Production of wine from Banana, Orange and its marketing to fulfill consumers demand to reduce the import of foreign wine. It will be new product in market from locally available raw materials and new taste to the consumers.

Beverage consumption in Nepal is increasing day by day with change in the food habit of people. Beverage covers a wide range of liquor and drinks. So beverage industry is a big associated directly with the public’s food and drinking habit.

Today’s consumers are more or less health conscious and equally needs the refreshment in their daily life. Beverage products are basically for the refreshments and enjoyments from the daily drinking habit. People also want their health upgrade or in proper condition while they enjoy or refresh themselves by drinks. And many of the beverages have fulfilled this demand though some alcoholic drinks are not good for health. So, wine industries and their products has been an inevitable essence of modern society.

The demand of wine in Nepal basically depends on the seasonal factors. The alcoholic drinks like hard drinks and wine are likely to have more demand in the colder seasons. Moreover the soft drinks and alcoholic beverage also receives the higher demand in the festivals and the occasions. Wine is a non-alcoholic beverage that is popular with the upper and middle class. It is served at ceremonies and social gatherings, such as weddings, outings, naming ceremonies, house warming, parties, and night clubs. In recent times, table wine has gained wide acceptance owing to its low alcoholic content. It is also a known fact that some brands have medicinal properties, thus owing to changing lifestyles, drinking habits, and health reasons, wine is now generally taken in preference to beer and other spirits.As such, it is now widely consumed by many households, served in hotels, restaurants and aircraft, among others. From the market survey carried out, there is an excellent local market.

Despite the greater demand of wine in Nepal there is no wine industry in the country. People have to pay lager amount to the foreign liquor and as result huge amount of money is flowing out of the country. Moreover, wine available in market are made from apple, grape, grain or other fruit but not banana and orange. So, we will provide consumer the new taste and product. There is only one banana wine industry in Tikapur (Kalu Hamal) and people have to travel long distance to taste the banana wine as it is not produced in commercial scale yet.

So we are planning to run wine industry utilizing the local fruits like banana, orange and provide employment opportunity to the locals. The area under cultivation and total production of banana and orange is also gradually increasing in Nepal which will make the availability of raw materials for the industry.

Oranges are grown in mid-hills districts like Gorkha, Lamjung Palpa, Syangja, Sindhuli and banana is grown in lower region; Chitwan, Nawalparasi, Bara, Parsa, Rupandehi, Kailali. Therefore this idea can be implemented in all places where thre is production of banana and orange.
