Nestlé will triple its production of infant formula with the opening of its new factory in Jalisco, Mexico. At a total cost of SFr245 million (US$245 million), Nestlé Nantli becomes Nestlé’s biggest investment in infant nutrition worldwide in the last ten years.

The plant in Ocotlán will create 250 direct and 1,250 indirect jobs, as part of Nestlé’s commitment to invest over SFr1 billion in Mexico. Production is driven by the latest environmental technology including 100% waste water treatment and renewable energy from wind generation and solar power.

“The opening of Nestlé Nantli is a major global milestone for our company. It uses the most advanced technology for manufacturing the highest quality child nutrition products, such as NAN, Good Care, Good Start, Nidal and Nestogeno. The factory also gives a boost to local economy by purchasing 560 million liters of fresh milk and 365 million liters of whey per year from 400 milk manufacturers from the region,” says Heiko Schipper, Global CEO of Nestlé Nutrition.

In addition to supplying Mexico, around 40% of production will be exported to Latin America, the Caribbean and other regions around the world. The new plant will triple the current production capacity in Mexico.

“Celebrating 150 years of the company around the world, and our 86 years in Mexico, we are very pleased to open Nestlé Nantli, specialized in child nutrition” says Laurent Freixe. “US$245 million is the biggest investment made by Nestlé in Mexico in a single infrastructure project, which represents our commitment to the country, its people and to our consumers.”
