3. PRODUCT INTRODUCTION
The proposed envision of setting up an ice cream balls
In this project 6-8 mm(BB size pellets)ice cream balls
are formed from ice cream mix.
They are made colourful & containg blend of exotic
4. Product ApplicationProduct Application
This unique shape of Ice cream balls makes it easy and
quick to serve like Popcorns.
It can be served in pre formed paper or thermocol
disposable cups or plastic containers, to maximize its
sales at various sites.
It also makes it much cleaner than "ordinary" ice cream.
It is mainly consumed more in cities.
However, occasionally, particularly in marriages,
meetings and social gatherings, it is being used even in
villages and towns.
5. Ice Cream Ball is manufactured using cryogenic techniques.
Cryogenics process uses liquid Nitrogen to
instantaneously freeze Ice Cream Balls, to a temperature of
-187 ˚C (-304˚ F.).
This rapid freezing process enables to "lock in" the flavour.
Special storage freezers are required to guarantee the
highest flavour quality.
Since, this ice cream is stored at - 40 degree Celsius, no
bacteria can survive.
There is only one technology supplier in Mumbai offering
technology for this product.
6. MARKET & GROWTH DRIVERS
The ice-cream business in India was approx. INR 2000
Crore in the year 2009-10 and out of this, the per capita
consumption is the highest in Gujarat.
It will carve its niche in the market based on the market
response in established markets like USA, Japan and
Due to its wider reach the product will also fetch higher
unit value than other Ice cream products.
In 2009, purchase of sweet and Ice Cream by Indian
consumers was valued at INR 12 billion of which West
India took the lead with 4.5 billion followed by North India
with a purchase of 3.9 billion.
7. Growth Drivers
Per capita consumption of ice-creams in India is approx.
300 ml per annum, while the average global per capita
consumption is 2.3 litres.
With the lowest per capita consumption of Ice cream in the
world, India leaves ample scope for Ice cream products.
There will be 9 to 12 % growth in the current market due to
increased population, fast changing life style & increased
percentage of youths.
Ice cream finds round the year market as widely accepted
dessert and is consumed by all class of people.
8. LOCATION-Why Gujarat?LOCATION-Why Gujarat?
Gujarat consumes 60 per cent of the total production of ice-
cream in the country.
Easy Availability of the main raw material – Liquid Milk – Gujarat
is the second largest milk producer and processor state in India.
Easy Availability of other raw materials like sugar, Fruits & dry
fruits and food colours.
Gujarat is having ready availability of technical manpower.
Well developed transport infrastructure like road, rail and air
This will be supplemented by cold chain.
9. Suggested LocationSuggested Location
The preferred location can be, North, Central and Saurastra
region in Gujarat as major Dairy farming activities are conducted
in this area and also consuming market is available all over state.
Proposed location can be in the district of Mehsana, Patan,
Banaskantha, Sabarkantha, Kheda,Anand,Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot
The proposed project will have cumulative implementation
period of 10 – 12 months of which 5 to 6 months would entail
obtaining the obligatory clearances from various authorities.

The unit would require basic utilities like water, electric
power, liquid Nitrogen for Cryo cooling in IFT plant
manufacturing Ice cream balls and fuel for steam
generation boiler. The estimated requirement is 140 HP
power and 2 MTPD LDO/ HSD as fuel for steam boiler
Estimated Man power required:-
The proposed unit would require 40 persons and this
will include 4 managerial level people, 4 Supervisors, 8
plant operators, 4 office assistant cum account staff
and 16 unskilled workers and 4 security staff.
13. Clearance Required
No license / clearance is required for setting up of a Ice cream
plant by medium and large scale company. However, being a
medium scale unit it will require filing IEM (Industrial
Entrepreneur’s Memorandum) with Secretariat of Industrial
Approvals, Ministry of Industries, and New Delhi.
The unit will also have registration with state Foods and drugs
administration and will approach state nodal agency GAIC
(Gujarat Agro Industries Corporation) for availing incentives
under Ministry ofFood Processing Industries, Government of
