3.0 MARKET POTENTIAL
Demand and Supply
Fruits are consumed by human beings since time immemorial and with the advent of 
technology, fruits can now be preserved for a longer period or their pulp can be processed to 
make some products with considerable shelf life. Fruit bars are also produced from the pulpof fresh fruits. They are manufactured hygienically, are attractively packed and are easy to 
transport.
Marketing Strategy
There are some established brands in the market but majority of the market is controlled by 
the regional manufacturers. Fruit bars have gained consumer acceptance due to their flavour, 
shelf life and nutritive values. With adequate marketing network, publicity in local media 
and proper placement of the products, a new entrant can make  in-roads in this ever 
increasing market.
4.0 MANUFACTURING PROCESS
The process of manufacture is standardised and simple. Fresh and ripe fruits are thoroughly 
washed and then pulp is extracted from them. Pulp is then mixed with the required quantity 
of sugar to raise the brix to 25. This blend is then dehydrated in tray dryer and drying time 
is around 18-20 hours. On cooling, slabs are cut in pre-determined sizes and are packed in 
BOPP or other food grade printed film. These packs are packed in cardboard or duplex board 
boxes for onward distribution. The average yield is around 75%. CFTRI, Mysore has 
successfully commercialised the production process.
