Downers

The global economic slowdown has not spared Nestlé, and the company has suffered layoffs in recent years

It can be difficult for employees to earn promotions, as the company's size makes it difficult for even top-level workers to stand out

Communication is sometimes lacking between upper management and rank-and-file employees.

The Bottom Line

Nestlé spells opportunity: no matter where you are (or want to be) in the world, whether you're in marketing, finance, engineering or something else entirely, the chances are Nestlé will have a position that could use your skillset.

Strategy

As the largest food and beverage company in the US, Nestlé USA is committed to driving the evolution of the food industry through innovation across all aspects of its business, be it through in-house capabilities or strategic acquisitions. Nestlé purchased an approximately 16% stake in Freshly in 2017 as a strategic move to evaluate and test the burgeoning market. Freshly pioneered the direct-to-consumer prepared meal delivery channel and is known for its use of standard-setting technology and analytics, which will build upon Nestlé's strong base of innovation. Growing year-over-year since launching in 2015, Freshly is now shipping more than one million meals per week to customers in 48 states. Its 2020 forecasted sales are USD 430 million. The company fully acquired Freshly in October 2020.

Mergers and Acquisitions

In late 2020, Nestlé has acquired Freshly (headquartered in New York), one of the leading fresh-prepared meal delivery services in the U.S. The deal values Freshly at USD 950 million, with potential earnouts up to USD 550 million contingent to the successful growth of the business. This acquisition accelerates Nestlé's ability to capitalize on the new realities in the U.S. food market and further positions Nestlé to win in the future.
