The investments totaling 1.4 billion rubles were made into the production lines’ setup and modernization as well as into staff training schemes. Due to this project, the average annual volume of production is estimated to be 30 thousand tons.
Viktor Ageev, Deputy Head of the City Administration, was quoted as saying:
– Nestlé can serve as a model company that complies with the world production standards, production culture and environmental regulations. Before taking an investment decision the company evaluates the region and its staff to make sure it invests money into a project that would best accomplish its goals. Nestlé has chosen Perm to expand the company’s production facilities. We hope our city will meet the company’s and other investors’ expectations, and their future investment decisions will be taken in favour of our city
