‘Glocal’ they call it: a way to be global but also very close to local economy, people and environment. Nespresso is a good testimonial of this. The Company has recently received the first ever Vaud International Business Award. It was delivered directly to Nespresso CEO, Jean-Marc Duvoisin,  by the Canton of Vaud’s Department of Economy and Sport, the Vaud Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CVCI), and the Canton of Vaud Economic Development Department (DEV), on November 27 at a ceremony at IMD Business School in Lausanne.
“This is obviously a great honour for Nespresso to be recognized with this award – said Duvoisin – It demonstrates that Nespresso shares common values with Vaud such as quality, innovation and know-how, as well as quality of life. It is also a powerful symbol and recognition of the work of all employees who have contributed to the success of Nespresso since its inception. The canton has given us a lot and I believe that we’ve given back. We shouldn’t forget that Nespresso was born here in 1986. This is where our first capsules were produced and continue to be, this is where our success-story started.”
The jury which selected the winners said Nespresso was recognized for its contributions to the international reputation of Vaud, for its local production, the creation of sustainable employment and its international expansion. Nespresso was awarded first place in the category of Swiss companies which export abroad.
