Nestle (Malaysia) Bhd’s factory at Chembong has been transformed into the world’s largest Milo Manufacturing plant while making it also the largest global center of excellence for the company.
The factory, spread over 43 acres, was first established in 1993 and underwent a capacity expansion that involved upgrading its Manufacturing facilities with modern equipment to optimize production by up to 30 percent or 108,000 metric tons annually.
The production at the plant is to meet the increasing domestic demand as well as export to more than 20 countries, including China, Singapore, Thailand, Kenya, and Jamaica.
The investment of USD 21 million to establish their Chembong factory as the world’s largest Milo Manufacturing site and global Centre of Excellence is in line with the company’s commitment to continue enhancing Manufacturing operations while producing nutritious and high-quality made-in-Malaysia halal products.
Malaysia is a key market for Nestle globally and a key Manufacturing hub for the Asian region. This expansion signals the company’s willingness to continue investing in Malaysia.
