Nestlé Professional, the Nestlé business that supplies the food service out-of-home industry, is rolling out its premium beverage system Viaggi in Europe.

Food service operators can use the barista-style machine to make hot espresso coffee, ‘over-ice’ coffee and chocolate-based drinks for their customers.

First launched in France in 2010, it has now been launched in the United Kingdom.

Viaggi is also being rolled out to Italy and Switzerland this year, as part of an international expansion plan.

“New possibilities”

“The United Kingdom is a strategically important market for Viaggi,” said Marc Caira, Chief Executive Officer for Nestlé Professional.

“I am certain that our beverage system will open up new opportunities with landmark outlets and food service operators in the capital city of London and beyond.”

Combination of ingredients

Viaggi offers 40 customised drinks using Nestlé branded products.

Ingredients include Nescafé Grand Cru coffee extracts, concentrated milk by Nestlé, and a liquid chocolate concentrate made from a selection of cocoas developed by the company’s chocolate brand Cailler.

Manufactured by Italian machine company La Cimbali, the system is easy-to-load for operators.

It prepares drinks at the touch of a button and has an integrated cleaning system to ensure hygiene and safety.

Food service operators benefit from a dedicated commercial and service platform which provides a personalised ‘concierge’ service and reliable support.
