Place: Coimbatore Date:



Thanks to LORD ALMIGHTY who kept me strong with his blessings throughout this organizational study. I would like to express my gratitude to Prof. Samuel Joseph, Director of Karunya University Business School for his maximum support. I am obliged to the manager and staff of My food roller flour Factory Pvt. Ltd for their excellent help and guiding throughout the study. I profoundly express my indelible indebtedness to Dr. Joji Chandran who through his immense knowledge has greatly guided me to successfully complete this study. Finally I would like to show my immense pleasure and gratitude to my parents and all others who wanted me to complete this project successfully.





















My Food Roller Flour Factory is located just three kilometers away from the Mylapra town, Pathanamthitta District. The unit is established with the financial assistance of NCDC (National Cooperative Development Cooperation). The project cost approved by NCDC and government of Kerala is 384.28 Lakhs. Now the factory is registered as a company with the name “My Food Roller Flour Factory Private Limited” promoted by Mylapra Service Cooperative bank having 96% shares. Company markets their products in the name of ‘AMRUTHA’. The main products manufactured here are Maida, Atta, Sooji, Bran etcetera. Company started its commercial production on 22nd December 2003.

The essential ingredient needed for production is wheat. Wheat is supplied mainly from northern states like Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bihar and Madhya Pradesh. M y food roller flour factory has a depot in Che nkotta, Tamil Nadu. The unit is the having SSI (Small Scale Industry) registration by Government of Kerala. This unit is the only one establishment in the co-operative sector in the country at present. The company has distributors in all districts of Kerala.

The wheat products which are generally used for the human consumption are Maida, Atta and Sooji (Rava). Bran is used commonly as cattle and poultry feed. In olden days, wheat products were made by crushing wheat using stone-made wheat crushers. These crushers were also known as Chakkies. In this  process, only one kind of product were usually produced which is the whole meal Atta. Often the Atta  produced by chakkies contains mixtures of dirt, cockles, iron particles, bugs or other insect etcetera which makes it unhygienic for human consumption. Also large quantities were difficult to manufacture in these chakkies as it took lots of time to do so.

A modern flour mill is completely automatic and it processes wheat after washing and dusting. Major part of these processes are done by the machines itself and only a small role are played by labour force.

There are strong evidences stating wheat is really helpful in reducing the chances of Coronary Heart Diseases. Today whole wheat is increasingly consumed by heart patients in their daily menu to avoid the chances of any serious heart diseases. It is recognized as a key source of heart healthy promoting nutrients.

The whole wheat is composed of two parts namely bran and endosperm. Bran is a rich source of fibre, vitamins and minerals like the endosperm but not good to be consumed by human beings. Since Bran are used as cattle feed. Bran is the outer layer part of the wheat while endosperm is the inner part which is good enough to be consumed by humans.

Kerala got the habit of consuming wheat only before a hundred years. The Explorers from China and the old traders from Northern India made Kerala and its natives to consume wheat. Now over hundreds of sweets and other eatables are made in Kerala using wheat starting from the usual chapatti and porotta to  buns and breads.

Being a consumer state, Kerala imports tons of wheat every year from other states in India to keep the state and its natives healthy. Kerala was mainly a rice consuming state until late fifties. However, food habits have changed fast due to economic and other compulsions.

Globalization also plays a giant role in the rapid consumption and demand for wheat and its products in Kerala. Now there are no Households, hotels or bakeries who consume or produce a single food item made with Wheat daily in Kerala. The taste and nutrient fact of wheat, increasing price, demand and scarce of rice etcetera brought the Wheat into the regular food menu of Keralites.

This internship program at MY FOOD ROLLER FLOUR FACTORY LIMITED, Mylapra was really helpful for me to generate interest in my career, to create a network of contacts, to have an excellent industry exposure and to have a meaningful work experience. Each day being in the company improved my overall experience in behaving well within the organization and I witnessed how well senior and

experienced managers manage the subordinates to achieve the organizational as well as personal goal in the most effective and efficient manner.

The sample size was very few in view of customer studies. Time was limited Lack of awareness by people towards the product.


