Project Summary Executive Summary Rice Milling is an important activity in rural areas both for self sustenance as well as source of subsidiary income to small farmers & agricultural laborers. The bye product i.e. . rice-husk can be also used for producing rice-bran oil if the volume is large as well as for domestic fuel. Rice Milling can be also undertaken on commercial basis for producing rice from paddy & sell it on a profit.

the market for rice can be broadly categorized into three major groups. The price of broken rice is almost equivalent to the wheat prices. includes middle and upper income households in the urban areas with monthly income of BDT 5000-10. This segment purchases good quality rice (polished rice as well as semi-polished rice) Upper income group includes the upper income segment of the society. Middle income group. The hotels and restaurants also purchase polished and semi polished rice for their different dishes. Lower income group.Marketing Aspects MARKET POTENTIAL According to buying power of the rice consumers.000. . This segment is the major market of broken rice and Irri rice.000 per month. includes people with income level of less than BDT 3. The majority of this segment is looking for purchasing cheap rice. they prefer to buy high quality branded rice.

Hulling. the by-products come out in mixed or separated form. has successfully developed the technical know-how.Products Technical Aspects Applications What come out during milling operation are husk. Dhaka. Compliance under the BSTI Act is compulsory. The process includes Cleaning. Wet soft grains are powered and very dry brittle grains would break. Availability of technical know-how and Compliances BITAC. who offer the best rice milling solutions till date. Blending & Packaging (Most varieties of rice requires boiling. bran and the broken rice. . The rice is manufactured using German technology acquired from Buhler group. Depending upon the type of rice mill. milled rice or edible portion. Manufacturing Process Quality rice from BITAC Hi-Tech Modern Rice Mill undergoes 8 production processes before hitting the shop floor. The Quality Assurance between each process ensures that only the finest quality of rice reaches the middlemen who in turn offer the same to the consumers. Milling is usually done when paddy is dry (around 14% moisture content). Optical Sorting. Whitening & Polishing. cooling & drying along with 8 processes mentioned earlier).

Husk Aspiration: Separating the husk from brown rice/ unhusked paddy. Paddy Separation: Separating the unhusked paddy from brown rice. It improves the milling recovery percent during dishelming and polishing / whitening operation Husking: Removing husk from paddy. Whitening: Removing all or part of the bran layer and germ from brown rice Polishing: Improving the appearance of milled rice by removing the remaining bran particles and by polishing the exterior of the milled kernel. as required by the customer Weighing and bagging: Preparing the milled rice for transport to the Customer .Technical Aspects Modern rice milling processes consist of: Pre Cleaning: Removing all impurities and unfilled grains from paddy De-stoning: Separating small stones from paddy Parboiling (Optional): Helps in improving the nutritional quality by gelatinization of starch inside the rice grain. Length Grading: Separating small and large broken from head rice Blending: Mixing head rice with predetermined amount of broken.
