    Hi Scott, thanks for all your comments helped me a lot. I am from Hyderabad, I did survey the market in here.
    But it’s so disturbing because markets are up and down. So in the end I thought to set up a small scale industry just outside greater hyd, which is rural area. I have got couple of acres of land. I am thinking about food processing or agriculture…can’t decide anything, Got 10-20L capital with me. So if u can advice me how to start up or which one is good, that would be great. Thanks

    I am MBA graduate. My family belongs to Farming. I want to start small business of cucumber powder. I can easily make available with raw material. I am not able to get the idea of who will be my end customer. their are companies who produces all type of powder of vegetable and fruits.

    I have send inquiry mail about machinery required asking for budget and all to almost 10 companies. But no response from any one. Even, I have visited consultant too for project guidance but their fees of consultation is out of the pocket. I am practicing on marketing part first because I need to understand the domestic prospective customer and then international. But I am not getting idea that how to recognized prospective customer. Once it is finalized then only I can go for next step of physical project preparation.

    If I am getting small budget machinery under govt scheme, this will be additional advantage.

    kindly suggest
    Thank you
