Job Opportunities Within the Nestle Brand

Nestle is a multinational consumer goods company based in Switzerland. It focuses on health related, nutritional and snack foods for people around the world and is the largest when revenue is measured. There are many opportunities in the Nestle brand, both in the UK and internationally, in various areas. Focus Management Consultants can help you find the perfect role for you within Nestle.

A Brief History of the Nestle Brand

The origins of Nestle date all the way back to 1866. It started as two Swiss brands – Nestle and the Anglo-Swiss Milk Company – working against each other and then later joining  together to create the name. Over the first few decades, the two separate brands expended across Europe, reaching the UK, and into the USA.

Henri Nestle started creating baby food that was milk based in September 1866. A year after that, Daniel Peter perfected his milk chocolate manufacturing process, which would never have happened without Nestlé’s development. The Anglo-Swiss company started adding the milk based infant foods, which meant that the two remained as direct rivals.

The two companies merged in 1905 but the brand was not formally rebranded as Nestle until 1977. By the time the two companies joined together, they had bases around the majority of Europe and the United States. Nestle became a major name during the First World War when there was more demand for government contracted dairy products and the level of production had at least doubled by the end.

An End to Government Contracts

At the end of the war, people were able to start using fresh milk again. This could have been a disaster for the brand but it quickly developed a way to respond to this. It expanded and developed new products for consumers, including chocolate which became the second biggest activity for the company.

The Second World War started to hit Nestle hard with profits dropping considerably at the outset. However, Nestle worked on introducing factories in developing regions, like the Latin American countries, and brought out Nescafe to the market. The US military started using the new coffee product and it helped the sales rise, even with the economy of war.

Constantly Adding New Products

To help avoid problems with finances and to stay with the times, Nestle constantly introduced – and still does – new products onto the market. In 1947, it merged with Maggi and started offering soups and seasonings. It also merged with Findus, Libby’s and Stouffers. In 1974, it further diversified its products by becoming a shareholder in L’Oreal.

Nestle also acquired larger brand names, including Carnation and Rowntree Mackintosh, which led to the acquisition of the brand Willy Wonka.

Jobs Around the World

Due to all the acquisitions and takeovers, Nestle has created jobs all over the world for its employees, including the UK, USA, Australia, Germany and Brazil.

The acquisitions have also led to more job opportunities and areas of work. There are very few limitations, including working in the chocolate and confectionary industry, frozen food manufacturing, baby food products and breakfast cereals. The brand also offers bottled water, snacks and pet food.

With the shares in L’Oreal, Nestle also has opportunities in the beauty and pharmaceutical industries. Beauty brands that it owns include Maybelline, Garnier and The Body Shop. It also works with L’Oreal in joint ventures Laboratoires Inneov, which works with nutritional cosmetics, and Gladerma, which is for dermatology. There are joint adventures with other companies, including The Coca-Cola Company, Fonterra and Indofood.

Job security is evident. In 2011, Nestle was the number one most profitable company in the global Fortune 500.
