Nestlé

Henri Nestlé, started his company as a pioneer in the baby food industry. He was was likely inspired by his family’s history as 7 of his 13 siblings died before reaching adulthood.

Nestlé sold the company to his business associates and retired just seven years after he founded the company. Though the name “Nestlé” has since gone on to be associated with many different products, mostly chocolate based products and other sweets, the only Nestlé to be involved with the company left when their only product was baby formula.
