Sabinsa Corporation, a Bangalore based manufactures and markets phytonutrients, Ayurvedic herbal extracts and specialty fine chemicals for nutritional, pharmaceutical and food industries has begun construction on a new continuous extraction facility in Bangalore that will increase production capacity by 200%. Sabinsa’s Founder, Dr Muhammed Majeed, oversaw the groundbreaking ceremony for the new manufacturing plant next door to the company’s existing continuous extraction facility.
“While we are primarily known for investing heavily in science and IP, we clearly also invest in insuring a sustainable supply of our proprietary ingredients to the marketplace,” said Dr Majeed. “Our farm cultivation program was the first part of the sustainability endeavor, and this expansion is part two.”
The expansion project spans across 75,000 square foot and would cost $5 million. The manufacturing plan will feature a 25 MT per day capacity continuous extractor, a 15,000 square foot down stream facility, a state of the art microbiology lab and a 45,000 square foot warehouse. The facility is expected to complete in mid-2014.
