Founded in 2011, Nestle 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 supplement brands.
NHSc is headquartered in Switzerland and we have more than 5,000 employees around the world, with a presence in 66 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, long- and short-term care facilities, and homecare and are typically reimbursed by insurers or public health services. The current portfolio is focused on Pediatric Care & Food Allergy, Adult Medical Care and Acute Care.
