/ IMAGE 3- MANGO PULP
Mango Pulp is prepared from selected varieties of Fresh Mango Fruit. Fully matured Mangoes are harvested, quickly transported to the fruit processing plant, inspected and washed. Selected high quality fruits go to the controlled ripening chambers; Fully Ripened Mango fruits are then washed, blanched, pulped, deseeded, centrifuged, homogenized, concentrated when required, thermally processed and aseptically filled maintaining sterility. The preparation process includes cutting, de-stoning, refining and packing. In case of aseptic product the pulp is sterilized and packed in aseptic bags. The refined pulp is also packed in cans, hermetically sealed and retorted. Frozen pulp is pasteurized and deep-frozen in plate freezers. The process ensures that the natural flavour and aroma of the fruit is retained in the final product.

The fruit and vegetable processing industry in India is highly decentralized having wide capacities. The diverse agro- climatic zones make it possible to grow almost all varieties of fresh fruits and green vegetables in India. India is the second largest producer of fresh vegetables in the world (ranks next to China) and accounts for about 15% of the world’s production of vegetables. Since liberalization and withdrawal of excise duty on fruit and vegetable products there has been significant rise in the growth rate of the industry Out of 370 million tons of fruit production in the world, India accounts for 30 million tons.
/ IMAGE 5- PULSES
Pulses are one of the important food crops globally due to higher protein content. Pulses are an important group of crops in India, which is also responsible for yielding large financial gains by amounting for a large part of the exports. Pulses are the major sources of protein in the diet. Of all categories of people pulses form an integral part of the Indian diet, providing much needed protein to the carbohydrate rich diet. India is the largest producer of pulses in the world . Pulses are 20 to 25 per cent protein by weight which is double the protein content of wheat and three times that of rice.

/ IMAGE 9- COCOA PRODUCTS
Cocoa is a commercial plantation crop. The seeds of cocoa fruit, yield flavored cocoa powder on fermentation. Cocoa is hardly grown as a mono crop. Its imminent capacity to share the alley spaces of tall growing Coconut and Arecanut palms and its combining ability with the microclimatic conditions available in such perennial gardens helps its cultivation in utilizing such areas without exacting for an independent growing climate of its own. In any groves of tall growing palms where 40-50% sunlight penetration is possible, cocoa stands first to absorb such solar energy, remaining symbiotic to the main crop and generating additional income as well, besides helping the amelioration of the soil conditions making beneficial not only for its own growth but also for the benefit of the main crop under which it takes its shelter.

India has increased it’s share in the cereal and cereal preparation products in the international market. The present invention provides a method for preparing cereal foods which can be cooked readily and in a very short period of time. Swelled cereal particles are partially dehydrated to a water content of 8-25% by weight and are thereafter fried for a short period of time. Immediately and before cooling, oil is removed from the fried particles. Yeast bread is made essentially from flour, water and yeast in the presence of heat.
