FMCG giant Nestle has announced that it is investing €100 million ($98 million) in a coffee plant in Girona, Spain.
According to sources, the investment will be made over the next three years with the goal of increasing the factory’s medium to long-term competitiveness.
Nestle plans to install state-of-the-art technology that, combined with automation and digital technology, will improve sustainability and logistics, as well as boosting the manufacture of single-dose capsules and soluble coffee made with Spray Dry technology.
Jordi Jaen, director of Nestle’s Girona factory, said: “We are very proud to attract this investment to the Girona factory in recognition of the professional qualifications and skills of the team. In addition, it represents a step forward in the consolidation of the factory as a reference plant for the group”.
The investment will mean an increase in the facility’s overall production capacity, even though Nestle recently ceased the production of decaffeinated coffee at the plant after a reorganisation.
