Swiss company Nestle formally opened a new research and development center in Dongguan of Guangdong province on Tuesday, with an aim to further increase its presence in the Chinese mainland. “The establishment of Nestle’s Dongguan R&D center, which will focus on two product categories – confectionery products and ice cream, can further our understanding of Chinese consumers, ingredients and local cuisine, and provide scientific and technological expertise to the rest of the business in Asia and around the world,” said Johannes Baensch, Nestle’s Global Head of R&D. Located in Dongguan’s Hsu Fu Chi, the leading confectionery, biscuits and traditional snacks manufacturer in China, the R&D center is the third one that Nestle has opened in the Chinese mainland. The other two are located in Beijing and Shanghai. “Nestle’s fourth R&D center will soon open in Xiamen of Fujian province in the second half of the year,” according to John, Cheung, chairman and chief executive officer of Nestle Greater China Region.
