China-based dairy producer Yili Group has opened the first phase of its new ice cream factory in Indonesia. Upon completion of its second phase, it will be the largest ice cream factory in the country and produce four million ice cream products per day.

In a press release, president Pan Gang commented: “Local consumers’ clear preference for and trust in our products has reinforced Yili’s confidence about our long-term investment and development in Indonesia. Yili is always dedicated to following the highest standards to drive quality, sustainable development over the long term and establishing localised operations that benefit the communities where we operate. This ensures that we can better serve local consumers and make deep contributions to socio-economic development throughout the region.”

The new hub will focus on accelerating manufacturing, R&D and marketing efforts for the company’s Joyday line of products.

Advanced digital technologies have been implemented throughout the factory’s entire production chain. This includes robotics solutions that will provide automated packing, palletising and warehousing.  

Yili Group plans to create more than 5,000 direct and indirect jobs through the new plant. It is also actively looking to establish links with local partners. The company currently has cooperative relationships with more than 90 suppliers in Indonesia.
