Noodles Production

As a World Instant Noodles Association report indicates, 290,000,000 noodles a day is eaten worldwide, which means 106.4 billion noodles a year. Noodle is a product of less than one supplier in our country and it is a product that cannot be supplied to the consumer at a fair price due to the mismatch between demand and supply. When Chilalo food complex launches this products with production capacity: 528 quintals / 24 hours, it will dramatically change the demand, price, and supply of noodles.

Grain Storage Silo

Grain storage silo has much importance for a food processing company. One advantage is lower assembling costs since this element is designed specifically for this purpose and weighs less than a storage facility, another advantage lies in how easy it is to keep the optimum storage conditions for the grain, by controlling the temperature, insects, mold, birds, which in long term storage facilities could result in an important economic loss and the third advantage consists of lower costs than that incurred from using warehouses, which entails the automation of the grain transport equipment. The loading as well as the unloading can be completely automated using a SCADA system and at a lower cost.

Chilalo Food Complex imported and installed three grain storage silos from a much known Turkey company called `My Silo`. Each silo has a capacity of 30,000 Quintals and the total capacity is 90,000 Quintals of grain.
