Nestle SA : Nestlé invests 31 million dollars in pet food factory in Australia

05/16/2012 | 04:57am EDT

PASSION FOR PETS: Nestlé Purina sells pet food and pet care products in more than 100 countries.

Nestlé Purina PetCare is investing 31 million Australian dollars (more than CHF 29 million) to expand its pet food factory in the state of New South Wales.

The investment programme will make the factory one of the most technologically advanced of its kind in the world when work is completed at the end of this year.

It includes the installation of new technology and the construction of a 5,400 square metre warehouse on the site.

The factory, located in the town of Blayney, currently produces around 100,000 tonnes of products a year for domestic consumption and export.

These include well-known dog and cat food brands such as Beneful, Pro Plan and Friskies.

Nestlé Purina is one of the world's largest pet food companies, with global sales of more than CHF 13 billion in 2010.

Long-term commitment

"This latest investment reflects our long-term commitment to our operations in New South Wales," said David Grant, General Manager for Nestlé Purina PetCare in Australia.

"It will not only boost future product development, but it also brings the factory and its technological capabilities into the 21st century.

"This site is now at the forefront of global manufacturing innovation in our company."

Biggest employer

The factory has become the town of Blayney's biggest employer since it opened in 1990.

Today, the factory employs more than 200 people and sources more than 80% of its raw materials from within Australia.

Global manufacturing excellence

The multi-million dollar investment in Australia is the latest of several Nestlé Purina has made in its manufacturing sites around the world over the past 18 months.

In July last year the company invested CHF 45 million to expand its factory in Hungary, and followed by CHF 38 million in its factory in Russia in August.
