Nestlé Mexico is set to invest 100 million pesos ($5.25 million) in its Lácteos Lagos de Moreno factory, to double its capacity to receive fresh milk in the region.
The company has made the investment as it aims to install six new unloading bays with a reception capacity of up to 3.6 million litres of milk per day, directly benefiting 450 milk producers and 40 transport lines.
Marco Guimaraes, vice president of technique and manufacturing at Nestlé Mexico said: “The investment that we made in our Nestlé dairy factory in Lagos de Moreno, will allow us to double our capacity to receive milk and thereby reduce up to 80% the time of receipt of this raw material.
Currently this factory collects 16% of the total production of fresh milk from Jalisco, which represents the purchase of 460 million litres of milk and 365 million litres of whey per year
The Lácteos Lagos de Moreno factory receives the highest volume of fresh milk from the 17 factories that the company has in the country, producing brands such as: Nido, Svelty and Nestlé half cream, to meet national demand and also to export to Latin America, Central America and the United States.
