Mehsana Dairy a member union of GCMMF has floated tenders to sell off Dudhsagar Dairy plant in -Manesar in Haryana. The move is likely to cause a feeling of dismay in the Gujarat’s dairy sector, say media reports.
The tender floated for sale of Manesar plant includes its land, building, machineries and equipment. The Manesar plant’s book value is estimated at Rs 285 crore as per the tender.
The Manesar dairy plant had been set up to ensure supply of milk and milk products to consumers in the Delhi-National Capital Region.
Mehsana Dairy set its foot outside Gujarat and set up its plant in Haryana as other dairy unions of the state followed suit and started setting up milk processing units across the country.
Vipul Chaudhary was the Chairman of this very milk union. Readers would recall Indian Cooperative had done an exclusive story on Manesar plant in these columns in the past.
