The world's No. 1 food maker said it would build an
infant nutrition factory in Jalisco and a pet-food factory in
Guanajuato, as well as expanding an existing cereal factory.
The investment would create 700 direct jobs, Nestle said.
The Mexican factories will produce goods for the wider region. For
example, about 40 percent of the output from the baby food factory
will be exported to Latin America and the Caribbean.
