Jain Farm Fresh has announced the opening of the largest spice processing facility in India, which will be utilised by Jain-owned Sleaford Quality Foods for wider spice distribution purposes.
At 14,000 metres squared, it will be the largest spice processing facility in India with a capacity of 24,000 metre tonnes per year, and the only integrated spice facility from drying to milling in the world. The expansion will allow Sleaford to expand its distribution outreach, and will also increase job opportunities for over 5,000 farmers. This adheres to Sleaford’s commitment to fairtrade.
According to the company, the new facility will provide sustainability at all stages of the process through Jain’s unrivalled contract farms scheme. Spices will be harvested, farmed, dried and processed on-site and the plant has the capability to produce 100 per cent steam-sterilised products.
