Nestlé is to invest $1 billion in Mexico, building two new factories in the country, which is the sixth largest global market for the company. The five-year investment will fund a new infant nutrition factory in Ocotlán, in western Mexico’s Jalisco state, and a petfood factory in the city of Silao, in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato. It will also be used to expand Nestlé’s cereal factory in Lagos de Moreno, also in Guanajuato state, with state-of-the-art technology, making it the company’s largest in the region.

“This investment is a striking example of our commitment to Mexico, and our long-term vision in a market with high growth potential,” says Paul Bulcke, chief executive of Nestlé.

The investment will facilitate the creation of 700 direct and 3,500 indirect jobs, as well as bolstering the amount of raw materials purchased locally.

The factories in Mexico, the second largest market inLatin America for Nestlé, will also produce goods for the wider region. Some 40% of the products made at the new infant nutrition factory in Ocotlán, for example, will be exported to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Nestlé has been present in Mexico for eight decades and today offers a portfolio of more than 80 brands and a range of 1,600 products.
