Our History: The Growing Years

Nestlé & Gerber: A lifetime of growing healthy, happy babies.

Nestlé’s infant nutrition roots date back over 140 years to 1867 in the town of Vevey, Switzerland, when a local pharmacist named Henri Nestlé saved the life of a neighbour’s child who was unable to breastfeed. The baby thrived on a special nourishing mixture Henri created. It was the world’s first infant formula. Since then Nestlé has continued to research, innovate and support the unique needs of growing infants around the world. 

Gerber’s history of raising happy, healthy babies started in 1927, in the kitchen of Daniel and Dorothy Gerber with a simple yet innovative idea and some helpful advice from their pediatrician to hand strain solid foods for their 7 month old daughter. The couple continued this novel, time saving approach to feeding their little one by straining all natural fruits and vegetables at the family’s Fremont Canning Company. In 1959 Gerber continued its history of baby innovation by developing the “safety button cap” the very first tamper evident packaging – helping to protect babies everywhere.

Nestlé and Gerber share a philosophy of giving babies the best in everything we do. Together we offer a lifetime of trusted infant nutrition, giving your baby the best start – with every start.
