Switzerland Earns Nestle

Switzerland Earns Nestle

** FILE ** A Feb. 22, 2007 file photo shows Nestle's chairman and CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, left, arriving for a news conference of the food and drinks giant in Vevey, Switzerland. Nestle SA, the worlds biggest food and drink company, reported a 6.1 percent growth in first-half net profits Thursday, Aug. 7, 2008 despite rising transport and raw materials costs and slowing bottled water sales amid criticism from environmentalists. Nestle said it earned 5.21 billion Swiss francs (US$4.93 billion, euro 3.19 billion) during the first six months of the year, an increase of 298 million francs (US$282 million, euro 182 million) on the same period in 2007.
