Swiss food group Nestlé SA plans to close a German plant at the end of 2018, Reuters reported June 13, citing a company statement.
The plant, which employs around 100 workers, makes the coffee substitute Caro and roasted cereals, the report added. It is located in Ludwigsburg near Stuttgart.
Nestlé is closing the plant because of reduced demand for Caro, a roasted grain beverage popular in the post-war period, Reuters reported. The report noted that the factory was not operating at full capacity.
According to the report, some of the output from the plant will be transferred to other European sites.
