Godrej Consumer Products (GCPL) has entered a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with India’s Government of Tamil Nadu for the development of a manufacturing facility.

The fast-moving consumer goods company will construct a new facility at Thiruporur taluk within Chengalpattu district, near the state’s capital Chennai.

With an investment of Rs5.15bn, the new facility will be developed over a period of five years.

The plant is anticipated to significantly enhance GCPL’s overall production capabilities.

The facility will leverage energy-efficient technologies, adopt waste-reduction strategies, and feature solar roof panels and a zero-liquid discharge system.
