Alfa Laval, a world leader in heat transfer, separation and fluid handling, has announced it has been awarded a contract with one of India’s leading international groups in the brewing industry.

 

The order, to the tune of around €6.5million, is scheduled to be delivered in 2016 and was placed with Alfa Laval’s Food Service Technology & Life segment.

It proves our position as a reliable supplier.”
