Fonterra Brands Sri Lanka can now meet demand for an extra 10 million servings of locally-sourced Anchor Newdale yoghurt each month, with the investment in its second state-of-the-art Rs. 450 million form-fill-seal (FFS) machine.
The dairy co-operative said the high-tech FFS machine will enable the company to produce 125 per cent more yoghurt than its previous capacity, re-energising the appetite for fresh dairy nutrition.
Managing Director of Fonterra Brands Sri Lanka and the Indian Subcontinent, Sunil Sethi, said this investment is the latest in the company’s Rs. 10 billion commitment to boost the nation’s dairy industry.
