It all started in 1867, when Henri Nestlé created Farine Lactée, the first baby food. It was a mixture of bread, milk and sugar, which managed to save the life of a newborn, laying the foundation for the creation of the largest company in the field of nutrition. From then until today, Nestlé's philosophy has not changed. The company is built and developed based on timeless human values and serves the fundamental principles of justice, honesty and respect for people, society and the environment.

Nestlé's core purpose is to highlight the power of nutrition by enhancing the quality of life for everyone, today and in the future. In Greece, Nestlé has been present for over 120 years. It operates in ten different product categories, employs more than 700 workers and has two factories: the coffee factory in Oinophyta and the Korpi natural mineral water factory in Monastiraki, Vonitsa. In the field of social responsibility, Nestlé develops initiatives and actions for people and families, for communities and for the planet.

"We enhance the quality of life for everyone, today and in the future"

The inclusion of Nestlé Hellas in the leadership group of The Most Sustainable Companies in Greece demonstrates our commitment to Sustainable Development and the way in which we have integrated it into our business operation and also into the vision we have for the future of the company. A vision driven by our purpose to highlight the power of nutrition, enhancing the quality of life for everyone, today and in the future.

Nestlé Greece was founded in 1973. From then until today, we have been pursuing the same purpose and values based on respect, for ourselves, for others, for diversity, for the future. And those who are motivated by these values are our people who are always at the heart of the company. At Nestlé we put our energy and resources where the power of food can make the biggest difference to people's lives, to protecting and enhancing the environment and to creating value.

Faced with the great challenges that we are called to face collectively, such as climate change, it is necessary to align with the priorities and imperatives set by the rapidly changing modern environment in order to continue to responsibly produce long-term value for the Greek business community as well as for the society in which we operate. Because businesses prosper when societies prosper.
