With the new interest in Jackfruit development, there is urgent demand for the development of labor saving devices and machines to process jackfruit.

In Kudal, Maharashtra, M/s Sagar Engineering Works is developing a jackfruit cutter as a part of a project being carried out by Dr. Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli.

 Prakash G. Sawant, proprietor of this firm says that the device will be ready in a few months. Made of food grade stainless steel, it will fasten the present cumbersome method of cutting the jackfruit. Price, work output etc has to be finalized soon.
