Nestle is investing £110 million in its Nescafe Dolce Gusto factory in the UK, creating 300 new jobs and tripling coffee capsule production. The investment will expand the factory, located in Tutbury in Derbyshire, and its workforce. It is the latest in a series of multi-million pound investments Nestle has made in the UK over the last five years.

 

These include £200 million to transform its confectionery factory inYork, £40 million to create a European centre of excellence for Nescafe Cappuccino in Cumbria, and most recently, £35 million to build a new water bottling factory in Buxton.

 

“We are creating our next generation of world class competitive manufacturing facilities,” says Paul Grimwood, chairman and chief executive of Nestle UK and Ireland. “We need to continue to innovate to remain ahead of the market and are committed to the ongoing modernisation of ourUKmanufacturing capabilities.” Nestle employs about 7,000 staff across 19 sites in theUK.

 

The factory workforce at Tutbury has grown from 160 to 500 employees since 2006 and will increase to 800 by 2013, following the expansion of the site. Some of the 300 new employees at Tutbury will form part of the first intake of the ‘Nestle Academy’. This new initiative will offer young people apprenticeships, graduate programmes and on the job training to help them build a lasting career with Nestle.

 

The factory in Tutbury is one of only two production sites for Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee capsules in the world. The other is located in Girona, Spain.

More than 90% of the capsules will be exported to more than 38 countries around the world. They will also be sold in the UK. Nestle has invested more than £100 million in the factory over the past five years to strengthen its position as a leading Nescafe production site.
