Nestlé Health Science (NHSc) is a company on a mission and on the move, motivated by the opportunity to forge a major therapeutic role for nutrition in the management of health and establish a new industry between food and pharmaceuticals.

At the same time, scientific understanding of health, disease and the potential of nutrition – as an integral part of managing health and disease – is growing.
