Nestlé officially opens Dongguan R&D centre in China

Nestlé has officially opened its latest Chinese research and development centre in Dongguan, in Guangdong province.

The centre at Dongguan is a joint venture with Hsu Fu Chi, China's leading confectionery, biscuits and traditional snack manufacturer. The new R&D Centre will focus on research in confectionery and ice cream, building on Nestlé's global R&D strength in these areas to develop more high-quality products for consumers across Asia.

"The establishment of Nestlé Dongguan R&D Centre will further our understanding of Chinese consumers, ingredients and local cuisine, and provide scientific and technological expertise to the rest of the business in Asia and around the world," said Johannes Baensch, Nestlé's global head of R&D.

Nestlé was among the first multinational companies to invest and build factories in Dongguan. Its two other R&D centres in China are in Shanghai and Beijing. Each centre focuses on nutrition and health, targeting consumer needs and conducting research on products, development, innovation and renovation.
