Parle - G

The biscuit Parle – G is manufactured at Parle Products Ltd at Vile Parle. Parle buys raw material from its suppliers. The raw material is tested carefully in labs. This raw material is made up of sugar, wheat flour, partially hydrogenated edible veg oils, leavening agents, milk solids, invert syrups, salt emulsifiers etc. which are listed above. This all raw material mixture is then fed into Stephan Mixture. It is a high power mixing machine which is made to mix the dough and other ingredients. From this machine, the mixture is then taken to a molder which is known as Rotary Moulder. This molder has around 260n cups which give the biscuit their famous familiar shape and the Parle – G impression embossed on every single biscuit.

Manufacturing Process of Parle – G: Stages Involved in Manufacturing of Parle – G

Now the next step is to transfer the dough from mold into an oven, which is 260 feet long at 340° C. The oven process is followed by following steps:

  • Moisture Removal
  • Biscuit structure building
  • Biscuit coloring

Now, from the oven the biscuits are transferred to a Cooling Conveyor, and the biscuits are allowed to cool down for around 6 to 7 minutes so that the remaining moisture may go dry. And that’s how there is an S Flow Layout in the manufacturing unit.

The conveyor keeps on moving and reaches to Counting Unit. As the name suggests, the biscuits are counted here and are cross examined if all is working fine or not. The biscuits move to the Stalking Table where the biscuits are packed in the same manner. From the table, the biscuits are taken to the Multi Pack Wrapping Machine which packs 16 packs in one go and the weight comes up to 100 gms. A total of 24 packs is packed in a polybag and then sent to Sealing Machine to seal it airtight. From here, these are moved to  Corrugate Box Section where the bags are put in the boxes and are then sent to the Dispatch Section via the conveyor. And the biscuits are ready to be sent all across the country.
