SDF develops 100 process protocols for solar drying of Fruits & Veggies

Solr Dryers and Foods (SDF) has successfully developed an inventory of over 100 process protocols for solar drying of fruits, vegetables, forest produce and so on. With this, adding value to agri-horti produce and reducing post-harvest losses has been made possible. In this regard, SDF has set up solar drying facilities with necessary forward and backward integration with a capacity to produce around 3.0 MT of finished ready to go to market products.

In order to facilitate faster commercialization and transfer of technologies to the target groups, Society for Energy, Environment and Development (SEED) encouraged an affiliate organization-Solr Dryers and Foods, LLP. (SDF) based in Hyderabad in 2016. Dr. M.M. Krishna, President, SEED, said, SDF is looking forward to joining hands with synergic partners with worldwide market reach. We will be delighted to be the manufacturing partner for the esteemed organisations. SDF has the necessary technical capability to fine- tune or reformulate the existing products or develop any other new products as per the market needs. SDF is supported by the state-of-the-art quality control and product development centre recognised by the Department of Scientific & Industrial Research, Government of India.

SDF’S focus has been essentially on helping the target groups to add value to the agri-horticulture produce while helping to significantly reduce the post- harvest losses. The company markets Solar Cabinet Dryers in different capacities and tailored for different agro climatic conditions, as well as promotes the appropriate processing protocols for different fruits, vegetables, spices, condiments, forest produce and much more, he added.
