Inditex is a fashion retailer which dates back to 1963 when it started life in a small workshop making women’s clothing. Today it has over 6,390 stores throughout the world. Through its history the Group has evolved to become the business it is today reaching many notable milestones along its journey. But it has always remained focused on listening closely to its customers to offer them the fashions they desire. This strong customer orientation would give rise, years later, to the launch of the first Zara store in 1975. This was followed by the brand’s international expansion at the end of the 1980s and the successive launch of new retail concepts: Pull&Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe. This customer focus underpins an organisational structure that encompasses all stages of the fashion value chain (design, manufacturing, distribution and sale in proprietary stores). The customer promise is also the driving force behind the integration of our sustainable and environmental policies used throughout the Group’s supply chain. The Group’s brands strive to sell fashionable products of the highest quality. Inditex is committed to its customers; which means that its 128,000-strong workforce is focused on staying true to its word. A state of the art logistics system centred in Spain helps deliver new products to all of the Group’s stores twice weekly to meet our customers’ needs. Nestle is the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company. Our mission of “Good Food, Good Life” is to provide consumers with the best tasting, most nutritious choices in a wide range of food and beverage categories and eating occasions, from morning to night. Nestlé can trace its origins back to 1866, when the first European condensed milk factory was opened in Cham, Switzerland, by the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company. One year later, Henri Nestlé, a trained pharmacist, launched one of the world’s first prepared infant cereals ‘Farine lactée’ in Vevey, Switzerland. The two companies merged in 1905 to become the Nestle we know today with headquarters still based in the Swiss town of Vevey. We employ around 328 000 people and have factories or operations in almost every country in the world. Nestlé sales for 2011 were almost CHF 83.7 bn.
