In line with government of India’s Make in India programme, Anmol Industries, a prominent player in the biscuit and bakery market of India started a new manufacturing unit at Bhubaneshwar in Odisha. As this is a labour-intensive industry, the factory will provide a much-needed boost to local employment in the state. Anmol Industries’ Bhubaneswar unit is the seventh manufacturing unit of the company equipped with advanced technology and tools. Built at an investment of more than Rs. 135 crore, the plant has a manufacturing capacity of 56,000 ton per annum. It has certifications like good hygiene practices (GHP), good manufacturing practices (GMP) and hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP). It is a green plant equipped with a 400kva solar plant, and will use only clean fuels like LPG. “This is our seventh manufacturing unit. Odisha is one of the most important markets for Anmol, where we are the second largest biscuit brand. With the opening of the new factory, we hope to consolidate and improve our position in the state,” he added.
