New milk factory to produce 45 million liters of dairy products per year

Trans. by B.MENDBAYAR

Yesterday, APU LLC opened a new milk factory capable of producing 45 million liters of product annually. This becomes the ninth project the company has implemented in the past six years. Equipment and facilities from renowned companies from eight countries, such as GEA Group of Germany, are installed in the factory capable of fully supplying Mongolian milk and milk product demands. The factory is built in conformity with European Union milk plant standards.
During the opening ceremony of the factory, Minister of Industry and Agriculture Sh.Tuvdendorj said, “Milk is a sacred symbol. Private enterprise has made a huge investment, and as a result, Mongolia – which has 50 million livestock – is becoming capable of processing its raw milk by itself and delivering fine products to its citizens. This will also support herders.” The Chief Executive Officer of APU, Ts.Erdenebileg, said, “With 90 years of experience, APU is Mongolia’s oldest beverage manufacturer. Research for the project began in 2011. Construction of the factory began last year and was completed within a year. The project became a comprehensive project that successfully contributed to improving the collaboration of milk production, milk product transportation, logistics, producers, farmers and herders. Consumers now can buy milk products that are produced in conformity with the latest standards and meet food safety standards.”
Approaching its 90th anniversary, APU invested 46 billion MNT in its new milk factory and created about 100 jobs. The company established 12 milk accumulation points throughout Tov aimag, and will buy 60-80 tons of milk from farmers and herders daily, and will manufacture 21 types of milk products. Currently, the company is manufacturing its Maamuu and Sain brand products with Sweden’s innovative packaging solution, Ecolean. The package is resistant to odor, light and is lightweight.
