INNOVATION LEADER: Nescafé Dolce Gusto is just one of Nestlé's pioneering innovations.
Nestlé is named one of the 50 Most Innovative Companies in the Bloomberg BusinessWeek rankings for 2010. The company is ranked number 36, up two places from last year. The assessment is based on a poll of senior executives that was done by the Boston Consulting Group as well as the financial performance of the most-voted companies.
There have been numerous Nestlé innovations over the years. A very short shortlist from the last 5 years would include Nescafé Dolce Gusto, Nestum infant cereals with prebiotics, Purina Overweight Management and Diabetes Management formulas for pets, and Nescafé Green Blend – a blend of “green” and roasted coffee beans, which provides an increased level of antioxidants while delivering an authentic roasted coffee taste.
