Nestlé can trace its origin back to 1866 when the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company opened the first European condensed milk factory in Cham, Switzerland. One year later, Henri Nestlé, a trained pharmacist, launched one of the world’s first prepared infant cereals, ‘Farine lactée’, in Vevey, Switzerland.
Today, Nestlé employs around 273,000 people and has factories or operations in almost every country globally. With their headquarters still based in the Swiss town of Vevey, Nestlé had sales of CHF 84.3 billion in 2020.
Nestlé’s portfolio covers almost every food and beverage category –offering products and services for all stages of life, every moment of the day, helping people care for themselves and their families.
