This is very cool business that could make you some cash with time. I like you for liking that idea 😀

You can get a machine from You can check out the various prices here.

If its on a large scale, a processing machine would be cool. But since you want to start with a small scale production, you might want to need this below….in case.

The processing line for plantain flour production is as follows:

Sorting: This involves inspection of plantain fingers to identify and remove unsuitable ones i.e. spoilt, immature pulps e.t.c.

Weighing: The sorted plantains are properly weighed to quantify input of the raw plantain.

Blanching: The green plantain fruits are soaked in hot water for some minutes to soften the skin for easy peeling.

Peeling: The plantain peels are removed manually using sharp knives to obtain the pulp.

Slicing/Chipping: The pulp is sliced or chipped with the aid of a mechanical slicer.

Drying: The sliced plantain is dried in a short time with the aid of an industrial drying machine.

Packaging: The flour is packaged in moisture proof packaging material ready for sale.


This can be stressful, but better when there is no enough cash for a Machine
