Cost of Raw Materials

To manufacture anything you need the raw materials. When it comes to a wheat milling plant, the important raw material is wheat. Cost of getting this raw material is largely affected by a number of factors.

First one is quality of the wheat you're looking for. The prices of precious metals like gold can also influence the price of wheat. Stock market fluctuations, the rise and fall of currency exchange rate and the type of wheat (whether locally or internationally sourced) all play a major role in determining how much these raw materials go for.

Cost of Equipments

How much to be spent on flour mill equipments for the factory is largely dependent on the type of machines required to run the plant. The cost of equipment is decided by the capacity of the machine. If you're looking on the high side, you can find a grain milling machine that goes for as much as $1,400,000. But you need to know the production capacity you want for your factory before setting out to get equipments. (Related Machinery: 1000 tonnes grain storing silo project >>)

Cost of Labor

In a wheat processing factory, you will need labor at different departments. They will help ensure production runs smoothly and effectively. But before you think of the cost of labor, think of how large your plant is going to be. 

Have you thought of how many workers you will need? Remember that the larger your factory, the more employees you will need. This is one major factor that determines how much labor will cost you. Another factor is the different skill level of the labor to be hired. To get the skilled employees with experience, you will need to pay more. Because you may need more unskilled labor than the skilled ones, you will have to pay more for these set of employees too.

Be sure to know how much labor needed to make the factory as productive as possible. This will help you to make a good estimate of the cost of labor.

Cost of Land

Purchasing land can be very technical because of the kind of commodity that it is — it is always appreciating. When you know the needed raw materials and how much labor required, you should set out to pick a site where you want to set up a wheat flour mill factory.

Just like raw materials, the availability of land and its prices is influenced by a number of factors. ls the land in some part of town or are you getting one in the city? How much land will is needed? Will it be a few acres or hectares? Depending on the location, you can find land for as much as over $190,000.
