Own dumplings business

Food industry Semi-finished and packaging products

Despite the apparent filling of the dumplings market with the most diverse assortment of varieties, names, manufacturers and quality, the production of dumplings is one of the most profitable productions.

The popularity of dumplings (manti, lizards, etc. products) and their comparative low cost with high nutrition and satiety provides year-round stable demand. It does not decrease even during fasting, since in parallel it is possible to produce vegetarian dumplings, which eliminates the decline in demand due to religious reasons.

The production of dumplings, like many others, is optimal to create small: firstly, it does not require significant areas of premises and high costs, and secondly, it is small, family and similar industries that are now most in demand in terms of price and quality - after all, small enterprises strive to improve quality and lower prices by competing with each other.

The list of equipment necessary for opening dumplings is not large.

For a full production cycle, a line of equipment for the production of dumplings is required consisting of:

1) dumpling machine

2) equipment for the preparation of dough (flour sifter, dough mixer, dough sheeter - separately or in one unit)

3) equipment for the preparation of minced meat (meat grinder, meat mixer - separately or in one unit)

4) equipment for freezing and storing dumplings and raw materials (at least 2 cooling chambers: low and medium temperature).

Material costs for opening a dumpling production business

As for the equipment for forming dumplings, you can purchase it for only 550-750 thousand rubles. The difference in price is predetermined by the capacity of the minced bunker, and, as a consequence, by productivity. In this case, the minimum productivity is considered equal to 100 kg per hour (when purchasing equipment for 550 thousand rubles) and 200 kg per hour (respectively, when purchasing equipment for 750 thousand rubles). The staff of the device - 2 people in both cases.

The next production unit, the test one, is also serviced by two people. It consists of a flour sifter (30500 rubles), a dough mixer (326860 rubles) and a dough sheeter (42 thousand rubles). Total costs for the equipment of this unit are 399360 rubles, and cumulatively - 949360 rubles.
