Global food and beverage company Nestlé announced today the opening of a new $340 million Nescafé coffee factory in Veracruz, Mexico, powered by clean energy and producing zero wastewater.

The opening of the new plant follows the launch by Nestlé of a series of sustainability commitments for its Nescafé brand last year, including goals to achieve 100% responsibly sourced coffee by 2025, 100% recyclable or reusable packaging by 2025, alongside investments in climate-related actions across the supply chain to decrease environmental impact.

According to Nestlé, the new facility reduces water and energy consumption utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and green energies, including wastewater treatment systems to ensure 100% of water recirculation, zero wastewater discharges and zero waste to landfills, and a biomass boiler using biological waste from the coffee process to generate energy.
