Nestlé Malaysia to set up RTD beverage plant in Shah Alam

DBR Staff Writer Published 09 July 2013

Nestlé is investing MYR150m ($46.8m) to build a new plant in Shah Alam, Malaysia to catch up with the growing demand for its ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages such as Nescafé, Milo and Nestlé Low Fat Milk.

This new facility is expected to be fully operational in 2014 and will create 160 new jobs.

The plant will feature many sustainable design features such as a rain water recovery system to reduce water use and ultra-high-temperature (UHT) processing with built-in heat recovery to reduce energy consumption.

Nestlé executive vice president and operations head José Lopez said that the company is committed to invest in any country across the globe wherever it operates.

"We have been present in Malaysia for more than 100 years and we have confidence in the strength of the Malaysian market," Lopez added.

"We are committed to supplying our consumers here with a range of tastier and healthier products to suit their needs and preferences."

Milo is a brand of chocolate malt beverage that can be prepared with hot or cold milk or water.

Nescafé is a line of RTD canned coffee available in NESCAFÉ Milk Coffee Original, NESCAFÉ Milk Coffee Latte, NESCAFÉ Milk Coffee Mocha, NESCAFÉ Coffee Black Roast, NESCAFÉ MENU Ipoh White Coffee and NESCAFÉ ICE Milk Coffee flavors.
