BHUTAN FRUIT PRODUCTS PVT. LIMITED is a leading medium scale industrial unit located in the heart of Samtse Dzongkhag. It is registered under the Company’s Act of the Kingdom of Bhutan. This unit was initially established in 1959 under the name “Food Preservation Factory” and was run by the State Trading Corporation of Bhutan. The management of the factory was subsequently handed over to an industrialist who was running the Distillery Unit in Samtse, during 1966. This unit was registered as BHUTAN FRUIT PRODUCTS LIMITED, under a Royal Charter granted by His Majesty the King of Bhutan on 23rd October, 1973. The management of the unit since then has been lying with M/s TASHI COMMERCIAL CORPORATION, a reputed business organization based in Phuentsholing. This factory processes fruits and vegetables based products under the brand name “DRUK”.


BFPPL made steady progress in the business and was able to increase its annual turnover from Nu. 50 Lacs in 1973 to Nu. 11 Crores in 2001 and Nu. 14 crores in 2008. The company was able to register continuous profits during this period and has been contributing substantially to the country’s exchequer in the form of Bhutan Sales Tax, Custom’s duty and corporate Income Tax and by also earning hard currency through its exports to Bangladesh.

bfppl_img2Currently, the factory is working manually with semi-automatic machineries. It has both a coal-fired as well as a diesel operated boiler to meet the steam requirements. The diesel-fired boiler was commissioned in July 2009 as per the directive of the National Environment Commission.

To ensure the welfare and safety of the workers and maintain the hygiene and healthy atmosphere of the factory, a senior personnel with support-staff have been designated to supervise and organize whatever is required (as Focal person of the company). All the workers have been provided with hygiene and safety gears. They have been provided with First Aid Medical facility at the factory and are subjected to periodical medical check-ups at Samtse Hospital and issued with Medical Fitness Certificates by a competent doctor every six months.  The factory takes special care to ensure that under-aged as well as over-aged workers are not recruited into the work force.


The BFPPL has a team of dedicated hard-working staff at different grade levels. The factory employs about 350-400 workers on a daily basis during peak season. Female workers constitute the main labour force, who are capable of handling processing works of fruits and vegetables in a very systemic way.  All the day workers have been trained in food handling practices by the Bhutan Agriculture & Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) and some of the workers have already been issued with Food Handlers License.  As per BAFRA’s requirement, the BFPPL now recruits only day workers having valid Food Handlers’ License.


“DRUK” brand of fruit products is not only popular within Bhutan, but is also a popular brand in India, successfully competing with other popular brands of fruit products in the Indian market.  About 80% of the manufactured products are supplied to India and Bangladesh where the “DRUK” brand has also earned its popularity.  The rest is marketed within Bhutan.
