Nestlé is the world’s largest food and beverage company. We have more than 2000 brands ranging from global icons to local favorites, and we are present in 191 countries around the world.
Inspired by the scientific breakthrough of our founder, Henri Nestlé, guided by our values and with nutrition at our core, we work alongside partners to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.
We have defined three overarching ambitions which will guide our work towards achieving our 2020 commitments and supporting the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We want to shape a better and healthier world. This was how we started more than 150 years ago when Henri Nestlé created an infant cereal that saved the life of a child.
Our founder, Henri Nestlé, was a German pharmacist living in Switzerland who developed the world’s first milk food for infants in 1867 to save the life of a neighbour’s child; a premature infant who could tolerate neither his mother's milk nor any of the conventional substitutes and had been given up for lost by local physicians.
Nestlé is the world’s leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness (NHW) Company.
We have been in Sri Lanka for over 100 years and include the country’s best loved brands in our local portfolio.
Our values are reflected in the way we do business, always acting legally and honestly with respect both for our own people and those we do business with. Read more about our business principles.
