|Title: ||Fruit Processing Plant Tsetsi, Abura Dunkwa.|

|Abstract: ||The main objectives of this study were to design a well structured fruit processing plant to process oranges and pineapples into fresh juices and concentrates and to stimulate agricultural production by creating a ready market for the orange and pineapple farmers. The study was implemented through a review of literature focusing on commodity- specific cases of agro-processing enterprises. Case studies and informal discussions with key players in agro-processing were also conducted.
The study found that the current market forces and the prevailing economic environment tend to favour more growth of medium-scale enterprises. It was therefore necessary to design a simple processing plant which is sensibly laid out and where one requirement co-relates to another with a lower initial cost.
