Food Colour Manufacturing Business Plan

Concentrated food colour manufacturing project is a profitable venture for new entrepreneurs. As the food industry is growing at a good pace, the demand of food colours is also expected to rise. Colouring of food can render it appealing in appearance. Food colours have been utilized since time immemorial. Besides this, colouring agents can also enhance the flavour of the food.

An important reason for adding colours to processed foods is that finished product may have different colours when made by raw material from different regions or different times. To standardize the appearance, colours are added. Food colours may be synthetic or of natural origin.

Food Colour Manufacturing Process:

The simple extraction process used for naturally derived colouring is similar to that of concentrating fruit or vegetable juice. Manufacturing methods for converting natural sources into food colouring include extraction, heating, homogenization, milling, filtration, concentration and drying.

First, raw materials are selected and thoroughly washed. Then, they are crushed or milled before course filtering or straining. Afterwards, they are fine or polish filtered, pasteurised and then concentrated.

To determine exact colours, it’s important to use colour instruments and measurement analytics such as colorimeters and spectrophotometer.

Natural food colouring can be created in both a liquid and powder form. Colour clarity can range from cloudy to clear. Additional attributes such as water soluble, water dispersible, emulsion for oil and water or water and oil, oil dispersible or oil soluble can be developed for the final natural colour, depending on the needs of the processor.
