Nestlé today launched its expanded Chembong factory in Malaysia, now the largest Milo factory in the world. A 30% capacity increase will meet expanding domestic demand and exports to over 20 countries for Milo, the world’s leading chocolate malt beverage.
The Chembong factory started operations in 1993 and it currently employs the largest workforce among the six Nestlé factories in Malaysia. Varieties produced in the factory include regular Milo and Milo 3-in-1.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, Chris Johnson, Executive Vice President and CEO of Zone Asia, Oceania and sub-Saharan Africa, said: “Malaysia is a key market for Nestlé globally and a key manufacturing hub in our Asian region. This expansion is testament to our drive to ensure strong, profitable and sustainable growth, in tandem with our commitment to continue investing in Malaysia as a key manufacturing hub for the Nestlé Group.”
