SHAH ALAM, April 8 — The Selangor government welcomes the effort by Nestle Malaysia (Nestle) in opening a Plant-Based Food Production Centre involving an investment of almost RM150 million.
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said Selangor was fortunate to host a high-tech facility that would produce quality plant-based food products for the local and international market.
“The centre is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia and is a reflection of the investor confidence in the stability and administration of the state government,” he said in a statement on Facebook today.
He said the state-of-the-art (high-tech) production centre not only produce quality products for all but is also developed sustainably and environmentally friendly, as almost every element of its packaging could be recycled.
