Potato Powder Manufacturing | Small Business Project

Potato powder manufacturing project can be initiated where the principal raw material, potato is easily available. The protection of food stuffs from spoilage by moulds and bacteria is a major concern of the food technologist. It is estimated that about 25% of the potatoes, which are spoiled due to several reasons, may be saved by processing and preservation of potato powder manufacturing. The most suitable varieties of potatoes are Kufri Chipsona, Kufri Jyoti and Chandramukhi for powder processing and manufacturing.

Potatoes can be consumed in varied forms. In fact, it is only a vegetable that can easily be combined with any other food item including other vegetables, cereals, pulses, meat and poultry. Potato is one of the important tuber vegetable which is consumed throughout the year. The potato tubers vary in size, shape, colour, depth of eyes etc. which are important characteristics.

The demand is much more than the supply at present and is likely to grow with the increasing popularity of  the snack foods and other items where potato powder is used as input.  In India potato is largely cultivated. So it is a good idea to make potato powder from raw potato. That is why we have to say that potato powder manufacturing project is a good opportunity for a new start up entrepreneur with comparatively low capital investment.
