1962: Nestle's Valsayn Factory was commissioned.

In 1962, a new factory was commissioned at Valsayn to manufacture food products using indigenous raw materials. Since then, the factory has developed to become the largest and most diversified food manufacturing enterprise in Trinidad and Tobago. The factory has widened its range to incorporate both UHT products and fruits juices. Nestlé products such as Orchard Drinks and Nestlé Full Cream and Low Fat Milks are household names, proving to be favorites amongst Trinbagonians.

The principal role of the factory is the transformation of raw agricultural materials into high quality products that are ISO certified. It is the technical hub of the company, that is an essential part of our value chain. It employs over 200 employees on a permanent basis who all live by the guiding principal ‘going zero’. Signifying, zero quality defects, injuries, waste, environmental impact, and zero misses in delivery to our consumers. The factory ensures that we meet the expectations of our consumers every time.
