[asset_ref id=”543″]

Nestlé has opened a new factory in Vietnam, to optimise its coffee supply chain using measures such as increasing direct purchasing from farmers and providing them with free technical assistance.

“By opening this factory in Vietnam, we will be closer to our consumers and better able to adapt our products to their needs and preferences,” said Wayne England, Nestlé Indochina chairman and chief executive officer, at a ceremony to open the factory in Dong Nai.

The factory will make products for both local consumption and export, to meet growing demand for soluble coffee products in the region.

Nestlé is also working with the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in a public-private partnership to help improve farmers’ productivity by promoting better coffee growing practices.
