Founded in 2011, Nestlé Health Science (NHSc) is a globally recognized leader in the
field of nutritional science, committed to redefining the management of health. We offer
an extensive portfolio of science-based consumer health, medical nutrition and
NHSc is headquartered in Switzerland and we have more than 5,000 employees around
the world, with a presence in 45 countries.
Approximately half of our business is dedicated to medical nutrition (products that are
available only through healthcare providers) and half is dedicated to consumer care, or
over-the-counter, nutritional solutions. We cover the spectrum from newborns to the
most senior citizens, from individuals looking to enhance their fitness performance to
those that need extra special nutritional care due to illnesses.
Our medical nutrition portfolio includes products and services recommended by
healthcare professionals for patients with specific dietary needs related to illnesses,
disease states or special challenges of different life stages. These products are most
relevant for the institutional sector – including hospitals, care homes and homecare –
and are reimbursed by insurers or public health services. The current portfolio is focused
on Pediatric Care & Food Allergy, Adult Medical Care and Acute Care.
Consumers are increasingly health-aware and informed, looking for nutritional solutions
to help them lead healthier lives. In consumer care, we are combining science-based
innovation and global reach to address individuals’ unmet and emerging needs. Our
products are found in pharmacies, retail shops and on the internet. We are focused on
the fast developing areas of healthy aging, healthy growth, gut health and metabolic
health, obesity in particular.
Our commitment to science-backed solutions and research means that we provide
nutritional solutions that can make a real difference in the quality of life of customers,
patients and caregivers. Our Nestlé Product Technology Center in Bridgewater, New
Jersey, opened in 2018 and allows us to further strengthen our commitment to harness
the power of nutrition to empower healthier lives.
