Nestlé Professional, the Nestlé business that supplies the foodservice industry, is investing €40m to extend its Davigel factory in Noyal-Pontivy, France. The investment will create 90 permanent jobs and enable the company to develop its range of nutritionally balanced meals for hospital patients.

Davigel was founded in 1963 and is now present in 10 countries in Europe and beyond. In 2012, it achieved a turnover of €783m. The company is based in France, where it employs more than 3,000 people and operates three factories. The extension to the Noyal-Pontivy factory is due to be completed by late 2014.
