It has been almost one century since Nestlé opened its first plant in the town of Araras, Sao Paulo to manufacture Leite Moça condensed milk. In 1929 the company was asked by the Brazilian government to develop a powdered coffee extract in order to help keeping inside Brazil the surplus of coffee in the market caused by the crash of the New York Exchange in that same year. Those efforts lead to the launch of the iconic brand NESCAFÉ. NESCAFÉ branded coffees were featured in historical moments such as part of the US armed forces provisions during the Second World War and the hot beverage of choice for the crew of the Apolo 11 mission. In 1953 the Nestlé’s plant in Araras started producing NESCAFÉ and since then it has committed itself with innovation and excellence in the instant coffees production. And that is being done in highest respect to the environment, to the Brazilian coffee growers and to all consumers.
