ANDERSON, IND. — Nestle has launched its largest ready-to-drink aseptic products factory in Anderson, Ind. The facility is designed to meet the growing U.S. consumer demand for Nestle Nesquik ready-to-drink and Nestle Coffee-Mate liquid products.
"Our Anderson facility gives us a unique platform to leverage our nutrition, health and wellness strategy in the United States," said Paul Bulcke, chief executive officer. "It will allow us to create and develop new and innovative ranges of healthy and nutritious beverage products and bring them to market. We’ve made our products better for the consumers and with this facility better for the environment."
The facility is 880,000 square feet, and the company has applied for LEED certification for the facility. By 2011 the company will have invested $529 million in the facility.
