Since 1912, Nestlé has been nourishing Malaysians through our quality brands and products, whilst maintaining our Halal excellence and integrity. This is in line with our purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future as well as our promise of delivering GOOD FOOD, GOOD LIFE to all.
Our commitment to providing quality products to Malaysians dates back over 100 years ago. Nestlé began in Malaysia in 1912 as the Anglo-Swiss Condensed Milk Company in Penang and later, due to growth and expansion made a move to Kuala Lumpur necessary in 1939.
Following the nation’s independence in 1957, there came a need for increased job opportunities and more product options. Following this, in the mid-1960s, we began our Culinary Products Division producing exciting culinary solutions under the well-loved MAGGI trademark. This led to the establishment of our first manufacturing facility in Malaysia.
Today, Nestlé Malaysia operates 6 factories and employs more than 4,600 employees nationwide, producing over 500 Halal-certified products. Many of our key brands have now become a part of Malaysian households for generations including Malaysian favourites such as MILO, MAGGI, NESCAFÉ and KITKAT. Having been present in the nation and in the hearts of Malaysians for over a century, we are firmly committed to offering the very best in quality, nutrition and taste.
Creating Shared Value is the way we do business, which states that in order to create long-term value for shareholders, we must also create value for society. It goes beyond compliance and sustainability.
