Yili Group held an opening ceremony to celebrate the official launch of the first phase of the Yili Indonesia Dairy Production Base.
Upon completion of its second phase, the production base will become the country’s largest ice cream factory with a daily production capacity of four million ice cream products.
The state-of-the-art facility was established due to the surging popularity of Joyday ice cream, a brand that has rapidly expanded its reach to 260 local cities in 26 provinces, covering nearly all of Indonesia, since its entry into the market in 2018.
“Local consumers’ clear preference for and trust in our products has reinforced Yili’s confidence about our long-term investment and development in Indonesia,” said Pan Gang, chairman and president of Yili Group, in a virtual speech delivered at the ceremony.
He added: “Yili is always dedicated to following the highest standards to drive quality, sustainable development over the long term and establishing localised operations that benefit the communities where we operate. This ensures that we can better serve local consumers and make deep contributions to socio-economic development throughout the region.”
As Yili’s first self-built plant in Southeast Asia, Yili Indonesia Dairy has adopted cutting-edge technology and equipment, including the Internet of Things and big data analytics, to build an innovative and smart factory. The production base integrates advanced digital technologies throughout its entire production chain. Robotics solutions are introduced to provide automated packing, palletizing, and warehousing.
