Swizterland’s Nestle said it will invest 72 million Swiss francs ($73.48 million) in the factory, which will be based in Montes Clares, in Minas Gerais.
 
The factory will make coffee capsules for the Nescafe Dolce Gusto single-serve coffee system and will supply the domestic market as well as other Latin American countries.
