I'll give it a shot ...
Inconsistency, 1 and 2 should either both use it or not use it.
Typically, with respect to larger corporations, we look at how that corporation refers to itself.
Having said that, if you look at Nestlé's about page,
it seems that Nestlé refers to itself simply as Nestlé, (as emsr2d2 implied)
"At Nestlé we [...]"it doesn't say:
"At the Nestlé Company we [...]" or "At Nestlé Company we [...]"Simply put, I'd have to say your original source is wrong on 2 counts, inconsistency and improper reference to Nestlé.
