Nestle Continues to Develop its Operations in Chile

Nestle has invested more than SFr127 million ($140 million) in a new factory in Chile as part of its continued commitment to developing its operations in the country. The factory will produce a range of milk products and ingredients with added nutritional value for domestic consumption and for export to the United States, Central America, the Middle East and Asia.

When fully operational, the factory will have a production capacity of 30,000 tonnes of milk powder, enabling Nestle to meet increased demand for dairy products that offer a nutritional ‘plus’. One of the most technologically advanced dairy factories of its kind in the world, it will provide 300 direct jobs and 1,500 indirect jobs.

As with Nestle’s other dairy factories around the world, the new manufacturing site is situated in a rural area close to the dairy farms that supply it with fresh milk. This not only enables Nestle to trade directly with farmers, but also to provide them with technical assistance and training to improve milk production and quality.

In Chile, Nestle sells a range of local brands including Savory ice cream, Sahne-Nuss chocolate and McKay biscuits, alongside internationally recognised brands such as Nescafe and Maggi. In 2010 the company opened its first Research and Development Centre in South America in the Chilean capital Santiago. The centre leads Nestle’s global research and development efforts for biscuits and cereal-based snacks.
