Nestle SA posted a 8.9 percent rise in first-half profits but predicted that the remainder of 2012 will be challenging. Helped by strong demand from emerging markets, price rises and cost-cutting, the world's biggest food and beverage maker said Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012, its net profit rose to 5.120 billion Swiss francs (US dollar 5.27 billion) from January to June, up from 4.703 billion francs in the comparable 2011 period.
