Unlocking the Power of Food

Our Purpose

Unlocking the power of food to enhance quality of life for everyone, today and for generations to come. That is our purpose.

We are the Good food, Good life company. We believe in the power of food to enhance lives. Good food nourishes and delights the senses. It helps children grow healthy, pets thrive, parents age gracefully and everyone live life to the fullest. Good food brings us together. Good food also respects our planet and protects resources for future generations.

At Nestlé, we constantly explore and push the boundaries of what is possible with foods, beverages, and nutritional health solutions to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future. We focus our energy and resources where unlocking the power of food can make the greatest difference to the lives of people and pets, protect and enhance the environment, and generate significant value for our shareholders and stakeholders alike.

We have defined three overarching ambitions for 2030 which guide our work and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Values

Guided by our values rooted in respect, we want to shape a better and healthier world. We're continuing the legacy of our founder Henri Nestlé who created a life-saving infant cereal more than 150 years ago.

Creating Shared Value

As the world’s largest producer of food and beverage, our vision is a future where none of our products end up in nature, and where the products that Canadians know and love, contribute to a healthy future for the generations to come. With our global footprint and vast supply chains, we understand the severity of climate change and we have made significant commitments and investments in climate initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint.
