CONSUMERS AT THE HEART OF OUR RESEARCH: A mother and son test new products for Nestlé Nutrition, USA. There is close collaboration with external health professionals, with whom we share our research results, throughout the product development process.
Innovation is one of Nestlé's key competitive advantages. We have more than 140 years of research, development and scientific know-how. While there is a great deal of pure and applied science research that takes place in our global R&D centres, Nestlé ensures that the consumer, and the consumer benefit, remains at the core of all our activities.
Nestlé R&D addresses three areas of benefits for consumers:
- Safety and Quality - this underpins all Nestlé products
- Nutrition and Health
- Taste, Texture and Convenience
Look at some of our past, present and future innovations in these areas.
