FGV Holdings Bhd (FGV) said its new fresh milk factory in Linggi in Negeri Sembilan will be completed in the first quarter of 2021, according to the company’s press release. The new factory will have the capacity to process 30,000 litres of milk a day.
Dato’ Haris Fadzilah Hassan, Group Chief Executive Officer of FGV said in less than nine months since the inception of the dairy farm project in March 2020, the premium house brand “Bright Cow” has been processing more than 500,000 litres of fresh milk for local consumption, contributed by the fresh milk produced by FGV’s Linggi dairy farm and supplied by external dairy farms.
FGV Dairy Farm Sdn Bhd (FGVDF) has recently received an additional 130 crossbred dairy heifers imported from Australia, which are a hybrid of Jersey and Friesian dairy cattle breeds, amounting to a total of 258 dairy herd size. This shipment of cattle is to fulfill the higher volume of fresh milk production as well as the increase in local demand, especially by the HORECA (Hotel, Restaurant and Cafe) market segment.
Several new Bright Cow product formulations, flavours and packaging are also in the pipeline and are now undergoing product testing and stability tests prior to launch which is targeted to take place in April 2021. Bright Cow dairy products are now available online with no minimum order on www.fgvdairyfarm.com.
