Nestle believed that continuous innovation was key to meeting the company’s growth target which cause in 1986, Nespresso is founded as the fasting growing brand in the Nestle Group. Its headquarters are in Lausanne, Switzerland, with over 7,000 employees worldwide. In 2012, Nespresso had 270 boutiques in 50 countries. The brand’s growth strategy involves three main components: premium coffee capsules, ‘mated’ with specially designed machines, and accompanied by exceptional customer service through the Nespresso Club. Nespresso offers 16 varities of Grand Crus coffee; 7 espresso blends, 3 pure origin espressos, 3 lungos (for larger cups), and 3 decaffeinated coffees. These capsules are designed to be used exclusively with Nespresso-brand machines, which are equipped with a patented high-pressure extraction system designed for optimum release of the coffee. These machines, of which there are 29 models, are developed with 6 machine partners, and Antoine Cahen, from Ateliers du Nord in Lausanne, designs most of them.

Market trends evident in the late 1980s supported this idea as Cafes and Bistros were opening across Europe and the success of gourmet and specialty coffee chains in the US had led espresso to be perceived as a trendy, socially elite drink.
2. Marketing Plan
a. Product
Nespresso introduced modifications to the design of the coffee capsules that cut material costs while making them recyclable. Machines kept being produced in Switzerland under exclusive agreement with a leading manufacturer of espresso machines. To support global market, machine partnerships were subsequently developed with several international producers and distributors of household appliances like Matsushita, Krups, Phillips, Alessi, Jura and Magimix.
