Nestlé Professional USA will expand its facility in Trenton, Missouri. The $7.5 million project is expected to create 30 jobs.
The investment will enable the company to meet growing demand for products for the out-of-home market. The facility currently produces Chef-mate products using its proprietary cooked-before-canning process.
“The pandemic has intensified the need for high quality, easy to use, restaurant products and we are confident that our solutions will continue to drive our recovery,” said Perry Miele, President and CEO of Nestlé Professional USA. “Nestlé’s investment in Trenton strengthens our market position and enhances our U.S. manufacturing capabilities. We’re excited to begin adding staff to this location to support our enhanced operations and the local community.”
Nestlé Professional used the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.
“We’re excited for the community of Trenton and the benefits Nestlé’s growth will bring to the area,” said Maggie Kost, Acting Director of the Department of Economic Development. “Leading companies invest in our state because we have the workforce, low costs and infrastructure that businesses need to thrive. It’s always encouraging to see an industry leader like Nestlé creating new opportunities for Missourians.”
Nestlé Professional, the out-of-home division of Nestlé, produces a variety of ready-to-use products for restaurants, hospitals, schools, and more.
