Tata Coffee unveils its 5000 MTP Freeze-Dried Coffee Plant in Vietnam
Tata Coffee Vietnam Company Limited, a 100% subsidiary of Tata Coffee, unveiled their state-of-the art freeze-dried coffee production plant Vietnam, at a grand ceremony, on March 6th 2019. Situated at the Binh Duong province of Vietnam, it denotes a very significant first for Tata Coffee. This is the Company’s third manufacturing plant, after Theni and Toopran in India and is the first one to be set up at an off-shore location. The Grand Opening ceremony was attended by the Indian Ambassador to Vietnam, Consulate General of India to Vietnam, Chairman of Binh Duong People’s committee, Tata Coffee Board of Directors, MD & CEO of Tata Global Beverages, Leadership of Tata Sons, Key stake holders, representatives from VSIP and other dignitaries from Binh Duong province.
Along with the Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park (VSIP), Tata Coffee Vietnam Company Limited hosted the ceremony at VSIP II Binh Duong. This 5000 MTPA plant has started its manufacturing operations within 19 months from its Ground-Breaking Ceremony (16th August 2017) as committed. The Factory has had an exemplary safety record completing almost a million-man hours construction and commissioning work with zero harm. The site is certified for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and is expecting BRC (British Retail Consortium) shortly.
Tata Coffee Vietnam is uniquely positioned to work closely with customers to develop exclusive blends at its pilot plant.
Sanjiv Sarin, Managing Director & CEO of Tata Coffee Ltd., said, “The Tata group already has a close relationship with Vietnam in various sectors - including automobiles, steel, trading, energy and watches. While our products are already exported to over 40 countries across the globe, our Instant Coffee has so far been produced only in India. Globally Freeze Dried Coffee is a growing segment and Tata Coffee Vietnam marks our first foray beyond Indian shores as a manufacturer of premium Freeze-Dried Coffee – and is a significant milestone in our journey to becoming a global coffee major. Tata Coffee Vietnam will endeavor to bring best in class manufacturing, with a focus on sustainability and safety.
