"In 2021 we have just made a top-up investment of USD 220 million for the construction of our new factory in Batang, the name is Bandaraya factory, which is planned to be operational next year," said Nestle Indonesia Corporate Affairs Director Sufintri Rahayu in Jakarta, Wednesday, September 7, 2022.

Rahayu explained that the factory will later produce ready-to-drink (RTD) products or packaged drinks.

Previously, in 2019, Nestle Indonesia had also added an investment of US$100 million to increase capacity in three factories, namely the West Java Karawang factory, Bandar Lampung, and the East Java Kejayan factory. Rahayu explained that during the Covid-19 pandemic, Nestle factories continued to operate 100 percent to produce food and beverage products.

Nestle Indonesia partners with 26,000 dairy farmers in Indonesia to obtain fresh milk supplies for their products. Within a year, Nestle buys fresh milk from farmers in East Java for 120 million US dollars. Nestle Indonesia also partners with 20 thousand coffee farmers in Lampung to supply coffee beans which will be processed into various products with a value of up to 80 million US dollars a year.
