Investment to bolster manufacturing capabilities, enhance sustainable packaging efforts and generate new local jobs
Nestlé Health Science has announced a $43 million investment to expand its manufacturing facility in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in the US. The investment will add two new production lines to increase manufacturing of high-demand ready-to-drink consumer products.
The facility produces an array of medical nutrition products, such as tube feeding formulas, and nutritional drinks from brands such as BOOST and Carnation Breakfast Essentials.
The investment will bring approximately 60 jobs to the local community, ranging from processing, packaging and filling lines to mechanics and engineers.
Eau Claire is a global leader in the company’s sustainability efforts and newly B Corporation Certified. As a zero waste-to-landfill facility, Eau Claire strives to make a net positive impact on people and the planet. The new production lines will manufacture ready-to-drink nutrition products in Tetra Pak cartons made with responsibly sourced material. The site is also investing in water optimisation that will ensure over 90% of total factory water usage is fully recovered by the end of 2023.
