Nestle's Worldwide Research & Development network
With 24 research technology centers worldwide, Nestlé has the largest food research and development network of any food company. The Nestlé Research Center, based near Lausanne, Switzerland, is the world’s largest private facility for nutrition-related research. Fremont, Michigan is home to the NDC Fremont (Nestlé Development Center) and is the global center of excellence for all Nestlé baby food, meals, and drinks.
Nestlé’s Worldwide Research & Development network provides three fundamental areas of benefits for parents: safety and quality; nutrition and health; and taste, texture, and convenience.
How Research Benefits Your Children
Nestlé and Gerber have helped achieve many nutrition breakthroughs. In 2007, Nestlé introduced the first infant formula in the United States with probiotics—beneficial B. Lactis cultures similar to the type found in breastmilk—designed to help support baby’s healthy immune system and digestive health. We also reformulated our meals & snacks for toddlers by reducing trans fats, reducing the sodium content, and using healthier fat sources.
