Critical Success Factors

There is a very large and growing market of Noodles. Urban market is captured by some national brands. But there is a good scope in semi-urban and certain rural markets as the branded products which are considered to be costly. At the same time, these markets are familiar with noodles due to constant hammering by the established brands by way of advertisements. Thus, it will not amount to concept selling. A good product with attractive packaging and affordable price has good potential. Creation of proper distribution network and product advertisement is also necessary. In other words, good quality, affordable pricing and concentration on semi-urban and upcoming rural markets are the key factors.

Raw Material

Noodles are made with the help of many ingredients with major input being wheat flour. Other materials required are corn and rice flour, protein isolates, salt, spices, edible oil, preservatives etc.


The capacity of the project is 1200 TPA, assuming the working capacity of the machinery is 8 Hrs per day for 300 working days.

Manufacturing Process:

Noodles is the term being used to designate products made from blend of flour , the major component of which is rice flour, buck wheat flour , wheat flour, and from bean , potato , mung bean and corn starch. The major manufacturing process is depend on the presence or absence of gluten. Small amounts of nutrients may be added but these do not affect the organoleptic qualities or processing properties of the material. Water is added in the extrusion step and is removed by drying , except when it is sold as fresh product. Wheat flour noodles are usually produced by sheeting and rolling , while other types are typically produced by extrusion or batter cooking methods. The raw material for Rice noodles is non-glutinous rice which is elastic and enables formation of dough that is easy for extrusion.
