Global food and beverages manufacturer Nestle says it will continue operating in Zimbabwe despite a number of challenges confronting the country’s economy.

Nestle South Africa chairman and managing director, Bruno Olierhoek told ZTN that the Swiss based company has adjusted its business models to continue staying afloat under the prevailing conditions.  

Olierhoek made the commitment after he and his delegation met President Emmerson Mnangagwa at his Munhumutapa offices in Harare on Thursday.

Nestle has been in Zimbabwe through thick and thin,” Olierhoek said.

He added, “we will try our best to stay in the country despite the situation on the ground.”

In the past five years, the Switzerland based firm has invested more than US$30 million in the country where it has operated for the past 60 years.
