Nestle Malaysia Bhd expects to produce 80 percent more coffee powder to 11,000 tonnes per annum at its newly expanded facility in Shah Alam, reported the Star daily, quoting Managing Director Sullivan O’Carroll.

“This would translate into an equivalent of 6.5 billion cups of Nescafe a year with approximately 50 percent of the product exported and the remaining 50 percent for local consumption,” he told reporters at the inauguration ceremony for the plant yesterday.

“The expansion will allow us to not only increase capacity but introduce new technologies to make better products and improve manufacturing efficiencies,” he said, adding that the company spent RM110mil on the upgrade.

Meanwhile, Nestle SA executive vice-president Jose Lopez said the upgraded coffee plant in Shah Alam would eventually join the list of more than 20 Nescafe factories around the world that are currently using spent coffee grounds as renewable fuel, reducing the need for landfills.

“This new coffee plant will feature Nestle’s standard of environment-friendly manufacturing practices such as incineration of spent coffee grounds, which becomes a source of renewable energy, reduction of air emission, and recycling of processed water to reduce water discharge,” he said.

Nestle also has coffee plants in Thailand, Indonesia, the Phillipines and Vietnam.
