Indian fruit juice producer Manpasand Beverages has outlined plans to double its production capacity, by investing around INR1bn over the next one year.

The company is planning to expand its production capacity from the current 75,000 cases per day to 150,000 over the next three years.

Manpasand has three manufacturing facilities, one each in Vadodara, Banaras and Dehradun. Much of the expansion is expected to take place at the Vadodara plant.

All the three plants feature high speed PET bottle lines and tetra pack lines, as well as Zero Discharge System, the company claims.

Commenting on the expansion, Manpasand Beverages managing director Dhirendra Singh said, "In the next five years, we expect the size of fruit drink industry to more than double to around Rs 12,000 crore [$1.95bn] to Rs 15,000 crore [$2.43bn].

"We plan to increase the sales from Rs 300 crore [$48.6m] at present to Rs 1,000 crore [$162m] in three years. This is part of our plans to increase the production facilities and distribution reach across India, especially in rural and semi-rural regions."

Established in 2010, Manpasand Beverages produces and markets fruit juice. The company sells its product under the Mango Sip brand.

The company’s product portfolio includes Mango Sip, Apple Sip, Guava Sip & Litchi Sip.
