Nestle S.A. Company Snapshot
Nestle S.A. operates within the Bottled and canned soft drinks sector. In addition to historical fundamental analyses, the complete report available to purchase compares Nestle with three other major food companies: Unilever N.V. of the Netherlands (2016 sales of 52.71 billion Euro [US$62.02 billion] of which 38% was Personal Care), Danone SA of France (2016 sales: 21.94 billion Euro [US$25.82 billion] of which 49% was Fresh Dairy Products), and General Mills, Inc. which is based in the United States (2017 sales of $15.62 billion of which 65% was U.S. Retail). Note: not all of these companies have the same fiscal year: the most recent data for each company are being used.

Sales Analysis. During the year ended December of 2016, sales at Nestle were 89.47 billion Swiss Francs (US$90.10 billion). This is a very small increase of 0.8% versus 2015, when the company's sales were 88.79 billion Swiss Francs. Despite this increase, sales are still below the level achieved in 2014, when Nestle reported sales of 91.61 billion Swiss Francs. The sales level in 2016 was fairly close to the level five years ago: in 2011, Nestle had sales of 83.64 billion Swiss Francs. Sales of Nestle Waters saw an increase that was more than double the company's growth rate: sales were up 3.9% in 2016, from 7.63 billion Swiss Francs to 7.93 billion Swiss Francs. Nestle also saw significant increases in sales in Zone Americas (up 2.0% to 26.36 billion Swiss Francs) and Zone Asia, Oceania and Africa (up 1.1% to 14.49 billion Swiss Francs) . Not all segments of Nestle experienced an increase in sales in 2016: sales of Nestle Nutrition fell 1.3% to 10.33 billion Swiss Francs. Nestle also experienced decreases in sales in Zone Europe (down 0.9% to 16.25 billion Swiss Francs) .
