2 INDUSTRY PROFILE

RICE MILL INDUSTRY

India is an important centre of rice cultivation. The rice harvesting area in India is the worlds largest.
The two major rice varieties grown worldwide today are Orissa Sadiva, Japonica. According to
research studies, they owe their origin to two independent events of domestication thousands of years
ago.

Rice is the staple food for almost 65% of the population in India. Paddy in its raw form cannot be
consumed by human beings. It needs to be suitably processed for obtaining rice. Rice milling is the
process which helps in removal of hulls and barns from paddy grains to produce polished rice. Rice
forms the basic primary processed for obtaining various secondary and tertiary products. The basic
rice milling process consists of the following process.

Rice Milling Process

Pre cleaning: Removing all impurities and unfilled grains from paddy.

De-stoning: Separating small stones from paddy.

Parboiling (optional): Helps in improving the nutritional quality by gelatinization of starch inside
the rice grain. It improves the milling recovery percent during de shelling and polishing/whitening
operation.

Husking: Removing husk from paddy.

Husk Aspiration: separating the husk from brown rice/un husked paddy.

Paddy separation: separating the un husked paddy from brown rice.

Whitening: removing all or part of the bran layer and germ from brown rice.

Polishing: improving the appearance of milled rice by removing the remaining bran particles and by
polishing the exterior of the milled kernel.

Length grading: separating small and large broken from head rice.

exist in India in vedic period. He estimated that, even today 200000 varieties of rice are exist in India
which in deeded an exceptionally high number. This means even if a person eats a new rice variety
every day a year he have to live for 100 years without reusing. The harvesting area of rice in India is
the worlds largest about 600 improved varieties of India rice have been released for cultivation since
1965.

about 2/3rd of the work force in the country.

Indias is the worlds second largest rice producer, followed by china. The demand for rice in India is
projected at 128 million tons for the year 2012 and will require a population 3000 kg per hector,
significantly greater than the present average yield of 1930 kg/hector. Government of India is
targeting to achieve production of 129 million tons of rice by 2012-2013 with the growth rate of
3.7% along with other food grains.

more than Rs.25, 500 crore per annum. It processes about 85 million tonnes of paddy per year and
provides staple food grain and other valuable products required by over 60% of the population.
Paddy grain is milled either in raw condition or after par-boiling, mostly by single hullers of which
over 82,000 are registered in the country. Apart from it there are also a large number of unregistered
single hulling units in the country. A good number (60%) of these are also linked with par-boiling
units and sun drying yards. Most of the tiny hullers of about 250-300 kg/hr capacities are employed
for customs milling of paddy. Apart from it double hulling units number over 2,600 units, under run
disc sellers cum cone polishers numbering 5,000 units and rubber roll sellers cum friction polishers

LITERATURE REVIEW

4.1 THEORETICAL BACKGROUND

The caterpillar does all the work but the butterfly gets all the publicity

George Carlin

Advertising is a form of communication used to influence individuals to


purchase products or services or support political candidates or ideas. Frequently it communicates a
message that includes the name of the product or service and how that product or service could
potentially benefit the consumer. Advertising often attempts to persuade potential customers to

18
purchase or to consume a particular brand of product or services. Modern advertising developed with
the rise of mass production in the late 19 th and early 20th centuries. Commercial advertisers often seek
to generate increased consumption of their products or services through branding, which involves the
repetition of an image or product name in an effort to associate related qualities with the brand in the
minds of consumers.

4.2 MEANING AND DEFINITIONS OF ADVERTISING

Advertising is nothing but a paid from of non personal presentation or


promotion of ideas, goods or services by an identified sponsor with a view to disseminate
information concerning an idea, product or service. The message which is presented or disseminated
is called advertisement. In the preset day marketing activities hardly is there any business in the
modern world which does not advertise. However, the form of advertisement differs from business to
business.

Advertisement has been defined differently by different persons; A few definitions are
being reproduced below:

According to wood Advertising is causing to know to remember, to do.

According to wheeler, Advertising is any form of paid non- personal presentation of ideas,
goods or services for the purpose of inducting people to buy.

According to Richard Buskirk, Advertising is a paid non- personal presentation of ideas,


goods or services by an identified sponsor.

characteristics of the product to the prospective customers with a view to sell the product or
increase the scales volume.

The main features of advertise are as under:

earlier and the advertisements prepare a ground for that new product.

Baring New Entrants

From the advertisers point of view, a strongly built image through long advertising helps to
keep new entrants away. The advertisement builds up a certain monopoly are for the product in
which new entrants find it difficult to enter.
