Nestle Expands Russian Coffee Factory

Nestle Expands Russian Coffee Factory

Nestle has completed a SFr240 million (Eur195 million) expansion of its soluble coffee factory in Timashevsk, Russia. Located in the Krasnodar region, the site is Nestle’s largest soluble coffee factory in Europe. It is also the company’s biggest investment project in Russia so far.

 

The factory uses advanced freeze-dry technology to make Nescafe coffee products for consumption in the Russian market and for export to other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries. Nescafe is the leading soluble coffee brand in Russia; the world’s biggest market for soluble coffee.

 

The expansion of the Timashevsk site, announced in 2008, has equipped the factory to produce Nescafe Gold freeze-dried coffee from raw material processing through to packing. It will also produce other soluble coffee products including Nescafe Gold Mild, Nescafe Gold Strong, and Nescafe Montego.

 

The factory, which employs 1,200 people, was alreadyRussia’s first “full-cycle” production site for soluble coffee. It has produced Nescafe Classic coffee ever since the first phase of its construction was completed in 2005.

 

“This factory is a perfect example of our long-term commitment to Russia and its consumers. It highlights our ongoing investment in the country,” says Paul Bulcke, chief executive of Nestle. “We have invested more than one billion US dollars (around SFr885 million) into manufacturing and distribution facilities in Russia over the past 15 years.”

 

Russia plays an important role in Nestle’s European operations, particularly in central and eastern Europe. The company’s brands in the country include Comilfo, Nescafe, Mega, Maggi, Perrier and Purina.

 

Currently, Nestle Russia employs more than 10,000 people and operates 12 production sites, ten sales offices and ten distribution centres. In August this year, the company announced it will invest more than SFr38 million to double pet food production at its Purina PetCare factory in Russia’s Kaluga region. This followed an investment of SFr60 million in 2010 in a new factory for Maggi products in the Vladimir region. The first phase of construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2011.
