Small-scale Cereal Milling and Bakery Products - Production methods, equipment and quality assurance practices

The purpose of this manual is to guide the small-scale cereal miller and baker in Uganda to optimize their processing methods and implement GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and quality assurance schemes and build their technical capacity for improved market access and competitiveness. This manual covers technical aspects of cereal processing to produce safe and high quality products. It does not deal with the many other aspects of operating a successful small business such as marketing, business and financial planning and management skills. Where appropriate, there are worked examples of calculations to assist entrepreneurs to develop their skills, particularly in production planning. Throughout the text there are checklists of important points to enable processors to assess their present quality and food safety practices.
