Trinidad and Tobago is an agricultural country that mainly grows cocoa, sugar cane, etc. 75% of food is imported. Industrial output accounts for nearly 50% of GDP. Oil extraction and refining are the main industries, followed by manufacturing and construction. The main manufacturing industries are food, tobacco, fertilizer, steel and so on. IS Group located in the country is mainly engaged in tobacco and has strong strength. However, due to the country's population constraints, IS Group looks forward to achieving sustainable development through diversification.
Food, as a food item for everyone's daily life, is bound to have a bright future in this business. For the expanded business areas, the senior management of IS Group unanimously chose food processing. However, as a group company mainly engaged in tobacco business, IS Group knows nothing about the technology, equipment, channels and operations of the food industry, and can only hope for a professional food processing solution provider.
To this end, IS Group visited a number of local food companies to understand the operational knowledge and equipment selection of food processing. Knowing the "Gelgoog" brand from several large local food companies aroused IS Group's confidence in opening the road to diversification. It turns out that these several domestic food companies are using the food processing solutions provided by GELGOOG, including chili sauce processing and fresh garlic processing.
After contacting GELGOOG, the head of IS Group expressed some preliminary ideas, showed great interest in chili sauce processing, and hoped to recommend some mature food processing solutions. The account manager of GELGOOG, who is well versed in the national conditions of Trinidad and Tobago, provides customers with a number of business ideas including chili sauce processing, cocoa bean processing, fruit and vegetable processing, and frying processing.
Taking into account the actual consumption market, IS Group selected cocoa bean processing and chili sauce processing under the suggestion of GELGOOG Company. From a professional point of view, the solution engineer of GELGOOG provided a complete set of solution materials including factory planning, technological process, equipment selection, and solution schematic diagram. Considering that the client has never been in contact with the food industry, GELGOOG Company took the initiative to arrange several video conferences to provide professional training for relevant personnel of IS Group.
Trinidad and Tobago produces cocoa, and GELGOOG has a proven solution for cocoa bean processing: selected cocoa beans are dried through roasting equipment, the roasted cocoa beans are further removed from moisture and produce Aromatic substances; after cooling, it enters the peeling equipment to remove the shell, and the cocoa beans are roughly crushed; then enter the colloid mill to grind to produce cocoa mass; the ground cocoa mass needs to be extracted with a hydraulic press; the refined cocoa mass is used in a deoiler Cocoa butter is separated to obtain cocoa cake; the cocoa cake is put into a pulverizer and ground into cocoa powder. The particle size of cocoa powder is very important to the taste and flavor of the finished product. The smaller the particle size, the finer the taste and the more fully released the flavor.
For the chili sauce processing solution, according to the principle of modularity, GELGOOG matches IS Group's pursuit of chili sauce quality. In addition to the chili sauce processing equipment, it is also equipped with metal detection equipment, filling Can sealing equipment and packaging film, etc.
At present, the cocoa bean processing solution provided by GELGOOG Company for IS Group have been put into production, and are becoming a new business growth point, continuously expanding IS Group's diversified business territory.
