DRFL signs technology transfer agreement with Goodrich Cereals


The Defence Food Research Laboratory (DFRL), Mysuru, has inked a technology transfer license agreement for the transfer of instant cooking rice and instant whole pulses and their curries with Goodrich Cereals, Karnal, Haryana.


Gopal Kumar Sharma, officiating director, DFRL, and Rohit Gupta, managing partner, Goodrich Cereals, signed the agreement in the presence of inventors A D Semwal (scientist G), Pandit Srihari (technical officer B) and Govinda Raj (technical officer A).


DFRL has developed the instant cooking rice process by pressure cooking and conditioning to particular moisture content, flaking to a specified thickness and drying in through a flow dryer, such that it retains its porous structure with low-density which helps in faster rehydration during reconstitution. Instant rice does not require cooking. The rice can be prepared for consumption by just adding in hot water of about 80-90 degrees within five minutes.


Goodrich Group of Companies from last two decades has made inroads in multiple area of production in a convincing and mastered way from Natural & Modified starches for Pulp & Paper, Corrugation & Textile Industry to Nutraceutical ingredients /Botanical Extracts/Maltodextrin Powder/Bakery & HORECA products, to Cooking cream, Table spread, manufacturing of Barley Malt for Breweries & Food industry.
