There are 812 roller flour mills in our country producing approximate 25 million tonnes, of milled cereal products worth Rs. 1200 crores. Flour Mills can be installed with minimum capacity of 30 TPD of raw material crushing capacity per day to maximum 1000 TPD. The capacity suggested in this report is for mini flour mill i.e. 30 tonnes of raw material crushing capacity per day. As per CII mckinsey survey it is estimated that by 2005 the market for branded Atta has grown to Rs. 15000 crore. B. MARKET POTENTIAL.

Whole wheat flour is used in making Chapaties, Puries, Parotha and other roasted cereal based products. Wheat flour or Maida is a basic raw material for making Bread, Biscuits Cakes and other bakery products. Sooji / Rava is used in many sweetmeat products. Bran separated on milling is used as cattle feed. The products sold under brand names are very few. The concept for branded cereal flour products is now increasing. The big giants like Hindustan Lever, NEPC Agro, Nirma etc. have jumped in to this lucrative industry.

TECHNICAL ASPECTS. Production Details & Process of Manufacture Wheat is first cleaned thoroughly to remove dust, stone and other foreign matters clean wheat is tempered before grinding by treating with water so that the bran is separated from the endosperm. The tempered wheat is crushed between corrugated rollers (Break rolls). The first break rolls are set relatively far apart to grind the wheat lightly, while successive break yield finer and finer products. The first break is separated by sieving or bolting in to very fine particles (flour), intermediate particles (middlings) and coarse particles (stock). The stock is then sent to second break rolls. This process may continue through 5 to 6 breaks. The stock contains pieces of endosperm and bran and the stock from the last break is principally bran. The middlings contain endosperm, bran and germ which are then successively classified and some of the bran removed are sent to reduction...
