Nestlé has commenced the construction of a new factory in Batang, Indonesia. The factory will create about 200 new jobs in the Central Java province and will produce Bear Brand liquid milk and ready-to-drink beverages, Milo and Nescafé, to fulfill growing consumer demand. It will be built on 20 hectares of land and will encourage the further development of the dairy sector in the region.
Nestlé Indonesia has been partnering with dairy farmers and cooperatives in East Java since 1975, providing them with technical and financial assistance to improve the productivity and quality of fresh-milk production. With the construction of the new factory, the company has signed a memorandum of understanding with the regional government of Batang to develop a partnership with prospective dairy farmers and farmer groups to source additional raw materials for production.
The new Nestlé Bandaraya factory, located at Batang Industrial Park, will be ready for commercial production in 2023 and will apply state-of-the-art technology to ensure the highest environmental standards.
