Nestlé has expanded its Tri An coffee production facility in Dong Nai province, Vietnam, as the company has installed a new coffee capsule production line at the plant.

Nestlé says that the new production line will produce capsules for its Nescafé Dolce Gusto line, and will process approximately 3,500 tonnes of coffee every year, the equivalent of 130 million capsules.

The capsules will predominantly be exported to other markets in Asia including Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Indonesia, and Nestle claims that 90% the capsules currently produced at the facility go to these markets.

The company said in a statement that it could expand the facility further in the future.

Nestlé is one of the largest coffee buyers in the country, and the coffee used for the capsules will be sourced from Vietnamese producers.

Mr Ganesan Ampalavanar, managing director of Nestlé Vietnam said: “The new Nescafé Dolce Gusto production line will help make great coffee widely accessible to Vietnamese consumers and to 13 export markets.

“Moreover, the new production line reaffirms Nestlé Vietnam’s commitment to adding value to and developing this Vietnam’s coffee industry.”
