Is Ginger Garlic Paste Manufacturing Business Profitable?
The cooking-paste market in India is estimated to be Rs 55 -70 crore and is growing at 30 percent every year. The reason for the growth of the cooking paste segment is that more and more working professionals are pressed for time and not just housewives.
Basically, you can produce ginger-garlic paste on a small-scale basis. Generally, the packing comes as 50 gms and 100 gms packets. The market is widespread, especially in rural areas. Generally, all households consume this item widely. In urban areas, the demand for ginger garlic paste is very good and can be supplied on a commercial scale in bulk.
Ginger Garlic Paste Manufacturing Business Plan
1. License & Registration
In starting ginger garlic paste manufacturing, you will need to obtain different types of licenses and permission from Government Authorities.
- Trade license from local Municipal authority.
- Company Registration with ROC
- ‘Consent to Establish’ and ‘Consent to Operate’ from Pollution Control Board.
- FSSAI license from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.
- GST Registration
Generally, you must obtain these registrations and licenses in starting ginger garlic paste production. However, you must check with the state government authority for any other compliance if needed.
2. Arrange Funds
As with any manufacturing industry, finance is a crucial factor here also. Preparing a project report is a must if you want to apply to a bank or financial institution for finance. 20% to 25% owner’s contribution is a must in the case of a project loan. Apart from that, you can apply for fixed capital and working capital loans from banks.
Also, do not forget to apply for a credit card to meet small day-to-day business expenses.
3. Ginger Garlic Paste Production Unit Setup & Machinery
As you are initiating a food processing industry selecting the right location and building a proper space for production activity is important. You will get a specific idea about the area required for the entire activity from the project report. The floor plan layout mentions the specific space for raw material storage, production activity, packaging activity, finished goods storage, and administrative work.
You can establish a ginger garlic paste unit in two ways. One is the semi-automatic basis and another is the fully automatic basis. The fully automatic unit will definitely give you uniform production with desired output and with minimum labor involvement. According to the market demand and marketing policy, you must determine whether you will go for a fully automatic option or for a semi-automatic option. The major list of machinery is as follows:
- Water Jet Washer
- Skin Peeling Machine
- Fruit Mill / Crusher
- Pulping Machine
- Stainless Steel Tank
- Packing Machine
- Sealing Machine
- Weighing Machine
- Carton Packing Machine
4. Raw Material For Ginger Garlic Paste Production
Major raw materials are ginger and garlic. Other required raw materials are preservatives and packaging consumables. Ginger garlic paste packaging generally comes in two types. One is in pouch packing and another is the container. You must also procure outer packaging consumables.
5. Ginger Garlic Paste Production Process
First of all, you have to procure ginger and garlic from the farm. Then, wash them with water jet pressure to clean up any foreign material. Additionally, remove the skin of the ginger and garlic with a skin-peeling machine.
Then put the product in the fruit mill/crusher machine. Put the output of the fruit mill machine into the pulper machine to further get the fine paste. Finally, put the output in the stainless steel tank for mixing the preservative. Then, you have to transfer the product to the pouch packing machine for packing in a customized denomination.
The manufacturing process flowchart is mentioned below;
Sourcing → Cleaning → De-Skinning → Crushing → Pulping → Adding Preservative → Packing
The quality of ginger-garlic pastes highly depends on the quality of raw ginger and garlic. Sourcing high-quality raw materials is the major aspect of getting high-quality ginger garlic paste as a finished product.
