Nestlé Malaysia has opened its expanded Milo manufacturing facility at Chembong, Negeri Sembilan.

The newly expanded facility is claimed to be the world’s largest Milo manufacturing site, with the capacity to export the product to more than 20 countries worldwide.

The company termed the facility as its global Centre of Excellence.

Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar YAB Dato’ Seri Haji Aminuddin bin Harun said: “Investments from high-impact industries, such as Nestlé Malaysia are integral to our vision of driving robust economic growth in Malaysia and Negeri Sembilan, which is outlined in our Malaysia Vision Valley 2.0 plan.

“Not only is this testament to our economic potential in Negeri Sembilan, but also the investment-friendly policies implemented by the State. Nestlé Malaysia’s investment to upgrade and expand the MILO factory in Chembong will continue to create jobs for the youth and spur more opportunities for local businesses.”
