Nestlé Professional, the Nestlé business that supplies the food services industry, is investing Eur40 million to extend its Davigel factory in Noyal-Pontivy, France. The investment, which will create 90 permanent jobs, will enable the company to further develop its range of nutritionally balanced meals for hospital patients.

Davigel, a leading provider of frozen and chilled food solutions, already supplies meals to a number of hospitals and healthcare institutions in France, where more than 990 million meals are served to patients every year.

“We pride ourselves on continuous innovation,” says Jean-Marie Gurné, head of Nestlé Professional Business-to-Business.“Davigel already offers nearly 3,000 products and is constantly renovating its portfolio. This investment will help provide an even greater variety of high-quality, nutritious products to satisfy our customers’ expectations.”

Davigel was founded in 1963 and is now present in 10 countries in Europe and beyond. In 2012 it achieved a turnover of Eur783 million (more than SFr900 million). The company is based in France, where it employs more than 3,000 people and operates three factories.
