Nestlé invests in Russian pet food factory

Nestlé will invest more than CHF 38m to double pet food production at its Purina PetCare factory in Russia’s Kaluga region. The investment in the new manufacturing building at the factory follows the installation of a new production line earlier this year. Creating around 60 new jobs, it will enable the factory to produce almost the entire range of Purina pet food products for sale in Russia, and for export to other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries. Laurent Freixe, executive vice president for Nestlé and head of Zone Europe, revealed the expansion plans at an inauguration ceremony for the factory’s recently opened distribution centre. He said: “The new production line at the Vorsino factory has already expanded the range of products produced here, while the new distribution centre is ensuring their improved delivery all over Russia. With this latest investment, we expect to double wet pet food production within the next three years.” Source: Nestlé
