Responsible sourcing and the Nestlé Supplier Code



Did you know that we work with almost 165,000 direct suppliers and 695,000 individual farmers worldwide?

We’re committed to fostering responsible practices in our supply chain, while ensuring that our sourcing and supplier relationships deliver a competitive advantage.

Our Nestlé Supplier Code (pdf, 2Mb) and its Appendix (pdf, 1Mb) set out the non-negotiable minimum standards that we ask our suppliers, their employees, agents and subcontractors to respect and to adhere to at all times when conducting business. It's an integral part of all purchase orders and supply contracts and we are integrating it into all other commercial agreements.
