Mobile Food Processing Unit
CSIR−Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI), Mysore (A constituent laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, New Delhi) came into existence in 1950 with the great vision to pursue in-depth research and development in the areas of food science and technology.
We have designed and built the unit on Eicher Pro 3009 L chassis. The vehicle is used as a Mobile demonstration unit for tomato processing to showcase processing techniques to farmers (on-site) to encourage them to take up value addition, by converting raw materials into semi-finished or finished products. The unit consists of 3 sections – The Cabin, Kitchen/Lab, and Equipment section.
