Alltech has officially opened a new manufacturing plant in Pune, India, with a production capacity of 25,000 tons per year, making it Alltech’s largest organic trace mineral plant in Asia.
Alltech India opened its first office in 2001. Production operations began in Bengaluru, India, in 2004.
The facility in Pune, a city of five million near a port, was designed to cater to the local market as well as South Asia and Southeast Asia, Australia and Europe. The 132,000-sq-ft plant employs 50 workers and is equipped with a lab for testing raw materials and finished goods.
The facility, which uses the Alltech® Quality System and Alltech Q+™ program to ensure quality, safety and traceability of all products, will soon obtain certifications such as ISO22000:2005 (for food safety management), FAMI-QS certification (for European food standards) and ISO14000:2015 (for environmental management).
Alltech opened a sales and support office in Kathmandu, Nepal, last October.
