Founded in 2011, Nestlé Health Science is the first of a new breed of health science companies. Our goal is to advance the therapeutic role of nutrition and change the course of health management for consumers, patients, physicians, nurses, and healthcare partners alike.
By investing in innovation and harnessing cutting-edge science, Nestlé Health Science aims to build a new nutritional therapies industry based on inherently safe nutritional therapies with relevant quality-of-life benefits and proven clinical and health economic value.
Already today, Nestlé Health Science produces nearly one billion science-based nutritional solutions per year, either available in retail outlets and pharmacies or recommended by healthcare professionals in health centers. These solutions cover a spectrum of ages and health conditions – from pediatric allergies to malnutrition in the frail elderly. Click here for more details.
