Nestlé has announced its intention to relocate the global headquarters of Nespresso from Lausanne, Switzerland to its site in Vevey, Switzerland.
Approximately 350 Nespresso employees will relocate to Vevey beginning in early 2021.
Starting in 2021, Nespresso will continue to develop its worldwide business from the site in Vevey where Henri Nestlé invented ‘farine lactée’ (infant cereal) in 1867.
Between 2013 and 2016, Nestlé completely renovated its historic buildings in the former industrial area in Vevey. It created a modern campus including meeting rooms, a café, historical archives and the ‘nest’ museum, as well as the former Nestlé tinsmith’s workshop. These facilities will be redeveloped into new innovative workspaces to accommodate the Nespresso teams.
Work is expected to begin in October 2019 and will be completed by early 2021.
