P&G To Invest Rs 2000 Cr For Manufacturing Facility In Gujarat

Procter & Gamble India will invest Rs 2000 crore to set up a new state-of-the-art personal healthcare manufacturing facility in Gujarat.

The facility builds on top of P&G India’s existing manufacturing footprint of eight plants across the country and expands the existing presence in Gujarat.

The new facility is situated across a 50,000 sqm area in Sanand, Gujarat. It will use state-of-the-art technology to manufacture superior products in the digestive wellness space and is designed to be fully automated based on the modern concept of ‘Industry 4.0’.

The company already operates a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Sanand, Ahmedabad, since 2015.

The new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant will produce products that are part of P&G’s global healthcare product portfolio, especially digestives. This facility will be operational over the next few years and is set to become an export hub for P&G globally, as it will help P&G India in serving consumers across the globe.

“The investment reflects upon P&G’s continued focus on partnering in India’s growth journey, and its commitment to continuously evolve and transform its supply chain to best meet the needs of its consumers, customers, and community. Just over the last decade, P&G has invested over ₹8200 crore/US$ 1 billion through its operations in the country,” the company said in a press statement.

Bhupendra Patel, Chief Minister of Gujarat, said “This manufacturing site will also be an export hub, and we welcome all the opportunities it unlocks for the local community. Gujarat and P&G India have had a longstanding association with their existing plant in Sanand, Ahmedabad. The expansion of their operations in our state is a testament to the immense potential, opportunities, and support Gujarat offers to the industry.”

LV Vaidyanathan, CEO, P&G India said, “With the new state-of-the-art facility, our objective is to transform India into an export hub for P&G globally. It also marks a significant milestone in our journey, enabling us to extend our local footprint and further elevate our capacity to deliver exceptional innovations to consumers.”

Through its flagship CSR program P&G Shiksha, P&G India has been providing access to holistic education to lesser privileged children across the country by strengthening educational infrastructure, remediating learning gaps, and empowering marginalized groups through education. In the state, the efforts under P&G Shiksha initiatives are positively impacting nearly 2.5 lakh children.
