Nescafé opens capsule factory in Brazil

Nescafé has opened a US$71 million capsule factory in Montes Claros, Brazil. The Nescafé Dolce Gusto facility, the first of its kind outside of Europe, will produce single-serve capsules primarily for Brazil’s domestic market, as well as for export to Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. “This Nescafé Dolce Gusto factory is a strategic long-term investment in Latin America and specifically in Brazil, a county in which we have been present for over 90 years and which has been at the basis of our Nescafé story,” said Nestlé CEO Paul Bulcke. Nestlé intends to source local ingredients – such as coffee, milk, coco and sugar – to manufacture the capsules, in its efforts to support the local economy. It is estimated that Brazil’s new capsule facility will provide more than 90 direct jobs and more than 1000 positions in the wider supply chain. Image credit: Nescafé Global website
