Continental Coffee Limited (CCL Products) plans to invest $20 million to expand capacity of its Vietnam plant and set up an agglomeration and packing facility in India during the current financial year.
Challa Rajendra Prasad, Executive Chairman, CCL Products, told reporters here on Tuesday that the investment will be made from internal accruals during the current financial year while operations would begin next year.
The company, listed on Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange, is also looking at 15-20 per cent growth in its top line during 2019-20. It had a turnover of Rs 1,100 crore last year. CCL, claimed to be the world’s largest private label instant coffee manufacturer, exports its processed coffee to about 90 countries and currently has a capacity of 50,000 tonnes per annum at four plants -- two in India and two abroad.
The company offers over 100 products in 1,000 blends and it claims customisation as its USP. CCL plans to focus on India as the domestic coffee market is growing with new processing technology, increasing demand and affordability.
