Chennai-headquartered dairy products maker, Hatsun Agro Product Ltd, has entered into a pact with Germany-based, GEA, to set up a Greenfield plant in Tamil Nadu at an investment of Rs 120 crore.

According to a company statement issued by GEA, "Hatsun Agro Product is currently establishing an automated greenfield dairy project at Dharapuram near Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. The company has contracted GEA to install it (the factory) on turnkey basis."

The factory, expected to become operational next year, would have a capacity to produce three lakh litres of milk per day in pouches and 1.50 lakh litre of curd, it said.

The manufacturing unit is expected to be fourth largest plant for the Chennai-based dairy maker. GEA would provide an RO plant for concentration of skimmed milk at the factory. It would also provide specialised equipment like homogenizer and flow components at the factory.
