A new instant coffee plant built for Indian drinks conglomerate Tata has opened its doors in the Binh Duong province of Vietnam, the firm’s construction partner GEA has revealed.
The plant, Tata’s first instant coffee factory outside of India, will reportedly produce 5,000 tonnes of instant coffee per annum.
In a previous statement, Tata said: “We believe that Vietnam will not only open up new markets for us, but it will also bring us closer to the source, which means we would be able to explore different grades of coffee to enhance our already existing portfolio”.
The facility has a pilot plant in place along side the main unit to create and co-create customized blends, the company added, allowing it to develop and deliver coffee blends according to customer requirements.
“With the latest technology in our design and equipment, in-house sample development, a NPD cell in place, we envisage a future where we can innovate and develop new product varieties efficiently, both in terms of cost, effort and time”, Tata concluded.
