Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) company Emami Ltd plans to set up a 500 tonnes per day of Greenfield mustard seed crushing facility.
The unit will come up in Jaipur with an estimated capital expenditure of Rs 100 crore. It is set to become operational in three-four months.
Apart from that, the company has already bought land for setting up an edible oil refinery in Kandla and is currently in advanced stage of talks for another refinery near Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT).
Sudhakar Desai, Chief Executive Officer, Emami Agrotech Ltd, a subsidiary of Emami Ltd, said, “Our attempt would be to create consumer awareness for the benefit for use of packaged edible oil in which we have added vitamin A, D and E to our existing brand ‘Healthy & Tasty’. Our biggest fight is with lose oil which normally comes with lots of adulteration. Therefore, we plan to roll out our small sachet pack of Rs 5 and Rs 10 nationwide in few years.”
