We believe that embracing the science of nutrition can transform how we manage our health.
Built on decades of innovation and dedication, Nestlé Health Science was founded in 2011 by people passionate about the power of nutrition. Since then, we've changed a lot as a company, but our commitment to healthier lives certainly hasn't. From newborn babies to the most senior citizens, we provide nutrition and nourishment where it's needed most.
And to achieve that, it all comes down to science. Through extensive research and development, working with healthcare providers and focusing on innovation, we’re bringing the latest advances in nutrition to the world, because we're committed to customers, patients and caregivers everywhere. We'll help them live their lives at their best—that's a promise.
Healthy lives, healthy planet
We make our products with sustainability in mind. In 2020, all our factories reduced their landfill waste to zero, and over the last decade we've made big reductions to our greenhouse gas emissions and water usage. By 2025, we aim to run our entire company on renewable energy, while making every bit of our packaging recyclable or reusable.
We also seek out the most sustainable options for our patients and customers, using real foods and organic ingredients, while offering carbon neutral brands like Garden of Life and Nuun.
Our growth goals
We want people to live their healthiest lives, through nutrition rooted in science. We have a range of brands to help them do this across over 140 countries—but we're not stopping there. By expanding our offering around the globe and constantly working on the latest nutritional innovations, we'll be helping more and more people maintain or improve their health, while proving ourselves as leaders in the science of nutrition.
How we're structured
We're a globally managed business within Nestlé, and play a key role in its nutrition, health and wellness strategy. That means we benefit from all the great resources of the Nestlé Group, while having the freedom to pursue our own opportunities.
We forge new partnerships, invest in companies with similar goals to us, and acquire companies that complement our global portfolio. Based at the Nestlé Research Center in Vers-chez-les-Blancs, Switzerland, we have market-level headquarters in all the countries we operate in.
A team of experts
From newborn babies to our most senior citizens, we provide nourishment for all ages. Whether it’s people who want to fill nutritional gaps in their active lifestyles, or those who need special nourishment for certain conditions, we give them what they need to maintain and improve their health. With expertise ranging from medical nutrition to active lifestyle nutrition to pharmaceutical solutions, we work with a global network of healthcare providers, healthcare facilities, pharmacists, academics and researchers to develop the best options for individual needs.
