Nestlé reorganizes infant nutrition business
Effective January 1, 2018, infant nutrition will move from the globally-managed Nestlé Nutrition to a regionally-managed business. The change does not apply to other Nestlé businesses.
A dedicated Strategic Business Unit (SBU) will be created to retain the strengths of Nestlé’s globally-aligned nutrition strategy.
The SBU will manage core global functions including science-based innovation, quality management, compliance, and global manufacturing capacity.
A Nutrition Business Head will be appointed for each of Nestlé’s three zones, to implement the global strategy in local markets. The Nutrition Business Heads will have operational and financial responsibility, reporting to the respective Zone CEO.
Nestlé was founded more than 150 years ago. Nestlé Nutrition was created in 2006. ■
