M.M. Ghee Mill (Pvt) Ltd. is an edible oil refinery, refining 200 Metric Tons of Canola, Sunflower, Soybean and Palm Oil per day. In addition it has launched and is marketing Cooking oil and Banaspati Ghee under the brand name of ‘Moulvi’.
The mill is located inside Port Qasim in the Edible Oil and Molasses area. The entire plant was built and commissioned in the first quarter of 2013 by Alfa Laval – headquartered in Sweden, specializing in large scale operations of separating solutions with subsidiary companies in more than 35 countries around the world.
The Plant is build with state of the art automated technology and is centrally controlled using computers - Programmable logic Controllers (PLC). It functions as a continous operation and uses Supervisory Control and Data Acquistion (SCADA) systems to ensure accuracy to produce premier quality editable oil and banaspati.
It sounds de-nourishing but it is necessary to refine the oil because it contains impurities such as Moisture, Solids (In solubles), Gums (Lecithin), Free-Fatty Acids (FFA), Waxes, and Componds of Sodium, Potassiumm Magnesium, Calcium, and other metals. These impurities need to be removed to make the oil healthy for us.
