Procter & Gamble’s Hyderabad site is set to become the FMCG giant’s largest consumer care facility in India.

Spread over 170 acres in Kothur, on the outskirts of Hyderabad, it added a new state-of-the-art liquid detergent manufacturing unit on Monday.

This is P&G’s first liquid detergent manufacturing unit in India. The company has invested nearly Rs 200 crore in setting up this unit, which will bring the overall investment made by the company in the facility to Rs 1,700 crore over the past seven years.

The company currently operates 35% of the total territory. Telangana Industries Minister KT Rama Rao, who inaugurated the liquid detergent unit, asked the company to accelerate plans to utilize the entire campus and provide jobs for 6,000 to 10,000 people local.

“I have been told that this facility is on its way to becoming P&G’s largest consumer care facility in India. The day is not far away,” he said.

The P&G site is currently focused on producing fabric care brands Ariel and Tide, and baby care brand Pampers.

Madhusudan Gopalan, CEO of P&G Indian Subcontinent, said they strategically chose Hyderabad as the location to expand their operations as it offers an investor-friendly environment and top-notch facilities made possible by the government.

“Hyderabad plays a key role in P&G’s growth in the country. In addition to our facilities, we have established our state-of-the-art planning service center and a dedicated technology center in Hyderabad that integrates global innovation with local needs. bring the best of the world to our consumers in India,” he said.

KTR thanked P&G for its continued support of communities in Telangana during the pandemic and through its P&G Shiksha program. He noted that the company was supporting the state’s COVID relief measures by providing 200,000 masks and other materials.

On the sidelines of the event, Minister Rama Rao, Education Minister Sabitha Indira Reddy, Industries & Commerce Principal Secretary Jayesh Ranjan and Madhusudan Gopalan inaugurated new classrooms and sports complex at Inmulnarva Zilla Parishad High School supported by P&G Shiksha.

Over the years, in Telangana, the company has built, modernized and renovated nearly 35 schools with more than 100 classrooms and sports, sanitary and hygiene facilities.

Through its P&G Shiksha program, the company will impact over 2 lakh children across the state.

In addition to this, each year through the P&G Mother Daughter Health & Hygiene program, P&G educates and distributes free sanitary napkins to teenage girls.

He has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Telangana to partner in the field of Menstrual Health and Hygiene Education in Telangana State. P&G has also donated 1.3 lakh of sanitary napkins to the government.

P&G’s manufacturing site in Hyderabad is also leading the way in raising the bar for gender diversity within the company. It was one of the few manufacturing sites in India that allowed female employees to work on all shifts.

The Hyderabad site is fully committed to environmental sustainability. Last year it also became the first P&G site in India to install an internal solar power plant. The site is also “zero manufacturing waste to landfill”, which means that no manufacturing waste is sent to landfill.
