Key unit heads may also......
