Naturals has decided to double its production capacity. The home-grown ice cream brand will also relocate existing manufacturing unit in Kandivali to a bigger facility in Panvel.
The management of this closely held 35-year old company has commenced search for land parcels to set up the new production unit that will cater to existing and future demand.
Srinivas Kamath, director, Kamaths Ourtimes Ice Creams P Ltd (which owns of the Naturals brand), was quoted as saying by DNA that the company’s Charkop, Kandivali factory, launched in the later part of 2000 with a lot of automation has a daily production capacity of 25 tonne.
He added: “We not only make our ice creams but also process the milk and fruits. The factory is currently running full capacity supplying to existing 125 outlets. The plan is to shift production base from Charkop to a much larger factory in the Panvel MIDC area with more than double capacity. It’ll be a time-consuming process but is work-in-progress as we speak.”
