With an initial investment of approximately DKK 300 million the company plans to establish a new enzyme production and supply chain facility that is expected to be ready for operation in 2018 and will employ 150 people in the first phase.

The new plant will produce enzymes using solid state fermentation and will also formulate enzymes imported from Novozymes’ production sites outside India.

At present, the key business areas for Novozymes in India are the household care, textiles, food & beverages, oil & fats, baking, and beverage alcohol markets.

Novozymes has been present in India since 1983 and currently occupies three sites in Bangalore in India’s southern State of Karnataka.

The solid state fermentation and supply chain operations for the region will now move to the new production site near Mumbai, while all other functions will remain in Bangalore, including Novozymes’ Indian Head Office, Research & Development center and the service centers which provide support to global operations.
