Nestlé to invest €6.5m in white chocolate production in Italy

Nestlé is set to invest €6.5 million in white chocolate production at its Perugina plant in San Sisto, Italy. The investment will see the facility become the sole producer of the Galak and Milkybar white chocolate brands for the European market. According to Nestlé, the move will "modernise" the white chocolate production line, which is set to be operational by mid-2024. "In particular, the packaging phase of the bars will be strengthened with more advanced and high-performance technology," said the food giant. Nestlé expects a 15% increase in production volumes for the white chocolate bar line starting in 2025, compared to current production. Marco Travaglia, president and CEO of Nestlé in Italy, said: “The San Sisto plant plays an increasingly central role in the growth strategy of Nestlé, as demonstrated by this new investment in the white chocolate line, which will contribute to making the factory even more competitive within the group on an international level." He continued: "The extraordinary capabilities of the plant are confirmed as being able to respond to both local and international needs in a brilliant way". You may also like to read:
