Nestle profits grow amid raw food price rise

Swiss food giant Nestle has announced a net profit in 2010 of 34.2bn Swiss francs ($35.6bn; £22.1bn), up from 10.4bn Swiss francs in 2009.

Despite the soaring costs of raw materials, Nestle has so far been able to avoid passing on the cost to its customers.
