Rangwasa cluster to house 50 confectionery industries in Madhya Pradesh

Indore, Mar 28 (KNN) More than 50 confectionery industries are expected to come up at the confectionery cluster at Rangwasa in Madhya Pradesh, according to a report in the TOI.

As per reports, around 6 confectionery units have begun operation, while some allottees are expected to start production by mid of the new fiscal year. Of those who started production in the cluster, three are new industries while others are existing units that have expanded facilities at the cluster.


The newly developed confectionery cluster at Rangwasa is spread across 28.6 hectare.

Indore Confectionery Manufacturers Association president Dinesh Choudhary said, “Around 6-7 units have gone into production in the cluster and some have started the construction work. Around 50 confectionery industries will come up in the cluster.”

Indore is a hub for confectionery units engaged in making candies, lollipops, chocolates and other sugary items with interiors and rural areas being the major markets for locally made confectionery items.

The local confectionery industry is sceptical about expanding operations due to the rising cost of production due to hike in prices of ingredients and competition from other states.

“Many traditional buyers of locally made confectionery have reduced orders because of price war with local units and this has affected sales of Indore-based manufacturers,” the association president said.

The Rangwasa cluster is expected to help reduce the cost of production and help the local industry expand its reach to new markets.

Confectionery items manufactured in Indore are supplied to other states, including West Bengal, Maharashtra, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.  (KNN Bureau)
