Mohali Industrial Economic Zone (MIEZ) has announced that Gopal’s Sweets, the biggest dairy products brand in Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, will set up a manufacturing unit there. The company has invested approximately Rs 150 crore in the project.

MIEZ is an industrial initiative by the Royale Estate Group. It is proving to be a game-changer in transforming the industrial landscape of the Tricity, including Punjab, Haryana, Himachal and Jammu & Kashmir.

Spread over 150 acres with a vision to eventually take it to 500 acres over the next three years, MIEZ’s proximity to an International Airport, the biggest Railway Junction of the region and the Dry Port of Shambhu barrier, augmented by the great advantage of connectivity to all the four states, makes it the best industrial township ever in Tricity.

Gopal’s Sweets Pvt. Ltd managing director Sharanjit Singh says, “With the perishable nature of our products, mainly sweets and other dairy and bakery products, we were looking for the most central and strategic location from where we could serve all the four states within the desirable timelines. We found this huge advantage in the location of MIEZ, where we are now the region’s biggest manufacturing unit for sweets, nankeens, bakery and other milk products, at an investment of approximately Rs 150 cr.”

Another notable industry at MIEZ, which is nearing completion, is a food processing unit spread over 4 acres, with an investment of more than Rs 100 crore. This plant is approved by the Ministry of Food Processing, Government of India. Punjab’s green farm products, such as green peas, cabbage, onions and potatoes, which currently go to Rudrapur in Uttarakhand for processing & packaging, will now no longer have to go to Uttarakhand. This plant at MIEZ will cater for all such operations for the farmers and food growers of Punjab.

“We have more than 50 reputed industries on board who have joined MIEZ and are in the process of setting up their respective industry, ranging from pharmaceuticals, packaging, food processing, agro and agriculture, engineering, tractors and auto parts, metal and bath fittings, machines, furniture, marbles and granites and so on. A few names from these industries are Comments Industry, Zenus Metal Manufacturers, VK Engineering Works, Making Ways Auto Industries, Boparai Auto Industry, Woodcraft, Ruby Industries, Health Guard Packaging Pvt Ltd, Ethnic Biotech, Forgo Pharmaceutical Pvt Ltd, Swastik Lifesciences Pharmaceuticals, Raj Steel Furniture, Woodcraft and many more,” said Ashish Mittal, Director, MIEZ.

Every industry being set up in MIEZ will have all the benefits under Invest. Punjab initiative by Govt of Punjab and under MSME “Make in India” initiative by Govt of India.
