Milk manufacturer PT Frisian Flag Indonesia (FFI) has begun developing a new production facility worth IDR 3.8 trillion (USD 264.6 million) at the Cikarang industrial district, West Java. The unit of Dutch manufacturer Friesland Campina BV plans to produce liquid milk products, sweetened condensed milk, and creamer.
Having a total area of 25.4 hectares and expected to start operating in 2023, the new site will include a factory, office space, as well as logistics and distribution centers. Once operational, the new site’s total production capacity will exceed half a billion kilos of finished products, with the possibility to expand to one billion kilos. Around 90% of the total production targets the domestic market, and the remaining 10% is for export purposes. The facility is also expected to employ 850 workers, according to the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM).
For more than 95 years in Indonesia, FFI is a leading dairy-based nutrition specialist for children producing. Currently, FFI operates production facilities in Pasar Rebo and Ciracas in East Jakarta for a brand portfolio of Frisian Flag, Friso, and Omela.
