Vevey/Chiapa de Corzo - Nestlé México has opened an expanded, modernized Coffeemate plant in Chiapa de Corzo, in which it has invested 300 million pesos (around 15 million Swiss francs). The plant was established in 1970 and exports to 21 countries worldwide.

After expanding its plant in Chiapa de Corzo, Nestlé México has officially opened its new facilities for the production of Coffeemate, a coffee creamer. According to a press release, Nestlé officials and representatives from the worlds of business and politics, including the Governor of the Mexican state of Chiapas, Rutilio Escandón Cadenas, attended the opening ceremony and tour of the factory.

Nestlé has invested 300 million pesos, or 15.36 million Swiss francs, in the plant, which opened in 1970. This is the biggest investment in the plant’s history, and it has been used to introduce new technologies that promote sustainability, such as waste-free operation, water recovery, integrated management, recycling, and the use of electricity from renewable sources.  Nestlé employs 280 members of staff in Corzo de Chiapa, and aims in particular to offer opportunities to young people, individuals living with disabilities and women.

“Nestlé has achieved the ambitious target of investing 300 million pesos since 2021, in order to improve the long-term capacity of our plant in southeastern Mexico and make it a benchmark for shared value creation at global level,” said Fausto Costa, CEO of Nestlé México.

“It's wonderful to see the results of the commitments that this global company made in 2021, and that date back over 30 years, to promote Chiapa de Corzo in many different countries around the world,” said Governor Rutilio Escandón. He added that Chiapas has everything that companies need to grow.

Coffeemate is exported to 21 countries, including Canada, Chile, Columbia and Ecuador, as well as other Caribbean and Latin American countries. ce/gba
