Author(s):
Nagaraju M, Virendra Kumar Tiwari and Ankita Sharma
Abstract:
The main objective of this study was to determine the economic feasibility of development of finger millet and lentil extrudate in a commercial scale. To determine the economic feasibility of any start-ups, the basic assumptions and calculations are important. It was found that, in order to produce 54 lakh units of 20g pouches of ready to eat extruded snacks of finger millet-lentil in the blend ratio of 90:10 with the identified infrastructure, the break even production comes to 19.2 lakh units, BEP is 35.55%. In order to clear the total project cost, about 5-year 3 month 25 days is required. The benefit cost ratio is found to be 5.33 therefore, every one rupee invested in the project is expected to earn 5.33 rupees. This analysis helps in set up of new start-ups at commercial level for producing finger millet-lentil extruded snacks.
