We import liquid flavorings like Apple, Banana, Melon that are dissolved in propylene glycol. The problem is importing these products are bulky and expensive because of the propylene glycol carrier that we can buy locally in our country.
Now my question is it possible to solidify / powdering these flavors? And which companies do this commercially? Please list me multiple options.

Thanks for bringing your question to Uclue.
Please clarify a few things for me. Do you want to find someone to powderize the material you currently use? Or do you want to find a source of powdered fruit ingredients?
There are a number of suppliers like these folks in China:
who sell fruit ingredients in already-powdered form. Let me know if that's the sort of supplier you're looking for.

I'm trying to find someone to powderized our products and whether is it possible
This is an example of our product:
These products are dissolved in Propelyn glycol.

Thanks. There are certainly powderization technologies available, like those at this firm in Japan:
It seems you want your supplier to powderize before shipment, though. Perhaps we can help you and your supplier identify other firms, like the above, that can assist in this. Let me know if that link is useful, and we'll see if we can identify others for you. If there is a particular geographical area of interest, let us know that as well.

In addition to the Japan link, (above), this company, with operations in France, US, and elsewhere, supplies natural fruit flavorings in powder form:
Might be worth contacting them for more information.
Let me know if either of these seems to be on the right track for what you need.

Thank you for those links. Those are helpful.
Our supplier can't provide powderized products. So my plan is to ship the products to a powderization firm in United States and then they will then ship the products to our country.
We are on the right track.

The japan firm you provided is very useful.
Can you also provide me United States firm that can provide us with powderization technologies.

Thanks for the feedback. Let me know what you think of this firm in Texas:

Seatex can provide chemical blending & packaging services to strict specifications, duplicate formulas or make available 400+ finished formulations...Seatex serves...Grocery Store & Retail Food..."
They have a lot of powderization and food/cosmetics handling experience, but it's hard to know from their website whether they could handle your particular needs. If they seem like a useful lead, though, let me know and I can perhaps find a few others.
