Nestlé recently announced that the global headquarters of Nespresso will move from Lausanne to Vevey. The announcement confirms rumours that have been circulating for some time.
While the move will affect around 350 staff no redundancies are planned.
From 2021, Nespresso’s global management team will be housed in a building it owns containing the Nest museum near Vevey’s train station. The global Nespresso team is currently spread across two rented sites in Lausanne, one on avenue de Rhodanie and one on avenue d’Ouchy. Nestlé is moving them from two rented offices into one it owns.
A museum since 2016, the site in Vevey will have up to CHF 20 million spent on it to create more office space. The museum, which has had nearly 130,000 visitors, will remain open until the end of September 2019.
