West Bengal is the third largest market for the company in the country
Britannia Industries (BIL) is planning to invest Rs 300-350 crore in a new state-of-the-art facility in Bengal. The company will be investing in the state after a long time.
The plant at Taratala is the oldest plant of Britannia Industries. Besides this plant, the company has a contract manufacturing unit near Dankuni.
BIL’s top official said, “In the last 10 years, the company has invested in Bihar, Odisha and Assam but there was no fresh investment in Bengal. But now, we are planning to make some.”
Britannia is one of the leading food companies in India. West Bengal is the third largest market for the company in the country as the revenue earned from it is over Rs 750 crore.
As part of its national plan, the company may also set up cold chain infrastructure in West Bengal. Presently, Britannia is setting up cold chain infrastructure at Ranjangaon near Pune.
