Nestlé is the world’s leading food and beverage company, headquartered in Vevey, Switzerland. We employ almost a quarter of a million people with operations in nearly every country on the world. Our company was founded in 1866 by Henri Nestlé, a Vevey resident, and we have concentrated on filling real needs for consumers around the world ever since in the area of health, wellness and nutrition.
We see the European Masters Degree in Food Studies as a very useful initiative to align the students’ curriculum to needs as seen by us, to give students during their study an international experience and exposure to different universities and cultures. The half-year practical time to be spent at a company is seen as beneficial in their preparation for a job in our industry.
