The move will ‘modernise’ the white chocolate production line, which is set to be operational by mid-2024
The food giant Nestle is set to invest €6.5 million in white chocolate production at its Perugina plant in San Sisto, Italy. The investment will see the facility become the sole producer of the Galak and Milkybar white chocolate brands for the European market.
According to Nestlé, the move will ‘modernise’ the white chocolate production line, which is set to be operational by mid-2024.
Nestle further added “In particular, the packaging phase of the bars will be strengthened with more advanced and high-performance technology. We expect a 15 per cent increase in production volumes for the white chocolate bar line starting in 2025, compared to current production.” Marco Travaglia, president and CEO, of Nestlé, Italy, said: “The San Sisto plant plays an increasingly central role in the growth strategy of Nestlé, as demonstrated by this new investment in the white chocolate line, which will contribute to making the factory even more competitive within the group on an international level.”
