Message From The Region Head

Welcome to the Nestlé Equatorial African Region website.

Nestlé Equatorial African Region was created eight years ago with its headquarters based in Nairobi, Kenya. The region covers 20 countries in Africa. The countries include:

Angola, Burundi, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Southern Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The aim of the region is to take advantage of our unique strengths to produce and supply products that are nutritious and always available to our consumers here in Africa. This has been possible through our four factories in Angola, DRC, Kenya and Zimbabwe, our continuous expansion across the region and most importantly developing our work force. Our people are our greatest assets.

As the leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness Company, we are committed in improving people’s quality of life at every stage of their lives. This requires a deep understanding of nutrition, and access to tastier and healthier food and beverages; this is what our consumers demand and what society needs.

Our goal is to continuously work on our product portfolio to renovate and fortify our products. We recently produced and introduced into the market a number of fortified products such as: NESTUM Completo in Angola, NIDO ESSENTIA Nutripak in DRC; NESTLÉ CADA DIA in Angola; MAGGI iron fortified cubes in both DRC and Rwanda; CERELAC Probiotics and CERELAC enhanced Iron & Omega 3 for cognitive development for the entire region.

I am very proud that this year, Nestlé celebrates its 150th anniversary; 150 years of passion for nutrition.

This milestone gives life to Nestlé’s firm belief that for a company to prosper over the long term and create value for shareholders, it must create value for society at the same time. Our region has lived through this belief and great journey and partnership with the communities around us.

As we celebrate this milestone, I would like to thank our employees, consumers, customers, stakeholders, for your continuous support. I sincerely hope that you enjoy going through our web site. We look forward to working with you for another 150 year journey of ‘Good Food, Good Life.’
