Nestle Opens €117 Million Infant Formula Factory

Nestle Opens €117 Million Infant Formula Factory

Nestle has opened a new Eur117m factory in Germany dedicated to producing hypoallergenic (HA) infant formula. As an extension of the company’s 106 year old Biessenhofen factory site, the Nestle Nutrition infant formula factory is one of the world’s largest and most modern facilities producing hypoallergenic – or allergy risk reducing – infant formula.

The new 23,000 sq-m factory now doubles its production of Nestle HA infant formula under brands such as Nestle Alete and Nestle Beba. Taking two years to complete, the new factory includes a 23 metre-high ‘spray tower’ that encompasses state-of-the-art technology to produce the HA infant formula. The site also includes thermal insulation and a new cooling system to promote efficient use of energy and water – illustrating Nestle’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

In partnership with the Nestle Research Center in Lausanne, the Product and Technology Centre (PTC) in Konolfingen, the HA production centre in Biessenhofen, and other external collaborations; HA infant formula has been produced at the Biessenhofen factory site since 1987.

Driven by Nestle’s Research and Development, HA infant formula is based on 100% whey protein which is hydrolyzed – or broken down – to reduce the allergenicity of protein found in cow’s milk.

The Biessenhofen factory site – one of three Nestle factories worldwide that produce HA infant formula – also manufactures products such as infant cereals, infant specialties, healthcare products for adults under the brands Alete, Sinlac, or Clinutren, along with products like Thomy and Nescafe Xpress. The factory site exports to over 80 countries and employs around 640 people.
