About the partnership between Credit Suisse and Nestlé
It's now over 70 years since Nestlé introduced the world to Nescafé, the first ever instant coffee. Today, approximately 5,500 cups of Nescafé are drunk every second, every day around the globe.
And Nestlé has remained at the forefront of coffee innovations ever since.
1986 saw the launch of the Nespresso system, a machine that instantly turns capsules of ground coffee into espressos.
And its most recent development has been Nestlé Dolce Gusto, a coffee maker that adds frothy cappuccinos, lungos, mochas and latte macchiatos to the repertoire of hot beverages you can make at home.
Both of these innovations have helped invigorate sales at Nestlé’s soluble coffee business unit, and turn it into one of the most dynamic in Europe. Under the guidance of Nestlé’s Europe’s Executive Vice President, Laurent Freixe, Nestlé has managed to make the most of our love of coffee, and the state of the art machines that make it.
