Nestlé is investing Eur44 million (SFr55 million) between 2013 and 2015 on new technology for its Nescafé factory at Girona in north-eastern Spain. The new equipment will deliver greater efficiencies in the production of soluble coffee, while improving the environmental footprint of the factory by significantly reducing water consumption and energy used in the manufacturing process.

“The new technology will make the factory more efficient ensuring its competitiveness in years to come,” says Bernard Meunier, chief executive of Nestle Spain. “

Built in 1968, Girona is the largest Nescafé factory inEurope. In 2008 the factory was chosen as the site for a new production plant for Nescafé Dolce Gusto. More than 650 people are currently employed  in the Girona plant and 250 people in the Nescafé Dolce Gusto plant.

Annually the Girona site processes 80,000 tons of green coffee, more than 1% of the world’s coffee production. 74% of the production at the site is exported to a total of 70 countries around the world.

Nestle employs more than 6,000 people in Spain and operates 12 production sites.
