1.1 History:

NESTLE, is one of the top class & leading products manufacturing company in worlds,
which starts it’s operation in 1866 by Henri Nestlé and is today the world's biggest food
and beverage company. Nestlé employ around 250,000 people from more than 86
countries and have factories or operations in almost every country in the world. The
history of Nestlé began in Switzerland in 1867 . Henry Nestle, a chemist from Frankfurt
who had settled in Vevey, became interested in infant feeding. To satisfy a clear need ,
he developed and produced a milk-based food for babies whose mothers could not
nurse them. The new product soon became well-known worldwide under the name of
“Farine Lactee Nestle ( Nestle Milk Food )”.In order to expand into a broader category
and meet more people’s needs, the Nestle Company’s first diversification occurred in
1905 when it merged with the Anglo- Swiss Condenced Milk Company (1866). Today,
processing milk food is still the company’s chief activity together with the other
products of Nestle family such as chocolates, instant milk based drinks culinary
products, frozen foods, ice cream, dairy products and infant foods. Nestle is still
primarily concerned with the field of nutrition, but it has also acquired interest in
pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries. As a result of the company’s initiative and
bold activity, it has grown into a huge organization, nearly 500 factories worldwide.
Nestle products are now widely distributed on all continents and sold in more than 100

The Nestle Group is exposed to foreign currency risk from transactions and translation.
Transactional exposures arise from transactions in foreign currency. They are managed
within a prudent and systematic hedging policy in accordance with the Group’s specific
business needs through the use of currency forwards, futures, swaps and options.

Exchange differences recorded in the income statement represented a loss of CHF 99

million in 2017 ( 2016 : loss of CHF 147 million ). They are allocated to the appropriate
headings of expenses by function. Translation exposure arises from the consolidation of the
financial statements of foreign operations in Swiss francs, which is, in principle, not
hedged. Value at Risk (VaR) based on historic data for a 250-day period and a confidence
level of 95% results in a potential one-day loss for currency risk of less than CHF 10
million in 2017 and 2016.

The Group cannot predict the future movements in exchange rates, therefore the above VaR
number neither represents actual losses nor considers the effects of favorable movements in
underlying variables. Accordingly, the VaR number may only be considered indicative of
future movements to the extent the historic market patterns repeat in the future.
