Nestlé to open Malaysian RTD beverage facility

Tuesday, 09 July, 2013

Nestlé has announced plans to build a new factory in Malaysia to meet growing domestic demand for its ready-to-drink beverages.

The company will invest 150 million Malaysian Ringgit (approximately AU$51 million) in a new facility in Shah Alam that will produce ready-to-drink products such as Nescafé, Milo and Nestlé Low Fat Milk. The facility, due for completion in 2014, is expected to create 160 new jobs.

A number of sustainable design features are planned for the factory, such as a rainwater recovery system and ultrahigh-temperature (UHT) processing with built-in heat recovery.

The Milo and Nescafé brands are reportedly market leaders in the Malaysian ready-to-drink category.
