Nestlé Mexico doubles milk capacity in Lagos de Moreno
Nestlé Mexico has announced the investment of 100m pesos ($5.25m) in its Lácteos Lagos de Moreno factory, to double its capacity to receive fresh milk in the region.
This investment covers the installation of six new unloading bays with a reception capacity of up to 3.6m liters of milk per day, directly benefiting 450 milk producers and 40 transport lines.
Marco Guimaraes, from Nestlé Mexico, said the factory collects 16% of the total production of fresh milk from the Jalisco region, which represents the purchase of 460m liters of milk and 365m liters of whey per year.
The Lagos de Moreno Nestlé Milk factory receives the highest volume of fresh milk from the 17 factories that the company has in the country.
It produces brands such as NIDO, Svelty and Nestlé Half Cream, to meet national demand and also to export to Latin America, Central America and the US.
