ITC begins construction of milk processing plant in Munger

Making its foray into food processing in Bihar, FMCG major ITC  began construction of a milk processing plant in Munger district.

The plant will be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 150 crore and the work will be completed in one year,  ITC Executive Director Kurush Grant said.

It will have milk processing capacity of two lakh litres  per day and produce 10 tonne of ghee, 20 tonne milk powder and 20 tonne milk in pouches for domestic consumption per day.

Stating that Bihar has vast potential for development in food processing and dairy sector, he said ITC will set up two food processing units in the state soon.

Speaking after laying the foundation stone of the milk processing plant, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi said Bihar has huge potential for development in milk and food processing sector due to the abundant resources like milching cattle and fodder.

The state government has decided to set up milk processing units with capacity of 32 lakh litre milk production per day in Khagaria, Bhojpur and Munger districts, he said.
