Today, the Prime Minister visited Nestle in Staffordshire to welcome significant investment from the company.

Nestle has announced investment of £110 million in its Tutbury site to extend their coffee manufacturing facility and create 300 new jobs.

Mr Cameron said:

This new investment by Nestle and the jobs it will create is brilliant news for UK manufacturing and for the local community.

This demonstrates what can be achieved by investing in capacity and people as Nestle has done consistently over recent years. The jobs created by this new investment will benefit both skilled workers and those leaving school who will be able to train in the workplace to become the skilled workers of the future.

Manufacturing is crucial to the new economy we are building - an economy where we’re making and selling the products the world wants to buy. This investment shows the confidence that there is in the UK, it is clear that we have got a great manufacturing future.

Over the past 5 years Nestle has invested over £100m in the Tutbury factory. Twelve new high speed production lines will be introduced in a new extension which will manufacture pods for sale in the UK and export to over 38 countries around the world.
