PT Wilmar Nabati Indonesia, a unit of Singapore-listed Agribusiness giant Wilmar, plans to set up a wheat flour production facility in Indonesia.

The company is currently in the process of constructing the planned production facility, which will have an installed production capacity of 400,000 tons per year, expected to start commercial production in March 2013.

The facility will be located at Wilmar’s industrial center in East Java, said Wilmar Nabati Indonesia Executive Director Taufik Tamin recently. 

Wilmar, which has been mainly operating in the palm oil business in Indonesia, is now turning also into wheat flour production to take advantage of the huge and growing domestic demand, Taufik said.(rei)
