However, Nestle has chosen to expand in related diversification strategies, so we might want to see how they just chose to compete in the Plant-based food market, which is part of several of their sbu. What was the strategy they used? Now that some of their products have been commercialized, what would you recommend their next growth strategy be and why?
2) As you look at the strategies between sbus, can you identify where you could describe where they used a vertical integration strategy? Where they used a horizontal integration strategy?
3) As mentioned Nestle is very diversified consumer-package goods company, where have they diversified into related businesses? Where have they diversified into unrelated businesses?
