This profile envisages how to start a Yoghurt Making Business generically known as cultured milk as they all derive from the action of bacteria on all or part of the Lactose to produce Lactic acid, carbon dioxide acetic acid, diacetyl, acetaldehyde and several other components that give the products the characteristic of fresh taste and smell.
This plant will be established on the premise that at least 50 litres of yoghurt will be produced per day leading to 15,600 litres per year.
Yoghurt is made through the process of fermenting milk by the addition of bacteria, stabilizers, flavours and colour. The milk may be whole full fat, semi skimmed or low fat skimmed depending on the type of yoghurt you intend to make. It is normal in commercial yoghurt production to homogenise the milk prior to its fermentation.
The major raw materials used to make yoghurt include: Milk or Milk Powder, Yoghurt Starter or Culture and Flavour.
The major Equipment needed in the making of yoghurt includes: Milk Tanks and Refrigerators.
Requirements: The total investment cost of the Project is estimated at NGN 540,000. It is expected to yield an estimated revenue of NGN 31,200,000.
Market Analysis & Projected Demand:
There is a ready market for Yoghurt among the Youths and Children who cherish the product.
