Our history


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.

The Nestlé story

Nestlé is a Swiss Company in the food, beverage, nutrition and wellness business. 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.
