The world's largest food group was a client of Credit Suisse, Schneider told broadcaster TeleZueri in an interview to be shown on Tuesday evening, and had been following the collapse of Switzerland's second-biggest bank.
"We have worked closely with Credit Suisse for many decades in a spirit of trust," Schneider told the broadcaster.
"You can see from such an example that Switzerland as a business location and a financial centre are very closely linked. We now have to see how to reorganise our banking relationships, both with Swiss and international providers."
Swiss Government Intervention
Schneider said the intervention by the Swiss government, the central bank and financial market regulator to engineer a merger with UBS had stabilised the situation and restored confidence.
Speaking about Nestlé, Schneider said the company had made a good start to 2023, although further price rises by the company were likely, Schneider said, to offset inflation of raw material costs.
'Very Limited' Impact
Price increases had so far only had a "very limited" impact on consumer spending, Schneider said.
"As inflation continues, and then also affects our own profitability, we will have to adjust prices," Schneider said.
"We will continue to do this in a responsible way, we don't want to be a price driver. We respond to inflation, we don't fuel it," he said.
The food maker was also working on savings to reach its goal for a full-year underlying trading operating profit margin target of between 17% and 17.5% , Schneider added.
