RUSSIA: Nestlé opens chocolate production lines

Swiss food giant Nestle has opened two premium chocolate production lines in Russia.

Swiss food giant Nestle has opened two premium chocolate production lines in Russia.

The two lines, which were transferred from the Tuchkovo factory in the Ruzsky district, Moscow, to the Samara region, will produce premium brand Comilfo chocolate, the firm said today (26 August).

Around 149 jobs have been created at the site, which is one of 13 Nestle production facilities in Russia.

Laurent Freixe, Nestlé executive vice president and zone director for Europe said: “The transfer of the Comilfo production lines allows us to focus our chocolate manufacturing facilities in Russia and strengthen the factory as a key competence centre for confectionery products in Europe. This move will help us to further develop our successful chocolate brands.”

In March, Nestle insisted that it remains committed to driving growth in Russia, despite the challenges that have hit consumption in the market over the past year.
