Products

a. Refined Vegetable Oils  - It is a cheaper and healthy substitute to Expeller oils. Basically Refined oils is crude Solvent Extracted oil which is refined, bleached and deodorized and hence, odourless, colourless, flavourless and hygienically filtered and packed.  Now a days consumers prefer this product.

Two processes have been developed for the refining of edible oils i.e. physical and chemical refining; the decision which process to use depends on the types and qualities of the crude oil to be processed . The names physical and chemical refining come from the process technology used to remove the Free Fatty Acids (FFA) that are responsible for the oil acidity. Physical refining is a process making use of the lower boiling point of the FFA compared to the boiling point of the triglyceride oil. In chemical or alkaline refining, an alkali is used to neutralise the FFA.

b. By-products Acid Oil / Fatty Acid  - By products like acid oils and fatty acid industrial oils mostly are used for making washing bar soaps.


Animal Feed Division

This project functions towards backward integration as major portion of de-oiled cake produced in its Refinery would be consumed for its Animal Feed Unit. Hygienically prepared and packed Cattle Feed in pellets form is being produced in this plant with modern technology and skill. This plant has a capacity of 150MT production per day. This unit, as presently structured, is poised to produce a variety of Animal Feeds. The Company has installed the most modern plant with computerized controls.
