A DOUBLES factory operator in San Juan says the company has invented a doubles-making machine and a pholourie machine, which can cut production times of the local culinary delights by 40 per cent.
The doubles machine can produce up to 1,000 doubles an hour while the pholourie machine can make 12,000 pholouries in an eight-hour shift.
The machines are the brainchild of Toddy Ramsahai of Radha Swami Industries Ltd, the company which owns and operates supermarket-based doubles outlets branded as “Doubles King”.
For the past three years, the Boundary Road, San Juan factory has been using the machines to mass-produce barra and pholourie which are then sold to local vendors.
In an interview with Express Business at the factory last Friday, Ramsahai disclosed that a businessman in England has already put in an order for the machines.
“The England client has a roti business and he wants to diversify into doubles and pholourie now. He came to Trinidad and tested them out. We’re in the process of exporting,” he said. “The initial idea behind the machine was to simplify the doubles-making process and to make the barra more consistent, so when you go to buy doubles you will have a consistent type of product.”
