Nestlé Mexico is to invest 100 million pesos ($5.25m) in its Lácteos Lagos de
Moreno factory in order to double its milk capacity in the region.

The company will install six 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 per cent the time of receipt of this raw material. Currently this factory
collects 16 per cent 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.”
