The launch of Yili Indonesia Dairy will help to add fresh momentum to the 
regional economic recovery from the global pandemic. Together with the Yili 
Thailand Production Base, Yili Indonesia Dairy will be one of the company's 
"dual centers" in Southeast Asia, serving local needs while also aiming to 
expand into neighboring markets throughout the region. 

Due to growing demand, Yili Indonesia Dairy is set up to expand its production 
capacity. Phase I has a full capacity of 159 tons per day. After Phase II is 
completed, the total capacity will more than double to reach 343 tons per day, 
or 4 million units of ice cream. The expanded capacity will help to provide a 
diversified range of products to fulfill local demand.

A Highly Localized Modern Factory to Facilitate Sustainable Development

Based in West Java of Indonesia, Yili Indonesia Dairy fully integrates Yili

It brings together cutting-edge production facilities and innovation engines to 
provide a fresh boost to the Southeast Asian market. The Yili Southeast Asia 
Innovation Center will work closely with local R&D institutions and Yili 
innovation centers across the globe to roll out innovative products that are 
carefully tailored to consumers' needs. 

Yili Indonesia Dairy strictly adheres to Yili's sustainable development 
guidelines and local standards. A wastewater treatment system was built with a 
daily treatment capacity of 2,800 tons. Reclaimed water is then used for the 
irrigation of plants in the factory.

To date, a total of 383 employees have joined Yili Indonesia Dairy, with local

reports operating revenue of RMB 85 billion in the first three quarters of 
2021. Yili is on the way to achieve a historic breakthrough of RMB 100 billion 
in total revenue this year. Yili Indonesia Dairy will generate even greater 
momentum behind the company's strong and sustainable growth on its journey 
towards becoming a leading global dairy enterprise.
