Nestlé Mexico  announced that it will invest  2,550 million pesos  to modernize and improve the operations of the factories installed in Querétaro and, with this, promote and endorse its commitment to the circular economy.

"Part of this investment has a large component of digital transformation: new tools so that all employees can do their jobs much better and that we are always a modern, state-of-the-art industry, with the best quality and the best technology," said  Fausto . Costa, CEO of Nestle Mexico.

He said that this decision renews the commitment to bet on the future, and is a sign of the trust that the company has in Querétaro. With this investment, the Carnation and Gerber factories will modernize their operations  , favoring water and energy savings, and the reduction of CO² emissions . With this, the company reaffirms its commitment to promoting the circular economy.

During the  75th anniversary  ceremony of Carnation's arrival in Querétaro, located in the Benito Juárez industrial zone,  Mauricio Kuri González, governor of the state,  celebrated Nestlé's investment announcement.

He stated that this reflects the company's interest in promoting new technologies that favor environmental sustainability, with water and energy saving projects, as well as the reduction of CO² emissions, with the goal of reaching zero net emissions in 2050 .

“If we do not bet on socially responsible companies, we are in the opposite direction of where technologies are going, of where the world is going. That is why we believe in renewable energies”, he maintained. 

Currently, the Nestlé plant produces 223,000 tons per year destined to supply the national and international market, and has a workforce of 482 employees, of which 41 percent are women.


Meanwhile,  Marco Antonio Del Prete Tercero, Secretary of Sustainable Development , mentioned that, with this investment announcement, there are already 36 projects completed so far this year, which represent an investment of 17.86 billion pesos, as well as the generation of 10,124 jobs in the short and medium term. 

He highlighted that the  food industry  is the third sector that contributes the most to the total value of manufacturing production in the state, which reported a growth of 13% during the first half of 2022, that is, 29,199 million pesos were produced.
