Nestlé is amazing because it gives me the opportunity to unlock my potential and contribute to the success of the company every day. I feel recognized for every activity I perform, and I have that feeling since my first day, when I started as an intern.

Not only in terms of the kinds of businesses and categories, but also that, as we build relationships and work so closely with other countries and global teams, you really feel that a career at Nestlé could take you anywhere in the world.

We're striving to co-create a resilient future for our planet and its people. That’s why we are making a promise to advance regenerative food systems at scale.

Climate change and environmental threats such as the degradation of forests, land, soil and waterways are impacting farmers and communities. These threats put farmer livelihoods at risk and jeopardize the accessibility and availability of quality food.

We must help protect and restore our planet's resources. This requires a transformative change.

That is why Nestlé is embarking on a journey toward regeneration; to help protect, renew and restore the environment, improve the livelihoods of farmers and enhance the resilience and well-being of communities and our consumers.

We believe each and every one of us has a role to play in helping protect our future. Whatever your age, gender, nationality or background – together, we can all make a difference. Both today and for generations to come.

Regenerative agriculture is our first step, but we’re not stopping there.

The policy covers employment protection and non-discrimination, a healthy and breastfeeding-friendly work environment, and flexible work arrangements.

In addition to 6 months’ maternity leave, flexitime and breastfeeding breaks, we’ve provided over 302 breastfeeding sites in our workplaces around the world. By 2018, we’ll have equipped all offices and sites of more.