INDUSTRY PROFILE It is considered as the cultivation of wheat as for agricultural purposes and trade were began before 5000 B.C during the Neolithic Period in the Levant region of Near East. Wheat has only a history of 7000 years in India. China, one of the largest wheat producers in the world started cultivating the same only after a millennium. There is a Chinese folklore behind the cultivation of Wheat in China. Years before, Ancient China was affected by flood which caused millions of deaths and d amages to their crops. The whole civilization and its population suffered without having enough food grains to eat. On e day farmers found a dog and a bull wandering through the fields with two different types of grains tied to their tail. Those grains were Wheat and Rice which they cultivated and swept off the poverty in the nation. Wheat is one of the most consumed food grains in India. Over million tons of wheat are produced and consumed every year by Indians. Atta, Maida, Sooji etcetera are few of the different types flours which can be produced out of wheat. Since wheat and the other flours made out of it are largely consumed in India millions of tons of wheat are imported ever y year to meet the domestic needs of the nation. In south India, these flours are highly consumed by households, bakeries and hotels to make Chapatti, porotta,  puffs, breads, buns etcetera which are part of their daily food menu. To meet the demands of the general  public, there are lots of factories who provide wheat flours on large scale in India. In Kerala, there are lots of market players in this segment which includes domestic companies like  Nirapara, Double horse, Amrutha, Aashirvaad etcetera and foreign player like Pillsbury. They all play tight competition within the market and has lots of satisfied customers who are very loyal to their respective brand. Flour Milling is a mechanical manufacturing process of wheat through various Comprehensive stages of washing, grinding, separation etc. White flour was produced in Hungary and Germany in the 18th century. The flour became very popular as when it was exported all over Europe. After its first exportation the demand got increased up to ten times. These white flours were manufactured by arranging a number of stone mills to form a series of grinding passages which was very costly than the present method to extract the flour. They used stones, pebbles and mortars to grind and separate the wheat from its tough fibrous

skin which leaves the endosperm of the wheat which can be used to produce this flour. This method was independently developed in a number of areas around the world. The modern mills are fully automated and all parts of the process are easily changed to computer con trol. Improvements in mill’s output capabilities and transportation together with seasonal decline in the de mand for the product lead to a steady reduction of the number of mills in operation in Kerala and India. In modern flour mills, mill stones are replaced by steel rollers. The old style of using reel sifters have  been replaced by modern plain sifters. The design and its efficiency has improved to a new level and many new accessories are added to the milling system to improve the quality of wheat flours produced. The Process of Flour production are: 

Wheat Cleaning Before milling starts, the wheat is tested for protein and quality. On the basis of the quality, it will  be graded into various categories. It is then cleaned to remove impurities such as stones, dust, insects and weed seeds. The determined number of grades are then blended together to produce the desired type of flour. Soft low Protein Wheat is most suitable for biscuit flour, white flour is usually made from harder high protein wheat.

Wheat Conditioning Water is added to the wheat blend in the next process known as conditioning or tempering. The amount of water added is usually between 4-6% depending on the initial moisture content of the grain and the type of wheat being milled. The wheat is then allowed to lay in the conditioning bins for between 10-20 hours. The bran layers are then toughened b y the addition of water, minimizing shattering during milling and the Endosperms is made friable requiring less power to be ground into flour.

Flour Milling The separation of the endosperm material from the bran layer of the kernel and the gradual reduction in size of the endosperm particles is achieved by a complex combination of grinding rolls (break and reduction rolls), sifters, purifiers and other equipment. The tempered wheat is fed into roller mills which holds two steel cylindrical rolls with longitudinal groove cut into their surfaces. As wheat passes between the rolls which rotate between each other at different speed, the

 bran is gripped by the slower rolls. The friable endosperm is torn away into granular cheeks or fine  powder by the overtaking grooves on the faster rolls. The purpose of the break system is to break open the wheat grains to release semolina particles and leave bran in the largest particle size  possible, thus minimizing bran contamination in the semolina. The granular stocks produced are  predominantly semolina interspersed with bran particles, although undesirably, some flour is  produced at this time. The main production of fine flour comes from the latter reduction stage. To purify the mixed granular stocks of semolina and bran coming from the break system, they are  passed through the purification system. A purifier is essentially a long rectangular machine with oscillation sleeves through which a current of air is drawn. Semolina stock is conveyed along the length of sieves and shaking motions together with upward current of air causes the stock to stratify. The lighter bran figments are floated above a layer of pure semolina which gradually passes through sieves. The bran fragments passes over to the end of the sieves. The particles of purified semolina are then crushed to fine flour by the reduction system. This is comprised of roller mills filled with smooth rolls operating at slightly different speeds. Flour is removed by shifting the ground stock over the fine mesh n ylon screen. Coarse mesh separates the bran flakes. The size of any intermediate product is gradually reduced by subjecting it to repeated roll and sifting treatment. Up to eight to eleven passage may be employed, depending on the design of the  plant.

