In 1836, after a course on pharmaceutical studies in Frankfurt, Germany, Henri Nestlé decided to relocate to Switzerland, and launched his first business in Vevey in 1843.
It was a bold advertising claim, but sound facts lay behind it. An unswerving dedication
to product quality drove George and Charles Page, the American brothers and Nestlé
forefathers who built Europe’s first condensed milk factory in 1866.
The grand prize is a unique trip to Switzerland for two to explore the historic district of Vevey the birthplace of our company. You will also have a chance to visit “nest” museum and walk in the footsteps of Henri Nestlé and other inventors who shaped the brand so dear to the hearts of people around the globe.
All 12 stories have to be attempted to qualify as a valid participant for the raffle
draw. Also, you have to answer a minimum 4 stories correctly to enter the Grand Prize
