Hatsun Agro Products, a leading private sector dairy company with brands ‘Arokya’, ‘Hatsun’, ‘Arun Ice Creams’, Ibaco” has announced commercial production at its newly set up modern greenfield dairy processing plant in Solapur, Maharashtra.

The plant is the 19th manufacturing location for HAP that has a network of plants in four states of Tamil Nadu, AP, Telangana and Karnataka. The fully automated dairy plant, one of the technologically superior plants in the country is set up in 72 acre land at a cost of Rs 130 crore in Solapur district in Maharashtra. The plant follows latest design philosophy and has specialised imported equipments from Germany to process 6 lakh litre milk per day (LLPD). The emphasis of the design is on employee safety, product hygiene and making products of finest quality. HAP has also set up a water pond inside the factory premises for harvesting rainwater to the tune of 1.25 crore litre. This is a first in the region and the water saved can be fully treated and utilised for multiple purposes.

The company will manufacture milk, curd, buttermilk, chaas, lassi, yoghurt and shrikhand at the new plant. HAP will market them under prestigious household brand names – ‘Arokya’ and ‘Hatsun’. The total milk processing capacity of HAP now stands at 52.50 LLPD across all its manufacturing locations in 5 states.

HAP intends to manufacture a variety of products at this Solapur facility and will provide over 3,000 direct and indirect employment opportunities in the state. Additionally, the setting up of this plant will help onboard dairy farmers to the mainstream network and will boost income of over 75,000 to 90,000 dairy farmers in Maharashtra. It aims to provide greater support to farmers with access to the best technology, farm inputs, animal husbandry services, specialised cattle feed and direct credit to their bank accounts for their milk supply.

The company has robust logistics network for supply of dairy products pan-India. This plant provides logistic and strategic advantages to reach the doorstep of the customers in quick time. With the commencement of production at the facility, HAP further intends to expand its retail network through launch of more ‘HAP Daily’ outlets in various towns of Maharashtra and Goa.

R G Chandramogan, chairman, Hatsun Agro Products, stated, “Maharashtra is a versatile state that offers excellent growth opportunities for the dairy industry. We envisage the plant to strengthen its foothold and provide a gateway of further growth in the western region. HAP’s strength is superior quality dairy products that are trusted by millions of Indian households. We see a robust demand for dairy products and we are glad to bring our quality dairy products to lakhs of households in Maharashtra. HAP stays ahead of the curve in terms of automation, quality & hygiene standards and always sets new benchmark for dairy products.”
