The processes required to manufacture human food from oilseeds and nuts vary considerably, depending on the raw materials and the scale of the operation. Large-scale producers can select equipment from a range of manufacturers, but the choice for smaller manufacturers is generally limited. Small-Scale Vegetable Oil Extraction presents the options available for processing a range of common oilseeds from domestic to village scales of operation. Details are provided on the type and source of equipment, and the requirements for financial success are examined. The publication will be of interest both to entrepreneurs and NGOs considering setting up oilseed operations.
