In the 1860s Henri Nestle of Switzerland developed a food suitable for babies unable to breastfeed. The value of this product was soon recognised and it began to be sold across Europe. In 1905 Nestlé merged with the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company and soon they were operating in the UK, Germany and Spain.

In the 1920s, after the wartime demand for condensed milk came to an end, Nestle expanded into chocolate. World War II was a great help for sales of Nestlé's newest product - Nescafe as it became the staple drink of the U S military.

During the 1960s and 70s Nestlé merged with, amongst others, Crosse & Blackwell and Findus and took a shareholding in L'Oreal. In the 1980s they acquired American food giant, Carnation.

Nestlé are now the world's biggest food and drinks company with sales of CHF 91 billion. Around a quarter of a million people are employed by Nestlé worldwide.
