How Do We Calculate Biscuit Plant Output

When ever people think of putting up  a new biscuit plant  , the first question which come s in mind is the plant output or  capacity . This  is important for  design and  project  of new biscuit plant .Unit could be tons /hr or kg /hr of  production . Biscuit output  is required for  material planning and plant specifications .

There  different methods  to calculate  biscuit plant output  as mentioned below

a .  Baking time   x  with  rows x columns  in  one minute from cutter /molder  rpm. moulder and cutter have dies or cups  as per biscuit shape and size .

b.   Oven  band surface  area  x baking time of biscuit oven .( tunnel oven )
Oven length and width depends upon  the volume of biscuit to be produced 

On the basis of capacity ,  Mixers  and Packing machine  are  selected  for line  balancing

c.   Mixing  time with   batch size processed in  unit  time
d.   Number of packing machine  used to pack with  packet per minute  for calculation .

Oven capacity (lbs/hr) = R x N x L 1/C x60/T
R = rows of goods per foot of band length
N = rows of goods across the band width
L = baking chamber length in ft.
C = count of baked biscuits per lb.
T = baking time in mins.maximum baked size of the coojie

To determine N & R.
Let W = actual product width in inches
D = maximum baked size of the cookie
S = spacing from centre to centre of adjacent rows
X = clear band space at each edge
Then, W = ( N x S ) - S + D +2X
or, N = W + S - D - 2X / S and R + 12 / S
Capacities of other machinery prior to the oven can be referenced to the oven capacity

Impact of Budget 2013 On Bakeries

Indian Budget 2013-14  has been  presented by Finance minister Mr Chindabram  in parliament .    Its  time to see the impact  on these policies on  bakery industry . Over all the  budget tends to  do the balancing act of growth  as well as containing fiscal health .  With significant decision on retail sector has already being decided  earlier  where forgien retailers can now open retails unit  in multi brand products including agriculture products . Hence road blocks for retail giants like Walmart , Tesco and Carrefour has been removed with few riders to safe guard  local manufacturers . People were expecting some big ticket reforms but  nothing  come out  of this budget . Industry  performance has been lacklustre for last two quaters and GDP growth  has fallen to  5.0 % in recent studies .

 Here  are  few decisions which would have impact on bakery industry

Positives  for  bakery industry

No change in excise duty and import duty .
Rebate on income tax  for people whose salaries are in the bracket  .of 2.0- 5.0 lakh  in form of tax credit worth Rs 2000/-.

Exemption of service tax on freight charges  for goods transport agencies for essential items such as flour , jaggery ,sugar , salt ,milk  and edible oil  could  reduce the frieght cost for  large bakeries

Increased outlays on rural development  and increase in MGNREGA funds   to the rural  workers   thus  giving more money  to rural population would definitely increase sale of  bakery products in these areas .

Significant infusion of  funds   in  rural  sector . through various schemes .

Income tax relief for loans upto 25 lakhs could bring some additional money in the hand of middle class consumers .


 Non - A/c  restaurant  has now come  under service tax net . hence eating out  would become more costlier

 No cost  relief on petrol,diesel and gas

Freight  surcharge   on goods transported through railway s  could lead to some price increase on bulk ingredients.
