As part of the second phase of Nestlé Vietnam’s investment, the company successfully completed the expansion of the Nestlé Bong Sen Factory in northern Hung Yen province on September 4, to meet the increasing demand for nutritional drinks.

The expansion is a significant step in the company’s ongoing vision of enhancing its leading position in nutrition, health, and wellness in the north of Vietnam. Nestlé’s total investment in Hung Yen now stands at $108.7 million, demonstrating another milestone in its mission to support the local economy and encourage sustainable development.

Deputy Minister of National Resources and Environment Vo Tuan Nhan said Switzerland has become the fifth-largest European investor in Vietnam, ahead of many of its larger neighbors. “These investments have created some 20,000 jobs in various sectors, including engineering, pharmaceuticals, and food processing, where Nestlé is the leading investor and employer,” he added. “I would like to congratulate Nestlé Vietnam on this new milestone in Vietnam. I am certain that this expansion will continue to contribute to the lasting success of Swiss - Vietnamese relations.”

Mr. Dang Ngoc Quynh, Vice Chairman of the Hung Yen Provincial People’s Committee, said he appreciated the efforts of Nestlé Vietnam in supplying high-quality beverages to consumers in the north. “Nestlé’s activities in Hung Yen province have also contributed a great deal to local sustainable social and economic development, thanks to the creation of employment opportunities, tax contributions, and environmental protection,” he added.

Mr. Christian Schmid, Head of Technical, Nestlé Zone AOA, said quality and safety are Nestlé’s top priorities. “This applies to all products worldwide, across all our brands, from food and beverages to all our systems and services,” he noted. “We are proud to continue to deliver delicious and nutritious Swiss quality products to all consumers in Vietnam.”

Nestlé operates six factories in Vietnam, two of which are in Hung Yen. As part of Nestlé Vietnam’s vision of continuous investments to 2025, its objective is to create 600 direct local jobs and thousands of indirect jobs.

Nestlé’s strong commitment to Hung Yen has included not only the opening of Nestlé Bong Sen in May 2017 but also a distribution center in March 2019, and now the doubling of capacity at Bong Sen.
