Swiss beverage maker Nestle has opened a $4.1 million extension to its existing research and development center in Singapore in order to serve its fastest-growing instant coffee segments in Asia.

The investment will add 20 employees to the center’s current roster of approximately 100, with R&D in the fields of mechanical engineering, analytical chemistry, microbiology and sensory science. The center, which opened in 1980, will expand its focus on the Nescafe-brand instant coffee mixes, and Milo powdered beverages.

“With this investment, our research and development centre in Singapore becomes our leading global R&D centre for Nescafe Coffee Mixes and Milo,” Johannes Baensch, Nestle’s Global Head of Research and Development, said at the opening ceremony for the expansion, adding that the company is exploring ways to reduce sugar and salt content in its instant beverages without noticeably altering taste.
