Consultancy services to set up
Ice Cream Manufacturing Unit in India
(capacity: 500 liter per day to 10000 liter per day)
Introduction: Prevention of Food Adulteration (PFA) Rules, 1955 define ice cream as “a frozen product that contains not less than 10% milk fat, 3.5% protein, 36.0% total solids, and 0.5% permitted stabilizer and emulsifier.” Indian ice cream industry is currently estimated to be worth INR 20,000 million, growing at a rate of approximately 12%. Besides selling ice cream through kiosks, parlors and push carts, a significant part of the revenue comes from party, event and corporate sales.
Ice Cream Science: There are three categories of ingredients in the ice cream mix: dairy, sweeteners, and additives. Milk, cream, and non-fat milk solids make up the dairy portion of ice cream. Sucrose is used to sweeten the mix, and stabilizers and emulsifiers are added to give the ice cream the desired body and mouth feel. Also present in finished ice cream is air. Standard ice cream contains an equal volume of mix and air.
Production line equipments: The manufacturing process of the ice cream facility is broken down into 7 steps: raw material reception & storage, base mixing & standardization, homogenization & pasteurization, aging, flavor addition & continuous freezing, packaging, and finally hardening.
Relevant production line equipments of prescribed standards cost around INR 0.6-0.8 million for capacity 500 liter per day. Capacity can go up to 10000 liter per day where cost of relevant production line equipments could cost around INR 8 million.
In addition to main production line equipment you need following utilities:
Refrigeration: An optimized ammonia refrigeration unit has to be designed to utilize three temperatures -45.6 °C for the hardener system, -40.0 °C for the continuous freezer system, and -34.7 °C for and the cold storage room.
Cold Storage: Warehouse should be able to hold 2-3 months of production. Its capacity should be optimized according to market demand and inventory needs.
CIP system and wastewater treatment plant: Wastewater from the facility is captured and treated to a purity such that it can once again be used in this process.
Steam generation: Low-pressure steam will be used for pasteurization, jacketed heating of the mixing equipment, and to heat water for equipment cleaning.
How we could serve you? New entrepreneurs should sensibly decide the operating capacity to start with. Capacity of 1000 liter per day is viable for startups and can be sanction-able from banks. We can avail subsidy @ 25% from MOFPI, New Delhi.

In milk processing plant we can either sell packaged milk or produce various milk products e.g. Yoghurt, Cheese, Flavored Milk, etc. We can deliver our consultancy services to setup small scale Mozzarella Cheese and Bakery also.
