Nestlé Boosts Vietnamese Coffee Production with $100 Million Investment


Tri An Facility Expansion to Double Output of Leading Coffee Brands

Nestlé Vietnam has announced a substantial $100 million investment to enhance the production capabilities of its Tri An coffee facility in Dong Nai. This move is set to double the site’s processing capacity, marking a significant milestone in Nestlé’s presence in Vietnam, with total investments exceeding $500 million.

Strategic Focus on Premium Coffee Brands and Global Supply

The investment is strategically aimed at catering to the growing domestic appetite for premium coffee brands and positioning Vietnam as a key player in the global high-value coffee market. Nestlé’s focus includes renowned brands such as Nescafé, Nespresso, Starbucks, and Blue Bottle.

Tri An Facility: A Hub for International Coffee Exports

Operating as a pivotal export hub, the Tri An production site already distributes packaged coffee products from its portfolio to over 29 countries worldwide. This expansion is set to amplify its reach and production volume significantly.

Commitment to Long-Term Growth in Vietnam

Jacob Binu, General Director of Nestlé Vietnam, highlighted the project as a testament to Nestlé’s enduring investment commitment in Vietnam. He emphasized the factory’s anticipated capacity boost, poised to not only satisfy local demand but also to harness Vietnam’s export potential in delivering high-value coffee internationally.

Nestlé’s Deep-Rooted Presence in Vietnam

Nestlé initiated its Vietnamese operations in 1993 with a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City. The Tri An site, established in 2013, became a key location with the inauguration of a Nescafé Dolce Gusto capsule production line in 2018.

Headquartered in Vevey, Nestlé has poured nearly $830 million into its Vietnamese ventures, maintaining four production sites—three in Dong Nai—and two distribution centers. This latest investment underscores the company’s commitment to leveraging Vietnam’s growing role in the global coffee industry.
