Products Nestle first appeared in 1866, Swiss pharmacist and chemist Henry Nestlé (Henri, nee Heinrich Nestlé) was developing a mixture of cow's milk, wheat flour and sugar that could replace mother's milk for an infant. With the help of a product of his own preparation, he managed to save a premature infant sentenced to death by doctors, who could not eat either mother's milk or any substitute, so the first mixture for babies was born, called Farine Lactee Nestlé (Milk flour Nestle), which later saved more than one baby.
It should be said that the very invention of an infant formula that replaces mother's milk was perceived and continues to be perceived very ambiguously. Opponents of their use point out that many children's lives have been claimed by the misuse of mixtures due to illiteracy and poverty in developing countries, as well as because of the unprecedentedly aggressive advertising and imposition of artificial feeding products in Africa, South America, Southeast Asia. . And to this day the company Nestle has come under attack and organized boycott by many organizations for its policy of promoting blends, resulting in almost 20 years of rejection Nestle from public advertising of infant formula in developing countries. And signing Nestle "International Code WHO UNICEF for the sale of artificial feeding products for children. To be fair, it should be noted that Nestle, as the largest manufacturer in the industry, has received the most attacks and accusations, in fact, addressed to the entire system and almost all major baby food manufacturers.
In the 19th century, such questions did not occur to anyone, the product quickly spread throughout Europe and the Nestlé brand “sounded”. In 1874, Henry Nestlé founded the company Nestle, giving her his name, it would be more accurate to say that he gave the company the name of his family. The whole structure of the brand is saturated with the idea of family, family values, motherhood and care. Nestle, in the German dialect native to Henry Nestlé, Nestlé is a small nest. Well, what could keep a far-sighted and wise pharmacist from transferring his family coat of arms - a nest with a bird feeding three chicks - to the company's trademark. In 1868, Henry Nestle received a 15-year patent for his logo, later confirmed by the new owners of the company. Later, an inscription is added to the logo, completing the formation of the trademark. In 1988, another change takes place with the logo - there are two chicks. Where did the third child go? It's simple - buyers should associate a bird family with their family, and by this time in most families in Europe and America there were exactly two children, this became a kind of standard. It would be interesting to know where is the father of this lovely family? Maybe it is symbolized by the oak branch on which the nest is located? And most likely he is at work, working hard to bring some money in his beak to buy food.
And today, renamed into a logo, this cute drawing captivates us and evokes thoughts of a small family business, making it possible to forget that the company occupies about 1.5 % of the entire global food and beverage market, surpassing all competitors.

But if we take a closer look at it and allow ourselves to fantasize about a possible distant future, we will see how the predictions of science fiction writers will come true: humanity, having exhausted natural resources, will begin to eat exclusively synthetic food, such tubes and pills with lunches and dinners, that's when paradise for the corporation will come. So let's save nature!
