The Project is conceived by all the three promoters to manufacture and market all kinds of enzymes from Pappaya Latex. Latex is a semi-solid, high viscos material tapped from Pappaya fruit. This is the base raw material and this latex will be processed under various methods to extract Ultra Refined Pappain Powder (URPP). This URPP is used as a critical input in the following Industries and many more
1. Meat Processing
5. Effluent Treatment
R & D LABORATORY AND ROUTINE QUALITY CONTROL ACTIVITY:
All the samples of latex from the field, pooled latex, intermediate product, finished product are as outlined above, regularly sent to laboratory for testing and evolution. The results of analysis are recorded systemically under suitable title in prescribed formats (enclosures) the R&D lab is fullyequipped and well-staffed, accommodating UV VIS spectrophotometer, precise analytical balance, laminar flow, Microscope, Incubators, Precision water bath, pH meter, Centrifuge, colony counter, Autoclave, Vacuum chamber, muffle furnace, KJD nitrogen estimation set-up, Magnetic stirrer, Centrifuge, Universal water bath, etc.
MAINTENANCE OF HYGENIC AMBIENCE IN THE PRODUCTION ZONE:
Quality of finished product is primarily related to the quality of starting raw material, particular methods or procedure adopted during processing; Mode of operations and additions, aleaness of processing equipments and pipe lines also the surrounding atmosphere etc. Hence following instructions are to be followed strictly by all those involved directly in production particularly inside the zone of production. All doors and glass windows are kept closed in the entire zone of production (allowing only the light). Anybody be it supervisor or worker or others would don sterile gloves, mask, cap, and leave the shoes or slippers before entering the production zone. No material be it later, or intermediate products or finished products or additives should be touched with bare hands. No extraneous material whatever it may be, should litter the floors. The whole of production zone is to be frequently fumigated at regular interval time.
QUALITY CONTROL OF STORES AND CONSUMABLES:
A number of substances (filter aid, antimicrobials, filter cloth etc) have to be used during processing of latex to get ultra refined papain powder of specified quality. All materials, to be used, should be of food grade. Before choosing a supplier, Availability of specifications of product to be supplied is essential. A specimen sample is to be tested in the laboratory. The standard followed should conform to the specifications as stipulated by Indian pharmacopoeia. Once supplier is chosen, a sample is drawn from bulk and tested before being used in the production plant.
