Food company, Britannia Industries (BIL) has come up with a greenfield manufacturing facility in the country, at an investment of.`200 crore in Rampur, Assam. The Rampur facility will produce a wide array of Britannia products to cater extensively to Assam and the north-eastern states. The unit has a production capacity of 60,000 tonnes of biscuits annually.

The company already has two manufacturing facilities in Assam with a production capacity of 30,000 tonnes annually. Varun Berry, managing director, Britannia Industries, who was in Assam on Monday, said the facility in Rampur has come up in record time of 14 months. “The way government of Assam has supported us in getting clearances is unprecedented and unseen in any other place in the country,” he said. He added, “Britannia is Rs 10,000-crore company with operations in 75 countries. Northeast India roughly accounts for Rs 600-crore business annually and Assam facilities contribute 8% to the total production. In the three units in Assam, the company has invested close to Rs 350 crore.”

“As government of Assam is initiating for communication with South East Asian countries, we may look at supplying our products from here to those countries. We are diversifying and adding more products, we will soon emerge as a complete food company. Assam could be an ideal base to evaluate business expansion to International markets,” Berry added.
