The UK’s Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills Sajid Javid MP visited Nestlé Tutbury in Derbyshire in the UK earlier this month to open a new coffee facility. Following a £325 million investment, the factory in Derbyshire has seen a major transformation over the last few years and for the first time in the UK houses all forms of coffee production including freeze dried, spray dried and pod technology brought together on one site creating a ‘Coffee Centre of Excellence.’
At Tutbury, more than 1.8 billion Nescafé Dolce Gusto coffee capsules were produced in 2015, 85 per cent of which were exported to 70 markets including Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Mexico and the US. The opening followed the launch of Nestlé UK’s insights into addressing the productivity agenda. “Productivity in Practice” is a series of insights which show links between productivity gains through investment in new technology and sustained improvements by the company’s people at all levels.
Dame Fiona Kendrick, Chairman and CEO of Nestlé UK and Ireland said: “We are taking the UK’s productivity challenge incredibly seriously at Nestlé and this investment has made Tutbury one of our best examples of that. We have made processes more efficient, given our employees new skills and equipped them with state-of-the-art machinery with which to do their job.”
