From January 1st 2011, Nestlé Health Science, with proprietary access the research of Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences set-up simultaneously with our own company, we are well positioned to fulfil our objective to change the approach to health and disease through innovative nutritional therapies.

Formed in 2011, Nestlé Health Science is the first of a new breed of health-science company. Advancing the therapeutic role of nutrition to change the course of health management for consumers, patients, doctors, nurses and our partners in healthcare: this is our focus.

Through investing in innovation and leveraging leading edge science, we are striving to forge a new industry of nutritional therapies based upon inherently safe nutritional therapies with relevant levels of quality of life benefits and proven clinical and health economic value.

We are a global company, headquartered in Epalinges (near Lausanne), Switzerland, and employing around 3,000 people worldwide. Founded on the HealthCare Nutrition business of the Nestlé Group, we are building upon firm foundations. Already, we produce almost a billion science-based nutritional solutions per year that are either available through retail and pharmacy outlets (Consumer Care) or recommended by healthcare professionals in institutions (Medical Nutrition). It’s about discovering and extending nutrition’s therapeutic role from targeting nutritional gaps/needs associated with particular health conditions, to bring forward products with a more direct therapeutic impact.

By harnessing scientific and clinical advances, and bringing forward innovations addressing unmet and underserved needs in new effective and cost-effective ways, we are forging a more integral role for nutrition in health management. External focus is key to this quest, and we have already made some key acquisitions and investment moves to enhance our capabilities and innovation potential.
