Nestlé has delivered consistent sustainable performance and growth in a difficult trading environment, according to its 2015 Annual Report, published on Tuesday.
In their letter to shareholders that introduces the report, Chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and Chief Executive Officer Paul Bulcke said they were confident that Nestlé will continue to deliver on its 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 extending its business beyond food and beverages, by creating 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 Annual Review, Nestlé’s Corporate Governance Report and Financial Statements. It is published alongside the summary report Nestlé in society: Creating Shared Value.
