History across three centuries

Henri Nestlé (1814 - 1890)

The history of Nestlé began in Vevey, Switzerland, in1867 when founder Henri Nestlé created one of the first infant foods in response to the need for a healthy and affordable product to serve as an alternative for mothers who could not breastfeed their babies. He called his product Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé.

Within a few years, the Farine Lactée product was marketed in Europe. Nestlé called his company Société Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé. In 1874, Nestlé developed its condensed milk product, to contend with the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company, a competitor that was producing cheese, instant formulas and had opened Europe’s first sweetened condensed milk factory in Cham, Switzerland, to market the first condensed milk, MILKMAID.
