Nestlé invests 120 million dollars in Dubai factory

Nestlé is investing 120 million dollars in a new manufacturing facility in Dubai to produce coffee and culinary products to cater for rising demand throughout the Middle East, the company said. The new facility will be built on a 175,000 square metre plot and will provide employment for 400 people.

According to Nestlé, it is building the new factory to provide fresher products for consumers in the Middle East and better cater for local tastes. The facility will start producing culinary products at the end of 2015, and coffee products in early 2016.

Nestlé Middle East’s heritage goes back 80 years to 1934 when the first import operation was set up in Lebanon. Today, Nestlé Middle East owns and operates 18 factories and provides direct employment to more than 11,000 people and indirect employment to several thousand more.

The Nestlé portfolio in the region currently exceeds 60 product brands in a wide range of categories: dairy products, infant nutrition, bottled water, chocolate, confectionery, coffee creamers, breakfast cereals and others.
