Further optimization technique was used to analyse the resource allocation in chillies industries. It was found that cost of production of chilli powder was Rs. 30.15/ pocket (200 gm/pocket) andthe profit earned was estimated as Rs. 14.85per pocket of chilli powder product. Whereas cost of production of chilli sauce was Rs. 31.02/ pocket (200 gm/pocket) and the profit earned was estimated as Rs. 8.98 per pocket of chilli sauce product. The establishment of rural chillies processing industry as a cooperative venture, covering about 1000 chillies growers (5-10 villages) was also found to be economically viable. The linear program analysis indicted that 47,945 Chillies powder pockets/year should be produced @ 160 pockets (200 gm pockets) per day.
