Abstract:

Beside nutritive value and acceptability, cost is very important criterion that determines the marketability of any milk and milk-based products. Therefore, in the present study, the cost of production of Ready to Cook Milk Based Snack (RTCMBS) with incorporation of starchy flours and extenders in comparisons with those of control was calculated. To produce quality products scientifically and hygienically, a mini milk processing plant is necessary for commercialization of RTCMBS ‘Milk Crisp’. Efficient costing system must generate information which can help to formulate realistic pricing of products. Cost analysis is also helpful to a business firm in controlling and ascertaining cost of production. Lowest retail price for 1 Kg of selected ready to cook milk-based snacks = Rs 359.36/kg i.e., each 100 g packet can be sold at retail price of Rs. 36. However, margin of profit can be substantially increased by using commercial equipment’s for increasing per day production.
