Nestlé has delivered consistent sustainable performance and growth in a difficult trading environment, according to its 2015 Annual Report (pdf, 8Mb), published today.
In their Letter to Shareholders, Nestlé Chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and Chief Executive Officer Paul Bulcke said they were confident they could deliver on the company’s long-term commitment to organic growth of 5-6 percent.
As Nestlé celebrates a century and a half of business, they describe how the company is now extending its business beyond food, with the creation of Nestlé Health Science and Nestlé Skin Health.
“It is our size and our scale that allows us to invest heavily in these new areas that have the potential, over the long term, to offer great benefits for society,” said Mr. Brabeck-Letmathe and Mr. Bulcke.
The Annual Report contains Nestlé’s Corporate Governance Report and Financial Statements. It is published alongside the summary report Nestlé in society: Creating Shared Value and meeting our commitments.
