Konkan is a great area having a huge potential for oil seeds. But hardly these seeds are used locally for consumption . MNC seed firms are forming lobby and the local wisdom of producing un-refined healthy oil, butter, soaps, cream etc is dying. Farmers left with no options sell their food grains at petty price.

"University of Life" is a center of Syamantak for Life Long Learning  & Sustainable Livelihood. We would like to introduce a low cost oil extraction machine, as we all know that the edible oil available in market is not pure which can harm our health but a Low-cost oil extraction machine is simple solution for this which can extract oil from groundnut, sesame, coconut, castor, linseed, Kokum etc in-house. It runs on hydraulic pressure which we have to apply by pressing the handle at certain pressure the oil from seeds come out, and the seeds remain as it is but with less oil. Again this seeds we can use for cooking purpose and also for making products like low fat chikki which is verry good for calorie conscious people. This will give our farmers, village women and institute interns a value added benefit.

This product is developed by our friend in Gujarat Mr.Vishven and Bhargav Soneji. We would like to send our two interns to their village to learn the assembling of this machine so that in future Syamantak can train local craftsman in Dhamapur village to make such machine in-house.
