  • Starbucks and Nestlé announced they will form a global coffee alliance to accelerate and grow the global reach of Starbucks brands in Consumer Packaged Goods and Foodservice

Nestle will use the Starbucks brand in its Nespresso and Dolce Gusto capsule systems next year.

Pablo Zuanic, an analyst at Susquehanna International Group, noted that the deal will increase Nestle's share of the United States coffee market - which now stands at just 3%.

Nestle won't get any physical assets in the deal.

Kenyan dam bursts causing "huge destruction", deaths
Even before this week's dam-burst, rains had killed 132 people and displaced 222,000 in Kenya alone, according to the government. Local leaders are now investigating whether the farmer had a licence to erect the dams.

Starbucks has sold the rights to their bagged coffee and coffee pods to Nestlé for £5.28 billion. The company had originally slated the opening of its first Italian branch for early a year ago but the project began to run behind schedule and as delays mounted Starbucks made a decision to take on Italy's coffee drinkers with a landmark opening. A willingness to pay for exotic beans and speciality drinks means companies can brew up richer profit margins than in mainstream packaged food.

The Seattle-based company said it now expected to return some $US20 billion to shareholders through buy-backs and dividends by 2020. Why so much? Nescafe and Nespresso don't carry anywhere near the heft in America that the Starbucks brand does, with $2 billion in annual sales.

As part of the deal, about 500 Starbucks employees will join Nestle but operations will remain in Seattle.
