The world’s largest food company continued to sell off flagging business units such as PowerBar, Juicy Juice brand, and the majority of its Jenny Craig operation as it faced a weakened European consumer market, changing customer tastes, and a slowdown in emerging markets. The makeover is part of management’s plan to transform Nestlé into a nutrition and wellness company, spurred by investments in skincare and health products. Profits got a big boost from the sale of a portion of its stake in L’Oréal.
