The Facility processes 12 containers per week or 624 (40') sea containers per year of Fresh Pineapple. This translates into approximately 1,920,000 pounds of Fresh Pineapple per month with a cull rate of less than 20% yielding an 80% Efficiency for the operation.

The Facility is located on an 8 hectare piece of land with room to grow as the fresh cut value added sector grows at an astonishing 10-15% per year. The plant is currently running at 50% of capacity.

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C.
