Nestlé Joins the Alliance as Latest Global Business Partner

The world’s largest food and beverage company, Nestlé, has become the latest international business to partner with the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation.

Alliance business partners provide their skills and expertise to Alliance projects, which help developing and least-developed countries cut through red tape, end costly delays in trade, and boost inclusive economic growth.

Our partnerships with industry leaders such as Nestlé on trade facilitation reforms contribute to improved business conditions and access to best practices that ultimately benefit micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) as they look to world markets for growth opportunities.

Nestlé’s history in developing food and beverage products spans over 150 years, with a presence in 186 countries. It has 368 factories worldwide and employs more than 270,000 people.

The company’s 2030 ambition is to support 30 million livelihoods in the communities where it operates.

With its long history, global presence, and extensive experience in moving food and beverage products across borders, Nestlé can help the Alliance to identify trade bottlenecks in supply chains and design commercially meaningful solutions.

“We are delighted to have Nestlé on board,” said Philippe Isler, the Alliance’s Director. “Their global scale, resources, and expertise will be invaluable for the Alliance, particularly as we scale up our food and agriculture-related work. Our collaboration with Nestlé will allow us to draw on their insights into the challenges facing global trade today to bring about effective trade facilitation reform.”
