Alcohol

As backward integration of IMFL business and also forward integration of Sugar business, the Group currently has two Alcohol Plants.

Alcohol Plant (Molasses based), Andhra Pradesh

One is part of the Sugar Plant at Naidupet (AP) which is molasses based, with a capacity to produce 30,000 litres of Rectified Spirit and Extra Neutral Alcohol per day. Besides, in conjunction, an Ethanol manufacturing Plant of 30,000 litres per day is also in operation to cater to the needs of Oil Marketing Companies.

Alcohol Plant (Grain based), Andhra Pradesh

The second Plant, established by Empee Distilleries Ltd, is a Grain Based Extra Neutral Alcohol Plant, set up at Choutkur, Medak Dist, A P., in the year 2013. This state-of-the art manufacturing facility, with best of the equipments selected from reputed suppliers, has a capacity of 64 Kilo Litres per day. The Plant is designed to have efficient utilisiaton of services like steam, water, power etc, and has a most modern water recycling plant to achieve zero discharge of water. The Plant has built-in flexibility to utilise broken Rice, Maize, Shorghum and Bajra which are abundantly available in the region. The objective behind this Plant is to provide Extra Neutral Alcohol with better sensory values, much higher than conventional ENA produced from Molasses. Grain ENA is normally preferred for premium IMFL brands and with many multi-national brands setting up their own bottling Units in the country, the ENA produced here is assured of ready market at all times.

The Group has planned setting up two more IAPs shortly: One at Ambasamudram based on Molasses from own Sugar Plant, as part of forward integration of Sugar business and the Other in the neighbouring District, again Molasses based and as a part of backward integration of IMFL business.
