Solar is a renewable resources, sun give energy in the form of heat in food processing this solar energy is used to preserved the food product. Food drying is essential part of with the help of solar dryer preservation in agricultural applications. Early year we used open sun drying for different crop or food product but in modern age we use solar dryer. Using a solar dryer is comparatively cheaper; process is very easy, time consumable and   more efficient. These review paper present different kinds of solar dryer that are more used in food processing sector in present era. This review paper also presents the related technologies that can help improve existing solar dryers. Weather conditions are not same in every place. Solar dryer is mostly dependent on the weather condition. When Sun shine is not greater than working efficiency of drying that we can say it is not work well. Solar dryer is mostly use for drying its means moisture remove from the food product.

Key word: Renewable resources, Solar dryer, Food drying, Moisture remove.
