GARLIC POWDER MANUFACTURING IN AFRICA - THE OPPORTUNITY
Garlic is nutritious and is used in traditional medicine for diarrhoea, digestive ailments, high blood pressure, and against a number of toxins and venoms (the venom of scorpions and some species of snakes). It is rich in vitamins and mineral salts.
Garlic is cultivated in many countries. Garlic powder is an important ingredient in cooking, it has long been used as a condiment.
The manufacture of garlic powder from raw bulb is a well-established business in Europe and the United States. Garlic powder is a hygienically prepared product. It is easy and convenient to use and is widely used in culinary preparations, whether vegetarian or not. It can be made anywhere but its production is paramount in garlic growing areas in order to facilitate its procurement.
Industry profile and market assessment: Garlic is traditionally used as a condiment in food preparations, serving as a flavouring in mayonnaise and ketchup, salad dressings, spaghetti stews, etc. The market for this product is widespread and a large part of restaurants and caterers use it regularly.
The use of garlic powder is increasing because it is easy to handle and is hygienic. The prospects for exports, especially to the Gulf countries and even to Europe are good. Hygienic preparation and good quality are two important factors in accessing local and international markets. A small unit with limited production capacity will also send a message that their products are homemade and meet a specific demand. The selection of the business area for marketing purposes, the best price and the quality are of the utmost importance in conquering a market.
The proposed production line includes:
- Sizing machine: Sizing consists of selecting garlic bulbs of the same size and the same weight in order to ensure a homogeneous treatment of the finished products.
- Garlic clove crushing machine
- Garlic clove peeling machine
- Garlic slicer into strips
- Filling Machine
