September 01, 2015
JK Paper is reportedly planning to increase its local raw material sourcing to two fold for its Rayagada unit in south Odisha in the coming two to three years. The company is hopeful of achieving the same through a massive plantation drive spread across 11,000 hectares in and around Rayagada, Koraput and Jeypore in Odisha and also at the Vizianagram and Srikakulam areas in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.
At present, the company’s 40 percent of raw material for Rayagada plant comes from Odisha and eastern Andhra Pradesh and to meet the balance requirement, it is buying from Uttar Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
