Nestlé reveals £200m investment in UK coffee factories

Nestlé UK has unveiled proposals for a further £200m extension to its Nescafé factory in Tutbury, Derbyshire (UK).

This is a new stage in the transformation of the Tutbury factory, in addition to the £110m extension to the Nescafé Dolce Gusto facility at the site announced in November 2011.

For the first time in the UK all forms of coffee production including freeze dried, spray dried and pod technology, would be brought together on one site.

It is proposed that production at Nestlé’s coffee factory in Hayes will transfer to Tutbury, leading to the eventual closure of the Hayes site in 2014.  The Hayes factory plays a vital role in Nescafé production.  However, it is not feasible to redevelop the Hayes site to create the manufacturing facility Nestlé UK needs for the future.

Paul Grimwood, chairman and CEO Nestlé UK & Ireland, said: “Over the next three years, we are investing £500m to establish our next generation of world class manufacturing facilities in the UK. The proposed restructuring announced today, which will bring all our coffee manufacturing together at Tutbury, is a key part of this overall investment programme.
