BACKGROUND NOTE

 

Nestlé, headquartered in Vevey, Switzerland, was founded in 1866. One of the leading players in the food and beverage categories, the company had a global presence and employed more than 328,000 people as of 2017. Its sales and profits for the year 2016 were CHF 89.5 billion and CHF 8.53 billion respectively.

Though Nestlé was among the world’s largest food processing companies and had great consumer brands well known for their quality, critics pointed out that there seemed to be an element of arrogance in its actions. The company had a history of confrontations over a range of issues. There were instances of Nestlé being accused of disregarding its corporate responsibility in many countries in which it operated. The Swiss conglomerate had had its fair share of controversies and ethical dilemmas during its nearly 150-year-long history.
