Nestlé Purina is investing CHF 200 million to expand its pet food plant in the city of Silao in Mexico. This expansion will include the addition of a third line for wet pet food and a fourth line for dry pet food, making the factory the largest for pet food in Latin America.

The Mexican market is the most important for Purina in Latin America, representing 45% of Purina’s total sales in the region. It is also the fourth-largest market for Purina worldwide, highlighting the growing importance of emerging economies for the pet food business.

Laurent Freixe, chief executive officer of Zone Latin America, said, “Mexico plays a fundamental role in our operations in Latin America, serving as a key market and strategic hub for Nestlé. We are committed to investing in the country, supporting local communities, and offering high-quality products that meet the changing needs of Mexican consumers. Mexico is at the heart of our growth strategy in the region, and we take pride in contributing to its development and success.”
