Former Paulig subsidiary launches coffee capsule production line near Tver

TULA. Jan 30 (Interfax) - The company Milfoods (a former subsidiary of Finland's Paulig, which left Russia) has launched a capsule coffee production line at its plant in the Tver region, the regional government's press service said in a statement.

The Milfoods company, developing coffee roasting production in the Tver region, following the expansion of the range of natural coffee, has realized another major investment project. A new production line for coffee capsule production has been installed and launched at the company," the report said.

Investments in this investment project amounted to more than 100 million rubles.

"Technologically roasted natural coffee after grinding is packed into a 100% aluminum capsule. The capsules are fully recyclable," the statement said.

In the future, the company plans to expand its offers in the capsule coffee segment. The manufacturer will also continue to invest in the development of the production potential of the coffee roasting plant, increasing the degree of the plant's industrial automation, the press service said.

The coffee roasting enterprise in the Tver region has been operating for more than 10 years. Its capacity is designed to produce over 25,000 tonnes of coffee per year. Green coffee is supplied to the plant directly from producers in more than ten countries. The enterprise is located at the Borovlevo-2 industrial park near Tver.

As reported, Finland's Paulig in early May 2022 closed the deal on the sale of its Russian business - a coffee roasting plant near Tver - to private investor Vikas Soi. Paulig Rus LLC was renamed Milfoods LLC. A short time later, Soi took over as its general director. Trademarks and recipes were not included in the deal.
