Nestlé places Scandinavian headquarters in Copenhagen

Jan 14, 2019 Nestlé will streamline its Nordic operations by centralising R&D and marketing units in a new headquarters in Copenhagen. Excellent infrastructure and strong competences in food and nutrition research were decisive for Nestlé’s choice.

The global food and beverage giant Nestlé has chosen Copenhagen for its new Scandinavian headquarters. The Copenhagen headquarters will streamline Nestlé’s Nordic operations by regionalising Nordic marketing and R&D activities within nutrition and food research.

From Copenhagen, Nestlé expects to strengthen its position as the preferred provider of healthy food products in the Nordic countries, which are known for their active and healthy life style, as well as on the global market.

Choosing Copenhagen over other Scandinavian locations is a well-considered strategy:

The Copenhagen region is ideal for Nestlé’s business strategy for the Nordics. Denmark is a leader in food and nutritional sciences, and the Copenhagen region is home to many educational institutions, supplying the labour market with skilled talent relevant for our business.
