Consumer goods giant Nestle has announced the expansion of three factories in Indonesia through a $100 million investment.
Upgrades to the three factories, located in Karawang (West Java), Kejayan (East Java) and Panjang (Lampung) will increase Nestle’s current production capacity in the country by 25%, the company said.
“We recognize an increasingly conducive business opportunity in Indonesia, coupled with the growing consumer demand towards Nestle’s nutritious and high-quality food and beverage products”, commented Dharnesh Gordhon, president director of Nestle Indonesia. “Producing value added products has been one of our efforts to enhance quality of life and continue to contribute to a healthier future for Indonesians”.
The investment is intended to build new production lines for liquid drinks such as Milo and Nescafe Ready-to-Drink, Bear Brand pure sterilised milk and Maggi seasoning.
