Nestlé Malaysia has recently launched its expanded Chembong factory in Negeri Sembilan, to establish the facility as the world’s largest Milo manufacturing site and global Center of Excellence. According to the company, this expansion upgrades the manufacturing facility with state-of-the-art production lines to optimize capacity and efficiency to deliver higher productivity and competitiveness. The 30% production capacity increase will cater to growing domestic demand and for export to over 20 countries.
Since the start of operations in 1993, the Milo Chembong factory has been a key contributor to the local economy, offering work opportunities to its surrounding local communities. The Chembong factory complex currently employs Nestlé’s largest factory workforce among its six factories in Malaysia, says the press release.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, Chris Johnson, executive vice president and chief executive officer 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 a 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.”
Milo product variants produced in the Chembong factory include Milo powder, Milo 3 in 1 and Milo Kosong.
