A subsidiary of Singapore-based conglomerate Fraser & Neave is building an “integrated” food and beverage manufacturing facility, which will also serve as an innovation centre.

F&N Foods is spending SGD80m (US$59m) on the 375,000 sq ft plant housed on the north of the island state in Tuas, across the strait from Malaysia, and is due for completion late in 2021, according to a statement.

The facility will “expand F&N Singapore’s capabilities across all aspects from production and warehousing to research and development, and enable F&N to consolidate most of its Singapore non-alcoholic beverages operations under one roof, thereby achieving operational synergies and economies of scale”, the statement read.

In the food segment, F&N produces fresh and canned milk under brands such as Magnolia and Farmhouse, soya beverages, nutritional snack bars and yogurt. 

F&N describes the plant as a “smart factory” that will support its ambitions to become the leading food and beverage manufacturer in Asean. The facility will also serve to strengthen the company’s research and development capabilities.
