Nestlé has inaugurated its new discovery centre, nest, with festivities organised in Switzerland for its 150th anniversary. The President of the Swiss Confederation, Johann Schneider-Ammann, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nestlé, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, and Nestlé’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Bulcke, were all present, surrounded by more than 250 personalities from Swiss politics, economics, and culture.

Located in the historic district of Vevey where Henri Nestlé invented his ‘farine lactée’ and established his first production plant, this new high place of Swiss cultural life will allow visitors to get acquainted with Nestlé and its authentic past, but also to openly explore current food challenges and experience a passionate vision of nutrition in a fun and interactive way. Construction of nest was started 3 years ago and brought together the expertise of historians, architects and designers under the direction of Catherine Saurais. nest will open to the public on June 15.

Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Nestlé, says: “Nest fully expresses the vision we have of our company: a human company, transparent, which assumes its responsibility and keeps its leadership in creating value for its shareholders as well as for all the people in the countries in which we operate.”

Paul Bulcke: Nestlé’s Chief Executive Officer, adds: “nest is a return home, the nest, in the first Nestlé factory. It is also a place dedicated to culture, knowledge and pleasure, where we share our passion for nutrition and values with the rest of the world.”
