The Milo factory on NSW’s mid-north coast will see upgrades worth $32 million made before the year’s end, owner Nestle Australia has said.

According to a statement from the company on Thursday, the Smithtown factory – which marked its centenary in 2021 – would benefit from new “state-of-the-art” technology that would support increased output.

The factory makes over 200,000 cans of Milo, as well as Nesquik, Nescafé mixes and Malted Milk, annually. It employs more than 200 workers.

Factory Manager James Garley said in a statement that, “We’re committed to investing in continuous improvements and upgrades to our Smithtown factory so we can continue to proudly make iconic brands like Milo right here.

“Over the next 12 months, the project will inject an estimated $20 million into the local economy and support almost 200 jobs as we construct a new building to house Milo production.”

According to Nestle it will bring investments in the site to approximately $80 million over the last decade.
