Since the time that Henri Nestlé set up a London office in 1868, Nestle in the UK has grown to be a major UK manufacturer and one of the food industry's leading exporters.
Our success is based on delivering fantastic products to consumers at every stage of life whether it be coffee and cereals, confectionery, bottled waters or petfood and I am extremely proud of the fact that over 95% of UK households use our brands. Nutrition research and food science is in Nestlé's DNA and we invest more than CHF1.9 billion every year in research and development, more than any other food company. Our ambition is to be the UK's leading nutrition health and wellness company and that means we are entering a new and exciting stage of our business development.
People are key to our success and I am very proud of the fact that we employ over 7,000 people in the UK and Ireland in a wide range of roles across all functions and Company divisions. Through attracting and developing the best people, rewarding performance and constantly improving our skill base and capabilities we continue to perform well in a tough economic climate. Our partnership with Team Nestlé, a group of best in class British athletes is just one way that we aim to inspire our people to continue to deliver world class performance each and every day.
I hope that this website will give you a taster of what its like to work at Nestlé and how you too could be part of our winning team.
CEO, Nestlé UK and Ireland
