Nestlé has confirmed it will invest nearly €1.9m ($2.1m) in the construction of two new filling lines at its condensed milk factory located in Pontecesures (Pontevedra).

The new lines at the plant in the Galicia region will have more modern technology, will be more precise and with a faster filling speed.

Construction of the line destined for large formats for industrial customers has already begun, at a cost of about €350,000 ($385,000).

This line will allow the filling of containers of different sizes that will range from a 1,000-liter format, which is currently filled manually, to the 2.5-, 5- and 25-liter formats, which are carried out semi-automatically.

The new filling line, which is scheduled to go into operation in November 2019, is equipped with a technology that provides greater precision and increases the shelf-life of the product.
