Nestlé, the world’s biggest producer of food and drink, is celebrating UN World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development (Tuesday, 21 May 2019) by highlighting the 78 nationalities working for its businesses in the UK and Ireland.

Stefano Agostini, CEO of Nestlé UK & Ireland said: “Nestlé is a global success, and it’s our global people that are the key to this success. In the UK and Ireland, we are in the fortunate position to be able to attract talent from all over the world. Our diversity gives us access to new ideas and different ways of thinking, that, when mixed with our highly skilled local talent and expertise make us a force to be reckoned with, quickly able to adapt, innovate and inspire our customers and consumers.”

“UN World Day for Cultural Diversity Day is a great time to celebrate the diversity of our people here in the UK and Ireland that make our success possible, at Nestlé, everyone is included, everyone is valued and everyone is respected. This fact makes me proud to come to work every day.”

People from all over the world are building their careers at Nestlé businesses in the UK and Ireland. From Australia to Zimbabwe, the cultural diversity of Nestlé’s people in the UK and Ireland is a strength that the business celebrates and respects. This strong cultural diversity also helps the business to play our part in delivering on two of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which Nestlé was instrumental in helping to develop. The 'Gender Equality' and 'Reduced Inequalities' SDGs are both supported by our strong cultural diversity in the UK and Ireland where we are enhancing the gender balance in our workforce and empowering women across the entire value chain, and in continuously assessing and addressing the human rights impacts across all our business activities.
