Nestlé has opened a new $340 million facility in Veracruz, Mexico, which will produce 670,000 bags of instant coffee annually for the company’s Nescafé coffee brand and create 1,200 jobs. Constructed to supply markets across the Americas and Asia, the factory is expected to produce 670,000 bags of coffee annually.

The Veracruz plant is Nestlé’s second coffee facility in Mexico (the other is located in Toluca, near Mexico City), and will make the company Mexico’s largest coffee producer by volume.

The new factory was built with Nestlé’s sustainability commitments in mind. It features state-of-the-art technologies, such as wastewater treatment systems, to ensure 100% of water recirculation, as well as zero wastewater discharges and zero waste to landfills, to reduce water and energy usage. It also is powered by 100% green electricity and has a biomass boiler, which will use biological waste from the coffee processing to generate energy.

The facility will be supplied by Mexican growers, who will have access to sustainable farming specialists, in keeping with Nestlé’s goal to achieve 100% responsibly sourced coffee by 2025.
