Travel News Asia 26 March 2004

Nestl R&D Center has signed on as a senior partner with the Cornell Hotel Schools Center for Hospitality Research in a major commitment to supporting research that aims to advance operating practices in the hospitality industry.

We are very pleased to add the worlds largest food and beverage company at this new level of sponsorship, said Gary Thompson, executive director of the Center. This is further evidence that the Center is gaining significant traction in building a preeminent research organization that has the intellectual and financial resources to serve the needs of the entire hospitality industry.

Nestl operates seven research centers, nine product technology centers, and the Nestl Research Center in Switzerland, where the company was founded in 1867.

Nestl has a strong commitment to foodservice, an area that CHR will be exploring through research projects. "Foodservice is one of the fastest growing segments of the food industry," said Elaine Wedral, Ph.D., Vice President of Nestl Product Technology Center in New Milford, Connecticut. "Our foodservice customers are multi-leveled, from restaurant operators and hotel wholesale suppliers to end-users. Due to that complexity, consumer insight and research is critical to better understand our customers and their needs. We are therefore especially pleased to support Cornells efforts to gather and share this valuable research data with our industry."
