Living Wage Foundation Director, Rhys Moore said: “The accreditation of Nestlé as a Living Wage employer marks a significant milestone in the campaign to tackle in-work poverty. Nestlé is the first FMCG company to join the Living Wage movement, bringing the Living Wage to every shelf, shop and home in the UK. We hope that the leadership they have shown will encourage others in this industry to follow suit and improve conditions for those at the lowest end of the pay scale and sub-contracted staff."

"We are aware that Nestlé is going above and beyond the basic requirements of becoming an accredited employer, and is extending their commitment to graduate, internship and school leaver programmes. This is fantastic news, demonstrating that businesses who can, should do more wherever possible.”
