Nestle Purina Petcare is continuing to invest in expanding its manufacturing sites globally. Having spent SFr45 million (Eur37.5 million) last July to exptend its factory in Hungary followed by SFr38 million in its factory in Russia, the global pet food business is now investing more than SFr29 million to expand its factory in New South Wales, Australia.

The investment programme will make the Australian factory one of the most technologically advanced of its kind in the world when work is completed at the end of this year. It includes the installation of new technology and the construction of a 5,400 sq m warehouse on the site.

The factory currently produces around 100,000 tonnes of products a year for domestic consumption and export. These include well-known dog and cat food brands such as Beneful, Pro Plan and Friskies.

Nestle Purina is one of the world’s largest pet food companies, with global sales of more than SFr13 billion in 2010.
