1975-2000s – The Globalization Years
In 1987, Nestle S.A. acquired Industrie du Froid expanding its product range to include ice cream and yoghurt and on 26th October 1988 Nestlé Egypt S.A.E. was officially registered.
Months later, the construction of the first production facility in 6th of October city led to the manufacturing of MAGGI® bouillon in 1990 and CERELAC® in 1991, followed by re-packing NIDO®, NESCAFE® and NESQUIK® in 1991, 94 and 98 respectively.
At the second plant constructed in 6th October, ice cream manufacturing started in 1994. Since then, Nestlé brands have increased in popularity, offering generations of Egyptians a diverse range of food and beverage products catering to all life stages.
More so, Nestlé Egypt has maintained the same core values upheld by Henri Nestle more than 140 years ago, by giving back to the Egyptian community and creating long-term sustainable value for the society in which it operates.
Over its long history in the market, Nestle has grown to become a regional office serving Egypt, Libya and Sudan with more than 3000 employees in 9 business units and 3 factories dedicated to the manufacturing of dry goods, ice cream and water products.
With over 100 years of shared history, Nestle remains committed to its promise in fortifying the foundations of nutrition, health and wellness in Egypt.
