Clusters of mini food processing units

About Solution

Problem Statements 

- Weather-based farming resulting in a drastic price drop of crops harvested in a particular season

- Negative unit economics due to small farms and transportation costs 

- Individual farmers cannot afford modern farm equipment 

- Low access to consumers and direct markets

Solution 

Creating a cluster of micro food processing, storage and farm equipment units.

What a cluster unit can possibly have :

 - Vegetable and fruits Dehydration Units

    Vegetables and fruits dehydration is cost effective and a simple process and can increase the shelf life of food products from months upto a year keeping the nutrition value and tase intact. After dehydration, the weight of food products reduces by a factor of 60- 90 % which drastically reduces the transportation cost.

- Juice extracting units

Natural juice could be extracted from certain fruits and vegetables in concentrated form and can be directly sold to bigger processing units, saving the transportation cost, increasing the shelf life and creating a steady source of income to farmers.

- Milk Powder making Unit

To avoid spoilage of milk, milk powder making units can be installed at rural clusters so that milk can be transported easily and can be utilized in cities increasing the income and bring back the trend of keeping cattle.

What we are trying to do is develop and support micro-entrepreneurs in rural areas and ensuring their success by providing them with SOP's, latest knowledge, equipment and most important access to the markets. 

Core focus -

- Reduce wastage of farm produce

- Maximize the value of the product

- Maximize the shelf life

- Minimize transportation cost

- Explore additional avenues of increasing per capita income of farmers

- Develop self-sustainable and profitable micro units operated under a centralized unit

- Create rural entrepreneurs
