Vasant Masala, the spices brand of Gujarat for the past 52 years, has started production from its new plant facility at Dehgam in Gujarat. The ultra-modern plant is equipped with fully-automated technology and processes. It can produce a wider range of spices without any kind of human intervention.
The plant has the capacity to produce and process 1,800 MT of spices per month. The brand follows a strict quality process through an in-house laboratory for quality tests and regulations at each stage of the production. The research and development team at Vasant consistently strives to raise the benchmark of product quality with the help of highly qualified and experienced professionals, a world-class lab, and state-of-the-art equipment across the phases of production, that is raw material, in-process, and finished product. The entire plant is now on full automation (untouched-by-hand), which helps provide bacteria-free final products.
Proper storage of spices is crucial to retain their aroma and taste for a longer period of time. It is critical to ensure that the spices are kept at an appropriate temperature, and in hygienic conditions. Speaking on the occasion, Chandrakant Bhandari, the chairman and managing director, commented, “Purity is one crucial attribute and we are committed to delivering purest and unadulterated Indian spices. From the procurement itself, we buy only natural ingredients and follow compliances as per the global standards.”
