Nestlé coffee factory fire sparks mass evacuation

March 10, 2013

Nestlé tells that it chose to evacuate hundreds of staff from its main UK coffee factory yesterday – which makes its Nescafé and Dolce Gusto brands – after machinery caught fire.

A Nestlé UK spokeswoman told this publication: “We can confirm that the fire brigade was called out to the Tutbury factory yesterday morning after a non-essential piece of machinery overheated.”

She added: “Our policy is to automatically evacuate the building and call the fire service. The fire service was able to put out the small fire and staff returned to work. Production was back to normal late yesterday afternoon.”
