Food processing firm Himalya International said it will invest Rs 12 crore in Gujarat for setting a facility for manufacturing canned soup.
The company has entered into an agreement with US-based Wayne Farms for technical collaboration for the plant, which will be operational in October this year.
Himalya International Chairman Manmohan Mallik said that around hundred trained employees would be deployed to run the plant and will get technical training from Wayne Farms.
He added that the plant would process 15 crore cans every year at full capacity and would produce mushroom, tomato and lentil soups under the brand names 'Himalya Fresh' and 'Uno Italiano'.
The company expects to generate revenue of Rs 120 crore by 2014 from the new facility.
