Ruchi Soya Industries today said it has received approval from the Karnataka government to set up multiple new facilities in the food and agri-business sector in Dakshina Kannada district.
The company received the clearance from State Level Single Window Clearance Committee (SLSWCC) recently, Ruchi Soya said in a statement here. “The proposed new integrated platform is expected to have significant value for both the Indian farmer, in terms of efficient handling of produce and sales realisation, as well as for the Indian consumer, who will stand to gain from an increased range of high quality finished products,” Ruchi Soya Founder and Managing Director Dinesh Shahra said. Ruchi Soya had entered into an agreement with Karnataka government in November 2015, for setting up these facilities. The company further invested Rs 2 billion from 2001-2011 and set up a edible oil refinery plant in Mangalore with a capacity of 1,400 tonne per day.
