Nestlé’s competitive strategiesare associated mainly with foreign directinvestment in dairy and other foodbusinesses. Nestlé aims to balance salesbetween low risk but low growth countriesof the developed world and high risk andpotentially high growth markets of Africaand Latin America.
When operating in a developed market,Nestlé strives to grow and gain economiesof scale through foreign direct investment inbig companies.In the developing markets, Nestlé grows bymanipulating ingredients or processingtechnology for local conditions, and employthe appropriate brand.
Another strategy that has been successfulfor Nestlé involves striking strategicpartnerships with other large companies. Inthe early 1990s, Nestlé entered into analliance with Coca Cola in ready-to-drinkteas and coffees in order to benefit fromCoca Cola’s worldwide bottling system andexpertise in prepared beverages.
In Asia, Nestlé’s strategy hasbeen to acquire local companies in order toform a group of autonomous regionalmanagers who know more about the cultureof the local markets than Americans orEuropeans.Nestlé’s strong cash flow and comfortabledebt-equity ratio leave it with ample musclefor takeovers.
