Nestlé is more than just the largest food and
beverage company in the world. Increasingly,
Nestlé is becoming the world’s leader in nutrition,
health and wellness.
From the start, nutrition has been at the core of
our business. However, today we place far greater
emphasis on it – and on health and wellness.
Our Corporate Wellness Unit and the individual
business units are driving forces in bringing
Good Food, Good Life to all our consumers.
1415Nestlé. Good Food, Good Life
We use four simple words to describe what we believe in
and what we offer consumers around the world: “Good
Food, Good Life“.
Food and beverages play an increasingly important role
in people’s lives – not only because of the enjoyment and
social pleasure of eating together, but more and more in
terms of personal health and nutrition.
Although it’s important, nutrition is only one aspect of
“Good Food, Good Life“. Consistent quality and safety, as
well as value-for-money and convenience, all play a part.
Above all, great taste is fundamental to our products and
our consumers‘ appreciation of good food.
Research & Development
It’s the task of our Research & Development (R&D) to
apply nutritional science and expertise to create products
that combine great taste with nutritional benefits. We
firmly believe that our research can make better food so
that more and more people live a better life.
Through continuous innovation of new products and
renovation of existing products, Nestlé is creating and
enhancing hundreds of Nestlé products, especially in
terms of their nutritional benefits.
The Nestlé Group invests around CHF 1.5 billion in R&D
every year. It’s more than any other food company – both
as ßßa percentage of sales and in absolute terms.

16Around 3,500 people from
over 50 countries work in
Nestlé’s worldwide network
of 17 research, development
and product testing centres.
The Nestlé Research Center
in Switzerland is our major
think-tank. It’s a constant
source of new ideas and
scientific knowledge that
feeds the pipeline for all
It covers over 100 different
professional areas –
science, the life sciences,
raw materials, ingredients
and production processes.
17Nutrition: the core of the Nestlé business
Nutrition has always been at the core of our business.
Indeed, the Company was founded, back in 1866, on the
launch of an innovative, nutritious baby food.
Now, almost 150 years later, we live in a very different
world. The global population has grown to over six billion.
People are living longer. Living standards have improved.
Life styles have changed.
These, and other demographic factors, have had a
considerable influence on Nestlé – both in terms of the
products we make and the way we run our business.
Nestlé today is at the forefront of providing consumers
with food and beverage solutions that generate a long,
Priority on nutrition, health and wellness
More than ever before, we are putting our priority on
foods and beverages that contribute to nutrition, health
and wellness – for everyone, and that includes babies,
growing children, senior citizens and other people with
special dietary needs.
The Corporate Wellness Unit is responsible for driving
the nutrition, health and wellness orientation across the
whole of Nestlé – covering the entire portfolio of our
products, all over the world. The Corporate Wellness
Unit’s “Wellness in Action” strategy aims consistently to
deliver better tasting, better-for-you nutritional products
We have a global network of Wellness Champions in all
our business units and in every country. Their job is to
facilitate, inspire, motivate and drive wellness initiatives.
