Nestle opens $90 million pet food plant expansion at Blayney

(Source: Supplied)

Nestlé has unveiled a $90 million upgrade to its Blaney factory to meet the growing demand for wet cat foods in Australia. 

Established in late 2014, the wet cat food facility will now include a high-speed manufacturing plant that will produce for premium brands such as Felix, Fancy Feast, Pro Plan and Purina One.

Nestlé’s Blayney factory manager Charlene De Wit said: “Our expanded facilities will allow us to scale up production of single-serve wet cat food by over 120 per cent as well as the dry cat and dog food we already produce.”

Almost 85 per cent of ingredients used in the products such as meat and grains are sourced locally.  This expansion is set to position Nestlé as a key supplier in the export of both wet and dry pet foods in New Zealand, Thailand and Japan. 

The company has also invested more than $200 million in the last 10 years in developing various aspects of the Blaney factory to meet demands.
