The York-based hub has been designed to simplify, standardise and centralise Nestlé’s supply chain operation across the continent.
Nestlé UK director of supply chain David Hix said: “I am pleased that York was selected as the location of Nestlé’s new European transport hub. This new ‘Centre of Excellence’ joins our existing UK team and will utilise the very latest in technology to manage Nestlé’s transportation activities throughout Europe.
Confidence in York
“It is a great sign of confidence in the city and our UK team’s achievements that the hub was selected to be in York.”
The new European Transport Hub is based at Nestlé House on the York campus, which is home to about 2,500 members of staff, a large confectionery factory and a research and development centre.
Meanwhile, last week, Nestlé was the top-ranked global food and drink innovator, according to research by Nielsen.
The Top 25 Breakthrough Innovations league celebrated recent product innovations across various fast-moving consumer goods categories in Europe and included cosmetic and home care products, with Nestlé taking the top spot with its Bon Pari Koshmariki iced lollies.
