Dutch Lady Milk Industries Bhd aims to double its production in 2024 with the commencement of its new RM540 million (US$115 million) facility in Bandar Enstek which boasts of 8 production lines. The facility is located on a 12.9 hectare site and will support the company’s expansion plan.
According to its Managing Director, Ramjeet Kaur Virik, “The land is 3 times the size of its current Petaling Jaya factory. (Therefore), when we go live next year, we will be able to double production capacity.”
The new manufacturing hub will also house a distribution centre, enabling Dutch Lady to operate an end-to-end production cycle. It will also have a R&D centre to allow for dairy product innovations to meet both domestic and export demand.
Dutch Lady is also committed to reduce 30% of its carbon footprint, and is working in alignment with its parent company, Royal FrieslandCampina NV, to raise the nutrition intake among children while at the same time upskill the community.
Dutch Lady is a leader in the milk segment with 34.2% share of the Malaysian market in volume terms.
