The news spread like wildfire. Henri Nestlé realised that his product could truly help infants everywhere. Nestlé Infant Cereals were soon being used throughout Europe and then the entire world, establishing its position as global pioneer in Infant Nutrition – a role Nestlé continues to champion today.
Leading the way with ground breaking innovations
Nestlé’s passion for innovation is legendary: vitamins were added to the Infant Cereals in the 1920s, the same year their discovery was awarded a Nobel Prize, and decades before they became mandatory.
In the 1940s Nestlé used the latest technology to develop an ‘instant’ recipe, making the product even more convenient and easy to prepare.
