The company has plans to increase its milk processing capability by 90 lakh litres in the coming years and will be coming up with ten new milk processing units across the country.

It will be spread across 16 acres of land. Sodhi said the dairy company will focus on manufacture of milk products, beverages and ice cream in the upcoming plant in the city. "The new investments will help attaining Rs.50,000 crore turnover in 2-3 years from Rs.18,000 crore as on March 2014," he said. It is expecting to close the ongoing fiscal year over Rs.21,500 crore.
