Nestlé’s foundation was built in 1867 on humanitarian needs and social responsibility when Henri Nestlé, a trained pharmacist, developed a healthy and economical alternative source of infant nutrition to save the life of an infant who could not be breastfed.
Today, more than 140 years later, Nestlé continues with its founder’s legacy to improve lives.