India in whole world industry India is looking to a larger wheat product of 85 million in 2015. Markfed is the largest wheat exporter in India. In 2003-2004, Markfed has exported over 2.65 million tons of wheat. They export their wheat to countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Australia, Europe, Middle East etc.

India who stands next to China in terms of population and economy growth rate, also comes next after china in terms of wheat production and consumption. Both the country has growing demands for wheat and are used wheat as a part of their daily menu.

Wheat are mainly produced in the northern part of the country and the major producing states are Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana contributing to nearly 75% of wheat production in the whole country. In the pr esent scenario, wheat plays a major role in the management of India’s food economy. Since 1998, India’s share in world wheat production hovers around 13%-15%. Wheat is sweet, cool, and rich with proteins and fibers. It helps in increasing virility, nutrition and complexion to the body fair. It is one of the staple foods used commonly in India.

The Production department is the heart of the company which works 24 hours a day to meet it production target. The manufacturing process of Amrutha products starts with the purchase of raw materials. The main raw material for the production is pure wheat itself. The main places from where the wheat is  purchased are the northern state. A team of dedicated men and women work in the sophisticated processing unit with advanced machinery. The wheat is vested for finding out quality. There are two types of wheat namely: 

Hard wheat

Soft wheat

The selected wheat are washed, processed and grained to form Atta, Maida, Rava and Bran.

Quality checking

Stringent hygienic measures are applied with regular laboratory testing. The research and development team works for quality improvement by strict measure. Ample research supports provided by its research and development team to qualitatively increase and improve upon sophisticated measures of production.

The production process consists of three sections: 

Measures taken for input material 

Purchase of wheat is decided based on the representative sample received from the seller and decision taken as per the comparative quality result with basic sample.

100 percent inspection of the purchased wheat quality as per the representative samples collected as per the sampling technique.


Wheat from the storage godown of the mill are fed into an intake hopper where it is transported by a  bucket elevator to the cleaning elevators where lighter impurities such as weeds and straw are separated from the grain flow. Another function of the cleaning separator is removal of bigger admixture smaller than grains such as sand and small weeds which are removed by sieve. Permanent magnets remove ferromagnetic admixtures from the grain and at the same time feed the bucket elevator. Then these grains are washed and cleaned properly. The waste from the washer will be collected in sump and discharged in the drainage or it can be used for other agricultural purpose. The washed grain then goes into the scourer machines where the outer hulls and beards of the grains are removed completely in the process. The above described flow can  be altered depending on the quality of wheat in storage bins for being conditioned. The total maximum tempering or conditioning period is adjusted from time to time depending on the quality of oil transported by a worm conveyor or by an elevator to the brushing machine. If needed the conditional and brushed wheat is led through the automating damper where its moisture contents are removed. The wheat is fed into the mill through a magnet for final checking of Fe rromagnetic mixtures. Sometimes the utilizable screening wastes from all cleaning machines are collected to one section of the plan sifter where they are sifted and separated. The over tail of the first group of the sieves remove  bigger impurities and even healthy grains which might have joint the waste through a defective sieve of any cleaning machine. Such part is collected and fed into the hopper at the cleaning section and cleaned again. The over tails of the second group sieve are collected directly into a worm conveyor and the bran is send separately for packing.

The wheat is crushed in the break roles are send for purifications to the purifiers in the plan sifter machines for removing and grading the stocks of the products vise Maida, Atta, Sooji by means of  purifications and sieving through plan sifters for the maximum extraction form out of it and tail product Bran will be sent to the packing section direct from sieves. Two numbers of high pressure fans will be installed foe pneumatic lifts in the milling. A part of this will be a complete aspiration for the purification by values control aspiration system. Thus you may find on the whole there are four operations in the roller flour mills i.e. clean ing or screening of wheat, grinding of wheat in various stages such as break reductions by means of roller flour mills,  purifications and sieving of products to obtain various grades of stock from the wheat crushed by plan sifters and purifiers. The final stage is packing of various products in the ground floor of the mill. The factory is using both manual and automatic methods for the purpose of packing.
