  6. 6. Political Factors Budget 2011 – 12 • Government signifies the importance of improvement in retailing capacity of fruits • Ascertains the fact that 40 per cent of the fruit and vegetable production in India goes waste due to lack of storage, cold chain and transport infrastructure • Government regulated mandis prevent retailers from integrating their enterprises directly with the farmers
  7. 7. Shelf life: • Regulation on use of preservatives meant for enhancing shelf life • The Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954: Central government specifies a list of permissible preservatives, other than common salt and sugar to be used in fruit products as well as the maximum amounts of each preservative • In case of imported goods, valid shelf life/ residual shelf life should not be less than 60% of their original shelf life License • All fruit processing units require license under the Fruits Product Order, 1955 (FPO) • Contains specifications and quality control requirements regarding production and marketing of processed fruits Regulation on the category ‗Juice Drink‘ • No specific guidelines for „Juice Drink‟ category Packaging labels • The Standards of Weights and Measures Act, 1976, and • Standards of Weights and Measures (Packaged Commodities) Rules, 1977: • To be displayed: Nature of the commodity, Name and Address of the Manufacturer, Net Quantity, Date of Manufacture, and Sale Price Price disclosure Sale Price to be mentioned as per the Standards of Weights and Measures (Packaged Commodities) Rules, 1977 Environmental issues: Environment Protection Act, 1986: An Act to provide for the protection and improvement of environment Legal Issues
  8. 8. Technological Factors • Quality Control: • Freshness and quality of the expressed fruit juice is central to the quality of the final product • As soon as juice is expressed from the fruit it starts to deteriorate as a result of chemical activity and bacterial spoilage • Quick bottling is essential to reduce chances of contamination • Temperature and time of heating are critical to the taste, shelf life and color of juice • The use of the correct amount of chemical preservatives in fruit drinks needs technological precision • The final juice is evaluated on number of criteria like acidity, citrus oil level, pulp level, pulp cell integrity, color, viscocity, mouth feel, microbiological contamination and taste • Establishment of cold chain facilities is vital to maintain the quality of juice • The future processing improvements likely to come from the use of computer controlled sizing and grading of fruit
