Nestle UK’s new and improved coffee factory at Tutbury in Derbyshire has been officially opened. Following a £325 million investment, the factory has seen a major transformation over the last few years and for the first time in the UK houses all forms of coffee production including freeze dried, spray dried and pod technology brought together on one site creating a Coffee Centre of Excellence.

As a major employer in the local area, there are currently 1000 people in highly skilled jobs in manufacturing and engineering, with 23 apprentices and nine graduates currently working at the site; following the investment an additional 425 jobs were created.

At Tutbury, over 1.8 billion Nescafé Dolce Gusto coffee capsules were produced in 2015, 85% of which were exported to 70 markets including Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico and the US.

The official opening follows the launch of Nestlé UK’s insights into addressing the productivity agenda. ‘Productivity in Practice’ is a series of insights which show links between productivity gains through investment in new technology and sustained improvements by the Company’s people at all levels.

Dame Fiona Kendrick, chairman and chief executive of Nestlé UK and Ireland, says: “We are taking the UK’s productivity challenge incredibly seriously at Nestlé and this investment has made Tutbury one of our best examples of that. We have made processes more efficient, given our employees new skills and equipped them with state-of-the-art machinery with which to do their job.”
