He further added “India is an important market for MONIN – not only in terms of its untapped commercial potential, but also because of the thrill of serving a country already brimming with diversity, talent and innovation. This facility will help us in our expansion plans and also to achieve our goal of providing premium beverage solutions to our partners worldwide.”
