The Nestle Company was founded in 1867 by Henri Nestle, who, at a time of high infant mortality, developed a milk-based food for babies unable to feed from their mothers. Since then nutrition has been at the very heart of the Nestle business.
As we confront the challenges of the 21st century, nutrition is more than ever the key to our company’s future. While we remain loyal to the principles and ideals that drove Henri Nestle, we are adapting to meet the changing needs of consumers – because we recognize that our business is not just the things we make, but the role those things play in making life better for our customers.
We sum this philosophy up in four simple words – Good Food, Good Life - reflecting in everything we do and extending beyond what we make. On our path to being the leading food, nutrition, health and wellness company, we will continue to ensure that we do everything we can build, nurture and develop family and community wherever we are.
