Federal Councilor and Head of the Federal Department of Economic Affairs Johann Schneider-Ammann, State Councilor and Minister of Economic Affairs and Employment at the Canton of Fribourg Beat Vonlanthen, and Mayor of Romont Roger Brodard attended the inauguration of the newest Nestlé Nespresso production facility. In Romont, this plant is the third the company has built in Swizterland since 2002.
"This production center represents a strategic, long-term investment to meet the growing global consumer demand for the highest quality Nespresso coffees in the coming years," said Paul Bulcke, CEO of Nestlé SA.
Romont is the first production center for Nestlé to achieve the LEED Gold certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). This certification not only covers the energy- and water-efficiency of an industrial building, it also weighs aspects such as employees' health and wellbeing at the workplace, and infrastructure for environmentally friendly mobility.
