Innovation Architecture: Pickle Processing Industry “La Pukarina” – Province of Huancayo, Peru

Research output: Contribution to journalOriginal Articlepeer-review


The Pucara area has land with horticultural potential, so the project proposes the
construction of “La Pukarina” Pickle Processing Plant. The proposal is the result of the
diagnosis of horticultural production in the area to give added value to your vegetables;
producing pickles, promoting associative business work. Using the Location Factors Rubric,
made up of 9 indicators, the land for the Processing Plant was located, with an area of 24
823.25 m2
, accumulating 34 points. The design of the plant is born from a formal search, using
the geometry of the medium as the corridors and ceilings. In the same way, the Mahoney Table
will be seen, a bioclimatic design method for its distribution. After the economic analysis of
the project, the initial investment of 445282.73 USD was established in the first year, financed
at a bank interest of 7%, and financed in 6 years. The market study requires the target
population, made up of men and women between 25 and 39 years old, of whom 58% consume
pickles every two weeks, especially an organic vegetable base in the area.
Finally, the Pickles Processing Industry "La Pukarina" is proposed as a technically and
economically viable alternative to up 100.8 %.
