Britannia Industries has launched its largest greenfield manufacturing facility in Guwahati in Assam at an investment of Rs 1.7 billion.

According to the company’s Managing Director Varun Berry, “We are very excited about this launch as it helps augment our vision to be a total foods company and strengthen our position as a market leader in the packaged foods industry.”

He added that the idea is to make Assam a gateway to South-Asian and South East Asian markets. The state-of-the-art plant is spread over 22 acres and has an annual production capacity of 60,000 tonnes.

The unit, which will cater to Britannia’s vision of being a total foods company, will soon be adding manufacturing lines of new product categories in the snacking space.
