Petfood manufacturer Nestlé Purina has invested CHF15 million (US$15.9 million) in its factory in Santo Tomé, Argentina, increasing its petfood production capacity by 50 percent and creating 250 jobs overall.
The petfood manufacturer's investment added a third production line for dry cat and dog food, as well as two new packaging lines.
The investment is part of a larger expansion project the company began in 2010 to improve the Santo Tomé production facility. The program has so far funded the installation of new production technologies, increased storage capacity for raw materials and improved ingredient mixing facilities.
