The present invention relates to a novel process for the production of oleoresin directly from fresh green chilli (Capsicum \ L. ). This invention leads to the production of an oleoresin conforming to the quality characteristics of the product now being produced commercially from dried ripe chilli with reference to its pungency. The product has the additional advantage of having the characteristic green chilli flavour. High pungent green chilli powder is a useful byproduct in the process.
