While the Nestlé India family haslearnt to cope with the operating volatility in the pandemic, recent sharp escalations in key raw material prices poses challenges that we will resolutely respond to, while maintaining the integrity of our business model.
In these pandemic times, as a responsible organisation, our PEOPLE are at the centre of our attention and we are taking all possible steps to take care of them as best as we can. In collaboration with authorities, we are looking at setting up vaccination camps across our manufacturing locations. This will provide with ease, much needed vaccination of our factory employeesin the eligible age group.

Our strong commitment to the educated youth in India gained new strides with an additional 1000 internships through our Nesternship program for young professionals this year. Which adds to our efforts to offer nearly 1000 interns last year with worthwhile project exposure.
At a time when the clarion call to generate employment opportunities assumes new meaning, we have remained unwavering in our hiring commitments. In recent times, we have welcomed over 500 new members to our Nestlé family across our operating locations. In addition, the scale of our operations is also creating indirect employment opportunities in the surrounding communities.
Sustainability is at the core of our operations. Our determination to make a difference in the area of plastic waste management, has shown significant results. I am happy to share that across ALL our brands, we managed plastic equivalent to post consumer plastic waste generated by the brands in 2020, thereby ensuring plastic neutrality."
