Amongst processed cereal products in India, noodles have a share of about 45% in terms of output and constitute the largest segment in this sector of the processed food market. Noodles are relatively more popular in the north-eastern region where in some states they are consumed as regular breakfast item. In states like Mizoram, Meghalaya and Nagaland, noodles are popular food item. ABOUT THE PRODUCT: Noodles are more popular in north-eastern region where in some states noodles are consumed as regular breakfast item. The raw material required for making noodles are available in local market. It is widely used by school children as tiffin item, because it takes less time for preparation. MARKET POTENTIAL: The demand for noodles would be mainly from urban areas where there are working couples, and people are relatively more hard pressed for time. Besides, after the launch of Maggi, a popular product, a distant market segment which has emerged is the childrens and school, college going students market. According to a survey, the annual demand for ready-to-serve product is estimated at 4.30 lakhs tones. This works out to a per capita demand of 0.50 Kg. per year. In urban areas in the north-east, the per capita consumption should be higher. Even at the conservative level of 0.5 kg the demand for noodles in a town having population of 3 lakh is estimated at 150 tonnes per annum. The population of major towns in the region varies from about 2 lakhs to 20 lakhs. As such, the demand could range from 100 tonne to 1000 tonne per year. At present, there are a few local units manufacturing noodles and bulk of the demand is being met by leading brands like Maggi. Taking the capacity of a tiny unit at 15 to 20 tonne per year, there is scope for 4 to 5 units in a small town and more numbers of units in larger towns depending on the population. PLANT CAPACITY: A typical unit is envisaged to have a capacity of 15 tonne per year and an annual production of 10.5 tonne on the following basis: Production per day at rated capacity Capacity utilization Average daily production envisaged Working days/year Annual production : : : : : 50 Kg on single shift basis 70% 35 Kg. 300 days 10.5 tonnes.
