In line with its regional strategy to promote development and meet rising demand, the MANE Group has opened two new facilities in India. The first site is located at MANE KANCOR Angamaly, Kerala; the second is at MANE KANCOR Byadgi, Karnataka.

The new Angamaly isolation plant for natural colours is outfitted with a distributed control system (DCS) for operational precision, energy-efficient equipment, and an enhanced solvent recovery system.

During the inauguration ceremony, MANE Group President Jean Mane laid a foundation stone of the new Angamaly administration building and officially launched True Spice Express, a public vending machine selling whole spices, spice powders, and blends. The new plant also features a vast leisure area for employees with changing rooms and a dedicated recreational space for reading and playing indoor games.

Jean Mane also inaugurated the new administration office and isolation and enrichment plant for Oxikan natural antioxidant solutions in Byadgi, Karnataka. The new location in Byadgi also hosts a newly commissioned supercritical fluid extraction plant. This new plant extracts spices, herbs, and flowers using food-grade CO2.

Also in attendance at both inauguration ceremonies were Geemon Korah, Chief Executive Officer, MANE KANCOR; Vivek Jain, Chief Financial Officer, India and Sri Lanka; Santanu Banduri, Human Resources Director; and Mathew Varghese, Senior Vice President, Operations.

The two new facilities considerably strengthen MANE’s presence in the region and provide the Group with the logistical and operational resources it needs to ensure market growth and continued development in South-East Asia.
