Global equipment and process technology provider GEA is planning to set up production facility in Gujarat.

According to the release, GEA has got an offer from AmulFed Dairy, a unit of Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), to build milk production facility in Gandhinagar.

“We will provide AmulFed with a hygienically-superior plant that will deliver peak performance. The AmulFed milk powder plant at Gandhinagar will not be just the largest in Asia but it will also be the most environment friendly,” said Abhay Chaudhari, Country Managing Director, GEA- India Cluster.

The order, worth ‘lower double-digit million-euro’, is for setting up a new turnkey dairy plant for the production of 150 tonne per day of skim milk powder and 120 tonne per day of dairy whitener and baby food, GEA said in a release.

The milk powder plant is scheduled to begin production in 2018.

The plant, to be installed on a turnkey basis by GEA, will process around 90,000 litres per hour of milk to produce multiple value-added products.
