Swiss Post has issued a stamp honouring Nestlé founder Henri Nestlé, as the world’s leading food company celebrates its 150th anniversary. He invented a life-saving infant food in an era when many infants died of malnutrition.

Born in Germany in 1814, Henri Nestlé trained as a pharmacist before moving to Vevey in Switzerland, where Nestlé is still headquartered.

In 1867, he launched a safe, nutritious infant food called Farine Lactée, which won him global renown. He produced it in a factory that he built in Vevey, which features on the new stamp.
