Switzerland: Coffee Production Nestlé Nespresso to Install New Coffee Production Lines for 43.2 Million Dollars
Nestlé Nespresso announced a $ 43.2 million investment in the creation of two new production lines in its factory in Romont, Switzerland to meet growing demand for the coffee system Vertuo.
Lausanne/Switzerland — The company has also inaugurated a state-of-the-art innovation centre consisting of Product Development Center and Coffee Campus to drive global innovation and coffee expertise. The Product Development Center is dedicated to developing new Nespresso machines and Grand Cru coffees, including unique coffees from rare origins. In addition, with its small-scale production facility it enables experimentation to provide new and different coffee experiences to consumers. The Coffee Campus functions as a training center that will continuously raise the level of expertise within the company and among external partners such as chefs. The two units were created to bolster the company’s work in innovating sustainable, quality coffee. The investment is to create 33 additional jobs in the next two years.
The food company opened its third factory in Switzerland, in Romont, in 2015, which represented a $ 302 million investment. It has already invested an additional $ 48.3 million to expand production capacity and create the Product Development Center and the Coffee Campus. The Romont factory is the primary production site for Nespresso Vertuo, an portioned coffee system delivering a variety of sizes of high quality coffees, from 40 ml to 414 ml.
The producer has identified coffee as a strong growth driver and the coffee business has seen positive organic growth over the past years. The company announced that it was making further investment to lead in the coffee business, creating value for its brands and making a difference for consumers.
