Nutritional Therapies across the Healthcare Continuum
Healthcare is changing rapidly and now more than ever, people are increasingly involved in their own nutrition, health and wellness.
Nestlé Health Science is an innovative and fundamentally different type of company: we provide premium quality science-based nutritional health solutions to enable consumers, as well as patients through their healthcare providers, to live healthier lives.
Guided by our Purpose, Focused on our Mission
Empower healthier lives through nutrition for consumers, patients and their healthcare partners
- Provide trusted superior nutritional products and resources to maintain, recover and enhance the quality of life at all stages
- Deliver science-based innovation that meets unique nutrition-related consumer, patient and healthcare provider needs
Our three Business Areas
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 at 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.
Consumers are increasingly health-aware and informed, looking for nutritional solutions to help them lead healthier lives. In consumer care, we are combining science-based innovation and global reach to address individuals’ unmet and emerging needs. Our products are found in pharmacies, retail shops and on the internet. We are focused on the fast developing areas of healthy aging, healthy growth, gut health and metabolic health, obesity in particular.
In 2020 we acquired Zenpep® and Viokace®, medications for the treatment of Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) due to cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis and other conditions. These medications are indicated in patients who cannot digest food normally because their pancreas does not make enough enzymes. Our experience in cystic fibrosis, gastrointestinal disease and other therapeutic areas for ZENPEP and VIOKACE give us a good understanding of patients' needs, while providing education and support to our solid network of healthcare professionals.
