Pre-1900

Nourishing Egyptian Homes Since 1870



For over 100 years, Nestlé has been nourishing Egyptian homes and sustaining healthy foundations for “Good food, Good life”.

We are proud that we’ve earned the trust of Egyptians and that Nestlé has become a staple name in Egyptian homes, providing them with tasty and healthy food & beverage products for all occasions and all life stages. As we continue to grow, we hope to keep fortifying the foundations of healthy living and nutrition for a 100 more years to come, in a country that opened its doors to us well over 100 years ago.


Pre 1900 – The Dawning of a New Era


 

The twentieth century is dawning and Egypt is transforming in ways it never had before. Ambitious … and dreaming to create a ‘Paris along the Nile’. Records indicate that in 1870 a salesman by the name of E. Serra sold 230 tins of Nestlé’s Infant Food in Alexandria, making it the first sale of a Nestlé product in the Ottoman Empire and Middle East. Three years later, a salesman named Sommer sold the same product in Cairo until finally the year 1900 witnessed Nestlé’s first trademark registration in Egypt.
