July 18, 2018
Swiss food and beverage giant Nestle inaugurated a new production line at a plant in Vietnam’s Dong Nai province this Wednesday that will process 2500 tn/yr of coffee sourced from local growers, the company announced in a press release.
Coffee processed at the site will be used in the firm’s new Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee capsules. The plant’s output of the product is anticipated to reach 130 million capsules/yr.
“The investment reflects Nestle’s clear focus on high-growth, high-margin categories, including coffee. It also meets the growing trend towards coffee drinking in many countries in Asia,” the company said in its release.
Some 90% of the Vietnam plant’s output will be exported to Indonesia, the Philippines, and other markets in Asia. Nestle said it is the leading customer for Vietnam’s domestic coffee beans, purchasing some 20% to 25% of the country’s beans.
“The new NESCAFE Dolce Gusto production line will help make great coffee widely accessible to Vietnamese consumers and to 13 export markets. Moreover, the new production line reaffirms Nestle Vietnam’s commitment to adding value to and developing Vietnam’s coffee industry,” said Ganesan Ampalavanar, managing director of Nestle Vietnam, in a statement.
Nestle said the new line may be expanded at a later date.
