Nestle Makes Egypt Factory Investment as Appetite For Ice Cream Soars

Nestlé is investing SFr26 million (Eur21 million) at its ice cream factory in Egypt, which is one of the company’s biggest ice cream markets in the world. Nestlé began selling its products in Egypt over 100 years ago. The investment in new manufacturing lines will help meet growing demand for Nestlé and Dolce ice cream brands.

Demand for ice cream has also enabled Nestlé to create an additional new 200 jobs with this year’s investment. Nestlé’s ice cream factory is located some 30 km from Cairo, at 6th of October City.

Ice creams produced there are distributed locally as well as being exported to north-east Africa – to countries including Jordan, Libya, Lebanon, and Tunisia. The factory also produces the super-premium Mövenpick products, exported to Malaysia.

The investment at the ice cream factory also includes the introduction of some of the most advanced food production lines of any of Nestlé’s ice cream plants.

Further significant investments are planned in the coming years to develop the factory’s mixing, processing, chocolate coating and cone filling equipment.

Nestlé began to make ice cream in Egypt in 1988, when it acquired the Cairo-based Industrie Du Froid company and its Kimo ice cream brand.

Some seven years later, Nestlé acquired Dolce Co for Food Industries, based in 6th of October City. In 2001, it merged its ice cream manufacturing operations together.

Today, Nestlé Egypt has three factories and seven distribution centres, and employs more than 3,000 people.
