INDIA: Tetra Pak unveils US$125m "milestone" plant
Tetra Pak has been in India for 26 years
Tetra Pak has cut the ribbon on a IND7tn (US$125m) packaging factory in India that doubles its capacity in the country.
The plant, at Chakan, near Pune, will take Tetra Pak's output to 8.5bn packages per year, the company said today (29 May). The factory has the potential to scale capacity up to 16bn packages, Tetra Pak said.
The firm, which has been in India for 26 years, said the inauguration “marks a significant milestone in Tetra Pak’s increasing presence in the Indian subcontinent”.
The 45-acre site includes a straw production unit, a processing systems workshop, a filling machine renovation and a technical training academy.
In October, Tetra Pak completed a EUR42m (US$54.2m) upgrade of its Singapore operations to boost production by a third.
