Research & Development

 

Within R&D we’re committed to developing innovative foods, beverages and nutritional health solutions – to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.

The 3,900 employees working within our function worldwide – from scientists and engineers to regulatory experts and culinary chefs – are key to our success. They help drive company growth through breakthrough research that is translated quickly into products and services that are good for consumers and good for the planet.

By joining us, you could be working on everything from the next generation of plant-based foods and infant or maternal nutrition products, to cutting-edge machine systems, sustainable packaging solutions or new analytical technologies to ensure food safety. Technical support for Nestlé factories worldwide is a vital part of our role too.

I enjoy being a product developer in Nestlé R&D because the environment gives me the freedom to create and explore. The people here have an open mindset in terms of trying new things and I’m empowered to make decisions and act – to deliver safe, high quality and sustainable products. Our function is full of amazing people and resources that I can easily access, to support my personal and professional development.
