Abstract:

A study was undertaken to standardize processing protocol of traditional bhujia by incorporation with spent hen meat powder and to evaluate the economics of developed product. Four treatment combinations i.e. Treatment A (0% meat powder), Treatment B (10% meat powder), Treatment C (15% meat powder) and Treatment D (20% meat powder) were prepared to evaluate economics of the bhujias. In the cost economics, the total production cost of treatments (per 100kg) were calculated on the basis of overhead production cost and formulation cost of bhujia mix powder which was found to be Rs. 17,595.00, Rs. 26,085.00, Rs. 30,330.00 and Rs. 34,575.00 for Treatment A, B, C and D respectively. The cost of formulation for 100 kg bhujia mix powder was found highest for the Treatment D followed by Treatment C, B and A. Per day expenditure for processing of 100 kg bhujia mix powder was found to be highest in Treatment D followed by Treatment C, Treatment B and Treatment A. Maximum total net profit was found for Treatment D followed by Treatment C, Treatment B and Treatment A. Break-even point were estimated as Rs.1,95,006.00, Rs. 1,94,993.00, Rs. 1,95,012.00 and Rs.1,95,002.00 for Treatment A, B, C and D respectively. The cost benefit ratio was estimated around 30% for all the treatments. Estimating the details of economics of the developed products, it can be concluded that a viable enterprise can be established by keeping MRP per kg of bhujia as Rs. 190, Rs. 261, Rs. 283 and Rs. 304 for Treatment A, Treatment B, Treatment C and Treatment D respectively.
