Global brand Nestlé is seeing significant growth as of late, due to investments in its long-term strategy. With consumers seeking more healthy and nutritious products, it looks like the company will continue to grow not just in the U.S. but internationally as well.
According to Seeking Alpha, the company saw its real internal growth was up by 3.3 percent when looking back over the past nine months. Additionally, the company also saw strong growth in organic retail sales, in spite of lower out-of-home sales during this period. In this regard, the overall real organic growth for Nestlé had been expected to come in at three percent for the full year.
Nestlé is continuing to reorient its focus toward its more profitable business segments, and the longer-term outlook for the company remains promising, continued the source.
Given that consumers are continuing to purchase more health-forward products, Nestlé’s recent acquisition of Freshly helps put the company in a more dominant position in the food and beverage market in the United States.
Additionally, Nestlé also announced its intention to sell its Yinlu peanut milk and canned rice porridge business to Chinese firm Food Wise Co. Under the terms of the deal, Nestlé will retain its Nescafe brand for distribution across Greater China. According to the source, China is the second-largest market for Nestlé.
