Nestlé starts operations in its new manufacturing facility in Dubai

Back to Press releases
Nestlé Middle East opened a new multi-million dollar facility devoted to manufacturing powdered milk and packaging imported Mackintosh's Quality Street chocolates. The 1.78 million square foot complex, based at TechnoPark, Dubai, also plans to manufacture chocolates and wafers from the newly expanded facility later this year. In addition, Nestlé Pure Life bottled water will also be produced and distributed from the facility.

Yves Manghardt, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé Middle East, said: "The production capacity of the new facility will be more than 100,000 tons per year. We have made enough provision to expand our operations to meet growing market demands for the next few years."

He added: "We have invested more than USD 400 million in the Middle East over the years and the new multi-million dollar manufacturing facility in TechnoPark is another testimonial to our deep commitment in this region."

Nestlé Middle East - which sells brands such as NIDO, KIT KAT, QUALITY STREET, NESCAFÉ and MAGGI - totaled revenue of over USD 1.4 billion in 2009.

With 17 factories and 37 offices in the region, Nestlé Middle East employs over 7,000 across its operations.
