Environmentally Friendly Facility, Product Reformulation Improves Nutritional Value for Consumers

ANDERSON, Ind., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Nestle today launched its largest ready-to-drink aseptic products factory in the world in Anderson, Indiana, with production dedicated to meet growing U.S. consumer demand for Nestle Nesquik Ready-to-Drink and Nestle Coffee-Mate Liquid products.

As the world's foremost nutrition, health and wellness company, Nestle continually works to rejuvenate its product line to improve nutritional values and meet the demands of consumers around the world. The aseptic reformulation of the two products has effectively reduced their sugar content.

"Our Anderson facility gives us a unique platform to leverage our nutrition, health and wellness strategy in the United States. It will allow us to create and develop new and innovative ranges of healthy and nutritious beverage products and bring them to market," said Nestle CEO Paul Bulcke. "We've made our products better for the consumers, and with this facility, better for the environment."

The Anderson factory has applied for LEED certification, meaning the facility meets a suite of standards for environmentally sustainable construction as determined by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). It also has improved recyclability of resin packaging, a wastewater recovery system for reuse in cooling towers, and uses low-emission natural gas boilers.

"In a span of five years, Nestle will have invested USD 529 million in this facility," said Nestle USA Chairman & CEO Brad Alford. "When it's finished in 2011, the Anderson facility will have created more than 500 local jobs in a tough economy. This is our fourth investment in Indiana in the past two years -- twice in Anderson, once in Greenwood and once in Fort Wayne."

Between August 2006 and June 2008, Nestle invested USD 359 million to construct an 880,000 square-foot factory, bringing over 400 jobs to Anderson. This is Nestle's largest single capital investment in its history. Last August, the company announced it would invest USD 170 million to expand the facility to more than one million square feet by 2011, while adding more jobs in the process.

Nestle employs over 35,000 people in the United States and operates 81 different manufacturing sites. Total U.S. sales for 2008 were close to USD 28 billion out of the company's global sales of almost USD 100 billion.
