Can you please let me know why this code is not listing Custom Post Types?

$loop = new WP_Query(
                'post_type' => 'product',
                'tax_query' => array(
                        'taxonomy' => 'genre',
                        'field' => 'name',
                        'terms' => 'ne',
                        'order' => 'ASC',
                'posts_per_page' => 10
if ( $loop->have_posts() ) :
echo '<ul>';
 while ( $loop->have_posts()) : $loop->the_post();
 $custom = get_post_custom($post->ID);
 echo '<li>'.the_title().'</li>';
echo '</ul>';

If you want to sort the custom post type 'product' by title, please try:

 array( 'post_type'       => 'product',
        'posts_per_page'  => 10, 
        'orderby'         => 'title',
        'order'           => 'ASC',
        'tax_query' => array(
             array( 'taxonomy' => 'genre',
                   'field'     => 'slug',
                   'terms'     => 'ne',

where 'field' can in general be either 'id' or 'slug' (ref). You can check the available orderby input parameters here.
