The virtual inauguration of this high-end industrial facility was honoured by the ambassador of Netherlands, Mr Marten Van den Berg on 11 December 2020.
Trouw Nutrition has ramped up its operations in the South Asian and Indian market in the past 3 years, hence, the state-of-the-art production facility in Jadcherla, Hyderabad. The company’s unique ‘Nutrace’ programme, a food safety and quality initiative of Nutreco, ensures end-to-end quality and traceability, and emphasis on feed-to-food safety. The entire manufacturing process is automated right from raw material handling to bagging at the plant so that the final product is completely untouched by human hands.
The plant at Jadcherla has a total capacity of 20,000 MT/annum. Its unique 45-meter tower ensures uniform mixing for a high-quality product to meet our customer’s need. The cold store made available at the facility helps storage of vitamins and heat sensitive ingredients. Remaining true to Nutreco’s commitment to sustainability, the facility also provides recycling of liquid waste for the environment safety and rainwater harvesting for minimal impact on environment. The facility is expected to reach full capacity utilisation by 2025.
