Since its construction in 1968, the Girona factory has become one of the largest coffee factories within Nestlé, serving the Iberian market and exporting significant volumes to Europe, America, Asia, Africa and Oceania. In order to increase the plant's competitiveness in the medium and long term, the Nestle Group has decided to invest 100 million euros over the next 3 years to reinforce the manufacture of single-dose capsules and the production and filling of soluble coffee, with Spray Dry technology.
The investment also implies the installation of state-of-the-art technology that, combined with automation and digital technology, will accelerate the improvement of sustainability and logistics.
Jordi Jaén, director of the Nestlé factory in Girona, states that: “we are very proud to attract this investment to the Girona factory in recognition of the professional qualifications and skills of the human team. In addition, it represents a step forward in the consolidation of the factory as the Group's benchmark plant”.
The investment will also involve an increase in production capacity, which will make it possible to maintain the current level of employment in the factory and, at the same time, create new job opportunities in the coming years; despite the fact that the reorganization of some activities will lead to the closure of the decaffeinated coffee manufacturing area.
