India is the largest producer and consumer of spices with a production of around 36.68 lakh tones. India is also the largest producer of chilli in world contributing 25% of the total world production. Indian spices are of the finest quality. Today the demand for it has considerably increased from all the countries. The project aims at production of ground spices especially chilli in consumer packs. The project mainly would involve production of chilli powder, tamarind powder, Jeera powder, Dhania powder and mix spice powder. ABOUT THE PRODUCT Powdered spices are convenient to use and also saves time and energy for preparing different delicious dishes. Besides their everyday use in households, spices are used in significant quantities in processed foods such as pickles and sauces. It is also very much useful particularly for the working couples, bachelors, hostels, hotels, restaurants, hospital and different camps of defense personnel spreading throughout the country. MARKET POTENTIAL Spices are integral part of Indian food (India has come to be known as land of spices) both as a component of daily food items as well as part of pickles, sauces & chutneys etc.. With changing of life style and especially with changes of food habits and increase of income level, the use of powdered spices has increased. Of late, the market for ready mix of spices has grown significantly. Export market for Indian spices is also growing- it was Rs. 2025 crore during 2000-01.Thus the market is huge with potential for quality producer. Numbers of brands have appeared in the market such as Sona, MDH, Ashok Masala, Sunrise etc. besides these, some of local brand are also there in the market. In addition there are numbers of small units producing powdered spices, both in loose as well as packet formed. The consumption of spices in a household of five members, in the north eastern region is estimated at 100 gm. per person per month i.e. 6.0 kg per household per year. Of this share of, powdered spice may be taken at 50% i.e. 3.0 kg per household per year. In north eastern states powdered spices are used mainly in urban and semi urban areas and it may be conservatively assumed that 70% of the urban population uses powdered spices. SUGGESTED CAPACITY To assessing the proposed plant capacity due consideration is given on availability of raw materials, availability of electricity and market. The annual production of 50 tonne is suggested, the production and product-mix at different capacity utilization per annum will be as follows: 2nd yr. onwards Item Installed 1st yr. production production @90% Capacity @80% (TPA) Turmeric powder 20 16 18 Chilli powder 10 8 9 Jeera powder 5 4 5 Dhania Powder 5 4 5 10 8 9 Mix Powder (dhania, chilly, pepper, bay leaf & curry leaf etc.) Total 50 40 46 Basis:No. of working days No. of shifts One shift Daily Production
