Rice is a vital food for more than half of the world’s population, the importance of rice as a food crop has been increasing with increase in population. Rice is obtained by milling Paddy in a paddy/rice mill. Modern Rice Mills are scientifically up-to-date units, using the most modern plant machinery and technology. The manufacturing process employed in a Modern Rice Mill is a continuous and fully automatic process, consisting of Paddy fine Cleaning, Hulling, whitening, polishing, colour sorting, length grading and Packing.
The Cleaning section consists of raw paddy cleaners, de-stoner and dust blowers, where the dust, mud, stones and immature paddy are removed to make it completely free from the foreign materials. Rice produced in a Modern mill is of superior quality in terms of higher yields, appearance, elongation and better cooking characteristics and hence find greater customer acceptance. Further, the bye-product of such Mills i.e. Rice bran, find great demand as raw material among solvent Extraction Plants.
