Kiremko, a food processing equipment manufacturing firm from Netherlands, is looking to invest 25 million euros in Gujarat. Currently, the company already supplies food processing equipment to manufacturers of frozen potato-based products in Gujarat.
Kiremko already supplies equipment to frozen-potato based food products manufacturers McCain and Hyfun Foods. Gujarat is the largest producer and exporter of frozen potato-based products in India.
Bhavana Vishawanath, the firm’s country director, said: “We are looking to set up an equipment manufacturing facility in India. This equipment will be used in food processing, primarily for frozen potato-based products. Gujarat is an ideal choice because it may be easily used as a production hub and supplier for processed potato products.”
Dutch ambassador to India, Nepal and Bhutan Marten van den Berg stated: “We are looking to work with Indian companies in area of medicines and vaccines for manufacturing as well as research and development.”
