Nestlé invests USD 340 million in new Nescafé coffee factory in Mexico

Nestlé has opened a new Nescafé coffee factory in Veracruz, Mexico. With an investment of USD 340 million, the plant creates 1,200 new jobs in the region and makes Mexico Nestlé's main coffee producer globally.

Special guest Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the President of Mexico, attended the factory's opening event. He commented, "With the inauguration of this plant, Nestlé is supporting close to 100,000 coffee producers in Mexico. This demonstrates the importance of the public and private sectors working together to bring investment to our country."

The new factory leverages state-of-the-art equipment and green energies to reduce water and energy consumption. It uses wastewater treatment systems to ensure 100% of water recirculation, zero wastewater discharges and zero waste to landfills. And it consumes 100% green electricity and is equipped with a biomass boiler that will use the biological waste from the coffee process to generate energy.

"The coffee factory is one of the most technologically advanced in the world and our company's most modern and sustainable coffee plant," said Fausto Costa, Executive President of Nestlé Mexico. "At Nestlé, sustainability is a fundamental pillar of our purpose, and we are committed to taking actions that have a positive impact on our planet."

Through the Nescafé Plan, coffee growers from whom Nestlé sources have access to the advice of specialists. Nestlé's global initiative supports the sustainable production and supply of green coffee, strengthens small producers' production capacity and promotes the economic and social development of their families and communities. The Nescafé supply chain comprises 80,000 Mexican coffee growers, and Nestlé has pledged to ensure that by 2025, 100% of the coffee it purchases is responsibly sourced.
