With the investment, the Nunspeet facility will be equipped with technically advanced machines for the production of infant specialities.

The nutrition range has been developed for Nestle Health Science at the Nestle Product Technology Center in Konolfingen, Switzerland for babies with protein allergies.

Nestlé Netherlands CEO Marc Boersch said: "The Netherlands and Nestlé are linked together since 1869 when our first product was sold here. Our infant nutrition factory has its roots in Nunspeet since 1895. Our presence for a long period of time has made us feel part of the Dutch society.

"In addition, we consider that Nestlé and The Netherlands has established a successful collaboration built upon the large amount of valuable expertise that is present here in the field of food technology and the inspiring Dutch innovation infrastructure. We consider our investment in the factory as an investment for a continuous fruitful connection in the future with The Netherlands".

The renovated production facility will become operational in 2017.

The facility expansion is expected to create additional jobs in the construction phase. Currently, the plant employs over 300 people. Recently, the company initiated new steps in support of sodium reduction, as the US Food and Drug Administration is considering issuing voluntary guidelines on sodium levels in packaged food.

The Swiss food company has decided to help people limit their sodium consumption to 2,000 milligrams per day as per World Health Organisation (WHO).

As part of its efforts, Nestle is planning to increase its low sodium portfolio of food and beverages across the globe. These items would characteristically carry less than 2,000 milligrams of sodium per day.
