Nespresso expands of Avenches production centre

Nespresso is investing CHF 117 million to expand its Avenches production centre in Switzerland to meet increasing consumer demand and support international development.

The investment supports the increase of production capacity, by including three new production lines, and the expansion of its distribution centre, augmenting the current logistics capacity.

The Avenches production centre acts as Nespresso’ global distribution centre, shipping capsules to over 80 countries around the world, and is dedicated to the production of Nespresso Original and Professional coffees as well as Starbucks by Nespresso.

“Over the past eight months we have announced a total of CHF 270 million investment in both our Romont and Avenches production centres,” said Guillaume Le Cunff, CEO of Nespresso. ”

Growing consumer demand has led to the need to expand Nespresso’s logistics operations in Avenches, ensuring higher turnover in order processing and dispatching, as well as increased production capacity.

The expansion of the distribution centre is set to start in July 2021 and expected to be fully operational by September 2022. The three new production lines are planned to be operational by March 2022

Nespresso opened its production center in Avenches in 2008, with an initial investment of CHF 300 million, later complemented with CHF 200 million invested in its infrastructure and operations in Avenches, a total of CHF 500 million since 2009.
