Nestlé Group, Thailand
Nestle’s history in Thailand began on October 18th 1893, with the first advertisement for “Milkmaid” sweetened condensed milk in the Bangkok Times. Trading was successfully established via imports and by 1947 a distribution company, “Pronesiam” Inc., had been set up for all Nestle products. In 1968, in response to increasing demand for Nestle goods in Thailand and favourable investment conditions, Nestle took the first step towards creating a local manufacturing base.
Today, Nestle Group Thailand has 6 plants and employs 2,800 people. Nestle produces and distributes its food & beverages products throughout the country under such famous brand names as Nestle BEAR BRAND, Nestle MILO, NESCAFE, Nestle COFFEE-MATE, NESVITA, Nestle PURE LIFE, and Nestle Ice Cream and is well-known and respected by consumers for its high quality products.
Nestle’s involvement in Thailand is not limited simply to producing a wide range of food & beverages products. It is also committed to fostering economic and social development, to instigating and promoting environmental programmes, to implementing crop improvement schemes for local farmers, and to achieving self-sufficiency through the widest possible use of local raw materials.
