We believe that Good food, Good life is best delivered by:

We play to win in all our categories while pursuing higher growth in coffee, pet care, infant nutrition, water and nutritional health.
Our history begins in 1866, with the foundation of the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company. Henri Nestlé develops a breakthrough infant food in 1867, and in 1905 the company he founded merges with Anglo-Swiss, to form what is now known as the Nestlé Group. During this period cities grow and railways and steamships bring down commodity costs, spurring international trade in consumer goods.
