Nestlé Vietnam will invest $100m to double the processing capacity of its Tri An coffee facility in Dong Nai, bringing its total investment in the site to more than $500m.
In a press release, Nestlé said the investment will enable it to meet increasing domestic demand for its premium coffee brands while further shifting Vietnam towards a high-value coffee production and supply centre for the global market.
The Tri An production site currently exports Nescafé, Nespresso, Starbucks and Blue Bottle packaged coffee products to more than 29 countries.
“The project is a testament to Nestlé's long-term investment commitment in Vietnam. It is expected that when the project comes into operation, the factory’s capacity will double, meeting the domestic market’s consumer demand and effectively exploiting the export potential, making Vietnam a supply centre, supplying high-value coffee to the world,” said Jacob Binu, General Director of Nestlé Vietnam.
Nestlé began trading in Vietnam in 1993 with a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City. The Nestlé Tri An site was launched in 2013, with a Nescafé Dolce Gusto capsule production line inaugurated in 2018.
Vevey-based Nestlé has invested nearly $830m into its Vietnamese business to-date and operates four production sites – three of which are in Dong Nai – alongside two distribution centers.
