Nestlé expands its activity in Vietnam by investing USD$100 million to increase production capacity of its Tri An coffee factory, located in the southern province of Đồng Nai. This will help the company meet growing local and international consumer demand for high-quality coffee. 

Nestlé  is a Swiss multinational food and drink processing conglomerate corporation headquartered in Vevey, Vaud, Switzerland. The Nestlé Tri An factory in Vietname currently exports coffee products from iconic brands, such as Nescafé, Nescafé Dolce Gusto and Starbucks, to more than 29 countries all over the world. Nestlé has invested more than USD 500 million in this facility since 2011. Vietnam is currently the world's second largest producer and exporter of coffee and an important coffee origin for Nestlé. The company is the largest coffee buyer in the country, with annual purchases reaching up to USD 700 million.


The Nescafé Plan, Nestlé's sustainability program for the brand, was implemented in Vietnam in the Central Highlands in 2011. It is a cornerstone of the sustainable development of coffee in the region. It supports farmers transitioning to sustainable farming methods, helps rejuvenate coffee plots through the distribution of high-quality coffee plantlets, and protects water resources and biodiversity.

Nestlé currently operates six factories in Vietnam, focusing on the production of coffee, cocoa malt beverages, cooking aids and water. The company has been present in the country for nearly three decades and currently employs around 3 000 employees. 

Nestlé was formed in 1905 by the merger of the "Anglo-Swiss Milk Company", which was established in 1866 by brothers George and Charles Page, and "Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé" founded in 1867 by Henri Nestlé. The company grew significantly during World War I and again following World War II, expanding its offerings beyond its early condensed milk and infant formula products. The company has made a number of corporate acquisitions including Crosse & Blackwell in 1960, Findus in 1963, Libby's in 1971, Rowntree Mackintosh in 1988, Klim in 1998, and Gerber in 2007.
