Nestlé Supports Global Dairy Industry with New Partnership in Morocco

May 6, 2012 08:41 PM

The move follows Nestle’s recent dairy investments in Chile, Sri Lanka, China and Brazil.

Nestlé today announced it is building on its commitment to help support the development of the global dairy industry with a new partnership in Morocco.
The collaboration with the local authorities in the Moroccan region of Doukkala-Abda aims to increase milk production, improve the quality of fresh milk and encourage the development of the dairy industry throughout the private sector.
The Doukkala-Abda region currently produces 22% of the milk in Morocco, sourcing over 340 million litres a year.
Nestlé’s partnership with the Agency for Agricultural Development and the Regional Office of Agriculture seeks to increase the company’s own milk collection in the region by 10% by 2014.
Worldwide investment
Nestlé’s new partnership in Morocco is the latest in a long-line of investments it has made to support the development of the global dairy industry.
The company invested CHF 127 million in a new milk products factory in Chile and opened a UHT milk factory in Sri Lanka in April.
It also announced the construction of a dairy farming institute in China in January, and joined a dairy partnership in Brazil at the end of last year.
In April, Nestlé announced it would acquire Pfizer Nutrition for US $11.85 billion.
