Nestlé has opened a $22 million plant at its factory in Sheikhupura, Pakistan. The Nestlé Fruita Vitals Plant will manufacture the company’s range of juices, nectars and drinks with a production capacity of 24,000 units per hour.
“Nestlé’s recent investment is a testament to our continuous trust in Pakistan and its growth potential,” said Samer Chedid, chief executive of Nestlé Pakistan. “We are also excited about integrating our Chaunsa value chain. We are procuring Chaunsa mangoes from the 110 farms that we introduced interventions at to improve their yield’s quantity and quality. This integration demonstrates our Creating Shared Value approach in which we ensure that our activities and products are making a positive difference to society while contributing to Nestlé’s ongoing success.”
Nestlé Pakistan is headquartered in Lahore, with four production facilities across the country. Factories in Sheikhupura and Kabirwala are multi-product, whereas the ones in Islamabad and Karachi are water factories.
