Nestle Suspends Trade With Azerbaijan

On 7 March 2012, the Huff Post's food section reported that Nestle had ceased all trade relations with the country of Azerbaijan.   According to Marina Zibareva, Corporate Communications Manager for Nestle Russia & Eurasia, the decision was based upon delivery problems. While Nestle is the world's largest food company, it does not have an operational office in Azerbaijan and all of its products must be handled through distributors.  The company hopes to resume deliveries "as soon as possible."  It had no further comment on why deliveries were suspended.

The Huff Post article included allegations that the reason for the suspension has to due with corruption and bribery. "Azerbaijan ranks 143 out of 182 on Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index."
