Elaborating on the company’s performance and expansion plans, Dhirendra Singh, its chairman and managing director, said, “At Manpasand Beverages, our aim has been to delight customers with innovative and superior quality products at affordable prices.”
“In order to be meet the continuing demands of our customers, we need to grow at a rapid pace. Recently, we had formalised plans to set four new manufacturing units, out of which construction work has already begun for new plants in Sri City, Vadodara and Varanasi,” he added.
“We have also identified location for a fourth plant in the eastern part of India. These new plants will not only double the company’s production capacity in the coming 12-18 moths, but will also help us reach out to newer markets, especially in north-eastern and southern India,” Singh stated.
The Rs 500 crore raised through a qualified institutional placement (QIP) issue recently is well placed to fund these four new plants. Four new plants are going to be set up in future with total production capacity of two lakh cases per day as against the current 1.7 lakh cases per day.
The new manufacturing units will source local produce to help meet the continual demand for Mango Sip and Fruits Up.
In order to give a boost to Fruits Up, the company enrolled Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu as its brand ambassador in the last quarter.
In the coming days, the company will be launching newer brands in the market and forging strategic alliances with key retailers.
