START YOUR OWN POTATO CRISP MANUFACTURING BUSINESS IN AFRICA
Start potato crisp manufacturing in Africa, to replace the imported, mass-produced brands, is now possible with the collaboration of experts in the field of fruit processing: UK-based Africa Processing.
Africa Processing provide Starter Kits for anyone willing to start manufacturing crisps in Africa. Our Starter Kits consist in detailed quotations specifying the cost and technical characteristics of the necessary equipment for the implementation of your project as well as a description of the manufacturing process.
As part of our Starter Kit for the manufacture of potato crisps, we also send you the contact details of the machine manufacturers, so you can buy the equipment directly from them without any intermediation cost. You will also receive two documents that will help you draft your regional market study and business plans and that can be presented to raise funds with banks and local administrations.
POTATO CRISP MANUFACTURING IN AFRICA - THE OPPORTUNITY
Potato crisps are thin vegetable slices fried in oil to make them crunchy. The evolution of the agro-food industry in recent decades clearly shows that the snack market is only growing and benefiting from the increase in people's incomes. The consumption of crisps is therefore growing, in line with the emergence of the middle classes in Africa.
Crisps are not a seasonal product, so the market is secure throughout the year. Due to the shortage of processing and packaging units in many countries, the local market needs for potato chips are often met by imports. This situation represents an opportunity for the creation of a profitable crisps manufacturing unit, it will also make it possible to employ local labour, thus contributing at the national level to the reduction of unemployment.
For this project the investment is low and the profitability of the business is good.
We help you set up a manufacturing line that will allow you to control the entire potato chip manufacturing process, from washing to packaging. This semi-automatic line is available in two options with production outputs of 50 kg/hour or 100 kg/hour without additives with various shapes and the seasoning of your choice.
