2013 will mark a year of renewed innovation across the Nespresso coffee range, with new Grands Crus introductions to further shape the category and provide new sensory experiences for Club Members and consumers.
As part of a focus on long-term business development and to meet growing global consumer demand for its highest quality coffee in the years ahead, the company announced that it will build a third production centre in Romont, Switzerland. This CHF 300 million investment follows the completion of the extension of the Avenches Production & Distribution Centre during the second half of 2012.
In November 2012, the company announced that Jean-Marc Duvoisin, currently Deputy Executive Vice President Human Resources at Nestlé SA, would succeed Richard Girardot as the CEO of Nestlé Nespresso SA, effective March 1, 2013, ensuring strategic continuity for the business. Richard Girardot will leave to take on responsibility for the Nestlé business in France after having guided the company through a period of unprecedented growth. Mr. Duvoisin's deep knowledge of the company, his international experience and recognised leadership make him the right candidate to lead the company expansion, innovation and internationalisation in an increasingly challenging competitive environment.
