The US-based coffee giants Starbucks and food company, Nestlé, has confirmed a $7.15bn deal that will see Nestle granted perpetual rights to advertise Starbucks Consumer Packaged Goods and Foodservice products worldwide and outside of Starbucks outlets.

As part of the joint-venture, the firms will collaborate on the current Starbucks range of roast and ground coffee, whole beans, as well as instant and portioned coffee.

It is thought that the move will enable both companies to prioritise innovation that will allow Starbucks to keep on enhancing its product and produce the best coffee possible.

Mark Schneider, Nestlé CEO, said: “This partnership demonstrates our growth agenda in action, giving Nestlé an unparalleled position in the coffee business with a full suite of innovative brands. With Starbucks, Nescafé and Nespresso we bring together the world’s most iconic coffee brands.”
